“As things stand, it’s good news,” Thomas told the audience. “He’s conscious; he’s talking. I think he’s a little bit embarrassed by all of this. He’s apologized deeply. [He’s] not one to like people making a fuss about him. Obviously, it’s too early to make any diagnoses, but the important thing is that Shaka is conscious. We’ve also spoken to his family, as you can imagine seeing that happen at the scene – there couldn’t be more to scare you in your family.”

Thomas added that they had spoken to Hislop’s Wife talked, “Things are looking good.”
