He said that in his religion: "We believe what will happen will happen. At the time we were upset but what we believe in within our religion is what is destined to happen will happen.

"We do not blame anybody for what happened. What I believe is [the crash] is more of an excuse for his death.

"He was meant to go on that day, that is our belief, that his time was up. That was his place, that was his time to die.
