    The Cleric should have bought his own farm rather than rely on “handouts”. Everyone knows that the land grabs were an enrichment exercise for SHEFS and if you joined the frenzy know you are vulnerable

    Well what do you expect from the Military Govt. It will be worse than the dictatorial govt of RGM. Its a case of from the frying pan into the fire. Now it gives it the more reason for people to unite and vote this JUNTA-PF out once and for all.

    We see it from the beginning – these soldiers are out to line their pockets! There is no legacy to restore here but only to trash it!
