Committee Secretary Stella Mhura said K 8.5 million is needed for specialist surgery in Harare, Zimbabwe to be followed by treatment.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t this dude a UDF cadet — a so-called “Young Democrat”? A Chair should certainly do something about him. You can’t just use and abuse young people and then abandon them when they’re in despair.

Eishiiiii I wish u a very quick recovery Mr Sande,

I grew up studying some of your literature books, one of it titled ” IT Rained By Akwete L. Sande” which u talked about Domatsi river. It was very interesting book and I wonder why it was removed in our school syllabus ??

Government plz these are the people we need to care most and not these bustards stealing our taxes the likes of Chisale and company give them comfortable beds and food in cell.

Let them rot there and care Mr Akwete Sande plz.
