Santana! Loss is a loss, kwenikweni a ruling party kumaluza with all that cashgate money? Last time Bikoko lost with 2 votes today Bandawe lost with 1 vote yet money circulated and given out to concillors to vote for Bandawe. Your party santana lost both votes, position and money not forgetting peoples confidence. Pakanakhala palibe ndalama Bandawe wako akanapeza 2, but even using money dpp failed, cashgate money chosecho. This is a warning, stay like that mudzakomoka masiku akubwerewa baba, things are daily changing apart from blackouts, water shortages, cashgate and university clossures. GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL
