Congrats to mcp NEC for separating sheeps and hungry dogs, i think things will be in track in southern region.


Opposition parties must be very careful. The DPP could be behind all the squabbles in the main opposition parties. Their aim is to weaken opposition parties from within so that come next elections they will not have any credible opposition. Please also stop washing every dirty linen in public.
