Anriette, it is just sad how our leaders treat us the way they are treating
us. They just dont think about the populace, once they and their
families and cronies are satisfied, they see other as nothing.

We need to as a mater of urgency strengthen the grassroots stand-up to the
oppressors who dont want anything good for the continent.
