    So this new fellow will also have to be protected from his voters and other countrymen via Defender 4WD, armed guards etc. From now onward that electorate will be owned by this amathithuma and family until doomsday.

    it is not an uncommon phenomena for leaders to loose touch with reality. We no longer need political pundits to tell us what is happening but psychiatrists.

    MR will offer every MP a Ministerial post just to win favouritism so he can retain the Executive Presidency!

    The amount of taxpayer funds being wasted by this Govt. is colossal!
