    If he has epilepsy, he would not have passed his Medical Test. If he had been discharged from Hospital clear of his ailment, it needs to be investigated why he developed it again just discharged from hospital... it means he has not been treated properly. Everything will be swept under the carpet.

    Patriots are too busy trying to manage the collected funds, not understanding the constitution of the land and falsifying reports to believe they can stay in power forever claiming to safeguard all citizens
