  1. Virginia I regret voting for u, if I’m alive next election you lost 8 votes from my house hold ,my dad and brother died hours apart you said you would help in whatever way you can and my mother told you if u can’t help let her know because she knows the present situation where the previous government didn’t leave any money but I mean not a call to say yes I can or no I can’t
    Just another stupid politician, you could have called my home election day to ask if they went to vote already but a simple call just to show that u have a heart you couldn’t do that one smfh

  2. Perhaps you should pose for a picture with the gunmen if they catch them .
    This country is home to some of ugliest .

  3. While I applaud the efforts made by the minister and though it may have been genuine, photos were not necessary. At a time like this just the visit without the photo op would have been enough. I also hope that the minister visits the family of the other 15 people who have been murdered this year.
