Great, no bad treatments to him. Love to you guys Gamei. The politicians must creat more jobs, introduce minimum wages to unemployment, elderly people, handicapés,single parents then social protection for all Africans, this measures will prevent people from stealing aswell. The systèm of government and governance must change completly in this African continent.Am proud of you guys Gamei for showing goodness .
