  3. Just outside the Police HQ in Lsk there is a group of guys always sitting under a tree who inconjuction with some officers are invovled in corruption..ie taking funds from foreign african illegal imigrants inoder for them to acquire valid documents like NRC’s from deceased zedians or through fake personal data. this all cost only a few pini since these coruppt guys are desperate for a few bucks in their empty pockets.

Wake up don’t let the weeds grow together with the maize. Tired of a poor harvest!Look after the policeman, teacher and soldier.
