  1. So when our minister of agriculture decides to visit Germany, it will be all over the media in Germany, right?

  2. Anything to develop the country and improve her economic status is not good news to the opposition. We know that you are praying hard that Pf fails so that yu can have points to campaign against. Live above the politics of hate and criticize logically otherwise you’ll become irrelevant.
