    • There’s just one fertility clinic in each home, the bedroom. The woman must be willing to get a serious dicking down. If she does not want the huffing and puffing from a sweaty man, then she is barren.

  1. THIS IS FUNNY, SOMEONE STOLE A CHICKEN AND WAS JAILED 25 YEARS IMPRISONMENT BECAUSE HE HAD A DANGEROUS WEAPON IN HIS HAND AND SOMEONE STEALING A HUMAN BABY CAUGHT AND JAILED FOR 5 YEARS IMPRISONMENT.

    CHICKEN OR BABY? BOTH ARE EASTERNERS.

    • By why are the Wakos stealing from Bembas? I thought it is the Bembas who are supposed to be stealing from everybody else?

  2. Bamatambula i pray that God allow satan to visit you and see if you’ll not need what you call useless prayers( The so called miracle churches).It is my prayer that the problem you’ll encounter will chase you to enter the places you called “The so called miracle churches” there is life in God, OK you’ll come and find us thank you.
