      How can your accent change when you moved to Europe after the age of twelve? You are a liar. Ask specialists in language acquisition.

    @ba folosho “PSYSCOSOCIAL” is a condition that one suffers after demeaning a legally elected president of a country then jailed, so the condition develops whilst in jail cos. of mixing with cadres like mwaliteta and ur own house workers. This centre will definately have HH as a client soon
