  1. Why concern yourself with global peace when you are failing to ensure peace within your country. You can’t have peace when you are suppressing people’s human rights. There will be no peace until the rule of law is respected and the petition is heard.

    • How do i take peace messages from JK and mac eleven, when they are well known pf cadres, can’t even remember last time I listen to their music.
