  1. Japanese are true humanists. They do right things for developing countries and the needy with nil to nothing ulterior motive.

    The roads, clinic, schools they built in Zambia are of world class standards.

    Compare these with corrupting Chinese who do shoddy jobs and steal our resources in league with thugs in government.

    • That’s because they work hard …they dont waste time praying and wasting money on useless ministries like Godfreys
