  1. I’m certain, beyond doubt that there is something sinister about this case! There appear to be no corruption whatsoever. Why are these guys scandalising Hope? The real corrupt individuals are sipping on whisky right now.

  2. don’t forget 60k for such a small commission is a lot of money plus this ZLDC has been notorious for hiring suspect DGs who have left under a cloud of indiscipline….she failed to follow procedure what remains is if she benefitted from the same or abused her powers of office

  3. Corruption is corruption, no matter how small it is. Don’t forget this sickness always start small, chagwa started with the widow now it’s mansions in eswatini.let her be jailed.
