  1. How long will the exercise last cause this season people are buse with farming, do you think will work out and you will meet the target?

  2. This is great development. We are ensuring that there is no reason for any party to claim the elections were not free and fair. We are tired of one notorious party always claiming that they won based on winning in two provinces in a country that has 10 provinces- total madness if you ask me.
