    “Please those surgical gloves are irritating me….Spaka please talk to HH….NO SURGICAL GLOVES IN PARLIAMENT,…..HH is a sicko”

    On top of germs HEHH fears being poisoned…….

    He has to live amongst very bitter people who are not happy at losing acsses to billions of dollars………

    These people will do anything to get rid of HEHH….they have lost billions….

    The president is very aware and suspicious this.

  6. Expectations are always high whn a new president in a new government addresses parliament for the first time because it marks the beginning of the new dawn people voted for. The silent majority who voted out the PF will also be paying attention as he takes the stand to speak. I hope HH and his team realise this. Very often in life u only hv one chance to impress.
