    Those same foolice are involved in most of these incidents. Do you really believe that any teacher, nurse , police, soldier can survive on that salary. Since independence , the salary structure for a bloated govt. bureaucracy has been a challenge….That is the reason why we need an economic plan that will foster private industries and manufacturing . Those with money are holding on to it because of the political uncertainty and non inclusion of other groups in development ⛳️
