    Ichalo ichi muli ubupupu, mwebantu bushe tulelola kwisa. Everyday its the same stories of corruption? Am suggesting that the sentence for corruption be that of defilement, or rape utubantu tulekakwako ama 20 year’s or 30 with hard labour and it should be none bailable. Its too much.

    There is too much corruptions in this country. This man here is a Tanzanian by origin and i don’t think if he was in his country the head of state can give him a chance
