  2. Realman

    That minister must be fired . Remember the Bible says, “to test metal it must passed in fire. Same to you

  3. Thuli

    The minister must be fired but knowing our government he will definitely get away with it. It’s the new normal.

  4. Likando Numwa

    They have been found with a Government trophy. That’s the right charge under the wild life Act. Then investigations should establish the motive for possession of the trophy.
    The police usually lose cases in court because of carelessness or ignorance. You cannot outrightly charge someone found with a live snake with witchcraft.
