"The mess this boy created no man can correct it,"advobarryroux captioned the snap.

"It can actually be rectified. Coz cemeteries keep records for grave numbers and whoever is buried there. So it's just a matter of searching for a particular grave number and returning the name there. Easy. U just need to think outside the box."
"The purpose is to sell the steel and buy Nyaope, the country is losing war against the biggest pandemic Nyaope."
"The energy he spent doing all that simply means he has the energy to work. If we are to point fingers, we should direct them at our parliamentarians who receives huge monthly salaries at the expense of the poor for promising them employment and economic freedom."
