  1. Mwana wa zaka 6 kutuma kukatsuka mbale kuchitsime eish koma makolo enanu…tingopempha mulungu kuti mzimu wa mwanayo uwuse muntendele.

  2. A 6 year old is not old enough to be let loose. Parents MUST take full responsibility of their children & control every single movement but I guess not with irresponsible young mothers we have today. This is very sad.

  3. Giving a wild steed only timothy hay or perhaps alfalfa too abundant in healthy proteins will cause the equine to struggle with
    colic as well as experience needlessly.
