  1. He was an officer here in Chiradzulu district a few yes ago,and anali kunja for other missions,,aaaa..this is so shameful abwana..

  2. The courts must set examples on such law enforcers who have become beasts themselves. He should have known better that doing this was unlawful and evil. If he can do this to his own wife, can he fail to do even worse actions to suspects?

  3. This is very very bad it’s good to hear both sides what went wrong to reach this point
