  1. If the sugar beans was donated then it means they were now in the process of being converted for personal use at the expense of the poor.

  2. Then it’s wiser for him to show the police the true origin of the sugar beans. Perhaps he intended to give them out during interface rallies with Amai Dr. Grace but events overtook him. Let’s give benefit of doubt and a chance to come clean at the court’s.

  3. its clear these guys are out to exterminate G40. Hapana fight against corruption apa. Real threat pama elections yanga iri ku G40
