  1. It’s said “do not look a gift horse in the mouth,” but in the mouse of this one I cannot avoid looking, it’s a visibly I’ll horse that is more of a nuisance than relief. Surely what will any business entity do with 3000 rtgs when in essence it is a salary that’s failing to sustain a civil servant!! Lord have mercy 🙏
