  1. Stepping down is part of the game.
    Politics is just a game. Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose. It’s not a do or die affair. As we congratulate the winners, it’s an opportunity to tell the runner up to wake up, cheer up and prepare for election next season.

  2. If there will be biase stepping down wouldn’t stop it, in my opinion the opposition party should accept defect and let peace rein. The country has other important issues to handle.

  3. Very good. She is not qualified.
    Interesting update. Thank you for the heads up. More greese to your be elbow
