DCCG turns paranoid

Dear Editor – It is becoming clearer to the general public that this representative government   (DCCG) willfully chooses to remain paranoid amidst all the revelation of their controversial decisions made since they took over leadership on December 2014.

Who is behind Alfred Sasako?

Royalty payments

Dear Editor – Your newspaper carried a very interesting article on the APID saga with a screamer headline, which unfortunately (in my humble view) reduces your reputable paper to one of public ridicule.
