APID issue

Dear Editor – May I ask Mr Alfred Sasako to stop using his pen to bark over APID issues as his fundraising drive to make ends meet. His recent explanation of his termination does not convince enough for the public, rather raised more questions over his credibility as a senior citizen striving for the good…

Miner’s attempt exposed
