  1. “”He said that he will ensure the reputation of the security forces is protected at every cost. “”

    Asia’s Mugabe the Warlord and his cohorts need to protect the war criminals to conceal his order as per acting DM to murder . may 2009.

    from now on all democratically elected will be warlords and dictators – fascist one people one nation. just like mainland Chinese Buddhist- the thugs of south Asia..

  2. No president or prime minister of a civilized country would ever dare to interfere with independent judiciary knowing they would be ridiculed so why did our so called independent judiciary comply?
