  2. Rumjattan fired two rogue police officers in the first two weeks. lol. Seems like all the others are good cops. Ibelieve
    fell asleep since. Taking his six months nap. When he wakes up, you better have enough rum for him.

  3. If the new Administration cannot provide security for the people, then they have FAILED as leaders.

  4. Bharat the coalition has a plan and they will smoke out all criminals. But i agree things are getting to be frightening. Too many robberies in couple of weeks. THIS IS TROUBLING..

  5. Some time ago just immediately after the election, I commented on the increasing levels of serious crimes and other forms of criminality since the new government got into office. Some bloggers wanted me dead judging by their responses. For some reason these bloggers seem to have disappeared as I cannot see any comments from them.
    While the new administration is hell bent on ethnic and political cleansing, innocent,hard working people are being robbed, shot and their homes desecrated every day. Mr Ramjattan is at his wits end and has no answer or strategy to stem the crime rate which is now spiralling out of control. They knew what had to be done during the election. They now hold the reigns of power and must immediately, do what they said they would do when they were making those promises now that they ere the executives

  6. Throw the book at this dirty lazy scum. These parasites need to be sent a very strong and clear message. Long hard sentences. This lot and those like him are a menace. They want everything someone else has but too lazy to work for it. Nothing but scum bloodsuckers.
