  1. The prime minister is AFC, the home affairs minister is AFC, the tourism minister is AFC, I am sure many ambassadors will be AFC, this simplistic view will only cause damage to this coalition, stop all your nonsense, do you think the AFC is run by stupid people? Don’t you think this was done by agreement? The WPA has an input too, don’t they deserve something? Come on people, stop this bull shit ok.

  2. All plum positions are for APNU – foreign affairs, international & economic cooperation, finance and officer of president; hmmnn…
