    • Please leave us alone whenever issues have nothing to do with us the so called Kachemas. Really, what has this topic got do with us? Further, you need to know that whoever does not herd cattle is poor because they cannot afford to own them. Now you see, even your useless prayers to your Sangomas have not helped you in any way.

  4. Funny!!!!!!!!!! You claim high unemployment when the suspects were working for the same people killed!!!!!!!!!!!!!Are you being political or just you don’t want to see anything at all. In short it is not unemployment levels creating this. It is sheer selfishness and lack of respect for human life.
