  2. Seems like they need to have a prayer session over in Swetes. That village name calling too fast in the news this year. Hope the churches in Swetes see the need for some serious intercessory prayers.

  3. Not nights only speeding happens in the country side. I decided to take a nice drive to the old road areas the other day and many times I had to pull aside to avoid anyone colliding into my car. I am a young person I’m not old and I have good driving skills. The taxi men especially its like the tourists dem r run way…
