  1. WHAAAT?
    ‘heaping praise’ on the Minister of Education who did not avert this situation from ever since!

  2. Strange, the usual suspects don’t seem to be happy. None commenting on this.
    Perhaps you all think the government would not have been able to meet the demands of the teacher. Well. Let’s see who’s next. The Nurses? Or garbage collectors. UPP working hard behind the scenes.
