Something needs to be done about these issues with all urgency because we cannot continue like this. President has given us free water and also subsidized our light for us but there’s one thing which we need to make the government take cognizance of and that’s the price for foodstuff in this country. The market women have increased their prices to the highest levels and that has made life unbearable because we cannot buy food. Mr. President please you need to do something about it for us.”
