  48. i think i will share my ideology with the electoral commission. my idea for the 2016 polls. i think elections must be conducted for two days. day one voters must be allow to vote from 7am in the morning to 3pm in the afternoon. so the counting of the votes will be done in broad daylight, so the collation of ballot boxes to the collation center will be done in broad day. the next day the others so could vote do theirs the second day to 3pm so everything is done in the board day light.

  49. nana dont wory GOD has already chosen u
