We must do something about the widening social inequality

With the exception of security, it is difficult to point to a department where the government has succeeded. The roll-out of Universal Primary Education and the National Agricultural Advisory Services, for example, were intended to diminish poverty levels and cause a shift in income from poor to rich.

We all know that thing is not cheap, and for someone working part time at a call centre, an iPhone 6 is not exactly within their salary range.

But two days later, she had a handbag I had never seen before. 01:00 02.07.2015 from channel Monitor Online

The blue velvet hugged her like an undersized body bag, emphasising all the wrong places. She had a wide shoulder blade and ample bosom, her dress left little to imagination, especially when it hugged her swollen belly and no, it was not a baby bump, just a really well rounded midsection. She looked a lot like the genie from Aladdin’s magic lamp for as our eyes descended, there was little else to see but a frumpy trail of velvet. 01:00 02.07.2015 from channel Monitor Online
