Reactions across social media:
*** African leaders put first their personal interests than anything else,It is obvious that their self-interest may not be the interest of the public at large. Corruption, nepotism, egoism and abuse of power are the major characteristics of African leaders! Shame
*** See how they disgraced someone’s father with flogging.. what if the Man farts in the process.. #justice for a man trying to feed his family.
*** The local government chairman should not be allowed into the US
