One part said he shared palliatives with his money during the pandemic. So, when the real ones came he planned on sharing it on his birthday. 😁😀

It's about a lack of accountability. Were the palliatives given to you to share on your birthday or during the lockdown? Your birthday is your business, you could have done a relief project for your constituents using your own resources.

So you Kept palliatives to share on your birthday like party pack??? Deceive the people that you are a charitable leader giving back and not a hoarder of the provisions that have been made for their well-being?!!

Shame on you. If you were really in touch with your constituency, that’s even far. If you were in touch with the residents of your street, they would have come out en mass to shield your property. For your missing clothes, you will see it being worn in your neighborhood.
