oppostion for the country’s problems.

fed up and stood against the ways of whites here. You know what it means to

sacrifice, and you have showed that commitment once again.”

purpose of re-colonising this country. We should resolutely stand against

such evil plans. We must remain

enemies bent on causing all sorts of destabilisation in the country,” he
