When they get acquainted with old products, company, places and environment, among others, they do not immediately change their minds to embrace the new but prefer the old.

To them, those who are critical of government of the day, are merely grumblers, who are envious of those who have utilised opportunities available by the government. Really?


If so, why is the country still in need of donor funding? Without NGOs in the country, many supermarkets will close shop because they are their assured customers - buying vaseline, books, soap, toys, uniforms, blankets, etc, for needy children.
