The vanquished are in shock! That said, when one reflects on it once the ...

A truly mindboggling event has just occurred. I don’t think the sleepy Media has woken up to its significance yet! In most of the Local Government Bodies, a local Divisional Secretary has been tasked with the job that these elected members did. So who puts up the bulbs in the street corners once they have burnt out! They will manage ...

Minister Badiudeen insists that any constructions that we see outside the perimeter are LEGAL and that he has obtained state license for that building, corroborated by officials. The basic question is where is the National Park Boundary? Where does other state land end, what is the buffer zone, what is state land on which licenses can be given, and who ...

Following my critique of the media and their misuse of their very real power in a democracy to influence public opinion, there will be another instance this morning outside Parliament as forces for, and possibly forces (paid thugs) stacked against the 19th Amendment are likely to gather, and it is a question of assessing the situation before a senior police ...

The Fourth Estate after January 8th 2015 is a disgrace. They have not risen to the occasion and endorsed the will of the people for checks and balances and the end to unadulterated corruption. The most forceful and demanded promise was that the 19th Amendment would be passed in Parliament as soon as practical. When there is a bunch of ...
