We living in a country where campaign for next election began immediately elections results are announced. Opposition parties sat back waiting for the government to fail to give them chance to win the next election. While they are waiting for government to fail without any alternative solution to our problems they engaged in propaganda and lies to seek sympathy from the citizens.
If we don't move away from these attitudes I don't know when this nation will attempt to move forward and nobody is waiting for us.
