    You wonder why the police never issues a statement saying that the man was arrested and charger. Now we see why. Because it’s a magistrates husband. What if it were a poor man’s child? His name would be l over. That injustice will end one day. Maybe when christ come. Wicked suckers!

    The situatuon us very, very sad for both parties, i feel the pain, whereas, on the other hand, why mentioning magistrate husband, we as a people need to have positivity, the magistrate did not do anything, all that is needed in the future is the name of the person with the situation. We need to be caring and show love and sympathy and stop pulling down, im very sad for both side, we need each other to survive and much prayer is needed for these battles.
