“We also have programmes for market men and women and artisans. We will give them soft loans to boost their business. The masses were those that voted for us, the masses will not suffer under this administration.”

The Vice-President also said “The development of our country should be of utmost importance to all of us. We should continue to proclaim it loud that corruption should not be tolerated. We have to keep saying it everywhere that no corrupt person would go scot-free.”
