Africa in general. More so, as the biblical saying goes, “Only Continue reading “DONALD TRUMP: A TRAGIC HERO?”

We Can be Wrong so Many Times Judging others Without Knowing the True Story Behind Their Actions.

 

My boss drove a luxury car every day and it was my duty to greet him and to open the gates for him, as I worked as a watchman in his villa. But he never responded back to my greetings.
