    While all you spending your little pennies feasting day and night, the Chinese are in school night and day, studying how to take away your dignity and country. Soon all you will suck salt. These are the people whose church ministers always say is “looking down on us” when they gone. Meaning, they are in heaven 😂😂😂😂

    That’s what these Red Ants do best, sewo and party. They even make us believe that they put significant emphasis on patriotism. Let me tell you all, this has absolutely nothing to to with patriotism. It’s nothing but shameless propaganda for the man in charge who financed this entire charade with our passport money. World creole music festival brought to all you by Bonnie and Clyde from Morne Daniel! Some of you with the red bible and attractive females might even receive VIP tickets free of charge if you play your cards right. Corrupt Dominica…

    Boy see how our country get nou. You not hearing of any serious firm or business place hiring young people, not even what we have in place as government. You not hearing of any plan to develop the country. All we hearing on the radio or social media is Sewo and more sewo and friends of Skerrit arrested for money laundering, fraud and CBI passport fraud that now forcing us to get a visa to enter the UK, a country we once had their passport.
    Apart from these two things sewo and CBI passport fraud nothing else is happening
