  1. Police investigating themselves??
    Doesn’t make sense to me at all.

    There have been too many such police deaths, deaths, violence and chaos perpetrated by NPP vigilante groups since the NPP assumed power last year.

    For how long can we continue on this disturbing trajectory??

    This is not a matter that should be politicised.
    We live in fear daily!!
