    Mr. Photo-op himself will always ‘appear’ when our teams win honors for the country.
    However, when it was time to pay them their remunerations or help them resolve key issues the teams might have had, this moron was be nowhere to be found.
    Don’t know where this clown was fished out from but he is one useless, sorry excuse of a minister!

    On a much more important note, congrats to our wonderful lady warriors for yet again, bringing honor to our country. God bless you ladies !!!!
