“We have been living in darkness for the past years and these MPs always come to our town to campaign and promised us but they end up deceiving us and not fulfilling their promises”.

“We can longer wait and so we are not going to allow them to campaign in our various towns because as we are getting closer to elections, they will be coming in their numbers. In fact, we will burn their cars if they dare visit our town”.

“This light issue has affected us so much because our children can no longer learn at night, our businesses have collapsed” one resident said, according to
