A scene of instant justice

Arrest These Devious Guys

Monday, February 20, 2017 A few days ago the police were compelled to issue a statement to warn the public against instant justice.

Members of the Hajj Board taking the oath of office

Extortion on our roads

Thursday, February 16, 2017 The presence of the police is an insurance against crime in any vicinity. At least that is the conventional wisdom.

Love and death; a ‘romantic’ union [Article]

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 But when we love, we must do so knowing that those we love we will lose someday. Do I in anyway intend to propagate fear?

Beyond The Missing Cars

Wednesday, February 15, 2017 There are more serious issues to tackle in the country than the subtle thievery of state cars in the name of their being sold to public officials who used them.
