Quotes

Another student only identified as Catherine told FrontPageAfrica: "I am happy doctor Korkor has returned but I am totally not convinced he is Ebola free. I will shake his hands after 21 days."
"The experiences we have had since independence show that our belief that we can run our affairs is wrong, our hopes that we will be a secure and prosperous nation is dashed, and our struggles for independence were pointless. 'What we should be doing now is to remind ourselves of our failure and engage our minds on how to succeed. It does not call for celebration because there is nothing to celebrate.'"
