    Mtsssw, they are showing the public as if they are doing something whereas they are doing nothing cos they all don’t have Kastelea in mind. If you want marshals to dedicate their lives in this work, rank every Marshal according to his/her rightfully rank. God is watching what u r doing with Kastelea money, oneday monkey go go market he no go come back.
