@DrBale1 said: This is the level of embarrassment we are now happy about. A minister is happy to withdraw service. You wonder, do you still serve the same people as minister? The statement would be good if you rejected the ministerial position and went private as you say.

@SavvyRinu said: As a politician, your duty is to the entire population, not just those who vote you. Your ambulance or other amenities are not a tool of political gain or retribution. Your actions are unethical and against the principles of democracy and good governance. Was your ambulance just to buy their votes or a needed amenity for your own people?
