    he should have been taken to KHMH…oh brother..forgot. Of course they, like the leader of our country do not enter those doors- they are better than that. Only the poor people go there to get killed since we can’t afford specialized care…

    Surprised there are not a lot more cycling accidents, try driving up the George Price Highway between the junction with Fabers Road and the Police Posts at 4:30 in the morning, Bikes with no reflectors, no lights, no high visibility clothing. It is dark, the bike cannot be seen, especially when a vehicle is coming towards you with only one eye on full beam.
