These arrests are exposing more evidence of the institutional corruption that plagues the country. Guess what is on the mind of many in the population is how long is the country’s leadership going to scrub soil out of government organizations before the clean shows?

Our president is the worst. He’s stealing 3 or 4 times as much as the last president. He’s selling our country to United States & China.
