because of my sickness so I didn’t see
anybody during their visit.
What the nurses told me after I woke up was
that the minister asked the delegation to bring
me the money. I should’ve asked further but I
didn’t so after I finished the interview on the
radio station yesterday and told my wife about
what I said concerning who donated the
money, it was then that she told me that it
was the president who sent it not the woman.
My wife is the one who collected the money.
She told me that it was the president who
sent the money but it went through the
woman because she is the minister for our
industry” Wayoosi told
