“Mothers are the bedrock of societies, our struggles are real, our tears are real, our pains are real. We want to thank you (Premier Veke) for all you have done for us mothers one way or the other,” she expressed.
“We understand the limited financial resources at the disposal of provincial members, yet our Ward Member and Premier never failed to see to our needs.
“Most times he simply avail his time to listen and provide words of advice as mitigating strategies for our struggles, he does not believe in cash nor hand out cash as means to end our struggles. This is the kind our leader we want and need.”
