Alex Bell hosts a review edition of the show to highlight the South African government’s decision to start closing refugee reception offices across the country.

They pursued their own interests at the expense of the nation; and Muviri says discrimination on party lines by ZANU PF, in the distribution of food aid, seeds and fertiliser, summed up the fact that we have one party, ZANU PF, governing the country. The sad thing is that the MDC is helping to authenticate this one-sided GNU.
