“Those who did this must have a serious rethink because once they begin to spray bullets at a house, you know the possibility of stray bullet touching people is quite high and I think that we must thank God that nobody died.

“I want to advice that they should follow a more civilized and peaceful approach and it is also shameful that this kind of thing will happen and the government will not condemn it. No matter the level of disagreement we have, we all belong to the same political party”, he added.
