Letter From The President: Nimumu?s Accident

My heart was gladdened when I saw on TV that Nimumu was trying to walk in hospital at the beginning of the week. I am praying that he returns to the campaign trail as soon as possible, i.e. just about a couple of weeks before the actual voting. I hope he comes out strong and able to walk without any aid. But I know this shall not be.

Tata Mills? campaign team is using Nimumu?s accident to win sympathy votes. And a lot of Sikaman citizens are falling for this trick. I?ve heard that some people have decided to vote for the NDC, simply because somebody tried to kill Nimumu ? a hapless MP who was fortunate to have himself elected as a running mate but was unfortunate enough to almost get himself killed. I thank God that ?almost? doesn?t count. Now he?s alive and well and he must come out quickly to tell us the truth about his accident.

You know when the accident occurred, I thought of two possibilities.
