  1. By the facts of what she has shown to support, do you really think she is pro-education for the majority?? Considering the fact that the majority come from lesser well off communities.

  2. The jury is out on that one and it’s certainly too early to tell at this stage. It’ll definitely be interesting to see how this pans out in the coming weeks, months and years.

    Thanks for commenting!
