  1. So sad. South Africa is killing his innocent children. No wonder this country is sliding in to chaos. God’s judgement is upon this nation.
    And until we begin to honor God (Romans 1:28) we will always be under His judgment.

  2. These are staggering figures, and exhausting the causes of such would take too long. Student need to be versed about contraceptive methods since we cant deny that they are having sex and most probably they wont stop. And the boys that are busy brain washing these girls need some check up, we have been blaming girls for too long. Boys or males are natural hunters we need to tame that nature because what we see in society is nature, people are meant to reproduce the only difference is that it is happening too fast and too!!
