Who We Are
Having 57 Years Independence

Today’s 09th October marks the 57th anniversary of our Independence. In the debilitating journey of 57 years we suffered many strokes, various conspiracies were hatched to undo the glorious event of 1962, here the governance was destabilized, our economy was strangulated, we were made politically paralyzed, socially isolated and every possible effort was made to make us comply with international dictations but we still survive. We have to identify and stand against all of those odds to make our country strong.

FOR GOD AND MY COUNTRY

Mr. Willis Bashasha.
