FELLOW bought a mobile phone for K765 at a well-known phone retailer and was pleased with his purchase. He was even more pleased when later he saw the same model phone for sale by another retailer for K1229.

The motorist was very impressed with their efficiency — they checked for defects, including lights, horns, blinkers along with drivers licences. He said they were very polite and were even wearing neckties! If all police conducted themselves so professionally it would bring back more respect for the force.
