    Thatswhy I dont like these guys-indians & Chinese are just bunch of useless people-I dont know why we did open the doors for these criminals. Take example of Limbe-the same buildings for years they dont even want to paint them,if so then they are forced by government. Nothing we can benefit frm them-we only help them to make more millions with their cheap labour. Seriously they must pray hard coz the next generation will chase them away. Bravo to our Cops.
