  • 12 Apr 2023 in National Assembly: Thank you, Hon. Speaker. One of the priorities for us as a Ministry is institutional reforms within the security sectors, immigrations, citizen services, prisons and correctional services.

He has highlighted the historical context of the quagmire we find ourselves in today. view
