Actually it would be an easy task for the traffic police to stop this nonsense if they would do their job as supposed. Unfortunately corruption is deeply rooted in the... continue reading

One of the reasons for this ist the climate changing so that in Central Africa the habitat conditions get worse and the people migrate to... continue reading
