The criteria through which candidates are appointed for strategic positions in our country is corrupt. So the entire nation's future is jeopardised.

The Bible does not mince its words on this matter: "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." (Prov. 29.2)
