You don’t need evidence to prove to the people that you have done the right thing. These dramas are unnecessary. The people will see and know when you have done the right thing. No evidence is needed.”

Doing it in the presence of family members does not guarantee transparency cos the family members are not trained to interpret whatever features they see. Since the govt is involved, they’ll likely say things that will calm the youths.”
