Anni will become the new president under the new arrangement or dictator Gayoom will stay to haunt again. Feel happy either ways. That’s what fellow Maldivians want and that’s what god is offering. A jaw dropped old man in seventies or a jaw dropped man by drink and drug. Good luck to the critics and incapable thinkers who have never been able to deal with their own problems. Good luck to the religious fellows who will eat what they ate for the last 30 years or Islam alongside Christianity (the fusion religion for the Maldives). An old leader who never knew where he was heading or a new leader who only knows where his mates are heading. This is the anne dhivehiraage full of thinkers who are o’ level school leavers. May peace be upon them?
With love
