HARVEST OF A PMB LEGACY

May 9, 2018

One takeaway from the PMB presidency is the realisation in many of us
that we too can do the job. A good number of quality minds (well, arguably)
have emerged shopping for votes and even for parties on which to run
in 2019 Elections.

Some guys have done a count and published sketch profiles of 22 other
persons who are already on the road saying PMB is b*llsh*t. None
has given him credit for making it easy for them to beat their chests.
