Subsequently, we have been transformed into outcasts in our own particular area … a large portion of us were government representatives yet we couldn't figure out how to fabricate our own homes because of restricted pay," he noted. Rev Raymond called upon the legislature to assemble houses which will be moderate to them to empower every occupant to another structure.
