Reply Samaita January 30, 2017 at 1:26 pm Great pictures, but the caption on the first one is incorrect and borders on exaggeration. I have counted seven officers, yet the caption claims there are dozens. By implication, we should be seeing at least two dozen officers, thus twenty four. Lets uphold intergrity even in small matters. Reply Samaita January 30, 2017 at 1:31 pm Thank you for the swift correction, but good manners and professional ettiquate demands an acknkowledgement.
