    The problem basically is the culture of impunity that has prevailed since independence.
    What is needed is a new constitution with term limits to elected office and equal representation of both sexes in the Parliament. Fortunately the country is blessed with an abundance of bright young people in spite of the recent exodus.
    It’s time to retire the old lot or to send them to pasture.
