    Business community? Habesha, Darfuris, Somalians, Ugandans mostly operating as coverts for jienge benydits and bandits who looted state resources as part of the laundry rackeetering. These scammers should go and do business in Jiengelands. Wetrust our own Equatorian businesses. Equatorians must boycott these "jienge stooges"
