    I don’t want to see that stupid crazy evil Free Basics here in Zimbabwe.

      Why do you think its evil. So many dont have access to the net and cannot afford it. Free basics would at least connect them to a part of it… Half a loaf is usually better than nothing for these folks

        Ofcourse you would think that way, because you’re a mere myopic consumer and lack foresight.

        This debate is not for you. You’re better suited for debating costs of bread, beer, clothes and such
