    Im just confused why are they looking fir him. What he did is not a crime.
    It means there’s jobs but they want to give it to their people.
    As a human they must not arrest him they must just hire him instead cz the government system is weak.

    As youth we will stand with him I stand with him personally.

    He did well by hacking the system to employee himself. On that, its a thumb up to him. But he showed foolishness by not working for that position
