    CT should not publish articles on personal lives of Politicians (or for that matter anyone’s). That is up to them, their god/religious leaders and their families to deal with. Hope CT will not publish lunatic journalists or shallow people who utter about personal love affairs, extra marital affaires, gay-lesbian affairs of our politicians…because if you start doing that we can even go back as early as SWRD Banda’s time…
