Ms. Deborah Maate narrates that by the time of the struggle; she owned a drug shop where the duo could acquire health services from but due to financial constraints, she is now a farmer.

She says she remembers how her drug shop which was then located at Mr. Misaki Bindu’s building in the same area had helped the current most respected political leaders in the world but it was still a question in her mind on how to meet the two and they share the struggle experience since they now have the powers.

According to her, because of the struggle they went through with the two presidents, her family was supposed to have been identified and benefit from government programs which are aiming at eradicating poverty.
