Gates disclosed in his Twitter handle earlier on Wednesday when he said the payments should continue particularly during the global coronavirus pandemic.

    Why is Bill Gates still talking? Is he a medical doctor? Is he a president? Why won’t he and his wife and their likes be brought to justice to face crimes against humanity in their roles in this whole pandemic?
