Margif and describing him as a former member of the Labour party and also a letter of the expulsion of Yohanna Margif from the Labour party dated 9th August 2022 is fake forged fabricated to cause crises in the state.
“There has never been a time when the EXCOs of Margie kopmur ward have withdrawn or expelled the membership of Amb. Yohanna Margif from the Labour Party.
