Dr. Majed Abu Ali is a dentist from Douma, in the Eastern Ghouta suburbs of Damascus, which has been under siege for the last two years. Since 2012, he has served as spokesman and public relations director for the United Medical Office of Eastern Ghouta, which coordinates the medical centers across the area. When he practiced dentistry and provided health care in Eastern Ghouta during the conflict, he witnessed and treated the horrific effects of siege, daily bombings, and targeted attacks on medical facilities and workers.

Yes #Nxasana was wrong taking the pribe however the Court cannot ignore the fact that the President of the Republic initiated the bribe.
