1 Seriously! The grandmothers' war has taken a turn for the worse. Neighbours reported an ugly scene last week when the maternal granny turned up at the paternal granny's residence. They say loud noises and choice expletives were followed by the flying cake - and the victim is the grandchild who doesn't understand what all the fuss is about.
It's coming soon!

From all reports it has not been easy to coordinate these visits and oftentimes the cases are not ready when the seemingly fearful and reluctant witnesses get here.
