    Franchement c’est lamentable. On ne peut pas construire un pays dans l’incivisme et le desordre. C’est un droit de manifester et faire des revendications mais detruire des biens publics est un actte crminel et les coupables doivent en assumer. On ne peut pas continuer de cette maniere. Par ailleurs, il faut que les gens prennent conscience que les biens publics n’appartiennent pas a Roch ni au MPP encore moins au Maire, c’est pour tous les burkinabe,
    Soyons vraiment des hommes integres, respectons nos institutions, respectons nous, protegeons notre pays, son image dans le monde. C’est de cette maniere seuleument que nous ferons avancer le pays. Ceux qui veulent arriver au pouvoir devront attendre les elections c’est la seule voie legale et legitime.
