According to Juno7, Rapper Izolan headed another group of protesters which did not see eye to eye with Prophet Mackenson’s group.  The latter expressed their differences of opinion with Izolan. According to them, it was not time for carnival but rather time a revolution.  However, they had one voice, requesting the President’s resignation.
