THEY'RE HUMANS | 7 Politicians That Have Been Caught Sleeping In Public; No 4 Is From SA. (PHOTOS)

Sleep is an essential component of human life. This is the time when the body rests after a period of hard work in order to rebuild its vigor, as it is generally considered to be planned by the Maker.

The majority of the time, this rest is scheduled for the evening; but, due to certain lifestyle choices and work schedules, sleep hours are shifted.

People who are stressed are more likely to want to sleep, and politicians and high-ranking officials have been the biggest offenders.
