    We await what Githongo has to say with bated breath!
    I wouldn’t come back if I were Githongo though. I would send the report and watch from a safe distance. Maybe it’s just me but I wouldn’t like to put my life in the hands of people who want me silenced and are itching to take a shot at me!

    Whispering Inn & Prousette: Githongo should publish & release his full report from the UK. I fear if he returns he’ll step off a plane for good like Aquino in the Phillipines.

    Tee J: Am back, but some days, there’s not much to say, or time to put it all together.
