Dr Simba Makoni, who chatted with some of you on this blog on Tuesday in the late afternoon has now decided he will set aside 30 minutes on a day to be announced early next week to hear your thoughts and suggestions and talk about the interim constitution, the proposed principles and policies and any other matters that may be on your mind. From then on, he will be present here once a week on the same day and at the same time to interact with you.
You will notice that the Live Community Chatroll window is not on this blog at the moment. We experienced some problems with it and even suspected it had been hacked into, but it appears that the issue was compatibility with the browser we were using: Google Chrome. We could not access the back office of the blog nor could we participate in the conversations that were taking place. We have, therefore, temporarily uninstalled it and are working to put it back on within a couple of hours using a different, more stable browser. Chrome still remains our favourite here and we will be using it for all surfing. But for the chatroll, we will use a different product until our email to Google gets a response as to what we can do to resolve this.
Meantime, those who were on the site when we made the announcement may have been concerned. We assure you that our community remains secure and you can use it freely. Please keep the ideas coming.
To get back to the Simba Makoni announcement, the process will be as follows: we will put up the Constitutional Highlights here first and allow you to read through them and make notes of your suggestions and questions. The day after the Highlights are posted, Dr Makoni will then be here for the 30 minutes announced above at a precise time that we will also be announced on this blog. Please feel free to make your suggestion and to ask him direct questions about any matters that concern you. After that, as we have already said, he will be available here every week for a 30 minute audience with you.
We are about to embark on an exciting journey and we hope you will walk with us.
Regards to you all,
P.S. Update: The Chatroll Community has now been reinstalled back on this Blog. Talk to others at the bottom of this page.
In America, Sarah Palin, John McCain's vice-presidential candidate is now being destroyed by her own party, The Republicans. Most people who followed the campiagn thought her very racist. She was the one who went against McCain's wishes and at rally after rally, tried to paint Obama as a terrorist, accusing him of pallying around with Arab and domestic terrorists....
Now, the Republican party has released information that Palin is basically an airhead who does not know that Africa is a continent. She apparently thinks it is a country. She also did not know what countries comprise North America and did not know basic civil and government structures.........comeuppance?
