Hi Janissa
Our supplier sold out his deep cycle batteries and we are waiting for fresh
supply. I will be getting all your stuff in a couple of weeks, and then
going to Ketane for the installation. Are you around? Who is responsible
there and what are their contact details. With Easter, we will probably do
the installation after Easter. Sorry for the delay. Ivan

Hi Ivan,

That sounds fine. I won't be there. The best contact in Ketane is Matlabe
Teba, the principal. He's in the States right now but will be back in
Ketane in a week or so. If he's not available, talk to Delia Helie. She's
a Peace Corps Volunteer who lives next to the school.


BREAKING NEWS ! Lesotho school principal Matlabe Teba will not be returning to Africa.

BREAKING NEWS! Lesotho school principal Matlabe Teba has been captured and is being held by more than 100 1st-3rd grade students and their teachers at Columbian elementary school in Pueblo, Colorado. The captors are refusing to release him to Dr. Jack Wilson of FIPE, declaring that they are unwilling to relinquish such a treasure in their midst. One of the teacher/hosts, Mrs. Kathy Plath, took it upon herself to reschedule an appointment Wilson had made for Matlabe for a pro-bono dental examination and prophylactic cleaning so his time at the school would not be interrupted. Mrs. Plath, who once lived in Lesotho, intends to sequester the African teacher/administrator in her home and accompany him tomorrow to Pueblo's new International Magnet School. FIPE officials in the area are negotiating to secure Mr. Teba's release at least temporarily so he can keep his appointment to address the Pueblo Kiwanis Club on Wednesday. Further developments will be announced as they occur.
