Dear Chair,

Thanks for your mail, from your information it means the audit report will
be available tomorrow (the 24th) once the board concludes its meeting.
While it would have been good to have this much more earlier than now, i
guess a day of patience is still in order considering where we are coming

That said, can you confirm if all the meeting minutes have now been
published as that was one of the task that the board committed to
addressing. On the last point about sighting Paris instance, I don't think
we need Paris to be bombed before we know there is security concerns as
places closer to us has been experiencing terrorist attack by the day and
we have been doing our thing without this much security awareness PR[1]. I
value my life but we should not scare ourselves un-necessarily, and
certainly the scare should not be as a result of incidents that happened in
foreign territories.

1. Anyone who was in Djibouti would recall what happened.
