As I understand it, there is going to be another court hearing on
Wednesday, August 4th, which is just a few days from now, and that
hearing will specifically be on the topic of the asset freeze.
It is possible that on Tuesday the asset freeze may be lifted.

I disagree, violently, with Eddy and the Board on a whole huge range
of issues. In fact I am mad as hell at all of them about a number
of things. But I do trust Eddy enough to believe that if he believed
that he could not keep the lights on and the systems running until
at least Wednesday, then he would tell us all that.

After Wednesday, if the asset freeze is not lifted, then it might be
appropriate to start to panic and/or to call for some extraordinary
measures. Today however, it isn't.

(Does the term "Chicken Little" have any meaning on the African continent,
or is that just an American thing? I honestly don't know.)
