Dear Editor,

It seems logical to conclude, on the basis of information which is now in the public domain, as well as the deeper insights being circulated in more prescribed social and political circles, that the Minister of Home Affairs may be definitely unwell.

Perhaps he is possessed by maladies of megalomania and distorted and deformed notions of 'democratic' propensities which can be definitely inimical to the longevity of the public careers of those who would aspire to the retention of leadership at the national, and more specifically, political levels.

In the prevailing circumstances, it may be well to respectfully suggest that, all things being equal, a tactical withdrawal from public life at this stage of play by the aforementioned 'honourable' personage may be infinitely preferred by our beleaguered nation, than a slew of continuously compromising and embarrassing revelations.

Presently a 'diplomatic indisposition' is still a tool in the armoury of public life. Recourse to it certainly would be better than public ignominy.

Yours faithfully,

CRB Edwards
