July 5: Tanzanian inmate's first post (in Swahili) - about the danger of drug trafficking to HK - on East Africa's popular Jamii Forums attracted 80 replies. Some of the replies said that she, and I, were not "genuine" (!). So this reply from her was posted on June 13, also attracting comments. All in the good cause of stopping people from East Africa coming to HK with drugs!


June 17:  Letter from a Tanzanian woman in a HK prison for drug trafficking - the only Tanzanian arrested so far this year at HK airport (one in six months, compared with one a week in 2013, before this website's campaign began!)

May 24: About a week ago I posted a Tanzanian HK inmate's letter on Jamii Forums in East Africa. Item has so far attracted more than 80 comments. Most of them are in Swahili but a few are in English. Swahili comments can be translated by Google Translate. Some comments say that the letter - and I - are not genuine! Yesterday I posted a reply to try to prove genuineness!  Five pages of comments here


May 19: Drug kingpins wanted to kill me - Tanzania's Godfrey Nzowa
- which is why when I met him on January 10, 2015 I was admitted to his office by armed guards! We had a 90 minute chat, after which I found myself thinking "this is the sort of person who should be president!" A number of times during our meeting he referred to his Christian faith and his love for the Bible ...and his belief that God protected him from being killed
