A Public Service Announcement
Yesterday, Thabo Mbeki announced the date of the next election. The nation will go to the polls on April 14. As reported last week, those of you living oversees now have 15 days to get to your nearest high commission or embassy to register. I urge as many of you as possible to do so. The ANC very nearly decided not to allow expats to vote and so, having been forced down on this issue, we now need to make it clear how important this is to us.

Given that there are anything up to a quarter of a million South Africans in Britain at the moment, I expect Trafalgar Square to be a busy place on April 14. Now if someone will just bring a skottle along and a rugby ball we could make a day of it..
