Bon Voyage Colonel Yassie
















I took this photo last night, but today his smile is wider since the AU has paid him and his colleagues today after they had to wait 92 days. Yes, they had to be separated from their families for 92 more days since the AU simply did not pay them. Nobody knows the reason and nobody is telling either. The problem is however not yet resolved since the rest of the AMIS personnel, except for the top structure, have not yet seen a cent since October 2006. In South Africa and Kenya there are also many who completed their missions dutifully, but are still waiting for their money. We really need the EU to do something about this situation.

On a lighter note I would like to bid a semi-permanent farewell to Colonel Yassie and wish him all the best for what the future holds for him, his wife Hala and their son and daughter. Thank you for being a part of our house and making those tough days so much easier to handle with your lightheartedness and jokes. We will miss you, sir.

Ezhab Fe Salaam.

Hi Werner,

Just wanted to let you know I'm feeling for you and the rest of your team regarding the whole financial debacle. Thanks for your honesty.

Heck we're practically neighbors right now. ;)

All the best,
Aaron
