Hi All
The State Land Audit is not a secret at all. Just like the Census data, some information might be classified and not freely available.

    Hi Aslam ,

    Thank you for your mail -- I hope you have alternative employment lined 
    up   ( OK I am kinda being facetious -- I am worried for what happens if 
    the MSM get a hold of this info -- apparently "whislte-blowers" are not 
    treated too kindly )

    "State Land Audit" 

    Are you talking "State"  as in the whole state of RSA
    State as in state owned land ? 

    In a round about way you re-inforce my earlier rmail


    An RFI  ( Request for Information )

    Come on

    You have to be joking

    It is Febrauary -- not April

    Perhaps Nkandlaville is included in the audit ?  ( What is it called 
    again -- Natioanl Security Key Point ? )

    No offence to you boss -- what is going on in that nightmare that we call
