I think we can move to the voting stage and your suggestions sound good Steven.

Can you respond within the next 48 hours if you wish to schedule a discussion, otherwise I will move on to the voting stage.

My suggestion is that we include a second option in the vote - “No to Dar es Salaam”. I am not in any way say suggesting that there is anything wrong with the Dar proposal or that I would vote against it but I am suggesting that in a secret ballot anyone who is opposed to the Dar proposal should have a way of registering that vote. In the event that the no vote exceeded the yes vote we would then recommend to the board that we recommence the selection process.
