Thanks guys, we had not started but I believe this is the right time to
start preps. Unfortunately unlike Nust, HIT might, in my view, not be
willing because we still havent cleared some of our debts. I will use this
space to have suggestions of when we can have our first meeting as Harare
SFD team.
