Daily Diary (DD) - Day 58 of 2024


In search of a new laptop...given that my screen is now effectively unusable. I am using another screen to temporarily do work that needs immediate attention.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 56 of 2024


My screen is playing up and typing here is like fending in the dark. I got up at 0600hrs today and I barely had an hour of sleep after working through the night.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 55 of 2024


The 'rest' part of my day is getting efficient finally. Despite only 3 hours of very light sleep in the previous 24 hours, I made do with 8 hours of sleep in the 24 hours just passed. I fell asleep at midnight and got up at 0800hrs. Now, I just need to bring that down to 0600hrs and if I can do that for 3 days in a row it will become a routine. Our public and our territory can then expect much more from me, whom I have devoted almost the past 2 decades to.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 54 of 2024


Have performed markedly better today. I didn't go to sleep till after 0400hrs because of engagement with co-citizens in different time zones. I also managed to get up at 0700hrs after not really being able to sleep. So, today's 'rest performance' has dwindled to half of the optimum level needed to give 100% every day. 

It is likely that the responsibility of work is now preventing me from slumbering furthermore. The change in weather is also a factor, though it should be noted that there is still frost in the mornings.


We have completed our 7th Friday in the 'Court of the Public':

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 53 of 2024


Improved from yesterday by sleeping at 0200hrs. I had to follow Luton's visit to Liverpool in the English Premier League and until half-time it looked a dream with the score at Liverpool 0 : Luton 1. The second half did convert to a nightmare as Liverpool have built a tradition of finishing strong viz. Liverpool 4 : Luton 1. Simultaneously, I was also able to participate in an online programme on #InternationalMotherTongueDay :

Again, I struggled to get up. Eventually rising at 1100hrs accumulating a total of 9 hours rest, 2 more than yesterday and 3 more than the optimum.

I have much soul searching to do.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 52 of 2024


I have cut down sleep but it is not in sync with the pattern I'm aspiring for. I didn't get to sleep till 0400hrs as there was much pending work to attend to that couldn't wait any longer. I did get up at 0800hrs but felt that was not enough sleep for my 51 year old body. after a while I returned to sleep but got up at 1100hrs. Therefore, 7 hours in total is better than than the 8 plus that I've been 'enjoying' for most of this year so far.


I'm devoting a lot of time to trying to explain to my co-citizens the need for them to financially play a part in change, that would be for the betterment of our people, It's the only weak link of our peace strategy for a thousand years:

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 51 of 2024


The icy temperature last night ensured that I fell asleep just before midnight. I woke at 0800hrs. Thus, I have regained a tolerable level of rest, although the optimum is of course 6 hours. I should concentrate on narrowing that gap now.


The following has long been overdue and we did experiment somewhat a few times before but I didn't think our people were quite ready. We can wait no longer.

This will be uploaded here on a daily basis with all relevant changes detailed in due course. We will also gradually backtrack as much as possible to 2009 when we began focussing totally on our own territory, so that the people of this territory clearly understand what one has to go through to consistently focus on public interest at the cost of everything else.

Here's our Facebook post with regards to this new daily initiative:

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 50 of 2024


Today developed similar to the day before yesterday. Got to sleep at around 0130hrs and despite getting up at 0900hrs fell back asleep again till about 1230hrs. The rain has been pounding down since yesterday as have strong winds been blowing. Abnormal weather in both directions (hot & cold) does affect life here and slows down movement of people even more so than normal.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 49 of 2024


I have reversed the downfall of yesterday to a considerable extent. It took me just beyond 0100hrs to fall asleep and I did manage to get up at 0900hrs this morning. The rain has returned and that cannot be a bad thing for our nascent crops.

I'm keen to develop momentum from hereon....


After a few weeks of 'soft & subtle awareness outreach' to my co-villagers on the importance of waste management and its bearing on our future success as a country, we convened our inaugural meeting this morning in our bazaar, with all major stakeholders on board:
