Lock Down Again
Around the 28th of November we were on lock down in the hospital compound, now we are again due to the election results being announced last night.

People are unhappy with the announcement of the 2 leading candidates because it definitely looks like there is fraud. There are going to be problems as long as the current president's candidate gets through. It seems like people don't really care who goes on to win, as long as its not Preval's candidate.
