Visited by Rhadi and JN Singh who generously left behind a 1988/9 Race Relations Survey and 1990 CNA diary. Today is also JN's 68th birthday. Although his once handsome face carries clear signs of old age, he still looks impressive and well spoken. Rhadi now carries a bit of spare flesh around her bones, and thus looks broader and shorter than expected. But she still looked beautiful and innocent. After their departure Warrant Officer Swart remarks that of all the people who had visited this place during the last 12 months he liked this couple the best. Where others regarded him as Government official, these two accepted him as one of them.
