I recently received a very kind offer from an American friend and fellow journalist. He is most concerned about my safety in South Africa. I would like to share it with you, however, I will not include his name out of consideration for his privacy. He writes:
This email is from your fellow XXXX columnist, XXXX, and my message to you is simple: Get out of Africa (the whole continent) immediately using any means possible. Get to Boston (somehow – some way), where I’ll pick you up and drive you to my home in XXXX. There you can recover (with your own bedroom and bathroom) and then decide on what options might be available to you. I don’t think you can legally get a passport, so discover how you can use other means to obtain one.
