                                 Board Changes 
The Company announces that the Company's non-executive Chairman and director of 
the board, David Lenigas, has decided to step down from both positions with 
immediate effect in order to facilitate the process whereby the Company embarks

Africa. How the future pans out will almost certainly mean that the Board may 
change in the future and as my objective is purely to restore and grow
