We’ve lost a great friend

Consumer Watchdog is in mourning. Last week we lost one of our good friends. We never publicised it but Baledzi Gaolathe MP, the former Minister of Finance and later Minister of Trade and Industry was an enormous source of support and advice to Consumer Watchdog. His office was always open to us, his advice flowed freely and he gave us great moral support. He was a reminder that politicians can still be decent human beings, can still demonstrate a commitment to the people and can be what my late father would have called a true gentleman.

We miss him and his family are in our thoughts. Our nation is poorer place because of his absence.
