On the Diaspora front, This must itumbibe said from the depth of my heart and mind, we did not do a good job in 2013. The ideas and planning was superb, but the execution has been slow and the impact dismal. There are many reasons but instead of naming them for now, I take the blame. At least two of our greatest pledges are almost hatching, it should have happened earlier but we’ll such is life. In 2014, speed, impact and relevance will be our focus, So Help and guide us Lord. Once again to Diaspora, we are sorry, intention and results did not blend as we would have wanted, we have a clear plan and vision and am certain we will continue benefitting from your wisdom and ideas, even as we implement our plan.
