SwaziLII Launches the Freedom Toaster, 31 May 2012

On 30 June 2012, I travelled from OR Tambo International to Sikuphe International in Manzini, Swaziland. A short flight from Johannesburg (barely enough time for a cup of coffee!) but quite far removed from Jozi’s mad pace.

The occasion for the travel was the launch of the SwaziLII Freedom Toaster. I was particularly excited because my colleagues and I had been bothering funders literally for years to fund a Freedom Toaster!


AfricanLII in Freetown, Sierra Leone: workshop with SierraLII

Arriving at Lungi International Airport in Sierra Leone after departing Johannesburg, South Africa 17 hours previously, is almost unreasonably exhilarating. The tropical winter heat is refreshing after the long hours of airconditioned plane travel. Of course there is still the ride to the ferry embarkation point and then the cool sea breeze of the ferry trip to one of the wharfs in Freetown.
