Hi Peter, Thank you for your letter. You're a wonderful researcher and I
appreciate your frankness. I won't invite you this time because we're too
pressed for time and because we can invite Samwel. But I look forward to
working more closely together and meeting in the future. Perhaps Samwel
can share your topics. Also, please have in mind that if you ever need to
go on our behalf to Nairobi, it's best for us if you stay with Kennedy
Owino or others there. I would much rather send them money then have it
spent on accomodation. I share your letters. Andrius
I every time appreciate your decisions, I hope even if I don't make it
this time, I would make it next time. I kindly request for the
1: Davis Book on world economic evolution, Mohammed Yunus book.
2: Look for who can support DIY Solar project business for me from
contacts you may meet there.
3: _ Discuss on logistics for MS Lab innovative community
projects in Africa.
_Business partnership with MS Lab members and contacts you get
there. ( Water melons, pumkins, peppers
pawpaw etc which we commonly grow here in our place ..
_Discuss impunity and corruption in Africa for this is at its
prime stage of practice by most African countries as a whole and
how CA and transparency can be practiced as the only way out for
community innovative projects....
_ Discuss about Malaria and Bednet distribution situation in our
region and the help needed like compensation of the youths who helped me
to do a survey. This is not a legend story, Peter Burgess is having a raw
data on this which he is also trying to work on it as my friend here.
Below is my letter to Burgess which has unfortunately gone unanswered by
him....it may look discouraging but am determined to work with him slowly
until we would be able to get and use his formular analysis on CA for our
community projects ...he is the only person now with new idea for
sustainability of community projects in Africa.
_Less unfortunate for computer access....for my dreams to come true, I
need free communications with my contacts. I hope God would be in
control for me to have one.

I'm of mind to built up the our datas.....do another survey study in
the month of March and April, July and August , lastly November and
December. These are check points of pick and low seasons of malaria
vector prevelence in the region....times when most people use bednets
when its cold and times when its hot for usage of nets. This time I
hope to consider:
1: type of bednet (material used)
2: cost of bed net
3:duration of the net (specific date net acquired)
4: status of the net (tone or not tone)
5: times the net has been washed/ treated.
6; clinical datas from the clinical health center.... since it is not
easy to get this from the concerned clinics, I'll propose to look at the
cards used at the time of clinical visits.
7: other methods used by each household to protect themselves against
8: any known artficial/ traditional way used to protect against mosquito
bites a part from bednets in the community from one household to another.
Any idea you can add on that would be important, for we need to bring
together all these informations to help us develop a new low cost
intergrated tool against malaria and the vector.
I don't want to commit myself this time that there would be any
compensation for those who would volunteer for this work but I would
only try to persuade them to accept to work volunteerily. To make
this easy for me, I suggest to use Ksh. 6750 sent to me by Andrius
through Denis Kimambo and may be if your financial status could
reform before March, to contribute the remaining Ksh.20000 towards
this project, it would be very great for the work to be done
throughout the year....at least now to have a spread data for a
I don't know what you may think of this idea.
Otherwise, wish you good time.

Thank you for explaining.
Yes - but it may be late for me to organize an invitation.
Also, I'm not sure
that I will have enough money.
We will see - but it's less than 50% likely that you can come, partly
because we have limited money, and partly because we may not have time to
get a ticket we can afford.
Your work is very important and we may have opportunity in the
I never had a passport before, and its when I've applied for it
yesterday. I 'm to wait for two weeks, thats to say am to collect
the passport on 19/2/2009. This would be still in time for I called
the UK embassy and confirmed this wouldn't be late for me to get the
visa for the March London trip.
