_Kaperoni quick chat 1/25/2012 12 noon CST
Kaperoni: Just a quick chat.
Kaperoni: I have been out with the flu the past few days, but I have been still reading articles and documents. I wanted to give you an update based on articles I have read. I am not providing links, but they are all in the forums if you question it.
Kaperoni: Parliament stated this past week that they would not take up economic laws until after the Budget is passed.
Kaperoni: We know from previous articles that one of the economic laws is an “accounting law” that needs to pass before Shabibi can RV the currency.
Kaperoni: There was an article about 3 –4 weeks ago that said they expect to pass the budget by mid February.
Kaperoni: So we can make a fairly educated assumption that the RV will not occur till after this timeframe.
Kaperoni: My view is watch for the budget, then watch for parliament to take up the economic laws. We then may be very close. Keep in mind, the political issues remain an issue and may delay or impact this.
Kaperoni: I’ll be back soon when I feel better.
Kaperoni: Take care, Kap
