“I sometimes came from election campaigns to the centre near the Airport. The doctors would try to smuggle me out from the back.”

He explained that his young nephews and cousins, who were medical doctors in Europe and the US, joined forces with the Lakeshore people and decided they wanted him in their direct care after the election.
