The Legend of Urban Fridays ixPosted: February 5, 2016
He was accustomed to spending his Friday nights out on the town, as they say.
But on this day he found himself in an invidious situation when the labourers put forward a cogent case against him and his retinue directly to the High Commissioner, giving him cause for concern as the news was likely to unnerve his sponsors, who had supported his ventures on a presupposed condition that his operations would conform to their recommended safety standards.
So in fact, the offenses imputed to them – him at the helm and bearing the brunt of what he considered gripe – were largely of an ethical nature and not necessarily attributable to a specific breach of law or statute. Still, they brought much displeasure and were a most unwelcome inconvenience to his life of leisure and possibly damaging to his reputation, being a man of his stature.
