Veerle Poupeye replies to K. Khalfani Ra
I have read Mr Ra’s response to my column of 23 October 2022 and reiterate that my account of our discussion was accurate, even though Mr Ra is retroactively and disingenuously seeking to paint it in a different light. Mr Ra is free to disagree with my critical assessment of his work, and to share his views in this medium, but I stay by the points made, which were carefully considered and articulate.
