text: Since 15 August, nothing else has happened. Kevichusa tendered his resignation from service as a Magistrate. Pawsey took no notice and Kevichusa is once again attending court. The Khonoma group have had a number of meetings but have so far done nothing to set up a rival government. Pawsey thinks that having declared their independence they are now at a loss to know what next to do.
