There is no doubt that a project of this nature demands enormous resources, however our professional and organisational experience has been fully deployed to ensure effective coordination of the Sarewa Africa reality TV project. We are daily encouraged by the inflow of enquiries, show of solidarity and goodwill from interested would be participants and indeed the general public," she said.
