    I am amazed and shocked to see the composition of the executive committee of this organization.

    There is an executive president!
    That raises serious concerns.

    The committee consist of just Presidents. Everybody wants to be chiefs, but nobody wants to be indians.

    Hajera Karjee – she is serving on so many executive committees within the SASCOC family. Is this not a mission to stay in power? Is she saying that she is the only person that can lead, or is it because of her political role she played in the struggle.
