Welcome to the first issue of the journal for 2008. It is with sadness that we bid farewell to our Editor-in chief, Prof Nikodem who has left UWC and has
joined the ranks of University of Stellenbosch. We wish to thank her for her invaluable contribution made to this journal and hope that she will continue
to be a part of the journal in the form of a reviewer for the journal.
