My apologies; I thought that what was published on that website was Caroline’s column. I will look into this.

So in short you’re saying plagiarism is ok?

Thank you for your email to the public editor.  I’m at a loss to know what she should apologize for, in your opinion. But in any case as a columnist (this is an old column, if I’m not mistaken)she’s free to say whatever she wants to as long as it’s not libelous.

Good morning.

So what do you say about this? The least Mutoko can do is apologize and life goes on. However, knowing her, she will never do that and instead may end up calling us readers numbskulls as usual
