I am a 57 years old senator from KENYA. I was accursed over issues relating to looting of public fund while in Government here in my country and all my properties, investment & personal bank accounts traced has been seized. However,l am under house arrest with my wife & children right now and they prevented our friends,relatives, including my lawyer from coming to see us until they finish investigation. As things are presently, l may not regain my freedom in next 3 years from what i am seeing now. This is where i need help, secretly, l have money;$48.5 Million US DOLLARS which i deposited under a security firm in Europe since 2006 and i had an agreement with this firm during the time of deposit that my deposit will be due to renew duration contract on July 2008 or it will start accumulating tax of $3,000 every 24 hours passed. Honestly, i cannot afford to loss that kind of money everyday and for how long? in any case i have decided to seek for a partner abroad with whom i can trust to give the deposit code & batch number to retrieve this money for me and use it to buy shares for me. i am ready to offer 10% of the total fund to any interested partner for his/her assistance. Can you help? Mr. Mark David
