The former strongman’s astrologer has now stopped making political predictions. However, he continues to serve the numerous clients calling on him for consultation from here and abroad.
He has also made it a point to continue to maintain cordial relations with his political pals, among whom are bigwigs from both sides of the great divide.
By the way, reports reaching us say that a group from a certain political party is coaxing the astrologer into resuming making political predictions.
These politicos, most of them already holding high office, are said to be pressing the royal astrologer to make a certain political prediction which suits them. They are even in touch with the family intimates of the astrologer in their bid to influence the latter. By the way, they have also held out such a wide range of benefits to the astrologer as the price for complying with their request which could mean a fortune for him. A dark and stocky one and a ‘doctor’ holding high off are said to be the most insistent ones in the pressure group.
However, the astrologer who has remained unresponsive to their request has told one of those pestering him that he was not prepared to sell the honour of his profession for a mess of pottage.
The former strongman whom he had once served continues to be in constant touch with him and would not forget to call him to say, ‘Howdy!” once in a way, they say.
By the way, many people are said to be inquiring from the astrologer as to who would emerge victorious on November 16 – D- Day. And his stock reply to them all is: “It’s a secret confined to me.”
