The Freedom of Limerick Committee reports that both Mr Steyn and Mr Kruger have encountered health setbacks, causing a change in their travel plans. Mr Steyn’s illness has worsened, and doctors advise that he should not attempt to travel before the end of September or early October. His current condition would not withstand the strain of a long journey. Despite making progress last week, doctors recommend that he should expose himself to a change in air and society to increase his chances of recovery.
