THE GOD BOTHERERS

'I am not a Christian, I just like the drinking.'

Somewhere in the developing world, while the cicadas are chirping, diesel is filched and bride prices are haggled over, a new Imam is stirring up trouble.

Laura Hunter Bolt is off to Tambia, or is it Tambekistan, to Do Some Good. Fresh from the Non Governmental Organisation training camp in Bracknell – she's read The Idiots Guide to Islam (The Koran got a bit tricky after page four) and is sporting a dashing Gucci hijab.
