Interesting - I really wonder what they do have to say during this lecture since the only project that they had started in the medina many years ago is stopped - Hammam Seffarine. Will they explain why they actually made this hammam become unusable for all the inhabitants of the Seffarine district ? Would be great to hear their view on that !
