Dad to princess Gabriel #66. Most of you will probably recognise our former minister of national security. Many would have formulated opinions based on his life as a public figure. I don't know Martin on a personal level but because our children were in the same class, I have had the opportunity to observe him with his daughter. I can tell you that he stood with the rest of us parents in the sweltering noon heat as our kids demonstrated their P.E skills at open day. There was never a motorcade or a security detail heralding his arrival, only a lone driver who remained out of sight until it was time to leave. Regardless of what you may have thought about his tour of duty as a minister he certainly gets points for being a good dad.
