DEDICATION

I dedicate this report to my fiancée, Patience, my son Jotham and my parents who both have provided me with inspiration and encouragement over this long journey. Special appreciation is given to Patience for the many weekends that she spent alone as most of the time I was at school or on the computer finishing coursework and working on this dissertation.

Many thanks to Mum and Dad who have brought me a long way and always asked how school was going, stating their pride in my efforts. Without their support, this course may not have been completed. Mum and Dad, may you draw inspiration from this report to do great.
