What happened? None of the Lanseria based photogs gave the Gupta jet a welcome home party? Convenient to land at unusual hours when there are fewer eyes and cameras.

Was on the apron when she landed and ended up in some photos published in the news, but didn't get around to taking any pics as I had work to do

Thanks Richard.
Sometimes lousy weather still presents an opportunity to take a nice pic.

Commandeered by the Congolese for Winnie's funeral is my best guess. Seen her here quite often, generally with a load of diplomats.
