Half war or all in?

I have just watched an American TV series called Madam Secretary, where a plotline within the story was about the Namibian rhino poaching crisis. In the show, ‘President Kibangu’ (or some sort of wild name) of Namibia asks the US Secretary of State for military equipment to help fight poachers in ‘E-toe-sha’. While I laughed at the names they used, what is really happening with rhinos, elephants and other high-value animals is not funny at all.

Former US President, George W. Bush, is set to jet into the Land of the Brave early next month, to officiate over the donation of money to various HIV/AIDS organisations, while also working with the First Lady, Monica Geingos’ One Economy Foundation, the Windhoek Observer can exclusively reveal.
