There is a time for everything

March 21, 2020 is the 30th year of Namibia’s independence and the inauguration of Namibia’s third president Hage Geingob for his second and final term in office. These dual celebrations are not about one individual, but about what Namibia as an entire nation of 2.6 million people, stands for.

The Angry Bank

Happy 27th Independence Day to all Namibians! This is a good time for us to reflect on the effectiveness or otherwise of our policy decisions over the past almost three decades. Hindsight always offers 20/20 vision, and this should enable us to make crucial corrections, as we chart our struggle for true emancipation.
