The ranting of a fashion nut: Is that a fur coat?

A few sane people exist in the world that you do not need to tell this, but the rest of the loonies out there you definitely need to tell.

The penniless rover and the guiding hand

I make no secret of the fact that I am a penniless rover, but a rover nonetheless. I love to travel, but I mostly travel in my dreams or when an annoying person starts talking at me and I’m trying to find an escape, because of the holes in my pocket.

Namibia’s next top model

It takes a certain kind of man to be able to walk down a runway and own it, especially in a country riddled with stereotypes about what is a real man. Twenty-year-old Bobby Kanjoosa is one such man, and he will shout it from the top of the tallest building without any hesitation.
