              My grandmomma taught me a basic wisdom about life that has served me well.  “Never promise a starving man food.  Just serve the meal and let his surprise at being fed be his balm.”  This point rose in my mind immediately after reading promises made by President Hage Geingob, via Acting Minister Kawana that all who lost their work due to the Fishrot corruption will get their jobs back.

On 27 November 2019, as the ultimate sovereigns, Namibians went to the polls, exercised their undeniable democratic right, and re-elected in their President Hage G. Geingob to lead the country for the next five years. Namibians voted for political parties of their choice, and returned the SWAPO Party as the Governing party.
