In tough times, we tend to feel uninspired and unmotivated; our desire to achieve goes down.  Today in Namibia, many people aren’t inspired – things are just too difficult. Hearing a budget speech that basically says things are not going to get better any time soon; being unable to find a job or pay university fees drains away positive feelings.  As things get worse, people feel darker about life’s potential.

The education ministry will spend N$10 billion of their N$13.7 billion budget on salaries alone.  The government's wage bill more than doubled over the past five years, from N$13 billion in the 2014/2015 financial year to about N$30 billion by 2018.  The high percentage of civil service salaries and benefits are drowning this country.

In exactly a week’s time, the United Kingdom may leave the European Union, its political home since 1973 (although an extension to the negotiating timeframe now looks more likely). As I write this, the world is still reeling from a white supremacist terrorist attack in New Zealand that left 49 people dead.
