Do you ever have one of those days where you work late and are too tired to cook by the time you reach home? You definitely won’t want to go home and start speaking with your pots.

With a colleague, I went to vote at Heja Lodge outside of Windhoek.   It was an adventure in frustration. There were logistical faults, lack of crowd control and no respite from the elements. There was poor information dissemination.  At one point, there was a near riot as frustrated people bum-rushed the doors and jumped the queue.  I went out to vote at 10 and arrived back home just before 4. After talking to colleagues and friends, my experience echoed theirs to varying degrees.

There has been a literal embarrassment of ‘riches’ on which to write a column this week. Corruption and fishy dealings on a grand scale. Violence among some of the most educated members of our society. Yet more saddening, but not surprising stories of Namibians being our own worst enemies.

The constitution of this country promises free basic education. The Cabinet and government officials over the years have demanded that no child shall be turned away from a public school because of money. And yet, schools continue to demand tuition fees disguised under different euphemisms. The extortion racket is the same in many schools.
