I AM writing this piece from Ongwediva. This time of the year, the northern regions of Namibia become very busy; there are Heroes’ Day commemorations at Omugulugwombashe, the Olufuko Festival in Outapi and the Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair (OATF) in Ongwediva. These three events respectively symbolise our political struggle, our cultural struggle and our economic struggle. I am tempted to call these our triple bottom line!

A year has passed since the death of Prime Minister Meles Zenawi, the man many consider the leading architect of post-Derg Ethiopia. With the death of Meles Zenawi, the future of a resurgent Ethiopia hung by a thread as uncertainty mounted in the vast country of over 80 million inhabitants, with over 60 diverse ethnicities and 2 major religions that have cohabitated uncomfortably for decades.

I THINK it’s important to recognize the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Fifty years ago, hundreds of thousands of people were all over the Mall in Washington, D.C. and it is an event that never will be forgotten.

What is the point of things making sense later in life? Where were those answers when you needed them the most, and why do things tend to make sense in retrospect? These are questions that have been harassing my mind, this week.
