FEBRUARY is an important month for me personally and politically, because it is the month in which my dear late father was born (on the 8th), and it is also a month which is celebrated as Black History Month in the USA.

I THINK our decision-makers need a primer on what it means ‘to consult’ vs. what it means ‘to grant permission.’ As a matter of fact, maybe my husband needs that same revision. As we approach our 25th wedding anniversary this year, I have finally noticed that my own honey confuses the meaning of ‘suggest’, ‘recommend’ and ‘ask permission.’ Once, he ‘suggested’ that we have enough decorative pillows for the living room sofas. When he was annoyed after seeing that I had indeed bought more, I saw this confusion in action.

ALLOW me space to share my humble thoughts with us all. So much can happen in an hour, in a day, in a week or in the span of a year, a decade, a generation and a century in the life of a nation. Should anyone who knows and has heard not sympathize with all of us and more so with the mediate family and children of our dear brother, comrade and Minister of Education, Abraham Iyambo on his passing away, then such a person would not be human.

WITH all the boobs and blunders reporters make during the production of the newspaper, it is a big wonder that no editor in this country has published a book on the topic yet. Well I have good news for everyone. Our very own News Editor Mbatjiua Ngavirue will be the first to publish a text book titled “Mistakes made by Senior Reporters” very soon which he will use together with the white board in the newsroom to conduct classes where he will be the main lecturer.
