I THANK my predecessors, the first Prime Minister, Right Honourable Dr Hage G. Geingob, the second, Right Honourable Theo Ben Gurirab, and the third, Right Honourable Nahas Angula for having done a wonderful job over the last 23 years. I am glad that many of the ideas and projects that the first PM had left unfinished were not mothballed.

I SPENT the best part of last week in the capital of Botswana, Gaborone. Prior to that visit, I was last in Gaborone 16 years ago. Notwithstanding the sound macro-economic fundamentals at the time, I was not too impressed with the physical infrastructure in Gaborone.

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.
