Life is Like a Kudu Horn author interview

From Jacana Media: Waking up to roaring lions near her doorless dung hut; encountering elephants while walking with other women to fetch water from a distant spring; realising that older Himba people saw themselves as part of nature, not as separated from it nor at its apex ... These were just some of the experiences that would change the way Margaret Jacobsohn thought about wildlife conservation.
Listen to this interview to find out more about the book and the author as well as why you should definitely think about reading it.

Week in Review - 14th September 2019

Xenophobia continues to dominate the news this week, with countries like Nigeria and Zimbabwe repatriating their nationals from SA. Staying with Zim, former president Robert Mugabe's family and the government have finally agreed as to where and when the late leader will be buried. Brexit chaos continued, with the UK's PM suspending their parliament till the 14th of October. And then, there's the guy who just made our week by stealing confectionery like a mad person. What to make of this news, is completely up to you! Suppose that global economic woes have been detrimental to everyone! Happy listening.

Week in Review 17 August 2019

Ebola has officially spread to another region in the DRC, but that's not the biggest news. My voice is hoarse, given the season, and so i've recruited Karlien (yip, the lady with the gorgeous voice *punts show* #TheHardDrive 12 to 3pm), to deliver your news. It seems that southern African presidents have been busy bees this week. Starting with president Hage Geingob, who had to relinquish his SADC Chairmanship to Tanzania's Magufuli, and then South Africa's Cyril Ramaphosa delivering great news to the low-income earners by passing the debt-relief bill. SA sneezed, let's catch a cold! On a sad note, Nam is battling hunger pangs, but there is a silver lining to all the madness, find out about the positive highlights in this weekend's edition of the Week in Review. Happy listening!

Week in review 10 August 2019

This week has been quite trans-formative, in that the world now knows for sure that we consume too much meat. The climate change scientists have spoken; 107 of them! What it will mean for "braai-loving" Namibian's and South African's, I don't know. The Ebola virus is still raging, while Malaria killed 1,800 people in Burundi.

Troubling GDP figures but an increase in exports and a big investment by five African banks in Debmarine Namibia's new vessel as well a potential serial killer in South Africa, a massive measles outbreak in the DRC, and increased tensions between Iran and the US. All that and lots lots more.

Week in Review - 08 June 2019

This week was filled with delicate and awkward news. From Tanzania meddling with women's hair extension tariffs (does the Tanzanian government know that a woman's hair is a delicate issue?) to Air Namibia's financial woes taking an extreme toll on the airline and a financial one from the government. Then, it seems that most countries are taking their participation in LGBT Pride Month quite earnestly, with Botswana decriminalising homosexuality; and in Trevor Noah's words, Lions were also celebrating Pride Month and promoting the new laws by prowling around a copper mine in Limpopo. There's too much news to mention but feel free to tune in for our summary of this week's news.
