Week in Review 16 November 2019

Namibian's got whip-lashed by the #Fishrot news this week, that saw both the Fisheries Minister and the Justice Minister tender their resignations. Seemingly standing in tandem with fellow minister's, Tjekero Tweya found himself caught between a rock and a hard place when he referred to local journos as 'flies'. Well, NMT & RWB both opined on the matter. THEN, for some good news, the Collins Dictionary has named "climate strike"as its word of 2019. Word or phrase? You decide for yourself when you tune into this week's review. Mazel tov to next week guys!

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.
