Week in Review - 06 April 2019

An interesting week in politics, some positive financial news from both Namibia and South Africa, the eventual sentencing in one of South Africa's worst cases of child abuse, and sadly once again people trying to highlight our differences and scapegoat foreigners rather than understanding that we're all in this together.

Week in Review 30 March 2019

This week was riddled with its own economic topsy-turvy, as finance Minister Calle Schlettwein tabled the Appropriation Bill. With everyone chiming in and sharing their discontent with the Civil Wage Bill and the amount allocated to the country's defense ministry drawing an unexpected response from the Rear Admiral himself. The country also lost a King this week. King Elifas died aged 86, and was the King of the Aandonga people. South Africa was frazzled by Bosasa details as well as the former and later President's dealing with their sons' penchant for the lavish lifestyle. The Brits couldn't meet their Brexit deadline and Boeing has left the world with even more un-answered questions. Catch-up with our leading headlines in this week's edition of the Week in Review.
