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.

Week in Review - 01 June 2019

From the death of Dr. Nickey Iyambo to, Theresa May's resignation and Huawei's troubles, this week's news has been filled with global affairs of epic proportion.

To fill in the gap of what you might have missed, listen to our Week in Review and surmise what's been newsworthy to you. Could possibly be our government's suggestion of the deduction of 2% from all our incomes! Enjoy!

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.
