We witnessed first-hand how, on Saturday night, Paulus “The Rock” Ambunda boxed his way to the pinnacle of his sport, by winning a unanimous decision over the now former WBO bantamweight world title, Thailand’s Pungluang Sor Singyu.
The diminutive Thai was tough like a steak that has been cooked for too long, but Ambunda ate it.

The death of two men at a village near Rundu on Sunday has brought to the fore the ugly confirmation that tribalism is indeed rife in Namibia and that ignoring this fact could explode right in the face of this nation. An Oshiwambo-speaking security guard allegedly shot dead a Kavango man during a confrontation - resulting in more than 30 local residents, who are all alleged to be from the same tribe as the slain man, beating the security guard to death.

Namibia’s black economic empowerment (BEE) programme remains largely non-transparent, making it difficult to determine whether the initiative is the right channel to increase the pace of transforming black peoples’ lives.

Addressing parliament last week, President Hifikepunye Pohamba spared a moment to praise the parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC), which he said is reinforcing accountability in the country. And a seemingly flattered chairperson of the committee, Usutuaije Maamberua, in return thanked Pohamba for the ‘recognition’ and told a local weekly that the committee needs more funding to execute its duties. Read more about PAC is a waste of time, Mr President!

There must be something in our drinking water that is driving us nutty, relieving us of our sensibilities and ability to think straight - our level-headedness. This is the only explanation we can think of for what has now become the “mini war” - sparked by Nampol Inspector-General Sebastian Ndeitunga warning women to refrain from wearing miniskirts that are ‘too short and revealing’ in public, because it’s not acceptable in the African culture.

If we are to get to the bottom of the debate swirling around the so-called Struggle Kids - and somehow make sense of it in a positive way - we must begin to untangle some critical issues. It is an emotional debate on different levels.
Some of these levels have been articulated in the media and some have not. One of the areas that remain unchartered, amid a plethora of reporting on what they should and should not be entitled to, is the reality of what the majority of people, including our youth, endured in this country during the liberation struggle.
