Namibia's high level of Gender Based Violence was once again highlighted this week as we learnt that a 25 year old woman had been shot and killed, allegedly by her boyfriend, who is a soldier based at the Osona military base, the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology also revealed that they had produced a 30 minute short-film on the topic of GBV, meanwhile a farmer from the Aranos area was found guilty of having shot and killed his wife in 2010. There was good news for the country as it was reported that Walvis Bay Salt Refiners have secured a buyer in the United States of America. The Bankers Association of Namibia also announced that they were joining hands with 'Writers of Hope' and would be collecting stationery and school supplies for the less fortunate in all participating bank branches up until the culmination of their drive which will see street collections taking place in Windhoek on February 22nd.
 
South Africans, and indeed people all across the planet, were saddened on Tuesday by the news that legendary musician Hugh Masakela had died following a long battle against prostate cancer, the country also however rejoiced in the news that the world seemed to be taking a more positive view of them as good news filtered back from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and the Rand continued to show unprecedented strength against the US dollar. Court cases dominated the news this week as both Minister of Social Development Bathabile Dlamini and Gauteng Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu were put under the spotlight for their roles in the Sassa and Life Esidimini scandals respectively, meanwhile there were renewed protests at OverVaal Hoerskool and the fight against Gupta-linked corruption intensified as the Hawks conducted search and seizure operations relating to the Vrede Dairy matter. 
 
Elsewhere in Africa former international footballer George Weah was sworn in as the new president of Liberia amid high expectations of change, Gem Diamonds in Lesotho announced that they had discovered yet another large high quality diamond, and Zimbabwe's new president continued to say all the right things and impress many people while attending the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. There was bad news too though as Egypt continued its clampdown on the LGBT community, arresting another 10 people and bringing to 85 the total number reported to have been arrested since September last year, tensions continued to grow between Egypt and Ethiopia over the latter's Grand Renaissance Dam project on the upper Nile river, Chad saw renewed anti-austerity unrest, and the UN expressed concern over the deaths of at least 7 people in Ethiopia.
 
Internationally the Philippines' Mount Mayon volcano continued to threaten a massive eruption while there were several earthquakes recorded across the so-called 'Ring of Fire' as well as off the coast of the United States. French prison guards extended their strike over calls for more resources, especially in light of the increased number of radical Islamists under their watch, a German nurse already serving two life sentences for murder was indicted in nearly 100 more killings, Donald Trump got serious with his 'America First' promise ahead of his trip to Davos by imposing new tariffs on imported washing machines and solar panels, Britain's competition regulator ruled that a Fox takeover of Sky was “not in the public's best interest”, and the charity 'Save the Children' temporarily suspended operations in Afghanistan following an ISIS claimed attack on their Jalalabad office.
