Week in Review - 17 February 2018

As the saying goes, it happens slowly and then all at once and this week definitely seemed to be one of those weeks. It was the week Jacob Zuma finally buckled and resigned as president of South Africa, being swiftly replaced by his deputy Cyril Ramaphosa, it was also the week that Africa lost one of its bravest and long-fought politicians as Zimbabwe's Morgan Tsvangirai died of cancer in a hospital in South Africa. It was also the week the United States witnessed yet another deadly school shooting as 19 year old Nikolas Cruz killed seventeen people when he opened fire with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. 
Locally there was praise for Namibia's road infrastructure as the Roads Authority revealed that according to the World Economic Forum our country has the best roads in Africa, the Bank of Namibia left the Repo rate unchanged at 6.75%, local investment firm Eos Capital acquired the majority of the ordinary share capital of water firms Heat Exchange Products and Namibia Aqua Mechanica, the country's inflation rate was far lower in January 2018 compared to the same period last year, while Minister of Public Enterprises Leon Jooste announced that parastatal boards will from now on only be paid for 4 meetings per year. Minister of Health Bernard Haufiku also appeared intent on setting the cat amongst the pigeons as he stated that there is an urgent need for public dialogue on the legalisation of abortion.
Despite Zuma taking up most of the column inches this week there was still other news from South Africa including that a suspected poacher had been eaten by lions close to the Kruger National Park, another mine worker died in one of Sibanye-Stillwater's mines, South African 5000m athletic star Thabang Mosiako was hospitalized following an alleged racist attack on him and his friends in Potchefstroom, and in a blow for freedom of speech award winning local film Inxeba The Wound was given an X18 rating by the Film and Publication Board's Appeal Tribunal. South Africa's unemployment rate also declined slightly, while Cape Town's Day Zero was once again pushed back – this time to June 4th.
Ex-Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was awarded the Mo Ibrahim prize for African Leadership while in Ethiopia the Prime Minister resigned amid a political crisis and lingering unrest in the country. Elsewhere in Africa 5 civilians lost their lives and another 18 were injured when their passenger vehicle hit a landmine in Mali and in Libya a truck carrying over 300 migrants crashed resulting in the death of at least 23 people. Equatorial Guinea's public prosecutor is seeking the death penalty in the trial of 147 opposition activists, Zanzibar is once again trying to break from Tanzania while the president of the mainland country was quoted this week as encouraging polygamy as a way to reduce prostitution. Rwanda's media watchdog also ordered the closure of a Christian radio station after it broadcast a sermon calling women dangerous, evil, and against the plans of God.
Elsewhere in the world Russians were mourning following the crash of a Russian aircraft carrying 71 people and the death of everyone on board, international aid agencies continued to have the spotlight shone on them following revelations that Oxfam staff had paid for prostitutes, some of them under age, while on deployment in Haiti, and in France the question of instituting an age of consent was again thrust to the fore due to a court case involving a 29 year old man who had sex with an 11 year old girl.
