Week in Review - 3 March 2018

Following the posting of a video that very quickly went viral, and not always for the right reason, President Hage Geingob reassured the nation that the costs for Namibia's Independence Day celebrations will be kept at reasonable levels but that the celebrations will with-out-a-doubt still take place, this year being hosted by Tsumeb. In other news the president criticized those who are seeking to block the National Equitable Economic Empowerment Framework insisting that it was going to happen and would be tabled by the end of this year. Public Enterprises Minister Leon Jooste also read the riot act to SOE's and their board members saying non-compliance to corporate governance can no longer be tolerated. Copper theft made the headlines again this week, but this time due to a prominent Windhoek-based businessman having been caught in possession of suspected stolen copper wire worth about N$ 31 660 and which belonged to Telecom Namibia. We also learnt that Namibia needs about N$ 390 billion to fight climate change, Unam could only accommodate less than 50% of qualifying med students due to a lack of accredited training hospitals, and the very sad fact that on average three children are diagnosed with cancer every week in Namibia. There was some good news though in that the One Economy Foundation this week launched the ONE Nation Fund to provide help to township entrepreneurs.
The biggest news from South Africa this week was without a doubt the fact that expropriation without compensation was passed by Parliament as well as Cyril Ramaphosa's late night Cabinet reshuffle that saw the return of some familiar and trusted names as well as the ouster of many so-called Gupta linked Ministers, one of whom, former Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown, subsequently handed in her resignation as ANC MP. South Africa's Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors also referred KPMG to a disciplinary hearing following an investigation of its work for Linkway Trading, part of the Gupta owned Oakbay Group. 
The United Nations recalled a 46-member peacekeeping police unit after some members allegedly paid local women living in protection camps in South Sudan for sex, more than 80 people, including two top generals, went on trial before a military court in Burkina Faso over the failed 2015 coup, the American ambassador to Swaziland spoke out in support of banned political parties in the kingdom, and at least 14 people were feared drowned after two overcrowded boats sank in the River Congo, while 15 people died in a train collision in northern Egypt. Sadly we also learnt that a new study suggests that no African country is expected to reach the UN target of ending childhood malnutrition by 2030.
The rebel held enclave of Eastern Ghouta in Syria was in the news quite a bit with allegations the Syrian government was deploying chemical gas in their aerial bombardment, and the fact that according to the United Nations the Russian plan for a five hour pause in fighting to allow aid deliveries to enter and civilians and medical cases to leave was not enough. Chinese leader Xi Jinping moved one step closer to what some analysts say is his dream of becoming the next Mao Zedong as the Communist Party proposed scrapping term limits for the country's president, and Papua New Guinea deployed troops and rescue workers after a powerful earthquake struck the country's interior. In other international news Four people were killed in an explosion and fire at a three-storey building in the central English city of Leicester, Japanese police said they had found parts of a dismembered body believed to be of a missing woman, with local media reporting that a 26 year old American had been taken into custody, and it was reported that North Korea sent arms to both Syria and Myanmar. Turkey also accused Czech authorities of “backing terrorism” and Vladimir Putin announced new missiles he said could evade US defences.
In good news Dolly Parton handed over the 100 millionth book as part of her Imagination Library initiative.
