So Namibia’s government budget is on the rims [she imagines smoking hot donuts, the smell of rubber on tar, and screeching wheels amidst a screaming audience]. However, this time it is not a ‘post-race celebration’, rather an overwhelming amount of smoke-in-air, note the punt. In order to ‘keep the wheels on’, Namibia’s poorest communities are feeling the pinch. We have a population of roughly (and only) 2,4 million citizens, is what’s poking me from the back. About half of that is our youth. So imagine the perception towards our leadership, when we’re barely making ends meet, albeit being rich in potential and corporate enthusiasm

We have 80billion neurons (better known as brain cells), and each of them communicates with billions of other neurons. How’s that for working with ‘big data’ that we can learn from? Learning from the actual organism that build organisations makes sense. However, the science of communications is no easy subject matter. The challenge increases when having to communicate science in a way that effectively leads communities into awareness, and change.

Responding to corporates’ social investments (be it free products, -food, houses, you name it); one of the reactions that I had to get ‘accustomed’ to is this: “What a waste, why don’t they do ____ (fill in blanc) or just lower their price or invest in better service avenues”. This response usually ties with companies in either a season or a general state of having a bad public reputation. Think of popular parastatals, either in a good or dire financial state, and the social investment choices they have made that you either agree or disagree with. I’m thinking about T-Shirts here.

In the age of media abundance, trust is the glue in the relationship between media and their audience. Digital has increased the ‘media pace’ exponentially. It gets sticky. A South African story can become an Australian headline, with global echoes. With thousands of influencers sharing a single story, an agenda can be set with detrimental impact on a person/country’s reputation.

You wake up with a sense of urgency. You cannot touch it, nor label it. It’s like the itch at the back of your throat, or like having the hiccups. I don’t know about you, but I hate having the hiccups. I had some furious chilli over the weekend (Carolina Reaper, I kid you not) and I felt like a Chernobyl victim for 5 seconds (it’s not funny, I know). But afterwards, I had the greatest sense of accomplishment. I did not die, I (unknowingly) had the courage to taste this crispy piece of pork belly (misled to assume its ‘hot’ like a ‘hot wing’), and then when my friend started laughing and clapping his hands, I knew it. $%&!.

Highlights
•2016 directs debates towards provision of water, sanitation, food, energy, and infrastructure throughout Namibia
•Media projects emphasis on Namibia’s sustainable management of pension funds, social grants, and ambitions towards more equal wealth, -education (ex. vocational training) and job creation
•Namibia still shadowed by the circumstances of continued economic uncertainty in world markets, poor international demand for commodity, and the negative impact of the drought (and performance of Rand)
•Namibians question the NEEEF and solidarity tax movements. The impact of the NEEEF policy must still be clarified as any uncertainties in the country’s regulatory framework hampers listings on the local index, and primary listings will become increasingly important for institutional investors seeking Namibian assets to comply with legislation
•Acts of crime; cyber security on the one end, and impact of gender based violence (women, children, rehabilitation of perpetrators), baby dumping, alcohol abuse, and high road accident rates still top the agenda on a consistent basis
•Towards 2016, Namibia meets increased reports on human trafficking and anti-corruption measures, with coverage also streaming towards digi-forums and social media channels on a more consistent basis
