Africans in the Diaspora urged to play role in defending continent's progress

Africans in the Diaspora have been urged to play their role in defending the continent's progress made since its first attainment of freedom more than 50 years ago.

This plea was made by President Hage Geingob as he returned to the historic Apollo Theatre in Harlem in New York 40 years later, as one of the guests during a panel discussion titled "Next Narrative Africa, the Bridge''.

The conversation examined the changing narrative on the continent, which used to be associated only with poverty, hunger, and other notions contrary to socio-economic development.

High Court to pronounce itself on Fishrot challenge

The Windhoek High Court is poised to announce its judgement today in response to a challenge by the Fishrot accused.


James Hatuikulipi, former Justice Minister Sacky Shanghala, and two of their co-accused want High Court Judge Kobus Miller removed from the bench, citing his age.
