The day is almost gone, and I am thinking I need to write my first blog. Well, this blog is for you, share your thoughts, your culture, your innovative and leadership contributions on how we can improve Africa. Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.
I love Africa not only for its diverse cultures but the people of Africa. I will soon start to travel and explore Africa. I can’t believe I been living under the rock – I have not even visited my neighbouring countries, Swaziland, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Zambia or even Botswana just to mention a few. Well, that’s about to change. I am looking forward to experience different cultures out there, meet with the different people and share their cultures and their contributions.
A little about my county of birth Namibia, “the land of the brave”- Namibia has a rich cultural background and with ample business opportunities. I am proud to be born in a country that provides opportunities for both local and international investors and continues to create jobs for their people. Education and vocational training, which are so important to me, have taken great strides enabling Namibia to have skills and professionals in many ambits within the Namibian borders. It brings so much joy to me that Namibia this year is chairing SADC. This empowers the country to keep up with global developments and to be a competitive player in world arenas.
Namibia is situated in the South Western part of Africa, with a population of 2.6 million inhabitants estimated. It is bordered by South Africa, Zambia and Angola in the North, Botswana in the East and the Atlantic Ocean in the West. Namibia is reputed to be one of the driest countries in the Sub-Saharan Africa, boasting the highest sand dunes in the world.
I invite you to visit Namibia, it’s a beautiful country – I personally love its culture and the tranquility you will find there.
I will tell you more next time about my other country South Africa. Keep checking in, it was good to have you here.
Cheers for now…
