  • 8 Indian spices that prevent cancer | The New Age Online

    When the opposition in question is an adamant disease like cancer, our armoury should be packed with a lifestyle of regular health check-ups and a diet including foods that double as anti-cancer agents.

  • Namibia: Putting the Vanyemba Recognition Issue in Context (part I)

    The issue that has of late received media currency regarding the possibility of recognising the 'Vanyemba' groupings, as a distinct traditional community and authority in Namibia, is not really new as some might think. Since then the same issue has been recurring within private groups and organisations in the Kavango regions and other regions in Namibia. It must be noted that whereas the first 'Vanyemba Association' (VA) committee consisted of notable elderly men, who were all Rundu-based residents, the current committee is composed of young men (30-40 years old), who are all Windhoek-based. To start with, it is not true that all the 'Vanyemba' are recent migrants into the so-called Kavango kingdoms, namely Kwangali, Mbunza, Shambyu, Gciriku and Mbukushu.
