at a recent media function on Friday, a fellow media colleague could not even remember his own nickname after he drank himself straight into the swimming pool. Now we know why the suicide rate is high in Namibia. The poor fellow mistook the water in the pool for more alcohol, and twice he had to be pulled out of the water, arguing that the chilling biltong was very hot in his mouth. They say he is from New Era. That’s why you should never give a damn journalist free booze!!! We hope this guy last until Xmas. Thank God there are very few rivers in the North when he goes on holiday.
