Young Namibian cook Kyle Farrer left for India earlier this week to represent his country at the Young Chefs Olympiad currently taking place there.

Speaking to him before his departure, Kyle - a student at the Silver Spoon Hospitality Academy - said he was feeling both nervous and excited. “It still doesn’t feel real. It is finally happening, but it doesn’t feel like I am actually on my way to India,” he told Windhoek Express.

WE also spoke to Susan Grobler, whose three-year-old daughter Mariana travelled to America in December in the hopes of restoring some of her sight. Mariana was born with a genetic defect causing her corneas to turn white.

Also read about how one entrepreneur is asking people to drop off their old or unused mugs at her eatery in the capital in a bid to decrease her carbon footprint.

In other news, residents of the Hakahana informal settlement in the capital are up in arms against the City of Windhoek, claiming that it failed in the timely collection of garbage, forcing them to live in unhygienic conditions.

Further afield, the education ministry plans to upgrade and renovate facilities at two government school hostels in the Omaheke region this year. Read more about these developments in this week’s edition.
