Namibia is a country with a poisonous legacy of inequality as a colony of Germany and later of apartheid South Africa, that only received its independence in 1990. Since then Namibia has been reducing inequality since 1993, with a series of practical policies like raising the minimum wage and introducing free primary and secondary education. Namibia is one of a growing number of countries worldwide which are showing their commitment to reducing inequality, and putting other governments to shame. In this episode we hear an interview between Winnie and the President of Namibia, Hage Geingob, and we discuss the policies that Namibia and other countries like Ethiopia are putting in place to close the gap.
