Karlien on Nova

NAMIBIA FUTURE MEDIA  |  Podcast , ±11 min episodes every 3 weeks  |  Broadcast schedule  | 
You want a friend, a friend that’s not perfect. A friend that sees the lighter side of life (perhaps weirder side) and takes your attention away from your own issues for a while. A friend who manages to make you see your issues differently. Perhaps making you realize that your issues aren’t that different at all (we ALL have issues)!

Brave Para-cyclists to take on the Desert Dash

The 2022 edition of the Nedbank Desert Dash will for the first time see para-cyclists competing in the 397-kilometre, 24-hour race, that sees cyclists riding through the Namib Desert, from Windhoek to Swakopmund.

The Run Along Foundation in collaboration with the Namibia Paralympic Committee (NPC), with the support of Nedbank Namibia, has registered a four-person hand cycling team as well as a four-person visually impaired cycling team.

Karlien spoke to the team manager and some of the cyclists about the challenge ahead.

Black Beach - 491 Days in one of the world and Africa's worst prisons.

What was supposed to be a short business trip to Equatorial Guinea turned into a journey to the depths of hell. 

Black Beach, located on Bioko island off the mainland of Equatorial Guinea, is one of the world’s most feared prisons, notorious for its brutality and inhumane conditions. 

In 2013, South African businessman Daniel Janse van Rensburg set off to the West African country to finalise a legitimate airline contract with a local politician. Within days, Daniel was arrested by the local Rapid Intervention Force and detained without trial in the island’s infamous ‘Guantanamo’ cells, and was later taken to Black Beach. This is his remarkable story of survival over nearly two years, made possible by his unwavering faith and the humanity of a few fellow inmates. 

Black Beach is a harrowing account of Daniel's nightmare ordeal behind bars at the notorious Black Beach prison in Equatorial Guinea, West Africa.

An explosive expose on corruption and abuse of power at the highest levels of government in the oil rich nation of Equatorial Guinea and Daniel's ultimate journey into hell trapped behind the walls of one of the Africa's most brutal prisons.

An open and honest conversation about depression and suicide

Karlien asked David Bishop and Hermien Elago to join her in studio where the three openly discussed their own experiences with depression and suicide.

In a world where suicide rates are getting out of hand, this is an important conversation to have.

If you have ever felt like that, know that you are not alone...

The heart of stone speaks the life of love

There is currently an exhibition at the Bellhause Atelier and Galerie that took my breath away.

The heart of stone speaks the life of love - Kudzanai Katetere

Solo stone sculpture exhibition until 14 July 2022

The Power of Love collection of sculptures by KUDZANAI KATERERE is a dangerous exhibition. It will make you feel.

The stone pulls. Your hand is drawn to the skin of the stone because you have to feel it.

His work has been exhibited in Canada, Czechoslovakia, Germany, South Africa, the USA and the United Kingdom, featured on the BBC and honoured by the National Gallery of Zimbabwe and the African Millennium Foundation.

He is considered one of very few of the 3rd generation of Shona sculptors to have remained true to the ethos of the grandmasters of the stone sculpture movement in the way that he depicts the interaction between man and nature.
