Local authors Goodwill Domingues and Renatus Imalwa will be launching their books 'A Code Named Progress' and 'Kanime' on 24 August at the National Library of Namibia. Domingues, who has another book to his name The Philosophy of Progress, says writing has been a passion for him and says it comes easy. Having sold over 400 copies thus far, he believes there is a reading culture in Namibia and we need more authors.

“The Namibians are waking up in terms of having a general reading culture although many still doubt the quality of local content. Those who dare to read however find out a much different story and their perceptions change,” said Domingues.

The books are from two different worlds and they explore the interest of both fiction and non-fiction lovers. 'Kanime' is based on a little boy from the Uukwambi tribe of the Oshiwambo people who finds himself in hazing situations.

“Kanime finds himself searching for a lost Oshiwambo tribe, but before he does he meets many enemies. The book covers the many aspects of the Oshiwambo people including mythical creatures and the story of the cattle raiders,” said Imalwa.

'A Code Named Progress' by Domingues is non-fiction book that explores the many aspects of life regarding the human mind and ideas that keep people ever struggling to make major shifts in their experience of life. According to him, the book makes mind-grappling claims regarding the human condition and brings to the surface many sensitive areas of life.

“My book has many stories surrounding reality and what it truly means to live a life filled with expectation and triumph. Julius David wrote the foreword. He is the founder Windhoek Group of Companies, so make sure to keep an eye out for it,” he said.

The event is expected by packed with people from all walks of life with performances by ML Samuel Ngodji, Anna Shalihu and Luis Munana. Tickets for the double launch are priced at N$300 and are available for reservation at [email protected] which includes both books and dinner.
