About the United Nations Institute for Namibia (UNIN)

The United Nations Institute for Namibia (UNIN) was an educational body set up by the United Nations Council for Namibia in Lusaka, Zambia on 26 August 1976. A brainchild of the then United Nations Commissioner for Namibia, Sean MacBride, the idea of UNIN was to ensure that Namibians were educated by the time Namibia got independent. This was to ensure that Namibians could take up meaningful roles in an independent Namibia. 

Namibia at that time did not have its own tertiary education system but was using the apartheid Bantu Education system, which, by design was inferior and meant specifically for blacks in South Africa and Namibia. Thus, in 1974, the United Nations Council for Namibia under Sean MacBride suggested a tertiary education institution for Namibia in Zambia. The institute was inaugurated as UNIN on 26 August 1976 by the then President of Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda. The institute was led by the then Director and current Namibia’s third President, Dr Hage Godfried Geingob.

UNIN was funded by the United Nations Fund for Namibia, for a short period, as well as financial support received from individual government donations and private organizations such as the Ford Foundation.

The institute was closed in September 1990, with its documents, records and photographic collection being transferred to the University of Namibia Library, Archives Unit.

The Collection

"We've got to build to a new crescendo, cheri," he said.

"Therefore we will have an ending that will be as none before."

His smile was decadent, his eyes were filled with lust, as well
as the soft skin of his hard cock against my sex was having its intended effect.
I used to be feeling a stronger arousal now
as I felt his cock slide between my sensitive lips.
I felt the top of his cock push agonizingly at the entrance of my pussy, and
I need to him to thrust into me hard. Instead he pulled back
and slid his hardness back about my clit.

I was aching to acquire him inside, and I really could tell that
his really need to push that wonderful hard cock inside
me was growing. His moans grew to enhance mine, and I knew
the sensation of my wet pussy lips within the head of his cock
was getting excessive both for of us.

"Permit the finale begin," he explained, and he
slid the end of his cock inside me.

We both gasped while he held his cock there for any moment.
I contracted my pussy to pull him further inside, and that he threw his head back
on the sensation. Inch by excruciating inch he pushed his cock inside me, each time I squeezed my pussy around him.
His cock felt wonderful because it filled me, but I need to all of it inside me.
I rolled to the side and rested my leg against his shoulder, and then he plunged
his cock right in.

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both equally
educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.

I'm very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something
regarding this.
