The Namibian
Thu 30 Oct 2014
 I AM tired of party promises. Even many youths complain about it. Why don't you think before you talk to people?
 LOOK who is asking for more monuments while people are starving. Could this be a way of saying I won't go down the road of infamy alone?
 MASS housing project. Someone better stop Vinson Hailulu before government and tax payers face a financial catastrophe. The warning lights are on.
 WHY is our Swapo government letting us suffer by buying Ohorongo cement at such a very high price? Please regulate the price.
 MOSES Amukoto, you did not dump RDP for Swapo, but you dumped yourself into the dustbin. Swapo will not recognise you, comrade.
Should presidential candidates have public debates before the elections?

1. Yes, it will help us make up our minds.

2. No, it will have no effect on the outcome.

3. Maybe, but will Swapo agree this time?

4. No one cares!

Turf war
Members of the Swapo and RDP parties engaged in a fist fight over the placement of political posters along Ongava Street in Okuryangava. The scuffle took place on Tuesday evening after RDP members attempted to place a campaign poster on a municipality pole, which is located inside a private yard. The owner of the house, who opted to remain unidentified, said she politely asked the RDP supporters not to place the poster on the pole as she did not want her friends and family to mistakenly think she belongs to the party. When RDP officials refused, a brawl broke out between supporters from both parties who were at the scene. Police were then called after members from both parties threatened each other. Yesterday morning when The Namibian visited the area, RDP posters from the intersection of Ekundi Street and Ongava street towards Okahandja informal settlement had been taken down, while those along Ongava street down the Okuryangava meat market were still intact. It is not known who took down the posters. - Photograph by Jordaania Andima
