The Namibian
Mon 20 Oct 2014
 • IT seems when our government leaders make promises to the nation to build more schools, provide better medical facilities and create more jobs, etc, they delay those plans and at times brush them under the carpet that is lavishly laid out for them. But
 • SWAPO leaders, our Lord does not care much about the importance of your work as you are creating two Namibian countries. One is where your own children are assured of a better future while the other passes on poverty to the next generation.
 • HAPPY International White Cane Day! I would like to wish all visually impaired and those partially sighted a blessed day. Remember, even without sight there is vision. Let us keep on advocating our rights.
 • WHY does the government not appoint independent bodies to supervise tender boards? The tender boards are perceived to be corrupt and we don't know where to go. The relevant authorities must help us poor Namibians.
 • ONDANGWA Magistrate's Court, please familiarise yourself with court proceedings at other courts. Police officers are abusing people. One cannot even cross his or her legs or even lean against those hard chairs. Go to Windhoek or watch the Oscar Pistoriu
 • I, ELIFAS Shoombe Shaanika, lost a wallet with my personal documents in a taxi in Windhoek. If found, please contact me on 081 2167308 or 081 2984947.
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!
