 POLITICAL power without administrative power is useless. Swapo Party is not in charge of the government but the officials sitting on 'neutral fences of political convenience'. Let us have executive mayors and executive ministers and then we can blame th
 BERNARD Esau, Brazil and Paragon. Can the ACC please close down on this case. You would not recognise corruption even if it falls on your lavish new office complex like a meteorite from the sky.
 ZERO tolerance to corruption? Don't make me laugh. A Cabinet minister goes on an overseas jaunt then he declares that he does not know who paid for the trip.
 YES, 90% of the Plan fighters came from one tribe. But do not try to include skulls from that tribe among those returned from Germany as genocide victims were 100% from two tribes

2. The party is tired of the old guard.

3. What goes around comes around.

4. All of the above.
