The Namibian
Tue 2 Sep 2014
 • GOVERNMENT leaders, Namibia is a great country with a lot of potential and with massive resources, for such a small population. Who is holding up development? Why can’t every man, woman and child have a piece of the Namibian independence cake?
 • NOW that it is confirmed that alcohol is the leading contributing factor for gender-based violence, what is the government going to do to protect our mothers and sisters? Let us be bold and limit the availability and use of alcohol.
 • OUR government should reduce the tax, especially that of the lowly-paid workers. The tax is just too high.
 • SWAKOPMUND children engage in underage sex, drinking and smoking. There’s a bar next to a church and a police station just nearby.
 • TSES uses a fire vehicle to collect refuse. Maybe they want to cut the costs of buying the right vehicle. Please teach them good management.
 • I, JOSEF Shikeva, lost a wallet with my identity document, ATM cards and credit cards. If found, please contact me on 0811801100 or 0812132067.
