The Namibian
Fri 24 Oct 2014
 • BY the look of things, with the sale of my motherland to foreigners and myself being unable to afford a piece of land, I will become a landless, slave to foreigners in my country of birth. My country is being mortgaged. I cry!
 • WONDER Guchu, you said it all again. If only these words and advice were taken to heart. However, things fall apart and nobody cares because people don't vote for change. - Waltraut
 • IS Hage Geingob threatening us that we must vote for Swapo because the party would not be comfortable giving up government through transition?
 • THE President's daughter is at it again. Over N$500 million worth of state contracts. Really now, is this fair? What is there to be issued? Tender Board, please cancel these contracts as soon as possible.
 • WE knew the Russian is paying US$100 million per farm. Brown envelopes en masse.
 • I WANT to thank all the staff of Onyaanya State Clinic for their good work and my vote of thanks goes also to Sister Maria Nahole. Keep it up sister. Your jokes and happy face heal us everyday. - Community member
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!
