Wed 27 May 2015
 *WHAT happened to the think-tank committee? Where are the minutes for all the matters they discussed?
 *MR President, stop NamPower from buying 20 000 solar geysers from China. Let us use our tax money to build our own solar geyser factory, create jobs and stop shipping our hard-earned money abroad.
 *MINISTER of education, a vision school was promised to be built at Epembe in Ohangwena region. When are you going to start with the construction? We are still waiting.
 *WE, the employees of Lewcor at Navachab Mine, are very unhappy because this company pays us peanuts with no medical aid. They only want to benefit alone. Labour minister, please hear our cries.

3. It doesn't matter. Students will enroll anyway.
