The Namibian
Fri 19 Sep 2014
 *EVERYDAY I read that some government official or a relative of theirs is taking advantage of their positions. They know that nothing will ever happen to them.
 *PRESIDENT Hifikepunye Pohamba you are a good leader, who ruled for 10 years without even visiting Khorixas.
 *ABISAI Hangula, we want development in Havana, like clean water, electricity and toilets. We are sick and tired of this life. Do the work you were elected for.
 *THANKS to the government for the generous humanitarian donation of N$22 million. But for your information, charity begins at home. Just saying.
 *TRANSNAMIB, please do a little extra and wash your locomotives. Their dirty state is an embarrassment and it gives the impression that Namibians do not care about our national assets.
 *CONSIDERING what is happening with the fishing quotas in Namibia, I shudder to think what will happen if they discover oil in our waters.
In light of recent media reports, do you think the fisheries sector is in crisis?

1. No, it's just a media storm

2. Yes, sack the minister

3. Maybe, but do we have all the info yet?

4. Never! Namibians are getting empowered
