The Namibian
Thu 18 Sep 2014
 WELL done Dudley for your cartoons. You say what most rational-thinking people know.
 HOW dare BH make such a mockery of poor Namibians like you did in The Namibian newspaper? Greed will destroy this nation. Is there another tender for BH in the pipeline for him to make such outrageous statements?
 MINISTRY of Youth, National Service, Sports and Culture, can't you find a qualified Namibian to head the Berg Aukas training centre instead of a foreigner? What a leadership vacuum in this country.
 FELLOW citizens, help us to understand why the Oshikoto education directorate takes more than a month to pay teachers for holiday lessons. Next time the teachers will go to well-organised regions.
 HOW do you explain this. The NBC manager in Otjiwarongo is forever out of office doing his personal errands during office hours. NBC head office do something to stop this rot.

Delaying
The two Americans accused of murdering the 25-year-old Andre Heckmair in a shooting in Windhoek on 7 January 2011 do not appear to be in a hurry to go on trial. With the trial of Kevan Donnell Townsend (left) and Marcus Kevin Thomas scheduled to start before Judge Christie Liebenberg in the Windhoek High Court on 8 October, the latest development in the two men's case is that the defence lawyer who had been representing Townsend, Vetu Uanivi, has withdrawn from the case. Townsend, dressed in an Osama Bin Laden T-shirt and sagging cargo pants for his latest pre-trial appearance in court, told Judge Liebenberg yesterday that he has chosen defence lawyer Boris Isaacks to now represent him. However, Isaacks indicated to the court that he is not available during the dates in October and the first half of November that have been allocated for the trial. Thomas has also not yet managed to secure his own money to pay his lawyer, Werner van Rensburg, and has not applied for State-funded legal aid either, the judge was told further. The accused men's case was postponed to Wednesday next week for another pre-trial hearing to establish if their trial will start as planned next month. - Photograph by Werner Menges
