 THE churches have the means to teach from a tender age at Sunday schools even before a child reaches kindergarden - the need to respect elders, maintain discipline, and foster and cement good mannerisms; they also deal with hunger, poverty issues and eve
 CITY of Windhoek, are you aware of the terrible rotten smell in Marula, Smarties and Wanaheda?. We have contracted endless flu like symptoms. Do you really care about our health or are you just happy to take our money? Please act!
 IF nannies get N$1 200 a month, how will single working mothers manage because by law you only get N$300 maintenance money from the father?
 I THINK it's about time that Namibia moves on from the claiming phase and start taking action. Big ups to Job Amupanda!
 NANGOLO Mbumba, shame on you! Leave Job Amupanda alone. He did not insult the nation like you did. Do you think we forgot what you said last year at the Sam Nujoma Stadium?

Swapo wins Sibbinda
JAN POOLMAN
THE Swapo candidate for the regional council by-election in the Sibbinda Constituency in Caprivi, Ignatius Chunga, has been elected to replace Felix Mukupi, who died in a car accident on June 16 this year.
As with the 2010 regional elections only 42% of the 6 248 registered voters in the Sibbinda Constituency cast their votes on Friday.
Swapo's Chunga obtained 1 467 votes. This represents 55,9% of the vote. His predecessor garnered 77% of the votes during the 2010 regional council election, which shows that the ruling party has lost support among the Mafwe tribe in the Sibbinda Constituency. The constituency is deeply divided between the Mafwe and the Masubia tribes, which do not see eye to eye.
The voter turnout was about 5% higher than in the 2010 regional council election. A total of 2 621 people cast their votes in the by-election, while 2 490 did so in 2010.
A total of 801 voters supported the candidate of the official opposition, the Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP), Assens Malumbano, which represents 30,6% of the vote. In the 2010 election, the RDP could only garner 503 votes or 20,2%.
Even the DTA, which obtained 69 votes in the Sibbinda Constituency in the 2010 election, doubled its support with 121 votes for its candidate, Alextuis Mibonda.
The Congress of Democrats (CoD), which did not participate in the 2010 regional council election, received 232 votes for its candidate Alfred Chilinda.
