 •POLITICS is a game and we are all being hustled. Therefore, we are clients of the state and not citizens of the state. The parties are soliciting our votes right now and it proves one thing: we, the citizens, are gullible. Politics is like war, it has no
 • SEEMS to me that the politicians do not have any clue of what the people need. The people need land where they can build their own houses or shacks. The current situation (auctions) will never work for the majority.
 • KAZENAMBO Kazenambo, you are spot on regarding the so-called Ovaherero Chief. Keep on informing us.
 • I, NDAHALAMO Dumeni, have an old South African 1D coin. It is written GEORGIVS V1 REX IMPERATOR. An interested coin collector can contact me through The Namibian newspaper on (061)-279614.
 • INSPECTOR General Sebastian Ndeitunga, what do you think of police officers who joined the force in 1990 but are still just constables? Please do something to improve their morale.
 • The MUNICIPALITY of Swakopmund traffic department and Natis must stop advertising posts and then recruit friends and relatives who don't meet the requirements but are allowed to acquire the driving codes at a later stage.

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.
