 • WHAT makes me a proud Namibian? Is it landlessness, homelessness, unemployment, corruption, the high crime rate, or is it the banks' discriminatory policies, particularly FNB Namibia's?
 • INSPECTOR General of the Namibian Police Sebastian Ndeitunga, this nation wants to hear why you sent members to Lesotho? Namibia experienced rebellion in the Zambezi region in the past but we did not involve foreign forces.
 • INSPECTOR General of the Namibian Police Sebastian Ndeitunga, how can you keep recruits for three months without paying them? They cannot buy cosmetics and other basic needs. Are they not human like you? Your administration is not improving. Shame on yo
 • FIRST Capital Investment Housing scheme is such a big disappointment. They promise to give pre-approvals within a week or a few days, but they take months. To make it worse, their employees mistreat clients and answer them badly, especially at Ondangwa.
 • I AM concerned and want to ask the Usakos Junior Secondary School staff when and where their so-called rules and regulations apply? If a learner is caught cheating during the final Grade 10 exams and one reports it, then that story is just hidden and di
 • LEAVING clients in long queues while you go to lunch should be declared illegal in this country. Unam, this is ridiculous. People actually have to be back at work by 14h00.

Airforce plane in near horrific plane crash

A NAMIBIAN airforce plane crash landed on the Omega airstrip while on a mission to fetch 33 bodies that were recovered in the horrific Bwabwata National Park plane crash on November 30.
A NAMIBIAN airforce plane crash landed on the Omega airstrip while on a mission to fetch 33 bodies that were recovered in the horrific Bwabwata National Park plane crash on November 30.

This was confirmed by the Minister of Defence Nahas Angula who said the Omega airstrip is 70 kilometres from where the Mozambican plane crashed.

“The plane [number NAF-3-642] crash landed because the airstrip has not been used for a long time and there is overgrowth of grass and bushes everywhere. The plane was extensively damaged and a team of expects is busy assessing to see if it will be written off or if it can be repaired. There were six crew members and none of them sustained any injuries,” said Angula.

The accident occurred a day after the burned wreckage of a Mozambican Airlines plane was found in a remote area in northeastern Namibia.

The airforce plane had been dispatched to transport the remains of the victims of the plane crash but could not accomplish its mission after it was reduced to a wreck.

According to a source the plane was extensively damaged and its wings looked like they would fall off anytime. A bulldozer was reportedly called in and immediately pulled the plane out of the bushes.

“I do not know if anyone was hurt but the plane looked really bad. We tried as much as possible to find out what happened but the army was chasing everyone away. No one wanted to speak about it and I do not know why they want to keep it a secret,” said the source.
