 MINISTER of Justice Utoni Nujoma, when will justice take its course in the 'pit latrine corruption case'? Until when will the big fish be protected?
 A TRUE leader is a person like Jonas Savimbi. He was killed alongside his people in the front line of the battlefield. That is what I call a true hero.
 PRESIDENT Hifikepunye Pohamba, could you please tell us when the road from Oshikango to Ondobe in the Oshikango constituency will be tarred?
 NO communication, no democracy. No unity, no love but only hate, victimisation, favouritism and hypocrisy at AI Steenkamp Primary School. Education Minister, please intervene.
 WHY is the Streethouse sale not applicable to the Otjiwarongo branch?
 MTC, please correct your clock, it is six minutes ahead. Many cellphones take their time from you.

Airforce plane in near horrific plane crash
Limba Mupetami
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.
