Wed 1 Apr 2015
 PRESIDENT Hage Geingob, please give us a response on the issue of tax-free bonuses. Why does a bonus have to be taxed if it is only given once a year?
 COMRADE President, congratulations! I humbly request your office to send a team to evaluate the salaries for administrative officers up to the position of control administrative officers.
 MAYOR of Helao Nafidi Town Council, please do something to improve the living standard of the council workers. Currently the cleaners get only N$600 per month. We are tired of this situation.
 ONANDJOKWE Lutheran Hospital pharmacy, please speed up your service. We are dying while waiting for our medication because you are so slow.
 POLICE officers are not underpaid, they just over-commit themselves with lots of insurance policies and cash loans. Police are paid even more than bank clerks, believe me.
POLL
Is Hage Geingob's cabinet the right size to deal with Namibia's biggest issues?

1. Yes, his appointments are solid

2. No, too many cooks spoil the broth

3. Maybe, but he'll have to manage them well

4. Hell no! The problems are too big to fix in 1 term

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.
