 • BY the look of things, with the sale of my motherland to foreigners and myself being unable to afford a piece of land, I will become a landless, slave to foreigners in my country of birth. My country is being mortgaged. I cry!
 • WONDER Guchu, you said it all again. If only these words and advice were taken to heart. However, things fall apart and nobody cares because people don't vote for change. - Waltraut
 • IS Hage Geingob threatening us that we must vote for Swapo because the party would not be comfortable giving up government through transition?
 • THE President's daughter is at it again. Over N$500 million worth of state contracts. Really now, is this fair? What is there to be issued? Tender Board, please cancel these contracts as soon as possible.
 • WE knew the Russian is paying US$100 million per farm. Brown envelopes en masse.
 • I WANT to thank all the staff of Onyaanya State Clinic for their good work and my vote of thanks goes also to Sister Maria Nahole. Keep it up sister. Your jokes and happy face heal us everyday. - Community member

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.
