 IS the alcohol we drink in shebeens different from that in hotels and do the shebeens brew their own special beer? I personally thought we are all buying beer from Namibia Breweries Limited. I would thus like to tell some people that they should think dee
 THERE should be an issue of tribal discrimination involved in this whole Polytechnic fight. Now that the minister of higher education is from the same tribal group as the rector, he seems to be more comfortable to do as he pleases.
 MR President and Minister of Works and Transport, drive on the road from Oshakati to Ruacana and see the bad condition it is in. It is dangerous to drive on that road and our cars are getting damaged. Please make it a priority to fix it.
 WAITING to see what the new President will do to stop the rot at Polytechnic. Millions of dollars are unaccounted for. To clean up the place, Tjivikua, Gunzel and Jaftha must go.
 REGIONAL office of the Ministry of Health and Social Services, the staff in Opuwo should get their salaries on time. Stop delaying S&T and overtime payments as well.

Slain Mbanderu chief commemorated
BRIGITTE WEIDLICH
MEMBERS of the Ovambanderu communities this weekend will commemorate their slain Chief Kahimemua Nguvauva, who was court-martialled and executed by German colonial troops on June 11 1896 at Okahandja for his participation in an uprising in the Gobabis area against German colonialism.
The uprising started in March 1896 with the Khauas-Nama people
under the leadership of Eduard Lambert, Kahimemua and Herero Chief
Nikodemus Kavikunua.
Several battles took place in that area until May and German
soldiers were supported by warriors of Chief Hendrik Witbooi and
some Rehoboth Baster.

Several dozen Herero warriors also joined the German
Schutztruppe with Chief Samuel Maharero against Kahimemua,
Nikodemus and the Khauas-Nama.

The decisive battle took place at Sturmfeld (Otjunda) on May 6
1896 and Chief Kahimemua surrendered to the combined German,
Witbooi-Nama, Baster and Herero forces.

According to the 'Chronology of Namibian History' by the late Dr
Klaus Dierks, Chief Kahimemua managed to send several of his people
to safety in Botswana after the battle.

This group was led by Kahimemua's son, Hiatuvao Nguvauva, who
was later to become the father of Namibia's present Mbanderu Chief
Munjuku Nguvauva II, who is now over 80 years old.

Chiefs Kahimemua Nguvauva and Nikodemus Kavikunua were executed
by firing squad at Okahandja by German soldiers.

Although Kahimemua's tombstone, which was later erected at
Okahandja at the execution site, says he was killed on June 11
1896, some history books give the dates of June 12 and 13.
