Thu 27 Nov 2014
 I AM very concerned about the future of the Joyful Choir competition. It started on the wrong footing. Favouritism won't take us anywhere; it will just break us. Who wants to be part of a sinking competition?
 NANGOLO Mbumba must go and teach his own people their language of origin at Omboloka. They are suffering from being taught in Oshikwanyama.
 MBUMBA must go because we are not ready to be abused by the people we put into power. Don't destroy our party. If you want to go, just go peacefully.
 WELL done, comrade Nangolo Mbumba. What you said on Saturday at the Swapo star rally is true. You were not supposed to apologise.
 NANGOLO Mbumba, you acted foolishly but don't worry. God will take care of you for insulting us in a live broadcast. Are you mad?

Chinese sentenced for overstaying
ADAM HARTMAN
TWO Chinese nationals were sentenced in the Swakopmund Magistrate's Court last week for overstaying their permissible time in Namibia.
Both men were arrested on September 18 and both pleaded guilty.
Guo Wei Zhang (47) was sentenced to pay a fine of N$6 000 or spend one year in jail for contravening the Immigration Control Act by remaining in Namibia after the expiry of his visitor's permit.
Zhang apparently used an agent to process his travel documents, using 'severe misrepresentations' with regard to his rights to remain in Namibia.  On the day of had arrest, he had overstayed his welcome by five months and 27 days.
Sun Lei (31) was sentenced for contravening the Immigration Control Act by remaining in Namibia after the expiry of his worker's permit. He is a geologist assistant. He had to pay a fine of N$5 000 or spend 11 months in jail. On the day of his arrest, he had overstayed by 149 days.
Swakopmund Magistrate Bernhard Tjatjara said in his judgement that the accused - even on their first trip to Namibia - showed complete disregard for the sovereignty of Namibia and for the Immigration Control Act.
'If such a situation persists, Namibia's government and its citizens will be regarded internationally to foster a climate of perceived acceptance of international illegal immigrants,' he said.
