 CREDIT to Ms Kauraisa from the Ministry of Education's human resources department. She is the best. Keep up the good work!
 WHO compiles the inflation rates? Everyday consumer prices go up, yet we are told everything is just fine and we should keep on being happy.
 MTC, we Namibians cannot afford to pay N$2 daily. Please, change your strategy. What Tim Ekandjo said on NBC TV is unacceptable.
 ECN, you are being unrealistic! You cannot just pay us N$2 900. We had to pay for own transport, accommodation and food. What will we do with N$2 900?
 GOBABIS municipality, please build a wall around the cemetery at Epako. That place is now a playground for children. Cars drive over some graves.

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.
