 • SWAPO, the Namibian people love you but you continue to deceive them. What benefits is the government giving to the ordinary people of this country? Aren't foreigners in better positions than our own folks? And is it really necessary to sell land to the
 • THE suppliers of GO BLACK in Namibia are probably rushing to the banks with big smiles every day. Imagine a parliament with so many old tatekulus and their hair is still black. Time to join the black-haired elite.
 • GOVERNMENT must start doing something to legislate land prices in Namibia. These ridiculous prices are contributing to corruption. At present, I cannot afford land with my salary alone.
 • I WANT to know who is paying for Sam Nujoma's trip to the North to promote Swapo during the various star rallies? This must stop now.
 • MINISTER of Safety and Security Immanuel Ngatjizeko, can you launch an internal investigation into the events at the Otjiwarongo Police Station? Something there is very fishy.
 • MINISTER of Education David Namwandi, we need help at Andimba Toivo ya Toivo Secondary School because our principal and the superintendent of the hostel treat the pupils badly. We need your intervention, minister.

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.
