 • ARE we in a free country or are we just pretending to be? There are some people crying for freedom but we Namibians are denying them that. I am a born-free. Twenty-four years are not enough to start another war. Government, you are there to protect and
 • CAN someone tell this nation the grades of those 80 girls who took part in the Olufuko Festival? How many ministers, directors and other highly respected leaders in our society allowed their children to be initiated? The Namibian, just investigate five
 • IT IS the right time that NEKA advise the ‘struggle kids’ to behave. We all fought for this country but we never disturbed the leaders in their offices. Comrade Elijah Ngurare, stop behaving like a doll. The children must go home and wait for their oppo
 • I HAVE noticed something regrettable about some people (men and women) in this country. They are defaming other people’s names to get positions either in government or in parastatals. Mr President, Prime Minister, ministers and CEOs, always investigate
 • WHAT a shame on the Namibian government and its law enforcement unit, the police. The ‘struggle kids’ are not armed. Shame on the leaders. I wonder what would have happened if it was one of your daughters covered in blood like Frieda Ndatipo.
 *SHAME on you, Hage Geingob, you are now sympathising with Frieda Ndatipo’s family and fellow ‘struggle kids’ while you said the ‘struggle kids’ are not special. Were you waiting for such a fatal incident to occur before you react?

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.
