From The Twittersphere
LIFE is a soapie laced with reality. Or so it seems judging by the Twitter timelines (TLs) of some Namibians! A few of yesterday’s dispatches from the frontline of daily life – from rent to Russia, education to revolution, beer to peacocks ... and more.
@linci_nam: The Rents Ordinance law should be amended to make provision for the establishment of a regulatory board.
@Homa10i: Africa’s growing middle class is fuelling development across the continent. But poor infrastructure, corruption and political conflict are hampering their efforts.
@ngurare: Those who betrayed the revolution in the former Soviet Union were not youth but elders. I am just saying..:-)
@Principal_EL: Learning to read is a challenge for 1/2 the kids in nation! If a child is not able to read at grade level by end of 3rd ... they will struggle!
@Nthugbaby: And let us not start on the lie of free primary education. We know what happens when the parents can’t pay the voluntary school fees. SMH
@DJ_MacNam: Struggle Kids vs Born Frees - RDP vs Swapo - GMP vs Mshasho - Twitter vs Facebook -
@Pendazano_gbb: When a Wambo starts a sentence with ‘Ina ndi kudhina’ (I don’t want to disrespect you ...) expect to be asked a ridiculous favour.
@WHKsFinest: Do traffic cops realize that they become a dangerous obstacle when they jump into the road like excited little kids?
@aamupolo: Another day of fighting for my rights as a consumer. To own something in Namibia can be a pain when it breaks down, this time it’s my tyre.
Big Brother StarGame
@StargameZimfan: Feels really good to vote my Lady May #Team-Zim let’s go voting Lady May until Sunday #StarGame
@hot_slap: Every time Keitta opens his armpit, 2,500 viewers grab the remote control. #Stargame #BigBroAfrica
@Tuliz: If Goldie gets dropped in a forest, peacocks will think she’s one of them ...
Food For Thought
@hafenislice: Visionary leadership is contagious, once again don’t wait to catch it from others; be a carrier, lead by example or get out of the way ...
@lizkaindi: Never underestimate the power of persistence.
@Albi_Me: The world doesn’t need any more cowards!
@UberFacts_Nam: 9/10 ... Namibian girls reuse their pantyhose as a doek for their weaves when they go to sleep
@Uiisira: Weekend beer, Sunday beer and soccer beer all taste different ...
@bubbs07: People who frequent in my dreams need to stop. They’re making my dreams look like a soapie. Anyway, happy Tuesday boys and girls.
