Food for Thought
*All taxis and buses used for public transport must have their speed adjusted only up to 120km. This will reduce accidents and deaths on our roads.
*I think Ongushu must be able to provide the Ministry after-sales-service. After selling the Mercedes-Benz to the Ministry Ongushu must not disappear into thin air. It must offer technical services. Permanent Secretary George Simatta has the right to know how Ongushu is going to do it. We are not talking of Corollas but Mercs. Otherwise the taxpayer is going to be the loser!
*TALKING of African historical, moral and cultural values cherished and safeguarded, it begs this age-old question: Have we Africans ever collectively or severally showed remorse and apologized to our own for selling our own into slavery during the slave trade era for trinkets, alcohol, guns and ammunition? If not, where does that leave our self-righteous sense of morality to judge others so harshly? In the absence of repentance, remorse and moral introspection, shall we not continue selling what is left of Africa? Just asking.

*TEQUILA! You did it again with your latest CD, my Golden voice! I am so proud of you and may you continue do the good work and I wish you all the best with your future plans. Ė From your fan
*ACC could please tell us your findings into the probe of clergyman Semís misappropriation of funds? We also want to hear who brought the issue to your attention, since it was an internal church board issue, and was made a public case. We the public want to hear all the names of the parties involved, even if itís a prominent political, business and church figure. Untangle the chain to the last link. You are not going down alone Pastor Sem.
*LET us disband the toothless and costly ACC now. What is the logic of investing millions in costly investigations, when the bulk of reports are not disclosed, for fear of exposing politically well-connected and high profile people. It is a fuss!
*NAMIBIA should find comrade Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and give him and his family (and the billions of dollars) safe haven here in Namibia.
*THE struggle continues ... when they say aluta continua, I am sure they mean the looting continues. We fought for Independence, now we need to fight to get rid of corrupt & greedy leadership. Truly the struggle continues.
*IT is a pity that the Chief of Police is still in the dark why our white compatriots are not interested in joining NamPol. Since 1990 whites were called racist, imperialist, boers, colonialists and settlers on national events by Ministers who forgot that we had implemented a process of national reconciliation. Ndeitunga lost a court case against one of his senior Police officers who complained tribalism is ruling supreme in the force. Mr Ndeitunga, first get your house in order.
*THE Namibian Police must first deliver quality professional service to the community before demanding benefits such as high salaries and co-operation from the community.
*Teachers are very confused about the school calender for next year 2012. So far there are two. Now which one among the two is the right one? Clarify for us please. And do something about the holiday for August. Itís too short and learners have no time to refresh their tired minds. This is one of the contributing factors to high failure rate in Namibia. Do something about it.
*TEACHERS should wear uniforms so that we can distinguish them in the public like other job categories.
*I am a learner from Da-Palm Secondary School. We really have a problem. We donít have computer classes and the copy machine is always broken.
*FEMALE nurses, your uniform is becoming like a mini skirt. Please we should not see your knees. It is not a fashion shoot or marketing company. It is a hospital.

*CRIMINALS are just all over the world and Namibia cannot be excluded. Can the Minister of Safety and Security send a team of Police officers to carry out a proper investigation on the number of deaths relating to food poisoning in Kavango? The culprit(s) must be brought to book. I was so hurt to hear someoneís children died like that.
*HALF of the taxisí seat belts in Gobabis are not working. What are the traffic officers doing in this town?
*MR Noa, your team is not done with Khorixas Town Council. There is corrupt recruitment of friends and family members in senior positions. Someone was allegedly appointed with a labour diploma as the strategic head of technical services because he is the best friend to the CEO and the human resource practitioner is his aunt. People are appointed but they canít perform.
*To the Police commissioner in Erongo Region. We have a problem with Uis Police, If you report a case, they look at whether you have money or not. If you donít have, then they will not take your case. Innocent people thus go to jail and the guilty ones go free.
*WE donít want leaders with criminal records to be !Oe#gan leaders.
*SWAPO Party won the last elections of Daures constituency and not Immanuel Gaseb and his traditional leaders. Apius Auxab fight Swapo and not our traditional leaders.
*IMMANUEL Gaseb is from the Royal House and not Abed Ganaseb and his followers. Donít try to confuse Damaras.
*CITY of Windhoek must stop with their scheme of appointing agents who are their brothers and well-connected people at the expense of the rate payers.
*WE are very tied of the noise at Eveline street. They must stop making noise at 9h30.
Law and Order
*IF people are demanding for abortion and prostitution in Namibia, than the Government should also put marijuana (weed) into consideration. If abortion and prostitution are to be legalised in Namibia then marijuana must also be legalised.
Ė Concerned citizen
*ALCOHOL should be sold only from 13h00 until 20h00 on Mondays to Saturdays. Selling alcohol from 08h00 during weekdays makes no sense since most buyers should be at work that time! Alcohol shouldnít be bought during the most productive hours (08h00-13h00). Please law reviewers, review the alcohol selling time to suit our needs.
*HOW will our children pass if the businessman at Eveline Street are making noise from 7h00 to 19h00?
*BEFORE Independence most uniformed personnel were very neat but now most of them donít care about their uniform. Do they need soap and shoe polish? Give us the tender to do their laundry.

Spanish fish raid
*SWAPO government has failed. They only have a profit motive and are selling our resources for their own benefit. Rio Tinto owns a mine and Pescanova the fishing. Thank you Marcos Garcia and John Grobler for opening our eyes.
*I want to ask the so-called fishing magnate in Walvis Bay, as it is reported in The Namibian, and those who are involved in this to go and read their Bibles (Luke16 verse 19 to 31). You will not take money with you. What is the use to gather all the wealth while the people in your eyes are so poor?
*THOSE unpatriotic Namibians who supported the Springboks during the recent encounter with Welwitchias, we know you all. Your days are counted. Pack and go to SA before we chase you out. You are not welcome in Namibia
*REGARDING the fracas at the handing over of skulls, the Germans did not do something different from the politics that we know in Namibia. A senior Government officer can not address the mixture of Namas, Hereros, human rights activists and opposition politicians.
*NAMIBIANS you will see that 100 years will pass again with Germans just playing with us like they did before. To show them we mean what we say, just take back our land.
*WHOEVER is responsible for the recruitment of cabin crews at Air Namibia must be transparent and fair. Give equal opportunity to everybody (not only friends and family) and stick to the minimum of 25 points you mentioned in the advertisement.
*CAN someone help. How does the social security work? I am a member and the money is always deducted but according to the (SSC) office, they donít get the money.
*GOBABIS Municipality: Why do we pay for water and electricity? The water is not clean. Itís too dirty (brown) for human consumption and the power gets off sometimes for days especially in Epako. Why do we have to suffer while we are paying?
