Gender Minister Doreen Sioka’s role should be reviewed in light of her comments on polygamy.
Does she seriously think that introducing polygamy of all things is a solution to gender-based violence? She needs her head examined by a shrink and perhaps needs a frontal lobotomy to correct her reasoning skills. To think for a single minute that introducing polygamy is going to solve the problem of gender-based violence is a complete pipe dream! Read more about ~Polygamy Seriously
I just don’t get it why Namibians prefer queuing up for almost anything under the sun.
Okay, let me rephrase that: Why are we made to queue up for everything?
Where is the logic in telling someone who can hardly breathe to wait in line because he “came last” and “there were others before him”?
I am done with queues and will not queue up, even if my life depended on it!
All my life, I had obeyed rules. Yeah, I was a good boy - always helpful to the elderly and I have never become tired lending a hand to a neighbour in distress. Thank you Clarence Carter! Read more about Queues, queues and more queues!
There was no need for President Hage Geingob to declare this Friday a public holiday. People could still have been able to go and vote from work and go back to work. This is ridiculous and Namibians are so lazy they have actually been hoping for this.
*The culture of dishing out public holidays is really out of hand. People have gone to vote in elections before during working hours. Please Mr President you can’t please everyone and you are just encouraging laziness. Read more about Say its
The presidency this week finally came out with guns blazing regarding what it termed “unsubstantiated” media reports on the goings-on at State House.
During a media briefing, Presidential Affairs Minister Frans Kapofi lashed out at journalists, among others, accusing members of the Fourth Estate of not reporting accurately on issues.
He was specifically referring to reports that former RDP leader Hidipo Hamutenya and former Speaker of the National Assembly Theo-Ben Gurirab would return to government as presidential advisors to the Head of State Hage Geingob. Read more about Embracing transparency and accountability
I still don’t understand what is going on with our President and asking people to pay more tax in the form of the s-called solidarity tax. We are already poor Mr President but you keep taking away from us while you increase the already rich parliamentarians’ water and electricity allowances. Read more about Say its
As the nation prepares to vote in the local and regional authority elections, there are fears that there will be a low voter turnout at polling stations across the country. Despite 25 years of democracy, Namibia still suffers high voter apathy, especially among the ranks of the youth. Bar the presidential and parliamentary elections of last year, there have significant signs that enthusiasm to vote in local and regional authority elections has been waning in the country. If the turnout of last year’s by-elections is anything to go by, then we don’t expect much to change. Read more about Voter apathy is a killer
Congratulations to former President, Hifikepunye Pohamba and I am very proud to hear that you will use your prize money to support young Namibians to pursue training in agriculture and food production. You are the kind of leader we need and not the kinds that keep draining our pockets for useless advisors.
*I want to congratulate former President Hifikepunye Pohamba for getting his prize money. I am also proud that he plans to use the money for food production. We are very proud of you and may God bless you more.

It is that time of the year when we all try to review whether we deserve a present from Santa Claus or whether we should try again next year.
It is no different with elections and the time has come where politicians come out to and tell us how they have been good girls and boys.
Forgive me Santa, but it is election time again and all of a sudden all the politicians are religious, weeping with the downtrodden, speaking in local languages, sharing a bread or two, helping the elderly, clothing the orphans and making promises. Read more about Forgive me Santa
