And despite the obvious weaknesses in our electoral processes, it would be absurd of any registered voter to simply look away on Election Day and not make their democratic voice heard.
True, the entire political basket of Namibia is filled with rotten apples, by default in rare cases, but some apples are less rotten than others.

Those who are in it for ‘honourable’ titles and for the dollar will be ushered through the exit door at the earliest available opportunity. May the best candidates, who genuinely want to serve, win!
