Recognition
It's a pity they didn't show on TV all the people who received honorary recognition from the President. I am just wondering if Mrs De Klerk from WAD, who did much to empower women for 24 years, also received recognition.

Ebola
Please President Pohamba, don’t start crying if Namibians became a target of Ebola, because people have been begging you to stop people from affected countries to enter Namibia, but to no avail. Read more about Say it

Our fragile democracy wanes

Guardian of Democracy writes:
An incident at the Swapo headquarters yesterday where one of the struggle kids, Frieda Ndatipo, was shot at the tender age of 26 during a peaceful demonstration is a sad day for democracy in Namibia.

Open letter to Pohamba, Geingob and MPs

My Constitution My Decision writes:
We appeal to you from under a cloud of grave concern at the nature of unfolding events on the political and legislative landscape. This appeal concerns the appearance of, and subsequent official motivations for the tabling and adoption of the Third Constitutional Amendment Bill.
As you are no doubt aware, as a coalition of civil society organisations, we have over past weeks voiced our considerable unease with the Bill.

Andimba Toivo ya Toivo
I want to congratulate Minister Nahas Angula for the writing the very informative booklet on our sometimes unsung liberation hero Andimba Toivo Ya Toivo. The booklet is well-written and I hope it can also be made available to schoolchildren, so they can know about the rich and fascinating history of this great son of the soil.

*Namibian Sun, thank you for giving us the free booklet on Ya Toivo’s life in your newspaper. I hope it can be distributed in schools because today’s generation needs to know how people sacrificed for this country to be free. Read more about Say it

Housing delivery to low-income groups

Tulongeni Nomukumo writes:
The media has recently been reporting about the shack fires.
To lose one’s belongings is horrific and horrible.
The most reported cases were in major town such as Windhoek, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.
These are the urban centres that are not doing much when it comes to affordable land delivery for low-income groups.
The nation is really crying for better living conditions, security of tenure, safer cities and affordable services in our urban centres.
Elections come and go and promises are made in terms of better houses.

Birth rate
Namibia’s birth rate decreasing is a success story. It shows that at least some people plan their offspring responsibly. Carry on along this road, for the love of your children.

Venaani
Namibians complain too much! Why are you offended by Venaani's stay in Ombili? This man did it out of his own will or did he threaten you in anyway? Read more about Say it

Social modelling, modernisation and protection

Metusalem Neib writes:
Learning, democracy, fundamental values and health go hand in hand.
Namibian social modelling, modernisation and social protection aims to go beyond this, taking a positives approach and incorporating normative principles about what is to be done.
These principles are related to the political economy and the adequacy of social protection.
The concepts of social modelling need to be discussed, including the changes to the plight of the unemployed, the dishing out of disabled and elderly grants.
