Lyk vir my deesdae gaan dit net oor geld vir besighede en winkels met geen rus vir party van hul werkers nie. Destyds op die 24ste Desember was alle winkels en banke regoor die land om tienuur die oggend gesluit, of jy nou jou kersinkopies of ander benodighede gekoop het of nie, en werkers kon lekker uitrus. Tye het darem baie verander.

Al ooit daaraan gedink wat mens kan spaar en daarom ander dinge kan bekostig as mens gesinsbeplanning toepas en aan die einde van die maand nie mens se salaris na Kentucky, MTC, dobbelplekke, sjebeens en klerewinkels toe dra nie?

Government properties countrywide are falling apart and are in terrible condition, and the government says tenants should "fix it themselves". The high and mighty build new and luxurious buildings when old ones are not good enough anymore. Your tenants don’t matter and private property owners are the baddies.

Huurders wat so kla, dink julle huis- of woonsteleienaars het dit verniet gekry? Hulle betaal duur vir eiendom en dan nog vir levies boonop ook, en jul wil dit verniet he? Ek verhuur ‘n woning al 30 jaar lank en betaal al die pad tax op die huur! Ek kan boeke skryf oor huurders en die ongelooflike vernieling en skade wat hulle agter los, of nie huur betaal nie. Daar is mense wat in hul agterplaas kamers van 3x4m uit hout en swart plastieksakke bou sonder bad of toilet en dit teen N$800 verhuur. Hoe is daai vir uitbuiting?

Dis nie net manne wat skuldig is nie, ons vrouens ook. Voorbehoed en ook kondome is gratis. Ons leer daagliks in skole, koerante, bylae oor gesinsbeplanning en nog steeds kry julle kinders! So as jy dom is...

The defence budget for current year is N$6 billion, plus N$124.5 million? Parliament wants to increase the budget? Kanyele wants to buy modern weapons to defend our country? Against which enemy? Defence has no transparency or accountability, why not? The people have a right to know and to hold government accountable for every cent spent.

Werkgewers neem kennis. Die wet bepaal as jy vir jou werkers nie Social Security of assuransie het vir beserings wat hulle aan diens opdoen nie, moet jy die verantwoordelikheid maar aanvaar en alle koste verbonde aan die eis dra om jou maatskappy te beskerm teen siviele eise.

As vakansiegangers het ons onlangs uitstekende diens by Probst ontvang, veral vanaf Essie wat ons bedien het. Die diens was uit die boeke uit. Baie dankie, ons waardeer dit opreg.

Halfkaal mense wat uitlokkend dans met n bottel of glas drank in die hand op NBC TV. Hulle doen waarlik ‘n uitstekende werk om die mense op te voed.

Government should be ashamed of the condition of the dirt roads, especially in national parks and the Sossusvlei road. This is shocking especially when it comes to tourists who bring thousands of dollars into the country.

In Namibië is daar baie welaf mense wat in baie groot luukse huise in die stad bly. Hulle is soms ook net vier persone in die 'kastele'. Kan die regering nie ook maar daar asb ingryp nie? Van onse mense bly 16 en meer mense in 'n vrek piepklein gehuggie van net twee vertrekke! Mense, dit kan mos nie so aangaan nie?
