POLITICAL bickering and attempts to undermine President Hifikepunye Pohamba by elements within the ruling Swapo Party will only end if Pohamba takes the initiative to select and appoint his own trusted Cabinet team.
THE ruling Swapo Party has come under fire for ‘victimising’ Windhoek mayor Mathew Shikongo and three councillors in the Windhoek Municipality by recommending the quartet’s withdrawal from the council.
Banks must exercise restraint with house repossessions
Wednesday, 25 February 2009 23:59
THE ongoing spate of house repossessions by local banks that work in cahoots with rogue lawyers in Windhoek and other towns should not be allowed to continue without decisive intervention by Government and some degree of judicial activism.
THE ongoing controversy over the awarding of a University of Namibia hostel tender to a company owned by top civil servants points to the need for Government to devise policies and institutional structures that outlaw the inclination amongst civil servants to seek personal gain from government projects, a development that often promotes economic inefficiency.
THE multi-million dollar travellers’ cheques swindle reportedly masterminded by several Nigerian kingpins and the regular incidents of credit-card fraud reported by local banks clearly indicates that Namibia is fast becoming a hub for global fraudsters.
