Politics of tombo and the illiterates

Dear Editor,

I would like to comment on political issues among my compatriots on which politicians and their close allies are to be blamed.

Namibian models? interest is keeping the flag high

Sir,

We appreciate the article in the Informanté (Edition of November 27) on Models across the Globe. Especially Namibian models like myself, Vicky Tjirimuje, Frieda Shapopi, and Shenaaz, who are all trying to keep the Namibian flag raised and be inspirational in their own unique ways across the globe. The publicity is much appreciated. Thanks.

The statesmanship call for Pohamba

President Hifikepunye Pohamba has come in for a stick for staying clear of categorically condemning the violent behaviour and political thuggery that ensued when a Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) political gathering attracted the ire of some Swapo members at Outapi.

2008 memoirs of a sports writer

Moments before a press conference you walk into a room, which just moments ago was buzzing with animated conversation. Suddenly all conversation stops, and the few who know you proffer their hands in greeting, while the rest appraise you like some goddamn alien.
