Wanaheda’s child waitress a blatant case of abuse
Rumazz was shocked to see an eight-year-old girl dishing out trays of alcohol and cool drinks to guzzlers and grey haired revellers at a popular traditional food outfit in Wanaheda last week. Firstly, it is illegal for minors to handle, let alone sell alcohol in any form.
Secondly, although it is claimed that this innocent minor ‘likes’ working in the restaurant cum bar, using her as a waitress is a blatant case of child abuse.
It is appalling that Nampol’s Women and Child Protection Unit lets such violations of children’s rights go unchecked, and only tends to report sexual abuse.
What time does she do her homework? Where are her parents? Namibia needs a vigilant child rights watchdog. The Girl-child network should be more vigilant. Prevention is better than cure; this child should be saved before it is too late.
“I will go to Informanté”
One of the biblical commandments, “Don’t use God’s name in vain”, has clearly been diverted for misuse on this paper. Rumazz has learnt of various individuals who have recently taken to settling scores by using this paper’s good name.
These personalities, some of whom are known to Informanté, have been threatening their enemies and debtors by using Informanté’s good name.
Some have even gone as far as to phone their friends using pseudonyms or impersonating this paper’s reporters in an attempt to ruffle their feathers.
Rumazz is appalled at this gimmick and would like to send a strong warning to offenders to desist from using this paper’s name in vain.
When party membership and money meet
Remember the local hip-hop artist with a vernacular name that translates to ‘the cave’? The very one who was arrested in Katutura on suspicion of possession of marijuana?
Well he unknowingly bumped into Rumazz last weekend at a popular spot in ‘Tura’ where he proceeded to brag his lungs out, not knowing that Rumazz was around.
He started by saying that a leader of one of the newly born political parties had approached him and asked him to join them.
He then said that a bishop and another top leader of the party, both known to Rumazz, picked him up from Single Quarters and took him to the Party President’s house cum office.
“He offered me N$40,000 to join his Party, but I refused ‘coz I was born and bred in Swapo,” he said. Watch this space as Rumazz tracks the credibility of his claims.
Beauty and brains?
Rumazz is disturbed by this former Miss Namibia who is alleged to have cheated on her business exams at one of the top institutions of higher learning in Namibia.
This former gem made headlines some time back, after she was stripped of her title for allegedly being married during her reign, which is against pageant rules.
But what was even more disturbing this time was that efforts to obtain evidence of her cheating were frustrated by one particular source, who wanted to make some quick cash for the evidence.
That is definitely a no go area for Rumazz as it is against media ethics to exchange information for money.
You are lucky this time around sista; otherwise, your cheating ways would have been exposed for all to read.
Sexiness and Sports?
What about the beautiful sister from our dear national television who likes strutting her talent around to sports fans and personalities whenever there is a crowd? She should have just stayed with the modelling business instead of using the NBC live television coverage of the crazy premiership football to sell herself.
Word is that some top ruling party officials have already started falling prey, while a certain Brave Warrior has already braved through. Rummaz has only attended two soccer games to confirm these antics.
The other day she was pretending to be helping herself to NBC headphones, which were not working yet she was said to be off-duty.
I hear our dear boxer refused the temptation already. Perhaps sex should be registered with the Sports Commission as a sport.
From rags to...well, rags
Infamous Windhoek based designer, affectionately known by a biblical name denoting the mother of Jesus, has hit hard times since her unceremonious eviction from the Windhoek West property of a local musician.
The woman has been sleeping on the streets for the past week, and has made several unsuccessful attempts to barge into the guesthouse of one of her multiple male associates in Windhoek West.
Rumazz would like to advise this designer to face reality, swallow her pride and take her place in an affordable lodging in Katutura.
