The United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef), in partnership with the European Union (EU), have discouraged the Namibian authorities not to enforce cuts to the education budget as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Swapo Party Youth League yesterday denied claims that some of its leaders instigated a land grab in the Otjomuise area of Windhoek on Sunday. Deep-seated political divisions have, according to commentators, neutralised the once-powerful labour movement, saying it was now being used as a springboard for political office by local union leaders.
