WINDHOEK - They may not necessarily have been between a rock and a hard place but hitherto they have been without a backbone to fall back on and a voice to represent their interests, being neither communal farmers in its strict sense nor fully fledged commercial farmers. WIDHOEK- Uetuuaneka Karumendu (Grade 8), Korokue Tjomuho (Grade 9), and Tujamee Tjinape (Grade 8), are the top performers of the Epukiro Junior Secondary School having obtained 43, 33 and 39 marks respectively in the August examinations. Is and has the land conference been on the right track and can it eventually produce the intended outcome and with the requisite input of all relevant stakeholders? WINDHOEK – Kaujeua, Muundjua, Katjiuongua, Shiimi, Kamburona, Geingos, Katangolo and Tjitjo. It would be a missed opportunity if Namibia cannot in all earnest chart a new path and a new beginning towards a radical transformation on the land question. OTJOMUISE- Mapemunika ayo imba mberi pombongarero yOtjiwana yEhi Oitjavari kaveire omugandjo otja rutenga tjaapetiriwa nungwari omakarero wawo pombongarero indji yatjiti kutja epu rehi rotjizeero rimune ombango ndjayenene nu ndjeripwire. WINDHOEK - Lessons of the Second National Land Conference must be a caution to land owners about the importance to share, said President Hage Geingob when closing the conference on Friday after five days of intense deliberations on issues related to land. The Second National Land Conference has come and gone. The foremost question among many is what it has attained. Put bluntly, was it a success or not? Yes and no, depending on which side of the land continuum you are. OTJOMUISE- Katjisupi operesidenda maitjivisa otjirata tjimatjitara mEhi rOtjizeero, otjo tjatjivisa nao Oritjatatu pombongarero yo Kambineta ndjatarere mozongutiro zOmbongarero yOtjiwana Oitjavari yEhi. WINDHOEK – These days Sussy Tjahuha Kanguatjivi peacefully goes to sleep. Not that he is without any money worries. The Second National Land Conference has come. And for sure some may say it is also now gone. Your columnist cannot but beg to differ with the posit that it has gone - with 63 resolutions having emerged out of it. OTJOMUISE-Ombongarero yOtjiwa¿a Oitjavari yEhi otjatjiyakapita nambano oruveze rwahoro o Namibia okusekerisa Ombongarero Onene yOtjiÞiro Otjindjandja. WINDHOEK- The characterisation and labelling of the land question as controversial and emotive, rightly or wrongly, continues to haunt it. One cannot but wonder whether there is sequel three regarding the Russian billionaire Rashid Sardarov’s much talked-about purchase of four farms in Namibia. OTJOMUISE- Eheya ndjitja epu rehi ezeu nemwatamwate, kutja riri nawa poo inde, rikawondja komurungu okuripa ongurunguse. While the country has still been reeling from the dark cloud of the slaying of a nine-year-old pupil, the wholeness of her body yet to be recovered, and the perpetrator(s) of the heinous crime still at large, yet another grisly inhumanity has been inflicted upon another and one of her innocent members with the mutilation and rape of yet another minor. A Jazzy mood is all over the capital in anticipation of one of the Mecca musical events of the year in Namibia, the Windhoek Jazz Festival tomorrow at the Independence Stadium in Olympia. “South African officials attempted to implement apartheid Bantustan policies in Hereroland by creating easily controlled chiefs or “traditional authorities. They attempted to achieve this by manipulating intra-Herero identity politics, promising water development to cooperative factions and denying it to the resistant majority.” WINDHOEK - A meeting of stakeholders in trade fairs and expos, horseracing and communal agricultural shows is being scheduled in Gobabis soon to harmonise these three events that lately have started to clash and/or compete against one another rather than complimenting one another in one way or another. “The economic order of Namibia shall be based on the principles of a mixed economy with the objective of securing economic growth, prosperity and a life of human dignity for all Namibians,” reads article 98 of the Namibian Constitution on the Principles of Economic Order.
