Nihaike muunda utisa butata mwasikiliti sa Zambezi, buñata bwa bayahi, sihulu mandui, ba unga kuba nako yende ya kuyamba. Muunda utaha nako yeo kuhanisa kuyamba neku liuluzwi la 1 Liatamanyi 2023, kasamulaho akukwala la 1 Ñulule 2022 kulumelela litapi kuzwala. Kukwaliwa kwa bundui neku imela hamoho cwalo ni basali babalekisa litapi mwa musika.

Instead of waiting for a monthly salary often insufficient for one’s needs, a young single mother based in Katima Mulilo took the bull by its horns and started selling fresh and dried beef, which currently earns her a handsome monthly profit. Some officers of the Namibian Police’s Water Wing have raised concerns about not getting a danger allowance, like their colleagues in other units such as the Special Reserve Force. The Zambezi regional disaster risk management has called on relevant sectors to provide urgent humanitarian aid in the form of tents, food items, mattresses, life jackets, boat engines and fuel, snake repellents, mobile clinics, mosquito nets, as well as disinfectants for toilets and pit latrines. The Electoral Commission of Namibia is in need of 1 500 vehicles to successfully conduct the 2024 general registration of voters as well as Presidential and National Assembly Elections, a situation that has left the commission with no option but to approach private vehicle owners to fill the existing gap.

National Council Swapo member John Likando has asked for more funding to address living conditions in military bases across the country. Although the government has structures in place to raise awareness, provide education and give a voice to vulnerable communities, the San-speaking community living in the Bwabwata National Park feels forgotten on many social, educational, and economic benefits. Nihaike mubuso uyahile miyaho kubabaza, kufa tuto ni kutahisa kemelo kwa sicaba sesipila mwa sibaka sa pabalelo ya lifolofolo sa Bwabwata. Membala wa kopano ya Swapo wandu ya milao ya bubeli John Likando, ukupile kuli masheleñi amañata asuliwe kuli mayemo maswe mwalikambe za sisole mwanaha kaufela atatululwe. Particularly, Likando wants the government to provide the people with reliable and safe means of transportation after frequent casualties on the waterways in the region.
