Namibian Gov Splurges on Officials!
« on: November 19, 2015, 11:54:59 AM »
We had hoped that we had elected a government that would make Namibia a shining light in Africa...

Initially it looked promising.....

Then the money started to run out.....so the Government is trying to introduce a solidarity tax, the people are in uproar, government insists that this be the way to decrease the gap between the have's and have not's....

the debate rages daily in Namibia......

then today we wake up to the following news in a National Paper....

Quote
PRESIDENT Hage Geingob has increased political office bearers' water and electricity allowances in a move that will see politicians getting raises as high as 2 800% on their utilities allowances in a space of three years.
Documents seen by The Namibian show that Geingob approved a recommendation that will see politicians hit the jackpot with their water and electricity allowances, which will jump up 29 times in some cases.

The increases took effect this month. The President, vice president, Prime Minister and deputy prime minister will not get the increase because government fully pays for their utility bills.
