The absence of opposition party parliamentarians in the National Assembly has resulted in a short session this afternoon - with some MPs suggesting that the house goes on recess right away.
During the last two weeks, the National Assembly was marred by negative pictures of opposition party members unceremoniously walking out and staging a complete boycott.
In today' sitting, some opposition members could be seen in the house, some all smile and others very serious. 

They appeared briefly in the house before again disappearing.

The three motions sponsored by opposition parties in the legislative chamber could therefore not be attended to.

Dr Tangeni Ijambo of Swanu was set to have replied to a motion on the relevance of inherited, yet detrimental post-colonial Roman Dutch Laws. 

Vipuakuje Muharukua was to address another motion, calling for 40 percent subsidies to crop farmers in the Omusati and part of Oshana regions.

Another PDM member Maximilliant Katjimune was due to give a reply to his motion which calls for the merging of various youth agencies under a single body.

The house considered the Road Fund Administration Bill while a motion by Home Affairs, Immigration, Safety and Security Deputy, Daniel Kashikola was deferred on his request.
