National Council goes on recess


The 11th session of the 6th National Council went into recess today and will resume on April 8th this year.

Vice Chairperson of the National Council, Victoria Kauma, commended MPs for demonstrating unity, resilience, and the spirit of collaboration, despite grieving for the late President Hage Geingob. 

The Vehicle Mass Bill and High Court Amendment Bill of 2023 have been passed and referred to in terms of Article 75 to the National Assembly, and Kauma has thus commended MPs for their tireless effort and unwavering commitment to the service of Namibian citizens.

Amarok Club Namibia donates to mother of five


The Amarok Club Namibia has come to the aid of a destitute mother of five in Sauyenwa, an informal settlement west of Rundu.

Siyapa Maria Mayanga and her children used to sleep in a structure made of plastic and old corrugated iron sheets.

Mayanga can only buy food for her children by collecting bottles to sell, and she sometimes has to beg.

The Amarok Club came to her aid, constructing a corrugated iron house worth N$15,000 for them.

Mayanga takes care of three of her children, while the other two live with their father's family.
