PDM's third Private Members Bill rejected

The National Assembly has rejected a third Private Members Bill in two weeks by Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) leader McHenry Venaani.

Lately, the official opposition leader has been tabling bills on various issues of national concern.

Yesterday's motion aims to recognise, promote, and protect the rights and interests of marginalised communities.

The Rights and Interests of Marginalised Communities' Private Member Bill is the third to be rejected by the majority MPs in the current session.

Two die in truck collision on Trans Kalahari Highway

Two truck drivers died and one other was injured in a multiple truck collision on the Trans Kalahari Highway in Botswana on Friday.

The Trans Kalahari Corridor Secretariat (TKCs), says five trucks have been involved in the road crash, caused by poor visibility as a result of a veld fire.

The TKCs confirm that two of the trucks are Namibian registered, while the other two are registered in Botswana.
