NDF plans to enhance training of soldiers to ensure combat readiness


The Minister of Defence and Veterans Affairs, Frans Kapofi, has called on the defence forces to step up training and remain combat-ready at all times.
He made these remarks during a reception parade for the Namibian contingent to Mozambique at Hanganee Katjipuka Barracks in Windhoek on Friday.

While applauding the contingent, Kapofi urged all members of the defence forces to emulate the fighting spirit shown by NDF pioneers, who had previously succeeded in executing external missions against well-established enemy forces. 

Schools celebrate World Earth Day


At least 30 schools in Windhoek celebrated World Earth Day with a call to action to protect the environment and the world.

The celebration of Earth Day holds significance as Namibia is known for its unique ecosystems.

This year, the day was celebrated under the theme Planet vs. Plastics.

Enviromentalist Fransina Kalumbu pointed out the importance of acknowledging environmental issues and promoting sustainable practices.

Lack of employment sparks creativity


Lack of job opportunities and economic hardships motivate Namibians to use their creativity and start businesses on the streets of Windhoek.
