Quotes

...in 1989, and in this case the youth really try their best, says Beatrice Kotungondo, the Deputy Chairperson of the National Youth Council Board. "Our objective and focus was not on what will we get at the end of the day but to see if we stand together as one Namibian youth, and how can we change this situation ourselves. This was also to show our leaders that we are very serious with what we are doing" says Kotungondo
"You cannot instil moral values if you do not have moral values. Look at our absenteeism and our conduct on the streets and even our sexual relationships. Previously girls were raped but these days boys are also raped and some of our teachers are guilty of this . . . Wow!" she exclaimed. She also urged teachers to treat learners like human beings regardless of their ethnic background
