Interesting observations about Namibia


I want to comment on issues related to Statistics and Databases being administered by foreigners as it seem that they use methods not relevant to our country. e.g. using a method of collecting data of unemployed youth needing financial assistance under the said title, might not be relevant in an Agricultural means of survival. Those said group might be financially sustainable due to income generated from their produce even when the market might be undermined by most foreigners. Herds of cattle feeds many and a figure estimating how many people can survive from it will be of no relevance. Please encourage Namibians to be involved in rendering such services; as some issues need country's history to reflect a reliable statistical representation.
