WOLVES captain Connor Coady said he is praying teammate Raul Jimenez will make a full recovery after the Mexican was taken to hospital with a head injury during his side's 2-1 win at Arsenal on Sunday.
Landless People's Movement local authority council candidate at Walvis Bay Kariné Campbell wants the town to flourish independently of fishing quota deals.
She says the town's reliance on the fishing industry should not continue to determine the living conditions of Walvis Bay's people.
“If the LPM steps into council for the next few years, we will put into place new policies that will provide solutions to our people to become more self-reliant by building a fair local economy,” she says.
Campbell, who is a graphic designer and artist, says once elected to council her party will see to it that resolutions are passed that will ensure employment creation and a lasting solution to housing issues.
“We will push for housing. Not only for the families, but also the single working Namibian who only seeks a big enough roof to protect themselves, their food and their assets. Council will educate itself on Walvis Bay's local needs - first to find solutions for our electricity and water problems by looking at our renewable resources here.
"I . . . will not waiver in coming up with feasible goals to put the people back in power," she says.
