Prime Minister Nahas Angula confirmed yesterday that the President was hospitalised, but the Prime Minister maintained it was for an “annual routine medical checkup”. News of the President’s alleged ill health spread like wildfire on Wednesday night, with unconfirmed reports claiming that the Head of State was gravely ill. But Premier Angula said he was informed that the President was in hospital for his regular medical examination. “He went for his annual checkup. I am not aware that he has suffered from stroke, only medical people can confirm that,” said the Prime Minister, responding to a question on whether the President Maria had suffered Manjoro a stroke. selling ‘oshikundu’ to one of the sand Angula, who visited the First miners during a lunch break.

Those who have done so should be given notices so that they can vacate those plots,” said the councillor. According to him it is high time that the council starts to take action against those occupying land illegally within the town’s boundaries. Ndara believes that demarcating the vacant plots would deter potential land-grabbers from illegally occupying land belonging to the town council.
