Editor’s Note
ay Levinson, an American author once wrote, “In order to sell a product or a service, a company must establish a relationship with the consumer. It must buildtrust and rapport. It must understand the customers needs, and it must provide a 
product that delivers the promised benets.
 The Consumer News has been playing the watchdog role as the fourth estateto look into the relationship between consumers and retailers and at the same timeprotect and promote consumers rights.In this edition, we “spill the beans” as we introduce the Namibian Consumer 
Union, a collection of non-prot organizations, plus the Consumer News Magazine,
created to lobby for consumer rights. The Consumer Union does not receive donor funding and is Namibian based and all members are well known and respected in thenation.
 The group marks the rst time that all of the various consumer organizations andactivists have decided to work as one. This historic happening is signicant as it 
means that the groups will be speaking with one voice and requesting the Nation to
pass a comprehensive Consumer Protection Act for the benet of consumers. After 
23 years of independence, the Namibia Consumer Union feels that it is unacceptablethat consumer rights have still not been enshrined into law.Our regular columns continue to inspire and provoke consumers’ minds to critically examine the possible options before engaging into any transaction with vendors or retailers.Let me also take this opportunity to wish all our stakeholders and consumers a safe journey and remarkable experience as all roads are leading to the Oshakati for theOngwediva Trade Fare.Until we meet again, enjoy your reading….
