There is a feast of reading, competitions and prizes to win in this month’s edition.Being Namibia’s only independent consumer-affairs magazine, we investigate issuesthat affect consumers and which help them to make informed decisions in their day today spending life. This issue is packed with valuable information and expert opinionsfor the Namibian consumer. We examine the operations of the UKCG Church, whichsomehow seems to defy the core ethics of Christianity. We also look at customer service and counterfeit goods sold at ‘China town’ and investigate whether consumer rights are being infringed in any way. Our entertainment section visits the Himbafashion show held at the FNCC; how more local can we be? Many Namibian citizens
and children lack birth certicates and Consumer News looks at items to be checked
off when completing birth registry forms. Consumer News is establishing itself asan esteemed monthly publication and much-needed article contributions from other consumer-awareness organisations and individuals make for an interesting and infor-mative read. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our partners, NamibiaConsumer Protection Group, Namibia Customer Service Institute, Namibian StandardsInstitute and the Namibian Consumer Lobby for their continued support. We encourageyou to join and support these organisations as their efforts pay dividends for the rest of us. Please be sure to check out our website or Facebook group for even more featuresand exclusive web content at www.consumernewsnamibia.com. Thanks to everyone for the fantastic support and feedback. Your feedback propels us to excellence.Please email me at salome@consumernewsnamibia.com or send us your message toinfo@consumernewsnamibia.comUntil next month, happy reading!Salome
