Budget Debate Continues – RDP Questions Spending

[New Era]Windhoek -During continued debate on the national budget last week, Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) Member of Parliament, Heiko Lucks, again questioned the fact that no provision was made for an increase in old-age pensions in the 2014 budget. “An increase only every second year will continue to increase the destitution of our senior citizens as prices of basic goods and services needed to lead a decent and worthy life are increasing much more regularly than every two years,” said Lucks.
