Namibian civil servants are threatening to strike following a deadlock in negotiations, saying it is currently more than five years since civil servants received an increase. Despite government having agreed to increase allowances such as housing and transport, which is estimated to cost an additional 335 million Namibian dollars a year, secretary general of The Trade Union Congress of Namibia, Mahongora Kavihuha, says the strike can be expected shortly after schools reopen on Monday.
