Discontent evident as Namibians head to poll

High unemployment and SWAPO-led government's failure to address land redistribution have left the young frustrated.

    Namibians are heading to the polls on Friday to vote in presidential and parliamentary elections. The vote is expected to extend the governing SWAPO party's 24-year-rule. But there is growing discontent among young voters, frustrated at the country's high unemployment rate and the government's failure to address land redistribution after apartheid.
