What is wrong with these people? Are they afraid of fire too? How did we ever get out of the stone age with such backward thinking?

I agree with Martin, I am a white, Namibian guy and I find this bill to be highly offensive as well as being against my rights as a citizen. This "Spy Bill" will affect everything. Who will trust internet banking when page encryption is forbidden. How will I know a private conversation between myself and my wife wont be listened to or even worse a hacker gets loose on a encryption free environment. I swear if my country goes down any further I will leave the country for good.
Which makes me sad because I love my homeland and don't really want to leave.

What!!!!
I am a student at the polytechnic of namibia and i find this very disturbing.
What ever happened to the right of privacy? Its sad to see that we Leave in a "free" country where our rights are being voilated as citizens.
Who ever is against this, SPEAK OUT AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD.......
