Namib Naukluft Quarry Continues Operating Amid Damning Allegations Lavrenty Repin On 29 May this year, investigators working for the Ministry of Environment and Tourism submitted a report, of which a copy is in possession of the Namib Independent, on an illegal quarry mine run by Namibia Constructions Pty (Ltd) in the Namib Naukluft National Conservation Park.

According to the extensive report, the quarry was first opened in 1980 and was a government project to accommodate the construction of the Walvis Bay – Rooikop road. In 1993 Herma Brothers (Pty) Ltd came into agreement through a letter (also in possession of the Namib Independent) with the then Ministry of Wildlife, Conservation and Tourism to mine within the National Park on the condition that the state would receive royalties of N$1.00 per cubic meter and that all park regulations were adhered to.

At present Namibia Construction has taken over all operation at the large quarry, although their full involvement in the quarry is uncertain, while Herma Brothers (Pty) Ltd is currently dormant. According to the report an estimated profit of N$90 Million is reported by the investigators and yet not a single cent was paid to the state, as per the original agreement. One of the directors of Namibia Constructions, Mr K H Shultz, told the Namib Independent that Namibia Constructions (Pty) Ltd is mining on behalf of Herma Brothers (Pty) Ltd. However, according to a letter, a copy of which is also in possession of the Namib Independent, signed by director Mr H P Shultz in 1999, references to a change of ownership from Herma Brothers to Namibia Constructions.

Ro-Ro Yo-Yos Dorcas Mhungu According to industry insiders, car imports - the fastest growing cargo segment at the Walvis Bay Port - are plummeting following the introduction of additional charges for goods coming packed in the imported vehicles.

Earlier this year Namport introduced additional charges for goods that are transported inside imported vehicles, which many importers have claimed to have tripled their costs, making the entire exercise too costly to continue. Continued on Page 3

Namib Naukluft Quarry Continues Operating Amid Damning Allegations Continued from Page 1

The report claims that this letter is forged and was used by Namibia Constructions to mislead the explosion division to get access to buy explosives that they allegedly used at the quarry. Furthermore, the quarry is allegedly operating without an Environmental Clearance Certificate, mandatory for all mining operations. This clearance is necessary as it assesses the damage, which the quarry may have on the environment. Mr Shultz said that they have applied for the Certificate, but the Ministry

Ro-Ro Yo-Yos Continued from Page 1

has apparently halted its approval as it continues the investigation. Mr Colgar Sikopo, Director of Parks and Regional Services at the Minisry of Enviroment and Tourism, confirmed that an investigation was on-going but could not comment further. Mr Shultz mentioned that they “are hoping for negotiations (with the Ministry)” but haven’t been officially approached as of yet. When asked if Namib Construction has a Claim or Mining License Mr Shultz

A business insider recently said that over the past two months the number of vehicles coming through Walvis Bay had dropped by around 40 percent. The leading importers of second-hand vehicles (mainly from the UK) through the port, Zambia and Zimbabwe, are said to be favouring the Port of Durban while other countries are opting for Mozambique and Tanzania as viable alternatives. Liz Sibindi, Corporate Communications Manager at Namport,

claimed to have “what the law says”. Commissioner Shivolo of the Ministry of Mines and Energy said he was aware of the matter but left no comment. At this moment it is still

said it appeared that during March following the announcement, imports of second-hand vehicles did drop, but that after clarification of the additional charges to the industry players, these figures saw an upturn again in April this year. The import figures have however normalised since April and are reflective of the month running up to the announcement. However, industry insiders continue to argue that the downward trend is ongoing and that if the matter persists

unclear who the real owners of the quarry are, how Namibia Construction came into running it and, if the allegations hold, how this went unnoticed for the better part of the last ten years.

many clearing agents that had opened up in Walvis Bay to capitalise on the growth of the sector over the last few years would be the first ones to feel the pinch. The boom over recent years in car imports coupled with stringent clearing procedures have also presented additional challenges to the Walvis Bay Municipality. Kevin Adams, Manager Public Relations & Customer Service at the Municipality of Walvis Bay, said it is now difficult to ensure that the imported cars leave

town within the specified time because most clearing agents have offices in town although it is mandatory for them to provide proof of stock yards in the industrial area. “Although agents maintain that the vehicles are driven out of town as soon as they are cleared, this does not always appear to be the case. This creates a problem as there are not enough public toilets and parking space and the drivers often wash and service the vehicles in the street,” Adams said.

Erongo Fishing Donates Over 1.4 Million Cans of Fish for Drought Relief Tanya Calitz Erongo Fishing Enterprises donated 60 302 cartons of canned fish, which will be delivered to people suffering from the drought crisis that hit Namibia this year. The donation ceremony was hosted at Etosha Fishing premises

on Tuesday, with special guests, Minister of Fisheries, Bernard Esau; new Managing Director of Erongo Fishing Enterprises, Muetulamba Shingenge Haipinge; and Erongo Region Governor Cleophas Mutjavikua. Fisheries Minister, Bernard Esau, allocated 4 300 tons of quota to Erongo

Fishing Enterprises for the sole purpose of using the profits from that catch to buy canned fish and sending it to the people affected by the terrible drought. The Minister loaded the last pallet of canned pilchards onto the first truck at the donation ceremony on Tuesday. “Management must ensure that this product reaches the people it was intended for. Our people are starving, and therefore we must safeguard the delivery of the fish to the vulnerable,” Esau said. “Once we caught the Horse Mackerel quota, it was sold and the profit from the catch was used to buy Lucky Star canned fish from Etosha Fishing,” said Erongo Fishing Enterprises’ General Manager, Mr Calie Jacobs. According to Jacobs, just to give one an idea of the load size, a total of 22 trucks will make its way to the areas affected to deliver the 62 300 cartons of fish.

Obeco, one of Namibia’s leading brands as a specialist company in tiles, sanitary ware and plumbing services to the trade sector opened doors in Walvis Bays Town Centre on Friday evening. Speaking at the launch event for the trade, National Sales Director, Mr Stephan Gradtke expressed his delight at the prospects facing the newly furbished Walvis Bay showroom. “Walvis Bay and indeed the coast is currently undergoing a massive growth phase in so many sectors which creates significant potential in the building market, which we are a part of" he said. Obeco stock leading international product ranges across the board, and they are keen to introduce these to the local market. "We are here to support the local industry and architects by helping them offer greater solutions to help their client’s ideas and creativity become reality,” explained Gradtke. Originally established in 1964 in Windhoek Obeco is no stranger to the coast as it also has a branch in Winter Street, Swakopmund. “Walvis Bay developers, builders architects, interior designers and even retail customers are now able to benefit from the company's highly specialised service and technical advice to our clients, which remains our key factor in the company’s ongoing success,” said Gradtke.

15 Litres Free Water Per Person Per Day

Dorcas Mhungu The Municipality of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay are aware of plans to provide subsidised water to needing households but as of yet no directives or guidelines have been received from the Ministry of Regional & Local Government, Housing and Rural Development. A spokesperson in the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, Tomas Ukola, explained the subsidy scheme is intended for poor households, in all urban and rural areas. Each person resident in qualifying households will be allocated 15 litres per day, irrespective

of age. “In terms of compliance, it is premature for us to outline the specifics of how local authorities will ensure compliance, but certainly, thorough measures for compliance will be collectively developed in due course,” Ukola said. C o m m e n d i n g Government for finally putting to action an initiative that the Association of Local Autorities (ALAN) has been lobbying for, acting CEO Kambala said local authorities will take a leading role in identifying households really in need of the subsidised water, a task she says is difficult. “We also expect

that through the existing instruments like the TIPEEG and the upcoming Mass Housing Initiative Government will provide capital project funding to upgrade bulk service infrastructure in local authorities,” Kambala added. Commenting on how the Association will ensure the program is carried out successfully, Kambala said ALAN has regular learning and exchange forums. Use is also made of the line ministry and they are working very closely with the association of municipal professionals (NALAO – Namibian Association of Local Authority Officials), which supports ALAN at technical level and provides technical information to raise advocacy issues. Arandis Town Council CEO Florida Husselman said, as far as the numbers of beneficiaries are concerned, the Council will be doing a thorough screening exercise in order to ensure that those that are in real need are the ones that will benefit from this subsidy. “We are anticipating a figure of about 120 people that will benefit from this initiative,” she told Namib Independent.

Extraordinary Zapp Family drove from Argentina to Coast in their 1928 Car

Tanya Calitz The astonishing Zapp family has been travelling the world for the past 13 years in a very unique style, growing their family as they track the globe. Herman and Candelaria Zapp embarked on their journey 13 years ago as a childless couple, thinking it would last only 6 months. Since then, they have had four children and travelled to over 40 countries. This unique pair laid eyes upon each other for the first time when Candelaria was 8 and Herman 10 years old. “We started out as best friends and used to page through books and magazines discussing all the places we would travel to one day,” Candelaria told the Namib Independent in the kitchen of their host family, the Dreyers in Walvis Bay. They became an official couple in their early teens and later on got married. “The

initial idea was to backpack from Argentina to Alaska for 6 months, but it ended up taking us nearly 4 years,” Herman said. The travellers started running out of money before even reaching the United States of America and had to find a way to make some money to continue their journey. “I discovered that I had a talent for painting and Herman for making frames, so we would sell our framed artwork wherever we’d go,” said Candelaria. During their pilgrimage Candelaria fell pregnant and gave birth to their first child, Pampa, in North Carolina. Once they reached their destination Alaska, both Candelaria and Herman soon felt very depressed and decided that the journey had actually just begun. They went back to Argentina and wrote their first book, Dream Chaser, which made the best sellers’ list on International Book

Fair of Costa Rica. Since then they have also written another best seller, Spark Your Dream, which along with human generosity has funded their trip around the globe. After returning to Argentina, the Zapp’s welcomed the second child, Tehue. Their third child and only girl, Paloma, was born in Canada, and the fourth and last child, Wallaby, was born in Australia. In the past 13 years the Zapp’s have travelled South America, Central America, Australia, South East Asia, New Zeeland, North America, South Korea, Canada and China. Their present mission is to cover the African continent, and currently they have come as far as Walvis Bay, Namibia. “We are loving Africa so far. Our aim was to be in South Africa for only 2 months, but we ended up travelling there for 11 months, before we entered Namibia a few weeks back. We had a lovely long

and unexpected stay with a family in Sossusvlei, and by the looks of it we will surely be in Namibia for longer than intended,” said Herman. When asked which country stood out for them the most, he closed his eyes and thought for a moment. “When I close my eyes and think back on all our adventures and experiences, all I see are people, not countries. I cannot single out one single country, only experiences,” Herman said. According to Candelaria, 90% of the time they stayed with families on their journeys. “We are continuously surprised by the generosity and good nature of people. We have met the most amazing, helpful people on our journeys,” she said. The Zapp’s plan to go to Botswana next in their 1928 Graham-Paige car, which they bought for $4 000 dollars before embarking on their first journey from Argentina.

“Piece of Cloth” The Cause of Woermann & Brock Bakery Fire

Single Chinese Company in Line For N$3 Billion Namport Tender Staff Reporter On Monday Namibia Ports Authority (Namport) officially announced in a press statement that China Harbour Engineering Company Ltd. (CHEC) is the only company that has reached the final Financing Evaluation stage of the over N$3 billion tender for the construction of the new container terminal on reclaimed land in Walvis Bay. Chief Executive Officer Bisey /Uirab said the formal opening of the commercial envelope of single tenderer, CHEC, was done on Friday, 16 August at Namport Head Office in Walvis Bay in the presence of companies that had reached and passed the Technical Evaluation section. The statement said seven

Belgium.) /Uirab said the next section of the tender evaluation process (commercial and financing) is now underway. The new and modern terminal will be built on 40 hectares of land reclaimed from the sea. The expansion project is one of Namport’s mega projects and the new terminal will add 600m of quay length to the existing 1500m and 650 000 Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) to the existing 350 000. TEU is the standard unit for describing a ship's cargo carrying capacity, or a shipping terminal's cargo handling capacity. The new terminal will also create additional capacity for all port operations to cope with the increase in cargo coming through.

companies had presented formal bids by the deadline in February this year but one of them, RMB Consortium made up of various financial institutions (First National Bank Namibia, Rand Merchant Bank Namibia, Standard Bank Namibia, Rand Merchant Bank and Standard Bank South Africa) was not a compliant tender.

Mr Forbs praised the swift response of the fire brigade, who he says “arrived within minutes of being called” and the well-trained security guards on duty who immediately used the fireextinguishers at the bakery to subdue the flames.

Alcohol Primary Cause of Social

Ills on Coast

Dorcas Mhungu On Saturday, the Swapo Party Youth League Saturday brought together members of the community, civic leaders and industry executives to brainstorm and propose tangible solutions to the social rot driving youths to commit crime in Erongo region. The meeting was held at the Kuisebmond Municipal Chambers. Cde Laina Shipange, Erongo Regional Secretary for Swapo Party Youth League (SPYL) said the objective of the meeting is to cultivate synergy among the Erongo region leadership in order to tackle the social evils that have become a thorn in the flesh for the communities. Contributors to the deliberations tended to agree that society is to blame for creating environments that have fuelled crime perpetrated by youths on youth. “We called for this meeting to develop knowledge and understanding of the crime rampant in the region in order to assist the law enforcement agents to handle the social menace more effectively,” said Shipange. Regional councilor of the urban constituency Walvis Bay and Chairperson of Erongo Regional Council Hafeni Ndemula attributed the cause of crimes to upbringing, exposure and other circumstances that prompt the execution of criminal activities. He said it is painful to see children who should be studying, patronising shebeens late at night. “A lot needs to be done to have a crime-free Erongo region and this is only achievable if evil elements are removed from the society.” Hamufeni lambasted parents who leave children unattended at home, preferring to drink at the shebeens until early morning hours. He said laws and regulations that deter commission of crime must be implemented and enforced to yield positive results and enforcement agents must not be lenient.

Reiterating Hamufeni, Cde Philip Heita, Swapo Regional Coordinator, said his biggest concern is alcohol and drug abuse by the youth in Namibia. He said in the high density areas, children are still out on the streets late at night enjoying themselves and roaming around holding liquor bottles and yet the law does not allow them to do it. “We as parents are the ones also sending the children to buy liquor for us. Comrades, I have a problem with shebeens in the community. Shebeens run in the houses. Our children are growing up with this mentality of selling alcohol even at home and they are not having time to study. My question is why this is only happening in Kuisebmond but if you go to residential areas in town you do not find the same thing happening there? In the town residential areas it is quiet but always on Fridays you see trucks delivering loads of beer and punya punyas (wines) to the locations and Kuisebmond, to do what?" Heita asked. “Their parents were there, near them, but in the shebeens and they allow them to go out with their friends and kiss one another. We parents buy cell phones for our children under 16. Our children now cook with the headphones on. I said no to my daughter and told her that she had to first make food without the phone. Children eat while chatting on the phone and under our nose tell their lovers that, "now I have given my father and my mother some food then after ten minutes I will sneak out". The reality is we are not controlling our children,” he said. He urged for stricter controls in the issuing of licences, adding that if the situation is not controlled there will be no future leaders for Namibia. “Tomorrow the imperialist will come back to this country if we are not vigilant. Namibia is independent now and we are now fighting for economic independence and the future of this country is in the hands of

our children. If we do not prepare them to take over from us the reigns of leadership, the imperialist will come back and take over this country. This a serious matter.” The Mayor of Walvis Bay, councillor Uilika Nambahu attributed baby dumping cases to men because they are not taking responsibilities for the girls they impregnate. “Imagine carrying the baby for nine months and getting no answer. The evil act is already engineered in the mind at the thought of rejection. When the woman is over-powered by the evil thought she aborts the pregnancy,” the Mayor said without mincing her words. She said such psychological trauma creates fertile ground for drug and alcohol abuse as children fail to cope with stress brought by circumstances that they find themselves in and hence the problems society now faces. School teacher Saidu Garbs blamed the modern parents who are lenient and do not question children when they bring home expensive gadgets. He regretted the disappearance of cultural norms and values over the years fuelled by lack of religious studies in schools. “Parents of today are copying and pasting European lifestyles and hence the lack of respect for elders," Garbs said. He attributed the passion killings to today’s relationships that are based on and founded on material possessions. Chief Inspector Muhita urged Government to review sentences which he said are too low and not deterrent. He also said cases of domestic violence are on the rise in Erongo region. Muhita said it was encouraging that men are coming out of their shells to report abuse by women in the homes. Although the youth league coordinated the meeting, the organisers called on all leaders irrespective of political affiliation and religion to come forward and get involved in finding the solutions to the worrisome criminal activities.

Blood Sport - Dog Fighting in Spotlight Again practice of dog fighting for profits has once again reared its ugly head in Narraville, Walvis Bay. After being out of the public eye According to the SPCA the practice continues for some time now, the inhumane to plague the coastal town. The Namib Independent was recently approached by a local resident, who has alleged that dog-fighting for profit is still being practiced on a regular basis. “A work colleague noticed an image on my computer, which is a photo of a lovely pit-bull terrier and made enquiries to adopt such a dog. I thought he was looking to adopt such a dog with the promise of giving it a good home. A while later he started to make references to some people in Narraville that invite (on a weekly basis) residents who own pit-bulls or similar dogs to engage in dog fighting with gambling rewards for winners and proclaimed he was interested. At Madelaine Laubscher


this stage I refrained from taking the conversation any further,” said the beleaguered woman. With every intention of collating enough physical evidence of the activity the woman elected to mislead her colleague into thinking that she was seeking to partake in the upcoming events. “I really wanted

the opportunity to be invited to a fight so that I could know exactly what was happening and ensure that an arrest could be made, but he was not taking the bait and became very suspicious of me from then on,” said the woman. In an interview with the local branch of the SPCA, they confirmed

Desalination Plant to Benefit the Coast Lavrenty Repin

Last week Wednesday, the Desalination Plant located between Swakopmund and Henties Bay officially opened. Its aim is to provide water to the Erongo Region, solving the looming water shortage within the area. The plant will begin its operation by providing water to Swakop Uranium’s Husab mine, Langer

Heinrich and Rossing mine, but by the end of the year it will hopefully be able to supply water to the coastal towns, too. An interim water supply agreement between NamWater, AREVA and Swakop Uranium is the first of a series of contracts that will allow the desalination plant to greatly contribute to the coastal towns’ water supply. By next year, the desalination plant will be capable

of producing up to 10Mm³ of potable water, almost the same amount that NamWater currently produces in the region. “Water is a very scarce resource in Namibia, and as investors in this beautiful country, SU are proud to be able to assist in alleviating any shortages in this resource and thus improving the quality of life of the people in this region” said Swakop Uranium CEO Zheng Keping.

What about teaching the children about different cultures and traditions so that they can understand and learn about each other? How about teaching the Constitution in schools?

problem in our country and focus more on subsistence farming to sustain their families instead of robbing and thieving from tourists and tax-payers. If Namibia wants the world's attention and more investors then surely stability should be its aim. Peace in any country is attractive to anyone. I am probably a day-dreamer but politicians aren't taking to the streets and aren't contributing to the whole of the population, they are just taking care of their personal and immediate needs without any future (long-term) goals in sight that can benefit the whole country.

Literacy Trust Gives the Haven N$43 200 Tanya Calitz The Namibian Literacy Trust (NLT) provided The Haven in Walvis Bay with a generous piece of their Development Fund. This should help the domestic training centre to move forward. The Haven is a training institution for domestic workers, which has been running on the coast for some time. The team has in the past two years worked very hard to get more credibility for their institution by getting it registered as a training centre through the Namibian Training Authority (NTA). “Currently we are in the final phase of getting the institution registered as a training provider for domestic workers. We have employed an Admin Consultant to bring all our training procedures and policies together to comply with the NTA’s criteria for our final audit in becoming a registered training institution,” The Haven

Manager, Gillian Van Lingen, explained. According to Van Lingen NLT is the first major development partner to come on-board. The funds donated by them is exactly what The Haven needed to push this project forward. “By receiving this money we can now employ a full time trainer to teach subjects such as domestic science, cleaning, cooking, nutrition, office cleaning and nanny training,” she described. “We believe that The Haven is doing a great job in improving people lives in this community and on top of that, they are protecting their students in terms of employment benefits within their contract. Domestic workers are normally the most overlooked employees and The Haven makes everyone realise that they are as important as any other occupation. It is a good platform to make people know that domestic work is a profession,” said

Namibian Literacy Trust Project Manager, Nanguloshi Hamwaalwa. According to Hamwaalwa, Walvis Bay is fortunate to have such an opportunity thanks to the most hard working Project Coordinator, Gillian Van Lingen. “The whole community should put their hands together to fight illiteracy in the country. With adults we can only do it with work place literacy and functional literacy through CBOs (Community Based Organisations) and civil societies. These are the people that work at the grassroots level,” she said. NLT is assisting Michelle Training Centre in Kuisebmund, who offer classes in English, Afrikaans, Computer Literacy, Tailoring and Sewing. NLT also supports the inmates of Walvis Bay Prison, who receive stationary in their literacy programmes. “We have now entered a new period of growth and also expanded our training

facility at our headquarters in Hage Geingob Street,” Van Lingen said very eagerly and motivated by the progress and growth. Once

the Haven is registered and recognised as an accredite Training Provider, they will be the first of its kind in all of Namibia.

Swakopmund Artist Creations Seen From Space Lavrenty Repin Imke Rust, a Swakopmund artist, was surprised to find that her 2012 environmental art project Salt-Circles, part of the “Infinite Scream” collection, is large enough to be seen from Google Earth’s satellite and incidentally from the outreaches of space. It is a project that was produced as an environment-protective symbol, consisting of six perfect, lonely circles of varying size made out of salt, located somewhere in the barren desert of the Namibian coastline. “circles symbolise harmony and the divine, and the six concentric circles should remind of the ripple effect that makes the energy move outward,” says Imke. “Salt has always been attributed for its protective and healing powers.” Imke insists that she

wasn’t wholly concerned with who would see the project, which was her secondary motive. Primarily the project was about the intentions behind it. “So it was a big and happy surprise when I realised that Google had updated their images and my work is so clearly visible.” Imke isn’t really sure whether she’ll make another salt-circle project. As an artist she works from her heart and her desires at any given moment, which is one of the reasons for why her work maintains its authenticity. However, she may change her mind and continue in the salt-circle direction– the possibilities are endless. Her message is simple and honest: “We all can make a difference and we all leave traces through our actions and choices. Be conscious of that and make your life and energy count for what you believe in.

Somebody will witness the traces you leave.” As an avid activist for the preservation of our natural environment, Imke believes that everyone can make a little change. She mentions that doing nothing at all can make you feel useless and helpless, even if you don’t notice it at the time - but it is possible to change the world one step a time and that is exactly what she’s doing. Imke admits she hopes for the salt-circles to be more than just symbolic, she’d like to see if the old shamans and healers and myths maybe had some truth to it and that the intentions and energy set in this artwork will somehow really be a spiritual blessing and protection. “I guess that I will unfortunately never have a definite answer to that.”

Imke Rust is currently in Germany, working on a 45 minute documentary film about the whole coastal land art project and is absolutely excited about the film that will include a behind-thescenes look into her art projects. “I hope that the film will once again make people aware of the problems, but also that it will be interesting for people to see how I come up with my ideas,” Imke explains. She hopes to screen it in Swakopmund at the end of the year. Until then her art and the saltcircle are her weapon against the contamination and destruction of Namibia’s fragile eco-system, but ironically the salt-circles themselves are slowly dissolving, destroyed by the environment they set out to protect.

Swakop Uranium Sponsorship

to Union under Spotlight Tanya Calitz A recent press release extoling the virtues of a sponsorship / donation by Swakop Uranium to the Mine Workers Union of Namibia (MUN) could have left the company with egg on its face. If the donation is viewed in a broader context of a recently negotiated settlement between the two parties, it all seems rather dodgy. A while ago the company

released a press release stating that they had reached an agreement with the Mine Workers Union on wage negotiations, would will bring the 7% increase into effect from 1 July. According to Percy McCallum, Swakop Uranium’s Director of Human Resources, the negotiations with the employee representatives and the MUN were conducted in good spirit. Conversely, eyebrows were

raised as the company made public that is had donated N$23 000 to the same union the very week later, and members of the press raised questions as to the legitimacy of the negotiating process. In a statement made by MUN to a national newspaper, when queried about the authenticity of the donation, MUN President Ismael Kasuto denied that the donation could be constituted as a bribe; saying that the Union was guided by principles that could not be compromised. The perception of a bribe is magnified, though, against a backdrop where Swakop Uranium has had accusations of ill treatment of its employees levelled against them before. The Namib Independent approached Swakop Uranium asking whether they agree that by making such a donation to a union that has been created specifically to ensure the fair treatment of its members, Swakop Uranium is opening itself up to scrutiny and criticism. Grant Marais, Swakop Uranium’s Director of Communication and Stakeholder Relations, acknowledged the fact that they provided financial assistance for a capacity workshop for the union’s shop stewards. “The intention of the sponsorship was to support the development of the union’s shop stewards, which is aligned with Swakop Uranium’s Human Resources Strategy to support the education of Namibians across the board,” Marais stated. Marais also said that the donation to MUN should be seen in a ‘positive light’. However, the donation does seem somewhat contrary to fairness and to maintaining the Unions’ ability to act entirely impartially.

Vuurwerke Spat

by Sarah se Gat

Madelaine Laubscher Die gewilde kuierplek, Sarah se Gat was Saterdag aand omtrent in rep en roer toe 'n groep mans vuurwerke buite die baie bekende en gewilde kroeg skiet. Volgens ‘n ooggetuie was die mans behoorlik opgewerk en onder die invloed toe hulle die klappers en vuurwerke laat afgaan. “Hulle het dalk gedink dit is een groot grap, maar ons het definitief nie so gedink nie.

Dit wat hulle gedoen het was uiters gevaarlik,” sê die ooggetuie. Die ooggetuie beweer dat die eieneaar gevra het dat die mans hulle streke moet laat staan, maar dit het hulle net verdere motivering gegee, om ‘n laaste paar klappers by die kroeg integooi. Een van die klappers het 'n kroegdames teen die been getref en gebrand. “Die mans het wel klappers by die kroeg ingegooi, maar so ver ek weet het sy nie seergekry nie,” sê bestuurder Grant Boulle. “Ek voel net dat sulke gedrag nie aanvaarbaar is nie, en dat dit die reputasie van Sarah se Gat kan skade doen. Sulke voorvalle bederf die aangename atmosfeer by Sarah se Gat,” voeg die gereelde kroeg ondersteuner by. Sy het ook laat hoor dat dit slegte maniere is en nie gedult sal word nie. Volgens Boulle was dit ‘n afsonderlike voorval en nie die norm nie. “Niemand het seergekry nie, en die moeilikheid makers het dadelik hulle streke laat staan toe ons hulle vra om op te hou,” sê hy.

Just Your Regular Water Buddy Lavrenty Repin “It’s not going to make me rich, but it satisfies a lot of people,” says Buddy Glover, a retired horticulturist, who for the past four years has been running the RO3 Water franchise in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. What makes RO3 Water such an advantage for the coastal community is the complex purification system that the water goes through before it is sold and since consumers can re-use their own containers the water is a highly affordable and healthy alternative to tap-water or even other bottled water on the market. Before your container is filled, the water is sand and carbon filtrated, ensuring that all un-dissolved solids, pesticides and other organic chemicals are removed. This is done for particles of up to an impressive 1 micron or 0.001 millimetres! Thereafter a process of reverse osmosis, UV treatment and ozonation ensures that the water is safe and pure. Buddy pointed out that it is highly plausible that old houses can have unhealthy contaminated water due to rusty pipes; there is even a possibility that some old houses still use lead piping, which can be an extremely serious hazard. Also, the water at the coast is high in sodium, which is what makes it so hard – RO3 Water removes all sodium to restore the water to its purest form. RO3 Water is highly beneficial to people suffering from asthma, arthritis and many other common ailments. Buddy says he has a “soft spot” for this business, and is happy to divulge that patients who may only

drink purified water due to their illnesses often get water from him. He has also noticed a curious trend, where taxi drivers have created a secondary business for themselves by transporting water from his shop on Sam Nujoma Avenue to the Kuisebmund area; where water is in high demand. This is why Buddy Glover has collaborated with Mary Ankonga and they’ve set up a container in Kuisebmund so that the local community would

have easy access to affordable, safe and delicious water right in the heart of Kuisebmund. It has only been in operation for a couple of weeks, located in Foskaa Street, but they’re currently selling over 500 litres a day - and that number is on a rise. Buddy hopes that he can do the same for Swakopmund’s less privileged areas in the near future. To Buddy the water business is a “feel-good” kind of business and he encourages everyone to try out the healthier alternative – RO3 Water.

Animal Communicator visits the Coast Madelaine Laubscher Chantelle Meyburgh, wellknown Alternative Healer, Animal Communicator and Yoga teacher, will be hosting a workshop from 29 August until 7 September in Swakopmund. Chantelle Meyburgh is the founder of Source Integral Healing

and the SunKidz Programmes. She has spent the better part of the last 13 years travelling to various destinations in South Africa, Namibia and Zambia hosting talks, facilitating individual healing, and transformational workshops for adults and children. The Namib Independent had the chance to speak to Chantelle.

“For years, people believed that it is impossible to speak to animals, but I am hosting workshops to prove them wrong. Collectively our souls are all one, both humans and animals. It can be seen as a twoway process regarding animal communication. I call it 'pulses' that can be felt between me and animals

when we communicate. We all have psychic abilities and therefore I teach yoga classes as well as animal communication workshops to help people get in line with their spiritual and psychic abilities. In these workshops I teach people how to talk to animals and heal themselves,” Chantelle said. Chantelle mostly speaks to lions, cheetahs, tigers and elephants and feels a very strong connection with cats. "When I am tuned into an animal, asking them questions, I receive answers from them in pictures, words and thoughts that flow into my mind," she explained. If the animal is feeling sick or something is wrong in its body, she will feel an uncomfortable feeling/pain in her body in the same place as the animal. "When I am communicating with an animal with a bone stuck in its tooth, I suddenly feel as though I have a piece of bone stuck in my tooth, enabling me to communicate this to the human" Chantelle laid out. Sometimes animals even show her how they became injured. "A dog showed me how he lost his leg when he was run over by a blue car. I could see this in my mind as if I was watching it happen in a movie. When my own cats talk to me, it’s as if I can hear their voices in my mind. They all sound different,” she said. Chantelle was asked when she first started communicating with animals. “I knew I could communicate with animals ever since I was born in 1966. I was told to never tell anyone, but in the year 2009 I decided to join Animal Communicator, Amelia Kinkade, in her workshops and since then I have been actively teaching people how to communicate with animals,” she said. Chantelle offers her clients simple, yet effective tools to find balance, inner peace and well-being by following some practical steps that will be shown in her workshops. Daily Yoga practice has also been part of Chantelle’s routine for a number of years. She soon realised that Yoga is a Master Key to deepen awareness and reveal the true inner Self. In January 2012, she fulfilled one of her dreams by going to India, the source of Yoga, to qualify as a Yoga teacher. Chantelle has appeared on national television and radio, and has been interviewed by a number of newspaper and magazine publications. “I believe in balanced living, giving back, loving all of creation, creative expression, empowerment through taking responsibility, and fitness of mind and body through Yoga and meditation,” she concluded.

Paramedics Face Needless Chaos Everyday

Lavrenty Repin Last week saw an alarming number of serious accidents, namely eight between Walvis Bay, Swakopmund and Usakos alone. Six people died since last week Thursday, and seven were injured. It was a busy and difficult week for the few emergency services operating out of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, who are clearly overworked and probably underpaid but nonetheless continue their duty diligently. After a week from hell for rescue services, I sat down with Brendon Scott and Mark

Eadie, two senior E-Med Paramedics, to find out some of the challenges that they face in the line of duty. Only to discover that one of their worst obstacles is the public’s attitude towards emergency vehicles and practitioners on accident scenes. “Cars block our path and simply refuse to give way every single time we go out,” Brendon says. “In the past three years I can recall only one instance when all cars gave way to my ambulance travelling from Walvis Bay to Swakopmund.” The repercussions of such arrogant behaviour can be devastating: “We had patients die on us that would’ve

lived had we been there two minutes earlier! That’s all it takes. If we don’t get to a heart attack victim within literally 10 minutes, there is very little chance of him surviving,” they explain. For example, had they arrived merely five minutes later to an accident on Thursday night, according to Mark, there would have been an extra fatality added to the statistics. “Often the small unstable sedans will slow down and pull over to the shoulder while the comfortable SUV’s will completely ignore the sirens, even flip us off when we overtake.” Another prevailing problem is bystanders who flock to horrific accidents, rowdily taking pictures. When a paramedic is trying to assess the situation, save a life and keep the scene under control, the added stress could be catastrophic for his patient. Recently two mini-bus taxis stopped on the B2 road, allowing 60 people to crowd an accident scene. When asked to back away, they aggressively protested. Pictures of casualties are even uploaded on Facebook before the next of kin is informed. Such antisocial behaviour often leads to more grief than is necessary. The paramedics frequently get to accident scenes earlier than the police but since they are trying to save lives, they simply have no time to deal with intrusive bystanders. “What people don’t realise is that we’ve got the same legal powers as the police do – yet we don’t exercise them because for us

the patient is much more important,” Mark points out. The problems just pile on as ambulances have to deal with cars tail-gating them, even following them through red lights. “When we have to do an emergency break, obviously the car behind will bump us – we have to stop, which means a patient somewhere is not being helped.” “We’ve noticed that the middle class are most likely to give us way, while the luxury cars and the lower class very often give us problems - BMW’s that decide to accelerate the moment we overtake try to race with us, you can even see the driver smiling; or taxi drivers taking chances tail-gating.” This seems to be a regular nuisance, but the consequences are deadly. “Imagine if it was your family in that situation, what you would do? There is no law for how many hours a week we should work! In peak season, it’s normal for us to go 48 hours straight on the job, we’re stressed enough as it is. Remember that it could be your family that’s in trouble,” the Paramedics stressed. If you purposely block an emergency vehicle, not only is it illegal and immoral but your absent-minded behaviour could very well be fatal. Respect the only people that you can always call when you’re in trouble; if you see sirens in your rear-view mirror, slow-down but don’t slam on the breaks, and give way by pulling over to the shoulder. It could mean the difference between life and death.

Rössing Marathon Champions Receive Development Bonuses The 2013 Rössing Marathon Champions were awarded with a development bonus at the Namibia Defense Force’s Sport Division in Windhoek. The Rössing National Marathon Champion for 2013, Mr Paulus Iyambo, was awarded a development bonus worth N$20 000. The winner in the Ladies’ Open Category of the marathon was Mrs Alina Armas, who also received N$20 000, but could not attend the handover event due to her representing Namibia at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow. Both Iyambo and Armas are members of the NDF Sport Club in Windhoek. These sponsorships, given in

addition to the N$10 000 cash prize won by each of the two category winners during the Rössing Marathon in February, form part of Rössing’s focus on promoting healthy lifestyles. Rössing awards development bonuses to the Namibian winners in the Men’s and Ladies’ Open categories to enable them to build their athletics careers beyond the actual marathon competition. This is the third consecutive year that the development bonuses were awarded. Rössing continues to monitor and support the careers and achievements of the two winners by rendering material support.

Penda Kiiyala, Rössing’s General Manager External Relations, said at the handover event: “We want to play our part in giving Namibia’s Championship athletes the best possible chance to succeed on the world stage. It then also becomes a celebration of the athletes’ outstanding achievements beyond the Rössing Marathon earlier in the year. Paulus, winning the Rössing National Marathon Championship for a second year in a row in

2013, is a shining, young, up-andcoming talent for the future. We believe that our association with Namibian champions will inspire and encourage other young Namibians to get more involved in sport and be our sporting heroes of tomorrow.” Paulus, who has been plagued by injuries this year, is confident that he will be back to defend his title in 2014. Receiving the development bonus Paulus said, “I have started training again and will be working hard to make a successful return. With the help of the development bonus from Rössing I have been able to recover much faster and get back into top shape.”

Due to Mavara’s current profession and his love for nature, his fighting alias is “The Predator” and he says he is “back for serious business”. Mavara will be representing both the East and West Kavango regions, which are yet to produce a professional boxer or host a professional fight since Independence. Mavara hopes to rectify that. He has begun training in Walvis Bay with his coach Lukas Nghikembwa, of Nestor Sunshine Training and Fitness Academy. “My aim is to become champion,” says The Predator bluntly.
