A reward of N$30 000 is on offer for information leading to the arrest of criminals who took part in a raid that ended with the fatal shooting of Raymond Prendiville last week. Police confirmed that a friend has offered the reward. The body of Raymond Prendiville was repatriated to Ireland on Tuesday for burial. The body was accompanied by his friend, who survived the shooting incident. The intruders wrestled with Prendiville and his friend, but when the suspects realised they were being overpowered they split and fled from the house. One of the gang members drew a gun and shot Prendiville in the left armpit before fleeing. Prendiville died instantly. Members of the public with information about the murder can contact Deputy Commissioner Ottilie Kashuupulwa on 064 219036 or 081 250 6821 or Detective Inspector Erastus Iikuyu on 081 246 4757.

Several local women have come forward with disturbing stories of how a short, stocky Walvis man of Indian origin has been stalking them for months in person, and via email, cell phones and the internet. According to *Melissa van Zyl (pseudonym), 28, the stalker first contacted her about a year ago, suggesting he has information which might be valuable to her,

and asked for her to meet him somewhere so that he could share this with her. “Immediately I was suspicious and said that I prefer to have the conversation on the phone. I only gave him my work number. He agreed, and phoned me at work the next day. He did not disclose any information, but instead started asking me several questions about arbitrary stuff and accusing people of using and abusing him,” Melissa told the Namib Independent

earlier this week. According to Melissa, that was just the start. He constantly phoned her, emailed her and asked random questions. “I asked him to leave me alone, but he simply carried on stalking me. At this stage I have never seen this man before, only recognised him by his high pitched voice, whenever he phoned,” Melissa explained. Shortly after she had demanded that he stop stalking her, he emailed her the account details and password for a dating website

profile he had created for her. “He said that he opened one for me using my work email address, and that we should start chatting on this site,” Melissa said, shocked, and angered. She immediately reported the incident to the site management to destroy the profile he had created for her, which they eventually did. “The creep then stopped phoning me, but soon after I noticed a man staring at me, wherever I went.

At first I thought that it was a coincidence, but soon realised that it was my stalker, by recognising his high pitched voice. I was horrified.” Another such disturbing incidence happened to 25-year-old *Ansie Grobler (Pseudonym). “It started with phone calls to my workplace. I asked him to stop, but he then started coming to my office. After a while everyone at the office knew to say that I was not in,” Ansie told the Namib Independent. She thought about reporting him to the police, but said that she was not sure whether he was breaking any laws. Ansie explained that he stalked her very intensely; it even continued when she lived overseas for two years. “I really got scared when he started following me places upon my return to Walvis Bay. He would follow me to work, or to my sister’s office, and stare at me. One day I went to him and in a very firm serious manner

told him that I will have him locked up, if he ever comes near me again.” So far, so good, and she has not heard or seen him for some time. Another one of his victims was 18-year-old *Renè Fourie (pseudonym). It started with Facebook stalking. “He would bombard me with messages and requests to chat. I kept blocking him and reporting him to Facebook, but a day or two later he would be back with another similar profile. I eventually blocked him five times before he stopped,” Renè explained. This bizarre tale of the stalker seemed to be following the same pattern as the others, starting with phone calls, emails, Facebook, and eventually physically stalking the women, who are also all brunettes. After the Facebook stalking, he also started showing up at places that Renè was at. “I eventually told him to sod of and that I will report him and tell everyone that he is a creepy

stalker,” she said. Renè has since not heard from him again. Melissa was, however, not so lucky. The stalker contacted her again, requesting a meeting to straighten out the incident. “I refused to see him, and weirdly enough he contacted my employer, requesting the same,” Melissa said. The email the stalker sent read, “Hello, I want to make an appointment with your boss. I want his contact email. I want to explain a situation that I had with one of your employees. She has contacted me on one of the social networking sites to be her friend, but I was told by email a long time ago not to contact her and I have not contacted her, because your boss said it was not right of what I did. Can I come and explain myself from a medical point of view. Some people might not understand why I want to be their friend.” According to a ‘New Legislation Proposal on

Stalking in Namibia’, released by Dianne Hubbard from the Legal Assistance Centre of Namibia, ‘Stalking’ is not a legal term in Namibia, therefore a difficult case to defend. “There are a few laws which can be used to address stalking in Namibia, although there is no legislation aimed specifically at this behaviour,” Hubbard said in her statement. According to General Inspector Ikuyu from Nampol, there is not a specific charge one can lay against Stalking, but one

could perhaps take a different approach. “The best and most effective way to combat a stalker would be to go to the courts and apply for a protection or restraining order against the person. If such an order is approved by the court you have some protection,” Ikuyu explained. According to Ikuyu, if the stalker, after being issued with a restraining order, still stalks you, he can be arrested for dishonouring the court’s orders.

Local Loses Memory Due to Assault Siglinde de Villiers A local Meersig resident was found unconscious in his driveway after allegedly receiving a terrible beating and blow to the head by unknown suspect(s).

The victims’ father found his son lying unconscious in the driveway between 1pm and 2pm on Monday. ”I immediately contacted St Gabriel’s Community Trust Ambulance Services, who took him to the hospital,” said the father. Once at the hospital he received stitches and treatment for his injuries. According to the victim, who wishes to remain anonymous due to ongoing investigations,

he stayed at home during the morning because he felt ill. After responding to a knock on the door, the attacked received a blow to the back of his head. He lost consciousness and hence has been struggling with loss of memory. According to the mother, they did not miss any items and she reckons nothing was stolen. The motive of the attack still remains unclear. “I feel uncomfortable in my own house and do not feel safe to go back home,” the victim told the Namib Independent in an interview. He has left town to receive appropriate trauma counselling.

The family is shattered and said that they do not feel secure on their own property anymore. At the time of going to print the incident has not been reported to the Police yet. “At this stage we feel that due to his memory loss there is not much to report because my son cannot remember what happened,” the mother stressed. The father assumes that because the Neighbourhood Watch activities are only run after working hours criminals have changed their tactics to striking during the day when most of the home owners and volunteers for the Neighbourhood Watch are at work.

Woman Claims Traditional Healer Raped Her Dorcas Mhungu On Monday, a young man claiming to be a traditional healer appeared before Walvis Bay Magistrate Andre Matulich facing a rape charge. Appearing for the first time since his arrest, 28-year-old Salmon Katalgo Kandere was remanded in custody, pending approval of his bail

application. Public Prosecutor Eden Iyambo told the presiding magistrate that the case is still in its early stages of investigation and the State needs more time to continue with the investigations. Kandere is alleged to have had non-consensual intercourse with a female who had consulted him for treatment. Magistrate Matulich said as required by law, the investigating

officer must submit a report on the accused’s (Kandere) conduct during investigations to the alleged rape charge. The visibly angry Kandere kept casting scornful looks at a woman in the audience and when the police officer ushered him out of the courtroom, he turned round at the door and pointed a threatening finger, mumbling as he left the court room.

Arrested for Raping a Dog... for the Third Time Dorcas Mhungu Appearing before the Walvis Bay Magistrate on Monday, 32-year-old Ben Katjihanda was remanded on N$1 000 bail after he was arrested for having sexual intercourse with a dog. The criminal charge for the act is bestiality. This is the third time Namib

Independent has reported bestiality allegations against Katjihanda. Peter Brooks, Kennel Master and Chief Investigating Officer of SPCA Walvis Bay said, "The Walvis Bay SPCA is not able to charge the man in question as the prosecution process is being handled by Nampol directly. Nampol trumps SPCA, as we do not

interfere in ongoing investigations unless given the correct authorisation. All dogs seized by the police are placed in protective custody." Brooks was responding to a query on what the animals’ custodian organisation has done in this case where the accused man has done it for the third time.

Going Strong after the Fire - Suidwes Drankwinkel Siglinde de Villiers Following the devastating fire at Suidwes Diensstasie in July, Suidwes Drankwinkel owner Mr Hennie Theron is suffering losses, even though he had no fire damage. The aftermath leaves him struggling to make ends meet. From a daily turnover of approximately N$2000 the cash flow has ceased to about N$300. “I have lost nothing except the customers,” Mr Theron told the Namib Independent in an interview. The lack of cash flow prevents the business to acquire new stock; the shelves appear empty as a result. The loss of income means that the business is hanging on a very thin line of survival.

According to Theron, the same problem is also affecting the other surrounding businesses, comprising the service station as well as the butchery. There are several reasons for this. One of them could be the lack of parking space due to reconstruction efforts of the damaged sections of the building. “Many people are under the impression that my shop has closed because of the fire, or they do not know that it exists,” Theron explained. However, the Suidwes Drankwinkel is fully operational and urges its clients to return. Initially, the fire gave Theron a big fright. He only heard about the fire when a friend called him and told him the dreadful news. The morning

after, Theron was standing in front of his business facing heaps of ashes. “It was a great relief to discover that my shop was unscathed, except for a bit of water that entered when the fire brigade extinguished the fire,” he laid out. “I have invested all of my pension funds into this business,” Theron said, “and would have lost it all if the fire had caused any damage.” He bought the business earlier this year in March. The history of Suidwes Drankwinkel stretches all the way until the 1970s though, closing and opening its doors several times. Despite the misfortunes encountered, Theron is not without hope. He aims to sell the cheapest liquor in town and promises to deliver excellent customer service in order

to attract and maintain his customers. In addition, he expressed his plans on expanding his liquor range. If anyone happens to have a special request for a specific product he will ensure that it appears on the shelves. Theron is busy planning a campaign during the month of December where he

Desert Storm - Swakopmunders Urged to Stay Away Stalwart held in South Africa in 2011, the Skills Exchange Exercise, Ninosile, that was hosted by Zambia in 2012 and Exercise High Lander (Anti-Terror) conducted in Lesotho the same year. Around 600 soldiers are expected to take part in the different drills relevant to desert warfare and both ‘blanks’ and live bullets will be used. Residents of

Dorcas Mhungu The Southern African Development Community (SADC) bond is being strengthened through the Desert Warfare Special Exercise underway in the Namib Desert. In his welcome message to military personnel from six participating SADC member countries, Namibia’s Lieutenant General Epaphras Denga-Ndaitwah, Chief of the Defense Force, said the exercise is the first on Namibian territory. “I want to inform you that you will endure the unpredicted cold, mist, dusty and hot weather conditions of the Namib Desert. Nevertheless, you are special forces who are well trained to cope with any challenges and harsh weather conditions,” Denga-Ndaitwah cautioned. Participating countries present at yesterday’s event are Angola Malawi, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Namibia. Botswana, Tanzania and Lesotho are expected to arrive later. The Defense Chief warned the soldiers to be wary in order to avoid fatal accidents and to use the equipment carefully to minimise damage and losses. Denga-Ndaitwah said the exercise, code-named Welwitchia, is taking place in a protected area and therefore the forces need to be friendly to the environment. He also said the regional military cooperation of member countries seeks to bring and maintain peace and stability on the continent. “I must inform you that as you are conducting this unique exercise, some members of our forces, namely the Tanzania People’s Defense Forces and South Africa National Defense Forces, are battling enemies of peace and stability in the jungles of DRC,” said Denga-Ndaitwah. The Exercise coincides with the Regional Chiefs of Defense Forces Gathering taking place in Windhoek and will be followed by the SADC Summit of the Heads of State. The Exercise’s history includes the first Exercise

Swakopmund have been warned to keep away from the area to avoid fatalities and injuries. Denga-Ndaitwah said the exercise was mooted as a result of the need to improve regional military cooperation and to improve military reaction in different geographical terrains.

Mrs Smith sweeps police aside

Staff reporter A woman, who was the victim of a broad daylight knife-point robbery gone wrong, displayed incredible dignity, courage and enlightenment when she was afforded the opportunity to confront her assailant face to face. The final confrontation between attacker and victim took place shortly after the botched robber attempt in Walvis Bay last Saturday morning in a busy town centre. Maria Smith and her son Edward walking home from a morning’s shopping outing, bags in hand, when a man attacked Maria from behind in an attempt to relieve her of her “hand bag”, which in fact fastened around her neck. The bag specifically designed to be carried around the neck so that the pouch faces forward upon the chest, is obviously designed to put off would-be grabbers from selecting the wearer as a victim. However, in this instance the young wouldbe mugger was not to be discouraged. He sought to simply solve the problem by using his knife to grab and then cut the straps of the bag, causing physical and emotional harm to Maria in the process. Her son Edward, who is still a child, showed enormous courage and wit when he reacted swiftly by kicking the hapless assailant between the legs, causing him to abandon his mission in favour of making a dash for it with his gear and pride semi-intact. The attacker did not get too far though, as witnesses to the attempted robbery chased and pinned him down only a few blocks away in JC Harris Park. Within minutes, members

of G4S were on the scene and were quick to help stabilise the volatile situation that arose as many onlookers gathered around to catch a glimpse of the action. Hot on their heels were members of Nampol, who set about cuffing the robber. As the crowd grew bigger - though the situation did not offer onlookers clarity as to the events which led to the detaining of the suspect - the victim and her son where driven to the affray by another witness. What followed was a remarkable display of human solidarity and compassion, as Maria surprisingly brushed the police officers off the young man so that she could address him directly and instead of delivering a tirade or indeed a few slaps to the head as so many would, Maria elected instead to understandingly address the deeper reasons for his attack. “Why would you do this? Is this how we as Namibians should behave and treat one another? Tell me son, are you hungry, do you need food? What makes you be so violent towards others? Do you need a job? What is going on?” said Maria. All that was left was for the perpetrator to drop and hold his head in shame. After quizzing the young man and making him face up to his misdeeds, Maria elected not to press charges, saying that having to have faced the attacker was all she required instead of retribution. Although no charges were pressed, members of the special unit who had reached the scene while Maria was facing off with her attacker hit the assailant in the stomach, kicked him in the shins and then tousled him into a police van and left the scene.

Coastal Company Acquires Country’s First Computerised Welding Machine Dorcas Mhungu Omahooli Solutions, a Walvis Bay based company, have recently acquired an innovative computerised welding machine, which uses Modified TIG Process. This is the first of its kind in Namibia. While the acquisition of this technology might to some seem mundane, the

importance of this milestone is that for the first time a local company can seriously compete against international companies. These had, until now, the upper hand on our local service providers. Rudi Botha, Technical Manager at Omahooli, told delegates attending a demonstration that the computerised welding machine has numerous

advantages over conventional welding. “Conventional welding is unnatural and puts a lot of stress on surrounding areas. Often there are defects and the job is rejected,” he said, explaining some of the advantages of the new equipment. It takes under eight minutes to drill around an 8 inch diameter pipe. Production will be greatly increased and

Friday the 13th Lavrenty Repin

Films, books and folktales have contributed to the ancient superstition of Friday the 13th. This year, Friday the 13th falls in September, and although we live in a world surrounded by technology that can instantly tell us what day of the week it’s going to be in any given year, time and time again we’re caught off guard when the inevitable day arrives. Few actually believe in the superstitions. However, even the most skeptical may find themselves

costs will be cut. Botha said the machine is capable of detecting and correcting errors as it works on surfaces. Conventional welding produces a lot of heat while the new technology produces very little heat. There is a significant reduction in the heat affected zone eliminating the need to pour water to cool down the heated surface.

a little uneasy throughout the day. Blaming unfortunate events on a man-made set of dates that in actuality holds no significance besides those that we ourselves invent may seem silly to most, but for others there is absolutely no doubt that if you let it, everything will go wrong on Friday the 13th; this phobia is called “friggatriskaidekaphobia”. So where did such a seemingly arbitrary myth originate from? Although there isn’t any conclusive evidence as to the origins of the superstition, the most obvious explanation is that 13 has for a very long time been an unlucky number, mostly because of its irregularity. Friday, too, has

a dark history, as it is the day that Jesus was crucified. However, like most myths, the “Friday the 13th” popularity seems to originate from nothing more than a fictitious novel by writer Thomas W. Larson. Interestingly, in Spanishspeaking countries, Tuesday the 13th is considered unlucky. Also, statistics ironically suggest that driving on Friday the thirteenth is slightly safer than on any other day, most likely because people are more cautious. However, a number of devastating events have also occurred on this date. For instance, in 1970 a storm in South Asia killed an estimated 300,000 people in Chittagong, Bangladesh, and created floods

that killed as many as 1 million in the Ganges delta. Tupac Shakur, famous rapper, died on a Friday the 13th. According to one report, on Friday the 13th of June, 1952, Massachusetts Governor Kyle McArthur banned all private automotive transportation on the unlucky day. Poignantly, nine overcrowded city buses crashed into each other in downtown Boston. Whether you are going to pull a blanket over your head and avoid all contact with the world, or open umbrellas in the house, look for black cats and walk under ladders, we would love to hear your Friday the 13th stories!

Walvis Mayor’s Secretary the Best

The Namib Independent is happy to present to you the winner of our ‘Secretary of the Year’ Competition: Ms Lelanie Coetzee, Secretary to the Mayor of Walvis Bay Municipality. Lelanie, or Lanie as her colleagues call her, was entered into the Namib Independent’s ‘Secretary of the Year’ Competition by fellow co-worker, Mr Erastus Kajele, who described Lanie as a very friendly, helpful, detailed and organised person. “Lanie is a good listener and presents a solution, rather than dwelling on a

problem,” said Erastus in his entrée email. The Namib Independent popped by on Wednesday to hand over Lelanie’s prize, just to find her doing some work, despite being booked of by her doctor for flu. Well done, Lelanie! You truly deserve the title. The winning company also receives N$2000 worth of advertising in the paper. Unfortunately, by the time of going to print, Hon Mayor Uillika Nambahu could not be reached for comment about Lelanie’s welldeserved title.

Mr Strack and Mr Roxin

This exhibition, set in chronological order, illustrates 59 years of artwork by Peter Strack, opening viewers to a life of an artist as he matures and transforms over the years. It is intriguing to see the contrast between some of his earliest works compared to the more recent pieces, some from this year, that have an abstract touch to them. Erhard Roxin, a leading architect in Swakopmund and close friend to Peter Strack, referred to his work as “a symbol for culture”. He pointed out how Strack drew inspiration from themes such as religion, cultural differences and inequality. He also praised Peter Stracks architectural contribution – “He influenced the skyline of Windhoek enormously.” In his young years, Peter Strack was mentored by Namibia’s internationally recognised painter, Adolph Jentsch. He went on to become one of Namibia’s best architects, planning the Development Bank and the Hansa Breweries complex. He is also a keen art collector, and is a proud owner of over 280 pieces from, amongst others, Olga Livingson and Adolph Jentsch. According to Erhard Roxin, Strack was offered N$7 million for the collection by Southbys Institution of Art, one of the largest art brokers in the world. However, Mr Strack refused the offer and hopes to someday open a gallery where the best of Namibian art can be displayed. His art will be on display until the end of September.

Walvis Medical Fraternity Booming Siglinde de Villiers Walvis Bay’s dramatic population increase shows figures exceeding 62,000 inhabitants. Health care facilities need to keep pace with this and have to expand in order to accommodate the greater need. However, are all the needs catered for? According to research, more people generally mean economic growth, yet increased opportunities bring along the negative downside of stress and unhealthy lifestyle problems. Even so, more people are able to afford better healthcare and therefore Walvis Bay is greatly pleased to see a new medical fraternity booming. The new medical fraternity constitutes two bio kinetics centres, namely BRG Biokinetics and Biokinetics Rehabilitation Centre. The latter also includes a Physiotherapy practice with the only heated indoor pool in town. Petro D van Deventer Physiotherapy is also located on the same premises. The complex further comprises the Tamlyn Fox Dentistry, an occupational therapist, two doctors, a Fine Line Slimming Practice using laser slimming treatment and the new premises of the Blood Donation Clinic. The Namib Independent asked some of these practices for their opinions of the new medical fraternity. “It is great, for there is more space available and the multidisciplinary setup allows for quick and effective care of patients, especially in the case of a medical emergency,” Helene Wigget from the Biokinetics Rehabilitation Centre said. She further added: “Because everything is so close it allows for easy referrals.” “The expansion is incredible, because the more medical facilities there are the better the service becomes for the people,” was the view of Anna–Mart from Anna–Mart Physiotherapy. Johann Esterhuyse was of a similar opinion. “I feel very positive about the new expansion. It allows us to provide a better service to our clients.” “Since we had to buy the plots on which our practices

Tamlyn Fox Dentistry

Fine Line Slimming Practice

are situated, I have the freedom to do my own thing, should I want to expand my practice,” Dr Tamlyn Fox explained. Many employees have also expressed how thrilled they are about the new employment opportunities the expansion creates. Some said that the location of their practice in the new medical fraternity lends more credibility to it, for if it were situated anywhere else it would be regarded with scepticism. Many enjoy the quiet and restful atmosphere that surrounds the old and new buildings. Furthermore, health care practitioners and patients appreciate the more spacious environment and adequate parking areas. According to the health practitioners, the basic health care needs of the town are sufficiently supplied for. Yet, as the town grows additional practices will be required. Currently, however, there does exist a great demand for permanent specialists. According to the people interviewed at the new medical fraternity there seems to be a lack of, and a need for, dermatologists, psychiatrists, gynaecologists, orthodontists, mouth and jaw surgeons, eye specialists, orthopaedics, internal physicians and paediatricians in Walvis Bay. According to industry insiders, those who are referred to such specialists have to travel very far. Since these specialists need to provide their services to a very large area, they are fully booked and appointments are difficult to obtain. The persons interviewed also stated that some specialists do visit the coast on a regular basis but patients have to wait for long periods of time while their condition worsens. Regardless, specialists depend on the facilities of the local hospital to support them. “The community should also support local permanent specialists,” Anna–Mart said. The health care practitioners of the new medical fraternity did express their hopes that as the town becomes bigger, the future might see a few specialists settle in Walvis Bay.

Diver Loses Life after Boat Capsises Dorcas Mhungu

42-year-old Edward Hayman died last Friday from injuries sustained when the boat he and two other co-workers were working on capsised at Namdock 2 at the Walvis Bay Harbour. Namibia Police Erongo Region Deputy Commissioner Ottilie Kashuupulwa said the boat

capsised while Hayman and his colleagues were trying to sink a block in the sea to park the boat. The contents of the boat fell on Hayman and pushed him into the water. He was rushed to Welwitchia Hospital but died an hour later. According to medical personnel on the scene, it took more than ten minutes to find Hayman. At the time he was reported to have had

a wound to the head. “I do not know how long he had been under the water,” stated one emergency rescuer on the scene. Subtech Chief Executive Officer, Craig Heslop, in a Press Release said that Hayman was an experienced dive supervisor who had been employed by Subtech for more than six years; the last three as Regional Manager. He was responsible

for the Western Cape and Namibia Regional operations of the Company. “Edward was a wellrespected and liked figure in the marine industry and will be sorely missed by all. Edward is survived by his wife Samantha and daughters Morgan and Tori. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Edward’s family and friends,” Heslop stated.

The two other injured employees are expected to make a full recovery. In the interim, Subtech is in the process of conducting an investigation in order to determine the possible cause of the accident. The Subtech Group are contracted by a third party, Elgin Brown & Hamer Namibia, to complete the anchoring block placement for a new floating dock in Walvis Bay.

Off-shore Exploration Blamed for Tuna Decrease Lavrenty Repin Ahead of the albacore tuna fishing season due to start in October, a serious concern has been raised regarding the Kudu Gas exploration seismic activity’s impact on the marine life off the coast of Namibia. According to a press release by Large Pelagic and Hake Longlining Association, albacore tuna catches off the 20 square kilometers Tripp Sea Mount just north of the Namibian / South African border have dropped tremendously - from 4046 tons in 2011 down to a mere 643 tons in 2013. This drastic decrease “parallels significant seismic exploration near the Tripp Sea Mount fishing grounds, and points very strongly to seismic exploration,” the release goes on to say. A task force has been established by the Government to asses the impact and find a suitable solution. An independent study, headed by Dr. Mwiyo of Risk Based Solutions, is also underway. However, a mutual solution may be

much more complicated to accomplish than expected. Although various seismic machinery can be utilised, Kudu Gas currently uses Seismic Airguns to conduct off-shore oil and gas exploration, which arguably achieves the most precise results but is also the most damaging to marine bio-diversity. The press release mentions that this technology sends out seismic pulses at around 230-250 decibels as frequently as every eight seconds. To put it into perspective, 150 dB can be fatal to humans at close range; an atomic bomb produces 250 dB on impact. It is important to note that sound dissipates much slower in salt water and carries for incredible distances. Whale calling is a perfect example of the impact loud noise may cause underwater; according to a 2009 report conducted by Okeanos on Alternative Technologies to Seismic Airgun Surveys for Oil and Gas Exploration and their Potential for Reducing Impacts on Marine Mammals, “such calls can theoretically travel

almost across ocean basins”. In regards to airguns, the report states that they produce more noise (waste sound) than is needed for hydrocarbon exploration. "Studies with caged fish suggest that the ears of fish exposed to airguns sustain severe damage to their sensory cells, with no evidence of repair or replacement of damaged cells after exposure,” the report continues. Migration patters are vital in understanding how seismic airguns effect the population of fish in a certain location. Albacore tuna migrate internationally and on reaching Southern Africa, are primarily caught off Cape Town and then migrate north to Tripp Sea Mount, before heading out into the Atlantic Ocean, says the abovementioned press release. An extensive report on how

shipping noise contributes to tuna’s migration patterns illustrates how sensitive this fish is to any change of sound in their environment. “In the absence of boat noise, tuna behavior appeared to be very calm, exploiting the available water column, swimming slowly and horizontally,” the 2007 report, a part of the Marine Ecological Progress Series, states. “Boat engine noise (which only reaches about 100dB) elicited significantly different behavioral responses. The behavioral traits appeared to have significant impact on the swimming behavior of Tuna, their spatial position in the water and their group structure. Such a behavioral response appeared to be suggestive of avoidance behavior and movement away from the sound source.”

This is a clear-cut indication that tuna respond to noise change in their environment significantly, which may affect the migration direction, in turn affecting the fishing industry. “Although shipping noise is undoubtedly the largest contributor to chronic ocean noise on an ocean basin scale, noise from a Seismic Airgun Array Survey can change the acoustic environment on a seasonal timescale and for a region much larger than the region within which the survey is conducted,” the Okeanos report writes on the matter. Studying tuna behavior is a very complex and difficult process and little concrete information is available. This fact alone may prolong the debate between the various ministries and companies.

Swimming in Murky Waters Dear Editor,




Namspace is looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic Management Couple to manage one of the Company’s construction camps.

Namspace is looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic Management Couple to manage one of the Company’s construction camps.

The successful candidates will be a capable, committed, well organized team who are willing to live in a remote environment.

I would like to respond to an “Opinion Piece” by Lavrenty Repin, published in your newspaper on 5 September 2013, concerning the Swakopmund Swimming Pool. Sadly, Mr Repin seems to have forgotten to verify his claims before publishing his piece. Mr Repin complains that children should have to pay $30. This is incorrect. The entry fee of $30 is for adults. Children under 18 only pay $20, as do pensioners. This is clearly indicated at the front door. Also, it will not cost a serious swimmer $500 per month to train, as Mr Repin claims. Against a monthly fee of $345 you can swim as often as you like. Anyone who still considers that too high should enquire about the costs involved in running such a pool. It is not fair to compare these fees to the old pool's fees of many years ago. By the time the old pool closed (three years ago), club swimmers paid $7, everyone else paid $12. I am sure that if they were still open today, that fee would have also increased to close to $20. And that was for a very cold pool and no more hot showers as the boiler fell apart and was never replaced. Also, compare the new pool's fees to the Rössing pool, where our club swimmers trained these last three years. The entry fee there is also $20, the pool is not heated, it is very dirty, and has no hot showers. And you still need to get there.

Mr Repin goes on to state that once you are actually in the new pool's water, “it feels exactly the same as any other pool”. I am not sure what Mr Repin was expecting. A supernatural experience? A pool is a pool, after all. It's all we asked for! He also says the new pool is a lot emptier. I wonder when he last swam in the old pool. In the last few years before the old pool closed it was very empty, as water temperatures plummeted to 16°C and there were no more hot showers. The new pool is fairly quiet in the morning, since most people work and children go to school, but otherwise it is definitely fuller than the old pool was. And then Mr Repin goes on to wonder what happened to those swimmers “who once dominated the galas”. Well, those who “dominated” were the older ones. They grew up. Most of them left Swakopmund before the old pool closed, in order to study or work in South Africa or elsewhere. And some are still swimming wherever they are, and train with Swakopmund Swimming Club when they come to visit. While it is true that we lost most of the younger competitors, those few who were serious about swimming continued their training at the Rössing Pool, and are still competing and winning medals at national championships. I have no doubt that with the new warm pool, the competitive side of Swakopmund Swimming Club will grow once more. Barbara Kittel

Refreshed Revival of Anglican Church Staff Reporter After many years of neglect, the little dilapidated Anglican Church in Sam Nujoma Street is finally receiving a facelift. “I felt bad every time I passed the church, especially since I was baptised in it”, Mr Webster, the man responsible for the renovations, said in an interview. According to him his mother was also a leading light in the church and so the building is of sentimental value to him. Being a resident of Walvis Bay for many years, Webster decided to reverse the sad situation. According to Webster the church itself does not have a lot of support, mainly because of its battered look.

Thus Webster, being a musician, played at dancing events in order to raise some funds. The renovations themselves prove to be a challenge. “We were battling to find someone to work on the structure,” he said. According to Webster, this is because the building is actually a wooden structure that has been covered with chicken mesh and then plastered in order to give a cemented look. Despite this challenge he succeeded in finding someone and currently the church is receiving a fresh coat of white paint. Future plans include the cleaning of the premises as well as the renovation of the other buildings that surround the church.

Hollywood Helvi Dorcas Mhungu It was a dream come true for Walvis Bay resident and actor Helvi Tuli Hanhele when she launched the second part of her movie “Oinima Ohainingwa” (Things Can Happen). The 23-year-old film writer and actor aims to make films with a message, targeting youth in a dynamic cultural evolution. This particular production, only Helvi’s third, was managed and directed by Salom Namwandi of SHN Business Consultancy and Promotions, and produced by Platinum Studio. Part One of Oininma Ohainingwa was already charged with emotions and a strong message, and Part Two has no trouble keeping up. The films speak up about the abuse of orphaned children by relatives and guardians. “Often,” says Helvi, “the ill treatment stems from the guardian’s wish to own wealth the orphans inherited from their parents.” The film also highlights the challenges that the older siblings face when taking over the parenting role to look after the younger ones. One issue, for example, is how the older siblings miss out on their education. The happy ending is enshrined in the principle that believing in God will open wide doors in situations where windows were closed. “Acting has been my dream and I am motivated by the Nigerian African movies,” Helvi said of her intense acting passion. The eldest in a family of three, Helvi is the only girl. She grew up in the rural northern part of Namibia and attended Ohalushu Primary School and Ponhofi Senior Secondary School, all in the north. In 2007, after completing high school, she moved to Walvis Bay and was employed by Gendev Fishing Company in 2009. After a year’s stint with the fishing company, Helvi resigned because she wanted to concentrate on acting. So, with her savings she set out to pursue her dream. “I went to Andreas Tomas of Dune Entertainment Studio and produced the first movie called ‘I Should Have Known’. It’s a life changing movie about a young girl who abuses her unemployed boyfriend, showing domestic violence perpetrated by a woman on a man, something that is the opposite of what goes on in real life,” Helvi stated. Despite the compelling theme, as well as excellent setting and acting, the film’s reception was lukewarm due to inadequate marketing. This

dampened Helvi’s spirits and motivation, leaving her overwhelmed with a desire to quit. “One day I met Mr Namwandi and he asked me why I gave up although the film carried a strong message. I then woke up from the slumber and started being real. I began to work on Part One of Oinima Ohainingwa,” said Helvi confidently. When she launched her second film, the

response was very good and left Helvi fired up and charged to pursue her dream that was beginning to slowly but surely becoming true. However, she was disappointed with the inaccurate translations, and attributes the mediocre quality to her absence during the time the translations were done. Salom, Manager and Producer of Part Two, said, “I have seen a potential in her; her films are 90 percent educational

and informing and 10 percent entertaining. Helvi acts from her heart. Videos and movies have become a strong medium of communication and for the targeted audience this is the way to convey the messages.” Helvi is polishing up work on another movie, “Oihole yonema” (Today’s Relationships). The film setting is about today’s relationships and domestic violence, cheating, insincerity in relationships

and other disappointments that people encounter in social relationships. Salom is appealing for material and financial support from the business community and individuals to advance Helvi’s objectives and aspirations. He also expressed grave concern about the high level of piracy in Namibia and called on law enforcing agents to apprehend the pirates so that artists can earn a decent living

They have a lot of data, but they’re still clueless. A better model is just around the corner. They look nice and shiny until you get them home. It’s always essential to have a backup. They’ll do whatever you want if you push the right buttons. The best part of having one is the games you can play. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on. The lights are on but nobody’s home. Big power surges knock them out at night. Size does matter.

When you ask them what’s wrong, they always say ‘nothing’. They can produce incorrect results with alarming speed. They are always turning simple statements into big productions. Small talk is important. You do the same thing for years, and suddenly it’s wrong. They make you take the garbage out. Miss a period and they go wild.

In their honeymoon suite on their wedding night. As they undressed for bed, the husband, who was a big burly man, tossed his pants to his bride and said, “here put these on.” She said “I can’t wear your pants.” “That’s right!!” said the husband, “and don’t you forget it. I’m the man who wears the pants in this family!” With that she flipped him her panties and said, “Try these on.” He tried them on and found he could only get them on as far as his kneecaps. He said, “Hell, I can’t get into your panties!” She said, “That’s right, and that’s the way it’s going to be until you change your attitude.”

2014 Jaguar XJR

Jaguar is busy honing its identity. Its engine portfolio is bursting with high-tech mills and sales are up, and although volumes approaching those of its competitors will take time to develop, image is a quicker build. Jaguar wants to be seen as a full-fledged equal to the German luxury brands. Fortunately for us, the Germans all have performance divisions, and Jaguar wants its “R” subbrand to be thought of as contextual with AMG, M, and Quattro. This, Then, Is a Fine Start So, absent since the currentgeneration XJ debuted, the XJR is back, because what’s a flagship performance subbrand without a flagship? The XJR’s supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 is cranked up from a previous high of 380Kw in the XJ Supersport - which will disappear when the XJR goes on sale - to 410kw. Torque increases from 625Nm to 680Nm. Both figures nicely square up against this car’s competitors

- except for the totally gonzo Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. This being a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8, the changes necessary to realise such gains amount to a little bit of ECU tweaking. The fruit of those tweaks travels to the rear tires through the same eightspeed automatic transmission as that found in other XJs, although the electronically controlled differential gets minor programming changes to suit the fiercer character of the XJR. The standard XJ already is the sportiest of the full-size luxury pack, but the R sees its springs and adaptive dampers firmed up by 30 percent and its steering finetuned for a sportier feel. Executiveclass rockets typically don’t get too ostentatious with their exterior decorating, and neither does the XJR. A unique front fascia and rocker panels and a lip spoiler are the extent of its bedazzlement. Inside, the only major difference from less-powerful XJs is sport buckets for the driver and passenger.

The most sporting luxury flagship gets even more power... Blah, Blah, Blah… What’s It Like to Drive? The XJR’s all-aluminum construction keeps it light for this class - lighter, in fact, than the XFR that sits below it in Jaguar’s lineup. At the track,

we found that even the long-wheelbase XJRL felt fantastically responsive and nimble, the lengthy span between front and rear axles endowing it with superb stability at all speeds. With steering that was weighty and immediate and brakes that placed uncommon strain on optic nerves, it became obvious the chassis was developed with track use in mind. Although the XJR’s tailpipes didn’t emit the raspy bark of the XFR (or, for that matter, the F-type roadster), the flagship sedan’s exhausts had sufficient growl to turn the heads of bystanders. We’ve previously clocked a 380kw XJ Supersport to 100km/h in 4.1 seconds; the R should stop the clock at four flat. Meanwhile, back in the XJR, we were reaching north of 233km/h at the end of the track’s roughly half-mile straight. Finally, Some Character Cars in this class are almost antagonizing in their perfection. The Audi S8 and the outgoing Mercedes S63 AMG excel at seemingly every last detail. The XJR, however, avoids fussiness and makes an emotional appeal. It engages the driver with abundant personality. Yes, there are quirks: The XJR’s steering borders on twitchy, the ride is less silky, and the ZF eightspeed’s downshifts can stumble a bit in Normal mode (but they tighten up in Sport mode). Still, the Jag feels focused, its purpose helping it to show a little swagger in the face of the German overachievers. If we could pick the route and maybe find a few side roads with which to exercise this car’s charms, we’d be leaning toward the Jag.

Marine Ropes Golf Day Huge Success Hook, line, sinker, rope, cable, knife, wood, charcoal and transport. Like their business, Deon and Antje Klynsmith once again gave everything at their 7th annual golf day. Thank you very much to Marine Ropes for a great day of fun, friendship and good prizes. 49 players took the field in what was the first year that Marine Ropes had a medal competition, but with a difference. Prizes were awarded to the players for Best 1st Nine Holes, Best 2nd Nine Holes as well as Overall Play for the Day. 2 – Clubs for the day: Fransie Grobler, Wynand Breytenbach, Thomas Wolff – wow, Duane Sanders - another wow, Mathew Stander, Jack Jordan and Morne Roux. The Best 1st Nine Holes was played by Bennie Lomabard on a count out, runner up was Dean Kock on 32. The Best 2nd Nine Holes was played by Peet Botha on a count out and runner up was Jack Jordan on 33. Best 18 Holes Overall was won by Kevin de Reuck on a count out, the runner up was Sergia Figueredo on a 65 Nett. Both these guys will get new handicaps. Well played. The Longest Day belonged to Mighty Burger on a 92 Nett Left: Kevin de Reuck; Right: Deon Klynsmith for the day. At least he got his

money worth as well as a nice free drink for his efforts. See our Facebook page for pictures of Mighty enjoying his free drink. Lots of fines were paid for bad language, breaking club windows - Pietie, fix the window - intimidation of fellow players and even by the sponsor for a well-played freshie on Nr 18. He got extra stretch marks after that shot. Baie dankie Deon. Bachmus Oil – Corporate Golf Day Bachmus Oil hosted guests and customers last Friday for their annual Corporate Golf Day. 72 Players took part in this very well planned golf day with a high purse that was attached to the prizes. Bachmus sponsored the lunch, dinner as well as the band afterwards. All teams received prizes. Corne, Rochelle and Cindy, thank you for making this event possible with all your arrangements and ideas. Thank you to Whitey who visited us again, for your support from Bachmus' side. We at Walvis Bay Golf Club look forward to another heck of an event next year. Last Wednesday, 35 players took part in our weekly competition. Well done. Once again one of the Oliviers won the competition. This time, Gert Olivier JNR on c/o 20 points

won over Club Captain Herman Smidt who lifted his game from a few weeks ago. 3rd place was Kevin de Reuck, also on 20 points. This coming Saturday, our oldest sponsor is the host: Mutual & Federal with the 40th year running, if I am correct. We will play a Better Ball Stableford. Impie Brand promised a ‘lekker dag’. Get your names in. After the day we will have another Oldie. Nostalgia, the band will provide live music. George du Preez, Gerald Roux, John Webster, Tommy and Leanie van der Nest and Johan Swart get together for the first time. I am too young to guess their combined age, but I am sure it will be more than a 100 years of music experience that awaits us on Saturday night. Allow me to also congratulate Neil Theron on behalf of Walvis Bay for winning the Mariental Open on Saturday. It was played over 27 holes and Neil won, going away with 9’s of 36, 41 and 35! He follows in Brendan’s footsteps, who could unfortunately not defend his title. This NAGU event attracted a record field of 43 players and the greens, course and catering by the sponsor, Wimpy, were really outstanding for a small, rural club. Definitely an event to be considered by the more serious golfers.

The Rugby Championship

shaky, and just never the same. Cooper can destroy any team when in form but I think he prayed to be substituted after that. That is what one does to a fly half; soften him up and the mistakes will start occurring as Yours Truly can testify. The brilliant lose-trio of Vermeulen Alberts and Louw was in his face the whole afternoon and one could sense that he wanted out of there. Bismarck du Plessis justified his choice at Hooker with some great steals on the ground combined with brutal strength in the scrums. The Springboks were ruthless in forward play as well as defending, and it seems that Coach Meyer has found the perfect pack of forwards for future purposes. Not one player can be faulted; it was an impressive team effort from the get-go. Alberts had a no-brainer in the 8th minute with a slap down attempt to an interception with a resulting yellow card. He more than made up for that with incredible power play and defense. I know that you pick horses for courses but this guy should be the Number One choice for No 7, irrespective of where the team plays. After the Lealifano penalty, the real trouble started for the Australians. Springbok captain Jean de Villiers first scored in the 59th minute after some great straight running. Then followed a great backline try finished off by Zane-Kirchner (65th minute), which was converted by Steyn. As if this was not enough, it was followed by an exquisite dummy from Willie le Roux that saw him crash over at the right side of the poles. It was also converted by an in-form Steyn. This was an exemplary performance from the Springboks. They won the game of Chess with no real resistance from the Aussies in the thinking department. Well done, South Africa. All Blacks, beware!

Argentina vs. New Zealand 13-28 It was soon after kick-off in a wet Waikato stadium in Hamilton that Argentina stunned the All Blacks with a 4th minute try. Juan Manuel Leguizamon crossed the line after some great handling that took the All Blacks by surprise. One got the feeling that it only angered the Blacks and that the cat was let loose amongst the pigeons from thereon in. The All Blacks started winning ruck after bruising ruck and began to set up play for their dangerous backs in very wet conditions that were not really favourable for expansive play. The Pumas tried to counter and play positively but they were frustrated by very aggressive defensive play from the Blacks. The inevitable followed soon after when Guinazu was given the mandatory ten minutes in the sin bin. But that was to be expected from the Argentineans, as all of their ‘positive’ play resulted in little more than tackling practice for the All Blacks. After two tries from Aaron Smith in the 23rd and 26th minute, Julian Savea scored one of the tries of the competition when he ran in from wide, after some beautiful hands in the wet from the All Blacks. Daniel Carter had a welcome day back and also converted this try. He was soon thereafter (54th min) replaced by Beauden Barrett, who also landed a three-pointer in the 74th minute. A big worry for the All Blacks is the injury to the seemingly indomitable Ritchie McCaw. He came off with a knee injury that looked rather painful. This old warrior is not one to feign injury so the All Blacks will be more than a little worried. It should be mentioned that the All Blacks made a lot of errors and against a better team (like South Africa) they might have been punished. No surprises that Australia coach Ewan Rugby Final Score McKenzie believes that South Africa can beat the All Standings Blacks. A real rocket scientist! P W D L +/Bp Pts 1.

Australia 3 0 0 3 -55 0 0 Jannie du Plessis) powered over in the 5th minute with support from his humongous forwards. Next Fixtures It was this Cheetah’s first test try, and it was converted New Zealand vs. South Africa at Eden Park, Auckland at by Morne Steyn. After that try one could just feel that 09:35. history was on the cards. Before this game the Springboks Australia vs. Argentina at Subiaco Stadium in Perth at 12:05. had never won at the Suncorp Stadium in seven attempts. Both games on Saturday,14 September. Christian Lealifano and Morne Steyn each succeeded with four penalties, with the last from Lealifano also being Currie Cup Fixtures the last time the Aussies scored (52nd minute). I predicted Friday, 13th: Cheetahs vs. Lions in Bloemfontein at 19h00 that Eben Etsebeth would be key in this victory and after he Saturday 14th: Griquas vs. Sharks in Kimberley at 15h00 whip-lashed Quade Cooper, the fly half was nervous and Saturday 14th: Bulls vs. Western Province in Pretoria 17h05
