Where is

the Justice? Racist Attacker Walks Away With Slap On The Wrist!



14 15


Tanya Calitz Following recent outcries by the coastal community regarding serious crimes going unpunished or charges being diminished, yet another victim of serious crimes against her has been sidelined from what may only be described as a judicial travesty. According to Walvis Bay resident Mrs Rita Sowden (63), she has for the past year desperately tried to get justice after she was verbally assaulted, threatened, racially abused, chased by car, and finally physically assaulted by the accused in front of five police officers. “My attacker assaulted me in the charge office in front of several police officers who did absolutely nothing. The accused grabbed me by my hair, shook my head and neck, and pushed me, while they all looked on as he was doing it. I wonder if the More than 20 Rent-A-Drum employees in impasse over the introduction of a new same would have happened if Walvis Bay were locked outside company payment system. it was a white man assaulting a

black woman in front of them. I doubt it,” Ms Sowden said in distress, shaking as she told the Namib Independent about her ordeal. The accused, who works for The Ministry of Transport, said that she can go to the Police Commissioner, the media, whoever she wants but he knows nothing will happen to him, because he has friends in high places. According to Sowden, the whole debacle started one Sunday after church. Sowden allegedly bumped into the accused’s car by accident and immediately got out of the car and profusely apologised. According to Sowden he immediately spoke to her in a very aggressive manner, calling her a “f*** stupid dumb white b****.” “I was very taken aback by his reaction, seeing that it was an accident and partly his fault because he had parked in a noparking zone area,” Sowden explained. According to Sowden, her attacker then told her to follow him to the police station to Continued on Page 3

In a speech at the ground-breaking ceremony on Tuesday, her Worship the Mayor, councellor Uilika Nambahu, stated that as part of a ground development project, this five-year strategic plan aims to make 2000 serviced erven available to the public for the 2013/1014 financial year. “Walvis Bay is entering one of its most exciting phases in terms of industrialisation and development. As a local authority it is imperative

that we do our part to facilitate this growth,” the Mayor stated. She continued to say that due to this growth in Walvis Bay there has been a “tremendous backlog in terms of serviced erven.” Regardless, the Mayor added that it is extremely challenging to make erven available, given the harsh conditions. Some of the challenges mentioned by the Mayor include the flattening of the dunes, a high water table and extremely high salt content. However, “for the sake of development and positive growth these

and other obstacles must simply be overcome,” the Mayor said. She further explained that a few months ago they strengthened their pledge to the community by launching their five-year strategic plan and are here today to deliver on that promise. According to the Mayor the availability of more erven also serves goal to provide land for all income groups, increase formalised housing and address backyard shacks. According to the Mayor, the exciting projects concerning land development will see four new

Land Rush for Walvis Continued from Page 1

township extensions be established in Walvis Bay. Narraville Extension 7 will see 220 new erven be developed by Rinu Construction and Development. Kuisebmond Extensions 5 and 6 will see 430 new erven and Meersig Extension 2 will see 250 new erven, both to be developed by JJD Earthmoving and Construction. Walvis Bay Extension 14 will see 70 erven, also to be developed by JJD Earthmoving and Construction. The

Mayor added that all new developments will have tarred roads and paved sidewalks, to the applause of the invited guests. The developments total N$115 million dollars of investment. The Mayor stated that eleven companies will be awarded erven to construct show houses. These houses are mainly constructed from alternative building materials specific to low-income groups.

After they have been evaluated by the Municipality they will be rolled out for mass construction. According to the developers, the show-house foundations have already been excavated. “I would like to see a future where everybody in Walvis Bay enjoys safe shelter and can contribute meaningfully to our overall wellbeing. With this groundbreaking ceremony, we are one step closer to that future,” the Mayor concluded.

report the incident, to which she replied that she will go later, because she had an appointment in Meersig, and that according to law she has 24 hours to report the incident. Thinking that the matter was sorted, she drove off. “Within minutes I found myself being chased by the accused. He was driving beside me, pushing me off the road. I eventually pulled to the side of the road in Meersig,” she explained. Sowden said that the accused jumped out of his car and started swearing at her, sticking his finger in her face and pushing his finger on her nose calling her a f**** stupid white b***. “He told me that us white b****** should start listening to men.” Eventually a local resident came to Sowden’s rescue. “We went to the police station and that is when I was assaulted by him in front of officers who later refused to give me their names,” she told the Namib Independent. After several failed attempt to press charges against her attacker, Sowden

finally got both commissioners involved in the case who promised her that the accused will be brought to justice. “Commissioner Kashupuulwa told me that they will change the charge from common assault to six other charges which were; racial abuse, aggravated assault, threatening, reckless and negligent driving, intimidation and causing problems (disorderly conduct) on government property,” Sowden explained. According to Sowden, however, every time she went to the police to see what was happening with the case and enquire as to when her attacker would be arrested, or when she needed to appear in court, they told her to be patient as they were working on it, and that they would contact her. “I eventually went to get some legal advice, and they told me that the police are playing for time, because in a year’s time the case will be thrown out. I then (for the first time) realised what was happening and that they were all just playing me. To

date, I am not sure what has happened with my case, or whether the accused has faced any consequences,” Sowden stressed. “I am still awaiting news from the police.” The Namib Independent set out to get some answers for Sowden, and ended up in the office of Detective Inspector Mwatongwe, who pulled the year-old file from his cabinet and indeed confirmed that the accused got away with a simple slap on the wrist. According to the docket the accused was summoned to court in December last year, where the prosecutor gave him the option to either plead guilty to common assault and pay a N$500 fine, or plead not guilty and wait for a court date. The accused pleaded guilty, paid his fine and off he went. “I never even knew that he was summoned and paid an admission of guilt. I will not accept this. I am not happy with the outcome at all. No one ever informed me that this was indeed the case. I want to lay a civil suit against

my attacker. Ever since the attack I have had problems with my neck, and serious anxiety,” Sowden reacted to the news. “Assaulting a person in full view of police officers is an indication that respect and fear of the police have been lost. If a person is not safe in the presence of the police, where will they be safe?” Sowden asked in desperation. She was equally surprised to learn that the docket had no evidence or even a mention of all the other charges Deputy Commissioner Kashupuulwa assured Sowden of being put on the list of charges. The Namib Independent posed the questions of the lost charges against the accused to Detective Inspector Mwatongwe. “As far as I know there was a lack of evidence on the other charges resulting in no further legal action being instituted,” he said.

Government Received International Applaud on Approved Phosphate Mining Moratorium Tanya Calitz Fisheries Minister, Bernard Esau, has received praise from various groups, local and international, for successfully lobbying cabinet to approve the moratorium on deep sea phosphate mining, which was announced in Walvis Bay last

week. The Deep Sea Mining (DSM) Campaign and various Environmental Groups have commended Namibian Government for approving Fisheries Minister Esau’s moratorium on phosphate Mining. “The Deep Sea Mining campaign applauds the Namibian

Government’s decision to; impose a moratorium for 18 months on marine phosphate mining; demand a scoping study to be finalised for the Environmental Assessment of phosphate mining in Namibian coastal waters; and call for a Strategic Environmental Assessment,” the letter to Namibian Government from

DSM read. According to the DSM Campaign, this decision places Namibia as a world leader in recognising that the precautionary principle must be adhered in regards to any seabed mining developments. “The seabed mining industry must prove with certainty what the impacts will be on the environment and provide solid proof that seabed mining activities will not impact the environment negatively,” said Helen Rosenbaum from the DSM Campaign. According to Minister Esau the Fishing Industry is a resource which should be protected and looked after. “The Ministry proceeds with caution and ensures that prospect mining will not compromise the fishing Industry in Namibia, which already employs thousands, when the phosphate Mining would only create approximately 300 jobs,” Esau said. To back this statement Esau said that the fishing industry in Namibian generates N$5.1 billion dollar annually. Another happy group is the Earth Organisation Namibia, who said that Namibian Government has made history by taking a landmark decision on behalf of the environment for current and future generations by banning marine phosphate mining for the next 18 months. “This is the first time that the Namibian Government has taken a stand such as this by making reference to the Environmental Management Act 2007, Section 3, which enshrines the precautionary principle in law.

"Cabinet has set a very clear precedent that the Namibian government takes this provision of law very seriously. "We thank them for their vision and wisdom. The Namibian government has also taken a stand in terms of the Constitution, Section 95(l) which states that the government must maintain ‘ecosystems, essential ecological processes and biological diversity of Namibia and utilization of living natural resources on a sustainable basis for the benefit of all Namibians, both present and future,” The Earth Organisation Namibia said. Currently there are two companies in Namibia who have Phosphate Mining Rights; Namibian Marine Phosphate and LL Namibia Phosphates. According to CEO of Namibia Phosphate Mining, Barnabas Uugwanga, there have been no official communication between the Namibian Government and their company. “I was informed of the approved moratorium by reading it in the media,” Uugwanga told the Namib Independent this week. “At this stage I cannot elaborate on the impact this moratorium will have on our company, because we do not yet know what the terms of the moratorium are,” he said. The company also said that they will prepare a press release on the announcement as soon as they have officially been informed by Government on the Moratorium.

Rent-a-Drum Fires 93% of

Workers for Insubordination Dorcas Mhungu More than 20 Rent-A-Drum employees in Walvis Bay were locked outside company premises by management following an impasse over the introduction of a new payment system. When the Namib Independent arrived at the premises, three members of the Namibian Police force were engaged in a mediatory dialogue with the workers crowded outside the locked gate. Ben Petrus, Vice President of the Namibia Seamen and Allied Workers Union to which the workers belong, said this year Rent-A-Drum told its employees that the payment date was changing from end of the month to the 15th. The workers had already rejected this change for various reasons. At the same time, a new fingerprint clocking-in system was introduced, coupled new with salary payment conditions. “The workers were told that the company, which has been paying a fixed rate of N$1,100-N$1,200 for 175 tons of material, was increasing the tonnage to 250 tons though not the remuneration for collecting the extra tonnage. “They were also informed that the company from hereon in will only pay six percent of the fixed amount if they did not meet the new target, and this is ridiculous. How could the company almost double the quantity?” quizzed Petrus. He said Rent-a-Drum had introduced the new payment date last year, and it had been rejected by the workforce. This year management

brought up the issue again, and the matter went for arbitration. A Mrs Hausiku issued a ruling in favour of the workers, endorsing a date between the 25th and 31st of the month as payment date. The employees demanded a contract detailing the new conditions and new clocking-in system but the company allegedly decided to summarily dismiss the workers when the workers went to the union. They were then locked outside. Petrus charged that the dismissal without a hearing was gross unfair labour practice. He then slammed Rent-A-Drum for treating its employees in all its branches unfairly. “This company is mistreating its workers unfairly in all its branches, including at the head office in Windhoek. We are representing the workers because they were also dealing with disposal of fish waste. What management is doing is rejecting unions representing the workers, and imposing unions that they have good relations with and that they can manipulate,” Petrus claimed. He told the Namib Independent that the union has written to management who must respond by Friday 27 September. Contacted for comment, Rent-a-Drum Human Resources Manager Rika Beukes confirmed that the company introduced a new clocking-in system last month. She said the workers were taught how to use it. According to Beukes, 23 employees out of the 25 at the Walvis Bay branch were affected by the dismissal. “The system was explained to them on more than one occasion and they were taught how to

use it from the 7th of August. They refused to participate and register on the system. The affected workers were charged with insubordination for refusing reasonable and lawful instructions. “On the 19th of September the affected employees were supposed to attend a hearing but they did not attend the hearing. The workers refused to participate. The hearing was conducted in their absence and nobody was there to represent the workers,” said Beukes and added that the workers were then issued with dismissal letters afterwards. Beukes explained that the issue of the 250 tons target was meant to be introduced as a production bonus and was not going to affect the current remuneration the workers were getting. Management had explained this to the workers. She said the company never implemented

it because the workers rejected the scheme. She laid out that if the workers did not attain the target they would only be paid their salaries but if they reached the target they would get six percent of their salaries added to their earnings. The scheme is on a sliding scale, Beukes said. Reacting to allegations that the company wants to hand impose what union the employees must belong to, Beukes said; “We have recognised Metal and Allied Workers’ Union (Manwu) and requested them to contact Walvis Bay branch to join but the Walvis Bay branch refused. The Windhoek workers belong to Manwu.”

Airport Terminal Expansion Underway, But What about the Runway?

Tanya Calitz The dream and promise of a new upgraded Walvis Bay Airport has been many years in the making since then President Sam Nujoma broke the news back in 2004. He announced the development plans during the Civil Nationwide Aviation Infrastructure Project launch at the Walvis Bay airport. Finally last week the community saw the start of the long awaited terminal development of the airport, with operations taking place in a

temporary tented facility next to the old airport terminal building. However, the airport’s upgraded runway, developed by the Spanish Construction company, INECO, is still not fully opened up and operational after almost ten years. “Currently we are only using 2065 meters of the 3440 meter landing strip,” said Walvis Bay Airport Manager Deogratia Tjihukununa. According to Tjihukununa the Spanish construction company responsible for the runway expansion development project has done a sub-standard job, and has to this

day not rectified their mistakes. “It is now up to the Ministry of Works and Transport push the issue and ensure that the runway gets fixed, so that it can be fully operational with the new terminal developments currently underway,” Tjihukununa told the Namib Independent, sitting in his temporary office at the airport earlier this week. Pressing Airport Manager Tjihukununa for answers as to why the airport development project has had so many delays, he referred the Namib Independent to Namibian Airports Company

(NAC) Management for further queries. “I do not wish to elaborate on what caused delays with the terminal development of the airport. All I can say is that there were some legal obligations that hindered the development from operating smoothly.” According to Tjihukununa, pilots landing on the upgraded runway after the construction of the runway strip complained that it was uneven and seemed unstable. “Airport Management then investigated these claims, and found that this was unfortunately the case,” he said. Tjihukununa explained that many operators have shown serious interest in providing their services to Namibia utilising the airport, but with the upgraded runway still closed off and the development of the terminals only starting now, it is not possible to manage bigger operations from the airport. According to Tjihukununa there is a huge demand for cargo ex- and import services, but until the new developments are not completed they cannot accommodate such operations. “On request from the fishing sector, we are also busy constructing a cold storage facility and warehousing at the airport to accommodate the fishing sector at a later stage for exports of seafood products. This development is done by Zillion Investments and currently underway.” Despite all the obstacles and unanswered questions as to the reasons for the delays, Tjihukununa seems positive about the way the airport is heading. “By 2015 we will be able to accommodate about 250 passengers per minute and have big aircrafts like the airbus land at our port,” he said.

SAIMSA Games Vendors

Demand Retribution Lavrenty Repin Food stall owners have been left out in the cold at the SAIMSA Games after a conflict of interest with the event’s organisers, Conference Link and Swakopmund Municipality. A rushed meeting on Tuesday afternoon was organised by the food stall owners to find a solution after their businesses suffered a dreadfully slow and unsuccessful opening day of the SAIMSA games. According to one SME owner, they were told that the demand is expected to be high so a large quantity of food must be prepared. “I bought ten sheep in anticipation of 4000 people, I haven’t sold one yet,” continues the distraught lady who wishes to stay anonymous. Another food stall reported selling four hotdogs and two biltong bags for the entire day. The SME’s blamed the municipality for privatising catering to only a handful of companies. “They (catering companies) serve the participants breakfast, lunch and dinner so when they come here they’re not hungry,” said another distressed owner, while also pointing out that due to sport games scattered at various venues the attendance becomes very poor. It was also stressed during the meeting that the SME’s had to pay a fee of N$500 per stall, yet they haven’t received any schedule program or security assistance. “No one tells us what time the games end or when it is time to pack up.” The meeting was held as other catering companies were leaving, while the food stands had apparently not been informed that no more games will take place at the stadium for the day and continued with food preparations. Mr Eddy Angula, a volunteer for the Municipality who was passing by, tried to calm the crowd down. “We were striving for people within the community to gain from this project,” Mr Angula stressed. No other organiser had showed up, much to the displeasure of the food stall vendors who demanded their money back and compensation for the losses incurred. An emergency meeting was set up on Tuesday night to combat the crisis. Speaking to the Namib Independent, SAIMSA Games spokesman and Chairman of the LOC, Mr Benneth Khaibeb, said that

they created an opportunity for the public but they made no guarantees. “It’s just like the Christmas stores, we allocated space that people could apply for and pay N$500 for the week.” Mr Khaibeb denied that the food stall vendors

were encouraged to buy a certain quantity of food in anticipation of a large attendants. In regards to the catering companies involved, he said it was a municipal initiative aimed at making the participants more comfortable. He also said that in some

venues games ended earlier than expected but the organising committee decided to move the soccer matches from Walvis Bay to Swakopmund venues to accommodate the vendors. On Wednesday some food vendors were seen packing up their stalls.

Significant Grants Awarded

at “The Evening of The

Coastodians” Gala Dinner Lavrenty Repin

On Friday the Namibian Coast Conservation and Management Project (NACOMA) awarded numerous grants, scholarships and awards as part of the Custodian Environmental Biodiversity week. The gala dinner rounding off the week was held at the Swakopmund Hotel and Casino Resort and attended by Erongo Regional Governor, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay Mayors and various prominent environmentalist. The NACOMA project praised and acknowledged the work of both “Honorary Coastodians” and “honorary law enforcement officers”. “The Honorary Coastodians are those individuals who have significantly contributed to the protection of the environment,” said the Minister of Environment and Tourism, Hon. Uahekua Herunga during his opening speech. He also outlined the various environmental challenges faced by Namibia including threats such as “climate change, uncontrolled tourism activities, unplanned mining activities and infrastructure development”. The fund-raising gala, which aimed to solicit funds for environmental students, handed out Coastodian awards to; Bronwen Currie, a renowned employee at the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources; Estelle Rubow, who worked as a tourism officer as the Municipality of Henties Bay and Peter Bridgeford, a well-known environmentalist and retired warden at the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Mr Rob Braby, the Coordinator for the NACOMA project, spoke heartedly of their environmental achievements over two decades at the coast. NACOMA also funded four students to join the ranks of environmental practitioners. The scholarships were handed out to La-Toya Shivute, Kaatri Brumfit, Simon

Iyambo and Kornelia Iipinge. Rob Braby called the students “environmental champions with a heart for conservation”. Finally, NACOMA handed out grants to organisations and companies involved in environmental projects around Namibia. This included N$1.5 million for DNP Infrastructure, N$450,000 for the Kuiseb Delta Development Trust, a further N$450,000 for the Walvis Bay Bird Paradise and N$2.25 milllion for the Khorixas Information Kiosk project. Rob Braby also introduced and congratulated the new 2013/2014 Mr and Ms Coastodian, two Westside students, Leveenia Shigwedha and Leo-JR Paulus.

Bones, Not Half a

Body, Found on

Dolphin Park Beach A national newspaper reported earlier this week that the NACOMA organised clean-up project that was conducted last Saturday on the beach between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay

stumbled upon a body in the Dolphin Park vicinity. It has since been confirmed that indeed remains were found, but these were “very old bones,” Erongo Police Commissioner Nelumbu told the

Namib Independent. He also said that the forensic team was called in and has since sent the bones for testing “to find out if they are even human, or whether it is just animal remains,” the Commissioner stated.

New Studio, New Producer,

New West Coast FM Lavrenty Repin

The fresh and new addition to the West Coast FM team is talented Rainer Von Hatten, who is spearheading an exciting new project for Swakopmund, the opening of a professional recording studio. Considering the increasing number of musicians that stem from the coast, this studio is as equally exciting as it is overdue. Anyone in the music industry will tell you that no matter what the bells and whistles your studio

Rainer understands this as well as anyone and outlines the importance of a good producer, for both musicians and radio stations. “As a producer you know what the end point will be before you’ve even begun, that makes a difference. For instance, West Coast FM was struggling to find an identity to their sound, that is what a sound engineer or producer strives to do.” Rainer, who began his music career on the set of

He hopes to transform West Coast FM, while focusing on establishing a working recording studio for the Swakopmund community. The studio aims to benefit not only musicians but all artists and companies, from those seeking original adverts to film production. According to Rainer, artists from the coast have to travel to expensive producers in Windhoek and they often give up on the music business before they even find a sound that suits them. “We worry first about the music and worry later about the money,” he says. “There is a huge community of artists here, we’d like to shine the light on them.” Rainer is an avid Hip-Hop enthusiast who has previously worked with South African label “Ill Major Movement” and, closer to home, Swakopmund star Miss H. of the Namibian Hip-Hop scene. He shares his frustration: “We’re neighbours to SA, where Hip-Hop was huge for the past 20 years, even during the apartheid era, yet the Namibian Hip-Hop scene is none-existent, we struggle here to be endorsed and we don’t come up with anything original.” Although the veteran producer admits that the industry has escalated tremendously since the time he started in 2005, he says that, “the majority of Hip-Hop cats are carbon-copies of each other!” In order to be a successful producer, Rainer says one needs plenty of patience, and passion. “When I come to the studio in the morning, I don’t look at it as a job, and that makes the day shorter, I guess”, he shares. West Coast FM is “a vision in progress” Rainer finds. “You have to put in a lot of work, you’re giving an opportunity to create something from nothing. I basically come in every day and do what I love to do.” Like many producers, Rainer is also an aspiring musician, but admits that it is difficult to balance between the two roles: producer and artist. “There was a time I thought 'I want to be a star!' Now I’m working on my music on the sideline.” He describes his music as a mix of folk and electro, although like any experienced musician, he is cautious of placing a label on his art. He draws inspiration from, among others, Bob Dylan, and has dubbed his musical style absurdly – ApplePie Melancholy, “because when I hear folk music I imagine apple pie!” The 29-year-old, who has made Swakopmund his home less than a month ago is determined to leave his mark, and although he specialises in sound production, music is clearly what drives him. “As long as I have my guitar, I’ll keep doing music.”

Local Art Expo Profit Share to Go to Jonah Home Siglinde de Villiers

The annual Walvis Bay Arts and Crafts Expo, which started on Monday, decided to donate 15 percent of their profits to the Jonah Home. At the opening ceremony on Monday night the Arts Association decided that 15 percent of their profits will be donated to the Jonah Home. According to Morgan Matthews, they have 20 exhibitors displaying their impressive arts and crafts in 55½ square metres of space. “The purpose of this exhibition is to promote Namibian art. A lot of the art sold in Namibia like the wooden carvings, sculptures and painted fabric, is labelled as Namibian art but it is not really Namibian. Often, they actually originate from the far north like Angola and Zimbabwe,” Matthews said. This year the exhibition includes a great variety of crafts, ranging from hand-painted silk scarves, toys, puzzles, ornaments made from wood, fabric dolls, hand painted glass, handmade cards to embroidered items, candles, clay faces on fire tiles, crochet items and beautifully decorated kitchenware. The exhibition is open until 5 October from 10h00 to 18h00 at the Lagune Cafe, Walvis Bay.

Good Turnout at Harbour’s

End Art Exhibition

The Harbour’s End Gallery hosted its art exhibition opening night on Wednesday, enjoying a lot of support from local folk, despite the rain. The exhibition will be on for the next week, displaying only local artists' work. Gallery owner Liz Visser’s work is also on display. Other artists' work being displayed at the exhibition include; Heidi Louw, Gidget Hart, Sue Mitchinson, and Ronel Pretorius. Lyon des Sables Restaurant treated the guest with some lovely snacks and wine at the opening.

Jonah Home Shows Off New Renovations

Siglinde de Villiers The newly renovated Jonah Home continues to be a safe haven for children and can continue its growth through the assistance of the good Samaritans of town. This year the Jonah Home, which looks after vulnerable children, has undergone quite a few changes to improve the overall conditions of the safe haven, starting with new management and eventually a whole new look for the home. The Namib Independent decided to pay them a visit earlier this week to see the newly renovated home. “The Jonah home accommodates children that have been removed from their homes through court orders,” Sonja Blaauw explained. According to her, the Jonah Home currently houses twelve children from 6 – 13 years of age. This includes *Samuel (pseudonym), their beloved Downs Syndrome child. “We try to let these children grow up just as they would in a

normal family,” she continued. “Apart from school we also encourage them to partake in all kinds of extra-mural activities. These, like the extra classes, are usually sponsored by different institutions.” Sonja also stated that they encourage the children to maintain contact with their families and visit them during vacations. “We work very closely with the social workers, who supervise these

visits.” According to Sonja, they are very dependent on donations. “We receive an allowance per child from the government to cover the basic expenses. "The beds we sanded down ourselves and gave them a new coat of varnish. Mattresses, sheets and curtains were donated. However,” she continued “we still have a great need for books, toys and furniture.”

Servest Catering Commits to the Community of Arandis

By enforcing a policy that ensures the maximum recruitment of local people to project sites, Servest Catering aim to contribute to the alleviation of unemployment, poverty and associated social problems in the areas they work in. Their declared commitment is the creation of opportunities for local people to work on the regeneration of their own neighbourhoods, boosting the local economy and helping to secure a healthy long term future for themselves and their families. The company believes that the success in the fight against unemployment and poverty requires the mobilisation and support of all resources available, including and especially at a local level. There is increasing concern about the breakdown of many local communities devastated by joblessness and social exclusion. The individuals and groups most affected – those who risk becoming long-term unemployed, those lacking skills, the socially disadvantaged, elderly and disabled – are increasingly marginalised, excluded from mainstream society and the labour market. The company’s employment and localisation policies have been broadened to encompass

local renewal, the re-integration of the socially excluded, gender equality and the generation of social capital through local development, including that of the local supply chain. The idea is to restore mutual trust and local commitment, to support the common good through collective action. A Labour Desk Work Group and Labour Desk, represented by key stakeholders, is established to guide the recruitment process of local labour to the project, in the best interests of the community and the project. The Desk takes control of local applications for work and the supply of personnel for selection. Advertisements will be posted on community notice boards and in local newspapers. Open days where job seekers are able to gather information, complete application forms and undergo interviews will facilitate the process. Should the timing be appropriate, local secondary and tertiary education institutions shall be targeted to attract the school leaver / graduate. As the Work Group includes local community leaders with an understanding of the locally-available resources, members are able to visit areas around the project with the

intention of registering employment seekers, maximising the use of local labour. All applicants shall be thoroughly screened and scored against the relevant job specification to ensure the selection of suitable candidates. In most cases, job roles requiring unskilled or semiskilled employees are found to be suitable for those who do not possess any work experience or educational qualifications. At peak, Servest Catering expects to employ a total of 335 staff on the project, of which 302 would fall into the unskilled or semi-skilled categories, totalling 90% of the total staff compliment, ideally originating from the community of Arandis and working outwards as supply is exhausted. Suitable opportunities for such applicants include the need for 65 housekeepers, 40 laundry attendants, five yard cleaners, 177 kitchen cleaners / food service assistants and 15 ablution cleaners. In instances where a job role has a particular skill or knowledge requirement, only candidates who meet this requirement will be considered by the company. In roles where literacy and numeracy are required, applicants

will have to undergo the relevant assessments to determine competency. Only applicants having the necessary competency level shall be appointed. At the same time, Servest Catering are dedicated to keep the entrance requirements to an absolute minimum. It is their aim to recruit those with inherent talent and not necessarily skill, since they recognise that one is able to learn skill but not talents such as service orientation, work ethic, energy and enthusiasm. The recruitment effort in general focuses on this principle. Development interventions include ABET Programmes, (Adult Basic Education and Training – literacy and numeracy), job related skills, health and safety, service excellence and life skills such as HIV / AIDS education. The benefit of local employment, in this case focusing specifically on the community of Arandis, is vast. It gives priority to hiring local people with the right skills for local jobs and further, offers training and development initiatives for such persons. It provides employment opportunities to help regenerate the area where new jobs are most needed; injecting much needed economic stimulus and subsequent

community upliftment to the area. Local communities and residents are kept informed of the success of project initiated interventions, and community issues are responded to immediately. The company’s awareness programme provides critical access to HIV / AIDS education. Servest Catering will further address alcohol and drug abuse through the implementation of stringent employment rules, criteria and policies. Selecting labour from the local talent pool assists in minimising the impact of the project workers on public health infrastructure and services by enabling access to primary healthcare and emergency medical services on-site. Such a local employment strategy discourages foreign job seekers from migrating to the project area on their own initiative as it further deals with the development of informal settlements by engaging with local law enforcement and local communities and developing stringent worker transport and employment rules and criteria. Without question, the emphasis for Servest Catering has to be on tangible job creation and subsequent skills transfer, economic participation by locals and the re-distribution of wealth.

Arandis - Heart of Erongo Red

Erongo Red is bracing itself for the rapid growth of Arandis town. Currently, a consultant is carrying out a load flow study to determine the electricity consumption in Arandis, said Ben Nangombe, Public Relations and Marketing Officer Erongo Red. Arandis town is the nearest town to the numerous mining operations in Erongo region and of late has become the town of choice for most investors in the region. Lithon Consulting was appointed to do the Load Flow Study, Design and Upgrading of Intake Substation. “This means establishing the consumption for the entire town and, as the town is growing, to establish what the anticipated consumption is so that we can start to upgrade our systems. Erongo Red are the suppliers of electricity in Erongo region and Arandis, by being in the region, also gets its electricity from us,” Nangombe laid out. Erongo region is the hub of fishing and mining industries. Many people come to look for work as more mines open up, but with it comes increased consumption of electricity and the need to cater for that increase in demand. Erongo RED is also planning to upgrade streetlights in Arandis, which is scheduled to commence in January or February 2014 at the cost of N$750 000. The power utility is executing a number of projects for the region and some specific to Arandis.

The company is busy with preparations to build another office in Arandis town following the closure of the tender on 25 July this year. Erongo Red is now evaluating the applications, said Nangombe. “Our aim is to have an office to serve customers in the area and to have a mini workshop where our electricians can work from,” he added. Erongo Red has apprentices from various vocational institutions whom it has given opportunities to gain practical skills through job attachment programmes with Erongo RED. Currently there are eleven students from various vocational training centres, including Namibia Institute of Mining Technology (NIMT) located in Arandis. Nangombe mentioned that, “In addition, we offer full study bursaries to bright young Namibians who wish to pursue degrees and diplomas from universities and colleges.” The students get experience from different business units like meter reading, construction, maintenance, and electrical engineering division. Some of the students are employed with Erongo Red after successfully completing their studies. Nangombe explained how employing the graduates is one way the organisation is contributing towards the reduction of the crippling unemployment rate in Namibia. “Our office in Arandis has full staff of two qualified electricians and meter readers for us to be able to provide efficient service to residents of Arandis. Once the new office is completed and depending on the growth of the town, the staff complement will be increased,” stated Nangombe. He said Arandis also profits from the social tariffs that benefit registered pensioners with Erongo Red accounts as well as consumers on the 30 Amp connection and disabled people receiving disability grants from government. Nangombe announced that Erongo Red is going to install the SCADA system in the entire region. The SCADA system is a software that is used to detect power outages by identifying where the outage is.

N$15 Mil Health Clinic Health is wealth, some people say and to this end, Arandis Town Council has a new N$15 million Primary Health Care Centre under construction. Construction of the Health Centre project started in mid-2013 and it is anticipated that the handover will take place between December this year and January 2014. The project has created 30 jobs for Arandis residents for both men and women and 25 jobs for professionals outside the town. While some women shun physical jobs like digging trenches and view such work as suitable for men, two women

were busy digging the foundation of the mortuary when the reporter visited the clinic under construction. The mortuary will accommodate six bodies. The modern Health Centre will have facilities found in major hospitals, including a waiting room for patients, HIV consulting room, Tuberculosis consulting room, adolescents consulting room and four general consulting rooms. The site foreman who showed the Namib Independent around said the Centre also has a testing room and multipurpose rooms, an in-patient room, observation room, casualty or emergency

room and a delivery room for pregnant mothers. The Centre has two twobedroom doctors’ houses that will have modern fitted four plate stoves and washing machines. Also in the complex are six one-bedroom units with an open plan kitchen/lounge. Washing machines will also be installed. The construction tender was awarded to Amupolo Construction owned by Erasmus Gabriel. With such attractive free accommodation, Arandis will no doubt see medical personnel scramble for placements in this town that has etched a definite success trail judging by the number of investors opening shop there. Arandis is the town nearest to major uranium and iron mines but due to lack of ideal and adequate infrastructure, the town was losing investment projects to Swakopmund. However, after waking up from years of slumber, the council has embarked on intensive investment lobby programs that are yielding positive results.

FNB Pledges Quality Service

Tienie Mouton, First National Bank (FNB) Regional Manager for the Erongo region, is hopeful that the bank will deliver quality service to the people of Arandis. Speaking at the official opening of the bank recently, he said the bank does not anticipate getting negative reports from the residents. “This new FNB branch will no doubt beautify and enhance the image of Arandis and I hope that the new facility will ensure that the residents of Arandis receive a fast, efficient and effective customer service from the FNB employees. “It will be a sad day when I have to receive dissatisfied residents in our office to complain about poor service from FNB. While we are celebrating this investment and achievement of the most innovative bank in the world, let us do so while focusing on the rural communities of Namibia.” The ceremony was attended by the Mayor of Arandis, Daniel Utapi Muhuura; CEO of Arandis Town Council, Florida Husselman; and CEO of FNB Namibia, Ian Leyenaar. Mr Dixon Norval, Head: Strategic Marketing & Communications at FNB Namibia, directed the opening ceremony.

'Here' SAY

What Do You Think We Can Do to Best Improve? - Education Systems - Health Systems - Poverty Jody “Public schools do not offer students enough in the aspect of preparing them for life after school. We also have a problem with the fact that we do not have enough schools to support our primary students that are moving onto high school. Schools first make space for their own students."

Elton "Our Education system needs attention. We are in need of more high schools and primary schools. There have been too many cases where schools have denied grade 8’s and 1’s due to the lack of space. If there were more public schools than we would not have this problem. We as a community should be there to assist these children and give them their right to education.”

Joy “The health system in this town is horrific or rather the state hospital. I think we are in need of more state hospitals and clinics. Our educations systems: I believe we need more primary schools, turn a house into a school instead of demolishing it and starting a super market.”

Meriam "There is a lack of primary schools, especially in Grade One. Parents are constantly worried about this matter and we receive the response “sorry there is just no space”. It’s always unpleasant to struggle with this matter. We could set up a few more schools instead of more business districts.” Sharon “Die enigste manier wat mens die probleme kan verbeter is om as 'n gemeenskap saam te werk. Daar moet meer staatsskole oop gemaak word om implekasies te verhoed. Die feit dat daar nooit plek is vir graad agt leerlinge nie. Dan is daar die gesondheids aspek, die staats hospitale is verwaarloos en daar moet meer aandag aan dit gegee word. Daar is te veel ander besighede wat aan die bou is en te min van dit wat werklik nodig is bv. Soos staats skole".

Caylan "Education should be free. Some parents cannot afford to pay school fees and in the end these children are left with no other choice but to find a job. However, we also do need more colleges to allow students to study in their home town and still work part-time to gain skills in the field that they are studying for, due to the fact most jobs require skills."

Rebecca "Our education system needs urgent attention. There have been too many cases where there is just not space for a student and then you as parent are forced to take your child to a private school or send them away to another town for school. Also teachers do not share a “studentteacher bond“ anymore; it has become more of a business than anything else. I believe that if we as a community can stand together than we could help to improve this problem.”

By American standards, the Volkswagen Golf–based Audi A3 is a little car. Not so in Europe, however, where the A3 is a legitimate family hauler. In other words, there is plenty of room in Audi’s European product portfolio for a car with tidier dimensions. Enter the A1, Audi’s third attempt at the true small-car segment. The A1 is based on the VW Polo platform, a model that, ironically, emerged in 1975 as the cheapo version of the short-lived Audi 50. Audi’s second attempt, the allaluminum A2, failed mostly because it was underpowered and overpriced at its launch in 1999. Today, the Luc Donckerwolke–styled A2 is gaining cult status, albeit a bit too late. End of history lesson. Mini Paved the Way This new take on a small-car entry is similarly upscale, only now there’s a market for it. For this, we can thank the Mini’s wild success. Both cars are similar in concept but vastly different in execution. If you are a fan of the United Kingdom with its Victorian mansions, Beefeaters, changing of the guard, and all, you’ll appreciate the Mini’s approach to automotive design. If Bauhaus is more your thing, you will gravitate toward the Audi A1, with its clean lines and technoid LED strips and taillights. The Polo heritage is successfully hidden, and a

“single frame” grille, previewed with the A8, predominates here, too. Despite being smaller than the A3, the A1 looks tough and ready to scrap with the cheeky Brit. Its track has been widened compared with the Polo’s, and the headlights have a somewhat menacing look, especially when equipped with the optional xenon lights, which come with an LED strip that successfully mimics the A8’s. Audi will even paint the roof pillars, which stretch from front to rear in one smooth arc, in a contrasting color for extra awesomeness. But does it back up this swagger with what’s under the hood? The A1 offers a choice of four turbocharged four-bangers: two diesel and two gasoline engines. The two variations

of the 1.6-liter TDI, which make 90 hp and 105 hp, pull the A1 forward with some authority and both get over 60 mpg in the European cycle. Petrolheads get a choice of a 1.2-liter, eight-valve engine producing 85 hp and a 1.4-liter 16-valver turning out 122 hp. Neither of these engines can muster enough power to jerk the car forward with much enthusiasm, and we actually found the weaker engine to be more convincing. It offers almost diesel-like torque at low and medium rpm but is more responsive and smoother. The 1.4 offers little meaningful extra oomph.

We sampled the 1.2 TFSI with the slick five-speed manual transmission and the 1.4 TFSI with its optional seven-speed dual-clutch box that delivers seamless shifts but none of the throttle blipping and general aural delight that Audi engineers bake into the TTS and S4. That said, the two gasoline-powered A1 versions, despite their lack of power, are fun to drive and serve up a sense of command and precision. Responsive Chassis, Expansive Options List This feeling of control is enhanced by the A1’s excellent chassis setup.

The electric power steering simulates a full hydraulic system with perfection and is very direct, too. Its aggressive ratio is complemented by Audi’s “electronic limited-slip differential”, which uses the stability-control system to brake wheels in order to generate forceful turn-in. It’s Audi’s version of the Volkswagen XDS system, and it comes on every A1, not just on top-of-the-line models, like at VW. The A1 is neutral up to the limit, at which point the ESP system kicks in briefly if noticeably. It’s a friendly warning that your backside was just saved, but it doesn’t sanction you by taking off more speed than necessary. There are two suspension setups. We like the standard suspension, and the sport suspension is even better in control and sharpness. Even so, it doesn’t beat you up. If you want to max out your credit card, you can load up the A1 with extras unheard of in this vehicle class. We already mentioned the LED and xenon lighting options; there are also a panoramic roof, keyless entry, a selection of large wheels, and some impressive infotainment options. The A1’s top system is from Bose and includes a 465-watt surroundsound system with 13 speakers plus a subwoofer. Audi has shoved the MMIplus system into the dashboard, complete with a 6.5-inch color screen, voice activation, and a 20GB hard drive for music storage. The level of integration is far superior to that of most other cars in any vehicle class. There’s one extra we’d wait for: the Polo GTI’s turbo- and supercharged 180-hp, 1.4-liter engine. One of the worst-kept secrets in Ingolstadt is the imminent arrival of an S1 with this twin-charged powerplant.

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.

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.”

Your Weekly Golf Update Mutual & Federal - 41 years in a row Last Saturday, Mutual & Federal sponsored for the 41st year in a row at Walvis Bay Golf Club, with 44 players taking part this year. The club’s oldest sponsor certainly did not hold back. Impie Brand, Manager of Mutual & Federal, practiced a few weeks in advance, but still did not get into the prizes for his own sponsored event, apart from a lucky draw that he gladly handed back to the players. Mutual & Federal also donated a prize that was auctioned during the evening and the club received good income thanks to Sergio who bought it. ”Impie, Mutual & Federal, we appreciate your continuous support and thank you for a great golfing day.” Nearest to Pins was Mathew Stander and Nardo Sardinha, respectively. Two Clubs was scored by: Emile Vilbert Andre Burger Duane “get a new handicap” Sanders with two of them Jan Liebenberg Winner of this Better Ball Stableford event was: 1st place Peet Botha and Quinten van Wyk on 50 points! Then came: 2nd Willie Venter and Kevin Wentzel on 47 points 3rd place Peter Lohmann and Keith Fulton on 46 points 4th place Bennie Lombard and Pietie Fox on 43 points 5th place Jason Barnard and Duane Sanders. Just for the record, Jason is a 9 handicap. What went wrong in this golfing world? Impie promised to be back next

The Rugby Championship Next Fixtures 28 September: South Africa vs. Australia, Newlands Cape Town at 17h00. The possibility of the return of Benn Robinson to the front row and the skipper James Horwill to the back row will definitely be a positive for the Australians. Horwill has shown in the past that he is the man for the moment and one of the best leaders around. The physicality he brings to the table will be a factor in the line-outs and they will be more competitive both there and in the tight play. Adrian Strauss will start at No 2 in place of the vindicated Bismarck du Plessis due to the rotating system of the Springboks. The Springboks are blessed here like in all the positions. Pieter Stef du Toit was called up to the squad together with the long overdue call-up of Juan de Jongh. This guy needs no introduction to the try line and he will be in my starting lineup any time! But, give Heineke Meyer the benefit of the doubt and let us see if the Springboks can maul the men from Down Under again. 29 September: All Blacks vs. Argentina, La Plata at 00h40.

year with a greater event. Make sure you are part of this longstanding supported event. Subs All of you have been duly warned regarding outstanding subs, in various e-mails, newspaper reports and during prize givings. Subs have to be paid by 30 September or you will be “cut” from the system. Moenie kom huil nie en moenie met stories kom nie… Sport Quiz The fundraiser of the Reformed Church on Friday is not taking place any more due to various reasons and arrangements the church has for the following week. Hope to see you still during this year. The Quiz will thus be held this Friday, 18h30 for 19h00. Teams are welcome to enter. Two players per team will cost you only N$50. Please give us indication if you will attend in order to prepare. We will have something to eat available at your own cost, but prizes for best teams will be available. The focus of the quiz will be on Coaches, Currie Cup, Super 15 and a few extras. All rugby questions, this time. If you watched Super 15 Rugby and Currie Cup, you will do well, otherwise study or try to get bonus point from the bar, as usual. This coming Saturday, the PISCS Medal is on again. This time JJ, you will have to play. See you all Friday evening at the quiz and Saturday on the fairway.

SAIMSA Games in Full Swing in Swakopmund

After an extravagant opening on Sunday, the SAIMSA games continue throughout the week battling windy and rainy weather. Although attendance is low, the teams are in great competitive spirits with games taking place in stadiums and on the beach. The closing ceremony is scheduled to take place on Friday at the Vineta Central Stadium, followed by a concert in the evening at the Mondesa Stadium. though, because they never took their foot of the paddle and nearly whipped Province in their own backyard.

the Bulls are not at full capacity but they are also not playing for 80 minutes. These guys are professionals and there should be no excuses.

Points for Province: Nic Groom with a try. Conversions: Coleman - 1 Penalties: Coleman - 3; Catrakilis - 1 Talk about twisting the dagger. The Griquas: Try by Nico Scheepers. Also Pumas have got no variety in their converted by him. game. They will play enterprising Penalties: Brummer - 1 and Gouws - 1 rugby for the first 20 minutes or so, but if that does not have the desired effect 21 September: Sharks vs. Cheetahs 50-26 they will simply start playing the man. It happens every time and is becoming The Sharks played without Jean Deysel boring. I believe they do not belong and Jacques Botes but welcomed back Marcel in this competition because they are Coetzee from the Springbok squad. He has simply not good enough. not played a competitive game since mid-June but his tempo and willingness should be an The Currie Cup example for all aspiring flanks out there.

Kicks for the Bulls: A penalty each from Jantjies and Boshoff with two convertions from Jantjies. Lions: Tony Jantjies with three conversions.

20 September: Western Province vs Griquas 19-13 Western Province simply made too many mistakes on this day. Given, it was a rather wet day and it was never going to be attractive rugby but that would just be an excuse for poor rugby by lavishly paid young men. The new scrumhalf sickness appears to be that if you want to pass the ball to your fly half you must take your time and pull the ball back as far as you can in order to give the opposition flank ample time to slap the ball out of your hand. This is happening at international level as well as our school rugby right here in Walvis Bay. It is frustrating to see how it spoils a good game. The Western Province forwards looked out of place and the squad rotating system nearly backfired. Credit must be given to Griquas,

The Sharks dominated possession and territory from the start and the pressure definitely got to the Cheetahs. The Sharks simply nullified any effort from the Cheetahs to gain territory and pinned them back in their own half. I believe that I could see Naka Drotske growing balder by the minute due to the ridiculous amount of errors that the Cheetahs made. The Sharks scored seven tries with two from Lwasi Mvovo. Fred Zeilinga with three penalties and three conversions. Cheetahs: two tries with one penalty and one conversion. 21 September: Bulls vs. Lions 26-35 The Lions with five tries to four. The Jantjies brothers squared off against each other in what was a pulsating game. We know that
