Rough sailing for Pres. Geingob and Swapo in the 2019 Elections Amidst a poor performance this is the best remedy for our Namibian House The Namibian House, a popular metaphor coined by President Hage Geingob when he took office as the country's third Head of State in 2014, can at last come to full potential.

President Hage Geingob will be leading Namibia as Head of State for the next five year political cycle 21 March 2020 to 21 March 2025, following his victory in the 27 November Presidential Election. The 2019 Elections are regarded the most tightly contested Namibian election since the 1989 Constituent Assembly Election in which Swapo could only gather 57 % of the national vote.

For the first time since Namibia's post-independence politics the ruling Swapo Party will not be the only decision maker in the Namibian house, as the opposition deprived it of it two thirds majority in the National Assembly during the 27 November Presidential and National Assembly Elections.

President Geingob elected second term as Head of State


When President Geingob inaugurated the new container terminal on reclaimed land in the port of Walvis Bay during August this year, little did anyone know that his popularity as President of the Republic of Namibia would take such a dip that he actually lost the Presidential race against independent candidate Panduleni Ithula in Erongo and also the Khomas Region. Not only was it President Geingob who had to keep afloat in stormy waters, but the Swapo Party of Namibia also took a dent at the 2019 polls, with the ruling party losing its two thirds majority in the National Assembly. President Geingob’s popularity took a dive from 86,7 % in 2014 to 56,3 % in the 27 November Elections.

Amidst a poor performance this is President Geingob elected the best remedy for our Second Term as Head of State Continued from page 1 Namibian House Continued from page 1 Just like a real house, the metaphorical house is not healthy if only the father takes decisions and the wife and children have to live with these decision whether they want or not. Swapo lost its two thirds high ground in the National Assembly by a very thin, yet a decisive, margin of less than one percentage point. One way forward is for Swapo to consult with the opposition parties in the National Assembly. It is expected to create a healthy, balanced and more broad-based debate on Namibia's challenges. Apart from consulting with political opponents, Swapo can also rely on various forms of coalitions with some of the opposition parties if it wants to steer decision making. The opposition parties, with the Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) as the official opposition, will be controlling approximately one third of the National Assembly (33 seats against Swapo's 66 seats), come 21 March 2020 when the new five-year Parliament takes the reins. But what counts for the goose, counts for the gander. Equally opposition parties too can form coalitions of sort to steer decision making and even lobby for Swapo parliamentarians to vote for or against decisions in the National Assembly. And then: voters who think it is time to rest must understand it is not yet over. The Regional Council and Local Authority Council elections is slated for the first quarter of 2020 and it there where opposition parties are determined to further diminish Swapo's overwhelming political might. Opposition parties are fired up and wants to break Swapo's majority in the fourteen Regional Councils and the various local authority councils (the City of Windhoek, towns, villages and settlements). The Swapo Party is expected to gear up for next year's elections leaving not a single stone unturned to reverse the opposition's unprecedented gains in the 27 November elections. Opposition parties need to understand now, better than ever, very hard work lies ahead if the gains of 27 November is to be further capitalised upon. That includes absentee voters, people with invalid voter cards and prospective new voters that must realise the time has come that each and every vote counts – whether you are a Swapo voter or an opposition voter. And that is what it is all about: democracy for a better Namibia where of the country's 2, 4 million people can feel at home [and relevant] in the Namibian House. The Electoral Commission of Namibia announced the election results on Saturday evening in what can best be described as neutral and business-like. The crunch moment, at the Commission's headquarters in Windhoek was attended by President Hage Geingob, the other presidential candidates, all political parties, ECN personnel, members of the diplomatic corps and also international election observers. All attention was cast on the Chairperson of the ECN, Advocate Notemba Tjipueja who declared the elections free and fair and then went on to provide a detailed breakdown of the electoral profile (voter turnout, age analysis of voters etc.) A total of 820 227 voters cast their ballots in the National Assembly Elections. The Swapo Party of Namibia was declared the winner with 65, 5 % of the vote and 63 seats in the National Assembly (536 861 votes) and the Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) the official opposition with 16, 6 % and 16 seats (136 576 votes). All People's Party (APP) 2 seats in Parliament; Christian Democratic Voice (CDV) 1 seat; Lanless People's Movement (LPM) 4 seats; Namibia Economic Freedom Fighters (NEFF) 2 seats; National Unity Democratic Organization of Namibia (NUDO) 2 seats; Rally For Democracy and Progress (RDP) 1 seat; Republican Party of Namibia (RP) 2 seats; SWANU of Namibia 1 seat and United Democratic Front (UDF) 2 seats. The Congress of Democrats (CoD), Namibia Democratic Party (NDP); Namibia Patriotic Front (NPF) and the Workers Revolutionary Party (WRP) did not receive seats in the National Assembly as these parties could not get enough votes. The total of 14 210 voters who voted for these parties which did not get seats in the National Assembly were pooled and divided among the bottom performing parties which did make it to the National Assembly. A full extraction of the ECN's statement appears on page 5 of today's edition.

The President faced a steep challenge from independent candidate Dr Panduleni Itula, but who at the end had to concede defeat with only 29, 4 % of the vote against Dr. Geingob's 56, 3 % of the vote. Here are few facts that emerged from the Presidential Elections. Facts that will be re-evaluated by all political parties in the run-up to next year's Regional Council and Local Authority Elections. ·President Geingob's overall popularity plunged from 88 % in the 2014 Elections to 56, 3 % in 2019. The President's popularity plunge runs semiparallel to the Swapo Party of Namibia's plunge from 82 % in 2014 to 65, 5 % in 2019. ·The Erongo Region and the Khomas Region are the only two of the country's 14 Regions where Itula was victorious attracting the most Presidential votes. ·President Geingob's popularity only remained more or less consistent in Kavango-West and Kavango-East, compared to the 2014 Elections. All the remaining regions saw President Geingob's support severely spiralling down. In Kavango-West President Geingob attracted 88, 11 % of the vote, comparted to 2014 when it was at 94, 36 % In Kavango-East, President Geingob attracted 79, 60 % of the vote (86, 28 % in 2014). In the traditional Swapo super-strongholds, also known as the “Four O's”, support for President Geingob plunged. In Omusati President Geingob attracted 74, 56 % (99, 19 % in 2014); Ohangwena 72, 29 % (99, 15 % in 2014); Oshana 49, 56 % (97, 40 %) and Oshikoto 63, 01 % (98, 49 % in 2014).

Truck overturns

A Zimbabwean truck driver lost control of his truck on Friday, as he was swerving out for animals on the road. The truck overturned, totally blocking the road. The accident occurred on the B2 between Karibib and Okahandja. Brain Charumbira (26), sustained slight injuries and was transported to the Usakos state hospital.

“Meersig is becoming a frustrating place to live” Meersig residents are becoming increasingly fed-up with problems they encounter in this suburb. Some problems they say are caused by fellow residents who are not interested to clean up and keep their places tidy and also the local authority they feel is dragging feet on some issues. The major problems pointed out are: the filthy state of the tree lanes along 11th Street North and 7th Street East. People are simply dumping their household waste and building rubble along these tree lanes. Wind carries the litter back into the suburb. In other instances trucks are left parked outside premises for months on end. So much so that the graders must scrape the streets around these stationary vehicles. The municipality of Walvis Bay is also accused of not doing enough to control sand encroachments and the traffic authority is not doing enough to ensure builders are not sacrificing road safety when sand, gravel and bricks are placed on the pavements. In some instances building materials are even placed down on bends in the road, creating potentially dangerous road hazards. Other are complaining about sink holes that are left unattended for weeks and months on end. In many instances sewer water floods the streets from these sink holes. A spot on the outer bound of Meersig there is also a growing pool of water which residents say are either sewer water or semipurified effluent which is dumped there. The water is smelly and the bad odors are carried by the prevailing wind across Meersig.

ECN - Final Statement The Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN), is the exclusive body that is mandated to direct, supervise, manage and control the conduct of elections and referenda in a free, fair, independent, credible, transparent and impartial manner. With a great sense of satisfaction and accomplishment, we as ECN can report to the Namibian nation that our elections were free, fair and credible. We are therefore delighted to inform you that for this Presidential and National Assembly elections, the ECN registered 1,358,468 (One Million, Three Hundred and Fifty-eight Thousand and Four Hundred and Sixty-Eight) voters. The voter turnout for the Presidential Elections is 826 198 (Eight Hundred and TwentySix Thousand One Hundred and Ninety-Eight) which is 60.8% of the total number of registered voters. For the National Assembly Elections, the voter turnout is 820 227 (Eight Hundred and Twenty Thousand Two Hundred and Twenty-Seven) which represents 60.4% of the number of registered voters. Before I proceed any further, Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to sincerely thank our key stakeholders, the political parties and the independent candidate as well as their supporters for the political campaigns which took place in a calm and tolerant atmosphere, ensuring that peace prevailed in the run up to the elections. As a country, we must be profoundly grateful to our Creator, for the fact that once again, our beautiful nation and its people, despite our differences and our cultural diversities, we managed to hold peaceful elections. In this regard, ladies and gentlemen we are all aware that peaceful elections without violent incidents are a rare commodity. The general adherence to the Code of Conduct for political parties was indeed welcome and points to the maturing and consolidation of democracy in Namibia. The hundreds of thousands of Namibian voters should be commended for exercsing patience in waiting for their turn to cast their vote at

various polling stations across the country. The commitment to democracy is not only demonstrated by the number or regularity of elections conducted, but more so by the way ordinary citizens are willing to sacrifice their time, energy and convenience to make sure that they register themselves as voters and turn up at polling stations to cast their vote. We are gathered here today to solemnly witness the announcement of the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly elections, an occasion marked by the invocation and observance of legal provisions. In terms of the Electoral Act, the announcement of results is provided for in terms of Section 109 subsection (1) for Presidential election, and Section 110 subsections (1), (2) and (3) for the National Assembly elections. Engaging in a healthy competition is a sign of a vibrant democracy. In fact, it is universally accepted that elections entail competition and choice. It entails candidates vying and canvassing votes and voters making informed choices through the proverbial ballot box. In that sense, a healthy competition is not only good for democracy, but the plurality of voices and choices is necessary if the consolidation of democracy is to be realized. It is very evident that democracy has taken root in Namibia. We must, at all costs, guard against unhealthy competition which can lead us down the path of destruction. We must jealously guard the prevailing peace and stability in our country because socioeconomic development and nation building depend on that. It is therefore heartening to witness democracy in action in Namibia. We have embraced plurality as demonstrated by the number and diversity of

the presidential candidates and political parties participating in this election. It is worth noting that for the first time in our electoral history, we have an Independent Candidate and a female Presidential Candidate. I will fail in my duty as the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission of Namibia, if I omit to mention our polling officials and the sacrifices they made to facilitate the polling process. Furthermore, I wish to recognise the high level of commitment, professionalism and dedication of our Commissioners, CEO and staff. I therefore dedicate the ECN's preparedness and delivery of free, fair and transparent elections to them. The 2019 elections have also shown an increasing trend of young people willing to participate in the electoral process. A total number of 700, 648 young people representing 52% of the voters on the final register, registered themselves as voters. A further analysis has revealed that 403, 106 representing 30% of registered voters were Born-Frees, young people who were born after our independence in 1990. It also revealed that 8, 623 young persons who registered themselves as voters, and representing 0.6% of the registered voters were Millennials, while a total number of 128,190 persons who registered themselves, and representing 9.4% of registered voters were young people who turned 18 years of age since the last Presidential and National Assembly elections in 2014. In the past, young people were associated with voter apathy but the observed new trend seems to validate the effectiveness of voter and civic education campaign specifically targeting the youth. These are encouraging signs suggesting that our young people are interested in the political affairs of their country.

Every electoral processes will experience its own challenges and in the interest of transparency, the ECN advices that some of the delays experienced in the announcement of these results were due to ensuring that any discrepancies were identified and rectified. In particular, it was noted on receipt of documentations from Returning Officers in the following Constituencies: Otjiwarongo Constituency Team 303; Opuwo Rural Constituency Team 311; Moses Garoeb Constituency Team 115 and Eenhana Constituency - Team 310 That the Returning Officers of these constituencies at the time of tabulation of results at the Collation centres omitted to include the results of the respective aforementioned polling stations. Hence results from these polling stations were not included in constituency results declared by the Returning Officers at these collation centres. Following the detection of these anomalies this afternoon, the Chief Electoral Officer undertook corrective measures by directing the concerned Returning Officers to make requisite statements under oath and to rectify the discrepancies on the announcement forms and paste the rectified forms at the respective collation centres. Please allow me to make a formal announcement of the Presidential and National Assembly Elections in accordance with Sections 109 and 110 of the new Electoral Act, Act No.5 of 2014. I am delighted to announce that we have received all the results counted from all polling station from all 121 Constituencies and determined in accordance with

the relevant provisions of the Act. Furthermore, the results from the Special Voting Day conducted both at foreign missions and in-country on 13th November 2019 have been included in final count. Ladies and Gentlemen, rest assured that the ECN has honoured its responsibilities regarding the preparations and holding of the Presidential and National Assembly elections of which results I will now announce in accordance with the sections of the Electoral Act I have referred to above. 1. THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION: In accordance with Sections 109 subsection (1) of the Electoral Act which states that, upon receiving the results of the Presidential Elections, the Chairperson of the Commission shall in the prescribed manner announce them by making known the total number of votes counted in respect of each candidate and that the Chairperson shall also declare the candidate determined in accordance with subsection (2) to have accumulated the highest votes duly elected as President with effect from such dates determined by the Namibian Constitution. A total of eleven (11) candidates contested the Presidential Elections. I will now announce the results that candidates obtained according to alphabetic order of the parties they represented in the Presidential race and the Independent Candidate: VOTES: Apius Auchab (UDF) 115 votes (2,7 %); Dr. Hage Gottfried Geingob (Swapo Party of Namibia) 464 703 (56.3 %); Dr. Tangeni lijambo (SWANU) 5 959 (0,7 %); Dr.

Panduleni Fillemon Bango Itula (IC) 242 657 (29,4 %); Mr. Henry Ferdinand Mudge (RP) 4 379 (0,5 %); Ms. Esther Utjiua Muinjangue (NUDO) 12 039 (1,5 %); Mr. Epafras Jan Mukwilongo (NEFF) 1 026 (0,1 %); Mike Ratoveni Kavekotora (RDP) 3 515 (0,4 %); Shixwameni Ignatius Nkotongo (APP) 3 304 (0,4 %); Mr. Bernadus Clinton Swartbooi (LPM) 22 542 (2,7 %); McHenry Venaani (PDM) 43 959 (5,3 %). It is thus my honour to declare Dr. Hage Gottfried Geingob who in accordance with Section 109 (2) of the Electoral Act has accumulated a total of 464 703 votes representing 56.3% percentage of the total votes cast in the presidential race, duly elected as President with effect from such dates determined by the Namibian Constitution. 2. NATIONAL ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS: A total number of fifteen (15) political parties contested the National Assembly Elections. We have listed the parties alphabetically together with the results they have obtained in accordance with Section 110 of the Electoral Act which empowers the Chairperson of the Commission to announce the results received from the returning officers. Subsections (1), (2) and (3) of the Act require the Chairperson of the Commission to make known the total number of votes counted and recorded for each political party and the appropriate quota determined and hence the number of seats obtained in the National Assembly according to paragraph 1 of Schedule 4 of


the Namibian Constitution, which in this case is 8 544. (Party Results - page 2 of today’s edition). Allow me at this point to express our gratitude as ECN to various role players who have assisted us in the administration of these elections, including the Government of the Republic of Namibia for the provision of the financial resources for the elections and the local civic organizations that also conducted civic and voter education. Special word of appreciation will also go to the Namibian Police for maintaining peace and providing safety and protection that rendered the electoral process the degree of fairness and freedom that is required for people to vote. The police officers were always at hand to offer the needed service to the electoral body that included the protection of our materials, staff and facilities. It would have been almost impossible to arrive at this stage without them. Indeed our men and women in uniforms are worthy of praise for their professionalism and diligence in the execution of their duties. Day and night, they were in harm's way to assist the ECN with securing both sensitive and non-sensitive electoral material during this period. Let me also thank the media for consistently providing information to the voters about every stage of the implementation of our Election calendar and the heightened interest they have shown in covering the election campaign period. We commend you for performing the role you are playing in keeping the Nation informed about the national democratic process.

Walvis Bay Deputy Junior Mayor Jacky Geirises switched on the Christmas decorative lights during the mayoral festival to officially kick off the festive season of unity at the town hall on Sunday. The festive season is a time for giving and receiving but a little more for the giving. It doesn't always have to be gifts shared but giving your time and energy to someone, your thoughts and ideas or even giving a hand to someone in need. Deputy Junior Mayor Jacky Geirises said at the event that although this is the festive season and a time for joyous celebration, we should still be very cautious during this time of the year. Geirises said “As we come to the end of the year we cannot forget the trials and tribulations. As a youth myself I cannot present a speech without mentioning the youth. The Junior Councils main aim is to be a voice for the youth. Furthermore stand up for the youth and to encourage them to be their better selves”. Geirises added that we need to be grateful for what they have, because not everybody has achieved what they have this year. Be grateful for your health, your family members, and the friendships you have made and most importantly the mementos of this year.

This right now is a great example of unity. Coming together as a community regardless of our race, religion, ethnic group and or financial background we need to look past these factors to come together to celebrate our differences and the love we have for each other and to begin the festive season full of joyous celebration together. As we know with unity comes power Geirese said. “The roads tend to be very busy during the festive season, so we should be very cautious during this time. We should avoid drinking and driving as this causes impairment in our mental capabilities and can results in an even higher rate of accidents,” Geirises added. Geirises and her fellow junior councillors handed out hundreds of gift packs to children. While everybody including elderly community members enjoyed live gospel music by various church groups and dance performances by community member before the Christmas decorative lights were finally switched on.

The new revived members of Sparta Football club Fabio Silheu, Otto Mack and President of Sparta United Recreation Club Isabel Mack, Tyrone Mouton, Filipe Clara, Raymond Coetzer, Victoe Clara, Emile Dorgeloh and Ashley Koff were absent when the photo were taken

cross-town rivals Blue Waters, where they were to be reunited with Bachman. This year a few young men revived the club to bring back the glory day of Sparta football. These men are Tyrone Mouton, Filipe Clara, Raymond Coetzer, Fabio Silheu, Victor Clara, Emile Dorgeloh and Ashley Koff. This group with the rest of the members will only participate in social games and tournaments. Development will be there main aim as they will with the help of Sparta United Recreation Club start a football academy at Sparta United Recreation Club for younger generation.

The club won their first trophy as they was the winner of the annual Football C.U.P hosted by Round Table Walvis Bay and they are certain that the next cup that will be added to their cabinet will be the SFC Christmas cup hosted be SFC in later this month. The club won their first playing kid at the annual Football C.U.P and received donations from Namibian Snoek Surprise and Exert Garage in Walvis Bay, The club are also busy to host their own football tournament. The President of Sparta United Recreation Club Isabel Mack said that the club is happy and will support the Football club like they do with the Cricket, Hockey, Netball and Rugby clubs.

Sparta Football Club revived Rudi Bowe

Sparta Football Club was restored after many years under the Sparta United Recreation Club in Walvis Bay. Sparta Football Club in the mid-seventies was arguably amongst the finest football entities at the dawn of the country's inaugural multi-racial football league in 1977 with their purple and white stripe outfits. Their aim was to sweep their opponents aside at will with a brand of football never witnessed in our neck of the woods before. Laden with predominantly Portuguese-speaking athletes and a mixture of footballers of German, English and Dutch descent, Sparta were the real deal. Like their cross-town rivals Blue Waters, Sparta benefited astronomically from European influence. The exciting Walvis Bay outfit would occasionally engage in exhibition matches against strong foreign teams made up of sailors from Spain, Norway, Japan and Brazil, anchored at the harbour town. The team always supplied the bulk of players in the then lily-white South West Africa (SWA) Invitational Eleven that competed in the highly competitive annual South African Provincial Curie Cup. The likes of agile shot-stopper Jimmy Orchard, lethal goal poachers Ronny Dagnin and Donny Renzke, attacking midfielder Ivo de Gou-

veia and elder brother Carlos (winger), as well as tough tackling burly centre back Uwe 'Etoko' Bachmann were exceptional athletes in their own right. Alongside Windhoek-based outfits Ramblers, The founder members of the club were Ivo de Gouveia, Jimmy Orchard, Ronny Dagnin and Carlos de Gouveia with the likes of Arthur de Bruyn, Bobby Kurtz, Collin Lackey and Allan Dickson all roped in to strengthen the playing personnel. Sparta FC went on to dominate the league and attracted some of the finest footballers from neighbouring South Africa – enticing them with lucrative job offers in the flourishing fishing industry. Sparta was amongst the very first sports entities to defy orders from the authorities by including players of colour in their playing squads. Sparta also won several cup competitions and was amongst the most decorated football clubs in history. Sadly, the coastal giants folded after the majority of squad members that included defender and team captain Uwe Bachman, Ronny Dagnin and Jimmy Orchard left the country for greener pastures in neighboring South Africa and thus prompting the likes of Ivo, Donny Renzke, Cruyff Kudulu and Sandro de Gouevia to jump ship only to resurface at

What's next for Swakopmund's Godwin Zollie !Awaseb Isaac Chikosi

Weighing about 75 kg and standing at 1.68metres tall, Godwin Zolile !Awaseb was born on 26 August 2000. !Awaseb has been playing soccer from the tender age of seven and since then his passion for the game has only deepened. !Awaseb says his best position is striker although he sometimes plays in the midfield. “I have a powerful strike,

and this is the position I play when representing (selected for) the national team. I'm also good at holding play and bringing

others into play”, he explains. In 2008 !Awaseb joined the Joint Swakopmund Football Club Academy, under

9s: winning the top goal scorer award (Under 11 age group); and later represented Namibia for the first time in 2013 where his

The Sparta Football team of the mid-seventies with some of the trophies that they won team finished third, !Awaseb scored 3 goals in the tournament. Adding to this, in 2016 the striker made his first senior appearance for Swakopmund Football Club in a friendly match aged 15 before heading to Mauritius the same year for the 2016 U/17 COSAFA Tournament with the National Team. The final game was a rematch between Namibia and South Africa. “I came off the bench to break the deadlock 64 minutes into the game, but our lead was short lived as South Africa equalised in the 70th minute”, said !Awaseb. Namibia was the 2016 U/17 COSAFA Champion. !Awaseb who currently plays for Swakopmund Football Club dreams of playing at club level overseas and has been accepted to train with Future Lions International Football Academy in the United Kingdom. However, he still needs to gather funds

for an air ticket and accommodation for the 18-week course which is tagged at £7500.Included in this fare, is airport transfer, accommodation, training programme and showcase matches, personalised development plan to ensure you get the most out of your experience, full gym membership, training and match kits among other
