Gruesome start to festive season on Namibia’s roads


Herman Kinghorn dies

Erwin Leuschner

The death toll on Namibia's roads has marked the start of the festive season as the deadliest in the country's history. Twenty people were killed on the country's roads over the weekend, with five of the deaths in two separate accidents in the Erongo Region. Adding to this tragedy is the fact that a person also drowned in the sea at Vierkantklip on Saturday [see report in today's edition]. "Drivers must consider other road users. Sadly, it is mostly innocent people that are dying, whilst the drivers survive. We call on all vehicle drivers to not drink and drive and we will once again enforce a zero-tolerance approach to people driving whilst under the influence of alcohol", Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, police regional crime investigations coordinator for Erongo, told namib times over the weekend in response to the deadly accidents.

A 36-year old resident of Narraville in Walvis Bay drowned on Saturday morning during a rock lobster diving excursion at Vierkantklip south of Swakopmund. The incident occurred at about 08:00, according to Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, police regional crime investigations coordinator for Erongo. The drowning also serves as a stark reminder over the danger of drowning, specifically with the festive season approaching during which thousands of people will take it to the sea for recreation or harvesting of marine life or fishing. According to

Iikuyu, Mario Isaaks and seven friends from Narraville went diving for rock lobsters that morning. Circumstances surrounding the drowning are not yet known. Sources revealed to namib times the friends noticed the deceased's body floating in the water. Even though

paramedics from EMed rescue 24 were on scene promptly, it was too late to save the victim. The deceased's body was taken to Walvis Bay Police Mortuary for a post-mortem examination to determine the exact cause of death. His next of kin have been informed.

The festive season is a time when people look forward to relaxation and quality time spent with family and friends. For hundreds of people this has turned out to be a time of sorrow and pain, as the twenty people are mourned by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives, friends and colleagues. On Saturday morning, on the C34 salt road between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay behind the dunes, close to the Langer Heinrich turn-off a white BMW (N45043W) overtook a tanker truck at a very high speed. The driver lost control over the vehicle. The sedan left the road and overturned. The momentum ejected all five occupants from the car, killing three people instantly. They were identified as three male occupants, Monzil McNab (24), Jaco Goliath (25) and Solomon Alfonzo Winfred (27). The remaining two occupants who survived the accident were rushed to the Swakopmund State Hospital in a critical condition. Izolda Belies, a 24-year old Namibian female, passed away shortly after being admitted to hospital. The only survivor is Kisting Clinton Wotan (35). His condition was yesterday described as stable. "He is the owner of the car and it is believed he was driving when the accident happened", Iikuyu continued. To the reporter of the namib times on the scene on Saturday morning there was stark irony in a dirty and torn sticker that was once displayed [as a statement of misplaced pride] on the BMW before the accident reduced it to a mangled wreckage of death: "I am not driving fast. I am flying low." Another fatality was reported in the Erongo region when a white Isuzu pick-up was involved in an accident on the B2 between Swakopmund and Arandis on Sunday at about 17:00. According to Deputy Commissioner Iikuyu, the driver, Kavepuka Ngaringombe (30), lost control over the vehicle as he was travelling towards Swakopmund. The vehicle left the road and overturned. Both occupants were rushed to the Swakopmund state hospital. Ngaringombe was declared dead upon arrival. The other passenger, Dina Inyomoka Unanisa (22), is in a critical but stable condition. Another accident claimed the lives of three Grade 8 learners near Outjo over the weekend. Reports indicate a pick-up in which the learners travelled overturned on the Outjo-Otavi gravel road. One person, also a school boy survived the accident. On Sunday tragedy struct near Okahandja when about twenty kilometers from the town on the B2 [direction Karibib] a vehicle overtook numerous cars recklessly and slammed into an oncoming vehicle. Both cars burst into flames. Nine people were killed. One person was admitted to hospital in a critical condition. Deputy Commissioner Iikuyu made use of the opportunity to again plead with drivers taking it to the country and more particularly Erongo's roads to have road safety in mind as a number one concern. Speeding, dangerous overtaking, overloading and driving under the influence of an intoxicating substance cause deaths on our roads year after year and the carnage seems to be a nightmare from which we cannot seem to escape. Iikuyu warned people that not only will the police and other authorities be vigilant at permanent road block points, but law enforcement will also concentrate on mobile road blocks to enforce traffic safety. He reminded drivers to be vigilant in the name of road safety and added wearing safety belts, adhering to road traffic signs, not to speak on a cellphone whilst driving will not only protect the driver and his passengers' lives but it will also save the lives of all road users.

Swakopmund and Walvis Bay mayors re-elected Erwin Lesuchner and Floris Steenkamp

Continued from Page 1

Both mayors were spared the political axe after not siding with faction Team Swapo that did not want President Hage Geingob to run for a second term in office as Head of State in the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly Elections. In Swakopmund, the seat of Deputy Mayor also remained unchanged in favour of Clr. Maria Elago, but in Walvis Bay Clr. Hilka Erastus was voted out in favour of Clr. Penelope Martin for the post as Deputy Mayor. Political commentators have been quoted in the national press stating that Erastus was linked to the disbanded Team Swapo and the political axe fell for her, the same fate that befell several high ranking Swapo politicians and in some instances even sympathisers

What does the National Heritage Council say??? About the building Height and Bulk factor relaxations Contributed in Swakopmund? Lately the pressure has been building about the rather questionable relaxations by the Swakopmund Municipality and the Minister of not only height restrictions but also the bulk factor relaxations. Depending on the zoning (General Business, Residential, Industrial etc) of any particular property relaxations of up to 30 and 40m in building height have been passed by the Swakopmund Municipal Council. The 'Bulk Factor' (the amount of internal built space in relation to the area of the property) has been increased to be unlimited in some cases. This means that a building that is built to a height of 30 or 40m may also extend to each boundary of the property on every floor for the full 30 or 40m height. Considering that previous height restictions to a maximum of 13m were allowed within the Conservation Area of Swakopmund and 16m (with relaxation outside the Conservation Area) with a maximum bulk factor of 2 (2x the area of the property) depending on the zoning of the property, these new relaxations have a very dramatic impact on the future face of Swakopmund. ……..AND WHERE IS THE NATIONAL HERITAGE COUNCIL? We have heard nothing from them!!! After Independence the National Heritage Council had a Swakopmund Conservation Area proclaimed and Gazetted in the National Heritage Act. Swakopmund is the only town in Namibia which has a proclaimed Conservation Area. Both the Swakopmund Municipality and the National Heritage Council agreed that the unique environment and character of the main tourist town of Swakopmund should be protected. The Municipal Council thus included the Conservation Area in the Town Planning Scheme and the National Heritage Council had it gazetted. It is thus the Mandate of both these Councils to protect the environment and character of the Conservation Area of Swakopmund. Was the National Heritage Council consulted before the decision was taken to relax building heights in Swakopmund? If they were not consulted, why have they not taken up their Mandate as PROTECTOR with all guns blazing and questioned this unprecedented roller-coaster decision by the Swakopmund Municipality to relax bulk and building heights to the extent that this will exterminate any recognizable town character? The processes that have been followed by authorities in having these new relaxations passed are alleged to be questionable at the least. As a result of Swakopmund being the main tourist attraction in Namibia, the Swakopmund Municipality previously employed experts to set up a detailed Scheme by the Urban Planning Forum for future development in Swakopmund. This Scheme, dated 2000, was used as reference throughout the years in order to avoid serious planning mistakes. The new relaxations have no relation to the proposals of this Scheme whatsoever. Many coastal towns throughout the World especially along the Mediterranean coast are still suffering from bad decision making in the past. High-rise buildings were constructed directly along the shore, and this has diminished the property values and town environments in large strips behind these visual and physical blocks. Decisions were taken to suit a handful of wealthy people at the expense not only of the remaining residents but also of the entire town environment. Was a study done to allow this type of decision making to take place in Swakopmund? Is this responsible decision making? The first submission for approval for a 40m high development, it seems, will be for a new 40m high building at the old Swakopmund Indoor Swimming pool site. A very poorly advertised 4 hour long "Public Scoping" took place at the Swakopmund Municipality foyer. This property lies within the Swakopmund Conservation Area. What is the reaction of the National Heritage Council? A 40m high building in the Conservation Area will be visible far out of town and will tower over all surrounding structures. It will block the views to the sea of millions of Dollars of developments that have taken place in the town of Swakopmund. It will block the light beam of the very well known Lighthouse landmark. It will change street-scapes in almost the entire Conservation Area. The proposed new building is also intended to house a Hotel. The Environmental Act requires that an EIA (environmental impact assessment) is done for any Hotel that is erected. These buildings require an Environmental Clearance Certificate. The public calls out the National Heritage Council to protect the Conservation Area of Swakopmund. Just one building of 30 or 40m in this area will negate any past or future efforts to 'conserve' this area of town.

Fuel price increases

Piquet Jacobs

This week, on Wednesday at one minute past midnight, fuel prices in Namibia are increasing by fifty cents a liter, both for petrol and diesel. For those planning to travel far for holiday destinations, this brings an unexpected twist to the fuel budget. The Ministry of Mines and Energy in its announcement said the current exchange rate between the Namibia Dollar and the US Dollar is unfavourable for imports, including for fuel. Namibia imports 100 % of its petroleum products and buys on spot markets in the US Dollar currency. The Walvis Bay pump prices will be: 95 Octane Unleaded Petrol: N$ 11.70 per liter Diesel 500ppm: N$ 11.73 per liter Diesel 50ppm: N$ 11.78 per liter

The Usakos Development Expo is an initiative by the youth of Usakos and it is supported by the Usakos Town Council. The Expo will be held at the Hakhaseb Central Grounds at Usakos. says Manfred Naobeb the Chairperson of Usakos Development Expo. He explained the Expo will serve as a platform to unite the community of Usakos and provide them with an opportunity to get together and showcase their products and services for sale. Usakos is one of the towns which are left behind in terms of development and this expo is expected to attract investors to the small town, further explained Naobeb. The event will kick off with the registration process and setting-up of stalls on Wednesday, 6 December at the Hakhaseb Central Grounds from 12:00-18:00. The Expo will be open to the public on Thursday from 07:00-22:00.

The official opening ceremony will be on Friday, 8 December, between 10:00 and 13:00 at the same venue. There will be a colour party and DJ clash that evening from 19:00 till late.

So far, a total of 45 outdoor stalls have registered and 13-15 indoor stalls were registered. The organising committee also hosted a gala dinner on 2 December, which Naobeb said was very successful. "People pledged support in their own personal capacities. There were people from the corporate world, government departments and private businesses who all made pledges. A total of N$12 000 was raised at the gala dinner for this year's Expo and many people even made pledges for next year", said Naobeb.

Earlier that evening, Imarwa was allegedly seen at Oshitambi Bar by his friends buying a cool drink for a lady they know as "Sengu". Thereafter he allegedly left the bar with the said lady. Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, Nampol spokesperson for Erongo region said: "It is further alleged the deceased was later seen being attacked and stabbed with an unknown object by two unknown male persons". According to Iikuyu, Imarwa's body was later found lying in a pool of blood in the street near Oshitambi Bar. Imarwa had a deep cut wound on the right chest. Iikuyu confirmed the 24-year old lady last seen with the deceased and her 29-year old boyfriend were detained after the incident and an investigation into the incident is unfolding. The Police requests the public's assistance with any information that could shed more light on the circumstances and alibi for this murder. Sgt Orub is the investigating officer and can be contacted at 081 218 0140 or contact the nearest police station.

12 300 metric tons of wheat discharged in port

The bulk carrier African HHB is expected alongside in the port of Walvis Bay toward the end of this week to discharge a total of 12 300 metric tons of wheat. Namibia imports an estimated 80 % of its annual wheat requirements. Wheat is value added in Namibia for human consumption, and Government aims at making the country self-reliable in terms of both wheat- and maize production by 2030. To achieve that the country needs some 27 000 hectares of irrigated land developed, according to the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry Anna Shiweda who addressed delegates at the second annual general meeting of Agricultural Business Development (Agribusdev) at Ongwediva in the Oshana Region earlier this year.

Port Log






Drug dealers sent to prison despite pleas for leniency The courts will no longer be lenient when it comes to convictions for dealing in cocaine. Three Walvis Bay residents who were found guilty of dealing in cocaine this week were each slapped with a prison sentence, as opposed to expectations that they were only to be given a fine each. All three also pleaded for leniency by the court not to sentence them to prison, but this was all to no bail. Diego Wicomb (25), Benito Du Toit (18) and Martin Humphries (21) were sentenced by magistrate John Sindano on Wednesday. Wicomb is a repeat offender and received two separate jail terms of eighteen months and six months for two separate cocaine-convictions. Du Toit and Humpries are first offenders. Du Toit received a six months sentence and Humpries eighteen monhts. Alexander Blessed Melani All the people against these guy's. What role do u play in our community? Do you create employment? Do you give the youth mentoring? Do you help our kids from Narriville to get bursaries??? I guess 99% of people that have much to say don't contribute to a better community in Narriville. It doesn't help u judge those but rather help those that you can to get us in our Community Narriville to a better place... Njam Ricco Dt eenvoudig ntja bru like dt. Loretta Hager So you say its ok to sell drugs, thats got nothing to do with community help or not, drugs kills children, shame on you. Matilda John You are right but selling drug should not be used as an excuse, look for a better way to make an income but not selling drugs, bursaries are granted on academic merit, so the youth must work hard in school to get those bursaries. Eldo Hammerslacht We as parents start by teaching our kids to work hard for a better life. We teach them education, discipline and commitment are things that brings you somewhere in life. some of these parents are cleaners and gardeners but still work for a lousy salary to educate and feed their kids. if they can't provide bursaries or mentorship in their communities does it mean that some low life lazy ass person should expose their kids to these kinds of social evils??????? Theres no single reason for any human being to engage in drug trading. You will be dealt with no matter what lousy excuses you use. Man up or go to prison.t hats the only 2 choices there is and they made their choice!!!!!!!! Alexander Blessed Melani Most of the kids don't have parents. Just a question: What do u do in community apart from your kids??

Alexander Blessed Melani Loretta Hager I will invite you for a walk in Narriville. You will be safe , just to have a different perspective. I am not for selling drugs or anything illegal. But the root cause of the problem is not so simple.

Dippenaar trial to continue in October 2018 The murder trial of JandrĂŠ Dippenaar will only continue in October 2018. In the picture below Dippenaar is seen following his legal representative Advocate Louis Botes from the Swakopmund regional court yesterday.The cross examination concluded yesterday of Mr. Paul Oosthuizen who witnessed the 29 December 2014 gruesome accident on the Swakopmund-Henties Bay road when Dippenaar's FJ Cruiser slammed head-on into an oncoming Ford Ranger, killing six people in total (three people in his vehicle and three people in the other vehicle). After the testimony the case was remanded to 8 October 2018. The state expert, Johan Joubert, who reconstructed the accident, is expected then to give his testimony. The trial will run until 12 October, after which the trial will again continue from 19 until 23 November 2018. Courtney Trossbach And he gets to walk around some more like a free man, enjoying his brandy cokes

ACC nabs Walvis Bay taxi driver in bribery sting operation A taxi driver of Walvis Bay has been arrested by the Anti-Corruption of Namibia during a sting operation recently, after he paid a bribe to a traffic officer to return his taxi's license disc. A suspension notice was issued, because the taxi was not roadworthy. The taxi driver, identified as Johannes Johannes, paid the traffic officer a bribe of N$1500 to return the license disc, but what he did no reckon with was this traffic officer is not corrupt and reported the matter to the ACC. A sting operation was set up. Johannes paid the "bribe" o N$1500 via cell phone whereafter he was arrested as he was approaching the traffic officer to get his license disc of his vehicle back. Gerold Nanub Acc is only after the so called "small fish " never ever have I heard they cought a high ranked official or politician or even a business person mxm. Sam Nambahu True that. Gavin Noble Scala Burger hul moet die taxi driver laat gaan. wat van SME bank. Kapofi Simataa en hul almal wat involve is. da is die bank gelikwideer korrupsie loop vry op straat rond fire paulus Noa. what a traversty off justice last but not least Shangalla. Tuflex Abdulah Kobus Namibian law is only active on poor people trying to make a living because of their unnecessary strict rules.... people want to work to be living independently and able to take care of their families now ur locking them....ACC is toothless sowaar, go to Zimbabwe and get the SME 200 mill what is 1500? Travis Chan Somehow makes sense . Zupha Candice Nicole Camm As daai taxi driver se lisence disc af gevat was, dan was daar n rede, meaning die kar was ni reg. Sou sy brieke ni 100% werk en hy n ongeluk veroorsaak en jou famielie lid dood in daai ongeluk. Of sy ligte werk ni en hy overtake en veroosaak n kop aan kop bosting met jou famielie lid en veroosaak dat iemand dood. Dan sou jul wou weet of die taxi padvaardig was en hoekom niemand niks daaraan gedoen het ni. maar die Acc kon baie belangerike, grooter en ernstige saake gehanteer het of probeer oplos het as om iemand of n kar vol mense se lewens te red. Do feel sorry for the taxi driver who wants to earn money to be able to support his family, maar, as iemand sou dood weens n ongeluk sou hy in elk geval gaan tronk het.

World Aids Day - Aids continues to claim around 2 million lives globally per year (27% of casualties are children Today the world is commemorating World Aids Day, commemorated each year on 1 December. The day is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic, caused by the spread of HIV infection, and mourning those who have died of this illness. In Swakopmund, World Aids Day was commemorated yesterday. The event was organised by the Swakopmund Municipality for the public and staff members of the Swakopmund Municipality. The World Aids Day celebration has become the most recognised health day internationally and it also offers a key opportunity to global health organisations to increase awareness among people, to disseminate information on access to treatment as well as discussing preventative measures against infection, explained the Mayor of Swakopmund, Clr Pauline Nashilundo. Clr Nashilundo highlighted the importance to support those infected with HIV/AIDS. Whether an employee, a relative or friend, there is always hope. In the workplace the support for a person living with HIV/Aids not only enhances the quality of a life, but this person is more productive and a benefit to his or her employer. “Let us help our employees through education and prevention and ensure the happiness and gratitude of our workforce", proclaimed Clr Nashilundo. Elvira Abrahams it's a painful memory to remember someone dearly that has suffered a pain full passing its sad today we can live so much longer just to know our status it's no more a death sentence we can be treated eaqualy if we only do one step to get tested its nice to see these people care rip to all HIV aids sufferers and those who passed May your memory be with us of the Times we were happy when we hugged you and knew you were here but the relieve of the pain took you away in a much better place .




Convenience comes to Langstrand

Piquet Jacobs

The level of development at the coast has grown vastly over the past few years, so much so that Langstrand is now home to it's own Total service station; bringing convenience closer might be small in terms the bold decision to to those living at Langstrand as well as Dolphin Beach. The long anticipated filling station at Langstrand was officially opened on Saturday afternoon in the presence of the Mayor of Walvis Bay, Alderman Immanuel Wilfried, and its developers, Tidle Wave Investment Ninety (Pty) Ltd. The station has been operational for a few weeks, though the finishing touches were being

made to the Bonjour convenience store, which is standard to all Total retail fuel outlets. The station is under the management of Micke du Preez, who has a lot of experience in the business and successfully managed the Total in Rundu. The facility has two in-store ATM's, Standard Bank and First National Bank, and a car wash. The station opens just in time for the busy

festive season ahead, to cater for all needs of locals and visitors. Speaking at the event, Total Namibia Managing Director, Naf-tal Kakwambi, congratulated the investors and developers for taking the initiative and wished them luck with the operations of the business. “We at Total believe in quality, in safer and cleaner products. We

of service in Namibia, but we are busy increasing our footprint,� Kakwambi concluded. Kakwambi added that Total Namibia has made

donate two cents per litre for every heavy fuel oil to the preservation of the environment, in their vision to ensure a supply of long lasting resources.







Be vigilant for card fraudsters this festive season In as much as we look forward to the prospects of buying gifts for your family and friends this coming festive season, we need to be alert at all times not to fall victim to potential fraudsters who want to swindle people their hard earned money. It is common for fraudsters to always lurk around us in order to have a share of the money we earn. So, whenever using your card (debit or credit card), be on guard by being aware of your surroundings. Your card credentials can be easily compromised and subsequently used by fraudsters, who can easily take all the money in your account or use up the entire credit available on your credit card. Therefore, be always vigilant when purchasing groceries at a store, having breakfast or lunch at a restaurant, booking accommodation in a lodge or hotel, or purchasing air tickets as this may require to make payment using your debit card or credit card at a Point of Sale machine or withdrawing cash at an ATM. These are

a few of the places where you could fall victim to fraud. The following are tips to keep in mind when using your cards: · Never keep the ATM card or credit card together with your PIN. · Never allow anyone else to enter your PIN for you, or you entering it while someone is watching, even when being assisted. · Block view of the keypad (the part where you punch in your PIN) when entering the PIN at an ATM or Point of Sale terminal. · When paying at a Point of Sale terminal, beware of suspicious cashiers who make movements which could be aimed at distracting your sight of the ATM card or credit card. · Familiarise yourself with ATM functions and only enter the information the ATM requires of you and not getting deceived by fraudsters that ATM functions have changed. Fraudsters

could swap your card, after obtaining your PIN. · If unsure about ATM functions or unfamiliar with how to use an ATM, ask bank staff for assistance. · Never hand your ATM or credit card to be swiped on a Point of Sale terminal for a transaction away from you. Rather always have your card in sight. · Observe your surroundings before using an ATM, especially at Malls and fuel stations. · Avoid using secluded (isolated) or unguarded ATMs if possible, unless someone is accompanying you. · If someone or something seems suspicious, leave the area immediately. · Physically inspect the card slot of the ATM to ensure it has not been tampered with and there is nothing attached to it. · Store your cash away before leaving the ATM. · Review your account

The town of Swakopmund is set to host the inaugural Charity Desert Braai Festival Soccer Tournament on Saturday 9 December 2017 at the popular Vineta Sports Complex, with the main aim of providing a boost for the local tourism economy. The event is being hosted alongside the annual, open air and iconic Desert Braai Festival & Family Fun Day, which is held against the backdrop of the breath-taking Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Deserts. All proceeds will be channeled towards charitable a cause in the local communities. The tournament is geared to discover the Coastal Belt's true tourism resources and all they have to offer. The announcement came from the tournament organizers, the Desert Events and tournament sponsor: Erongo Consulting Group CC. The tournament seeks to bring more than 2,500 players and supporters to Swakopmund each year. The Desert Cup organizers and sponsors will also run the soccer academy event. Local tourism players, SMEs and entrepreneurs are direct beneficiaries of the whole event. "Because the local, regional and international tourists will be here during the December holidays, they will be too occupied with their own things, so, what you see is a ripple into the local economy as people will be having a lot of activities throughout the Swakopmund community and beyond," said Pauline N. Hamadziripi, of Erongo Consulting Group CC, the main Tournament Sponsors. This is the first time the tournament is being held in Swakopmund, and the organizers anticipate to have the tournament hosted across the Coastal Belt, in towns like Henties Bay, Walvis Bay and Arandis, as well as Omaruru as from 2018 and beyond."So, it's got a large economic impact in terms of travel spending coming into the Swakopmund community," added Desert Events. Local officials say the addition of the soccer academy bolsters Swakopmund's position as a soccer-centric community with a growing national reputation. The tournament organizers are pleased to extend a cordial invitation to local clubs to enter this tournament to be played on Saturday 9 December 2017. It will comprise round of 16, quarter finals, semifinals, and semifinals and final, with medals for the winner and runners up coupled with prize monies. Teams or clubs enter on a "First Come first served" basis. Entry fee will be NAD500.00 per team. No entries will be allowed after 8 December 2017. No NPL players are allowed. Interested Teams, Clubs or Companies can contact the Tournament Organisers at 081.878.6676 / 081.717.6642 or email: for further details and Entry Forms.

Cricket World Cup - here we come! is not only a reflection of your talent and ability, but also proof of your hard work and dedication. This upcoming tournament is an ideal opportunity for each player to compare yourself against the best in the world at your age group. It is a well known fact that most senior leading players in the world have played at the u19 Cricket World Cup"."This is the ideal opportunity to get the attention of the selectors and the national coach for future senior national team selection. It is an honour to represent your country and to play at a World Cup. Remember you are now playing on the global stage - it is a once in a lifetime opportunity," Snyman than congratulated all the players and management and said that their selection was not out of luck but the result of hard work and dedication. The team captain Lohan Louwrens said "We have the opportunity to make history, so let's take it. Unlike other people who think that because we don't have many cricketers it's a disadvantage, I think it's a massive advantage. We know each other, we have played together since our u11 days and we are all good friends. We play for the team and for each other”.Namibian's longest serving cricket administrator, Laurie Pieters said "Let's not forget where our cricket comes from and let's make sure to leave a legacy for Namibian cricket and our younger players to follow".
