Remembrance of workers an important achievement
The celebration of Workers Day on 1 May, “May Day” is a day of remembrance of workers and is an important achievement in the fight by workers in recognition of their contributions to society and socio-economic development. Recognizing the fact that the day signifies awareness about some of the difficulties faced by workers in the collective endeavor to improve their working conditions, the Namibian Government stands with workers in that ongoing journey. The President of the Republic of Namibia, His Excellency Dr Hage G. Geingob in his message to the Namibian Workers said that theNamibian Government will always be on the side of workers. President Hage G. Geingob said, “The fight for independence accelerated by the struggles of workers against the exploitative and unjust colonial regime. ” According to Geingob, the rights of workers in Namibia are a fundamental right guaranteed and protected by the Constitution. “Since independence, the Namibian Government has been committed to the advancement of Namibian workers by putting in place several interventions to guarantee fairness, to protect their safety and to improve their working conditions,” the president added. In addition to legislation that guarantees and protects the rights of workers, during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government provided relief to employers in order to protect employees against the socio-economic scarring caused by the pandemic. Geingob said, “Although we have made significant progress as a country to guarantee safe working environments for workers, there is still much more to be done. ”

Cassinga Day will forever be a scar in the memory of Namibians Media Release On this day, 4 May 2022, the President of the Republic of Namibia, His Excellency Dr. Hage G. Geingob joins Namibians in memory of the hundreds of Namibian refugees and freedom fighters who died in the barbaric attack by the notorious colonial troops of apartheid South Africa at Cassinga in southern Angola. Today, 44 years after the brutal, senseless and inhumane massacre of Namibian
refugees, mainly women and children, on 4 May 1978, at Cassinga in southern Angola, we
still remember that painful chapter because the physical and psychological scars are deep and they remain a constant reminder that the freedom and independence of the Namibian people came at a high cost. “On this solemn day, we pause to remember our compatriots who lost their precious lives on that fateful day, May 4, 1978, on which horrific acts of violence and brutality were committed against the Namibian people. A day of memory, Cassinga Day should continue to remind Nami-
bians about the selfless sacrifices made by thousands of our countrymen and women in the course of the struggle for the independence of our motherland. It is therefore our duty to ensure that the dreams, aspirations and blood of those sons and daughters of Namibia who laid down their lives so that we can enjoy our freedom today are not betrayed. Therefore, the most befitting manner in which we can honour the memory of Cassinga Day and the sacrifices of our heroes and heroines is by
working hard, in unity, towards the realization of a better Namibia, guided by the principles of social justice, solidarity and the improvement of the standards of living of all our people. Let us therefore engage, as a collective, in actions that give deserving respect to those who lost their lives for the freedom and independence of our country. In memory of the 44th anniversary of the Cassinga Massacre, I urge all Namibians to forge ahead with the task of nation-building. Let us pull together in the same direction to build a united and prosperous Namibia for present and future generations of our country.

Danny rides for Hope
Danny Beukes to ride 600km Piquet Jacobs Well known cyclist, Danny Beukes, will be taking on 600km from Walvis Bay to Tsumeb on his bicycle, with his wife and son as support, in order to raise funds for the Tsumeb Hope Children's Centre. The Hope Children's Centre was spearheaded and run by Jeanette Theron and her late husband, Andre Theron who passed in 2021 due to COVID-19; the initiative was born in 2008 from a feeding scheme which them grew into giving vulnerable children a safe haven and family home environment. Jeanette currently houses nine children, of which eight are her permanent foster children, whilst still keeping the feeding scheme alive. Their objective reads, 'Our mission is to provide a safe place for them to live, three meals a day, an education at local schools, and as much love as we can give.' Danny and his family, Christelle and Jacques Beukes were meant to take a family holiday to the area when they decided to make use of the opportunity to raise awareness and raise funds for the centre. “I have always had a soft
spot for children, but the intention behind this idea is to celebrate heroes. The real heroes being people like Jeanette and Maureen Baard who wake up each day and make a difference. The secondary heroes are those who donate and pray. I would also like to thank the Namib Times, who has always been key to all my fundraisers from way back.” Danny will be riding to raise funds, and implores on the public to be by hero by donating N$2 per km (N$1 200), N$1 per km (N$600), N$0.50 per km (N$300), N$0.25 per km (N$150) or any amount to make this idea a reality. The donations can be paid directly to the Hope Children's Centre, please contact Jeanette Theron at 081 450 8705 or Danny Beukes at 081 128 2256 for more information.

17 Namibian women missing through possible human trafficking syndicate Eileen van der Schyff
Revelations of Young Namibians with the hopes of greener pastures, lured by a possible human trafficking syndicate to the Middle East, have come to the attention of the Namibian police after an investigation was launched after police received information on 22 March.
According to the Namibian police, 26 Namibians are suspected to have been human trafficked to Oman. Joseph Shikongo, the Deputy Inspector General of the Namibian police said 17 of the 26 women that recently left the country through the suspected human trafficking syndicate that was orchestrated from Grootfontein are missing. The whereabouts of the remaining women have been identified. Shikongo said,” The Namibian Police have received information on possible human trafficking. It attracts young Namibian women to the Middle East.” During the police investigation, women who almost fell victim to the syndicate were questioned while others, aged between 27 and 40, under the impression and promise of a job in the Middle East, are now missing. Police
cautions the public to be vigilant. The statement reads: Others were not so lucky, as they went through with the plan and never returned, and their whereabouts are unknown.” So far, 77 cases of human trafficking were reported to the Namibian police from April 2010 to March 2022.Twenty-eight cases are under investigation, 26 are finalised, 17 are still on the court roll and six cases are pending. The statement from the Namibian police further reads: “It is further alleged that these women engaged a facilitator here in Namibia who lures them into accepting job offers abroad. Trips to these countries including work visas that can cost up to N$40 000-00, which is mostly covered by the facilitators but to be paid back once employed on the other side.

To date, German development cooperation with Namibia - governmental and nongovernmental programmes - amounts to more than 1.2 billion Euros. In per-capita terms, Namibia is thus the largest recipient of German development cooperation in Africa. At the last round of bilateral development negotiations, Namibia and Germany agreed on new grants and loans in the amount of 242 million Euro
(approximate 4 billion NAD). The areas of cooperation consist of § Private Sector and Financial System Development § Vocational Education and Training § Natural Resource Management § Water Infrastructure § Inclusive and Sustainable Urban Development § Renewable Energy Infrastructure The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which have been domesticated in the national developmental frameworks such as NDP5 and the Harambee Prosperity Plan II, form part of the backbone for structuring the Namibian-German development co-operation. The priority areas are fully in line to contributing to the Harambee Prosperity Plan II. The emphasis is on a quality-driven trans-
formation process in order to achieve sustainable and inclusive development and to reach the common goal of overcoming poverty and inequality by supporting job creation, particularly targeting the youth. Namibian-German development cooperation is based on agreements between the two countries, which are concluded during negotiations between the two governments every two years. In the scope of these negotiations, strategies for the future cooperation are developed together. The next round of negotiations on development cooperation will be held in 2023. The Namibia - German cooperation has yielded positive results and has contributed to Namibia's quest of achieving its national
aspirations such as employment creation and poverty reduction. Some of the many ongoing programmes under the cooperation include the support to addressing the economic and social challenges Namibia is facing due to the COVID19 pandemic, support to management of public enterprises, promotion of vocational education, support to transport sector, support packages for conservation, bio-diversity and the tourism sector as well as the support programs for businesses, SMEs and informal settlements. Namibia and Germany underscore the commitment of the two governments towards further strengthening the excellent bilateral relations for the mutual benefit of the Namibian and German people.

The current structures at Kavita Park will remain the same, the council wants to add parking spaces for loading and offloading goods and for tourists to be able to park close to the park.

MoDVA's Gender Policy signed and ratified by government Sharlien Tjambari
During its five-day workshop, the Ministry of Defence and Veterans Affairs (MoDVA) deliberated on the Draft MoDVA Gender Policy and aligned it to International, Continental, Regional, Sub-Regional and National instruments which the Namibian Government has signed and ratified. While closing the workshop on Friday, 29 April, Colonel Agatha Amadhila, the senior staff officer of Gender at the Ministry of Defense and Veterans Affairs, said the workshop further aligned the draft policy to the National Gender Policy which is also under review. Amadhila said, “ a d d i t i o n a l l y, t h i s policy is in response to the implementation of the National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security, in conformity with the United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325.” According to Amadhila, the workshop has formulated objectives that will ensure that the goal of the policy is achieved and realized. The main objectives, amongst others are to increase the opportunities for partici-
pation of women at all decision-making levels; to strengthen meaningful participation of women in peace processes and conflict resolutions; and to strengthen institutional mechanisms to address gender inequalities within MoDVA.

NovaMarine expands Technologies service offering to Walvis Bay NovaMarine, a marine safety and survival equipment service provider based in Cape Town, has expanded its technologies service offering to Walvis Bay, Namibia. The Technologies division is a specialised procurement division within NovaMarine for the supply, installation and commissioning of auxiliary marine systems for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM's) such as Gefico, Cathelco, SKF and many more. Susan Meldrum, Divisional Manager for NovaMarine said, “We had promising engagements with the local marine market in Walvis Bay towards the end of last year. These engagements re-affirmed the need to provide locally based support to the Namibian fishing and diamond mining market. As a large portion of work stems from our ability to service our clients offshore, this expansion further makes us accessible to the West African market. At present, our Durban branch services our Richard's Bay clients on the east coast where we have seen an increase in sales over the past year.” NovaMarine Technologies holds exclusive agency agreements with Gefico and Cathelco for cathodic marine growth protection systems (MGPS), Impressed Current Corrosion Protection (ICCP) and reverse osmosis water maker systems. They are accredited distributors for Chris Marine, Victor Marine and RWO and a distributor and service agent for Daihatsu Diesel medium speed engines and aftersales services for Sub-Saharan Africa. A recent addition to the Technologies portfolio is an agreement with SKF Germany for their marine portfolio of products which allows them to procure and service a range of oily water separators, Simplex stern tube sealing systems, steering gear and
fin stabilizer systems. Richard Abbott, Technical Manager, said, “The SKF brand is internationally recognised, and their products cover a range of components necessary for the smooth running of a vessel. We have also seen an opportunity to partner with SKF to offer training to the marine industry on maintenance of their mounting and shaft alignment systems. So far, we've had successful sessions with the South African market and will be extending it to our global customers.” NovaMarine initially saw the effects of international lockdown restrictions during the pandemic, and their technicians were unable to go offshore. Offshore activity started increasing towards the end of 2021 and this year so far, they have successfully performed servicing in Angola and Senegal on the safety and survival side and in Nigeria and Ivory Coast for Technologies. Andrew Sturrock, CEO of parent company Sturrock Grindrod Maritime said, “We anticipate this expansion to be the first of many as we align the competencies within the Group to offer our clients sound technical support and ensure seamless ship movements. Our business is customer-centric and focused on operational efficiency. We strive for a 10/10 customer experience.” NovaMarine forms part of the SGM Technical division of Sturrock Grindrod Maritime, which includes marine safety and survival equipment and maintenance (NovaMarine), engineering services (Hesper and SwiftNova) and depot services (United Container Depots).

Namibia dancers scoop Gold in Spain Rudi Bowe
The Dance Sport Namibia (DSN) dancers recently scooped gold in Dance Musical category at the Barcelona Dance International Competition held in Spain. The Namibian Sports Commission awarded national colours to the national dance sports team that consisted of 19 dancers between nine and 44 years old and two officials that competed in 140 different choreographies. The competition saw 12 countries and 190 athletes from four continents fiercely competing in the three-day event. DSN was represented in five categories, namely: Contemporary, Folk, Hip-Hop, Musical and Pedagogy, and the competition were judged per category. All the dance items within a specific category counted towards the final mark for the teams. Namibian dancers did not disappoint, as they clinched an assortment of medals in the five cate-
gories, led by a gold medal in the Dance Musical category, and three silver medals in the Dance Folk, Dance Hip-Hop and Dance Contemporary compositions. Dance Sport Namibia secretary general Venancius Rukero said that the Namibian dance team won medals in all categories we entered, and we are extremely proud of this achievement. Rukero said, “our dancers spent countless hours preparing for this event and we are pleased with the results. “The international jury each year awards five special awards overall. This includes Best Dance Team, Sissi Award for Dance, Artistic Direction, Special Mention of the Jury and Barcelona Dance Award 2022” Rukero added. “We were thrilled to
announce that we won the Special Mention of the Jury award. Our contemporary dance item, titled 'The Lord is Coming', took away the breath of the audience and also of the jury. It communicated a strong message of hope and truth,” he said. Rukero applauded the team for a splendid performance and for making the country proud at a highly competitive platform, such as the Barcelona International Dance Competition. “It was an honour and privilege to represent our beautiful country abroad. We hope that this is the beginning of many more international events. We would like to thank our gold sponsor Pupkewitz Megatech and all our parents and colleagues who assisted with our trip to Barcelona” Rukero said.

excellent for golf with a slightly north east wind turning south west later that helped to cool things down a bit. The field was led out by Stefanus Bonfatius looking to regain the title from long time rival Likius Nande. Round one saw Douw van Wyk shoot an excellent 75 gross with Edwin Kutara just one behind on a 76 gross.

The end of day one however saw Stefanus with a one shot lead over Kevin. In the “B “Division Des Benson came in with excellent rounds of 77 and 76 gross, leaving him two shots off the lead and 12 shots ahead of his nearest rival Tienie De Wet.

FNB Kudu in aksie op Walvisbaai Rudi Bowe Nouwillens waar, nog nie Kudu Park nie, maar ten minste speel Kudus more teen die besoekende RehoFalcons van Rehoboth op die Jan Wilken Stadium in Walvisbaai. Dit nadat hulle noodgedwonge hul eerste twee tuiswedstryde in Swakopmund moes speel weens die onbeskikbaarheid van n speelveld in Walvisbaai. Kudus is uitgehonger om more n goeie indruk voor hul tuis skare voort te sit met of sonder die ooswind. Die toeskouers in die hawedorp kan hul gereed kry vir lekker hardloop rugby. Die eerste span van Kudus wat tans die top possies op die punte leer is na goeie oorwinnings teen Trustco United in Windhoek en Rehoboth en Unam in Swakopmund is die span in n posisie waar daar nie meer kanse is om te verbrou nie. In n klipharde westryd laas naweek in
Windhoek, kon die span daarin slaag om united 2 te klop. More kry hul kans om hul posisie op te punte leer aansienlik te verbeter met rehofalcon wat tot dusver sukkel om kop bo water te hou. Met n besering of twee in die eerste span gaan Falcons more te doen kry met n oorgehaalde Kudu span met net een doel voor oe, en dit is om die maksimum van 6 punte te verwerf en sodoende te verseker hul bly bo aan die punteleer. Kudus het nie die grootste pak voorspelers nie, maar afrigter, Gawan Esterhuizen, wat die kun-
digheid van die ervare HautaVeii nadergeroep het om met die voorspelers te help werp ongetwyfeld vrugte af. Die kudu pak het nog elke wedstryd gedomineer en alhoewel
bitter min te sien was oor RehoFalcon, kan hulle ook verseker wees dinge gaan warm raak voorlangs. Agterlangs is Quinton Simon nader geroep om met die agterspelers te
werk. Ook sy handewerk kan nie misgekyk word nie met die Kudu agterlyn wat hierdie jaar driee druk wat nog net in New Sealand gesien is. Kaptein, Cameron
Langenhoven, lei van voor en bring die beste uit sy speelers en met LezardoVos en Joshua Jacobs vorm hul n gedugte trio wat tot dusver hul opponent oorskadu het. Soos genoem loop die Kudu agterlyn soos n stroomtrein en Falcons sal hul keer moet ken as die agterlyn op dreef is soos wat met die United wedstryd gebeur het. Die tweede span van Kudus het hul eerste twee wedstryde teen Rehoboth en Unam verloor maar is weer op die wen pad met hul oorwinning teen die tweede span van Trustco United. Hul sal more wil voortbou op die wen in Windhoek. Die span is voorlang versterk met die terugkeer van die onder 20 nationale spelers Zander Jansen en Gregory Namaseb. Falcons hul gereed maak vir n tawwe stryd
met kudus wat oor n baie ervare agtal beskik. Dis egter agterlangs wat die span effelig in die broek is met beserings wat n groot faktor speel. Nietemin behoort kudus 2 met redelike gemak die ene te wen. Die publiek kan hulle regmaak vir twee uithalerwedstryde. Die klub nooi sy getroue ondersteuners uit om die pawiljoene in bloutekom vol paken die span op n span op n sportiewe manier aan te moedig. Die hekke maak 11:00 oop met die eertse wedstryd wat 14:00 begin en die wydstryd tussen eerste spanne van Kudus en Falcons pak mekaar 15:45. Verversings asook n kontant kroeg sal beskikbaar wees. Hekgeld is N$30.00 per volwassene en N$ 20.00 per skolier asook N$ 20.00 per motor en N$ 50.00 per coolbox.
