Shameless plundering

inside New Terminal Open Day

Page 3

Body of baby on dump site Floris Steenkamp The plundering of the coast's natural environment and natural resources continues. In the latest trend people are entering the Namib Naukluft Park near Swakopmund and destroy various forms of vegetation for firewood. Pictures here show where a Tamerisk has been plundered and bundled for firewood. This is one of dozens of examples. A tour operator at Swakopmund confirmed they have been contacting the Ministry of Environment and Tourism's officials at Swakopmund numerous times over the plundering of the vegetation in the Park, but their complaints fell of deaf ears.

How not to do it.......

Hands off our white mussels

Floris Steenkamp

Only hours after the Namib Times reported on Tuesday of Fermar Seafoods CC harvesting tons of white mussel on the beaches between Pelican Point and Paaltjies (the local name for the border with Sandwich Harbour), the Ministry of Fisheries cancelled the business' exploratory fishing right to harvest clams and white mussel.

Deputy Sheriff attaches TransNamib property TransNamib had to learn the hard way this week that an emolument attach order against an employee's salary is not to be taken lightly. The national rail carrier failed to pay over the amount they deducted from the employee to an attorney's trust fund. That resulted in the Deputy Sheriff on Tuesday attaching all of TransNamib's office furniture at the Walvis Bay railway station. Namib Times learnt reliably the amount for which the rail carrier was taken Continues on page 2

Waste removal fees paid by ratepayers must be re-invested in better and sustainable waste disposal infrastructure and techniques. This was the call recently by the Minister of Environment and Tourism, Pohamba Shifeta, during a visit to the Walvis Bay municipal dump site. The Walvis Bay municipality applied for an environmental clearance certificate from the environment ministry for the dump site. A clearance certificate was granted. The approval was granted in terms of Government Gazette No. 6753, dated 1 November 2018. Continues on page 2

TransNamib property Continued on page 2 to task stood at N$8 000, but additional costs incurred pushed the total amount payable to N$18 000. “TransNamib paid the same day and the furniture was returned. It is just shameful that funds of an already burdened state-owned-enterprise is squandered as a result of administrative negligence”, remarked a source close to the incident. Note: if a person incurs bad debt, the creditor can approach a court for the issuing of an emolument attachment order. In terms of this order, a monthly amount that may not exceed a certain percentage of total disposal income can be deducted against the debtor's salary. Refusing to deduct the money or failing to pay over the money to the attorney who obtained the order is therefore regarded as a bad idea.

Water crisis in Usakos Sharlien Tjambari

The Usakos Town Council refuses to sell water to some houses in the community, since the introduction of the pre-paid water system six years ago, left many houses with overdue water accounts from previous house owners. Municipal accounts of many residents in the mining town run between N$10 000-40 000. These accounts were never closed after these peoples' forefathers died in the early nineties. Namib Times visited a few residents in the Hakhaseb location in Usakos to get a grip on the severity of the situation. An unemployed lady in her late thirties told the Namib Times she inherited the house she now lives in, from her grandfather who died in 1993. The last time she got a statement from the council was in 2015. The account was in arrears of N$28 814. “How am I going to settle this account if I don't find a job? I try to find a job but have no luck.” The lady said. She said the little money she gets form her family members, she uses to put food on the table for her children and for electricity. “To live without water is not easy”, she said. Many houses in the Hakhaseb community don't have water, toilets don't work, and they are blocked. Not only is the smell terrible, it is unhygienic, especially in a country where Hepatitis E is a problem. “We go into the bushes because we can't use already blocked toilets that can't flush. The residents in this community explain that using the bushes as a toilet is not safe at night. This is especially true for old ladies and young girls. An elderly lady said that the water situation is really a serious matter. “This water situation is very worrisome. The fact that the council does not hear us out is a major problem. They hardly come to us to hear our concerns. We have attempted to see management numerous times, but our meetings are always postponed. We are tired of this.” Said a senior citizen. Another affected resident, a young lady, said she inherited her house from her parents. Water to her house was disconnected, the pipes were cut, and her toilet pot was removed by council years some years ago already, but the bill is already at N$40 000, “How is this possible? I would have understood if the pipes were connected to the house. We need help! How can the council charge me for water, but I don't even have water pipes anymore?” Residents in Hakhaseb and the informal settlements in Usakos says the council pays no attention to them. Decisions are made at the top levels without consulting the community. Namib Times is still waiting for a reply from the Usakos Town Council.

He further explained he employs two teams of people to harvest the clams and he is renting a premises from a well-known fishing company in Walvis Bay where the clams are packed, frozen and exported to Asia. Namib Times obtained pictures taken in secret which shows thousands of white mussel offloaded and packed at Fermar's premises every day for many months already. Fernandez also explained to the newspaper the clam resources is adequate to start a fishery. He expressed confidence white mussel would become a quota specie. Fernandez also produced a letter in which the Permanent Secretary of fisheries, Dr. Moses Maurihungirire, granting Fermar Seafoods an exemption on the size of white mussel they can harvest. The Minister of Fisheries seemingly is not sharing Fernandez' white mussel dreams, as the exploratory license was summarily cancelled this week. Fernandez also confirmed that personally to Namib Times.

During a recent visit to the Walvis Bay landfill site, the Minister of Environment and Tourism Pohamba Shifeta said the dump site might not be perfect, but expressed satisfaction with interventions at the facility to keep environmental impacts at a low. He also expressed satisfaction that all procedures were followed properly by the municipality to apply for the clearance certificate. The Minister assured checks and balances would be carried out by his Ministry on an ongoing basis and also said new, more detailed regulations for waste management is in the pipeline. It was at this point Shifeta called on the municipality to continuously reinvest waste disposal charges collected from rate payers into proper waste management infrastructure and techniques.

Handing Over of IGA's Materials and Equipment Isaac Chikosi

A hand over ceremony was held on 1 August at the Ministry of Mines & Energy Building, Swakopmund. The ceremony was an occasion to hand over Income Generating Activity (IGA's) materials and equipment. The Income Generating Activity (IGA) Grant is a funding in form of materials and equipment given to small community members to start up small businesses and projects. According to the Governor of the Erongo region, Cleophas Mutjavikua, in a speech read on his behalf, “This encourages community members to embark on economically viable projects that could be sustained in the long run.” The central focus is to alleviate poverty and to contribute to the development of human resources says Mutjavikua, by empowering people to identify their economic needs and explore ways and means of fulfilling those needs; by developing self-confidence and ability to undertake income generating activities through appropriate and adequate training and motivation; by providing opportunities for continuous upgrading of vocational knowledge and skills for gainful employment and by developing a team spirit for working together for sustainable social and economic growth. “It is my sincere wish that this materials and equipment will be utilised optimally for the purpose they are meant for”, Mutjavikua said.

An autopsy must determine whether a newborn whose body was found on the Walvis Bay dumpsite was as a result of a stillborn or whether the child was murdered shortly after birth. The gruesome discovery was made by workers of the dumpsite on Wednesday, 7 August. The lifeless baby was wrapped in a brown towel and placed inside a plastic bag. It is suspected that the mother gave birth to a full-term baby boy between Tuesday and Wednesday before dumping the baby at the dumping site. The baby was declared dead by a doctor at the Walvis Bay state hospital. The body was taken to the Police Morgue for a post-mortem examination to determine if the baby was killed before he was dumped or whether he was stillborn. Family members who suspect a relative or friend who was pregnant gave birth but now is without a baby must contact Detective Chief Inspector Shangula at 081 667 6820 or Detective Warrant Officer Kalipi at the Gender Based Violence Division at 081 296 2322.

Assault most reported case in July Isaac Chikosi

With 14 cases of House breaking recorded at Mondesa Police Station, Assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm was highest with 21 cases recorded at the station last month only. These statistics were presented by Constable Kauyova from Mondesa Police Station during a meeting between church leaders and Nampol representatives. Out of the top 12 cases reported at the station, domestic violence follows closely with nine cases reported and seven cases of robbery within the month of July. In addition to this, four cases of fraud including ATM fraud were recorded at Mondesa Police Station.

Church Leaders asked to work with Police Isaac Chikosi

Church leaders was asked for betterment and cooperation with the community in a joint meeting between the Church leaders and Nampol this past weekend at Vrede Rede Primary School in Swakopmund. A strong message was delivered by Warrant Officer Ileni Shapumba around the fact that churches are not separate from communities, the reason everyone needs to work together. Inclusive in this meeting were representatives from the Swakopmund municipality and from the Ministry of Health and Social Services. Warrant Officer Ileni Shapumba, Unit Commander for Community Affairs in the Erongo Region addressed the leaders of various denominations and congregations on contemporary issues pertaining crime and disorder. He specifically highlighted those in the Mondesa and DRC settlement areas. Shapumba reiterated the fact that the police and the church should work hand in hand to achieve and maintain peace and stability. Shapumba raised concerns on the ongoing complaints from members of the community in the residential areas where some of these noisy churches operate into the late nights and early morning hours. Shapumba said that everyone in the community has rights and that it is important to keep others in consideration. “We need to regulate our activities and make sure they are in compliance with the law.” Shapumba said. He gave his opinion on the existing argument where people compare the noise emanating from churches and the noise created by shebeens. “Churches cannot compare themselves to shebeens. A church is a place of order and morality, therefore not comparable to night life at all.” Furthermore, Shapumba raised his concerns around the sporadic mushrooming of churches because the proper channels are not followed. After this Shapumba touched a more serious matter. He warned the leaders against concealment of crime in cases reported to them in their capacity of leaders. Sometimes pastors are aware of domestic abuse and violence but choose not to report such issues. “The police are appointed by law to investigate any offence or alleged offence. When people come to you and report such offences, you should report this to the police or advise whoever is reporting the matter to do so.” Shapumba said. Numerous reports of church patrons mugged or robbed on their way back home from services in the wee hours of the morning have also been reported. Shapumba urged the leaders to consider their flock in this regard and avoid bringing the good name of the church into disrepute. A social worker representing the Ministry of Health and Social Services also aired her concerns stating that many people, especially children reach her office after having first reported their problems to their church leaders. She encouraged individuals present not to assume that all issues affecting people can be handled completely inside church. By this saying that all necessary stakeholders are necessary to give the correct support and assistance to those in need. Station Commander of the Mondesa Police Station Inspector H Uugwanga emphasised her concerns over the increase in the trend of informal adoption of children. This rings especially true for teenage girls taken into the homes of church elders of leaders. “Even if you see that the children are in need, it is important to follow the proper channels of adoption with social services.” Uugwanga said.

Paratus expands its Mobile LTE network to Walvis Bay and Swakopmund speeds to contend with the demand on bandwidth. We certainly want to take

Windhoek, Namibia – 07 August 2019: Paratus Namibia announced the completion of the initial phase of its National Mobile-LTE rollout plan. Paratus will be launching LTE in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund this week. Paratus has invested in its very own independent Mobile-LTE network to be able to offer both consumers and businesses an alternative to current offerings. By independent, it means Paratus infrastructure from end-to-end and not being reliant on any other service provider in the country. After the completion of the Trans Kalahari Fiber (TKF) connected directly to WACS in Swakopmund and extending to Buitepos border to the east of Namibia, Paratus was able to offer customers higher capacity at far more affordable prices. “We have also established more network redundancy to international traffic out of the country delivering a reliable and redundant service,” says Paratus Namibia Managing Director, Andrew Hall. “Paratus currently offers one of the most affordable rates on data top-ups at merely N$15 per gigabyte. With the launch of our Mumwe product, a first of its kind in Namibia, we are now able to allow our customers to tap into one centralised

data pool from multiple technologies using either Mobile-LTE, Fixed-LTE, Fiber or a WiMAX connection,” he explains. Paratus has deployed its own Fiber network in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund and can now also provide WiMAX services to both towns. “The expansion of our Mobile-LTE network to the coast provides our customers with the option of enjoying the same great service, even when travelling away from home,” he concluded. For more information contact any one of the two outlets at the coast. The Paratus office in Walvis Bay is situated on the corner Hanna Mupetami and Moses Garoeb Street and can be reached by phone on +264 83 300 1850. TV Link is an official Paratus reseller in Swakopmund and is situated in the Tivoli Building at 27 Libertina Amathila Avenue and can be reached by phone on +264 64 406 097.

Paratus bridges the West coast and the East coast of Africa A route that would normally take more than 60 hours to

drive with a car, can now be done in about 31 milliseconds on the new Paratus Africa fiber network that stretches from the West coast to the East coast of Africa. The Trans-Kalahari Fiber (TKF) network extends 4160 kilometres from the West Africa Cable System (WACS) cable landing station in Swakopmund to the EASSY cable landing station in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Moreover, the route is under one single Autonomous System Number (ASN), a feat that has been eluding most African operators. The fiber network interconnects with selected operators in various countries en route to ensure reliability in the overall management of the fiber network across the continent. Paratus Group COO Schalk Erasmus says this project is part of Paratus Africa's aggressive infrastructure expansion strategy with Nimbus Infrastructure. “Nimbus Infrastructure is a Paratus Africa strategic partner and a significant shareholder in Paratus Namibia.” Paratus started with construction of the cable route from Windhoek to Swakopmund in

2017 and at the end of April 2018, completed the second-phase route from Windhoek to the Botswana border. Part of the capital used for this project through Namibia was funded by Nimbus Infrastructure. “This is a huge milestone and a massive achievement. We can now deliver WACS capacity to land-locked countries in which we have operational branches including Botswana and Zambia,” he says. Operators on both the east and west coast of Africa are dependent on undersea cable access and when outages occur, are mostly reliant on alternative cables on the same side of the continent. Erasmus says this new route will allow operators to think differently about their requirements for diverse routes within and around the African continent. “Paratus Africa will continue to extend fiber routes with own infrastructure builds in order to maintain uptime, reliability and scalability to its clients, should there be any degradation in service levels. We believe that the fiber optic network provides high-quality reliability and scalability with high access

advantage of the countless opportunities in Africa and we're therefore engaging

other land-locked nations to leverage our fiber backbone and WACS capacity,” he concludes.

Sandra Malan's road to success Appointed sales manager at Novel Ford in Walvis Bay Sandra Malan's adventure in the vehicle sales sector started out as receptionist at Volkswagen (Autohaus) thirteen years ago. A work adventure that soon took her

from that position to vehicle sales repre-

sentative and later as sales manager at

Pupkewitz Nissan and then branch manager. She recently joined Novel Ford at Walvis Bay as sales manager. “My advance through the ranks provided me with the opportunity to get to know the vehicle market well and slate my career skills”, explains Malan. “It is a real honour to work with my mentor, Mandie Holloway, once more (Holloway and Malan worked together at Autohaus). We are a winning team and look forward to work with Novel Ford clients at the coast. Ford is a formidable vehicle brand and I am super excited to take on this market”, said Malan during an interview this week.

An der Atlantikküste,in der Namibwüste “Strategisches Tor zu internationalen Märkten” Walvis Bay (MW) „Das neue Container-Terminal im Hafen Walvis Bay ist hiermit eröffnet!’ Stolz und Genugtuung schwingt in der Stimme des Präsidenten Dr. Hage Geingob mit, als er am 2. August die feierliche Einweihung dieses nun abgeschlossenen Großprojektes vornimmt. Vorausgegangen waren viele Jahre der Planung und Bauarbeiten. Die beiden ProjektVerantwortlichen E l z e v i r G e l d e rbloem für Namport und ein weiterer Vertreter für China Harbour Engineering Company CHEC haben diese große Herausforderung durch enge und konstruktive Zusammenarbeit sehr gut gemeistert. Das Projekt wurde geboren, als im Jahr 2008 deutlich wurde, dass das bestehende Container-Terminal bei steigendem Umschlag nicht noch weiter ausgebaut werden könne. Der Baubeginn erfolgte nach diversen Optionsprüfungen und anschließenden Ausschreibungen im Mai 2014 mit der Firma CHEC. Dabei galt es, neben der „eigentlichen” Arbeit (Landgewinnung im Meer für eine neue - künstliche - Insel und Errichten der Infrastruktur darauf) auch auf so wichtige Aspekte wie die kulturellen Unterschiede zwischen den chinesischen Firmenangestellten und den lokalen Beschäftigen Rücksicht zu

Und last, but not least: Im Norden der Stadt, im Nordhafen, südlich der Guano Insel, wurde eine neue Öltanker Jetty mit zwei Entladeplätzen ( Benzin, Diesel, Kerosin) gebaut, die ebenfalls in Kürze d e n B e t r i e b aufnehmen wird. Der Anschluß an ein Tanklager mit einer Lagerkapazität von 75.000m³ ist gegeben. Kavin Harry, amtierender CEO von Namport, hierzu: „Unser erklärtes Ziel ist es, Walvis Bay zum bevorzugten Tor für das südliche Afrika auszubauen”. In seiner Ansprache übermittelte der Botschafter der Volksrepublik China, Zhang Yiming, persönliche GeburtstagsGlückwünsche des Staatspräsidenen der VR China („gewissermaßen im Auftrag von 1,3 Milliarden Menschen“) an Herrn Dr. Hage Geingob und äußerte darin seine Zuversicht für weitere gute Zusammenarbeit zwischen den beiden Ländern. „Dieses Container-Terminal ist einer der wichtigsten Erfolge zwischen Namibia und China hinsichtlich der Zusammenarbeit auf dem wirtschaftlichen Sektor.” Bis zur geplanten Wiederinbetriebnahme am 24. August wird der Betrieb im Hafen für ca. 10 Tage u.a. wegen der Verlegung von über 3000 Containern ruhen.

Das erste Container- Schiff, die „Maersk Karun“, legt am frühen Morgen des 2. August zum Löschen ihrer Ladung am neuen Container Terminal an.

Liebe Küstenleser! Eine interessante Optik weist der Schwiegermutterstuhl-Kaktus (Echinocactus grusonii) auf: Er ist fast rund mit einer leicht abgeflachten Oberseite - geradezu ideal dafür, seinen Allerwertesten nach anstrengender Arbeit erschöpft ’raufplumpsen zu lassen. Doch dieser wohlgeformte

Media release

BAN warns against surcharging The Bankers Association of Namibia learnt that some merchants continue to add a surcharge (additional fee) to card transactions or are setting minimum or maximum transaction amounts as condition for accepting debit or credit cards for payment. Such practices have a negative impact on consumers and are in direct violation of VISA International Operating Regulations and MasterCard. Acquirers and Merchants must comply with all card operating rules and regulations to protect the integrity of the payment systems.

Merchants are reminded that they are required to: • Treat all debit and credit card payments like any other method of payment without addi-

tional costs (surcharges) added to the value. • Honour valid debit and credit cards in their acceptance category regardless of the dollar

amount of the purchase. Acquiring banks are reminded to ensure: • Merchants do not differentiate methods of payments by impo-

sing a surcharge fee on any card payments. • Merchants do not impose a minimum or maximum purchase amount for the acceptance of card transactions. “Carrying around large amounts of cash pose a risk to the individual. With a debit or credit

card, you can pay for goods and services in a safe and secure manner. Cards also offer a fast and convenient way to shop. Penalising consumers for using payment cards is not only in contravention of card operating rules, but also unfairly shifts the cost of electronic payments onto the consumer” says Sarel van Zyl, BAN Chairperson. The public is encour-

aged to report any noncompliance with this notice to the Payments Association of Namibia (PAN). If PAN becomes aware of a merchant's non-compliance with any operating rules and regulations, PAN may notify the acquirer of such non-compliance and the acquirer must promptly ensure the merchant discontinues the non-compliance practice immediately.

Global parkrun phenomenon Contributed

Windhoek joins the global parkrun phenomenon as from this weekend. Swakopmund was the first town outside South Africa to join this global phenomenon when in April 2017 almost 200 participants took part in the first event. Walvis Bay then followed in February 2018 in which an overwhelming 338 participants took part. parkrun fever has now firmly entrenched itself in Namibia with the capital, Windhoek becoming the third town to host a weekly parkrun with the inauguration event to be hosted by Southern African parkrun CEO and running legend, Bruce Fordyce and Gill Fordyce COOtomorrow, Saturday, 10 August. The parkrun concept is simple – turn up every Saturday at 08h00 and walk, run or volunteer. All events are 5km, free, open to everyone, and are safe and easy to take part in. The only requirement is that you have to register once off, beforehand on the website www.parkrun.co.za/register. Says Fordyce: “parkrun is all about inclusiveness and wellbeing. There are no winners. It is just you and the clock. We want as many people as possible to feel part of a real local community brought together by our events, as well as the global parkrun family.” parkrun as a concept had humble beginnings when only 13 runners participated in the first parkrun in London's Bushy Park in 2004. Since then the event has spread to 21 countries worldwide, with neighbouring South Africa first adopting the concept in November 2011 when

only 26 participants arrived at the first event. Now more than 50,000 participants pitch up every Saturday morning to run or walk 5km in 212 different locations across South Africa including Namibia and iSwatini. At present the Namibian parkruns are hosted as a separate region within South Africa, but according to Fordyce, when there are several local parkruns, Namibia will establish its own identity. The first Windhoek parkrun will take place on Saturday, 10 August at 08h00 at the Windhoek Golf and Country Club, in Windhoek. There is no cost involved and participants are only required to register for the first run. In order for your time to be registered, participants are required to bring along a printed copy of their registration barcode. According to Michelle Wilson, parkrun Ambassador Namibia, the event is organised in its entirety by volunteers. If people wish to become part of the volunteer team, they can email windhoek helpers @parkrun.com or contact the Event Director for Windhoek parkrun, Sammy Gorman on 081 438 1889 or to register visit the Windhoek parkrun website at www.parkrun.co.za/windhoek or contact Michelle on 081 360 7007.
