inside LHU saga to Pres. Windhoek Crematorium Geingob

Body of one day old discovered at Walvis Bay waste disposal site halts all cremations Floris Steenkamp

Problems with gas installation cited as the cause - coastal funeral homes suffer

Rudi Bowe The best she could do to render some kind of dignity to this lifeless little body, lying among household garbage on the rubbish dump, was to pick up a piece of dirty carton in her equally dirty and sunweathered hands and making waving motions to ward off the flies. After the pictures were taken, a dirty old rag was used to cover the baby's body. Ready for the Namibian Police to do what they have done at the Walvis Bay dump site so many times over and over: that is to remove the baby's body from among the rubble and taking it to the police morgue. Trying to puzzle out how did it come about that this baby, estimated to be only a day old, landed up in a garbage bag and was dumped at the waste disposal site. Hopefully an arrest and a mother appearing before a magistrate on charges of baby dumping. Perhaps murder? These scenes were playing off at the Walvis Bay dumpsite on Wednesday afternoon after dump scavengers discovered the body of a dayold baby. It is suspected the baby was placed in a household garbage bag and found its way through the municipal waste disposal system to the waste site. People were visibly shaken. There was an eerie silence as everyone awaited the arrival of the Namibian Police. The light skinned body was taken to the police mortuary where an autopsy will be carried out to determine the dead child's ethnic origin and what the cause of death was. At the time of going to press there were more questions than answers. The deceased's gender was also yet to be announced. For the coast this is a horrendous year. In Walvis Bay three babies were dumped. Three more in Swakopmund. It means six babies dumped in the first five months of 2018 at the coast. Never had a chance on life. Continues on page 2

Undertakers at the coast said this week frustrations are growing, as no cremations are taking place at Namibia's only crematorium, the Windhoek Crematorium currently. Family members of the deceased are not interested in explanations anymore, as to why weeks go by in which they do not receive back the cremated remains of their loved ones. “We are really frustrated. We cannot give our clients answers and explanations any more. People are suffering emotionally as a result of losing loved ones, yet they cannot have final answers as to when the ashes of their loved ones are returned to them”, a parlour owner of Walvis Bay said this week. Phone calls to other funeral houses confirmed just that. Funeral undertakers usually make use of the cremation services at Upington in South Africa's Northern Cape in the event of the Windhoek Crematorium not functioning. However, this could increase the cost of a cremation by as much as N$8 000, it was further explained. Not only is the Upington Crematorium's cremation tariff higher than Windhoek Crematorium, but the cost of transport is also significantly higher due to the long distances from Windhoek and other towns to Upington. Also, the South African authorities require additional paperwork, as mortal remains are literally exported from Namibia and the cremated returns then repatriated. “It takes additional time and it increases the cost of a cremation”, confirmed an undertaker at Swakopmund. An inquiry to a senior official in the City of Windhoek confirmed the Windhoek Crematorium is currently experiencing major problems with the facility's gas installation. The last cremations were carried out in the first week of May, meaning for the past month no cremations took place. There are also no chances of re-activating the old diesel-burning crematorium, as it is in a state of total disrepair. The new crematorium uses gasenergy, but the problem for the gas installation is apparently very complex and could take time to repair. One funeral parlour in Walvis Bay is sitting with the mortal remains of sixteen people who have to be cremated. With Windhoek Crematorium apparently not being able to provide a time frame as to when everything would normalise, loved ones are becoming frustrated. “We even have a family overseas who is having a very bad experience, as they do not know when their deceased loved one's ashes would be sent on to Europe. It creates a negative perception of how we do things here in Namibia”, remarked a third funeral parlour owner.

It was over even before it began. The question was asked again on Wednesday. Not a new question, but a question to which we seem not to be able to get an answer to. Abortions are illegal in Namibia and the country, both on Government level and private sector level are trying to keep mechanisms in place for disheartened mothers to give off their new-born babies and to afford these little people a fair chance to life. The Deputy Mayor of Walvis Bay, Councillor Penelope Martin, was the first to publicly speak on the latest incident: “Baby dumping is an issue for which I will continue to try and find a solution. I believe girls are dumping their babies because they might still be in school. Others are victims of rape and many are walking with the harsh reality they don't have any means to care for the child they are expecting. Others don't know where to knock for help and get answers to the pressing problems.

Need for better cooperation between unions and public enterprises Sharlien Tjambari At the opening of the 3rd Annual General Meeting of Public Enterprises Chief Executive Officer's Forum, which took place in Swakopmund yesterday, Public Enterprises Minister Leon Jooste confirmed is unhappiness with the fact trade unions only approach his ministry when they need help. Jooste explained: “We have met with the unions quite often and most of the time they only meet with us when there is a problem. And that is exactly my problem. We should not only be meeting with unions when there is a problem. Unions are key stakeholders in the country's being and what I often found was that somehow [and sometimes] there is a failure to share accurate information with unions”. As a result of the sharing of inaccurate information in these both-ways communication platforms information meetings often turn into conflict meetings. “We would like to have fixed annual meetings with the unions and share information”, Jooste offered. Dr Audrin Mathe, the Chairperson of the

Contributed The term Blue Economy is now widely used by Namibian leaders. More specifically, in the fishing industry where it is acknowledged in the country's 5th Development Plan (NDP5) that without a healthy ocean and healthy fish resources, the potential of a Blue Economy cannot be fully unlocked.

The concept of a Blue Economy simply means the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods, jobs and ensuring the continuation of the ocean's health (defined by the World Bank). However, it is also now accepted that a Blue Economy lies beyond the country's fishing industry only. To unlock a Blue Economy for Namibia would then simply mean all sectors of the economy depending in one or another way, on the ocean need to assume the responsibility to keep the ocean clean and healthy and to derive the maximum economic potential from what we extract from the ocean. In his recent keynote address in Walvis Bay, at the opening of a stakeholder conference on the proposed opening of a marine engineering and maritime studies school in Namibia, the Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources Bernhard Esau, demonstrated to what detail a Blue Economy can be defined. He took the current situation in Namibia as an example, where there is still a lack of local skills in the marine engineering and maritime sectors (both Blue Economy sectors). As long as Namibia must make use of foreign skills in these sectors, that means the country has not yet unlocked its potential to create as many as possible seagoing jobs for Namibians or creating jobs on land critical for the maritime sectors like marine engineering, ship repair and marine industrial engineering. Few other examples of sectors and industries that are dependent on a healthy ocean for job creation and economic growth: The Fishing Industry: according to Minister Esau the Namibian fishing industry is the largest income earner after mining. It employs 16 500 people directly, sustains a further 45 000 indirect jobs and generates N$10 billion annually in export revenues. If the fishing industry depletes fish resources or lacks the ability to add value to raw fish products to maximise profits, the Blue Economy potential is diminished. Maritime Transport: Walvis Bay is the gateway for trade between the world markets and Southern

Chief Executive Officer's Forum, indicated that this PE-CEO's Forum was established to encourage co-operation between public enterprises, in order to advance the socioeconomic goals of the Government of Namibia as their common shareholder. The forum creates an opportunity for public enterprises to give input into legislation, policies and other directives. It also provides a platform for exchange of ideas on key matters affecting public enterprises such as governance, strategy and operations. This engagement facilitates benchmarking of best practices and promotes skills transfer. Ton the picture herewith, the Minister of Public Enterprises Leon Jooste during the official opening of the meeting yesterday.

African markets. It forms part of the global shipping network where as many as 80 % of trade goods are transported by sea (World Bank). It is important for Namibia to guard its Blue Economy potential by preventing marine pollution. That includes maintaining strict standards for all forms of shipping to prevent oil spills and oil pollution. Equally, all land-based processes related to port operations need to be operating safe and free from polluting the ocean. Tourism: Polluted oceans and beaches are certain to negatively influence marine tourism. Tourism in all its spheres has the responsibility to assist keeping the ocean and beaches clean and healthy, in order to maximise job creation and earnings from marine- and beach tourism. Waste Management, including sewer management and air purity: Namibia can only maintain its Blue Economy potential as long as it prevents and controls the pollution of the ocean and beaches by reducing the presence of plastics in the ocean, maintain pristine beaches and at all cost prevent any forms of sewer water and other waterborne pollutants from the ocean. In this instance the fishing industry has already close than two decades ago installed measures to reduce contaminated water from fish processing pumped into the sea and to curb air pollution from various fishing industry processes like fish meal production. (Sources: The World Bank; Commonwealth and own research). Safety and Security: the protection of Namibia's Exclusive Economic Zone against illegal, unreported, unregulated fishing (IUU), the dumping of fish and working with other nations to curb illegal, unlicensed fishing activities are also a critical element in protecting and maintaining a Blue Economy. A clean ocean fights climate change: The world’s oceans play an integral part in the fight against climate change by serving as so called carbon sinks. There is a direct, positive link between a healthy ocean and its ability to absorb carbon dioxide.

Fire incident at Steve’s T/Away A fire incident occurred at the well-known Steve's Take Away in Walvis Bay on Tuesday. It is believed the fire was caused when a heated light bulb fell from its fitting in the ceiling, landed on flammable material which then caught fire. Fire damage was minimal. The business operations were not negatively influences. As the Walvis Bay municipal fire brigade was leaving the scene after assisting Steven’s Take Away’s management and staff, another call of a fire was received. The caller indicated the fire to be in the same area of town. After again responding to the area, the fire brigade could not detect any other fires. The Municipal Fire Chief Dennis Basson in the aftermath said it is a criminal offence for people to make hoax calls to any emergency services. He was reluctant to jump to any conclusions and did not exclude the possibility that the second call was caused by some confusion by the caller. Chief Basson called upon the public to always keep fire safety in mind. Fire prevention and safety rest upon the following pillars: Preparedness: Install smoke alarms if possible, to be alert and for prompt reaction. Know your local emergency numbers e.g Fire Brigade, Ambulance and Police Come out alive: Make provision and know your secondary exit or emergency escape routes. Keep low at all times during a fire emergency evacuation to protect yourself against the heat and to ensure you get adequate oxygen. Electrical Safety: Avoid overloading of electrical circuits. Have all your electrical defaults fixed only by a qualified licensed electrician. Only use qualified electricians for electrical installations. Candle (open flame) Usages: Never place a candle near highly combustible materials. Never leave a candle unattended for a longer period in the presence of children. Safe house keeping: Store all flammable liquids and gas cylinders in an enclosed area. Do regular inspection and cleaning. Emergency Numbers: 081 922, 081 122 0833 or 081 122 0888.

Two men hire robber to rob them and share money later Eileen van der Schyff

Kuisebmond: A Security guard and cashier at the Le Palace Gambling house faked an armed robbery by allegedly hiring a robber to rob the two at the local Gambling house while on duty. It is alleged that on Sunday, 3 June, an armed suspect entered the said Gambling house and pointed a firearm at Pineas Gerhard Moroko, a security guard who was standing with Willemina Merida, the cashier. He tied them up and took cash to the amount of N$45 200 and two cell phones. It was detected that during the preliminary investigation, the security guard and cashier faked the robbery and further investigation brought to light the two were not really robbed at all. They allegedly hired someone from Windhoek to rob them while on duty, and later share their unlawful earnings between the three of them.

Petrol theft the cause of truck explosion Two trucks parked next to one another caught fire and was totally destroyed by the flames on Tuesday. The incident occurred twenty kilometers from Omaruru on the route to Kalkfeld. The trucks were stationary next the road at a rest stop. A Unitrans Namibia Ltd tanker truck, carrying thirty thousand liters of petrol, caught fire. An explosion soon followed and the inferno that ensued also engulfed and destroyed a Zambian-registered truck parked nearby. The Zambian-registered truck was carrying frozen fish. Both trucks’ journeys originated in Walvis Bay. According to the spokesperson of the Namibian Police in Erongo, Deputy Commissioner Erastus Ikuyu, both trucks were found parked close to each other facing Omaruru. The forty one year old driver of the tanker alleges he experienced trouble with the speed of the truck and pulled over and fell asleep. He was nowhere to be found at the scene and was later traced at Otjiwarongo to provide an explanation. The Zambian driver, known only as a certain Mr Luca, disappeared. His whereabouts is still unknown. ¡ Unitrans Namibia is preparing to lay charges of theft and malicious damage to property.

Brand new mayoral vehicle for Swakopmund costs N$700 000 The Swakopmund local authority council has allocated a total of over N$2.2 million for the purchasing of new vehicles. Of this allocated amount, N$700 000 will be used to purchase a new mayoral vehicle whilst the corporate services and finance departments will get new vehicles estimated at N$200 000 each. The traffic department will also be receiving two new patrol vehicles, which will cost the council a total of N$1.4 million. The health section must be thankful for the allocation of N$70 000 for derusting and respraying of its existing vehicles. Gregory J Kauluma They should instead redirect that fiscus and donate vehicles for NAMPOL. What happened to the Mayoral Mercedes Benz German saloon, which is being driven around by traffic officers. Eckhardt Demasius is gone and the way things are going I don't know? Elijah Saushini I do not see any equitable allocation of resources here nor is there any prioritisation. How can one office spend N$700 000 on a single car that only benefits an individual and only allocate a paltry N$70 000 for the health section that need to rich out to the whole community, apparently they are not important, they can do with an old rusty car that need derusting, what a rational council this is. Diana Mutumbulwa Please upgrade our roads in Mondesa/drc cars are being damaged by those roads,and we need a drainage system on our roads, that's a total waste of money,we need more class rooms at our schools and stationaries as well. Engelhard Aggas Ugam So u got 2.2 mil to spend on cars yet u want a forced voluntary contribution of ten dollars from all residents while basic commodities and utilities will increase end of June? We are all being hit hard. Werner van Zyl WTF? Why can't the mayor drive a Jan Japan vehicle worth 80 000 so that the funds can be properly used where it is needed... Stella Diana Ganases I also don't see the need of a new car for the mayor, while there already one is...they can use that N$700 000 and built extra classes at schools as to tell us in the beginning of each school year, there is now space or the classes are full. Mercelin Dankii Gawanas I'm sure that 2.2 million is more than enough to build a whole new block in our overcrowded hospital and still feed the kids at the orphanages for a couple of months. Nelao Nelly Tuhemwe Wonders shall never end! And the hungry remains hungry only waiting for a pathetic "food hamper" on Christmas Day.

Young Tom A vehicle for N$700 000 and tomorrow will hear certain projects could not be implemented due to lack of funds. What is their priorities? Sidwin Taube Well firstly I dont see that the money has to go to any other state institutions as it involves the town council. But also there is no use of buying the mayor a new vehicle as the current one is still in an imaculate condition. Silvio Van Wyk And thats why our goverment is broke and thats why hundreds gets retrenched, some families have no food tonight and they drive luxury cars. Johan Adam Raubenheimer If the mayor had any pride she would make sure her fancy vehicles finances were used for one or two new ambulances! Paul Khachab Swakopmund is going down favor for CEO position. Riaan Vermeulen Whats wrong with a VW Polo? Getting from A to B is the objective? Eu Gene Tht 700 000 was enough for at least 2 fully equipped ambulances. Zuma Diken People stop complaining.The council will buy that vehicle like it or not.. Keep voting my People. Hans FokkenMushroom Strydom The people of swakopmund are the ones who voted the decision makers into power. So. This clear misuse of funds is the will of the people. Denny LoneWolf Saal N$700 000 for Mayor car and N$70 000 for health section to respray old cars. Mariette Brand This is a total waste of money! Our country is starving! Buildings falling apart! Hospitals gone too sh@t! NOT enough schools for all! I can go on and on!!! So a new car will fix all!!! Think again!!!! Andrew Meyer Nee jong..... dit is mos n "BELANGRIKE MAN" en as hy nie die super luukse kar ry nie,,,,, dan geniet hy mos nie aansien nie... Maak mens briesend Yasser Al Zahir The mayor has a Mercedes Benz that's is in use ,why is council buying another vehicle? Denise Bouman Amazing, how do they justify this. Josure Endjala N what about the Mercedes Benz.

Joseph Angula Not all mondesa boy wach your tongue. Danienilo Komesho Shitana God mercy for poor people who never see 700 000 dollars. Mayambi Lolo Kayunde Swapo is corrupt this is their mayor and they pretent to be holy no condermnation at all of this misuse of public money. Kaboy Neshila That is what happen when you glorify the Mayor. The mondesa roads are paved so let's not complain. Lyle T Dempers You vote you get. Peter Steenkamp Shithole. Peter Steenkamp Showoff is more important, no wonder the country is in shambles. Clare Green Valentine Dis nie lank nie dan moet tariewe weer dringend styg. Teer liewer Swakop se strate. Hans-Peter Steinbach Definitely people got their priorities mixed up. They are showing the masses a fat "toffee".

Training for Members of the Topnaar Traditional Council Aonin Fishing Holdings (Pty) Ltd a Walvis Bay-based, wholly Namibian-owned fishing investment company, has trained a group of sixteen (16) members of the Topnaar Traditional Council in much-valued trust management skills this past week. Trustees play a vital role in the management of a business and therefore need the knowledge and skills to fulfill their obligations, and tackle challenges which come with their duties. The Topnaar Traditional Council received the 2-day training on May 24 and 25, as part of the company's commitment to empowering communities with leadership skills, with the primary objective to benefit the Topnaar local community. Aonin Fishing Holdings established the Topnaar Community Foundation Trust, and allocated 10% of its shareholding and dividends to the Foundation. The Foundation's trustees are selected from members of the Topnaar Traditional Council. One of the trustees will also be nominated to serve on the Aonin Fishing Holdings board of directors, to represent the Topnaar Community and to actively take part in the management of the company. The company, with investments in the hake and horse-mackerel fisheries, thereby empowers the Topnaar community to actively participate in strategic and investment decisions in the fisheries sector. The training equipped the trustees to do their work, in applying the company's dividends, in a manner that is transparent and accountable. In addition, the counsellors were updated on investments made by Omaru Fishing (Pty) Ltd and Atlantic Sea Products (Pty) Ltd, in the hake and horse mackerel fisheries sectors respectively over the past twenty years. Omaru Fishing Chief Executive Officer, Ingrith Kasper, says the company considers such training of traditional communities a valuable empowerment tool, an important socially sustainable investment instrument in Namibia's economy, and an essential building block of local socioeconomic development capacity. She says the current economic climate in Namibia requires a sincere sense of responsibility, an understanding of good governance and a commitment to

accountability from every company trustee. The Topnaar Community Foundation trustee training workshop had a practical approach, having been especially designed to provide participants with a clear understanding of the Trust law and its application in Namibia. Topics included core aspects of the Beneficiaries of a Trust and Their Rights; the Duties, Obligations and Responsibilities of Trustees; as well as Liabilities of Trustees in line with recent legal developments in Namibia. Topnaar Traditional Counsellor Sebedeus Swartbooi, thanked Aonin Fishing Holdings for the induction course, which had been facilitated by the legal firm Murorua Kurtz and Kasper Incorporated. He said, “I now understand the investments in which the Foundation has a stake. I can now right-fully protect and defend what is mine!� At the conclusion of the workshop, the 16 participants said that they felt empowered with a much better understanding of the investments made and the key ethical and legal issues of managing a Trust. They were especially happy and positive because the training was conducted in their native, Nama language.

CRAN Hosts Consultative Meeting On Spectrum Assignment MEDIA RELEASE

Namibian High Court Judges' Training Retreat The High Court of Namibia, in collaboration with The Commonwealth Secretariat, conducted a successful Judges' Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Retreat. The 2018 Namibian High Court Judges CPD retreat was held from 28 May to 1 June at the Seaside Hotel and Spa in Swakopmund. The Bangalore Principles on Judicial Independence and Namibia's Guidelines for Ethical Judicial Conduct, place a premium on the continuous professional development of judges. According to the Judge-President of the High Court, the Honourable Justice Petrus T Damaseb, “it is a matter of regret that judges' Continuous Professional Development (CPD) has not enjoyed priority in Namibia. I have, therefore, decided to hold a CPD retreat every year for the judges of the High Court, commencing 2018.” This year's training event

was devoted to the consideration of judicial ethics in the context of judges' conduct both inside court and outside court. Additionally, the judges used the retreat to share experiences in judgment writing. The judges also discussed the performance of the Court. They discussed the problems which result in delays in the finalisation of cases and ways in which the delivery of justice in the High Court can be improvised. The judges also discussed aspects of the Rules of Court and Practice Directives which have presented difficulties and agreed on amendments to deal with the challenges identified.

The Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN) hosted a public consultative meeting on the Regulatory Framework and Spectrum Assignment Strategy on 05 June 2018 at the Namibia Institute of Public Administration and Management (NIPAM). “CRAN deems it prudent to keep abreast of the latest trends and technology developments to ensure the efficient use of and regulation of spectrum in Namibia. The Authority therefore developed a spectrum assignment strategy that will set out objectives for spectrum management and provide clarity in respect of the Authority's approach to efficiently control, plan, administer and license radio spectrum”, stated Festus K Mbandeka, Chief Executive Officer. Mbandeka added that Radio Frequency Spectrum is a limited national resource that is the backbone for the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector that offers communities and commercial entities with various communication offerings. It therefore requires prudent management and robust regulation to ensure equitable access and efficient utilisation to meet the communication needs of all stakeholders. Regulation and management of this scarce resource is achieved through a regulatory framework that is driven by the development and implementation of national strategic direction, legislation, regulations and procedures. CRAN is responsible for facilitating and allocation and availability of spectrum so that it is an enabler for the socioeconomic development and access to communications services and ICT infrastructure. The Spectrum Assignment Strategy promotes competition through minimisation of constraints on spectrum use within a service and technology neutral license regime and allows for similar services to be offered on different technological platforms. CRAN will ensure the fair distribution of spectrum that in turn would provide services based on the requirements of the various category of service licences awarded. The Spectrum Regulatory Framework aims to provide stakeholders with equitable access to spectrum resources and ensure that a wide array of the latest technological services are made available to Namibian consumers. “The Authority developed a spectrum assignment strategy that charts the way for planning spectrum resources, determining spectrum fees and assigning spectrum to new and existing stakeholders”, concluded Mbandeka.

The Cgals are eagerly preparing for the 10th World Choir Games On Saturday 23 June and Sunday 24 June the coastal towns of Namibia will be treated to vibrant performances under the guidance of Wilna Liebenberg by the Cgals Chamber Choir of Namibia at two concerts given at the German Lutheran Church, Swakopmund. The choir has gone from strength to strength after their category win at the previous Games in Sochi, Russia. In 2017 they passed the UNISA advanced choir examination with 97% which once again places them on the 'honour roll' of UNISA. They also sang the 2017 ABRSM (Royal School of Music) advanced ensemble examination

and passed with the highest possible mark. These performances will also create a platform for local singers and pianists that take lessons with Vera Malherbe and Wilna Liebenberg, two music teachers whose students regularly receive accolades for their excellent results in their practical and theoretical examinations. The Cgals Choir is busy with the preparation of 12 pieces

which will be performed at the World Choir Games from 4 to 14 July in Pretoria, South Africa. To prepare for a competition on this level with difficult repertoire, every experienced music teacher will agree, can take up to 18 months of intense practice to master! The pieces include a composition by Wilna Liebenberg (Psalm 23) which has been specially composed for the competition, pieces

of the Renaissance genre (Duo Seraphim: Victoria), Late Romantic Period ( Ta n t u m E r g o : Faure) even a current day Afrikaans Art cycle (4 Elemente en Epiloog: Niel van der Watt) and for example a traditional choir work (We are the

daughters of our Land Namibia: composed by Wilna Liebenberg with words by a Cgals choir member Karen Miller). The choir consists of 26 members that work very hard to compete in International competitions and is one of only

two Namibian choirs ranked in the top 500 choirs in the world. Tickets to the Gala concert can be bought from any Cgals member, or from Charmaine at the office of Karen Miller Architect, 407121. The cost of tickets is

N$100 for Saturday and N$50 for the matinee on Sunday, intended for school groups and arranged seniors groups. Do not miss the event, as this promises to be one of the musical highlights of 2018.

“KARNEVAL” Is Back In Town – Worldwide…


In towns and villages of Namibia 'Karneval' was originally established by German speaking Namibians, the first one being the WIKA (Windhoek Karneval) established in 1952. However, it is celebrated with great passion and in various fashion by many communities worldwide! Where and how did carnival originate? Its origin dates from the middle ages and is based on religious traditions, influenced – as are many other religious events – by pagan customs. The word carnival stems from the Latin 'carne vale', meaning 'meat fare-well', since carnival originally was celebrated just before the start of the Christian fasting period leading to Easter. Its followers are thus afforded a festive season of over-joyed eating, drinking, dancing and making fun of all and sunder, before Ash Wednesday ushers in the somber fasting period. The wearing of masks and fancy dresses, coupled with general exuberance and utter jollity originates from pagan traditions intending to scare away evil spirits and, instead, attract good spirits and their graciousness. The largest and probably most enigmatic carnival is celebrated annually in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, initiated by former slaves from Afri-ca, who with masks and feathered costumes tried to appease and charm the spirits. These days thousands of artists from many of the large Samba dancing schools are competing against each other with dances, glamour and much bare skin in exuberant street processions. The European counterpart to Rio Carnival is the 'Fifth Annual Season' (as opposed to four climate seasons…) in Santa Cruz on Teneriffa. Up to 500,000 actors are entertaining the excited fancrowds during colourful street processions. The festival ends with the 'Sardine's Funeral', when the final procession accompanies a large artificial sardine to its fiery cremation – symbolising the end of winter. The probably third-largest carnival event is taking place in the Andalusian town of Cadiz with dancing and music, such as Paso Doble, Flamenco and African rythms. A religious climax is experienced with the Bolivian carnival in Oruro in the Andes mountains, where dancing with the devil 'Diablada' is centre stage – ghosts, dragons and bird- and snake-creatures are portraying in dance-like fashion the battle of good against evil. Everywhere in the world, just as in Namibia, carnival embodies an exceptionally exuberant, joyful cultural event, providing for a short period of unusual collective boisterousness and happiness – aiming to create joy for all, sorrow for none!

Christian Youth Group donates towards shack fire victims Eileen van der Schyff

…and this is only the beginning of bigger things

Kuisebmond: a Christian-faith non-profitable organisation (NGO), “FEAR NOT I AM YOUR GOD” recently made a donation towards victims of a fire that destroyed three shacks. The donation was made last Friday. The donation also highlights the increased risk this time of the year when many shack residents are forced by the cold to light fires or use candles, lanterns and gas equipment to prepare food and to keep a household going. Mr Jacob Gabriel, the chairperson of Fear Not I Am Your God, collected some basic necessities which they handed over to the fire victims who lost everything on 20 May in the fire. After receiving the donations, the vision of the Group was shared with the victims and guests who witnessed the handover. The Group believes

you are never alone, despite your life's challenges. They share the message through gospel singing and music and preaching the Bible which they believe is the Word of God. “No problem is ever bigger than God”, it was explained. “It was long journey for the Group. I have a heart for helping and I don't like seeing people living with difficulties. Be that phy-

sically, health-wise or emotionally”, Gabriel explained in an interview with namib times. The group's mission is to visit orphanages, prisons, hospitals, old age homes and schools. “The idea of starting a group like this was born when I was very young. However, I think it was just not the right time to come up with the Group, because I was not equipped”, Jacob fur-

ther explained how his vision went from idea to action. Jacob believes that God has been preparing him. He went on by proclaiming: “God blessed me on 17 July 2016, when I shared the long dream I had with my wife. And it became reality”. Adding, the group is yet to be launched

officially. The launch is scheduled for the foreseeable future. The group will continue to focus on activities such as singing and performances, preaching the Bible and hosting crusades. One key area of focus would be to encourage school going children to do well at school and complete

school. Education is the essential foundation to adult life, believes the Group. The Group will also visit hospitals, prisons and old age homes to encourage those who face hardship and abandonment in those segments of society and to help carry the message across that

the time has come to defeat Gender Based Violence in all spheres of Namibian society. And, Jacob revealed with much enthusiasm: we plan to record a CD. “The Group is blessed with talented singers and this all is only the beginning of bigger things”.

An der Atlantikküste,in der Namibwüste Unbekannte Schönheiten: Überlebenskünstler Flechten Namib Wüste (mw). „Lichen field“. Was für ein Name für dieses Naturwunder: Sie halten Temperaturen bis über 80°C aus und holen ihren Wasserbedarf fast ausschließlich aus dem Nebel. Sie wachsen auf Büschen, Felsen, ja selbst auf den Steinchen der gravel roads. Und sogar auf in der Wüste weg geworfenen Glasscherben sind schon Flechten gefunden worden. Flech -ten (engl.: lichen) bestehen aus zwei völlig unterschiedlichen Organismen, die sehr eng miteinander leben, nämlich in einer Symbiose. Es ist ein Pilz, ein sogenannter Myko-

biont, der in einer Partnerschaft mit einer Grünalge, einem sogenannten Cyanobakterium, lebt. Da sie zum Leben Wasser benötigen, aber in der Wüste kaum Wasser durch Regen vorhanden ist, saugen sie Wasser aus Nebel und Tau wie ein Schwamm auf. Die berühmte Flechte Teloschistes capensis kann sogar bei einer Luftfeuchtigkeit von nur 82% wachsen und gedeihen. In der Namib Wüste sind bisher etwa 120 Flechten Arten beschrieben worden, viele von ihnen sind selten, und eine große Anzahl ist hier sogar endemisch. Es gibt – je nach Aussehen Krustenflechten, Blattflechten und Strauchflechten. Ihre Farbpalette reicht von orangen über

roten hin zu grünlichen oder grauen Fruchtkörpern. Auch die Farbe schwarz ist reichlich vertreten. Flechten gehören zu den ältesten Lebewesen überhaupt, viele hundert Jahre Alter sind keine Seltenheit, und in Einzelfällen können sie sogar bis zu mehreren tausend Jahren alt werden. Weltweit gibt es ca. 25.000 Arten. Da sie die in der Luft/im Nebel enthaltenen Schadstoffe praktisch direkt aufnehmen, reagieren sie sehr schnell auf Umweltverschmutzungen. Sie gehören damit zu den sogenannten Zeigerorganismen, d.h. sie sind Lebewesen, durch deren Vorkommen auf bestimmte Umweltfaktoren zurück geschlossen werden kann. Hier in

unserer Namib Wüste kann man sich sogar an der Himmelsrichtung orientieren, in die Flechten auf den Steinen wachsen. Die Caloplaca elegantissima beispielsweise wächst auf der Nord-Ost Seite der Steine. Wer sich mehr mit unseren einheimischen Flechten befassen möchte, dem ist das Bestimmungsbuch „Lichens of the Namib Desert“ von Volkmar Wirth zu empfehlen, an dem u.a. auch die Swakopmunderin Elke Erb mitgewirkt hat. Es ist im Klaus Hess Verlag erschienen und in den hiesigen Buchhandlungen und im Museum Swakopmund erhältlich. Martin Weigand

Lappiesfontein An der Stelle, an der heute das Aquarium steht, gab es den ersten Zeltplatz in Swakopmund mit dem Namen “Lappiesfontein“. Die Stadtverwaltung hatte ihn zusammen mit dem Kurausschuss zur Saison errichtet. In der Nähe des Zeltplatzes wurden früher auch Märkte von Inländern abgehalten, so z.B. für Hühner und Bokkies oder auch für Felle und Leder, auf dem auch die frühere „Swakopmund Tannary“ ihren Bedarf für die Vellies deckte. Das Foto stammt aus der Zeit vor 1970 und wurde von Annelise Ahrens eingesandt. Martin Weigand

Caloplaca elegantissima (hier in Gesellschaft mit anderen Flechten) fällt durch die rosettenförmig angeordnete Struktur in leuchtender orange-roter Farbe auf. Sie ist endemisch in Süd-West Afrika.

Die Martin Luther Lok aus dem Jahr 1896 ist im gleichnamigen Museum und Vintage Farm Stall an der B2 vier km außerhalb Swakopmunds Richtung Usakos zu besichtigen. Martin Weigand

Martin Luther in neuem Glanz Swakopmund (mw) Von außen ist es nicht unbedingt sehr einladend, aber innen wird man angenehm überrascht: Das Martin Luther Museum fährt nun „zweigleisig“, in der Mitte steht die strahlende alte Martin Luther Lok, geputzt und poliert, und drum herum allerlei Vintage- und auch Trödelware zum Verkauf. Als vor einem Jahr der Evangelisch Lutherische Weltbund seine Vollversammlung anlässlich der 500-Jahr Feier der Reformation in Windhuk abhielt, wollten viele Besucher die Martin Luther Lok besichtigen. Da hatten Odette und Esté aus Outjo die Gelegenheit ergriffen und das Museum – das fast vier Jahre lang geschlossen war – wieder eröffnet und gleichzeitig auch als Shop genutzt. Der Raum ist sehr sauber und gepflegt, die Lok steht in der Mitte, drumherum sind die alten Fotos drapiert, die aus hygienischen Gründen

nicht direkt auf dem Boden stehen. Die Verkaufsartikel, wie z.B. alte Silberlöffel aus Rhodesien, selbst Eingemachtes oder auch Modeschmuck, sind im ganzen Raum verteilt, nehmen jedoch nicht die Sicht auf das Museumsstück. Und an den Wänden hängen alte, aber dekorative Kleidungsstücke aus der Zeit um 1800. Wir freuen uns,

dass dieses schöne Stück aus dem Winterschlaf erweckt wurde und, liebe Swakopmunder, macht Euch bitte selber ein Bild davon und kommt, das Museum besuchen. Der Eintritt ist frei, und wem's gefällt, der kann auch ein schönes selbstgemaltes Bild von Odette kaufen. Martin Weigand

Swakopmunder Hospiz schließt die Pforten

Es ist mir aufgefallen... ...dass in diesem unseren Lande, meiner Wahlheimat Namibia, die Kinder gegenüber den Erwachsenen mehr Respekt zeigen als in meinem Geburtsland Deutschland. Dies beobachte ich überall im täglichen Leben – sei es auf der Straße, sei es bei meinen Besuchen in den Schulen oder sonstwo. Es sind nicht nur Nuancen im Unterschied, sondern es ist sehr auffallend. Ich habe den Eindruck, dass hier in Namibia die Familien, sprich Eltern und Großeltern, auf der einen Seite, und die Schule auf der anderen Seite „an einem Strang ziehen“, und sei es unbewusst. Es herrscht in der Gesellschaft die Tradition vor, dass man den Älteren oder insgesamt Respektspersonen gegenüber, höflich auftreten soll, ohne unterwürfig zu sein. Diese Einstellung ist leider in Deutschland zum großen Teil abhanden gekommen. Schüler treten gegenüber dem Lehrpersonal oft unver-

schämt auf (entsprechende Meldungen in der Presse schrecken in letzter Zeit verstärkt auf), die Lehrer „kämpfen auf verlorenem Posten“, da sie seitens der Eltern oftmals keine Unterstützung erhalten. Im Gegenteil, man macht ihnen noch Vorwürfe, wenn sie Kinder deutlich auf falsches Verhalten hinweisen. Über die Gründe mag man unterschiedlicher Meinung sein: ist es einfach nur die Folge der völligen antiautoritären Erziehung, die nach Weltkrieg II begann, oder etwa das übertriebene „Selbstverwirklichungsstreben“, das soweit geht, dass bereits in Kitas oder Kindergärten den Kindern kein Wunsch verwehrt wird, um es etwas überspitzt zu formulieren. Wie oder was auch immer, die Folge ist, dass die Kinder im späteren Leben, spätestens aber, wenn der Eintritt in die Berufsausbildung oder das Arbeitsleben beginnt, massive Probleme haben, sich an-

zupassen. Ich selber habe diese Erfahrung bei meiner ehrenamtlichen Tätigkeit in einer verbands- ähnlichen Organisation in Deutschland gemacht (hier waren mehrere Hundert Betriebe organisiert), dass wir nämlich aus genau diesem Grund mit vielen Jugendlichen Schwierigkeiten hatten, nicht nur wegen schlechter schulischer Ausbildung (das ist ein anderes Thema!), sondern wegen fehlender Bereitschaft oder Unvermögen, sich an das Berufsleben bzw. an die allgemeinen gesellschaftlichen Normen anzupassen. Hoffentlich bleibt uns diese gesunde Einstellung in Namibia noch möglichst lange erhalten! Martin Weigand

Lateinische Lebensweisheiten – audiatur et altera pars: es soll auch der andere Teil bzw. die andere Seite angehört werden! Dies ist einer der Grundsätze der Rechtsprechung. Um nicht zu einem vorschnellen, also zu einem Vorurteil, und damit oft falschen Urteil zu kommen, sollte man - also jeder von Uns (!) - vor einer endgültigen Beurteilung einer Sachlage alle Aspekte der Situation betrachten und abwarten, bis auch die andere Seite, also in der Regel der mutmaßliche „Täter“, sich geäußert hat. In unserem Zeitalter der sozialen Netzwerke hat sich leider verstärkt die Unsitte verbreitet, dass oft nach dem Augenschein be- bzw. geurteilt wird. Eine Person gibt die Meinung vor und die meisten hängen sich dann daran – ohne den eigenen Kopf einzuschalten und ohne zu wissen, wie es wirklich war.

Nach 10 Jahren ehrenamtlicher Tätigkeit unter der Leitung von Annetha Botha (Gründerin) und Liesel Koepp musste der Swakopmunder Hospizverein Ende Mai 2018 schließen. Grund für die Vereinsauflösung

ist mangelndes Interesse an dieser Tätigkeit, ein Umstand, der vielerorts große Nachwuchssorgen hervorruft. Das noch vorhandene Guthaben aus Mitgliedsbeiträgen sowie Spenden in Höhe von insgesamt ca. 26.000NAD wurde

It was an enormous privilege to work with him and we will ensure that his legacy will live on in the work we are doing. Our thoughts are with the family and friends in this difficult time. May his soul rest in eternal peace. Members of the Namibian Uranium Association, the staff of the Namibian Uranium Institute and members of the Chamber of Mines of Namibia A public memorial service will be held on the 15th of June 2018 at 18h00 at the municipal Multi-Purpose Centre in Mondesa, Swakopmund.

Message of Condolences

Dr Wotan Swiegers It is with great sadness that we heard about the passing of Dr Wotan Swiegers, a true icon and leader in our industry and in his community. Affectionately known as Doc Wotan, Dr Swiegers has left his footprint not only in the work that he did, the lives that he saved, or the contribution to the uranium industry, but also to anyone who knew him as a colleague or friend.

We wish the family strength in this difficult time.

Sanlam Cancer Golf Day

Well, the wait was worth it, and the SANLAM CANCER DAY got the benefit of 45 hungry to play golfers. All players paid and extra seventy five dollars towards the cancer association, and the auction drew in another three thousand, so it was a good day for the CANSA Association. Andre Barnard handed out the prizes, and sadly we also had to say goodbye to him as he is relocating to Windhoek on promotion. The three divisions, each had a winner. The A division was won by Kevin Wentzel on 41 points. He is in the photo with Andre Barnard. B division was won by Piet van Niekerk with a very good 43 points and I think a new handicap. Frans Grobler won the C division with 36 points. Ladies A was won by Wilma van der Merwe on 31

points. Estelle Bothma won the B division. Two clubs were recorded by Gert Jnr, Willie Els, Andre Burger, and David Peake. Kevin recorded two but failed to write them up. On a sad note we were sorry to hear of the passing of an old club member, Elmarie Coetzee. She was a long serving member of the committee in those years. Our heartfelt condolences to Gerald and family Calendar for the next few weeks is as follows. 9/6 Dulux round two 16/6 PISCS medal 23/6 Supertronix 1/7 Namibia Ship Chandlers

Kudus gave a better performance as with the first game between the two teams in Windhoek. Handling errors at the side of Kudus cost them the game.

The Chairman of Namibia RCFAI & Kickboxing Academy, Philip Muller, said: “Today, I would like to pay tribute to all those who have worked so hard to bring the club's development about. I have no doubt that the opening of these new premises will hold even better times ahead for Martial Arts in the Region and country. With the ongoing development programs in place, it has proven successful, as seen in recent competitions”. Muller thanked the Honourable Deputy Minister of Sport, Ms Agnes Tjongarero, for her inspiration and what she does for sport in the country. He also thanked Master Joe Viljoen, World President of RCFAI, for his inspiration, friendship and his input to Kickboxing in Namibian, the Namibian Sport Commission and Namibian Kickboxing Federation for their support for the Academy. “I would like to thank the local community, parents, students, coaches and instructors who have supported the RCFAI & Kickboxing Academy over the past two years”, Philip Muller said. Mr. Muller congratulates all students of the Academy who achieved through the years and he wishes them all the best for the future. The Erongo Judo Academy (EJA), has for the past four months utilized the premises of the RCFAI & Kickboxing Academy for their Judo training classes. The EJA also moved to the new premises of the RCFAI & Kickboxing Academy. Sensei Henry Cookson, the instructor of the Erongo Judo Academy, said that since he started with the Judo training classes at the premises of RCFAI & Kickboxing Academy, all his students has improved for the better. The success of the students was visible in the Namibian National Youth Games where EJA won 15 Gold and one Silver medal with Courtney Mouton crowned as the best female Judo fighters. Six of the EJA Judo students have been selected to represent Namibia at the Region 5

Games in Botswana. Sensei Henry applauded all the Judo students and their parents for all the effort they put in the Academy and he is proud of all his students. He also thanked the manage-ment of the RCFAI & Kickboxing Academy for their input and for allowing EJA to use their premises. Sensei Henry mentioned that the development that has been done at both Academies is instrumental and done by Mr Philip Müller. Sensei Henry applauds Mr Müller for the offering his time and efforts to the students as he, without any financial assistance, drives students safely home late at night after their training. “At this stage Mr. Philip Müller the Chairperson of the RCFAI & Kickboxing Academy is the sole financial support for the development program of both Academies. Without his financial assistance none of this would have been possible. My plea goes to all corporate companies to support development programs and help the students reach their goals” Sensei Henry Cookson said. Apart from just practicing Kickboxing, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu and Boxing, the students can relax in playing Table Tennis, Basket Ball, Soccer game and other fun games at the venue.
