Crime: Erongo among the Floris Steenkamp

The Erongo Region, along with Khomas, Otjozondjupa and Oshana are the worst hit by crime in the past two months, according to the Deputy Minister of Safety and Security, Daniel Kashikola. The Deputy Minister on Wednesday addressed the annual Security Sector Parade in Windhoek, attended not only by members of the Namibian Police, but also other security segments which included neigh-bourhood watch formations. According to Kashikola a total of 49 000 criminal cases were reported between March and August countrywide (March to May 22 800 cases and June to August 26 400 cases). Kashikola quoted crime statistics of the past five years which show theft of cell phones increased by 29,5 %; murder by 9,5 %; robbery by 36,2 %, theft of motor vehicles by 34,4 % and stock theft rose by 21,4 %. Crimes which showed a downward trend over the past five years are attempted murder (3,4%); common assault (4,9 %) and rape (2,2%). “All Namibian Police Force regional commanders and their respective regional management cadres are under strict orders to ensure that crime is, at the very least, reduced in their regions”, Kashikola told the audience and also called for an improvement in the management of dockets in order to speed up investigations and facilitate less delays in prosecution. Kashikolo remarked these crime statistics and also the regions worst affected the past two months are cumbersome, given that these regions will be popular destinations during the upcoming festive season. In Erongo, in particular the coastal towns, thousands of holiday makers are expected to start to flow in from early December. The Deputy Minister called for increased interventions like intensive crime prevention operations, crime awareness campaigns and intelligence-driven operations to root out crime syndicates and networks. Also speaking at the Parade was the InspectorGeneral of the Namibian Police LieutenantGeneral Sebastian Ndeitunga who said youth unemployment are among the root causes of rising crime statistics.

Ship on fire at Syncrolift


German Parliament visits Namibia

Floris Steenkamp A fishing vessel caught fire at the Walvis Bay Syncrolift on Wednesday after welding and cutting work set the accommodation quarters of the vessel alight. Thanks to the initial steps taken by people who were aboard the vessel at the time the fire started, and subsequent quick response by the Walvis Bay fire brigade, the fire was promptly under control and extinguished. “People were conducting hot works on the vessel”, explained the fire chief of the Walvis Bay municipal traffic department, Dennis Basson yesterday. Hot works refer to welding and cutting work which are generating heat. According to Basson the hot works heated up the vessel's hull and conducted the heat to combustible inner-layers of the vessel, which in Continued on page 2

this case was wood panelling lining the accommodation quarters. “The wooden panelling started to burn. The people on board took the right steps to fight the fire when they realised there was a fire emergency. We also responded without delay when the emergency call came in. Four of our firefighters entered the section of the vessel that was burning self-containing breathing apparatuses�, explained Basson. He expressed his relief that no one was injured in the fire, and that the fire was extinguished before it spread to the rest of the vessel.

activities including a public march. The public march will also place a renewed emphasis on gender-based violence which has reached epidemic proportions in Namibia. Epidemic proportions in that Namibian men harbours an attitude that if he cannot have a woman, nobody else will have that woman. Murder is their solution to the problem and suicide is the coward way out afterwards to escape taking accountability for taking a life. However, there will also be renewed emphasis on women who too often withdraw domestic violence cases against the perpetrator and often even testifying in the defence of the perpetrator during bail application hearings. Public calls were made since Prinsloo's murder that no bail for the alleged perpetrator must become the norm. Calls are also made for Namibian men to change their attitudes and behaviour towards women, but also towards other vulnerable groups like the elderly and children. Prinsloo was also a founder of the Have-a-Heart Foundation which focuses on pet welfare. She was also a community activist and was residing at Swakopmund since December 2017.

The Tourism Committee of the German Federal Parliament, the Bundestag, visited Namibia from 28 October to 2 November. The nine Honorable Members of Parliament, representing all parties, first traveled to the Zambezi region where they were briefed about projects for sustainable management of natural resources which are supported through the German development cooperation. They include e.g. supporting national parks and park management, integrated wildlife management, community resource management and communitybased conservation support, biodiversity management and adaptation to climate change, as well as cross-border conservation and use of natural resources in the SADC region. In Windhoek, the delegation held discussions with the Minister for Environment and Tourism, H.E. Pohamba Shifeta, and in the Namibian Parliament, where they met with the Speaker, Hon. Prof Peter Katjavivi and the Chairman of the Committee for Natural Resource Management, Hon. Sophia Swart, as well as other Members of the Namibian

Parliament. The delegation also met with representatives from Namibia Wildlife Resorts, the Namibia Tourism Board, tourism industry, entrepreneurs and civil society representatives. During a visit to the Silverspoon Hospitality Academy, the delegation was briefed about training opportunities in the hospitality industry. The German Members of Parliament were thus able to gain a comprehensive picture of tourism development in Namibia and were impressed by the beauty of the country and the involvement of local communities in tourism programmes. Many of the delegates expressed their wish to return to Namibia privately and with their families, in order to further explore the country. Namibia is a popular holiday destination for German tourists; approximately 80 000 Germans visit Namibia every year.





Swakopmund pulls out all the stops Discarded bottles get to prepare for festive season

a second lease on life Sharlien Tjambari Lucas Sioka sells glasses made from recycled bottles in Swakopmund central business district, opposite Woerman Brock supermarket. Sioka explains he used to make and sell his products in Windhoek, but about a year ago he started receiving calls from clients at the coastal towns. He decided to move to Swakopmund. “The market here is good. I have a huge potential for clients in Swakopmund. The most important thing is: people don't buy my products because they love them, most of them say they will support me because I use recycled materials. This helps in keeping the town clean”. According to Sioka, the only challenge he faced on a daily basis is the fact that the municipal officials chase him away from spots he wants to conduct business from. This is difficult because he ended up losing clients who sometimes promise to come back the next day. “I have now obtained a document from the Ministry of Industrialization, Trade and SME Development in order to register my business. I hope to participate in upcoming expositions, Christmas markets and many more events coming up over the festive season”.

With the Christmas holiday season only weeks away, the Swakopmund municipality is pulling out all the plugs to get the town ready for the influx of holiday goers. But, gearing up for the season not only means Christmas decorations. The roads department of the holiday town is sprucing up the town's road markings, in order to make traffic lines more visible and in doing so enhance traffic safety.

Etosha Fishing wins award Etosha Fishing Corporation asserted its position as a leading producer of quality canned fish products at the 6th Annual National Quality Awards hosted by the Namibian Standards Institution (NSI) in October. The company once again received top honours by winning three of the five large enterprise categories, including Company of the Year, Exporter of the Year and Product of the Year. It managed the same feat in 2015 and 2017. The NSI Quality Awards programme was introduced in 2012 with the aim of honouring companies that contribute to quality advancement in all sectors of the Namibian economy by having measurements and quality systems, procedures and processes in place that are in line with local, regional and international practices. The programme also recognises companies who use quality ad-

vancement to support national eco-nomic development and growth. This achievement comes as Etosha Fishing is preparing to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the launch of its homegrown EFUTA Maasbanker canned product in December, which won in the Product of the Year category. The mainstay of the company's business remains the canning of pilchards for world-leading brands such as Lucky Star and Glenryck-SA. Etosha Fishing is one of the few manufacturers that imports raw product to be processed on local soil before being exported again, earning valuable foreign currency for Namibia. Against the backdrop of a dwindling local pelagic resource in recent years and the

subsequent moratorium placed on pilchard catches, Etosha Fishing has imported in excess of 50,000 metric tons of frozen pilchards for processing on local soil since 2010 in order to sustain business. “Etosha Fishing operates in a business environment where its largest customer is the market leader for canned fish in Southern Africa. The Lucky Star canned pilchard product sells at a premium price in the market due to its image of product quality. Lucky Star has clearly identified needs not only through adherence to regulatory requirements, but in product specifications that exceed the minimum requirements of the regulator,” says Etosha Fishing Managing Director Pieter Greeff. He adds

Etosha Fishing's cannery located in Walvis Bay is a world leader in processing and automation. No other cannery in Southern Africa has the advanced automated equipment used for processing fish and quality monitoring. Its range of canned horse mackerel and pilchard products can be consumed by people of any culture or religion the world over, making the company a true ambassador to the Namibian Manufacturing and Food Industry

that Etosha's cannery is a world leader in processing and automation. No other cannery in Southern Africa has the advanced automated equipment used for processing fish and quality monitoring. According to Quality Assurance Manager Linekela Kapundja, Etosha Fishing has established a quality management system based on the principle of ISO9001, a standard which organisations the world over use to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. The company also uses HACCP as a measure to control food safety risks, which is certified by the NSI through an inspection and audit program. All products are also inspected by the NSI and the South African National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications for compliance with canned food manufacturing regulations.

Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources recently visited the Etosha Fishing Corporation canning facility with the launch of its new EFUTA Maasbanker curry flavour product. Factory workers were keen to show off their skills in preparing product for canning at this world-class facility

“All these efforts has placed Etosha Fishing products among the best quality canned products, not just in Namibia, but in Africa and worldwide. Our products can be consumed by all people of any culture or religion and through these certifications our products act as ambassadors to the Namibian Manufacturing and Food Industry outside of Namibia,” says Kapundja. She adds that the company's internal quality management systems provide assurance that the customer can

consistently expect a product of high quality. In 2013 Etosha Fishing pioneered local value addition of horse mackerel, becoming the first company to success-fully can Namibia's national fish under its own EFUTA Maasbanker brand. It was the first Namibian canned product to receive the NSI's Standard Mark of Conformity product endorsement. The EFUTA products are also Halaal certified and carry the Team Namibia product mark. Initially

launched in three flavours, namely tomato sauce, chilli and salt water, the company this year added a curry flavour and a minced horse mackerel canned product. It also introduced its own canned EFUTA Pilchard product. Canned fish is a key source of protein on the subcontinent. Canned pilchards form the single largest component of this market. Etosha Fishing's products contains no preservatives, is high in Omega 3 fatty acids, protein and selenium.



Thugs arrested minutes after robbing a tourist Walvis Bay: Two men who overpowered and robbed a European tourist at a public toilet at the Walvis Bay lagoon yesterday were arrested minutes after the crime was committed. Their two co-accomplices are still on the run, but their identities are known and the police believe their arrest is imminent. A tourist couple wanted to make use of a public toilet near the lagoon yesterday. The husband entered the public toilet and four men followed him in where they overpowered and robbed him. They ran to a silver Toyota Yaris and sped off. People who saw what happened notified the Police. The Police broadcasted the information to the different law enforcement radio profiles and soon the traffic department picked it up. As traffic officer Divai was listening to the radio the Yaris passed him from the front in Union Street from the direction of 5th Road. He turned around and gave chase and caught up with the vehicle. Three people jumped out and ran away. Officer Divai arrested the driver. Soon traffic officers Fabianus Ihemba and Victor Shatipamba responded, followed by all the other traffic officers, members of the Police and also fire brigade officials who also responded to the radio message. The tourist couple already yesterday provided their statements to the Police. The two thugs will make a first appearance in the Walvis Bay magistrate's court today.

New book on 'Mad Mike' Hoare available For the first time, a biography on the famous Mike Hoare has been published. Titled 'Mad Mike' Hoare: The Legend, the book has attracted favourable comment from the likes of Kingsley Holgate, Eeben Barlow, and Al J Venter who commented, “I found The Legend to be written exceptionally well, and with remarkable clarity and insight.”

The 320-page book is by Mike's times, has 200 references, 89 photoson, Chris Hoare, a journalist, who had unique access to his father's life story. It is the result of 12 years of research and writing between

graphs, seven maps, a bibliography and an index. 'Mad Mike' Hoare became world famous in 1964-1965 when he led 300

'Wild Geese' across the Congo to crush a communist rebellion, rescue 2000 nuns and priests from barbarity, beat Che Guevara … and become a legend. Of Irish blood, Mike was schooled in England and, during World War 2, was the 'best bloody soldier in the British Army'. He demobbed as major, qualified in London as a chartered accountant and emigrated to South Africa. Going rogue, he started living dangerously to get more out of life, including trans-Africa motorbike trips, bluewater sailing, exploring remote areas, and

Chris & Mike Hoare with books leading safaris in the Kalahari Desert. Here Mike got to know the CIA agent who was to change his life … and Nelson Mandela's. Later Mike was technical advisor to the film The Wild Geese, which starred Richard Burton playing the Mike Hoare character. In 1981 Mike led 50 'Frothblowers' in a bid to depose the socialist government of the Seychelles. Things went wrong and soon Mike was to spend three years in jail for hijacking a Boeing 707. Says Chris, “My father, who is 99-and-a-half now and lives in Durban, was essentially a gentleman adventurer, probably the last of that breed. I like to think he was an officer and a gentleman with a bit of pirate thrown in.” The book was published by Partners in Publishing in Durban, and is available in bookshops in Namibia at a recommended retail price of NAD 395,00. The ISBN number is 9780620798617. Chris Hoare is Mike's eldest son. He went to school at Michaelhouse, has a bachelor's degree from the University of Natal, and has spent most of his working life in journalism of different kinds.

Worte der Woche

Atama kakushite, shiri kakusazu. (Auch wenn man den Kopf in den Sand steckt, bleibt der Hintern zu sehn.) Japanisches Sprichwort Herkunft: Die Redensart “den Kopf in den Sand stecken” stammt vielleicht aus der Kolonialzeit, als die Europäer in Afrika zum ersten Mal Strauße beobachteten. Strauße senken bei Gefahr ihre Köpfe sehr nah über den Boden. Für die Europäer sah es so aus, als würden sie den Kopf in den Sand stecken nach dem Motto: „Ich sehe die Gefahr nicht, also ist sie auch nicht da“. Dabei hat der Afrikanische Strauß dies gar nicht nötig, denn er erreicht beim Laufen Geschwindigkeiten von bis zu 70 km/h, was ausreicht, um den meisten Jägern zu entkommen. In anderen Situationen, zum Beispiel bei der Verteidigung des Geleges gegen Nesträuber, können seine mächtigen, mit Krallen bewährten Zehen erhebliche und sogar tödliche Verletzungen verursachen. Besonders brütende Strauße legen sich flach auf den Boden, um im Gras aus größerer Entfernung nicht mehr sichtbar zu sein. Vermutlich liegt hier der Ursprung der Redensart vom in den Sand gesteckten Kopf.

Das abwechslungsreiche Programm erstreckt sich von Bachs Violinkonzert (Solist: Oliver Kittel) über Mozart, The Lion KingFilmmusik, einem James-Bond-Medley und der beliebten African Symphony von Van McCoy. Die “Großen” werden aber auch den “Kleinen”, den ganz jungen Streichern der Violinschule von Christa Lambrechts, die Möglichkeit bieten, mit ihnen gemeinsam zwei kleine Orchesterwerke aufzuführen. Aufgelockert wird das Programm von weiteren jungen Talenten: Schülern der Klavierdozentin Vera Malherbe, und Saxophonschüler von Christiane Ast, Ian Hooks, der mit seiner Pianistin die Suite Hellenique von Piedro Itturalde zu Gehör bringen wird, sowie Oliver Kittel mit einem fetzigen Tango. Ein I-Tüpfelchen gibt dann noch das Trio Feminale mit einer konzertanten und grotesken Bearbeitung des Türkischen Marsches von Mozart zum Besten. Als Moderaterin wird Christiane Ast durch das Programm führen. Die Show am 24. November im Haus der Jugend startet um 18.30 für 19.00 Uhr und der Eintritt beträgt N$100. Karten sind im Vorverkauf bei NamibI erhältlich. Es werden Getränke und Snacks, ebenso eine begrenzte Anzahl von Tischen angeboten, sicherlich für Frühbucher interessant zu wissen.

Den Bericht von Nadine Kohlstädt und Kirsten Kraft dürfen Sie in drei Episoden auf diesen Seiten lesen: Folge 2 Das Museum wächst heran, wird mit “Leben” gefüllt und die immer größer werdende Verwaltung zwingt den Swakopmunder Zweig, sich von der Muttergesellschaft abzunabeln. Das Kulturzentrum braucht einfach einen eigenen Vorstand und Mitglieder. Am 29. Oktober 1968 (vor exakt 50 Jahren) gründen die Swakopmunder ihre eigene private, gemeinnützige Vereinigung, die “Gesellschaft für Wissenschaftliche Entwicklung”, die aber interessehalber unterstützend mit der NWG verbunden bleibt. 2006 folgt eine Umbenennung: Die Bezeichnung ändert sich in “Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft Swakopmund (WGS)”, unter welchem Namen die Gesellschaft seitdem besteht. Knapp 400 Mitglieder, hauptsächlich Namibier (77%), aus der Bundesrepublik Deutschland (18%), Südafrika (4%) und anderen Ländern gehören inzwischen der WGS an - Tendenz steigend. Das Swakopmunder Museum, Mitglied der “Museums Association of Namibia (MAN)” ist übrigens das größte privatgeführte Museum Namibias. Über 29 000 Besucher hat es pro Jahr zu verzeichnen, was viele Schulgruppen einschliesst. Die überwiegend positive Rückmeldung im Gästebuch, auf Facebook und TripAdvisor bringt dem Museum eine besondere Auszeichnung ein, nämlich das „Certificate of Excellence“. Fast alle Ausstellungsstücke sind nicht gezielt erworben, sondern gespendet worden. Somit erhebt das Museum keinen Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit bei der Darstellung der namibischen Geschichte. Dennoch bemüht sich die Gesellschaft weiterhin, alle Aspekte des namibischen Lebens, der Geschichte und der hie-

sigen Natur zu decken. Dank diverser lokaler und internationaler Gönner können über die Jahre einige Änderungen und Ergänzungen durchgeführt werden. Täglich von 10h00 bis 17h00 lockt das Haus mit seinen Exponaten zu einem sehenswerten Eintauchen in Namibias Vergangenheit. Eine große Auswahl an Themen kann hier unter die Lupe genommen werden. Angefangen bei den Tiermo-

stellung (People of Namibia) oder zur interaktiven Teufelskrallenausstellung. Es gibt unzählige Modellautos, Fossilien, die Schutztruppenmemorabilia und eine einmalige Mineraliensammlung zu bestaunen. Zu den beliebtesten Bereichen gehören zweifelsohne die historischen Räume einer alten Farmküche, die Apotheke und die Zahnarztpraxis von Dr. Weber. Der kürzlich renovierte Vortragsraum

cken gibt. Sowohl lokale als auch internationale Wissenschaftler berichten hier von ihren Studien in Englisch, aber auch in Deutsch. Vormittags flimmern im Vortragsraum Filme über die Leinwand. Auf Nachfrage werden inzwischen sogar Führungen durch die Räumlichkeiten angeboten. Für diejenigen, die sich selbst eine Route - je nach Zeit und Interesse - zusammenstellen möchte, gibt es

Was ist denn nun eigentlich ein Horizont? Liebe Küstenleser! In der letzten Glosse erwähnte ich die während meines Deutschland-Aufenthalts sehnsüchtige Suche nach dem Horizont. Da bekam ich aber etwas von der langjährigen DHPS-Lehrerin, meiner strengsten Kritikerin und Frau Mama zu hören, wobei der rechte erhobene Zeigefinger mitschwang: “ Wi e s o ? A u c h i n Deutschland gibt es doch den Horizont.” Und nun rumort die Frage zur Bedeutung dieses gerne benutzten Begriffes in meinem kleinen Kopf herum. Wikipedia definiert den Horizont als Linie, die den Himmel von der Erde abgrenzt. Genau, Wikipedia! Wenn ich zur Dämmerung im Erongo Plateau Camp auf dem Felsen sitzend in die weite Ferne schaue, wo das Buschwerk und die Berge auf das Firmament treffen, in dem die ersten Sterne funkeln, dann ist das der Horizont, den ich meine. Allerdings sollte Wikipedia statt von einer Linie lieber von Konturen sprechen. Zumindest in der Mathematik ist eine Linie gerade - und das ist der Horizont nie. Konturen hingegen schließen sämtliche Krümmungen eines Umrisses ein, weshalb man in der Kunst und Fotografie auch von Silhouetten spricht. Andererseits stammt der Be-

sich auf der Erde unter freiem Himmel befindet, sieht den Horizont als Berandungslinie von Erde und Himmel. Diese Peripherielinie hat aber eine Kreisform, wenn der Beobachter sich um 360 Grad um seinen Beobachtungsort dreht. Wie dem auch sei, den schlauen Definitonen nach ist auch die Skyline von New York

vorausgesetzt sichtbar, weil es sich vor dem Horizont befindet. Nun entfernt sich das Schiff allerdings auf seiner Reise übers Meer von Ihnen als Beobachter und wird immer kleiner. Das Schiff nähert sich der Horizontlinie. Schließlich verschwindet zuerst der untere Teil des Schiffs, weil die Erdoberfläche

Dem Lexikon der Astronomie zufolge hast du also Recht, Mama. Auch ein Wolkenkratzermeer vor der Nase hat einen Horizont, dem weisen Buch

Free Rabies Vaccination for Dogs and Cats 12 - 16 November The Ministry of Agriculture Water and Forestry in conjunction with the Walvis Bay Municipality Health Division will embark upon a vaccination campaign against rabies which will target dogs and cats from the age of three months and upwards. Rabies is a viral infection of the nervous system common in mammals. It is usually transmitted to humans by bite wounds through animal bites. Dog bites are the source of 99% of human Rabies deaths. Rabies infection is nearly always fatal unless prompt treat ment is adminis tered before symp toms begin. The rabies virus travels through the

nervous system. Progressive fatal inflammation of the brain and spinal cord develops. Worldwide, more than 55 000 people die of rabies every year. The disease progresses to paralysis, spasms of the throat muscles, convulsions and delirium. Without preventive treatment, it is fatal. Rabies is a vaccine preventable disease and the most costeffective strategy for preventing rabies in

people is by eliminating rabies in dogs through vaccinations. Preventing human rabies through control of domestic dog rabies is a realistic goal for large parts of Africa, and is justified financially by the future savings of discontinuing pest exposure prophylaxis for people. The programme will kick off on 12 November at the Civic Centre behind the Walvis Bay Town Hall, 13 November at

Narraville Municipality Building, 14 November at Kuisebmond Soccer Stadium & 15-16 at Tutaleni Police Station from 08:30 until 16:00. Residents and pet owners are encouraged to support the campaign by making sure that their pets are vaccinated. It must also be noted that dogs must be leashed and cats must be in carriers or secured in boxes with proper air holes. Anyone who posses-

ses Veterinary cards can bring them along although it's not a requirement.

For further information contact the Municipal Health Division at 081 124 1009

het gekrimp. Mathias Junius het ons reeds op 25 September 2018 verlaat en Linda het nou gevolg. Vir 26 jaar het sy met die mooiste blommeskeppings honderde mense gelukkig gemaak. Sy was vriendelik en behulpsaam teenoor elkeen, so ook teenoor ons, haar kollegas, ‘n ware vriendin. Nou, na haar aftrede het sy uitgesien om tyd met haar familie te spandeer, maar dit was nie HAAR besluit nie. Ons sal altyd met liefde en goeie herinneringe aan haar dink.

The President of the Namibian Golf Federation Brenda Lens said "At the same time we will abandon the NGF Handicap System manual which was last updated in April 2016. Instead we will adopt the Handicap System issued by Golf RSA and can be downloaded from their website handicaps-pdf/" Lens mentioned that clubs are urged to alert their members to the new requirements regarding ascertaining their Course Handicap

In the end, Cohen managed to win the set 11-9. Both teams came back determined to win the second set, but CFC 1 kept the upper hand and won it as well. In the third and final set, CFC 1 changed their tactics and moved into a defensive mode which left SKW 1's play in the doldrums. CFC 1 later shifted into an attacking offence which was simply

too much for SKW 1 to withstand. This resulted in CFC 1's dominance of the season which saw them scoop two of the league's top awards: The Bank Windhoek Fistball Lea-gue and the National Cup champion trophies. SKW 2 beat DTS and SFC to claim the Category B title. SFC finished second and DTS secured the third spot. CFC 1's Helmo Minz was the Player of The Day.

The Namibian National Rugby Sevens Team is in Kenya to participate in the 22nd edition of the annual 2018 Safari Sevens rugby tournament from 9 to 11 November. The participation of the team was made possible by the Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) as they sponsored the sevens team with an undisclosed sponsorship. Namibia Rugby Union (NRU) president Corrie Mensah thanked the sponsor and said their decision to cover the whole trip shows the brewer is on the side of the athletes. Namibia Rugby Union (NRU) president Corrie Mensah told the team they have an obligation to

represent Namibia well and make the nation proud and that the Union trust that as a team they will bring back some pride and that the Union is looking forward to a great future for sevens rugby. NBL managing director Wessie van der Westhuizen said "NBL always strives to support Namibian sport and add value to people's lives. Wessie mentioned that there are many differences in rugby, due to a strategy implemented that needs to be followed, but those differences can be fixed and when things don't go the way they should, the athletes are suffering. The captain of the side, Aurelio Plato, said they will perform to the best of their ability. "In the previous tournament we didn't do well, but this time around it's different," Plato said. Twelve teams are expected to compete in the tournament: Namibia, Deejays, Shujaa and Morans (three teams from Kenya), Spain, Portugal, the Apache Sevens and the Red Wailers (British teams), the Samurai 7s from Japan, the Cobras from South Africa and teams from Uganda and Burkina Faso. Namibia's rugby sevens squad is: Aurelio Plato (captain), Daniel Bock (vice-captain), Lean Stoop, Paulus Hangula, Guiliano Lawrence, Dirk de Meyer, Nandivatu Karuuome, Tuna Amutenya, Carlton Stevens, Peter Diergaardt, Romanzo Cento and Nazume Swartz with Leslie Bougaard (coach), Ryno Visagie (team manager) and Wayne Damons (physiotherapist) as the management team.
