Arandis solar plant faces hurdles and prospects Fire Jade McClune

Continued from page 1

A number of critical questions regarding the proposed hybrid power plant at Arandis have been raised, but there is some optimism that the turn to solar power could herald a new beginning for a country in urgent need of energy to power its emerging industries and growing population. Information about the actual cost of the units of power sold to NamPower is not being made public. “This is confidential, as Arandis Power is currently in negotiations with NamPower,” the project developers said at a focus group meeting in April. Arandis Power plans to build the first hybrid thermal-photovoltaic plant in the country with a maximum output of 120 MW, but the lifespan of the project depends on the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) and durability of the solar panels (estimated at 20 years), the company said. “Arandis Power is in negotiations with NamPower to secure a PPA for a period of 20 years commencing in 2016,” they said. In response to a question by one Arandis municipal official about whether “provision will be made for the use of extra power for the town of Arandis?” the

developers said their PPA with NamPower does not allow Arandis Power to sell any power to third parties. Asked by mining representatives whether Arandis Power will be able to take waste oils from Rössing, the company said: “No, not if the waste oil recycling plant is replaced by the PV plant as a fuel saving mechanism. It is not financially feasible to do both plants.” Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) will instead be imported via Walvis Bay, due to the need for the low sulphur and low ash content, they said. Around 200 000 tons will be used per annum for base-load operations and 100 000 tonnes at mid-merit and. Transport The HFO will be transported to the site via road. The impact associated with road transport of the HFO was assessed as part of the 2012 EIA process. The

Rössing Continues from page 2 According to a statement released on Monday the mine’s proposed new operating model forms the basis for a new way of work and consists of a number of elements. ‘Wave One’ of the new operating plan will include a five-day operating cycle and a three-panel shift pattern, as well as revised mining and milling targets, annual leave plans to reduce impact of public holidays on production and a number of other measures to improve efficiency and reduce costs. ‘Wave Two’ will aim at further improving efficiency by considering outsourcing and in sourcing opportunities, the mine said. Rössing plans to implement the new operating plan as from 1 August and will continue until the end of 2017, Duvenhage said. Rössing’s management has communicated the imminent changes to its employees and their bargaining representatives, the Mineworkers Union of Namibia, it was noted. The principal reason for these drastic cost-cutting measures is the continuous decline of the uranium spot price, which

fell to US$28/lb, last month. To produce a profit, it was argued the spot price would have to reach around US$45/lb. “The effect of the lower spot market price on our business means that for every US$5/lb drop, the company would earn N$300 million less for the year”, Rössing said in its statement. Duvenhage noted that the actual number of employees to be retrenched will be fewer than 200, as the mine is currently advertising around 65 new vacancies. Some employees are also due to retire within the timeframe and their posts may be frozen. He further announced that the mine’s processing plant is on full shut-down for the month of June and only maintenance work is currently being conducted. However, as from 1 July production will be in full swing again. The mine is also planning to scale down production. Only around 2 000 tonnes of uranium oxide are targeted for 2014, a drop of 50% in comparison to the previous yearly target of approximately 4 000 tonnes.

option of transporting the HFO by rail was assessed, but involved the purchasing of wagons, locomotives and the construction of rail siding and fuel offloading infrastructure, which will require a significant capital investment. The solar panels will be shipped to the Port of Walvis Bay from where they will be transported via road to the Arandis Power site. Some of the equipment has to be imported, such as inverters and solar panels, but the solar contractor will try to use whatever local materials are suitable and available. The planned access road to the plant has been approved as part of the 2012 EIA. The proposed access to Arandis Power is an existing T-junction on the D1911 situated towards the west of the road-over-rail bridge on the road to Rössing and was approved by the Roads Authority. Water Use The approved waste oil recycling plant would require approximately 2 000m³ of potable water on an annual basis for maintenance and the cooling circuit. The power generation plant will require 12 600m³ per annum. The total approved water supply for the approved thermal/waste oil plant alternative was set at 14 600m³ per year. The water will be transported to the site via a feed line off the existing local municipal pipeline. The water supply for the project has been approved by the Arandis Town Council and will come from the local municipal supply line. The solar plant would require around 1 100m³ water per annum for cleaning of the panels. The total water requirement for the hybrid thermal/PV power plant alternative would thus be 13 700m³ /annum. “These are insignificant volumes of water when compared to the volumes of water used

by mines in the region,” the developers argued. Air quality and noise Asked whether the HFO power plant will affect the residents with regards to the emission levels, the developers said only that “the air quality impacts associated with the thermal power plant were assessed as part of the previous EIA in 2012. Relevant design requirements and management and mitigation measures were developed as a result of the 2012 EIA process to ensure the relevant air quality standards are being met. Housing and socio-economic issues ”There s a commitment in the EMP for the recruitment of nationals, in particular local people. There is a commitment in the EMP to promote small and medium enterprises (SME) development wherever possible. Arandis Power has a responsibility to aid with social issues and would like inputs from the residents and the Town Council regarding what they need help with,” It was said. The construction accommodation approved in the 2012 EIA is still applicable and housing will not be provided for workers onsite. The only crew to be housed on site will be security personnel (maximum of two persons per plant). It is expected that workers will reside in nearby towns and settlements including Arandis, Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. However, the aim would be to use lo-

cals as far as possible, the company said. The construction contractors will be responsible to make arrangements for the establishment of a construction camp with the Arandis Town boundaries. The position of the contractor’s construction camp will be submitted for approval to the Arandis Town Council. Jobs “We want to see local Arandis residents considered for permanent employment,” the CEO of Arandis Municipality Ms Florida Husselmann told a focus group meeting on 9 April, but there are no assurances at this stage, as the employment will depend on external factors, but the company aims to use locals as far as possible, they said. The number of jobs for thermal plant will peak at around 400 and for the PV plant at 500. The construction period for the thermal plant is 21 months, including the NamPower interconnection infrastructure. The construction period for the PV will be one year. It will be up to the EPC contractor to decide on the extent of the construction camp (if at all required). Construction Construction relating to the HFO Thermal power plant can commence already, as this component of the project has already been approved. However, the solar (PV) plant cannot commence until the EIA has been completed and the EIA amendment approved by MET. The approved

thermal power plant will be constructed within the area allocated for noxious industry to the east of Arandis. The PV (solar) plant will be located north of the approved thermal power plant. The construction period for the hybrid PV/ thermal plant is 21 months, including the interconnection infrastructure. Technical detail The solar power will be dispatched first as it is more cost-effective (zero fuel cost). The thermal power plant will therefore balance out the shortcoming of the PV solar plant. The site layout is specifically designed to ensure maximum output from the solar panels with 11 m between the rows of panels. The area also allows for internal roads and other site facilities. Each panel will have a tracking system that will follow the sun, hence the modules move from east to west during the day. The panels will be installed with either ramming poles or earth screws depending on the soil conditions across the site. The inverters and transformers will be constructed on concrete bases. Bernd Seefeldt wrote on 20 April 2014 to say “It is a big step forward to build a solar PV plant next to an urban area (short transmission), where NamPower wanted to build a dirty coal power plant two years ago. Congratulations! You are planning the first solar power plant in the land of the sun.” Data sourced from SLR Scoping Report

Missing teens found Madelaine Laubscher

After running away from been found. Both are home and safe. The two teenagers involved in a romantic relationship, allegedly planned in advance to run away from home. On 7 April they were reported missing and a private investigator, Mr Andre Putter and the Pink Ladies in South Africa were alerted immediately. According to Putter it is suspected that they could have been hiding in Namibia, after Awian allegedly told a man who re-sprayed his motorbike that he wanted to travel

home, Awian Van Schalkwyk (17) and Kim Swarts (15) from South Africa have to Namibia shortly before they disappeared. However, according to Maroela Media and Awian`s mother, Putter confirmed that they were found in Kelvin, Johannesburg, on Monday in an apartment and rumours that they were seen in Namibia were incorrect. A friend of Kim and Awian reportedly shared information with Putter and he found them in the apartment they have been living at in Johannesburg. According to Putter they

have been at the apartment ever since they ran away. The teens apparently survived on cash that they took with them ever since they ran away from home. Kim and Awian`s parents have apparently requested that the two teenagers not be allowed to see each other for the time being. “The parents will have to handle the situation on their own terms. It is at the moment still not clear why they decided to run away or which one of the teenagers initiated the idea,” Putter said.

Mr Putter thanked everyone who helped with the search for the two teenagers. “We are just extremely happy and also very relieved to have them both back home safe and sound,” Awian`s mother told the newspaper last week. Although it could not be established why they ran away from home, a relative of Kim who spoke to the newspaper on a previous occasion, said it could have been due to pure teen-rebellion.

to come. Although some of the residents tried to extinguish the fire, their efforts were ineffective because of the intensity of the blaze which spread rapidly, fanned by the windy conditions that prevailed over the weekend. Some residents complained about thieves who take advantage of the confusion to steal items that would have been rescued from the shacks. The Walvis Bay fire brigade will hand out 70 food hampers to the affected families. A sympathetic resident also donated three bags of clothes to the visctims.

NAMSOV workers strike Piquet Jacobs

Namsov employees staged a peaceful demonstration on Monday morning demanding better work conditions. The demonstration started at 10:00 at the town centre, building up to the Namsov building. The workers said they are unhappy about the unfair dismissals that have increased in the last 3 years and the exploitation of Namibian seamen. One of the posters read, “Sick and tired of being sick and tired”, and took to the streets to air grievances to improve their conditions. They are also demanding over-time and night allowances to be implemented with immediate effect, for Namsov to stop importing Russian general workers for jobs that can be done by Namibians and this to be consequent to all seafarers, incentive bonus and housing subsidies to all workers and the removal of Patrick Bathlomeus. The workers also complain about unfair labour practice and disrespecting and undermining treatment toward Namibian seafarers. The strikers gave Namsov management 24 hours to respond to the demands, before any vessels return to sea. If the company fails to do so, serious action will be taken by the workers.

Kidnappers of 9-year old plead guilty Jade McClune

The case which stunned the coastal community three years ago drew to a conclusion when Veyonne Beukes pleaded guilty to charges of kidnapping and extortion in the Swakopmund Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Veyonne Beukes

Dylan Stramis

Her cousin, Dylan Stramis (21) also admitted that he acted as an accomplice in the kidnapping of a 9-year old child, whom they picked up near the Wurstbude Café along Strand Street in the summer of 2011. Both admitted that they had knowingly committed a crime by depriving the parents of their child in an attempt to extort money out of the parents. “I have no defence whatso-

ever,” the 25-year old Beukes told the court. She said she was driving along aimlessly that day when by chance she came across the child. They had asked the girl (identified here only as Pauline) for directions to a popular coffee shop and said they had spent time with the child on the beach. After some “chit-chat” the girl had asked to see her mother. Beukes said she

had at some stage made a joke about keeping the child for ransom. She had only entertained the idea at first, but through the course of that day she “started getting carried away with the idea”. A plan to extort money from the parents grabbed hold of her and from there “matters spiralled out of control until the point of my arrest.” In a statement read on her behalf by her legal aid represen-

tative Mr Dube, she said it was not her original intention to kidnap the child. Beukes looked thoroughly remorseful in the dock and said 'Yes', in a very soft voice when asked whether she signed the confession out of her free will. The 25-year old, who found herself pregnant behind bars three years ago, pleaded for mercy from the court on Thursday: “I sincerely and greatly regret what I did.” She also apologised to the parents and to the child and promised never again to repeat such “dishonourable conduct”. With his hair slicked back

in a ponytail, the young Stramis, who spent his 18th birthday in the police holding cells in Walvis Bay, looked hopeful that honesty might lighten the inevitable sentence that awaits him. Ms Llana Fouche read out a statement on behalf of Stramis, in which he admits to acting as an accomplice. “I admit to holding the child in the vehicle,” he said. He had helped convince the child to cooperate, but “I did not know of her (Beukes') intention when we took the child to the coffee shop.” He regrets his actions, he said. During their bail application on 16 January 2012 both claimed to be innocent

and blamed the other. Stramis said at the time he was not aware she had sent SMS messages from his phone to the parents, warning them not to contact the police. On Thursday they both admitted that on 29 December 2011 they had improper motives when they unlawfully detained the 9-year old Paulina and held her captive in order to extort N$30 000 from the parents. The felons also acknowledged that their threats caused fear in the minds of the child's parents and that they were fully aware of the legal implications of their actions.

Brutal murder in Mondesa Jade McClune and Marshallino Beukes

The police are in hot pursuit of a suspect in a brutal murder, which took place on Saturday afternoon in Mondesa, Swakopmund. It is alleged that an argument over beer led to the death of 30-year old Steven Stephanus Eigab, behind the Mondesa police station in Swakopmund. Other allegations indicate that drugs could also have been the motive for this act of violence. Eigab celebrated his th 30 birthday only three days prior to the incident. The deceased died shortly before 18:00 on Saturday evening, after he was stabbed once in the neck with a knife, police spokesperson, inspector Erastus Iikuyu, confirmed. A quarrel at House 403 in Festus Gonteb Street, supposedly triggered the attack. By the time Eagle Christian Ambulance Services arrived on the scene at around 18:00, the victim had already succumbed to the wound. One eyewitness said he also saw the man get hit on the head with a rock, but the

supposed head injury could not be confirmed by official sources. The victim apparently stumbled out into the street after he was stabbed; he walked a few paces and then fell down in the open area between Vrede Rede School and the Mondesa police station, where he bled to death. Emergency workers said it appears his jugular vein was cut and that he may have suffered internal bleeding. When the namib times arrived at the scene at around 18:15 the victim was surrounded by onlookers, where he fell, less than 40 metres from House 403 where the incident apparently took place. Inspector Erastus Iikuyu confirmed that the suspect is known to the police and an intense manhunt is ongoing. By yesterday afternoon he was still at large.

Sara is a rape victim survivor, and after four years finally has enough power within her to share her story in the hope that it will help other rape victims and possibly inspire them to forget the bitter experience and move on with life with a positive attitude. Sara was raped in 2010 and at the time she was unemployed and a single mother of three boys. After going through this ordeal, she never thought that being a rape victim would take such a big toll on her life. After the incident, she went to the police station to make a case where she was told that it was too late and that she should come back the next morning. Following the filing of the case, she went to the hospital where they did the rape kit, and after that she was advised to simply go home. Sadly, her court case has been pending since 2010 and will be heard again on 21July this year. Having the case postponed Sara Iyambo for so long makes it emotionally traumatic the rape victim and makes it difficult for rape victim to forget the adeal. Rape is a very sensitive topic yet Sara shared her experience unashamed and said the crime is still fresh in her mind till today. She thought that she would be able to handle it but her life has fallen apart after what happened. Sara added, “As a victim of rape one feels like it is the end of the world and that your life is over. You think to yourself, why me, and next comes the question, what is the use of even living.” She was a normal hardworking responsible mother with no feeling of hatred. Her life was full of hope and she had dreams she wanted to accomplish. After the rape, she started living a life full of hatred. She was filled up with hatred towards men, which included her father, her sons, her brother and her life in general. She wanted to take revenge on men. Sara stared drinking and smoking. She continued, “Since that time I have never felt love in me again, only hatred. I wanted to commit suicide, and tried everything but by God's grace I did not succeed.” Not being able to talk to anyone, not even her family, about what she went through caused Sara to keep everything to herself and work through it on her own. Sara was lucky enough to start working at the Ministry of Justice in 2012 and she used the medical aid benefit to go to a mental institute in Windhoek. At first she didn't want to tell people about being raped, she felt as if it was her fault and naturally felt ashamed to speak about it. After a while she started speaking to the people there and realised that the rape should not hold her back to get on with life.

Sara shared, “I was lucky to be able to go to this institute, but what about those rape victims who are unemployed like I was at that time. They have nowhere to go. I feel that we should provide a place where victims of rape or abuse can come to and be taken care of and be provided with a safe environment and people they feel they can trust to share their story. Talking about it is the best way to start accepting what you went through and move on from it.” Sara added that the only other person that played a great role in getting her back on track was the father of her first born when he came back into her life and gave her courage to stop drinking, smoking and discard the vengeful spirit. After that the next great step she took was going to Okongwari near Outjo this year. Okongwari is a therapeutic rehabilitation centre which her psychiatrist referred her to. Here she finally opened her heart and let it all out. The first time she spoke about her rape she could only cry and as she told her story to the reporter, she remarked that it was the first time she was doing so without shedding tears. Sara wants to share her story not for herself, but for the victims out there who think their lives are over and ruined. “I'm here to encourage them that you can get past this thing in your life; you can move on and still make something of your life. One way to get through it is to speak about your rape, be strong and perhaps even talk to someone who has been through the same experience.” It took Sara four years to be able to talk about her rape as it was something extremely torturous to go through and work through. It would have helped however if there was a support system to which one can go to. On the positive side Sara is now a mother of four, three boys and one little girl. Sara shared, “As parents of victims of rape, I want to encourage the parents to support their children. Know that when your child is quiet it doesn't mean that they are okay, talk to them and ask them if they are truly fine, how they are doing, and always encourage them to talk to you about everything and anything. I believe that it is important to be like a friend to your children.” Sara encourages all rape victims to come and talk to her if they need to talk to someone who has been in their situation. Sara shared that rape is real and it happens everywhere. “Rape doesn't always happen in the street, it happens at home also. So often women are raped by their husbands and nothing is done about it. She stressed that rape is rape imparted to the people.

Rundu teenager Erongo Blue Cross visits Walvis Bay Red bursary winner Piquet Jacobs

Blue Cross Namibia (BCNa) is currently visiting the coast, and paid a visit to Kuisebmond Secondary School yesterday afternoon, to discuss smoking, cigarettes and hubbly bubbly.

Dorcas Mhungu Erongo Red on Friday awarded a bursary to 18 year old Joseph Minginga who will study Electrical Engineering at the Polytechnic of Namibia. Congratulating Joseph, Chief Executive Officer Robert Kahimise said “We believe that education is the backbone of any economy and strive to support the Namibian Nation. It is our endeavour to care for our investments so that you can also give your best in your studies in order to become an asset to the Namibian nation, if not to Erongo Region and to Erongo Red.” Kahimise urged Joseph’s parents to keep an eye on him and encourage Joseph to remain focused on his studies. He further warned Joseph to be wary of social and academic challenges. “You need to keep focused to guarantee reaching success in your studies,” Kahimise advised him. “The social economic status of our country is one of the world’s poorest, primarily due to the huge disparity in income distribution and standard

Blue Cross visit to KSS Joseph flanked by his father (right) and Erongo Red CEO Robert Kahimise of living. Where the recipient is coming from is one of the poorest in Namibia so I think it’s a deserving intervention that Erongo Red is doing today.” Erongo Red, Kahimise said, is committed to rewarding hard working students to ensure that their future and the future of coming generations are secured. He stressed that the bursaries are part of the organisation/s social responsibility and not money taken from the tariffs. These are profits from the shareholders that would have been due to the shareholders. The award ceremony took place at the Erongo Red offices in Walvis Bay. Joseph was accompanied by his father Paulus Minginga. Mr Daniel Kuzatjike acting human resources

manager said the scheme started in 2012 with the awarding of two bursaries in electrical engineering. He added that in 2013 Erongo Red added two other disciplines; finance and law and three bursaries were awarded in 2013. Kuzatjike said in fulfilment of the company’s commitment to empower women, last year, one female student was awarded a bursary to study law. This year, two bursaries were advertised to study Information Technology (IT) and Electrical Engineering. However of the applications that were submitted none qualified for the IT bursary and the bursary will be re-advertised. “As a company based in Erongo region, we always

strive to give preference to residents within Erongo Region. However it is not always possible as we witness today and the recipient is from Kavango Region.” He added that the Erongo Red is not only training for Erongo region but for the entire country and hence the awarding the 2014 bursary in electrical to Joseph who comes from Rundu. Joseph’s father thanked Erongo Red for throwing the financial lifeline when all hope was lost. Joseph also expressed his gratitude to Erongo Red and said the bursary removed the hurdle that was prohibiting him to realise his dreams. To date Erongo Red has spent more than N$500 000 on bursaries.

It was explained to the learners how harmful the bad habit of smoking is, and that it is the leading cause of cancer and death from cancer. It causes cancers of the lung, oesophagus, larynx, mouth, throat, kidney, bladder, pancreas, stomach, and cervix, as well as acute myeloid leukaemia. A friendly soccer match took place last week between Kuisebmond Secondary School and Duinesig Secondary School under the theme “fun without drugs and alcohol”. Blue Cross was established and launched in the year 2000 to encourage young people and the general public to live their lives free from drugs and alcohol.  It is a Section 21 Company (S21), a company not for

gain, and operates as a faith based non denominational, non political and independent organisation. Currently, they are active in 12 schools in Windhoek. Furthermore, they also have after school alternative activity clubs, where learners from different high schools come together to take part in different activities such as chess, soccer, dance and drama. It is the mission of Blue Cross Namibia to reduce the consumption of alcohol, drugs and other related addictions by active involvement of communities through programmes on prevention, treatment, care and support.  The enormously increasing rate of abuse of alcohol, drugs and

other related addictive substances among the Namibian people called for a more concerted and concrete effort in order to curb this problem.  Therefore, Blue Cross Namibia came into being to join forces with all other stakeholders – nationally, regionally and internationally to assist those that are directly and indirectly affected by alcohol, drugs and other substance abuse. Blue Cross reaches over 6 100 youths in high schools and offer counselling mentorship to them. They initiate after school club activities that engage the youth where over 200 schools are involved. This initiative seeks to provide an alternative to drugs and alcohol abuse.

use cloth grocery bags and reusable water bottles. Use less fertiliser When fertilisers are used in gardening and agriculture, the excess eventually ends up in the ocean. One result is a “dead zone”—an area with very low levels of oxygen in the water. Since all marine life requires oxygen to live, including fish and shrimp, they must flee the area or die. Many other coastal areas are at risk too. So, use fertiliser sparingly and remember more is usually not better. Buy ocean-friendly products Avoid products produced through unsustainable or environmentally harmful methods. For example, avoid cosmetics containing shark squalene and jewellery made of coral or sea turtle shell. These products have been linked to unsustainable fishing methods and the destruction of entire ecosystems. Share the knowledge Tell people what’s going on with the world’s oceans and what they can do to make a difference. Spread the word and do something. Adapted from oceana.org, for more see oceana.org/climate

WHY? The marine resources are limited and currently some of them are overfished or over collected. It is necessary that everybody uses them wisely and carefully to secure the future harvesting needs by protecting the stock. Quantity/number of marine resources harvestable, minimum size limits of fish and crayfish that can be caught, open season etc. help to manage stocks to avoid the total disappearance of some species in our waters. Do not leave bait or fish on the beach! Either take it home or return it to the sea. This food attracts scavengers like jackals and gulls that prey on other bio-diversity. When you are back home after the holiday, it also inflates the predator population. Where can you get a license for angling, crayfish diving & bait/mussels collection?

tion. Use high efficiency appliances in your home. Turn off appliances when they aren’t in use. Turn up your thermostat a few degrees in the summer and down a few degrees in the winter. Use compact fluorescent light bulbs in your house. Eat sustainable seafood Global fisheries are on the verge of collapse. According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), three quarters of the world’s fisheries are now over-exploited, fully exploited, significantly depleted or recovering from over-exploitation. Ask your seafood restaurant or fish market to buy from sustainable fisheries. Look for special terms like “line caught”, “diver caught”, “sustainably caught” or “sustainably harvested”. Use recyclable products Plastic waste in the ocean destroys marine habitats and contributes to the deaths of many marine animals. Because floating plastic often resembles food to many marine birds, sea turtles and marine mammals, they can choke or starve because their digestive systems get blocked when they eat it. Help prevent these unnecessary deaths—

As 90% of the large species have disappeared from the ocean and diverse fish stocks are depleted by over-exploitation, only to be replaced by jellyfish and large islands of floating plastic and ‘dead zones’, it is time to rethink the ways we relate to the sea. To start with, pick up garbage and litter near beaches and don’t leave yours behind. Much of the plastic and debris found in the ocean has its beginnings in beach litter. As beach crowds increase, so does the amount of trash left behind. Don’t let your day at the beach contribute to the destruction of our oceans. Bring a trash bag with you for your garbage and volunteer for beach clean-ups. Properly dispose of hazardous materials Motor oil and other hazardous materials often end up washing into coastal areas because they are not disposed of properly. This pollutes the water and harms the overall health of our oceans. Be sure to dispose of hazardous waste in an environmentally safe way. Oxygen-depleted zones have spread to nearly 500 coastal sites around the world. A 2011 study showed that warming of the planet will turn much of the oceans into ‘dead zones’. Reduce energy use Carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels is making our oceans more acidic. One consequence could be the loss of corals on a global scale, as their calcium skeletons are weakened by the increasing acidity of the water. There are many simple ways you can reduce your energy use. Ride a bike, walk or use public transporta-

Day of Prayer in Swakopmund

Jade McClune The Pentecostal Churches of Swakopmund held a Day of Prayer on Sunday to celebrate Pentecost Sunday, the 50th day after the Passover festival. Dr Martin van Niekerk welcomed the many Christians gathered at the indoor Sports Stadium with a reminder that it was the first church service ever at the recently inaugurated sports complex. “Our turn as children of God has come. We are here today in unity with our brothers and sisters around the world. Our God is greater than any other god.” Rev. Christo van den Heever conducted an opening prayer. “We are here to ask God to bless our community

and to let mercy and love rain on us,” he said. Joel 2:28-32 was read out in Oshiwambo by Pastor Josephina Mbangu and in German by Pastor Werner Ewald: “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.” Pastor Ruben Petrus then spoke. The church needs to be touched by something trans-

formative, “something fresh,” he said. “The Holy Spirit has been engineered out of the church… Even Peter denied Jesus, but when the Holy Spirit touched him, he was transformed and brought into the light.” He said it's to revisit the word of God. Acts 2: 2-4 was read out by Mr Smittie vd Walt in Afrikaans and Pastor Lazarus Araeb in Damara/Nama. "Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.

They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”

Pastor Jaco van Rooyen spoke to the youth, saying that the young people gathered have shown a passion and zeal for the Gospel. He advised that the creative energy and talent of

the young should be brought together with the experience and wisdom of the older generation. Rev. Phillip Strydom then read out a declaration and combined prayer form the churches gathered and said “the spiritual leaders of this city are sanctifying themselves and coming together to pray and seek your face for this city, without regard for divisions… Thank you that you are delivering and defending Swakopmund out of the hand of the enemy for Your own sake and for the sake of Your people in this place,” the declaration reads in part. Pastor Emmanuel Hailaulah then spoke briefly before raising the collection bags. He asked the believers to give their money to God: “Are you prepared to give your money to God? Then give the money,” he said with great conviction. The graceful performances of a

number of artists on Sunday made the day a special and uplifting event. Music was provided by the Shofar ministry band, the Back to Christ Choir and dances were performed by the Hope and Healing Dance Ministry. Pastor Augustinus Geingob conducted the closing prayer, in which he asked for divine protection for the city of Swakopmund and its people. According to renowned theologian Dr Timothy Larsen, as reported in the Christian Post, "Pentecost is the day that the church was born. On that day, the Holy Spirit came to fill believers. Jesus had ascended, but he sent the Spirit so that believers could have the comfort, guidance, and empowerment of God's presence." Pentecost Sunday marks 50 days after Easter Sunday. The Greek word for 50 is Pentecost.

Man ‘murdered over a beer’, police on trail of suspect 

An argument over beer led to the death of a young man behind the Mondesa police station in Swakopmund on Saturday night. Mark Liebenberg  Alcohol abuse is so rampant and they come with this strict smoking law! Jaco Coetzee Yet they prioritise banning smoking.  Denise Van Bergen  And the smokers use this to trivialise their smoking habit! What the hell does one have to do with the other? Tina V Shihepo  Breaks my heart really. The poor mother of that person. May she be strong? Lucas Simbombo  No love for humanity anymore, I wonder how much value is in the beer they fought for. Sabine Seven  Over a beer? The «reasons» for killing are ridiculous, something must be done! Elvira Bock  It’s a sad thing to be murdered over a beer, its painful situation. I hope the suspect gets what he deserves. Rene du Plooy Nou toe nou, net vir ‘n bier. Werner Salpeter Please tell me again about the smoking law..... oh yeah, smoking is worse than drinking and killing someone ELSE! With smoking I kill my-

self.....guess that doesn’t matter though? Victro Ouses  I have heard of someone who was killed over a cigarette as well! Smoking next to someone who does not smoke is a health risk for a non-smoker. What does one thing have to do with the other? The fact remains, it is a life lost! Werner Salpeter  @Mariah...... you know your talking BOLLOCKS! So you prefer drunken drivers on the road / in public than a person smoking on the road / in public......yeah, I’m sure of that. Mariah Ndemta Simon  With smoking u don’t only kill urself, bt also killing ppl that are around u... @ Werner Salpeter Martin Vermaak  Drink, moet net nie rook nie. Simon Ca-pro Sheya  Etse its winter nd i stll dnt knw y pple r stll drnkng beer. Anelda Burger Barbaric, no respect for human life. Jj Mhuleqa And that picture of innocent kid on the background has to do with what in this story? Rupert Smith Waantoe beweeg die wereld mense? Word daar

‘They made me feel like a criminal’ Some customers of Mr Price in Walvis Bay are disgruntled at the way they are handled by a female employee who grabs and pulls on handbags of customers when they are leaving the shop. Jenny’s Pictures Namibia  Dalk moet hul kameras in winkel sit...met GROOT screens agter in n vertrek...WAT DOP GEHOU WORD DEUR BEJAARDES...wat eksta inkomstes soek..DIT WERK BAIE GOED... met elke persoon wat hul dan vang...KRY HUL KOMISIE. Erika de Klerk  The Mr Price staff in Walvis Bay are very RUDE in general, if asked for assistance they grumble under their breath and if u battle by yourself to get something from a very high point and drop a whole load of merchandise in the process, they stand and watch you and click their tongues, I haven’t been back in months. No intentions to do so either. Milly Marsha Orren  If they put up a notice that they reserve the right to search your handbag I will know not to enter the shop. Kayla Happy Jeremia  Mr Price is a disgrace to everyone, almost everyone experiences that ...it’s humiliating! Leandre Keet  Ek is self ook heel afge*** met hulle. Was n gereelde klant daar, maar na hulle my handsak (wat baie persoonlik is) gegryp en deur-

soek het, sit ek nie my voet meer daar nie. Daar is baie ander winkels, met baie beter diens. Es XZ  It angers me even if they or the security wants to check my shopping bag... if I have just purchased an items; it becomes my personal property and then is no longer the concern of the shop or the security! I’m no thief. I pay for what I want!!! Adriaan van Wyk  Hou op om hulle te ondersteun daar is baie ander winkels Esme Scheepers Van Wyk  Daardie kennisgewing op die venster vertel jou al klaar jy gaan soos ‘n dief behandel word sodra jy die perseel betree, nee-wat, ons hou maar verby. Met so ‘n houding kan julle maar die deure sluit. Uta Himmel  I have not visited Mr Price for almost 3 years now in Walvis Bay. I believe in boycotting rude and disrespectful customer service. I cannot believe how many people allow this to happen in many other shops at the coast. Oj Iininga  Like us we man, they use to search us wrongly, I don’t like any1 to touch me near at my private party.... I hate it and

one day I almost responded to them coz I was very angry. Kandaly KaHenock  I will buy an artificial snake put it in my handbag and go to Walvis Bay Mr Price...  naughty me. Penny Lee Malmoerin  I stopped shopping at Mr Price Walvis Bay last year September already because of their rude employees and don’t intend to go back either. Merle van Reenen  They want to look what is in your bag. I once witness a guy walking out with stolen merchandise; a male customer saw it and ran after him to prevent him from leaving the store. A fight broke out between the thief and the customer, the security watch the fight and did not lift a finger to help. When another male customer ask the security why don’t he help, what is his purpose of work let the thieves walk out of the shop, the senior security wanted to fight with the other guy instead of helping the man that is busy with the thief. Leatitia Beukes-Visagie Same happened to me in Windhoek.

Council wants to extend the borders of Swakopmund

Six suspected rapists before court A 14-year old boy was found guilty on two counts of rape in the Swakopmund Regional Court on Tuesday. Jenny’s Pictures Namibia  Dalk moet daar ondersoek ingestel word... by die kind se huis lewe.... dalk gebeur sulke dinge met hom.... nou neem hy wraak... en doen dieselfde aan ander mense...... wat GAAN AAN MET DIE MENSDOM.... MENSE IS WERKLIK

SIEK....SIEK....!!!!! Elvira Bock  An adult on a warning, a 14year old in police custody from 2012. Can u call it rape or experiment does this child have a right to a good child psychiatrist can he be rectified in a correctional state service. I hope this boy be given

a fair trial even though he did this wrongful act or to say crime. I hope that the adult man who commit such similar cases a harsher decision coz a minor is not yet able to really appreciate his thoughts, his still in process of maturing. I have my right to a opinion.

Desiree Freman What else will we still hear about, yo this is bad.... this I blame strictly on our lifestyle of today.... TV, internet etc...... just saying. Deidre Cloete  It’s terrible, really what’s happening to the moral standard of this country.

Swakopmund Municipal Council resolved last week to extend the town’s boundaries. If the new map is approved, the surface area of Swakopmund would be more than 6.4 times larger than it is currently Kandaly KaHenock That›s crazy. Such a large portion. With Dorab Park, are they going to compensate NACOMA/

Exclusive N$5 million shop for Walvis Dorcas Mhungu

The Stop Electric group has added another member to its group, Stop Electric Domestic, which will open doors on Friday in Walvis Bay, proprietor and Electrical Engineer Antonio Silheu said. The huge N$5 million outlet, at 79 Hage Geingob Street, will avail an amazing range of domestic electric gadgets, fittings, lighting and kitch-

enware to mention some that will see the coastal residents have access to top and reputable brands to suit the high, low and medium income bracket.

The outlet will stock brands like Scheider Electric, Le Grande, AEG, Vista Alegre, Radiante and Bright Star. The coastal community will get a taste of classic handmade utensils. The soft-spoken, humble and empathic businessman said the official opening is on Thursday while trading will start on Friday with lots of opening specials. Silheu said he stumbled on an opportunity while working for a fish canning factory, now United Fisheries when he was called to fix a Spanish ship that had broken down and the owners

failed to have the electric problem fixed. After fixing the problem he realised there was a window of opportunity and started Stop Electric in 1980. Born in Angola, Silheu came to settle in Namibia after fleeing the war in Angola. He later opened Stop Electric Commercial and the domestic outlet is the new kid on the block. “I am not ashamed to say I was poor but I am proud because I am where I am because I worked hard. We don’t stop here we are still going. My two sons work with me,” he said. He also owes his success to the team of dedicated

workers. Silheu learned good lessons from his father. “I work hand in hand with them. I feel what they feel and encourage team work because if one player plays badly, then the team will lose,” he added. Silheu is one of the few business operators investing back into the national economy unlike some business owners who take out the profits and invest outside Namibian borders. When he fled the war in Angola he worked in South America and South Africa but because Africa is where his heart is, he

Antonio Silheu did not think twice when an opportunity in Walvis Bay arose. That time Walvis Bay was still under South Af-

rica’s rule and Namibia was still known as South West Africa. Ever since that time Namibia has been his home.

Shishani abroad

Anri Jacobs

WALVIS BAY

The gifted songstress is on tour in Germany together with Tonetic another Namibian songster and winner of “Best Rock” at the Namibia Music Awards (NAMA) ceremony recently held in Swakopmund this year. Together they are promoting and spreading the wings of Namibian artists in Europe. The duo are describing their “Undefended” tour in Germany as, “Beautiful weather, beautiful people and great responses to the music.” Shishani shared that although they have been on the road for two weeks now, Tonetic is set to return to Namibia this Sunday while she will be returning to Amsterdam for more performances during this European summer. During their tour the two songbirds held successful shows in Hamburg, Kiel, Passau, Seefeld, Wurzburg, Bad Worishofen, Augsburg and Bamberg. Currently they are in Munich performing at “Afrika Tagen” (“Afri-ca Days”) a Festival for African artists. The pair was joined for a week by Jana Bruckner, the director of their music video “Undefend-ed,” in order to present the video in cinemas. Bruckner has since returned to Namibia. “We are touring together with German filmmaker Wolf Gaudlitz who is releasing his movie “Sahara Salaam” throughout Germany. When he visited Namibia earlier this year, he meet Jana Bruckner who presented our music and video to him. He was so en-

One of Namibia`s most talented songbirds, Shishani is currently exporting her exploits to Europe and at the same time fully focused on expanding her domestic career.

Tonetic and Shishani thusiastic about our project that he proposed for us to tour Germany with him,” quipped the singer. Tonetic and Shishani met three years ago when the later attended one of the former`s concerts in FNCC and was immediately capti-vated by his music. “We started jamming together and our musical connection was born. We’ve played in each other’s projects with me as a drummer and vocalist in his band, and he as a guitarist in my band. In 2012 we travelled together to the Lake of Stars Festival in Malawi as representatives of Na-mibia. Since then we have performed together and the song and video “Undefended” has been the product of our new musical adventures together,” shared the song-stress. In addition to all of her adventures in Germany with Tonetic and her success as an artist in Namibia, Shishani also has a great presence in Amsterdam where she is up for

“Best Artist” award on AT5, a TV station in Amsterdam. AT5 had a competition in which artists sent in their work. She is one of the five finalists who were screened live on AT5 and the Dutch public will vote for the winner. According to the song-stress, the ride has been awesome so far and she is looking forward to working more with Tonetic in the future. “The response has been amazing and people are waiting for our duo album. Tonetic, Lize Ehlers and I were part of ‘Anima’ (March 2014) which has been received with thrilling reviews. The re-run will take place in July at NTN, of which I’m very proud and excited! As for my solo project, I’m touring along with Scott Bradlee (US) in June and will be having performances lined up in the Netherlands and Greece. In October I will attend the Blantyre Festival in Malawi which I’m really looking forward to as well,” share the talented singer.

ART EXHIBITIONS

Anri Jacobs At the end of it, photography is all about light. The various ways light is captured, the speed, the angle and the temperature all can make or break your photos. However finding the “right’’ light can be tricky and perhaps the most difficult task to achieve after all the other important aspects have been obtained. The best solution is to shoot, shoot and shoot again. Trial and error is all that will bring you to the perfect lighting. Firstly, when taking photographs, it is essential to spend some time studying the source of light surrounding the scene.

For instance, shooting landscape photography demands time and effort. Revisit the same scene for a few days in order to identify the time and light that best suits the mood you want to capture. Internal shooting When shooting inside a room, it is a must to look for soft light, which means avoiding dark shadows and harsh light. Shoot near a window. Using a diffuser or ‘n white fabric will make the light even softer, resulting in the perfect soft light desired. Avoid too much bright

light coming in as this will give you dark unwanted shadows. External shooting When shooting from outside, it is essential to ensure that object is in a position where it is not directly facing the sun. When there are too many shadows and bright light, try shooting on an overcast day because the clouds will act as a life-size diffuser thus creating beautiful soft shadows. At the end the key to success is experimenting. One of the best ways to obtain an ideal photograph is through trial and error.

Shooting when overcast

Soft shadows Sometimes even the ‘wrong light’ can be the “right” light that might just work. Do not be discouraged for there is no real wrong and

right in arts and photography is a way of expression to us. Use it wisely and tell the world how you feel.

Monique Smith (18) beat 17 other contestants to walk away with the 2014 crown. She dazzled the crowd and judges with her beauty and personality. She described the feeling that came with winning the pageant as unreal. Miss Walvis Bay 2014 was held Friday evening and attracted a big audience.  The competition was tough amongst the contestants who all displayed a huge potential to win. The event kicked off with a dance item by the contestants, followed by a one by one introduction of the contestants who were all dressed in black. Vernice Plaatjes also entertained the crowd with her music. The contestants paraded in beach wear and evening wear. The top five con-

testants went through a question and answer session where their general knowledge and confidence was put to test by the panel of judges. This was the third year the event is hosted by Nikita Melani, who absolutely out did herself this year; the event was bigger and better. The event was generously sponsored by Mrs Savva. Monique Smith will be going to Windhoek for an interview to be in the top 12 Finalists of Miss Namibia, and the Municipality of Walvis Bay will be sending her to compete for Miss Tourism Namibia. If she wins these titles, she will be on her way to represent Namibia in South America in the Miss Teen World pageant later this year.

Winter Knights

Piquet Jacobs

The Winter Knights Campaign is a significant social intervention organised by Round Table, Namibia which has been running for many years now. The 2014 campaign was a success judging from the funds raised. The event took place on 6 June and contributions were collected at street corners in Walvis Bay. The Winter Knights project is a historic and popular public relations initiative of the entire Round Table in Namibia, used to show the organisation’s empathy, collect food,

money, blankets and various other items from street corners. Friday’s event kicked off at 06:00, and leading companies such as Namsov, Pennypinchers, Toyota Indonga, Remax to mention a few pitched up at collection points around town. Some businesses took the initiative to hand out hot chocolate and hotdogs, to encourage contri-

butions. The collection of money and blankets is however only one segment of the project. The most satisfying and value adding part of the project is the distribution of the blankets to the needy and less fortunate in all regions of the country especially children, the elderly, people living in poverty and remote places.

One man with Squash Notes a unique heart Namib Diesel Social League.

Global Ambassador Deon Namiseb Mavourlene Gaes Deon Namiseb (36) is an extraordinary man. Although he has limited abilities, it has never stopped him from doing what warms his heart and taking care of those who are in the same position as he is. Namiseb shared his story with the namib times. He attended school at Dagbreek in Windhoek, where he met a lady, Utah Rover, in his last year of school. Rover used to sponsor his mother’s orphanage in a township called Dolam. She invited him to be a part of the Special Olympics programme. “I joined the Special Olympics in 1992” he said. He became involved through soccer, but besides soccer he also worked with the children and used to coach them as well. He volunteered at the Special Olympics for 15 years, before leaving on his first trip to

China as a coach. His team made it to the finals but unfortunately lost to Brazil in the last minute. Although they did not receive the gold medals, they were awarded with silver medals. After his return to Namibia, Namiseb got nominated for player of the year by the Namibian Sports Association. The trophy he received was all he needed to encourage and motivate other athletes at the places and schools he visited. Namiseb went through a lot and although he may be physically challenged, he does not see that as an inability. Instead he advises other parents

with children with disabilities to stop being ashamed and hiding them. “Some parents might be afraid of what others will say and in the process they are depriving the children of the good life they were meant to lead,” he added. In 2010 he was chosen as the Global Ambassador of Special Olympics Namibia. The ceremony took place in Washington DC and since then Deon Namiseb has really grown strong as an individual, advocating that anybody can achieve whatever they desire as long as they put their minds to it and also believe in themselves.

Mini-weekend Wednesdays are back on the cards with the commencement of the Social League. All on a sugar high from the Easter Holidays it started off in great spirit and ended for some in the same way. Yes, the weeks to follow are going to be great. The results for Wednesday the 4th were as follows:FCS (3) vs Coastal Car Hire (3) - Imanuel Amorongo vs Michael Stauder 3-0. Imanuel is on top of his game and played like a star to take out Michi; Jenny Pahl vs Wynand Breytenbach 0-3. Play anything loose and Wynie will put it away; Trevor Heath vs Joseph Payne 3-0. Fortunately Joe did not have a slingshot, but then again Trev is not a goliath; Carla Cummings vs Oscar Fernandez 1-3. A great match. Oscar just having the extra wheels to carry him to a great win; Christo van

Wyk vs Lindsay Lottering 3-2. Christo, 2-love up, had to dig deep to eventually take the match; Carmen Pascual vs Sam Webster 0-3. It’s good to see Carmen back on the court again. Well played Sam, a real sportsman. Magic Discounters (1) vs Seawork (5) - Stefan van Tonder vs Trevor Grane 1-3. After losing the 1st game, Trev found his rhythm and had everything his own way for pretty much the rest of the match; Cabous Olivier vs Jacques de Villiers 1-3. A good tussle. Jacques’ experience managed to keep him from going under; Brandon Grane vs Peter Pahl 0-3. Brandon nursing an injury was always going to be in trouble against Peter who’s in good shape; Jörn Wormsbacher vs Doyle de Haas 3-0. Jörn worked his magic and zapped Doyle of the court; Arlene Visser vs Alberto Cannalles

1-3. Arlene made sure Alberto had his work cut out for him; Ester Meyer vs Bruce Stewart 2-3. If anyone had to work for his win, it was Bruce. Well played. Gateway Shipping (5) vs Supatronix (1) - Phillip de Villiers vs Jaco de Witt 3-2. I am pretty certain Phillip had to call on all his youthful reserves to eventually take what must have been a super match; Gerhard Lottering vs Leslie Bosman 3-1. Gerhard is right there and can mix it with the top guys; Dylan Spencer vs Ze de Britto 0-3. A supa start for Ze. Wonder if there was a couple of Nix in there? Hennie Koelmann vs Pieter Beukes 3-0; Bertus Fokkens vs Peter 3-0. Welcome back Bertus; Jacques Serfontein vs Enrique Viega Bastos 3-0. Jacques did not putting anything to chance against one of the new Brazilian players. Fuel Pump Repairs Af-

rica (4) vs Steel Africa (2); Clifford de Witt vs Jan de Smit 3-0. Me thinks, Cliffy, economically just used enough fuel to get him the match; Borja Romero vs Sharde Fisher 3-1. Borja was fuelled up and had the endurance to outlast Sharde; Amanda Beukes vs Lucinda Rodrigues 3-1. After a jittery start, Amanda cleared the fuel line and took a good win; Theuns van Zyl vs Blackie Zwart 1-3; Blackie played a solid game to take out Theuns; Anneke Grobler vs Chris Bruyns 0-3. Chris knew he had to take it in 3 and with steel determination he did just that; Gorettie Jansen vs Elsje van der Merwe 3-0. Goretti cruised to a good victory. The end of round one and a good start to the Socials, promising to be just as good as years gone by, if not better. Till next week.

Dusty Tour de Narraville still a pleasure Piquet Jacobs The Tour de Narraville cycling challenge turned out to be a great event, with a lot of participants, regardless of the East wind which rose up early the morning. With approximately 20 cyclists, the tour kicked off by taking the participants all around Narraville on a marked trail. Although the wind didn’t play along, it didn’t discourage any of the cyclists or the spectators next to the route, with everyone being happy in the end. The organisers decided to have a rerun of the event in August, more details to follow.

Disability never meant inability Mavourlene Gaes

Special Olympics Namibia held their regional athletics event at the Kuisebmond Stadium on Friday These athletes, who many portray as unable to fend for themselves, proved that it is not the case at all when they competed against each other. The event was held to test the skills of the athletes and the best athletes will be chosen

for the National team, which will be made up of athletes from the different regions in the country. The athletes had fun and enjoyed themselves. The event started off with the 100 and 200 metre sprints, followed

by a wheelchair race between four athletes who gave it their all on the track. Soccer was the last item on the agenda with two girl’s teams playing against each other first. This game was won

by a volunteer girl’s team who played against the athletes. Volunteers won 3-1. Boy’s soccer was the last item when the athletes from the Special Olympics went head to head. The teams were Unified A and Unified B. Unified B took the gold medal after beating Unified A by 4 -1. None of the athletes felt left out after the event as everyone who took part received medals while some were awarded with ribbons.
