Rössing offers voluntary separation packages this year

IthasbeenconfirmedbyRössingUraniumnoemployeeswillberetrenched,after the announcement of the Life of Mine Extension (LoME) of Rössing Uranium, rumours that the mine will lay off some of its employees by 2026 started making rounds.

Managing Director, Johan Coetzee told the Namib Times in a telephonic interview,“RössingUraniumemployees are not being retrenched; however, followingtherecentlyannouncedLifeof MineExtension(LoME)bytheBoardon 22 February 2023, the recommended operating model will have an impact on someoftherolesafter2027.”

According to Coetzee, the LoME does not guarantee the continuation of all current jobs beyond 2026, as the operatingmodelandworkforcestructure required for LoME is different. “The contractor mining solution for LoME is regarded as the most appropriate based onthemostresilientfinancialoptionand istheonlynon-valuedestructiveoption.” Coetzee further said, “Rössing is therefore not retrenching employees but is offering Voluntary Separation packages to those employees in the impacted areas, starting 2023 until the endof2026.”

Coetzee further mentioned that the transition plan created for the voluntary separation program is aimed at mitigating the impact of potential forced retrenchments post-2027 by affording every impacted employee the opportunity to benefit from the voluntary separation package offered by the company while pursuing other employment opportunities. TheapprovalofLoMEmeanstheminewill continuetooperateforanextended10year period until end of 2036. The alternative would mean mine closure at the end of 2026, where all Rössing employees would beimpacted.Coetzeesaid,“thegoodnews is that employment and other macroeconomic benefits will continue to exist at Rössingbeyond2026.”

Rossing's Life of Mine Extension (LoME) hasbeenextendedfrom2026to2036,this comes after the bankable feasibility study was conducted by the mine, which the boardapproved.

Put Money Aside For Your Retirement

IfoneweretoaskanordinaryNamibianwhattheyweredoingwiththeirleftover cashattheendofthemonth,theymightjustlookatyouwonderingonwhatplanet youareandwhichbustheyhadmissed.

After a few years of economic downturn and large-scale retrenchments, discretionary income is possibly almost non-existent after average Joe has paid for the necessary cost-of-living expenses,andpossiblysupportedhisorhernextof-kin with buying their groceries and covering otherexpensestoo.

“However,itbegsthequestionastowhetherone should not for a short moment consider the implicationsofnot“payingoneselffirst”,saysMr Enwich Kazondu, principal officer of the Namibia Building Workers Pension Fund (NBWPF). “It is really important to put money aside for when one is retired, even if it is just a littlebit”.

Without any provision for retirement, it would make it very difficult for most to maintain their standard of living once they are retiring. In the financialservicesindustry,oneoftenreferstothe 80 percent rule, which practically means that ideally one should have enough retirement savingsthatallowonetohaveamonthlyincome availablethatwouldbebetween80and85percent ofwhatoneisearningpre-retirement.Thatwould mean, that if one's monthly income was NAD5000beforeretiring,thenonewouldhaveto have between NAD4000 and NAD4500 per monthatone'sdisposalduringretirement.

“Considering that the old age pension for citizen over 67 in Namibia is NAD1100 per month, it is therefore critical, that everyone plans effectively andbuildsalargeenoughnestegg,toavoidthat being left destitute and vulnerable at the end of theirworkinglife,”saysMrEnwichKazondu.

“However, we know there is a degree of scepticismaboutputtingmoneyasideandpaying into pension funds. This possibly has to do with the previously announced legislation which had stipulated that 75% of benefits required to be preserved until after retirement. However, this is not enforced. On the contrary, members of the NBWPF can indeed have their fund credit paid out if they resign or are retrenched, which howeverwouldhavetaximplications.

“Atthesametime,theremightbeagenerallackof understanding of the benefits of paying into a pensionplan.Ontheoneside,ifthepensionfund

is provided through an employer, the employer would have to match the employee's contribution and no tax would have to be paid on this contribution, as they are deducted before being taxedonone'ssalary.”

“InthecaseofNBWPFfortheconstructionsector, the employee pays 4% of his or her pensionable salary and the employer makes an equal contributionof4%.

Therefore, it is important to recognise that this benefit increases the value of one's overall package”.

Regardless, there are some who feel that their moneyisnotsafeandthattheyprefertohavemuch easier access and oversight. Some pension funds, globally, fell also into disrepute due to their underlying investment decisions that were not prudent. However,thatshouldnotunderminethe principal value of making use of pension funds to makeprovisionsforone'sretirement.

Nevertheless,ifthediscretionaryincomeislimited andmanagingone'sdailylifebecomesabalancing act,thefirstthingmightstillbetoputsomemoney aside in the case of emergency into a so-called emergency fund, and to pay off any high interestbearingdebts.

“Weneedtoreallybecomemoreawarenotonlyof ourcurrentfinancialneedsbutalsoaboutwhatwe can expect our spending needs to be in the future, when we are no longer earning an income. It is reallyatoughcalltomake,consideringourcurrent economic environment. But we always need to remember,itisnevertoolatetostartputtingmoney aside.Atthesametime,thesooneronestarts–even very early in one's work life - the better, as the benefits of compound interest over the years, will dotheirwork.

“Yes, we are also aware that pension fund contributionsarenottheonlywaytomakesurethat one has enough to live comfortably when one retires. Although pension funds are an optimal vehicle for what one aims to achieve, there are otheroptionsaswell,butthesearebesttobepartof an overall personal financial strategy, and it may wellbeprudenttoseekadvicefromanindependent financialadvisor”.

International Women's Day commemorated at Swakopmund

Namibians joined the international community in commemorating International Women's Day at Swakopmund on Wednesday this week, to honour women's social, economic, cultural, and political achievements; to reflect on the progress made towards achieving Gender Equality, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determinationbyordinarywomen.

International Women`s Day is a global event focusing on women's rights and gender equality The commemoration of this day dates back to 1909 when the firstever National Women`s day was recognised in the United StatesofAmericaon8 March.

In her keynote address the Deputy Minister of Gender Equality, Poverty Eradication, and Social Welfare, Bernadette Maria Jagger said, “while International Women's Day celebrates how far women's rights and Gender Equality have come,itisalsoimportanttorecognisewhat still needs to be done. Gender inequalities suchasGenderBased Violence, especially against women and children, discrimination on the basis of one`s sex, and gender pay gaps still exist. Hence, the need to commemorate International Women's Day yearly to raise awareness on these issues and provides platforms for people to get involved with creatingchange.”

Jagger mentioned the

day is also commemorated to attract all Namibians to be active participants in the fight against Gender-Based Violence (GBV), particularly violence againstwomenandchildren; to create awareness and mobilize men and boys to be active agents in the fight against GBV; and also, to condemn GBV, especially against women and children in our societies.

AccordingtoJagger,the theme for this year is “#DigitALL: InnovationandTechnologyfor Gender Equality”. This theme is aligned with the priority theme for the upcoming 67th Session of the Commission ontheStatusofWomen (CSW-67), which is “Innovationandtechnological change, and education in the digital age for achieving Gender Equality and the empowermentofallwomenandgirls”.Thepurpose of this theme is to exploretheimpactofthe digital gender gap on widening economic and social inequalities. This theme also highlights the importance of protectingtherightsofwomen and girls in digital spaces and addressing online and Information

and Communication Technology (ICT)-facilitated Gender-Based Violence,especiallythat whichaffectsouryoung girls.

Jagger further said, “we need to develop knowledgeandskillsaimedat preventing and eliminating Gender Based Violence facilitated through technology We need to strengthen measures aimed at addressing women's and girls' barriers to digital inclusion. We need to encourage gender-

balanced cross-functional innovation and involvewomenandgirls in ICT at all levels in order for us to achieve our desired goals on GenderEquality.”

Jagger said there is, therefore, a need to strengthen efforts to achieveGenderEquality for a sustainable tomorrow A gender-responsive approach to innovation, technology and digital education can help us to increase the awareness of women and girls regarding their


Jagger said, “by celebrating International Women's Day, as a nation, we are improving our collective awareness of women's historyandincreaseour understanding of bias, discrimination,andinequity This awareness pushes individuals including all of us to take actionablestepsthatcan lead to communal change for our future generations.”

The Governor of Erongo Region Neville

Andre Itope mentioned that Women and girls remain under represented across the creation, use and regulation

of technology They are less likely to use digital services or enter techrelated careers, and significantlymorelikelyto face online harassment andviolence.Thislimits not only their own digital empowerment but also the transfor-

mative potential of technology as a whole. Itope said, “life starts with a woman The greatest love of all startswithHer Apprecatingandloving everything that women give us each and every dayisourduty.”
