Blasting Incident Raises Safety Concerns

Following the recent civil blasting incident on 29 April during the development of Erf 673 in Swakopmund's Tamariskia Location, the Swakopmund Municipality issued a statementexpres-singdeepregretfor the damage caused to a private residence as a result of the blasting activities undertaken by I.I Explosives CC.

Franciskus Tities arrived home from work that afternoon only to find his guest toilet damagedbyahuge rockthathadpenetrated the roof of his house from the development site on Erf 673 in Tamariskia, where blasting occurred around16:00.

Tities' home is located at Erf. 147 FransiskaVanNeel Street, Tamariskia.

According to Tities,whenhecalled the blasters to inspect the damage, they were very arrogant with him, which further frustratedhim.

Tities expressed concern, stating, “mychildrenenjoy using this toilet because the WIFI signal works perfectlyhere.

Imagineiftheyhad been in the toilet when this incident occurred. We were notinformedabout

the blasting, and we didnotreceivealetter regarding it I just cameacrossthenotice onsocialme-dia.This incident could have resulted in fatalities. What would have happenedthen?"

According to Tities, the most challenging aspect is that homeowners are the most affected when incidents like this occur because they do not knowwhomtoturnto for help and are not fully informed about the necessary measurestotake.

Another resident statedthatsuchincidents are not uncommon during blasting, and measures should be taken to ensure the safety of residents in the area beforehand. The resident added that the blasters were supposed to visit every household in the area to inquire about their well-being, which did not happen inthiscase.Thestreet was left covered with


According to Swakopmund Municipality's Public Relations Officer, Linda Mupupa, relevant authorities were promptlynotifiedfollowing the incident, andathoroughinvestigation, concluded on30April,wasconducted. Mupupa stated that the Office of the Chief Executive Officer is currently awaitingtheoutcome of this investigation and remains committed to full transparency and cooperation throughout the process.

Themunicipality,ina statement, expressed empathy for the homeowner's distress and inconvenience

and acknowledged the need for swift action to rectify the damage and restore thepropertytoitsoriginal standard. They assuredthatnecessary repairs would be carried out expediently and to the highest quality

When contacted by Namib Times last week, Hiskia Iiyambo, the Director of I.I ExplosivesCC,stated that according to the law, all properties within a 500-meter radius of blasting should be inspected, with any existing cracks reported prior to obtaining the blasting permit. Iiyambo claimed that his team had inspected houses on Fransiska Van

Neel Street two weeksprior,although some residents were reluctant to allow thementry Iiyambo further explained that it is requiredthattheblaster notify the authorities three days before blasting, which he claims to have done, including driving through the street 20 minutes before the blast with a siren and intercom to inform residents.

Despite the unfortunate incident affecting house no. 147, Iiyambo emphasised that he does not condone such outcomes. He stated that the maincontractorofthe property, Refuse Solutions,isresponsible

for insurance coverageinsuchevents.

Iiyambo asserted his intention to continue blasting, citing approval from the chief

inspector of explosives in the Erongo region, who holds the authority to stop him according to the law
