Johannes !Gawaxab to resign as Rössing chairman The chairman of the Board of Directors of Rössing Uranium Limited (RUL), Mr Johannes !Gawaxab, has announced his intention to resign in order to focus on other business commitments. This was announced on Friday in a press release by RUL. In the press release !Gawaxab is being quoted as saying that "the expansion in activities of the private equity fund that I co-founded makes it increasingly difficult for me to dedicate sufficient time and effort to perform my duties as chairman of the Rössing Board." !Gawaxab joined the Rössing board in November 2015. He will remain chairman until a successor has been appointed. A smooth handover is important. "It has been a great privilege to chair Rössing over the past two years, during which time I have worked with some outstanding people across the business", he said. The other board members are: W. Duvenhage, F.L. Namene, S.C. Trott, T.J. Wilcox, F. Fredericks, H.P Louw, E.I. Shivolo, C.W.H. Nghaamwa, D.S. Kunji-Behari and D. Erasmus.

B2 thugs target visitors yet again

Floris Steenkamp

The Namibian Police yesterday made an urgent call upon businesses and other service providers at the coast, to make visiting businesspeople and tourists aware of a current trend by criminals to target parked vehicles at spots along the B2 coastal road between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. The thugs wait for their opportunities when the vehicle occupants walk off for sightseeing. Often the victims are too far away from the vehicles and in almost all instances one of the targeted vehicles' tyres would be slashed. In the latest incident shortly after mid-day yesterday, two South Africans fell victim to four men when they parked their vehicle in the vicinity of the paragliding area off Patrysberg. The pair parked their vehicle and walked a distance to take pictures. A small, black sedan vehicle with four men inside stopped next to their vehicle, smashed a window and stole various items including their passports, handbags etc. They were too far to do anything and helplessly looked on as the thugs then slashed the vehicle's left front tyre to prevent them from giving chase or reach a police station. In a similar incident last week Miss Namibia Suné January's vehicle's window was smashed and items stolen, as she and her family stopped their car near Langstrand to walk to the beach. "Hotels, guesthouses, car rental outlets, tour operators and other service providers need to inform our visitors of the criminals' tactic to target your vehicle when you venture too far away. Slashing tyres have also become the latest fashion, as this prevents the victim from following the thugs or reach a police station in time", said this police source.

Security guard commits suicide with service pistol Sharlien Tjambari

A security official turned his 9mm service pistol on himself yesterday morning between 09:00 and 10:25, at house no. 3778 in Mondesa's Oletweni location. Tjitjeja Hiiho (23) died of a self-inflicted single bullet wound the police confirmed. According to the spokesperson for Nampol in Erongo Region, Commissioner Erastus Ikuyu it is alleged the deceased yesterday morning reported for duty as usual at Rubicon Security. Hiiho booked out a 9mm service pistol with five rounds, and asked his supervisor to drop him off at Woerman Brock Supermarket (Mondesa), so he could pick up his cell phone. The supervisor dropped him off as per his request and a few minutes thereafter he received a text message from Hiiho in Otjiherero stating: "I know we have been together, don't think too much just go and bury me." Upon receiving this message, the supervisor drove back to the Woerman Brock Supermarket where he dropped off Hiiho. When he could not find him, he drove to Hiiho's place of residence. He found Hiiho's family there. The family informed the supervisor that Hiiho shot himself. The spokesperson said the text message was sent from the deceased's cell phone number and was sent shortly before the suicide. A source close to the deceased revealed that Hiiho had threatened to commit suicide over the weekend, but he didn't say why he wanted to do so. Hiiho's mortal remains were transported to the police mortuary (pictured). The deceased's next of kin have been informed.

24-year-old Catherine Kooper remains behind bars after she was arrested for allegedly entering into a sexual relationship with a 15-year old boy at Swakopmund. Kooper made a first appearance in the Swakopmund magistrates court yesterday on a charge of rape and bail was denied. The case was confirmed by the police yesterday. According to the Namibian Police's spokesperson in Erongo, Commissioner Erastus Ikuyu, the suspect started a sexual relationship with the 15-year old boy in August this year. It is alleged the suspect accommodated the victim at her place and they performed sexual acts on numerous occasions. The police further stated the victim dropped out of school due to this relationship which lasted until 5 October. Kooper was arrested on a charge of rape (combating of immoral practice Act, Act 21 of 1980) which was opened at the Mondesa police station. More details surrounding the case are not yet available.

Man arrested with rock lobster at Waterfront in Swakopmund evening. "Not only is the rock lobster season closed, the man was using a net to catch the lobsters", said Centre Manager Ilse Marais to namib times. The accused was due to appear on a charge of illegally harvesting marine animals in the Swakopmund magistrates court yesterday. At the time of going to press the suspect was yet to make a first appearance in court. According to Marais there have been various incidents in the past whereby fishermen used the enclave created by the break-water of the shopping to fish. "Fishing on this property is illegal. It is private property", she said. The people usually attempt to fish there late at night. According to her it was a security guard who caught three people on Saturday evening at about 23:00. Two people were caught fishing barbels and were giving a verbal warning. "We have given many warning in the past, but now we have decided to enforce zero tolerance", she continued. The third person was allegedly catching rock lobsters in the small bay using a net. He was in the possession of ten rock lobsters, some of them were undersized. "It is completely illegal", Marais continued. The Namibian rock lobster season opens on 1 November and runs until 30 April. Fishermen are allowed to catch seven rock lobsters per day which must have a minimum carapace length of 65 mm respectively.

As an example, Clr Mutjavikua explained: "we have all the resources to ensure that electricity in Africa remains cheap, but our electricity tariffs remain high even though God gave us the necessary resources to ensure cheap electricity to each and every African household."

"Zimbabwe takes the dryport seriously. We feel that the dry-port in this region will increase the benefits for both countries by creating employment and we are going to look at what products are going to be shipped through the dry-port", she said. Botswana also owns and operates a dry port in the port of Walvis Bay. The delegation also visited the port of Walvis Bay and Cape Cross and paid visits to the Husab Mine and Arandis Town Council.

Sewer blockages on private premises not responsibility of municipality Sharlien Tjambari

It is not the responsibility of the Swakopmund Municipality to unblock blocked drainpipes on private properties. The municipality can only attend to blockages on the local authority's part of the sewer system. This was confirmed by Ailie Gebhardt, the Marketing and Communications Officer of the Swakopmund Municipality. The enquiry comes in the wake of residents of Extension 9 opposite the Hanganeni Primary School in Mondesa. People have been complaining of flooding of their properties when the sewer system is blocked. The blocked sewer system results in sewerage water pushing back into the residential sewer systems, resulting in overflowing wash basins, bath tubs, showers and toilets. "This is a serious health hazard. We need to do something about this now", fumed one affected resident. Residents contacted namib times and complained that in most cases when they call the municipal sewerage standby team, the team does not respond positively. The reason thereof is probably due to the lack of communication or residents being misinformed. According to Gebhardt the Municipality attends to blockages from the erf connection down-stream (into the street). From the erf connection back to the main sewer on the erf, the owner is responsible to clear up blockages. Gebhardt says it is encountered in most instances the blockages are on the residential side of the system and not on the municipality's side. "A nonreturn valve system was installed to prevent sewage flowing back into the residential system once it enters the main system. One specific case mentioned was a blockage at a certain residence occurring frequently. The Mu-

nicipality helped out and unblocked the

system free-of-charge several times. "This

should have been for the cost of the erf owner or tenants – which will be the case in future or the owner must from now onwards call a plumber", Gebhardt continued. The municipality renders a public service and cannot be over-

burdened by individual blockages where the erf owner needs to take responsibility. The owner will be required to install a device on his side of the system to prevent future blockages. The same applies for all other property

owners where sewerage problems occur frequently. "It appears that the gravitational fall of the sewer line from the house to the erf boundary is not adequate. This will be inspected and if found not to be correct, the owner will

be infor-med and if possible, it shall be insisted upon to be corrected by the owner", she concluded. That would require constructing a new sewer line with the prescribed angle of gravity fall.

Copper ship alongside

The cargo ship Interlink Audacity (pictured above) is alongside in the port of Walvis Bay to discharge 31 000 metric tons of copper concentrate. The concentrate is destined for the copper smelter of Namibia Custom Smelters at Tsumeb, where it would be processed from a copper ore state to anode grade copper. The copper is then re-exported via the port of Walvis Bay to the countries of origin.

Come and join our Suidooster celebrities at the Sérénité Sérénité is a non-profit initiative established by Windhoek based Dore Pharmaceuticals (Pty) Ltd and Alistair Izobell Productions of Cape Town South Africa. Dore Pharmaceuticals and Alistair Izobell Productions have joined forces and created Sérénité, which will be launched at The Country Club Hotel on the 28th October 2017 at a gala dinner. They have invited some of the cast of the smash hit soap opera – SuidOoster on KYKNET Channel to join them, as well as South African Idol winner Sasha Lee Davids, singing sensation Nur Abrahams and impresario Alistair Izobell with a 5 piece band. The initiative aims to raise funds to support female students of Namibia who do not have the financial means and cannot afford to purchase sanitary towels. We are aware that poverty is a problem in our country and this affects many, particularly young school girls. The effect of young girls not being able to afford to purchase sanitary towels, is staying out of school during their menstrual cycle and missing an average of three school days a month, amongst other more serious repercussions of the challenges they face. To alleviate this problem Sérénité has started by identifying three schools to supply them with sanitary towels to be handed out to female students. We will be starting a dialogue with the schools to establish the number of young ladies at each school and will be visiting the schools on a quarterly basis and provide each female student in need with a supply of sanitary towels for the three month period, as well as educational reading material. The performers joining us at the launch are as passionate about the initiative as we are and will be assisting with the roll out of the project post the event. We aim to start raising funds at the launch of this hugely important event as to kick start the roll out of assistance to our young females in

What was supposed to be a special day-trip for Suné January, Miss Namibia 2017, visiting the coast turned sour for her on Monday when she fell victim to a smash-and-grab incident.

A break-in into a car. Smash-and-grab is when you stop at a traffic sign and a piece of scum smashes the car window, grabs your belongings and runs off. We've had break-ins for a really long time, but as far as I know Namibian thieves are too cowardly for the other type. Touch wood...

Swakopmund one step closer to regulate the use of shopping bags: The Swakopmund Town Council has paved the way to develop a bylaw to regulate the use of plastic shopping bags. Also, to charge a levy for the use of plastic shopping bags and for the funds to be channelled to a unique environmental fund. The fund was also approved. According to the agenda, the recently approved environmental fund is in lieu of developing a related bylaw to legislate the use of plastic bags. Om-zaah Abner This is another daylight robbery.. this levy is straight to us consumers.. Y must we buy and still pay for carrying bags if not free plastic...? This swakop municipality is making more than enough money so instead of developing that so called environment. Cornel De Villiers This will still not keep the mess out of streets etc, penalties must be allocated to the responsible people that is causing the mess, you do not see any difference in south africa since they started paying for plastic bags, it is even worse now. Robin Tyson Excellent - bring your own bags in future. Been done in South Africa for many years now. David Botha The solution is simple. BAN PLASTIC BAGS! Chriszette de Beer Walvis Bay????

No solution for residents of Masilo street Sharlien Tjambari

For many years residents of Swakopmund's Masilo Street located in Mondesa have pleaded with the municipality to set up a speed hump in their street, as the road has a reputation for being frequented by reckless drivers. Help won't be coming anytime soon, as it seems Council does not have funds to construct a speed hump. The residents living along the road have been pleading with the Swakopmund Municipality, as they feel their lives are in danger. Most reckless driving incidences take place during the early morning hours. Coincidentally these accidents happen when shebeens and bars close. In some instances, reckless drivers have crashed through boundary walls of homes in this street. Namib times enquired from the municipality on the way forward a month ago. Feedback was received recently. According to the Marketing and Communications Officer of the municipality, Ailie Gebhardt, an investigation at Masilo Street and the surrounding area was recently carried out by municipal officials. “A speed hump should be erected in Masilo street. This will be a long-term plan as funds are not available right now. The street has a gravel surface

and first needs to be tarred or interlocked, in order to erect the speed bump. We cannot com-pare or compromise the safety of lives against the maintenance of the street”, said Gebhart. Gebhardt added the barrier kerbs should be erected at the intersection, but the owner of one of the plots should move his boundary wall backwards first, in line with the prescribed building line. She also said that Council can arrange for a chevron board to be erected immediately in front of house no. 1771 in Mondesa. That particular spot is very critical. Gebhardt advised that should an accident/ incident occur, the residents in the surrounding area are encouraged to note down the registration number of the offender and report it to the Municipal Traffic Section or immediately call or text to the following standby numbers: 081 122 4677 or 79.

10 OCTOBER 2017

Royal Schools Chess Challenge 2017 The Dome Swakopmund hosted its first major chess event when the annual Royal School Chess Challenge was played over the last weekend of September. The event attracted a record number of 162 chess players with ages ranging from 6 to 18. Players from 13 Schools drawn from 5 towns – Windhoek, Omaruru, Karibib, Swakopmund and Walvisbay – converged to fight for the annual Academy prizes in 6 different age groups. The tournament has always served as a development chess event for Erongo schools. A thick silence dropped over the large Conference Centre hall at The Dome Swakopmund as 162 player's battled for supremacy in the world's premier form of mental recreation. In some games it came down to the final seconds as one player's brilliant idea was countered by an equally good counter strategy. Chess is a thrilling game even though everything is stage at the mental level. It is as if two players engaged in a debate much deeper than mere talking. Royal Chess-Minds Academy is the largest affiliate of the Namibian Chess Federation and was founded in 2009. Since then it has consistently worked in Windhoek, Swakopmund and Walvisbay on a weekly basis. Head Coach and Founder CM Charles Eichab did the rounds for 6 years. CM Eichab is a six-time Namibian Chess Champion and also a popular coach and chess player. In 2016 after a year as assistant coach, Immanuel Gariseb popularly known as Coach Imz was installed as full coach at the Coast. He brought a new enthusiasm and vigor to the coaching. The Academy has also ventured in helping students that want to specialize more in chess whilst still maintaining its strong school based posture. This strategy proved profitable as the Academy won gold in four open categoriesoutright of a possible seven earlierthis year at the National Junior Closed Championships. Some schools have integrated chess into their school curriculum and its benefits are quite evident.Says Coach Charles "Chess in the classroom is always a welcome diversion for learners. They find it to be a fun subject whilst they learn many skills transferable to other areas of life." We would like to thank The Dome Swakopmund for sponsoring the beautiful Conference Centre which served as an ideal setting for the tournament. For all inquiries to join the academy or simply to learn chess e-mail to

Rossmund Golfing News Helmut Ndjendja was the host in the driving seat on Saturday 7 October with some thirst quenching Windhoek Lager Beers on offer – sadly there was only a very small field of golfers – mainly due to various other activities on the go at the Coast including the nail biting Currie Cup Game Namibia vs Boland. As always Helmut took the day in his stride with his welcoming smile and the weather played along with some beautiful sunshine. There were no two clubs – however scores were close. Winners: - 1st: E Lehmann/T Haimbondi 46pts; 2nd: W Theron/D Benson 44pts; 3rd: N Nanhinda/G Louw 43pts; 4th: G Murasiki/H Ndjendja 42pts; 5th: E van Wyk/B Saunderson 39pts; 6th: G Cloete/H Naobeb 38pts. Well played and thanks again to the sponsor Namibian Breweries/Windhoek Lager. Saturday (30 September) we had our Monthly Medal and there was a reasonable field vying for the "catch of the day". Weather conditions were good - this led to excellent scores and lots of 2-clubs coming from L Nande; A McLean; M Ludeke: J v/d Merwe and B Saunderson - well played guys. It would appear as if our Captain is really cooking at the moment shooting an excellent 65 nett to take Overall Winner; H Ndjendja took the "A"Division 73 nett (see what happens when you are a champ!! - quick change of division); "B" Division - A Bonifatius 69 nett; "C" Division: J Van der Merwe whilst R Knight was the Ladies winner with a 70 nett. It looks as if our Juniors have their heads down for the year end exams - we wish them luck. Thanks for a great day and to Novanam for their sponsorship. Wednesday (4 October) was a completely different "kettle of fish"- oh!!! did that wind blow and the sand only the "die hards" completed the course whilst the not so adventurous waited for them quietly in the club-

house? We had lots of visitors which was great - although on the other hand they may be picked the wrong day. Once again there was a count out for the Most Golf!!! With Grant coming out tops over Achmet; the 9 hole prize went to Rina with an excellent 21pts over the back nine. This weeks 18 hole prize went to Dominee Manus with 34pts followed closely by Gert on 32pts. Thanks again to Gerhard Byeveld/ Advertising Displays for the sponsorship. Some other stuff: Doubles Matchplay - Semi Finals - Willie/Kevin vs Fanie/Fritz; Org/Fanus vs George/Jacque Singles Matchplay - Finalists - Round Robin - Mark; Jacque; Likuis. Merit Lists as at 30 September Destination Swakopmund - Achmet/Eddie 190; Desmond/Dean 170; Warren/Bertie 110; Fritz/Dawid & Zelda/Tiekie 100. Novanam - Helmut 91; Likius 88; Anton 78; Bertie 69. Tree Bowl Rule - Oom Bill advised that from the 200 cards he has scrutinized from September only 8 showed annotations that the rule was executed. You still have the opportunity this month - so please annotate your cards correctly. I like this one: A friend, who had a powerful telescope, invited Old Tom Morris to make use of it for a view of the moon. Tom looked at the magnified moon attentively. "Faith, sir," he said, "She's terrible full O'bunkers". Have a great week and stay out of the bunkers.

Shotokan Karate Academy International (Skai) Black Belt Grading Shotokan Karate Academy International (SKAI) had their National Black Belt Grading on 11 August 2017. At this gradings, an attempt was made by karateka to obtain the coveted black belt. The karateka who were successful were honoured at an illustrious ceremony held at the Yacht Club in Walvis Bay, on Saturday 7 October 2017. The Karateka who were tested for shodan, had a minimum of five year experience, with some of them even having as much as nine years training, in karate. The syllabus which they had to comply with is very stringent, resulting in all of them training and preparing since the beginning of the year for the above grading. Before an attempt could be made to grade, all karateka grading had to undergo a "grueling" pre-grading, where all technical aspects were finely scrutinized by four senior instructors. The karateka were graded on aspects like, proficiency in basic techniques, proficiency in forms, proficiency in combat, fitness, etiquette and procedure, neatness and attitude, eye position, concentration and self-control. The grading panels, consisting of the four highest graded Namibia Shotokan karateka, were very impressed with the standard displayed by the karateka. To be successful, karateka had to demonstrate that they have the required skills, values and character traits required for the Shodan rank (1st degree Black Belt). The chief instructor of SKAI, sensei Willem Burger made the following observations regarding the achievement of obtaining a black belt. · For every 10 000 people that join a Karate school, half will drop-out within 6 months, · Of those remaining students about 1 000 will complete a year of training before quitting, · Approximately 500 students will study for 2 years, but only 100 will be there in 3 years, · Usually only 1 or 2 will progress and be successful in obtaining their 2nd degree Black Belt, · 1 Will progress to teach others as he/she has been taught – this person, 1 in 10 000, is a true Black Belt Sensei Willem Burger also observed that a black belt means that the person now fulfils the role of a modern day Samurai. The word Samurai originally meant "one who serves". Black belts serve their family and community and protect those that cannot fend for themselves. The black belt also lives by the bushido code (warrior code) and living values like loyalty, honour, courage, unselfishness, fairness, sincerity, honesty and courtesy are of the utmost importance. Being a black belt means constantly developing yourself physically, mentally and emotionally to face the challenges and opportunities that life presents, and then to pass along these tools to those around us so that they all may benefit and take best advantage of all opportunities that arise in their lifetimes. Sensei Willem explained that wearing a black belt does not mean you are invincible, it does mean that you never give up, you are prepared to work past pain and disappointment and do not cave in to your doubts and above all you are prepared to face your fears. The senior karateka who all graded to first degree black (Shodan), and who were honoured on Saturday were: · Marvin Katjihingua · Bufelo Lushetile · Keegan du Raan · Ernst Hagen · Chanton Mackrill · Jordan Rittmann · Adelinde Lang · Lene Mans · Christel Booysen Shotokan Karate Academy International is extremely proud of the achievement of the above karateka and gladly welcome these warriors to the Shotokan Black Belt scroll of honour. Shotokan has training centers in Windhoek, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay.

Inauguration of Shotokan Karate Academy International (Skai) Shotokan Karate academy is proud to announce the inauguration of "Shotokan Karate Academy International" (SKAI), which is basically a revitalizing and re-branding of the Shotokan Karate Academy brand that has been in existence for longer than 25 year. Sensei Willem Burger, the chief instructor of SKAI, explained that the Shotokan shihankai (executive management) held a meeting on 5 August 2017, to specifically deliberate: · How to revitalise the organisation which has been in existence for more than 25 years, · How to introduce new structures and design to the organisation to face the modern challenges, · How to align the organization in terms of the latest management philosophies, so that we may also expand our footprint as an organisation internationally, · How to unite all "kindred spirits" under one organisation to enable all to benefit from the capabilities that this larger organisation offers, · To agree on why the organization exists, and to redirect and focus efforts accordingly. The culmination of all discussions and deliberations led to the re-branding and re-design of the Shotokan Karate Academy. What transpired was: · The name of Namibian Shotokan Karate Academy was changed to Shotokan Karate Academy International (SKAI) to enable the organisation to also accommodate international members which wish to join, · The structure was changed to accommodate local demands and requirement, · An international leg was also created to accommodate and address international needs and requirements, · The logo was changed part as a re-branding exercise, but also to more correctly signify the origin and

legacy of Shotokan karate. This logo now displays the Shotokan tiger as was originally designed for Shotokan karate by a student of the founder of Shotokan Karate, Gighin Funakosi, · All shihankai (executive members) agreed that Shotokan Karate exists as "We are in the business of positively influencing lives, to better prepare our members for the challenges that the modern world presents. We are serious about preparing our youth and senior karateka with the needed skills, values and character traits that will enable them to survive physical threats and also act as a moral compass in this complex world." All efforts will be re-aligned and re-directed to ensure these objectives are met. The Namibia Shotokan Karate Academy has been in existence for longer than 25 years and still has all the original founder members which form the shihankai (executive management). We have had some deliberations with other organisations and are proud to announce that the 1st organisations to join "Shotokan Karate Academy International" are: Locally, · Japan Karate Association Namibia (JKA) – Sensei Theo de Kock, and Internationally: · Shotokan World Karate Do Federation South Africa – Sensei Leon van Vollensteen We are proud to announce the re-branding and extension of the capabilities of this organization which will be in future known as - "Shotokan Karate Academy International" (SKAI).

Namibia hosts Uruguay for Rugby Test

The Namibia Rugby Union is delighted to confirm that the national rugby team of Uruguay has accepted an invitation to tour Namibia during November 2017, with the assistance of World Rugby.

The matches will be played on 18 and 25 November 2017 at the Hage Geingob Stadium in Windhoek. These matches are crucial in preparing the Namibian team for qualification for the 2019 Rugby World Cup during June and July 2018, as no other matches will be played before that. The test matches will

also form part of the NRU centennial celebrations which were postponed last year. On 17 November 1916 the Damaraland Rugby Football Union was established and as from 1952 was named the South West Africa Rugby Union. After Namibia's independence in 1990 it became the Namibia Rugby Union. Uruguay

had an impressive performance during the year 2017 and is listed 18 on the international ranking. The team from Uruguay will provide good and strong opposition for the Namibia National team that is ranked 21 in the world. The NRU are thankful for Namibia Breweries with their brand, Windhoek Draught, for strongly

supporting the Namibian National team and Namibian rugby. All further details will be shared in the media.



Namib Diesel Social Doubles League It can be taken with certainty that the way the league has progressed so far all the players are pretty eager to know where they are on the leaderboard at the moment, so not one to disappoint. The present points standing is as follows:Men's A ImanuelAmorongo/Stefan van Tonder 12, Fuel Pump Repairs Africa: Jaco de Witt/Angelo Titus 10, Emil Dorgeloh/DanieGreeff 9, Synapse: Leslie Bosman/Brandon Grane 6, Erongo Equipment Hire: Michael Stauder/Trevor Heath 5, Jewellery Boutique: Wynand Breytenbach/Jacques Steenkamp 4 & Supatronix: Ze de Britto/Sergio Figueiredo 3. Men's B. Blackie Zwart/Bertus Fokkens 9; DrikusZwart/Chris Bruyns 8, Luke/Jon Allen 7, Magic Discounters: Poena Olivier/Edwin van Urk 6, Ockie du Plessis/Floris Steenkamp 4, JC Platt/Tilden Smith 4 & Itchy & Scratchy: JakkieNel/Ricardo von Stein 3. Mixed A. Emil Dorgeloh/Chantel de Gouveia 9, ImanuelAmorongo/ChrestelleEiman 9, Angelo Titus/Carla Cummings 9, Leslie/Anet Bosman 5, Edwin van Urk/Arlene Visser 3; BykesMuashekele/Lindsay Lottering 0 & 1st Guarding: Eric Mans/Diana Meyer 0. Mixed B. Charlton Brussel/Zeenad Martins 12, Jaco de Jager/Anna Maria Venter 12; Christo van Wyk/Zola Nel 9, Doyle de Haas/Cindy Kruger 9, Liandro Martins/JacolineOelofse 4, Alan/Heibri-Ann Hartung 3, Michail Pretorius/Amy Volker 3 & Lindi Dreyer/Gabriela 0. So with 3 rounds to go there is still everything to play for. The results for Wednesday 4th are as follows:Men's A Section Emil Dorgeloh & DanieGreeffbtErongo Equipment Hire: Michael Stauder & Trevor Heath 3-0. These guys are in a different class, as soon as one thinks they are getting the upper hand against them they up their game a notch and the rest is history. Fuel Pump Repairs Africa: Jaco de Witt & Angelo Titus beat Jewellery Boutique: Wynand Breytenbach & Jacques Steenkamp 3-1. Firing on all cylinders it was all systems go for Jaco/Angie who took advantage of Wynie/Jacques' rather lacklustre performance. Synapse: Leslie Bosman & Brandon Grane beat Supatronix: Ze de Britto & Sergio Figueiredo 3-1. Les/Brandon's ping was good and delivered a byte that was far bigger than there bark. Men's B Section. Blackie Zwart & Bertus Fokkens beat Ockie du Plessis & Floris Steenkamp 3-0. Blackie/Bertus have a good understanding and quickly disposed of Ockie/Floris. JC Plat & Shaun beat Jon Allen & Paul 3-0. It was a good win for JC/Shaun. Chris Bruyns & Pieter Beukes beat Itchy & Scratchy: Jakkie Nel & Ricardo von Stein 3-1. A steel performance by Chris/Pieter put an end to any aggravations caused by Itchy/Scratchy. Mixed A section. Angelo Titus & Carla Cummings beat Bykes Muashekele & Lindsay Lottering 3-0. W/O Imanuel Amorongo & Christelle Eimanbt 1st Guarding: Eric Mans & Jenny 3-0. It can be taken that the match was always under Imanuel/Christelle's control. Leslie & Anet Bosman bt Edwin van Urk & Arlene Visser 3-0. W/O Mixed B section. Doyle de Haas & Cindy Kruger beat Lindi Dreyer & Matt 3-0. Christo van Wyk & Zola NelbtMichail Pretorius & Amy Volker 3-0. Experience must have played a big role in this win. Charlton Brussel & Zeenad Martins beat Liandro Martins & Jacoline Oelofse 31. One can almost say it was a spot of sibling rivalry. Charl-Zee came out tops in this clash. Jaco de Jager & Anna Maria Venter beat Alan & Heibri-Ann Hartung 3-0. The Hartung's had to forfeit the match, as Heibri sustained an injury. Take note the penultimate and final rounds will be played on Wednesday and Friday next week respectively. On that pleasant note it's time to shut down and hit Club Duvet in a big way.

The visitors required an 80th minute try from flyhalf Elgar Watts to secure their four log points which moves them into fourth place on the log, one point ahead of the SWD Eagles who miss out. The Welwitschias were leading 24-21 with time up on the clock but the men from Wellington were pressing hard, needing more than a penalty to secure their place and Watts provided after some good build-up from the Cavaliers. The visitors were moving the ball from one side of the field to the other and eventually the dam wall burst and Watts was able to dive over in the corner for the winning try. It was a bad start for the Welwitschias who had flanker Rohan Kitshof sent to the sin-bin as early as the sixth minute and the Cavaliers used their one-man advantage to good effect as they opened the scoring with centre Alcino Izaacs scoring a try close to the poles, making the conversion for fullback Adriaan Carlese an easy one. But once Kitshof returned to the field, the hosts began asserting themselves, forcing the Bolanders to turn and chase. Boland were to suffer a yellow card of their own as flanker Wayne Wilschut was sent to the bin after 26 minutes and the Welwitschias struck, and struck hard. Right wing Johan Tromp scored the first of his side's four tries in the right-hand corner and then four minutes later, fullback Mahco Prinsloo joined the line to perfection, sliding through the Boland defence to score their second try and take the lead with fly-half Theuns Kotze converting to give the home team a five point lead. The return of Wilschut made no difference as the hosts scored their third try of the afternoon with centre Lesley Klim darting through the defence
