Namibian population could be 3,5m by 2030 Piquet Jacobs

Namibia's population demographics is undergoing a drastic transition. The population is expected to grow from 2,2 million people (2016) to 3.5 million by 2030, according to the Namibia Ports Authority's chief executive officer Mr. Bisey /Uirab. /Uirab added this anticipated population growth will create many steep challenges for the country which Government alone cannot prevent through imparatives like Vision 2030, NDP5 and Harambee Prosperity Plan. /Uirab underpinned stakeholder involvement from non-Governmental quarters is critical to assist to mitigate the challenges we face by 2030. Mr. /Uirab made these remarks on Tuesday at the 10th anniversary celebration of the Namport Social Investment Fund (NSIF), one of the flagship examples in Namibia of stakeholder involvement. Education is one of four focus areas of the NSIF and on the subject /Uirab said education is one of the sectors that faces challenges as a result of rapid population growth. "With rapid growth come varied challenges that are quite evident among others within the Education sector, where we see shortages of classrooms, overContinues on Page 2

from one of the shacks, claiming 10 shacks in the Sea Point suburb of Kuisebmond. Fortunately, no injuries were reported, though all properties were incinerated. Another fire broke out in the Sea Point area on Tuesday afternoon, also claiming a number of shacks. The fiery chaos continued on Wednesday afternoon, when the fire siren was sounded twice. The first fire alarm was to alert firefighters of a fire in Maraboe Street, Tutaleni, which destroyed seven shacks and everything in them. The fire which allegedly started in one of the shacks, spread to the neighbouring shacks while most of the owners were at work. No one was injured and the cause of the fire is still unknown. Shortly after, the fire siren was sounded once again, this time to alert of a fire in Theo Ben Gurirab Street. By the time of going to press the severity of the incident was still unknown. Due to the huge loss, neighbours soon after the fires jumped to assist the victims. Neele Nambili and her husband reached out to their church for help. The Deutsche Evang-Lutherische Kirche collected boxes filled with clothes and food from parish members to donate to the victims, as well as 30 new blankets.

A couple from South Africa shared with the South African media this week their recent ordeal at Dune 7 near Walvis Bay, when they were held at knifepoint by four men and robbed of all their valuables. The robbers slashed three of the victims' vehicle tyres before speeding off. Gert Pretorius (69), a retired Fire Brigade Chief, and his wife Emma (70) told the Middelburg Observer that on 3 August they stopped at Dune 7 as part of their tour through parts of Namibia. Pretorius walked a distance from the vehicle to pick up pebbles and his wife remained at the vehicle. His wife noticed a vehicle passing which turned around and drove towards them. Four men emerged from the vehicle and pulled knives with which they threatened Mrs Pretorius. She tried to draw Mr Pretorius' attention by whistling and when he turned around he too was grabbed and threatened with a knife. They searched the couple and took a wallet, a purse and cellphone from the couple. The robbers then searched the vehicle and took cameras and bags which contained tent pins, a cellphone charger and a cosmetic bag. The robbers then took away the car keys and slashed three of the Pretorius' vehicle's tyres in order to prevent them from either following them or finding help in time from the nearby Dune 7 Adventures. The couple walked to Dune 7 Adventures where little time was wasted to call the police and roadside assistance. The Police recovered the cosmetics bag which thankfully contained the vehicle's keys. Unfortunately, their bank cards, identity documents and driving licences were in the stolen wallet and purse. A Walvis Bay resident, Mr Johan Swanepoel, assisted the couple by providing his bank account for the couple's children to transfer money, which he then withdrew and gave to them. From media reports it was clear that Namibia's image as a safe country for tourists and visitors is frequently tarnished by incidents of theft and armed robbery. The Middelburg Observer is a widely read publication and the article found its way to several news outlets which concentrates on Namibia as a tourism destination.

hand on Monday morning, by shooting himself with a pistol, Joachim Adalbert Kulik ended his own life in front of the apartment he was renting in Waterbank Street, Kramersdorf, Swakopmund. The deceased was found in a pool of blood, with the pistol in his hand by a domestic worker around 10:00 on Monday. The domestic worker was alerted by the sound of the gun going off, while she was busy cleaning in the main house. She immediately informed the landlord of what had happened, and the police were summoned. What led to the suicide is unknown, as no note were left behind, although the landlord told police that she had noticed Kulik behaving very strange in the days leading up to the incident. Kulik lived alone and his only brother currently resides in Germany. No foul play is suspected, but the investigation continues. The body was taken to Walvis Bay Police Mor-tuary for postmortem examination to determine the cause of death.

Homeless assaulted by Swakopmund Neighbourhood Watch Sharlien Tjambari

A group of ten vulnerable and homeless young men who shelter in an old building at the old Little Foot Nursery centre says their stay there has become a nightmare because of members of the Swakopmund Neighbourhood Watch.

This group of homeless men complained this week of harsh treatment at the hands of members of Swakopmund Neighbourhood Watch. This follows only days after a similar incident at the Vintage Bar and Grill in Swakopmund where community policing members and members of the Namibian Police's permanent Force entered the premises and pepper sprayed patrons. They alleged alcohol was served outside the hours allowed by the establishment's liquor licence. Yet, no charges were pressed against the owner of Vintage. Instead the community policing group were embroiled in arguments with patrons who had to evacuate the place as a result of the pepper gas that was sprayed. Two of the patrons were “arrested”, assaulted after they were handcuffed and later threatened at the Mondesa police station with sodomy, if they did not delete the video footage. Burger confessed to the editor of namib times, Floris Steenkamp, that indeed he assaulted one of the patrons who at the time was cuffed with his hands behind his back. Four people witnessed this incident, yet at the time of going to press no action had been taken against Burger.

The young men approached namib times this week to share their grievances. According to Captain Kalola (28), he has been sheltering at this location for close to three years now. Kalola says the first year they stayed there they felt safer than sheltering in Mondesa. However, when the Swakopmund Neighbourhood Watch established they were sheltering there, they allegedly started to harass them. This included being pepper sprayed in the middle of the night whilst sleeping. “We have been tortured by these men. We have not complained, because these people feel we have no voice and no say. The worst of all is we have no power against them. Fighting back is dangerous, because they have weapons and nobody will believe us that it was self-defence” explains Kalola. The young men approached namib times and complained they feel that the neighbourhood watch is not treating them fairly. On Monday of this week, around 05:00, they heard shots fired in the direction of their place of stay. The noise was very loud. “We looked out of the window to see who was firing the shots. We realised it was a white pick-up we recognised from the Swakopmund Neighbourhood Watch. The vehicle pulled away”, explained Kalola. The young men say they tried approaching NamPol to lay a complaint about the neighbourhood watch, but every time they are chased away. Kalola also said whenever there is a housebreaking somewhere in town, members of the neighbourhood approach them and start to hurt them physically, threaten them and accusing them of crimes. “We hurt no one. We are just living at the centre and during the day we watch over people's cars to get

some money in exchange, so we have something to eat. We are harmless, but people treat us as criminals. Most of us here have not even been in a jail cell before. We just want to be left alone”, says Kalola. The group says they believe that the neighbourhood watch should invest their time in arresting the real criminals, rather than spending time torturing them on a daily basis. The young men say they simply want to be left alone and not to be forced into a position where they have to defend themselves against those who are supposed to adhere to the law too. They also said they would be delighted if the Swakopmund Municipality avail them a small home where they can all live, because they do not have parents or anyone to care for them. Sipapa Domingo (22) showed the media his health passports. He was recently admitted to hospital. Domingo suffers from mental illness and admits often he cannot remember some events in his life as a result of his mental illness. Domingo approached namib times to plead for a blanket and some warm clothes. He says the floor he sleeps on is very cold, and this makes him ill. The constant fear of the next round of assault, pepper spray and gun shots affect them all. “I have not been sleeping lately because I now live in fear. I am frightened, I know my friends will take care of me, but how do we protect ourselves from armed people?”, asked Domingo. The young men said they wish President Hage Geingob reads this and can find a way to help them. They also plead with the Namibian Police's regional command to draw the line as to how far the rights and duties of members of community policing go.

Garth Prince gave up a successful popular music career with his band Afroshine when he immigrated to Canada to join his then fiancée and raise a family. Launching his solo career in a foreign country presented many challenges, but with determination and a strong work ethic, Garth prevailed. After earning the support of the Edmonton arts community, he became known as the “African Music for Children guy”, and developed proven methods for teaching African singing and dancing to nonAfrican students and educators. Students learn these unique folk songs with ease and enjoyment. Canadian director Alicia Krawchuk and her team follow Namibian-Canadian children's artist Garth Prince as he returns home for the first time in nine years. Garth heads to Namibia hoping to recreate his popular Canadian residency program for the benefit of students in an African school. “Music of the Motherland” captures his home-coming and uncovers the reality of Namibia's history in music and culture. The ever-increasing demand for his workshops and residency program made evident the need for expanding his music repertoire, and staying relevant and in touch with his roots. To that end, Garth applied for and received a grant from the Edmonton Arts Council to return to Namibia in August of 2017. In African schools, residencies are scarce and there is no standardized music curriculum. Garth hopes to give back to the African communities from which the songs originate by using the same music to teach basic music theory to these students. Garth chose Kuisebmond Primary based on the needs of the school. It is located in Kuisebmond, a township in the coastal town of Walvis Bay, where elementary-aged students in are often overlooked when it comes to art programming. Since he grew up near this area, and his mother is a retired teacher who volunteers at the school, Garth has considerable insight regarding its needs. Through staff consultations, he learned that the school is in the initial phase of forming a school choir. Garth's skills and experience could contribute significantly to this project. The school requested that Garth work with the choir students during the residency, which will culminate with a concert for the entire school to attend. This performance, which will be filmed to create example performance videos for Canadian students, will help nurture an even deeper understanding and appreciation of the music and culture. His program will be as follows: Tuesday, Aug 15 Walvis Bay

Armed suspects rob service station Six armed robbers targeted the Total fuel service station in Narraville late on Sunday. A case of armed robbery has been opened. The suspects fled with N$54 000 in cash and various other items, including a computer box which records the premises' close circuit television system. The police said: "It is alleged that between 21:30 and 22:30 on Sunday evening six masked suspects entered the Total shop, five armed with pistols and one with a knife. The suspects held the workers at gunpoint and demanded money. The suspects left the scene with N$54 000 removed from the safe, the CCTV camera box and remote controls, a Toshiba laptop and a bundle of keys. A white Toyota Corolla was seen in the area during the robbery, but no further details could be obtained and is not clear if it was the get-away car. No arrests have been made in connection with the incident yet. NamPol request assistance from the public, asking anyone with information to contact Detective Inspector Ashikoto at 081 255 4504".

Presidency clarifies President Geingob’s Long beach accident victims escape statements with regard to the develop- with slight injuries On Saturday at around 23:15, a Polo Vivo collided head-on with a ments at the SME Bank Jeep on the B2 coastal road in the vicinity of Long Beach. The Some media-houses have misrepresented some aspects of the comments made by President Geingob at his media conference of Monday 31 July 2017 with regards to recent developments at the SME Bank. Some reports hold, in part, that the President exonerated Honourable Frans Kapofi, Minister of Presidential Affairs and former Chairperson of the SME Bank and Dr George Simataa, the Secretary to Cabinet and most recent chairperson of the SME Bank from any responsibilities with regards to state of affairs at the bank. Jp Yeah, experience taught us that if you use the not guilty until guilty statement YOUR GUILTY!!. Dr. Hage There was so much expectation positive when you took over, but it now proves that you are the MOST CORRUPT president of the 3 so far. So sad Benwiseman Whom are u lecturing? Bcs the

masses are fools, now u giving us grade 1 lessons, rite.. Carlito Spencer Still the same statement...they just made it sweeter Peter Odendaal hahahaha.. its calle "back tracking"!

occupants of both vehicles escaped with their lives, but drunken driving is believed to be the cause of the accident. It is alleged that the driver the Polo Vivo, Tari Van der Merwe (23), was driving from Swakopmund to Walvis Bay. She was the sole occupant of the vehicle. The Jeep, which was travelling from Walvis Bay towards Swakopmund was carrying three occupants including the driver, Mr Hannes Uys (43). According to NamPol's spokesperson for Erongo Uys was allegedly under the influence of alcohol. Uys was admitted to the Welwitschia Private Hospital under Police guard. Allan Roodt Seriously, how many more accidents will it take until the traffic department wakes up and realizes there is a serious problem on the roads and actually does their job which we pay taxes for and addresses the issue? David Hession Can't believe that there are so many accidents on Namibian roads.

'Oesterfees' a huge success Piquet Jacobs

The 'Walvisbaai Oesterfees' attracted crowds of people with its live entertainment and delicious oysters which sold out quite fast. The annual two day festival held their first event in 2012, which also kicked off as a success, and it has grown in strength each year, catering for more and more people. Thousands of oysters were sold at the event, showcasing Walvis Bay's successful oyster industry and the innovative ways to support the seafood and fishing industry. The event brought various well known artists to the stage, names like Ray Dylan and local artists like Jo Nichol, Len Nel and Vaughn Ahrens. People from far and wide came out to enjoy the event, from the stalls to the food available and the live music kept the crowd happy and dancing. the night away. The organisers would like to thank the community for their continued support and promise even bigger and better things for 2018.

Media release

Building a solid credit history By Anton Smit – Executive Officer: Credit Banks generally evaluate credit applications on three basic principles, namely integrity, repayment ability and security. In this article I will focus on one of these basic principles, namely integrity. An important aspect of integrity is your credit “history”. Your credit “history” is a record on how you pay bills or repay money you have borrowed. It includes your record and timeliness of payments of your bank accounts, loans, credit card accounts, store accounts and other lending. A good credit “history” helps you realise your dreams: Buying a home, car, leasing an apartment, getting a job – all these events may require a credit check. Credit grantors such as banks make use of a credit report issued by credit bureaus to determine your creditworthiness by assessing both past and current credit behaviour. How to establish a credit “history”: Begin by opening a savings and cheque account in your name. Over time, your deposits, withdrawals and transfers will demonstrate that you can handle money responsibly. Apply for a loan or finance of an asset, but be aware of the cost, since payment of interest is applicable. Open a clothing account. Start with a low amount and pay your account regularly. Apply for an open, 30 day credit account at shops where you frequently buy. For responsible users, these credit accounts are a

useful tool. All charges are due in full every month, and no interest is charged. Find a friend or family member to be a co-signer/ surety. A co-signer/ surety may help you qualify for credit, but remember that the friend or family member will be responsible if you default on your agreement to pay. Factors that can jeopardise your credit history: Late payments are noted on your credit report, even if you pay it later. You must pay your instalments as per the initial arrangement. Using more credit than your arranged facility. This action has a negative effect and incurs

unnecessary costs like penalty fees. Cheques issued with insufficient funds in your account. In addition to incurring unnecessary excess fees, your cheques may be returned which will negatively influence your credit record. Not paying your loan or asset finance. An unpaid instalment reflects negatively on your credit record and places yo u r c a s h f l o w under pressure if you have to meet m o re t h a n o n e payment the next month. Personal debt is too high. Banks and other lenders take into account your total debt when considering whether you qualify for

additional commitments. If you are placed under administration, declared bankrupt or a summons is issued against you, it will have a serious effect on your credit “history”. If this happens, it will be very difficult to restore your creditability to obtain new credit. Advantages of a good credit “history”: Makes it easier to obtain credit. Favourable terms and rates can be negotiated. Good credit is an asset. It is a valuable tool for building wealth for you and your family in the long term. How to improve a poor credit “history”: Recognise your problem, stay in contact and negotiate new arrangements like extension or new payment schedules or reach a

compromise with your credit provider. Immediately stop taking up more credit. Ensure that you can afford your monthly repayments. Try to catch up on arrear instalments and keep to your arrangements. Whilst banks need to be responsible in the extension of credit, you can be a responsible borrower and thereby limit unnecessary debt.

Pastoral Centre for St Peter's Catholic Church in Narraville Rudy Bowie

There is no doubt that the coast is a preferred destination for Namibians and visitors from abroad. Some people prefer to come to the coast for conferences or just a weekend away or for holidays. The church perspective mode of just spreading the gospel has shifted from a mere conducting of Sunday services, to other modes, such as giving workshops, training, retreats, prayer meetings, rallies and conferences. The centre will cater for such activities. The youth in the whole western deanery and other regions will now have a space for their activities. Some of these spiritual and social activities require that people come over and spend a night at the centre. We will also be able to invite other Parishes for common programmes. The whole Catholic Archdiocese of Windhoek will be in a position to conduct meetings at the centre as well. The centre will also be open to other churches, companies and the community at large, regardless of their religious affiliation; which gives it an identity as a welcoming home to all. This project will also serve as a self sustaining project for the church. With the income we should be able to maintain the facility and keep it attractive to visitors. This will be a multi-purpose facility and a community centre. Other churches in the vicinity can book it for their workshops and bible studies. People can book in their visitors when they have weddings and funerals. The centre will consist of two blocks: block B which is under construction and block A which will be built when funds are available. We expect the total cost to be higher due to the modern nature of the building and a high cost of materials. We look forward to a modern and a facility of quality. The centre was designed by Kotze Architects. It will consist of accommodation units, conference spaces and a kitchen; which would mean creating several job opportunities for the local community. In addition to sustaining the church, the centre will be a symbol of the Catholic Church's humble contribution to the development of our nation and improvement of our people's wellbeing. Since the last block will be the biggest, we will continue with various ways of fundraising. Any Good Samaritan who wishes to make a contribution towards the centre is welcome. This can be in the form of money or materials. We may name a room or a block after any person who makes a huge contribution. We are very happy to see the centre becoming a reality. May the Lord bless whoever is involved in this project and his protection over those who will be building?

Leserbrief: Befremdlich!

Erinnerungen an eine Buchhandlung Die Kurzgeschichte des Schriftstellers, Essayisten und Journalisten George Orwell aus dem Jahre 1936 wird hier in vier Episoden wiedergegeben. Folge 2 Wie manche Buchantiquariate führten wir diverse Nebenartikel. Wir verkauften zum Beispiel gebrauchte Schreibmaschinen und Briefmarken - gestempelte Marken, meine ich. Briefmarkensammler sind ein eigenartiger, schweigsamer, fischähnlicher Schlag, der sich aus allen Altersgruppen zusammensetzt, aber nur männlichen Geschlechts ist; Frauen entgeht offensichtlich der besondere Reiz, den das Einkleben kleiner Stückchen bunten Papiers in Alben bereitet. Wir verkauften auch Sixpenny-Horoskope, die von jemandem zusammengestellt waren, der das Erdbeben in Japan vorausgesagt zu haben behauptete. Sie befanden sich in versiegelten Umschlägen, und ich machte nie einen davon für mich selbst auf; aber die Leute, die sie kauften, kamen oft wieder und erzählten uns, wie «wahr» ihre Horoskope gewesen seien. (Zweifellos kann jedes Horoskop einen «wahren» Eindruck machen, wenn es einem einredet, man übe eine gewaltige Anziehungskraft auf das andere Geschlecht aus und der schlimmste eigene Fehler sei Großzügigkeit.) Ein ganz gutes Geschäft machten wir auch mit Kinderbüchern, hauptsächlich «Remittenden» und Restauflagen. Moderne Kin-

Liebe Frau Kinghorn,

dann in einem anderen Laden für einen Shilling zu verkaufen. Dennoch finden die Inhaber solcher Buchhandlungen im allgemeinen, dass es sich mehr für sie auszahlt, sich eine gewisse Anzahl Bücher stehlen zu lassen (wir verloren durchschnittlich rund ein Dutzend pro Monat), als die Kunden dadurch abzuschrecken, dass man ein Pfand von ihnen verangte. Fortsetzung folgt!

derbücher sind ziemlich scheußliche Sachen, besonders wenn man sie in Massen zu Gesicht bekommt. Für meine Person würde ich einem Kind lieber ein Exemplar des Satiricon von Petronius Arbiter schenken als Peter Pan; doch selbst d e s s e n Ve r f a s s e r, James Matthew Barrie, kommt einem noch männlich und gesund vor, verglichen mit einigen seiner Epigonen. Zur Weihnachtszeit verbrachten wir hektische zehn Tage im Kampf mit Weihnachtskarten und Kalendern, die mühsam zu verkaufen sind, aber ein gutes Saisongeschäft bringen. Ich fand dabei den brutalen Zynismus interessant, mit dem christliche Empfindungen ausgebeutet werden. Die aufdringlichen Vertreter der Weihnachtskartenverlage pflegten schon im Juni mit ihren Musterbüchern aufzukreuzen. Ein Satz auf einer ihrer Rechnungen ist mir im Gedächtnis haftengeblieben; er lautete: «2 Dtzd. Jesuskinder mit Kaninchen.» Doch unser hauptsächliches

Nebengeschäft stellte eine Leihbücherei dar die übliche, hinterlegungsfreie «twopenny-library» mit fünfbis sechshundert Bänden reiner Unterhaltungsliteratur. Wie die Bücherdiebe diese Leihbibliotheken wohl lieben müssen! Es ist das leichteste Verbrechen der Welt, in einem Laden ein Buch für zwei Pennies zu leihen, das Klebeschild zu entfernen und das Buch

Ich finde es befremdlich, daß Frau Slabbert die Lions verantwortlich macht für die enttäuschende Besucherzahl bei ihrem Flohmarkt, wo auch ein Mittagessen angeboten wurde. Swakopmund hat nicht nur 230 Einwohner – das ist ungefähr die Zahl der Besucher, die im Altersheim bedient wurde und geschlemmt hat. Es kamen nicht nur Deutsche, sondern auch Afrikaner und Engländer. Warum konnte Frau Slabbert nicht mehr Leute für ihren Flohmarkt begeistern? Lag es an dem Plakat, welches eventuell von der Masse übersehen wurde? Lag es an dem Angebot auf der Speisekarte? Ich weiß es nicht. Ich habe am vergangenen Samstag das Gemeindefest der Lutherischen Kirche besucht. Zur gleichen Zeit fand unterhalb des Café Anton eine große Fete zum 125. Geburtstag von Swakopmund statt. Es wimmelte dort von Menschen aller

Farben. Und beim Gemeindefest? Um 12:30 war der Saal voll besetzt und man konnte entweder leckeren Fisch oder Potjiekost bestellen. Im Zelt waren alle Tische besetzt, denn dort gab es Kuchen, Pudding und Kaffee. Es gibt also viele, viele Menschen in Swakopmund, die alles Mögliche besuchen und unterstützen.

Wir richten uns nach Daten, wo fast alle Lions helfen können, da sie an dem Tag nicht arbeiten, und so werden wir es auch weiterhin handhaben müssen. Mit freundlichem Gruß Renate Witt

Südafrikanische Autorin liest in ,,Die Muschel” Swakopmund (sk) In der ,,Muschel” fanden sich zur Vorstellung der Autorin Marita van der Vyfer vor allem Frauen ein. Das ist nicht verwunderlich, greift doch bereits ihr erster Roman für Erwachsene “Griet skryf n sprokie” aus dem Jahre 1992 hauptsächlich Frauenthemen auf. Auch sind die meisten Protagonisten ihrer zahlreichen Werke Frauen. Die spritzig-freche, lebenslustige Südafrikanerin lebt mit ihrem Mann und ihren vier Kindern in Frankreich. Marita van der Vyfer

größte Herausforderung beim Schreiben eines Buches? Ich habe immer gesagt, es ist im Grunde genommen einfach, ein Buch zu schreiben. Bevor ich 20 Jahre alt wurde, habe ich Dutzende Geschichten geschrieben. Die eigentliche Herausforderung liegt darin, das Werk auch zu Ende zu bringen. Das ist, wo die Schafe von den Böcken getrennt werden bzw. all die Menschen, die schreiben wollen, von den Menschen unterschieden werden, die tatsächlich Schriftsteller werden.. 4. Was treibt Sie an? Guter schwarzer Kaffee und gute schwarze Schokolade! 5. Wie gefällt es Ihnen in Namibia? Dies ist mein 5. Namibia-Besuch in 25 Jahren, und jedes Mal bin ich verliebter in dieses Land. Wer mehr über Marita van der Vyfer erfahren möchte, der kann auf ihre Website gehen: www.maritavandervyv

Muschel-Inhaber Peter Reiner hört amüsiert zu, während Marita van der Vyfer auf ihre spritzig-freche Art aus ihrer neusten Publikation vorliest. hat hier einige Fragen beantwortet. 1. Was vermissen Sie als Südafrikanerin in Frankreich? Ich vermisse es, auf den Straßen Afrikaans zu hören. Nicht im eigenen Heim, denn dort spreche ich mit meinen Kindern Afrikaans. Auch höre ich mir im Internet einen afrikaansen Radiosender an. Das Schönste an einem Besuch im südlichen Afrika ist für mich, mit fremden Menschen in Afrikaans zu kommunizieren. 2. Was fehlt Ihnen, wenn Sie in Südafrika sind, aus Ihrer Wahlheimat? Ich vermisse in Südafrika die bunte Palette an Käsesorten, die es in Frankreich gibt. Als ich vor 20 Jahren in Frankreich landete, war ich nicht gerade eine beherzte KäseLiebhaberin, aber ,,wenn in Rom, mach’s wie die Römer!” Jetzt bin ich selbst nach den blausten und rohsten Stinkekäsesorten verrückt. 3. Was ist für Sie die

FETE/FAMILY BAZAAR On Saturday, 1 July 2017, the misty weather could not keep learners, parents and teachers away. Dressed in their brand new 50th Celebration t-shirt, people arrived at school as early as 06:00 to start with preparations for the parade as well as food stalls. The Fete kicked off with a parade around the school. Learners from PrePrimary to Grade 12 and parents were dancing and singing while walking behind big float. Song and laughter filled the air and everyone's big smiles chased the cold away. At the Fete, a variety of stalls catered for old and young, colourful face painting, jumping castles, games and lots to eat and drink. The parents challenged the learners to play hockey and netball matches against them. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and left with full bellies and exhausted smiles.

Africa's Most Influential Women in Business and Government AND Titans: Building Nations SADC South - 2017

Any person having any objections to the proposed steps may lodge such objections, duly motivated in writing, with the acting Chief Executive Officer until 1 September 2017.

The awards are the leading African recognition programme honouring excellence in the private and public sector. The programme covers 23 economic sectors and has for the past seventeen years independently recognised those leaders who are at the pinnacle of their industry.

M.P.C Swarts Acting Chief Executive Officer

“Nominees undergo a rigorous multi-tiered judging process,” says Annelize Wepener, Chief Executive, of CEO Global. “Quality assurance is provided by our audit partner throughout the judging process and the highest possible standard is maintained. Those individuals whom have been recognised as winners in their field can be assured that they have truly excelled.” The SADC South leg of the recognition programme is the first part of CEO Global's recognition programme that takes it around the continent to 8 regions. In each of these regions, country and regional winners are identified. The regional winners automatically qualifying for the Continental Awards ceremony to be held in Johannesburg on 1 November 2017, where the continent's leading man and woman from each of the 23 economic sectors will be selected from the regional winners. According to Annelize, CEO Global's recognition programmes dispels the notion that Africa has a paucity of innovative and progressive leadership talent. “There are tremendously inspirational stories at core of each winner's professional and personal life story. I am really very privileged to interact with these individuals. They deserve the admiration and respect they are afforded, particularly Lifetime Achievers who have often been absolute pioneers in their field.” She also has words of encouragement for finalists: “To be recognised as a finalist is an achievement in its own right. You are without a doubt on the right path and we hope the recognition you have enjoyed spurs you on to greater things.” About Africa's Most Influential Women in Business and Government and Titans: Building Nations Awards The mission of the awards is to identify and recognise Africa's most influential male and female leaders. The nomination process for the Awards is an open process with no professional body affiliation required. Nominations are obtained from the business community and individuals during a nomination window which opens on 1 September and closes 31 December each year. During the course of 2016, just under 4000 nominations across the various sectors were received from across the continent for the 2017 awards. The judging panel comprises leading figures from the business and public sector that have excelled in their own right and understand the demands made upon contemporary leaders. The judging process consists of three tiers and is comprised of 24 representatives from across Africa. None of the judging panels are remunerated for their work and CEO Global extends its sincere thanks to Yvonne Finch (chairperson of the panel) and all the judges for the work they have done and the time they have sacrificed to make the programmes a success. Broadly speaking the judges look for candidates who have made an impact on the profitability/sustainability of their organisation or that of their employer; played a leading role in the development of their sector; willingly developed those around them and invested of themselves in the upliftment of communities. About CEO Global CEO Global is a media company that has during the last 17 years focused on the identification of Africa's leading talent and sharing their success stories.

WBPHS under 17 Netball team lost 31-33 to Windhoek Gymnasium in the final of the Bank Windhoek Super League. This year was the first year that the WBPHS played in the Bank Windhoek Super League. It was a great achievement for the girls to be in the final of the Super League but they wanted to win the cup.
