Tender closed inside Broken for salvage of “Fukuseki Maru” Public World-renowned Nick Sloane toilets possibly part of this project Floris Steenkamp Local diving and salvage operator, Walvis Bay Diving and Salvage, confirmed this week it has teamed up with world renowned marine salvage expert Nick Sloane for a tender project to salvage the wreck of the Japanese tuna fishing vessel, Fukuseki Maru, which ran aground near the mouth of the Ugab River in March 2018.

More than 13 million tons of plastic into the ocean each year Namibians urged to grasp the value of our ocean - World Oceans Day Floris Steenkamp Humans are still in the process to try and understand the Ocean. The human race know more of the surface of the moon than what it knows and understands of the seabed. Yet, the Ocean is critical to our survival as it produces 70 % of the oxygen needed by life on the planet and is responsible for weather patterns and food security (fish). With the above statement the Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources on Saturday, during World Ocean Day, called upon Namibians to do their part in conserving the Ocean. Human activities are devastating oceans around the globe directly through pollution. On an indirect level human activities cause global warming, which in turn also negatively influences the health of oceans. Minister Esau made these remarks during the celebration of World Ocean Day at the Kuisebmond sport stadium. Walvis Bay pulled all the stops to make 2019 World Ocean Day memorable. It commenced on Friday with a clean-up of the Independence Beach north of the harbour town. Simultaneous various schools and private groups committed to clean-ups in and

around Walvis Bay (Also See page 8). On Saturday the Minister addressed the public who attended the celebration and there explained the Blue Economy concept to which Namibia subscribes along with all countries globally. Namibia borders the Atlantic Ocean with a shoreline stretching 1500 km. From the Atlantic Ocean the country derives economic benefits which include fisheries, marine mining, maritime transport, two sea ports, marine and coastal tourism. A Blue Economy dictates that all stakeholders who derive their benefits from the Ocean need to ensure that all processes and procedures conform to keep the ocean clean and healthy. Pollution and overfishing are examples of the neglect of the Blue Economy. In this regard,

Portugal Day celebrated The Portuguese community of Walvis Bay celebrated Portugal Day or Portuguese Day over the weekend with several festivities that took place on Saturday and yesterday (Monday). Although this is Portugal's national day (9 June), Portuguese speaking people from all nationalities celebrate this every year on 10 June with a feast of Portuguese cuisine, Portuguese cultural events and rejuvenating family and friendship ties with cheerful house parties or more official events such as Portuguese Day that was celebrated at a local hotel in Walvis Bay on Saturday night. The local Brazilian expatriate community of Walvis Bay celebrated Portuguese Day yesterday with cheerful parties that brought welcome colour and atmosphere to Monday. Portuguese Day commemorates the death of one of Portugal's literary icons, Luís de Camões who died on June 10, 1580.

Walvis Bay Diving and Salvage expressed satisfaction yesterday with is international partner and added several other Namibian salvage service providers are also on-board for the project. Sloane developed a unique plan to first pull the Costa Concordia upright and then re-floated her. With regard to the Fukuseki Maru, the vessel ran aground and is wedged between underwater rocks more than one mile offshore. The salvage would pose a number of challenges, it was explained yesterday and would need the services of heavy lift helicopters to first clear the ship from all items that is removable. With the hull then empty like a fish tin, it would then be dismantled and also transported ashore. The wreck is located 15km south of the Ugab River mouth. Note: The Directorate of Maritime Affairs (DMA) already issued a wreck removal notice several months ago. The notice compelled the insurer of the Fukuseki Maru, PNI Japan, to invite tenders for the salvage work. The tender closed at the end of May.

Furnmart Strikes Isaac Chikosi Employees from furniture stores Furnmart and Home Corp Namibia are still on strike after failed salary negotiations. The strike which officially began on 1 June this year continues as the bargaining agent Metal and Allied Namibian Workers Union (MANWU) and employees wait for favourable action from management. In Swakopmund, some employees who participated in the strike gathered on the vacant plot across from food lovers Market with placards demanding better salaries including housing and transport allowance. Employees who spoke to the namib times on condition of anonymity said they are not happy with their current salaries. “We don't have any benefits like medical aid, and it seems management is not taking us seriously”, said one employee. According to MANWU's President Angula Angula, negotiations which began in 2018 already ended in a deadlock on 19 February 2019 and a certificate of non-resolution was then issued to the parties necessitating a legal strike. Evidently though, some workers did not heed the strike and reported for work as usual. When asked whether this would influence the strike at all, Angula responded by saying: “Remember that if there is an individual who refuses to take part in the strike, this is a choice of an individual and he/she cannot be forced. This is a challenge and it will be also a bad impact toward the union if there are those decided not to take part in the strike (sic)”. He added that, “We strongly believe that our members must not go to work until this management change their mind”. MANWU is currently engaging with the Ministry of Labour to finalise the matter promptly. As to how long the strike will last, Angula had this to say, “We hope everything will go according to our plan and nothing must fail, from our side we have done our homework, the strike is protected, we have all documents in place, we received the strike rule that is guiding us, so if the management decides not to respond as soon as we expecting from them, we will meet at the higher court.” Attempts to reach management for comment were futile.

stated the Minister, Namibia is a signatory to the Paris Climate Change Agreement and joined countries in their plight to major greenhouse gas emitting countries to meet their commitments under this Paris Accord to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Namibia is also a leader in fisheries management to prevent overfishing and during actions such as the World Ocean Day celebrations Namibians are sensitised and educated on the importance to look after our ocean. Minister Esau pointed out plastic pollution is an issue every Namibian must take serious. Plastic ends up in the oceans of the world – 13 million tons per annum which could lead to a devastating moment in 2050 when there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. The Minister took the time to individually thank the stakeholders who carried out exemplary work to make the 2019 World Ocean Day such a big success: The Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources staff; the Benguela Current Commission (BCC); the Albatross Task Force (ATF) and Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF). “This is our ocean. Let us sustainably develop its blue economy potential, for the benefit of all Namibians. Let us protect it from pollution, let us all do our part to keep our ocean healthy, for the benefit of present and future generations of Namibians”, the Minister proclaimed. Note: as part of World Oceans Day a soccer tournament was played in Walvis Bay over the weekend. See the results in our sport section of today's edition.

NAMOSA official launched Rudi Bowe

Namibian Maritime Officers and Shipping Association (NAMOSA) officially launched the non-profit association last Friday. NAMOSA was first registered as a Union with the Ministry of Labour in 2003 and in 2018 it was changed to an association not for gain. Marine engineers and navigation officers who are Namibian Maritime and Fisheries Institute (NAMFI) graduates subsequently registered NAMOSA on 30 November 2018 with the Business Intellectual Property Authority (BIPA). NAMOSA was established by a group of maritime officers who graduated from NAMFI and seeks to represent and protect the interests and welfare of the rest of these officers, in their capacities as marine navigation and engineering officers. Erongo Governor, Cleophas Mutjavikua in his remarks during the official launching of the inaugural NAMOSA has cautioned associations to avoid being used to achieve political agendas and instead advocate for the purposes for which they were created. Mutjavikua said “We know that currently some of the unions are being used to achieve funny political agendas and have diverted from their intended aims and should not use workers to achieve hilarious political agendas”. The governor advised that the associations should remain with issues affecting workers and their needs and that NAMOSA should be an association of discipline and to embrace the process of collective bargaining and negotiations as a way of trying to

resolve differences. NAMOSA Chairperson, Phillipus Iwete said “NAMOSA will monitor and enforce the Namibianisation Policy and its strict adherence as per government directives and policies concerning the maritime industry expressed a number of difficulties previously encountered by maritime officers in the industry over the past few years”. Iwete added that their aims are to address challenges faced by maritime officers by being the link between the industry and related stakeholders and although the officer's challenges in the industry and it will not be solved immediately and that NAMOSA would tackle them head-on as soon as possible. According to Iwete there are more than 500 qualified Namibian engineers and officers in the industry that are not represented, while the crew members are affiliated to unions. The fishing industry has also many associations that represent their members' interests. The plight of NAMFI graduates remains a growing concern for many years and NAMOSA will represent and protect the welfare of all these maritime officers. The association will mainly advocate for the transformation of the maritime industry and will be tackling challenges faced within the fishing industry and strive to improve aspects of it related to the welfare of Namibian maritime officers in particular.

Ministry of Finance and State Hospital – Toilets Out of Order Eileen van der Schyff

Several members of the public contacted the Namib Times this week concerning broken toilets at the Receiver of Revenue and the Walvis Bay State hospital. The toilets are not dirty, but they are out of order said one man who explained to the Namib Times what he experienced when he was in the building and needed to visit the toilet. “None of the five toilets at the Receiver of Revenue offices are in working condition. Two are taped closed and the other three cubicle doors were locked. The urinals are all covered in plastic.” The man then spoke to an employee of the Receiver of Revenue who told him that they did contact the Ministry of Works and was told that the Ministry of Works do not have the tools or the money to fix the toilets. The problem is not only at this building. Another reader contacted the Namib Times with photos of the toilets at the Walvis Bay State Hospital. Most toilets at the hospital are also out of order and covered with plastic bags.

Owner of impounded dog unhappy with animal control unit Sharlien Tjambari

They say a dog is a man's best friend and you cannot easily separate the two. A lady living in Matutura at Swakopmund, who identified herself as Monique, is very upset because officials from the Swakopmund Municipality's Animal Control Unit went to fetch her dog and took it to SPCA without her permission. Monique said about three months ago her Boerbull dog bit a child while they were visiting her friend in Matutura. “We don't have any walls because the location is new and we have just moved in. My dog is not naughty and never bites people but jumps on them as he is very playful. On that day I was called as my dog

allegedly bit a child. I wanted to give her taxi money so she can go to the State Hospital. The victim’s mother refused and said she has a medical aid and she was going to take her child to Cottage MediClinic. I told her that I could not afford Cottage, but she insisted. When the victim returned, she had a bill of N$4 000”. Monique further

explained the mother of the child wanted her to pay the N$4 000, but she insisted that they show her the doctor's report. She was refused this request. The next day the mother allegedly brought the police to her house. The officer was very rude and didn't want to hear her side of the story, so she chased him away. “For a month we

didn't hear anything from them. Then I received a call from the municipality telling me to keep my dog on a leash and I complied. Two weeks ago however, officials from the animal control unit came to my house and took my dog. There are many other dogs running around in the streets. These dogs are not taken from their owners. My

child was also bitten by a dog here. I reported that incident, but the dog is still on the loose. I am not happy with the way the situation was handled”, said Monique. Loide, who is the mother of the child who was bitten, counters the allegation and says Monique was very rude and unhelpful. That include refusing to pay the medical bill. “That is why I contacted the police. I paid more than N$2 000 for an injection which my girl had to receive because of the bite. Monique allegedly also took an arrogant stance and

threatened to hire the services of her lawyer. When contacted by the Namib Times, Mr Kambanda who works in the Animal Control Unit said he tried on many occasions to get Monique and her family to go to the child's house and talk to the mother. Also to assist paying the medical bill. She simply don’t want to cooperate. I have warned them many times before the incident to put their dog on a leash after neighbours also complained. People living in the area fear the dog and fear for their own and their children’s safety”, the officer

explained. When I exhausted all my options available we went to collect the dog and took it to the local SPCA. about two weeks ago”. The SPCA confirmed that the dog is still in its care and waits instructions from the municipality.

Paratus launches Mumwe - a new Opinion: World Oceans Day 'combined' data pool Paratus Africa in Namibia has once again taken the lead in bringing innovation to its clients with the release of Mumwe, a new product that has the option to share one data pool from multiple connections. The new Mumwe packages enable customers to enjoy being flexible and fixed, both at the same time. It brings an end to multiple data contract subscriptions when customers merely want to use the data they have already purchased using an alternative technology. Paratus Africa Managing Director for Namibia, Andrew Hall, says Mumwe means 'to combine' in Oshiwambo. "We developed the product to combine the data usage pool for one or multiple users. This way, our clients can leverage a cost saving in the process." "The original idea came from offering customers the option of one contract where they have the experience of fast reliable internet using Fiber to the home without having to sign up for multiple data subscriptions when away from home," he explains.

Mumwe clients can, for example, have a single Fiber to the home subscription and access the same data pool using Fixed-LTE or have complete mobility with Mobile-LTE where the network coverage provides for. This also streamlines management of data usage as one merely needs to keep an eye on one centralised data pool instead of multiple data con-tracts. "People have become so reliant on their internet connection that it even goes on holiday with them. We have now introduced a solution that helps our customers avoid signing multiple data contracts. Mumwe is a combined offering that could provide cost savings in the process," he concludes. With Paratus already offering data Top-Up bundles at the lowest price in the Namibian market at N$15 per Gig, customers can now enjoy additional savings with Mumwe. Flamingo World Ocean Day clean up

How the Commonwealth Blue Charter is a beacon of hope for the future of ocean governance To mark World Oceans Day on 8 June, Commonwealth Head of Oceans and Natural Resources Dr Nicholas Hardman-Mountford shares how his organisation's Blue Charter is a beacon of hope for the future of ocean governance.

In the depths of the Pacific Ocean, 11,000 km beneath the sea surface, lies the deepest known point in the Earth's seabed known as the Challenger Deep. On this pitch black patch of the Mariana Trench, temperatures are just above freezing, and the ocean pressure is comparable to a one kilo weight on a single fingernail. Here, just a few weeks ago, undersea explorer Victor Vescovo returned from the deepest ever solo expedition, only to report that he witnessed a plastic bag and candy wrappers, floating glibly on the ocean floor. On this year's Ocean Day, this disturbing find reminds us of two facts. The first is the scale not only of marine pollution, but the plethora of challenges the world faces in terms of ocean health. The second is the incredible opportunity we have to cooperate on a global scale to protect and manage one of our most precious natural resources. A historic step towards united action The Commonwealth covers a third of the world's coastal oceans and nearly half of its coral reefs. The majority of the world's small island developing states (SIDS) are Commonwealth, although they can be more accurately dubbed 'large ocean states' due to their vast oceanic domains or exclusive economic zones. Forty-six out of 53 Commonwealth members have a coastline, and three of the remaining landlocked states border great lakes. For these countries, the ocean is everything – it represents their home, their livelihood, their history, culture, and their future. Yet this future is under unprecedented threats. Global warming is causing ocean heatwaves that bleach kilometres of reefs; foreign trawlers are depleting fish stocks – often illegally; sea level rise is flooding homes and salinising the soil, and plastic junk is polluting waters and beaches while contaminating food supplies. In response, 53 world leaders adopted the Commonwealth Blue Charter in April 2018, unanimously agreeing to actively co-operate to solve ocean-related problems and achieve sustainable ocean development. Progress and milestones To date, 12 countries have stepped forward to lead on nine different topic areas or 'action groups'. These include: Sustainable Aquaculture (led by Cyprus), Sustainable Blue Economy (Kenya), Coral Reef Protection and Restoration (Australia, Belize, Mauritius), Mangrove Restoration (Sri Lanka), Ocean Acidification (New Zealand), Ocean and Climate Change (Fiji), Ocean Observations (Canada), Marine Plastic Pollution (United King-dom, Vanuatu) and Marine Protected Areas (Seychelles). Over 25 countries have signed up to these action groups, and counting. Action-oriented and member-driven, the success of the Blue Charter is dependent on the level of passion or commitment from the countries to set goals, forge partnerships, and mobilise together. We believe this creates deeper and more enduring actions. Key progress made by countries in implementing the Blue Charter includes: · A package worth up to £66.4 million pledged by the UK to fight marine plastic pollution through the Commonwealth Clean Oceans Alliance; · Increased bans or restrictions on single use plastics, with more than 30 Commonwealth countries now taking action on plastic pollution; · Commitments by Seychelles and the UK to protect 30 per cent of their ocean waters by 2020; · The world's largest conference on the sustainable blue economy hosted successfully by Kenya in November 2018, with more than 18,000 registered delegates from 184 countries; · Action group meetings hosted in UK, New Zealand and Canada on marine plastics, ocean acidification and ocean observation, to discuss concrete actions, tools and cooperation under the Blue Charter. We have also received tremendous encouragement from the private and philanthropic sectors, for example: · British supermarket chain Waitrose has donated £500,000 to the Association of Commonwealth Universities to support Blue Charter fellowships for research on marine plastic pollution; · Ocean research organisation Nekton is partnering with the Commonwealth to build ocean scientific research capacity and knowledge in Indian Ocean countries. This includes ground-breaking deep sea exploration in Seychelles waters; · Bloomberg Philanthropies is partnering with the Commonwealth to direct their ocean conservation efforts to support member countries. The first Commonwealth Blue Charter 'All Champs' conference on 18-21 June 2019 will bring together champion countries with international partners to strategise on more concrete actions to address our ocean priorities, and help achieve Sustainable Development Goal 14. The momentum for action is rising, and there is a hope that the Commonwealth Blue Charter will help spur lasting global change towards sustainable ocean governance.

Kate Leeming visits Swakopmund Schools Isaac Chikosi

A professional tennis player, rider and educator Australian Kate Leeming stopped over in Swakopmund to inspire and motivate students. Her mission is aimed at breaking the cycle in Education. According to her blog, “Breaking the Cycle: Education aims to inspire students to lead their schools, communities, countries, and the world in making positive change by utilising Kate's journeys as a source of innovation and creativity.” Leeming's first presentation was at Festus !Gonteb Primary School in the DRC where she met a Grade 7 class. “My talk was a little rushed, but very well-received by the year 7 students”, said Leeming. She further went to visit Mondesa Youth Opportunities (MYO) in Mondesa for a presentation with the Grade 7 and 8 classes before continuing the second half of her fat bike ride across the continent. According to Leeming, “Breaking the Cycle will serve to build on my commitment to contribute towards ending extreme poverty and education. These outreach initiatives support Sustainable Development Goals 1 (No Poverty), 4 (Quality Education) and 5 (Gender Equality) Grade 7 Learners at Festus !Gonteb with Kate Leeming which in turn can positively affect all other SDGs”

Team Up 2 Clean Up

Swakopmund Municipality dedicated to keeping Swakopmund clean Sharlien Tjambari

To keep Swakopmund and its surroundings clean, community based organisations and different churches have joined the Swakopmund Municipality to make Project Shine a success. Project shine which is an initiative by the Swakopmund Municipality is aimed at keeping the town and the main roads clean.

Participants of Project Shine 2017 and 2018 receive their certificates of appreciation from Swakopmudn Municipality

This year marks the 12th year of Project Shine which was inaugurated in 2007. Project Shine is an initiative that invites non-profit organizations to provide their services to clean predetermined areas in and around Swakopmund as well as to raise awareness and to educate the community on the benefits of sustaining the environment in a clean and tidy condition. During the launch of Project Shine 2019 on Wednesday this week the Mayor of Swakopmund Pauline Nashilundo said the Swakopmund Municipality remains committed to retaining the cleanliness of the main road, at first when the project was initiated the main focus was on the main roads between Henties Bay and Swakopmund, Arandis and Swakopmund; and Walvis Bay and Swakopmund but, this has changed and the volunteers have moved to cleaning the beaches as well. This year's sponsors for Project Shine are Namibian Breweries Ltd (Pty), First National Bank, Bannerman Resources, Plastic Packaging and Rent-A-Drum Swakopmund. In total, all sponsors including the Swakopmund Municipality, sponsored N$114 000 for this year. Twelve groups who participated in 2017 and 2018 received their certificated of participation from the Swakopmund Municipality and the winning teams were as follows: for the 2017 winning teams, best group were Hai//on San Group, St Boniface Anglican Church Youth Group and Roman Catholic Mother Cycle Tamariskia. The best groups in 2018 were: at first place, St John Healing Mission, second place Rhenish Church Swakopmund and third place was the Roman Catholic Mother Cycle Tamariskia. This year the group that will participate are, Arobian Football Club DRC, St John Healing Mission Church, Rhenish Church Swakopmund, Hanganeni Primary school, Oruuano Protectant Unity Church, St Joshua Star Church, Solafide Choir and M.P.H.K.K Mehi Rouherero. The group will clean Swakopmund until end of January this year and apply again to participate next year. The Bishop of last year's winning group, Likius Tjivikua said this is a very good initiative by the Swakopmund Municipality and his church have been participating almost every day since the project was launch in Swakopmund. “We do this voluntarily and I must say our members are ploughing back in the community by doing this. I urge all other church groups to participate in keeping our town clean and let us join hand towards the cleanliness of our town”. This year's theme is “Air Pollution”.

This are the new teams who will be keeping the town and its surroundings clean for the next six months

The CEO of Swakopmund Archie Benjamin, Mrs Saas from Namibian Breweries , the Mayor Pauline Nashilundo and the General Manager of Health Services Clive Lawrence receive a cheque of N$80 000

SFC Vikings remain unbeaten Rudi Bowe The SFC Vikings remain unbeaten in the NRU 1st Division. The team defeated Erongo Rugby Academy 77-0 over the weekend at Kudu Park in Narraville in Walvis Bay. The defending champions from Swakopmund showed a classy display of excellent ball handling, composure in the general attack and managed 13 tries. The momentum displayed by Vikings left ERA helpless and the game ended in a whitewash. "We're always happy with a win, but what made this one special is the fact that we set goals for ourselves and the guys were determined as ever to achieve those goals. We never lost focus and stuck to our structures. We have to give credit to the men from Erongo Rugby Academy as they never gave up and kept coming at us throughout the 80 minutes. It was a game played in good spirit where true sportsmanship triumphed, and that's what rugby is all about. As for us, there are always improvements to be made, so we'll hit up the old drawing board and discuss the areas to work on for the play offs." said Jaco Barnard the coach/manager/player of Vikings after the game. The tries were scored by Henning Joubert (1), Andre Strydom (1), Sheiton Besser (2), Martin Barnard (1), Lovelle Delie (1), Dirk von Weidts (1), Lionel Coetzee (3), Kyle Wentzel (1), Jaco Barnard (2), conversions by Dirk von Weidts (3), Kyle Wentzel (3). The SFC Vikings will play in the NRU 1st Division quarter finals on 6 July 2019, with their opponents yet to be determined. The SFC Vikings would like to thank to their main sponsors Castle Lite, Cars & Guides, Reef Break Realtors, Stellenberg Kwik Spar and Camelthorne Freight Forwarding.

Inspired United beat Kudus Rudi Bowe

Kudus suffered their fifth defeat of the Rugby Premier League this season. The team lost 29-17 against Trustco United at Kudus Park.

Lionel Coetzee player of the match

Kudus scored two tries by Daniel Jeneke and scrum-half Cameron Stevens. Aurelio Plato was unsuccessful to convert the two tries, but could bag the points of three successful penalty kicks. United scored four tries. Two by wing Felix Humphries and one each by fly-half Hanreco van Zyl and centre Michael Hummel. Lock Winmar Rust was successful in converting three of the tries and also bagged the points with three penalty kicks. United enjoyed great ball retention in the second half and dominated in the scrums. Kudus to the opposite was plagued by unforced errors. A total of 33 penalties were handed down by the referee. Of those a total of 17 were against Kudus. Kudus coach Romeo Rieth expressed concerns over the low turnout of players for practice. That resulted among others in no depth of players on the bench. The team did not play any games for three weeks and he attributed that to the low turnout at practises. Kudus’ next game is against Unam in Windhoek. The coach urged players to prepare and work hard for this upcoming game. Coach Robbie Dickson had reasons to smile. His Trustco United remains top of the log and stays ahead with several points. Dickson was not happy all the way though. "I don't think it was the best first half. Players struggled to get out of the starting blocks with the game. They

were lazy on the defence and made poor decisions. We missed eleven points, but the second half was a comeback we much welcomed. The forwards overwhelmed Kudus and we could keep up the momentum. Dickson admitted it is very difficult to play Kudus at Narraville, as home ground always pose that extra advantage. It was United’s first win at Kudus Park since 2014. Dickson added there are some challenges lying ahead for Trustco United. Firstly there is the injuries and secondly players who have been selected for Uruguay and for the Welwitschias. The second team of Kudus beat United II 25-29 in the NRU Reserve League that was also played at Kudu Park.

Grading exercise at RCFA Academy Rudi Bowe

The Namibia RCFA Kickboxing Academy held their second kickboxing grading exercise at their club in Walvis Bay. The kickboxing grading exercise was held to determine how students progress throughout the year. Belt grading systems are used by kickboxing academies as a way to both inspire and demonstrate a student's advancement in the sport. The beginner's kickboxing belt is given to the trainee as soon as he or she enrols in the academy. The student needs to perform all required tasks and pass a number of tests and drills to earn the next colour or grade. The challenges and requirements depend on the kickboxing academy. Some institutions also have levels within each grade. These show how

much the trainee improved through the phases until he's ready to move on to the next grade. There are corresponding exercises, requirements, sparring matches and tests along the course to ensure that the trainee is wellequipped and is competent enough for the belt the trainee is wearing. Forty students took part in the grading exercise, after which all students received a certificate and a new coloured belt, and walked out proud as champions in their own right, with the youngest student only six years old. The Namibia RCFA Kickboxing Academy has very high standards and the club is producing champions and maintaining exceptional standards.

The support from parents at the event was phenomenal and students inspired other youngsters to get more people involved in the sport. Throughout the event it became clear that the trademark of a true champion is to stay humble. The students that graded are: RED I Abiater William Alessando Hendricks Ashwin Bezuidenhout Carlito Noble Daniel Asmundsson Jelico Johannes JP van Zyl Kelsey Miljo Marlene Engelbrecht Mason Theron Monnic Delport Tharina de Jager RED II Aaron Mouton Ane Visser

Namibia ICC T20 African Champions Rudi Bowe

Namibia participated in The ICC T20 World Cup Africa Finals which was hosted in Uganda. Even though Evergreen Uganda was blessed with rain during the tournament Cricket Namibia came in victorious and walked away with the trophy. It was expected that the conditions would be a major challenge for the squad, but they adapted very well to the low wickets they played on and the tough outfields. Playing against Kenya was one of the biggest games we were all looking forward to, it would have been a good game to watch and for the players to experience as Kenya gained ODI status way before Namibia did. It was unforunate that the rain did not make it possible for The Squad to play against Kenya and Nigeria. The Eagles built up a lot of momentum over the last few months and

had the confidence of beating any team at the tournament, so it would have been nice to play and win the gold medal resoundingly. It was a disappointing campaign for the Cricket Cranes as they had the advantage of playing on their home ground and they did not perform well in a format they thought they are good at – Twenty20. Uganda was a lovely host. It was, how-ever, a shame that the tournament was interrupted badly by rain which affected 50% of matches. Head Coach, Pierre de Bruyn was pleased with the game played against Botswana and he says that it was “key” for him and that the team thrives on the fact that if they want to beat teams, then

they beat them convinc i n g l y. T h e m a t c h played against Botswana was ruthless and lasted only for 36 minutes. This was a great platform for The Eagles to send out a message not just in Africa, but in world cricket that Namibia wants to compete very well against any team. Cricket Namibia set goals in April to get ODI status and perhaps qualify in top 4 and we won the tournament against big teams such as PNG, Hong Kong, Canada and the USA. Namibia is now set to participate in the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier in Dubai and it will be a challenge for The Eagles. The Captain says that they will regroup and build up a new momentum when

The Namibian National Cricket team the new season starts, with their first ODI tour to the USA in September and then hopefully be in a good space to achieve more great things in the T20 qualifiers in November. He says that the team will take it step-bystep, continue to improve and play consistent cricket. Playing in Dubai will not be easy, all players will need to be aware of what is required to play in the T20 World Cup, im-

prove their skills and put in the extra effort to get one of the 4 spots in the last 6 teams. There is an opportunity for Cricket Namibia to stake a claim and for young men to announce themselves on the world team which could open doors for our cricket players. The biggest contribution to Cricket Namibia winning in the tournament held in Uganda is that the team was well prepared and

that is what put The Eagles apart from the other teams. Cricket Namibia has been working hard to achieve what we have gained thus far and the wins in every game we play are the manifestation of the talent Namibia has. “We will win games, lose games but we will always have room for improvement” The National team, Stephen Julian Baard, Danie Van Schoor, Jan

Izak de Villiers, Merwe Erasmus (Captain), Jan Nicolaas Frylinck (Vice-captain), Zane Green, Zhivago Groenewald, Nikolaas Davin, Tangeni Lungameni, Bernard Scholtz, Johannes Jonathan Smit, Christoffel Viljoen, Karl Birkenstock, HelaoYa France, Pierre de Bruyn (Coach) by Albie Morkel (Assistant Coach) and Dee Thakur (manager).

SSS dominates first coastal FNB Classic Clash Eileen van der Schyff

Swakopmund Secondary School (SSS), the hosts of the first coastal FNB Classic Clash, stunned their rivals, Coastal High School with a spectacular 4 -0 held on 3 June at the Veneta Sports Fields in Swakopmund. SSS dominated the match from the start by keeping the visiting side's goalkeeper busy at the

goal post. Coastal High School's goalkeeper made a save in the early minutes of the game, denying Pinkie Gaingob a corner kick. SSS continued to put pressure which resulted in Pinkie scoring his first and opening goal of the match. Pinkie managed to score three more goals for SSS. Micheal van Wyk from SSS was crowned Classic Clash Hero. Pinkie Gaingob was the obvious choice and crowned as the FNB Classic Clash Man of the Match.
