Walvis Bay and Ponte-Noire, the second largest city in the Republic of Congo, entered into an intermunicipal agreement this week, coinciding with an official visit by the mayor of Pointe-Noire, Jean Francois Kando and his delegation.

A Spanish fishing vessel captain who shot and killed a seal at sea in January this year during fishing operations was fined a total of N$25 000 or two years imprisonment in the Walvis Bay magistrates court on Wednesday. Rey Manuel Insua was fined N$10 000 (or one year imprisonment) for transgressing the Arms and Ammunition Act. He was fined a further N$15 000 (or one year imprisonment) for killing a seal with a method not prescribed by the Marine Resources Act. A fisheries observer aboard the vessel, Carolina Castro, filed the complaint against Insua after a crew man onboard reported his conduct.

The two cities are now officially proclaimed as friendship cities. The aim of the exchange visits is to establish common interests as well as see how we can build an inter-city cooperation for the benefit of our communities.

Walvis Bay, Pointe-Noire proclaimed as friendship cities Rudi Bowe

Mayor of Pointe-Noire in The Republic of Congo (TRC), Jean Francois Kando and his delegation was on a two day familiarization visit in Walvis Bay after the two cities signed an inter-municipal relationship agreement earlier in the year. The agreement was signed when a delegation comprising of the Mayor of Walvis Bay, Alderman Immanuel Wilfried, The Chairperson of the Management Committee, Cllr Lilo Niilenge, and the Public Relations and Customer Service Manager, Kevin Adams, visited Pointe-Noire. The two cities are now officially proclaimed as friendship cities. The aim of the exchange visits is to establish common interests as well as see how we can build an inter-city cooperation for the benefit of our communities. The agreement was made official by Walvis Bay Mayor Alderman Immanuel Wilfried, and Kandjo Jean Francois, Mayor and Parliamentarian from Pointe-Noire, during the latter's four-day visit at the harbour town. Mayor Jean Francois Kando who was speaking through an interpreter said that the agreement is within the cooperation frameworks that exist between Namibia and TRC as this relationship predates even before Namibia's independence and that the relationship that will establish between the two towns will be mutually beneficial. Walvis Bay Mayor Alderman Immanuel Wilfried said “Through this friendship agreement, the Municipality of Walvis Bay hopes that the prospects of investment opportunities can be created for the mutual benefit of both municipalities. Wilfried added that Namibia and the TRC have a very long history and that the signing of the agreement with Pointe-Noire will allow both municipalities to foster and strengthen the relationship further. It is indeed important that good relations with various countries be established because often we share the same challenges and sharing plans can accelerate growth and development in our respective countries,” he added. These types of agreements will encourage local businesses and organisations to start engaging with counterparts in these countries to obtain the necessary benefits. The Pointe-Noire delegation visited the Walvis Bay informal markets, a local fish factory, Walvis Bay Salt Refiners, Sandwich Harbour, Pelican Point, the Projects of the Municipality of Walvis Bay in the townships and Namport before their departure to Windhoek today.

Erongo Marine Empowers Young Leaders As part of its ongoing mission to empower, equip and transform, Erongo Marine Enterprises (EME) sponsored ten young leaders, including five students from Namibia's leading Universities, to participate in the Young Professionals Leadership Development Conference which took place in Four of the sponsored youth included interns at the company. The aim of the two-day conference was to encourage and inspire young professionals, help them find inspiration and gain knowledge from established leaders and from each other. Benguela Training Consultants and event coordinator Samuel Mocumi said “We wanted to charge each and every attending young professional to be a change agent and understand how success in leadership is underpinned by determination and emotional resilience; make it clear that limits only exist in their minds”. The conference included presentations by six local industry experts and one motivational speaker from South Africa, Stef du Plessis, a thought leader on employee and workplace culture. “If you are a young leader, you have energy. You bring new ideas and a fresh perspective to the table. You have a lot of potential” Stef du Plessis said. Managing Director of EME Dr Martha Uumati said “At Erongo Marine Enterprises we want to make sure that we nurture young leadership potential and saw this as a golden opportunity to afford these ten individuals the opportunity to take part in such a great event”. Dr Uumati added that this is testimony to the company's commitment to convert its

fishing rights into broadbased social upliftment coordinated through its social development trust, the Arechanab Community Trust. The participants sponsored by EME included C h r i s t i n e v a n Wy k (NUST SRC Member), Kudzai Sibanda (UNAM SRC President), Epaphras Angolo (IUM SRC President), Marvellous Shilongo (NUST SRC Former President) and Simon Petrus, a student at the Windhoek Vocational Training Centre whose studies are also sponsored by the company. EME interns included Orlanda Kambindangolo, Tareree Kaura, Tonateni Shaketange and Joram Shifa. Six of the ten sponsored participants were females. “I wish to thank EME for affording me the meaningful experience and contributing towards my development as an individual both on a personal and corporate level. The conference was very informative and had a major impact on my perceptions and creating a positive workspace for myself and my colleagues all around,” said Christene van Wyk from NUST about her experience. EME intern Tareree Kaura said the following in relation her experience of the conference: “I was empowered when Mr Stef du Plessis said: 'when you expect more of people they show up, but the moment you expect less from them they do not turn up. This is something that struck me because, here I am and Erongo Marine is believing and investing in me ”. Kaura added that the

conference was an enormous opportunity that offered inspiration and a foundation for improving oneself for excellence in one's chosen career. “My take was that to be a leader for tomorrow we must adopt leadership in our daily lifestyle. I learned much about being resilient at my workplace, treating problems as a learning process and taking positive action in the face of adversity” Kaura said. An intern at EME Orlanda Kambindangolo said “This leadership conference brought nourishment into my life because it encouraged, motivated, and inspired me to be a better person”. “As a leader, when you make a commitment you create hope, but when you keep a commitment you create trust” Kambindangolo added. An intern at EME Tonateni Shaketange, offered here advice which she has taken from the conference. Shaketange said “We are not separated by our differences but by our ignorance. If you want to be a transformational leader you have to learn. As a leader your behaviour and attitude influences multitudes”. “It is our behaviour in the workplace that creates unwritten ground rules, which are people's perception that this is how we do things around here. As a leader learn to influence others in a way that it will change their lives in a positive way” Shaketange added. EME intern Joram Shifa said “In order to be a transformational leader, you have to be culturally

Shifa added “We should influence culture in our domain so that we craft positive UGRs that promote perfection of our work and deliver excel-

lence”. Shifa added that on personal branding as a leadership strategy, he has learnt to let go of his fear by striving towards empowering others, inspiring them and equipping them in order to gain influence that will one day enable his follower(s) to buy into his vision and to do the right

thing even when no one is watching. Other speakers at the conference included Albert Khevare, mentor, coach and HR Business Partner at NAMCOR, as well as five outstanding female leaders including Liezl Davies, the first female Operations Manager at Rössing Uranium; Mercy M Situmbeko, Head of the Vocational Training

Container terminal brings host of new opportunities Walvis Bay Corridor Group Acting CEO, Mr Clive Smith says the new container terminal, which was recently inaugurated at the Port of Walvis Bay, brings with it a host of opportunities for the industry. “Apart from the added capacity, which allows the port to increase its efficiencies and allow Namibia to attract more business, the old container terminal now provides opportunities for private sector to partner with Namport in their quest to develop a dedicated Breakbulk Terminal facility”. According to Namport commercial executive, Tino !Hanabeb, plans for the old container terminal include the bagging of fertilisers and mining chemicals in the port. “Having these processing facilities will help balance the loads to and from the Copperbelt”. Namport director Ms Nangula Hamunyela

stated that Namport has several projects in the pipeline, which will require significant financial investment. “It is a reality that our own financial resources and those of our shareholder are finite, and we should focus on innovative and smart partnerships with the providers of capital and the private sector to realise that these projects of national importance must continue.” She further stated that there will also be investment prospects in projects such as a new car terminal and a logistics centre as well as the development of a Walvis Bay Waterfront.

World Teachers Day celebrated World Teacher's Day was celebrated recently under the theme: “Young Teachers – the future of the profession”. The main event, attended by teachers of several schools in the Erongo Region took place on Saturday at the Narraville sports stadium with the Acting Minister of Education, Arts and Culture, Martin Andjaba, who delivered the keynote address. According to Andjaba, although teachers are still highly regarded in every society, there is a need to restore the profession. Teachers are too easily blamed for shortcomings in the education system or for the performance of an individual school or individual learner. Often blame is shifted with parents, learners and the wider commu-nities not taking up the responsibility to act as partners along with teachers in the education of their children. “Reflecting on the role of teachers, you will agree with me that teachers were once regarded by learners, parents and communities as highly respected professionals, valued, trusted and accepted as inspirational role models for you people. I must say that indeed this might be the case, however, you will also agree with

me there is a need for us to fully restore the teaching profession. It is true that teachers nowadays are easily blamed and singled out as major contributors towards the failures of education systems across the world. The traditional role known to us of a teacher has changed and more and more challenges are faced, inside and beyond the classroom. Andjaba views the biggest importance of younger generation teachers to continue to improve the overall system through innovation and new thinking. He called upon the more senior ranks to support the younger ranks and to assist sharing their knowledge and experience. According to the Acting Minister, the responsibility of principals and teachers are multiple. There is the responsibility to take care of schools' physical infrastructure and internal systems. There is the responsibility to raise the bar to improve the quality of teaching

and to improve grades. There is also the responsibility to enhance the impact every school have on the learner. “In terms of being accountable, I urge all principals to take a principled stance against any form of decay in their schools: be it moral decay or decline of values or allowing the deterioration, misuse or control of state property or state funds in our schools. Remember, that the school's image and environment is a reflection on your personal and leadership abilities. The Deputy Minister in his address extended a word of appreciation to every teacher for their efforts in the upkeep and further enhancement of Namibia's education system. Note: latest statistics given by Andjaba show Namibia currently has 30 894 teachers, serving in 1897 schools throughout the country. The country has a total 781 380 learners.

The group also donated food to Sunshine kids and assisted with a soup kitchen at Home away from Home. Communication Officer of the Municipality of Walvis Bay who received the goods on behalf of the Office of the Mayor Ms Anita Kaihiva said that the Municipality are thankful for the goods and assure the young man that the goods will be handed to the persons that it is attended for. Kaihiva added that the Office of the Mayor are all ways open for donations. The next project that the group will take on is for a girl from Rehoboth that need N$400 000 for a ear operation. The girl will lose her hearing and speech if she does not go for the operation. The group helped a few girls from De Duine Secondary School with their outfits and a ride to their grade twelve farewell recently held in town.

Tullow Oil invests in future engineers and scientists Last week Tullow Oil, the British Oil Exploration Company, donated 18 high-end laptops worth N$180,000 to the Mondesa Youth Opportunities (MYO) and Gqaina Primary School, with the assistance of Manica Group Namibia.

Peter Owens (Tullow) with Neels Strijdom and Frans Ndjahera and students from MYO

Notice is hereby given in terms of section 63(2) of the Local Authorities Act, 1992 (Act 23/1992), as amended, that the Council of Walvis Bay intends to lease by private transaction the entire top floor of the Municipal Office Buildings located in the suburb of Narraville, Walvis Bay to the Namibia University of Science and Technology for the purposes of conducting a Satellite Campus.

The laptops were used by Tullow's drilling team based in Walvis Bay and on the Ocean Rig Poseidon drillship during the Cormorant-1 drilling campaign last year and Tullow took the opportunity to donate the computers to the two schools to further the education of young Namibians. Peter Owens, the Country Manager for Tullow Oil, handed over the laptops to both institutions. He told the learners that education is the key to a brighter future and encouraged the learners to work hard and to strive to be pillars in their communities as they are the future leaders of the country with the responsibility of uplifting fellow Namibians. “This donation is part of Tullow's Shared Prosperity drive which focusses on developing peoples' skills to increase local content and build a supply chain to deliver shared infrastructure and to support local communities”, said Owens. Neels Strijdom of MYO gave the delegation of Tullow and Manica a brief tour of the MYO facilities and classes. He said that the Mondesa Youth Opportunities is a non-profit Trust which offers free intensive education for about 120 underprivileged learners who show ability and promise. They focus largely on academics (English, Maths and Reading), but also offer Music, Computer Skills Training and Life Skills. MYO offers learners a nourishing lunch, before starting with afternoon classes to complement their

usual school curriculum. The Tullow and Manica delegation was treated to a special traditional dance by the Gqaina Primary School during their handover event. This school is located 90km from the nearest town (Gobabis) and is a boarding school for about 300 children. The school was founded by local farmers, to ensure that Bushmen children in the surrounding area receive formal education. Gqaina is one of the few schools that promote indigenous language use and they employ teachers who speak the Ju'hansi language and provide mother tongue education for Ju'hansi learners in Grade 1. Owens urged the learners to make use of the oppotunities presented to them and to work hard. “We would like to see the future engineers and scientist emerge from the local community and perhaps work for Tullow one day. Maybe some of you could be our future drilling engineers,” he said. Manica also assisted Tullow Oil to donate the 17½ drillbit used in the Cormorant-1 well to the Ministry of Mines and Energy for display in the Ministry's museum in Windhoek. The drill-bit weighing 690 kg was transported to Windhoek where it was sand-blasted before delivery to the Ministry.

The rental shall be as follows, all amounts excluding 15% VAT: (I) From 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020 at N$ 10,285.00 per month (N$55.90/m²).

Sieht sie nicht aus wie ein großer Kohlrabi, knapp 60 cm im Durchmesser?! Präsentiert auf dem Felsen wie auf einem Tablett zum gegessen werden? Tatsächlich wächst diese Pflanze auf felsigem Untergrund und holt sich die Nahrung/das Wasser über eine Wurzel, die in eine schmale Gesteinsspalte reicht.

Sein Verbreitungsgebiet erstreckt sich vom ganz südlichen Angola durch das Kaokofeld bis hinunter in die Naukluft-

In zwei Teilen können Sie hier die lustige Kurzgeschichte von Ingrid Kubisch lesen, die auch in der neusten Felsgraffiti erschienen ist: Teil 1 „Pickel sind für Selbstmord!“, weinte ich. Ausgerechnet am allerersten Schultag in Standard 6, an der Windhoek Hoërskool 1968, stand mir ein solches Ungetüm im Gesicht. Ich sehe noch Mamas entgeisterten Blick, als ich dieses jammerte. “Alle Dreizehnjährigen haben Pickel”, tröstete sie. “Karin hat keine!”, schluchzte ich und warf meiner Zwillingsschwester böse Blicke zu. Sie hatte eine Haut so glatt wie ein Babypopo. Schwarze Schoko “Nun reiß dich zusammen und drück nicht dran ‘rum!” Zögernd verließen wir das Auto vor der W.H. S., der Hochschule, die wir für die nächsten sieben Jahre besuchen würden, und ließen unsere Augen über die vielen Kinder und das Schulgebäude wandern. Das Schulwappen, der Kudu vor blauem Hintergrund mit dem Motto Virtus Floreat, hing prominent an der großen Wand. Wir hatten keine Ahnung was das bedeutete und es interessierte uns auch nicht die Bohne. Wir waren so gekleidet wie alle anderen Mädchen auch - puderblaues Trägerkleid, mit weißer kurzärmeliger Bluse darunter und einen dunkelblauen gestrickten Gürtel mit gefransten Enden, der mit Schlipsknoten an der linken Seite in der Taille zu binden war,

beide Teile gleich lang und nicht über den Saum hängend. Die Saumlänge des Kleides nach Spezifikation der Schultracht, nicht kürzer oder länger als 4 Zoll in kniender Stellung vom Boden. Alle sahen gleich aus nur ich nicht. Just in der Rinne neben dem linken Nasenflügel hatte der Pickel sich eingenistet. Mit rotem Hof um die gelbe noch unreife Haube. Bei jedem Wort, bei jedem Lachen oder in meinem Fall, Weinen, spannte, brannte und juckte er. Die Prefekte, einige der älteren Schüler, die sich in ihrer Schullaufbahn durch gutes Benehmen und ebensolche Noten ausgezeichnet hatten und deswegen Aufsicht führen durften, hielten Ausschau nach uns Neuankömmlingen und zeigten uns den Weg in den Skoolsaal, der damals auch als Turnhalle verwendet wurde. Hunderte Kinder standen in der Aula, die Jungen links, die Mädels rechts - die Lehrer saßen oben auf der Empore und der Schulleiter stand an seinem Podium davor. Ich hielt mein Taschentuch über den Pickel. Meneer Beukes sah schon von weitem streng aus und ich war mir sicher, dass er den Pickel genauso missbilligend betrachten würde wie einen Fettfleck auf dem Schulkleid. Es war uns schon

bekannt, dass er seine Schüler zu maßregeln pflegte, wenn sie die Respektlosigkeit besaßen, mit schmuddeliger Schultracht, offenen Schuhen oder ungekämmten Haaren seine Schule zu betreten. Mit ihm war nicht zu spaßen. Seine funkelnden Brillengläser und die glänzende Halbglatze, die ausschließlich in meine Richtung zu funkeln und zu glänzen schienen, bewirkten eine

rasante Verschlimmerung meines Zustands. Das Ungetüm am Nasenflügel schwoll von Sekunde zu Sekunde an. Jetzt wächst es und wird mein Gesicht mit einer heißen feuerroten eitergelben Geschwulst überwuchern. Hilfesuchend wandte ich mich an meine Schwester, aber die war gar nicht da! - Die nachströmende Schülerschar hatte uns getrennt. Ich blickte einem fremden

Mädchen ins Gesicht ein Gesicht mit großen braunen Augen und ohne einen einzigen Pickel. „O dônder!“, rief sie, als sie den für eine Sekunde ungeschützten Pickel erblickte, „dis ‘n lelike ding, daardie!“ Ihre Stimme erklang klar und hell in das erwartungsvolle Schweigen der Schüler. Sofort richteten sich die strafend fun-

kelnden Augengläser des Skoolhoofs in unsere Richtung. Der Pickel schwoll zu Ausmaßen an, die einem Skorpionstich alle Ehre gemacht hätten, und das Mädchen neben mir verwandelte sich vor Schreck über ihren verbalen Ausbruch von einem fröhlichen Spatzen in eine kleine graue Maus....

An der Atlantikküste,in der Namibwüste Locker vom Hocker Leserbrief zum Locker-Kommentar: Kluge Klima-Kinder? “Darf es auch mal gut sein?” Sehr geehrte Frau Kinghorn, Eigentlich bin ich mir noch nicht ganz sicher, ob ich dieses Schreiben an Sie überhaupt senden soll und darf. Ihre Berichte und Kommentare in der Namib Times lese ich immer sehr gerne. Schon des Öfteren habe ich den Gedanken gehabt, auf diesen oder jenen Bericht in der Zeitung zu antworten, aber dann habe ich mich zurückgehalten, weil ich mir gedacht habe: “Wer, außer ein paar Deutschsprachigen hier in Namibia, liest denn das und wen interessiert denn das überhaupt. Über den Bericht von Ihnen über die ovambosprechende Dame, die Ihnen in Kapstadt so entgegenkam, möchte ich nur sagen, dass ich i m v e rg a n g e n e n Monat eine ähnlich angenehme Erfahrung machen konnte. Ich war bei Natis um meine Autolizenz zu erneuern und ging in das Zahlungsbüro, fand aber keine richtige

Reihe, wo ich mich hätte anstellen können und stand wohl etwas dumm herum. Als ich mich dann aber doch hinter eine Gruppe Männer stellte, die wohl das Gleiche vorhatten, fragte mich ein damarasprechender Mann, ob ich denn schon so ein kleines Zettelchen mit einer Nummer geholt hätte Das war mir neu, und ich fragte ihn, wo ich die bekäme. Er antwortete, dass ich um das Gebäude herum gehen müsste, um mir dort diesen Wisch zu holen. Er muss wohl mein verdutztes Gesicht gesehen haben, als er zu einem jungen Mann sagte, er solle mir sein Zettelchen geben und ein anderes holen. Dadurch konnte ich

meine Lizenz in ein paar Minuten bezahlen, wofür ich ein paarmal dankte. So kann man auch hier bei uns Positives erleben, und ich stimme mit Ihnen überein, dass wir jeden Tag genug Negatives hören . M i t f re u n d l i c h e n Grüßen, Ihr Swakopmunder Senior (Name ist der Namib Times bekannt, wird auf Wunsch jedoch nicht der Öffentlichkeit preisgegeben) Lieber Swakopmunder Senior, ich danke Ihnen für diese positiven Gedanken, die schon dann etwas bewirken können, wenn nur eine Handvoll Menschen

sie lesen und sich zu Herzen nehmen. Jeder gute Gedanke, der geäußert wird - und wenn er noch so unbedeutend zu sein scheint ist eine Energie, die in den Äther geschickt wird und irgendwo seine Wirkung zeigt. Ihre Susann Kinghorn

Liebe Küstenleser! Seit einem guten Jahr gibt es einen neuen Star am Horizont, den die Gnuherde Mensch weltweit anhimmelt wie eine Göttin. Greta Thunberg bzw. Gretawill-gern-tun-aber-tutnicht-gut, ein 16jähriges Mädchen aus Schweden, meint, die Welt verändern zu können, indem sie freitags die Schule schwänzt, um ein Schild in die Hand zu nehmen, das da ankündigt: “Schulstreik fürs Klima!” Wenn Greta (bzw. die, die hinter ihr stecken!) es bisher auch nicht geschafft hat, den Konsum und die Profitgier der Spezies homo sapiens zu drosseln bzw. dieser Spezies klarzumachen, dass sie sich nicht mehr auf Kosten unserer kostbaren Umwelt karnickelartig vermehren sollte (das Faktum umweltschädlicher Bevölkerungsexplosion hat sie nämlich bisher mit keinem Wort erwähnt!), so ist es ihr zumindest gelungen, dass pubertierende Rotzgören wie meine 15jährige Nichte ihre Großeltern anschnauzt und ihnen vorwirft, dass sie ihrer jungen Generation eine verschandelte Umwelt hinterlassen haben. Wow, das ist nogall häwie, zumal gerade meine Eltern sehr viel bescheidener gelebt haben, als es heute der Fall ist, wo sich just bei einer gewissen Jugend ein erschreckender Güterverschleiss und eine an Fassungslosigkeit grenzende, dreiste Selbstverständlichkeit breit macht. Greta Thunberg geht freitags nicht zur Schule, um gegen etwas zu streiken, von dem sie selbst nicht genau weiss, was es ist (es kursieren genug Videoclips im Internet, die zeigen, dass unsere “Klimaexpertin” ma net kein kluh hat, wenn sie mit unerwarteten Fragen bombardiert wird). Wie viele Kinder in dieser Welt träumen hingegen von einer Schule und würden ihr letztes Hemd dafür ausziehen, um das Vorrecht einer Ausbildung genießen zu dürfen. Greta gehört zu den etwa 1% der privilegiertesten Menschen, die je diesen Planeten

bevölkert haben. Sie und ihre Artgenossen haben mehr Komfort, Rechtssicherheit, gesunde Ernährung, Reise- und Konsummöglichkeiten, medizinische Versorgung u.a. als jede Generation davor und etwa 95% der heutigen Weltbevölkerung. Und noch nie in der Geschichte der Menschheit gab es irgendwo so viele kostspielige effiziente und flächendeckende Umweltschutzmaßnah-

Testimony: Mr Ngosso made my enemies confess to what they had done to me. Esther (Swakop) first heard of Mr Ngosso on a community radio talk show: I took his number down and booked an appointment. He charged N$ 200.00 to read my fortune. I was shocked when he mentioned that my husband was involved with another woman which I could not believe and he showed me all the bad spell she had done to me in the mirror and I was shocked. I have lived for 20 years with unhappiness in my marriage until now, Mr Ngosso cast a spell and the other woman separated from my husband and she later confessed to me. Today we live a happy life with respect and no fighting afer Mr Ngosso binded him to me. I recommend him to others who are suffering and I regard him as my guide. My husband has been to him and his business has been improved. We both agreed to go public so that the people get to know Mr Ngosso this is the only way I can pay him back, I think he has been sent by God. Appointment number: 081 552 3053

JJD for GBV Knockout Project Rudi Bowe

Walvis Bay businessman Johnny Johnson Doeseb will fight against Job Ampundain the MTC Knockout Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Knockout boxing project for the Junior Middleweight title at Windhoek Country Club tomorrow evening. Namibian male personalities will battle it out against each other over three rounds each at the event that is not only a boxing fight, but also a fight against social change with the emphasis GBV. Doeseb said that women and children are mostly the victims of GBV and hence urged men to change their attitude and become the protectors of society as women and children are part of us and we need to protect them. We as men do not have any rights to use violence as a means of letting go our frustrations. JJD said “Violence has no place in our society and tomorrow 12 October the public should expect fireworks when he and Amupanda go toe-totoe”. “We all must make sure that GBV becomes a thing of the past whenever you are angered, it must not be directed to women and children as they are not our punching bags” JJD added. The personalities will be throwing punches over a total of 24 rounds on the night. These punches must never land on helpless and vulnerable women and children but rather on a punching bag. All proceeds of the GBV knockout project will be donated to a charity against GBV of their choice. The much-anticipated fights are: KP Illest vs Paul da Prince (MTC Knockout GBV Jnr Middleweight title) Jossy Joss vs Amos Shiyuka (MTC Knockout GBV Heavyweight title) D-Naff vs Luis Munana (MTC Knockout GBV Cruiserweight title) Theo Ishuna vs Marco Ndlovu (MTC Knockout GBV Heavyweight title) DJ Cheeze vs Sunny Boy (MTC Knockout GBV Super Middleweight title) Johnny Johnson Doeseb vs Job Ampunda (MTC Knockout GBV Jnr Middleweight title).

A total of 16 athletes including Bradley Murere and Johanna Benson from the coast are part of the elite team preparing for Dubai. Michael Hamukwaya secretary general and para-athlete coach says he is grateful to the Dome's Health and Wellness Centre for availing their state-of-the-art gym for the training. “We are also grateful to Nampower and the Namibian National Olympic committee for funding the training camp”, said Hamukwaya. “Swakopmund Municipality has also been generous by giving us discounted rates for accommodation at their bungalows”, he added.Nampower sponsored N$147 000 for the training camp.A further N$612 000 was allocated for the World Championships event by Nampower through the Disability Sport Namibia organisation. “To qualify for the 2020 Para Olympic Games in Tokyo, the athletes need to be in the top four at the World Championships for an automatic spot for the Tokyo Games. That is why the World Championships in Dubai are important for the athletes” Hamukwaya said. According to Hamukwaya, the team has secured accommodation in Dubai however, they are still struggling with air tickets and the competition fee of 800 Euros per athlete. Hamukwaya appealed to well-wishers and corporate to support the team wherever they can in this regard.
