N$1,2 billion road building projects in the coastal region completed by October 2019 Sharlien Tjambari The construction of all three major roads in the central coastal region are expected to conclude by October 2019, according to the CEO of the Roads Authority, Mr. Conrad Lutombi. Lutombi paid site visits to the MR 44 (the road behind the dunes between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund), the MR 36 (Swakopmund to Henties Bay) and the TR2/1 (Henties Bay to Uis) on Friday and expressed his satisfaction with progress with the projects which in total has a price tag of over N$1 billion. “I am very impressed and happy with the progress made by the contractors. There has been a great improvement since the last visit from the Minister (of Transport). I must also say, last year we had issues of outstanding invoices and I am happy that we do not have the same problem this year”, said Lutombi during one of the site visits. Lutombi further said that the MR36 and TR2/1 are key road projects as it will raise the profile of the port of Walvis Bay as a key port linked by well developed networks

with markets in all of Namibia’s neighbouring countries and even the Democratic Republic of Congo. Lutombi admitted the construction of the MR36 was challenging. With all difficulties over now, he looks forward to the completion of the road and expectations the road will also increase the influx of tourists to Henties Bay and the hinterland as it would make towns like Uis, Khorixas and Kamanjab more accessible from the coast. Wolfgang Hundemer, the engineer in charge of the construction of the Mr36, confirmed there are some of the sections of the road which are completed and open. He further said in about four weeks, the Henties Bay bypass will be open for use. In briefing Lutombi, Hundemer explained the only challenge they have is funding. “We only have 150 million on the new budget and so far we have spent N$208 million. Completion

is at the 45% mark”. Heiko Klink the engineer for VKE Namibia Consulting, who is in charge of the MR44 and MR52, confirmed the Swakopmund MR52 interchange is almost complete and they have started with the surfacing of the road. Construction of the road bridge over the Swakop River is in full swing. The costs involved in the MR44 road and the Swakopmund interchange is N$969 million. The MR44 road will have three bridges. Lutombi added that detailed designs for the B2 upgrade are ready and the upgrade of the B2 main road will commence as soon as Roads Authority gets funding. “This project is part of the Harambee Prosperity Plan and it is vital that we complete it too without delay”. All projects (excluding B2) are expected to be completed by October 2019. Albeit, that no delays occur. In the meantime, Lutombi also called on all road users to Continues on page 2

However, our good roads are not good if we do not change our attitude when we are driving. I must say that once the MR44 is completed, the heavy goods vehicles will be recommended to use this road. It would therefore divert heavy vehicle traffic from the B2 coastal road between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay”, explained Lutombi.

The trophy is reserved for a sports teams or individuals who show commitment and resilience.” Mathe added that they found it befitting to rename and award the trophy to Tulonga Neputa because of her heroism. She also received a fully paid weekend for two at the Popa Falls Resort, including plane tickets and pocket money from the Namibia Wildlife Resorts. Tulonga Neputa said on Saturday after receiving the award, she felt blessed and honoured to receive the award as the she did this to save Dex Geiger and not for the fame and fortune. Tulonga said: “I would like to thank everyone for their blessings and kind words”.She also thanked the SoE's for the awards.

PRESS RELEASE:

BoN, Nampol investigate 'investment' schemes The Bank of Namibia (BoN) has warned the public against participating in dodgy investment schemes, which it said are “ i n c re a s i n g l y becoming popular in Namibia on social media and other online platforms”. BoN said it and the Namibian Police were investigating a number of suspected illegal financial schemes and would reveal the outcome once the investigations were completed. In a statement on T h u r s d a y, t h e BoN emphasised that the taking of deposits from the public without authorisation from the central bank is prohibited in terms of section 5 of the Banking Institutions Act of 1998. “The Bank of Namibia cautions and urges members of the public to refrain from conducting and /or participating in illegal deposittaking activities that are currently operating in Namibia. “The country has of late seen an increase of online and offline financial schemes, which ask members to 'invest' their money with promises of high returns.” It emphasised that these socalled investment schemes were not authorised by the central bank to take public deposits or to conduct business. “The business involves an investment scheme whereby members are promised high returns within a very short

period of time,” said the bank. These schemes achieve rapid growth of membership through promotional messages via

social media platforms, most commonly WhatsApp groups, the central bank statement read. “The business does not sell any products

but the principal feature of the business is a financial scheme, which involves enticing members of the public to invest and

enjoy high returns,” the central bank further said of the features of these illegal schemes. It warned anybody involved in such

business activities without authorisation to stop immediately. “The bank is empowered to take action

against members of the public who participate in illegal financial schemes,” the central bank said.

Youth Speak out on Shebeens As Walvis Bay constituency youth forum chairman, I'm totally surprised by the Municipalities of major towns giving shebeen trading licences to people, particularly towns like Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. The situation is totally out of hand, it creates alot of havoc. Crime increased, as those leaving bars at night become victims of muggers. There is a big problem with public urination, as it creates health hazards. Shebeens cause underage drinking and low school performances. Our forum proposes that licences should be given to specific areas meant for businesses. Shebeens in residential areas causes noise, pollution, and endangers lives as Sheebens are operating in main streets with door's facing pavements & roads, and thus, the clients coming out of sheebens, become victim of car accidents. We want municipalities to regulate laws, which will keep sheebens clean, especially toilets, so that elders visiting sheebens, must stay away from urinating in the street. We want health inspectors from Municipalities to revisit sheebens. Please help us to save lives and keep our coastal towns clean and admirable. Chairman Asser Stainley !Aibeb

Coastal Communities Support Boys Rudi Bowe

Jullian Rittman

The communities in the two coastal towns of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, opened their wallets and hearts for Chrisander Brits (6) and Jullian Rittman (12) at charity events which were held in the two towns.

Chrisander Brits

Team Spider from Swakopmund in collaboration with the Windhoek Spin City and Drift Spin Drags hosted the “Save a Kidney Charity Spin-show” at the Swakopmund Spin City. Spinners from all over Namibia flocked to the coastal town to give their support. All proceeds went to Jullian Rittman (12), who is known to be the only child in Namibia suffering from Denys Dash Syndrome. Rittman was diag-nosed with this syndrome at the age of one. Denys Dash syn-drome is characterised by kidney disease that begins within the first few months of life. According to re-search, the affected individuals have a condition called diffuse glomerulosclerosis, in which scar tissue forms throughout glomeruli, which are tiny blood vessels in the kidneys that filter waste from the blood. Due to the abnormal kidney function in his case, both his kidneys were removed in December 2016, and he since then has been receiving dialysis at Windhoek at the Kidney and Dialysis Centre three times a week. Rittman lives with his family in Rehoboth and they would travel to Windhoek every time for treatment. Team Spider further confirmed that Rittman has found a suitable donor and is being prepared for a kidney transplant in the meantime. A trusted fund have been opened in his name to provide financial assistance for the transplant and all the costs involved and this is why Team Spider decided to come on board and raise funds for Rittman. Bay Area 064 and DJ's in Walvis Bay held a Car Wash and Braaivleis and an Old School dance night where all the funds that were raised were given to Chrisander Brits. Chrisander aka “Chri” Brits, a six- year-old boy from Narraville, was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer in August 2017. Doctors in Namibia said that there is nothing they can do for Chri, and that his parents Jacques and Chrissie Brits should prepare themselves for the worst. Chrisander is on medication which just prolongs his time on earth. The parents of Chri would like to have a second opinion about the condition, but they cannot afford to do so. The father is the only bread winner in the family and with his salary they can barely survive. The mot-her is at home as she needs to take care of their boy. The Brits and Rittman family appreciated the effort of Bay Area 064 and Team Spider is happy that there are people out there that support and opened their heart for their children. Bay Area 064 will host a Show and Shin event at the end of June. The Walvis Bay Archery Schools Program will have an Archery shoot out in August with the proceeds been donated to both the Brits and Rittman families.

The Promiseland Trust on a daily basis provides approximately 2,500 meals to disadvantaged children in Walvis Bay through two feeding schemes – the one being a soup kitchen at the Promiseland Centre in Tutaleni where about 300 preschool children are given a hot meal once a day; the other is a school feeding scheme where approximately 2,200 meals consisting of fish and bread or pap are prepared by volunteers during weekdays at seven schools in Walvis Bay's poorest communities. “Thanks to this donation, we are now able to relocate our current soup kitchen to the Tu t a l e n i P r i m a r y School premises, which will allow us to increase the number of meals served daily as the space available at the Promiseland Centre has become limited. Furthermore, we will be able to use the current soup kitchen hall at the Centre to double our current forming project by introducing more classrooms,” said Mr Pieter Greeff, Chairperson of the Promiseland Board of Trustees at the handover ceremony on Saturday. Operating from its centre in the Tutaleni neighbourhood in Kuisebmond, the aim of the Promiseland Trust is to improve the quality of life of the community's most vulnerable children through education, feeding and character building. The Trust is fully reliant on donor funding and sponsorships. The Trust's partners in the feeding scheme are Etosha Fishing and Merlus Seafood Processors. Other main sponsors that provide ongoing funding to ensure the running of the Centre include Engen Walvis Bay Convenience Centre, Fruit & Veg Walvis Bay, Hantunga Fishing, Langer Heinrich Uranium, Namib Mills, Seawork and Walvis Bay Ship Chandlers.

Educational and other partners include Headstart Montessori Training College, Hand of Hope Ministries, The ELMA Philanthropies Services (U.S.) Inc. and volunteers from the German Red

Cross Society. Should anyone wish to contribute to the Promiseland Trust feeding schee or find out more about the Trust they can visit the website at www.promiseland.com.na.

12 NAMIB TIMES

12 JUNE 2018

Reviewing archival news media for information on Namibia’s marine life Article by Titus Shaanika In a data poor area such as the Namibian coastline, archived newspapers can be a priceless source of information. In search of historical records about the marine life off the Namibian coast, especially recordings of whale and dolphin strandings, the Namibian Dolphin Project (NDP) took to the archives of the namib times newspaper held at Walvis Bay Municipal library. Newspapers from 1965 to 2012 were reviewed by then University of Namibia student Titus Shaanika, who highlights the value of archives for science research. Whaling, cetaceans and stranding's: Since the inception of namib times newspaper, articles on whales and dolphins (cetaceans) have occurred intermittently and reflect the change in popular attitudes towards this charismatic group of animals. We found three articles on commercial whaling. On the 15 January 1965, an article reported the poor whaling season, stating that the 36 Norwegian catchers (whaling vessels) had lower catch results compared to the preceding year. Another article on 20 January 1967 reported about the banning of blue whale harpooning around Antarctica, mentioning that blue whales had been nearly hunted to extinction in these waters by Norwegian, Japanese and Soviet Union

(Russia) whalers. On 17 January 1971 there was a report of sperm whales being caught off South West Africa (Namibia's colonial name) by 3 whalers Oom Kappie, Run and Sao Nicolau (a Danish factory ship), with the author recognising that “whales are seldom seen in the bay nowadays but outside, at various places along South West Africa coast there are an increasing number of sperm whales…”. These articles reflect some of the modern history of whaling where Walvis Bay is linked. Southern right whales were once a common sight in the bay where they were thought to breed, hence the name Walvis Bay (Afrikaans for Whale Bay). Southern right whales were decimated in Walvis Bay from 1788 to 1803 by “open boat whalers” operating from sailing vessels, while the faster baleen whales including

the humpback, sei and blue whales were decimated during uncontrolled hunting in the 20th century from 1919 to 1979. Reports from the public and in the media on stranding's and rare sightings can be a useful source of information for researchers. Since 1965 the Namib Times has frequently reported sightings and stranding of several marine species, these included a basking shark, frill shark, pygmy right whale, humpback whales, sperm whales, straptooth or Layard's beaked whale, fin whale, killer whale, Cuvier's beaked whale, southern right whale, Heaviside's dolphin, dusky dolphin, bottlenose dolphin, elephant seals, leather-back turtles and rock-hopper penguins. Many of these records were not known through other sources and are a useful addition to the long-term data-

base of strandings within Namibia. Unknown to many people, several of the dolphins held in the dolphinarium in Durban, South Africa were caught in Walvis Bay in the late 70's and early 80's. During this time, wild capture of dolphins was more commonplace than seen today. An article on 12 July 1983 reported that bottlenose dolphins were first caught off Walvis Bay in 1976, and the act was publicly criticised. Plans to capture two more dolphins in 1983 were also not well received and were opposed by the Cape Town based Dolphin Action and Protection Group, in two articles on 02 and 18 August 1983. However, at this time a dolphin expert was quoted saying “although there would be a certain amount of disturbance to the remaining family of dolphins off the

Walvis Bay coast, the value gained from research to be carried out on these mammals would atone this upset,”. The animals that were captured, were later reported to be happy and settled on 25 November 1983. Two dolphins are alive in the dolphinarium till this day, Kelpie was born to one of the captured females and Gambit who has fathered many offspring while in captivity. The NDP's research in Namibia has shown that despite these early concerns, the Walvis Bay bottlenose dolphin population, although remaining small (less than 100 animals), continues to be stable over 30 years later. However, this population is facing growing human impacts in the area, including boat-based tourism, harbour expansion, pollution and even a threat of further capture for the live trade industry in 2016. Most of the recent articles have either been about stranding events or mostly refloating of stranded cetaceans, showing a clear shift in public engagement with these animals over the last few decades. For instance, two stranded bottlenose dolphins and pygmy right whale were rescued on 1st March 2002 and 08th February 2005 respectively by the members of the public in the Walvis Bay lagoon, while on the 13th February 2009 over 60 people unsuccessfully attempted to rescue a stranded humpback whale at Paaltjies beach on Pelican Point. The sighting of killer whales (6 June 2006) and even the birth of a humpback whale (10 July 2010) was reported in Walvis Bay, both very rare occurrences. The humpback whale birth is especially rare as most whales off the East Atlantic coast only breed and calf in the warm waters north of Namibia. Fisheries, Jellification and Sealing Walvis Bay is primarily a fishing town and since 1965, the Namib Times has through its' reports, documented the decline of one of the major industries in the country the small pelagic fishing industry which focuses on sardines (pilchard) and anchovy. In the 1960s, the pilchard fishery statistics and

reports appeared frequently highlighting their interest to the general public of the town. One fisherman even reported the incredible sighting of a pilchard shoal of about 46 km wide between Swakopmund and Henties Bay on 2 June 1967. The pilchard fishery was highly productive in its early years, with figures regularly above 200 000 tons per season and catches peaking at over 800 000 tons for the 1968 season. These figures, however, declined rapidly to below 50 000 tons per year by 1977. An article on the 24th January 1978 blamed the collapse of the fishery on overexploitation - a combination of the local industry, 70 plus Russian trawlers operating in Namibian waters and environmental anomalies, while an article on the 25th of April 1980 blamed the decline on mismanagement, greed and a lack of research. By the 28th August 1990, the entire Namibian pilchard stock stood at 750 000 tons (estimate by the Norwegian fisheries research vessel the Fridtjof Nansen), less than the annual catch of 1968. During this period (1990-1995) catches averaged over 90 000 tons per year. In 2017 pilchard stock is estimated to be 183 000 tons, and the total allowable catch (TAC) is set at 25 000 tons, just 3% of the 1968 catches. In an effort to help pilchard stock to recover, the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources (MFMR) recently (12 December 2017) announced it will not allocate pilchard quota for the following 3 years (2018 to 2020). These days, the Northern Benguela ecosystem off the coast of Namibia is characterized by massive numbers of jellyfish and they are a cause of concern as large catches can cause mechanical problems for fishermen, such as breaking fishing nets and blocking pumps. The leading theory is that jellyfish have taken over the role in the ecosystem formerly occupied by small pelagic fish such as anchovy and pilchard, so large numbers of jellyfish are often assumed to be a sign of major changes in the ecosystem. This 'Ecosystem shift' may be

irreversible. Historic data on actual jellyfish numbers is very poor, however an article in the namib times as long ago as 3 March 1967, reported that a fish load of 50 tons had 30 tons of jellyfish among it. This report suggests that the increase in jellyfish numbers may have occurred prior to the collapse of the sardine fishery, as the article further reads “however there is no scarcity of pilchards off the coast”. Additional anecdotal reports such as this may help scientists shed light on historic patterns. The interaction between fishermen and seals is nothing new, on the 16th October 1970 the controversial topic of seals versus fishing industry first appeared in the namib times, with seals being reported as a menace to the fishing industry and sealing was carried out to restore a “favourable balance in the seal population off the coast”. However, just days later (25th October 1970) sealing was criticized by Mrs Irene Kleyenstüber, “for thousands of years seals have been catching fish in the area without overfishing, the extermination of seals cold upset a balance of nature”. Although an emotional subject, seal harvesting happens seasonally in Namibia, providing much-needed employment and foreign currency through exports. More recently, on 15 June 2007, the Namib Times reported on marine life that is unintentionally killed during the fishing process. Thousands of untargeted (bycaught) seabirds, turtles and sharks are killed every year by the longline fishery. This figure can be reduced significantly by implementing mitigation measures and educating the fisherman about the importance of conserving Seabirds. The Albatross Task Force, funded by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and supported by the Namibian Nature Foundation, has since 2007 made significant inroads into solving the problem of seabird by-catch in Namibia. Today it is a must for fishing vessels to deploy bird scaring lines or pay fines of up to N$500 000.

Five coastal teams through to the National Finals The Neymar Jr's five maiden qualifiers kicked off over the weekend in Swakopmund, where the coastal teams made it through to the finals. Themed 'Outplay Them All', registered teams turned up to outplay each other in the midst of a misty day. Teams competed in the round robins stages, as skills and class turned out to be the game changers. In the end, SFC Welwitchia emerged victoriously, after it dominated the qualifiers and was crowned the coastal top team. SFC Atlantic took the second spot while SFC Namib, followed. Tika-Tika was placed fourth and NY Galaxy from Walvis Bay, secured the last spot as the fifth coastal team to qualify for the National Final to take place in Windhoek at the UN Plaza on Saturday, 30 June 2018. “The search for that one exceptional five-a-side team to represent Namibia at the World Final on Saturday, 21 July in Brazil, has begun. The Oshakati qualifier will be as exciting as the one we witnessed in Swakopmund, and we wish all the participants the best,” said Bank Windhoek Head of Corporate Affairs, Hayley Allen. Northern registered teams are encouraged to turn up prepared as the second tournament qualifier is set to take place at the Oshakati Independence Stadium this coming Saturday. “We are excited to have finally brought this international tournament to Namibia. This was an icebreaker, and June is going to be an exciting month for everyone involved with this

tournament,” said BKK Sports head, Harald Fuelle. Namibia's most successful professional soccer player, Collin Benjamin from BKK Sports, is part of the project committee, says that he is impressed with the talent and flair witnessed at the coast. “The coastal teams have grasped this concept which gives them a little bit of an advantage over the other teams. I am looking forward to one of the best tournaments ever staged in this country,” said Benjamin. The Neymar Jr's Five, a Brazilian soccer star's signature five-a-side soccer contest, is a Red Bull initiative co-sponsored by Bank Windhoek. The Snickers, the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) and Fresh FM are also sponsors of the event. The third and final qualifiers will take place on Saturday, 16 June 2018 at Dawid Bezuidenhout Sports Fields in Windhoek.
