G4S patrolman assists alleged drunken driver to leave the scene Floris Steenkamp

An armed response officer of G4S Secure Sollutions allegedly assisted a suspected drunk driver to make his escape from a vehicle accident scene in Walvis Bay's Sam Nujoma Avenue on Saturday morning. A white BMW slammed into two lamp posts at around 04:30 on Saturday, on the intersection of Sam Nujoma Avenue and 8th Road. Residents of the area were shaken from their sleep as the vehicle, seemingly at high speed, veered off the road onto the pavement and then took out the lamp posts in succession. Residents emerged from their homes and were greeted by a scene of utter destruction. Accident debris were sown over an area more than one hundred metres long and the destroyed lamp posts were laying in the roadway. A taxi driver only minutes after the accident failed to spot the damaged lamp post laying in the motorway and drove over it. One of the residents who emerged from his home seconds after the accident witnessed a male getting out of the passenger seat of the BMW. He walked around to the driver window and knocked at the window to wake the driver, who sat slumped over. When he managed to wake the driver, also a male, they switched seats. Soon, the scene was filling with residents as they got out of their homes to inquire what was happening. The two persons were confronted by the resident who witnessed them swopping seats. Despite several calls to the Namibian Police and promises they would dispatch to the scene soon, the first police vehicle only arrived well after six o'clock. The duo maintained the one who was seen behind the steering wheel, was the passenger. Continues on Page 2

A group of young men’s night out ended on a low note at around 06:00 on Saturday when the driver overturned the vehicle in Paul Vincent Street in the lagoon area. They tried to get the vehicle back on its wheels in an attempt to get away from the scene, but the vehicle was unmovable. The Police arrived at the scene and the driver was arrested.

By that time, a patrol vehicle of G4S Secure Sollutions arrived at the scene. The security official was alone and only stood at the scene for a few minutes before the two men were starting to walk to the patrol vehicle. At the patrol vehicle, the actual driver got into the passenger scene and the G4S patrol car departed the scene. The "driver" maintained his story, but when his family members arrived at the scene he started to cry and admitted although he is the owner of the BMW, the man who now left the scene was the driver. He admitted they were consuming alcohol and were visitors from Windhoek who attended a matric farewell as guests. When a police officer arrived at the scene after six o'clock he was informed about the events. The security officer at the time returned alone and he was confronted by the policeman. Minutes later both the police officer in his police vehicle and the G4S patrol vehicle left the scene and were going to search for the absconding driver. They returned after 07:00 and the policeman then indicated a tow-in service can take the damaged BMW away and the passenger-cumdriver-cum-passenger was taken to the police station. ¡In the meantime the regional operations manager in Erongo of G4S Secure Solutions, Mr. Johan KotzÊ, confirmed the incident and said the security official is currently the subject of a criminal investigation relating to the incident. "G4S has processes and policies in place. This official is well aware of these policies and procedures. He also has a driving license and knows what he can and cannot do at the scene of an accident. He must face the music and do so without our support, as he knew of better".

Road contractor UNIK may now accommodate road building workers at construction site Erwin Leuschner

The Swakopmund town council has decided to rescind an earlier decision it took to deny UNIK Construction Engineering Namibia the right to house workers at its construction camp. UNIK is a partly-Chinese road construction consortium, constructing the new dual carriage way east of the dune belt between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. Its construction camp is located close to the Swakop river. The decision was taken at the recent council meeting. Council thereby decided to repeal its decision passed in May when it was explicitly decided not to allow staff members to reside at any construction camps. At the same meeting in May, council gave UNIK 30 days to remove its employees from the camp. The issue surrounding staff members residing at construction sites started in June 2016, when council decided to lease a

portion to UNIK for the sole purpose to erect a construction camp. Back then council decided that no staff may be living on site. Shortly thereafter it was indeed estalished t h e r e w e r e s t a ff residing onsite, which prompted council to pass a decision in May to have these persons evicted. According to the agenda of the recent meeting, it is evident that from the onset that the prefabricated buildings erected at the UNIK construction camp is not only workshops, but also accommodation

units. It turned out the accommodation units were in fact noncompliant with the original understanding with council. Council now decided to allow staff to be accommodated on site, but subject to certain conditions. In the agenda, there are a number of arguments in favor of this decision, amongst others the fact that "the project is of national interest and supportive of industrial/business development in not only the Erongo Region, but the whole of Namibia." Another argument to

consider was that "no practical alternative site" is available, as the Dorob National Park borders the Swakop River/-townlands. In the agenda, it is also evident that not only the contractor UNIK slipped up by putting up accommodation quarters. The Roads Authority, a consortium stakeholder also "neglected to obtain permission for the establishment of the site prior to commencement of construction." Furthermore, it was established in the meantime that "the construction site and the use thereof is in conflict with the requirements of the Standard Building Requirements".

The carcasses of two oryx had been found on the D1982 road linking the C14 and the C28 near the farm Ruimte over the weekend, both evidently killed by poachers. A springbuck was also found in the same area alive, but wounded and the person who found it had to end the animal’s misery.“I found all

three animals shot. The oryx died of the gunshot injuries. One’s throat was slid, which indicates the poachers left the area with the intent to return there to load the animals. I had to slid the springbuck’s throat, as the animal was still alive and suffering”, the man explained. Poaching is prevalent in some areas of the Naukluft Park. It is especially areas closer to metropolitan areas.

Swakopmund’s first-goat Paulina has two lambs Swakopmund Mayor Paulina Nashilundo pays courtesy visit to her namesake Erwin Leuschner

Swakopmund Mayor Paulina Nashilundo on Friday paid a courtesy visit to her namesake, a she-goat which was donated by Councillor Uahimisa Kaapehi at last year's Mayoral Development Fund Fundraising gala dinner. And there was so much reason for this courtesy visit: Paulina the goat recently gave birth to twins, Paultjie and Paulinatjie. Paulina has become a famous goat and thanks to a unique idea by Riaan Coetzee, the animal is expected to generate more funds in future for the Mayoral Development Fund. During the courtesy visit Mayor Nashilundo said the goat was donated by Kaapehi on 25 November 2016. On the same occasion, the goat was baptised as Paulina and auctioned with Riaan Coetzee from Namibia Construction closing the bid at N$2 500. Since then, Paulina has been accommodated on a plot outside Swakopmund. Much to everyone's surprise Paulina gave birth to twins on 20 July this year [a she-goat and a billygoat]. The twins were appropriately named Paultjie and Paulinatjie after their famous mother. "Instead of slaughtering the animal, we decided to use Paulina to raise money for the Mayoral Development Fund on a regular basis," Coetzee explains. He proposed an auction be held every three months with the highest bidder receiving temporary ownership over Paulina and one the of the lambs, until the next round of bidding. The money

generated will be donated to the Mayoral Development Fund, while the winning bidders' names will be engraved in a special neck brace made for Paulina. Despite new ownership, the goat[s] will remain on the plot where they know best to do what they need to do: being goats. The idea was well-received and the first round of bidding is expected to take place soon. More information on this unique auction will be made on the website of the municipality of Swakopmund soon. Money raised for the Mayoral Development Fund is utilised to assist families, individuals and organisations in Swakopmund in areas of sport and recreation; health and education; arts & crafts; environment and community; and should any catastrophic events occur. The billy-goat lamb [male], Paultjie, will not be auctioned and belongs to the person currently looking after all three goats. The "landlord" wishes to remain anonymous. Paulina and her female lamb, Paulinatjie will be auctioned regularly.

New kind of Birth Certificate This is the new generation birth certificate issued to Namibians. According to an official from the Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration, this full birth certificate was rolled out in Swakopmund about a year ago and it is issued since to all newborns. The birth certificate contains details of both parents, including their full names, birth date and places of birth and makes the process easier especially where passports are issued to children.

Four stocktheft suspects Piquet Jacobs arrested

The four suspects ran away before being apprehended on Saturday, while one suspect was already arrested, but their identities were known to the police which lead to their arrest yesterday morning. The police were hot on their heels on Saturday as the donkey tracks lead to Tsawises Pos 3, where four don-keys were found to be slaughtered by the suspects and ten were recovered alive. The

donkeys which belong to a number of different owners have a combined value of N$19 000.

The suspects will appear in the Omaruru magistrates court today.

Strand Hotel Swakopmund gets global recognition

"Creating amasing experiences not only for our own people, but also for visitors to Namibia, as well as landing our country as a nation with immeasurable potential to deliver the best on the African continent, as well as the entire globe, are part of our main focus areas on this journey of contributing to building the economy of Namibia," says Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group Executive Chairman, Sven Thieme following Strand Hotel Swakopmund's recent award as a stand out in the hospitality industry on the African continent. The Strand Hotel Swakopmund was recently awarded the Best Hotel Development accolade in the 2017 Africa Property Investment (API) Awards, for its inno-vative design and outstanding achievements in servi-ces. The awards were announced during the API Sum-mit & Expo in Sandton, Johannesburg more than a week ago. Launched at this year's Summit, the API Awards are aimed at providing a distinguished platform for developers, suppliers and owners in the African real estate industry to showcase their best projects and services from across sub-Saharan Africa; giving special recognition to the best that Africa has to offer. Located in Namibia's premier seaside resort of Swakopmund, the Strand Hotel has become a landmark in the area and a popular holiday destination, with its beach location and being close to the town's amenities. The hotel is owned by O&L Leisure - a subsidiary of the O&L Group – with a strong and reputable portfolio consisting of the Exquisite Chobe Water Villas – an exclusive and intimate wildlife lodge located at the eastern tip of the famous Caprivi Strip; the ever popular Mokuti Etosha Lodge in the north of the country – a premier destination for foreign and local tourists seeking thrilling wildlife encounters at especially the globally known Etosha National Park area; the historic Midgard

Country Estate, located to the west of the Namibia is popularly known as an ideal family hide-away, a first or last stop for international visitors, the perfect venue for intimate meetings, and popular for team-building events or weddings for guests from all over the country and beyond, and of course the award-winning Strand Hotel Swakopmund that opened doors about two years ago.O&L Leisure Managing Director, Terence Makari: "For O&L Leisure, it is indeed humbling and satisfying to get such prestigious recognition. The Strand Hotel was developed to provide guests with an authentic and modern Swakopmund experience that's gemütlich, entertaining and rejuvenating. It was part of the design objectives to create a hotel that is charming and welcoming as the town it is located in. This recognition illustrates that all the thinking brought in the detail of the design of the hotel was worth it, and contributed immensely to creating a unique sense of place. It is satisfying to note that it is being recognized on the continental stage and we remain indebted to all stakeholders involved during the design stage for their valuable contributions. Its location, design and offering sets the Strand Hotel Swakopmund apart from other establishments in the sector." WSP in Africa – one of the largest multi-disciplinary engineering consultancies on the continent – was commis-

sioned by the developer to design the Rational Fire, piped services (gas/plumbing and drainage), mechanical ventilation and air-conditioning for the hotel. "The main objective of the system's design was to contribute towards sustainable development by means of utilizing resource efficiency in the design, careful selection of equipment that can withstand the harsh corrosive environments and provide robust reliable operation. Plant and materials were also selected of a suitable quality to last for a design life span of between 20- and 25-years, without major refurbishment during this period." said Peter Hodgkinson, Managing Director of WSP Building Services, in Africa. In a statement from API, the award panel also indicated that the design of the hotel met the requirements of the local heritage council and that it responds sensitively to the existing indigenous landscape – through a functional and contemporary design approach that provides a unique aesthetic. CEO of the Hospitality Association of Namibia (HAN), Gitta Paetzold: "An award of this nature speaks to the quality and high standards of tourism/hospitality infrastructure that Namibia is able to offer to its national and international guests - proving that Namibia as a destination compares very well with the quality experiences in the rest of the world. The Strand Hotel Swakopmund has been a special place since its inception, and I wish to take this back to its initial construction - the hotel having been one of the founding members of HAN in 1987, and having held a special place in Namibian hospitality all along. Being situated at the main public beach in Swakopmund, most Namibians have a sense of ownership of that space and place, which explains why the planning for the total reconstruction of the Strand Hotel after Independence was such a long and complex process. Everyone, including many members of the public and the Swakopmund Aesthetics Committee felt the need to contribute, comment and object to the various plans presented prior to construction - resulting in the final design speaking to the needs and expectations of the public, who were guaranteed continued access to the place and surrounding beach and promenade - and even more so, the multitude of services, niches and products offered within the hotel. The award is proof that this concept was well thought through and applied successfully, making the new Strand Hotel Swakopmund a magnet for local and foreign guests alike. HAN is extremely proud to count the Strand Hotel Swakopmund as a founding and existing member of the Association, as it is a role model of continued improvement, where warm hospitality and service excellence are the key pillars of the operation - something that HAN is keen to promote in Namibia as a whole."

“Merge the Erongo Expo and Swakopmund’s SWAITEX”

US-pilot offers four day specialist helicopter flight training Ten helicopter pilots from Namibia took part in a specialist helicopter flight training course in Swakopmund this week. The course was presented by chief pilot Simon Jones from Los Angeles, California, a helicopter pilot specialising in the flight of Robinson helicopters. The course was organized by NAMAGRI Aviation Services, who is the leading distributor of Robinson helicopters in Namibia. The Robinson R44 is a four-seater light helicopter produced by the Robinson Helicopter Company. It remains the world's best-selling general aviation (GA) helicopter since 1999. Adel Oosthuizen Welldone NAMAGRI Alex McDonald for organizing such an important initiative to investing into the education and experience of Helicopter pilots in Namibia!! Annette Oelofse Thank you Simon for your patience. Your incredible experience has certainly enriched us all and added infinite value to our safety and our flying skills. A day not to be forgotten, every moment absorbed. Fly well, until

we meet again. Joshua Brown This is super cool Simon! Mick Lane Nice job Advanced Flight. Lawrence Matthews Excellent article Simon, congrats. Crystal Leigh Maillet You made the news! Alessandra Manzotti Awesome Simon!!!! Neil Fender Where can I sign up? Andrea Lopes Very nice Mr. JONES!!!!

Its now or never to get back in the Receiver’s good books

If the Chief Executive Officer of the Namibia Ports Authority (Namport), Mr Bisey Uirab has his way, the road is paved for a merger of two of the coast's biggest trade expo's – the Namport Erongo Business and Tourism Expo and the Swakopmund International Trade Expo (SWAITEX).At the recent launch of 2017 Erongo Trade Expo in Walvis Bay, Mr Uirab said over the years he witnessed a fragmentation among towns in hosting events such as trade expo's. In the case of the coast the towns of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund is only thirty kilometres apart, yet the two towns host two parallel events of the same magnitude and nature.Terming it "disconnect", Mr Uirab said: "If we are to grow our regional economies and ultimately that of our country, I believe there is an urgent need to address such disconnect.” Adding: "With this I particularly refer to Swakopmund (hosts of SWAITEX) and Walvis Bay (host of the Namport Erongo Business and Tourism Expo).My dream is to see a merge of these two events into one big exposition for the west coast". Clinton Lang Fantastic Idea. Let's work together instead of always being in competition with one another. Peter Odendaal Good Idea!

Hartmann murder suspect also sustained a broken leg during arrest at Outjo - sources The main suspect in the murder of Manfred Hartmann, an elderly resident of Swakopmund on 18 August this year is still recovering in a Windhoek hospital from a gunshot wound from a policeman's firearm. He fled Swakopmund after the murder and was shot lees than twelve hours later resisting arrest at Outjo. Meanwhile, the Namibian Police issued a renewed request for the public to assist identifying family members or friends of the deceased Mr Hartmann.”We urge residents to come forward with information on how we can trace the family," said Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu, police regional crime investigations coordinator for Erongo.

Taxpayers who are not in good standing at the Receiver of Revenue has been given a second chance to do so, thanks to an extended "amnesty", announced earlier this week. An amnesty period concluded on 31 July made provision for penalties on taxes in arrears to be written off entirely, but this new round is rather a tax in arrears recovery program whereby 70 % of penalties may be waivered. The tax payable will not be lowered and will be payable in full.The Ministry of Finance announced in a media release the last tax arrears recovery incentive programme will commence on 11 September 2017 and Louwrenda It sounds like the man has a German name. Have authoraties tried conclude on 11 March 2018. Thereafter tax payers not in good standing may not come off contacting the German Embassy in attemp to find relatives that might be residing there? very well from a brush with the Receiver. Alex Muukua Tax tax tax each year.....no salary increasing!!!! Louw Greeff so the guilty ones gets waived on

interests how about the ones who religiously pay the damn tax for years? can i get discount too?

Alex Muukua I agree 2 the country's high murders rate must be stopped now...........A.S.A.P!!!!!

Dear all We've seen your article about the robbery at dune 7 in the digital newspaper.

Kambueshe: “Rising crime must be answered with a plan and not only a speech” Swakopmund constituency councilor Juuso Kambueshe has condemned the brutal murder of elderly residents in August in his constituency, stating it has made him realise his shortcomings as leader. In an interview with namib times he not only took responsibility as leader in a most admirable way, Kambueshe also called on regional leaders, including himself, to find a solution to curb the rising crime wave. Although Kambueshe applauds the police force for a job well done on apprehending the suspects in all three cases, he wants to address the rising crime wave in order to protect people proactively, rather than the reactionary hunting for the criminal when it is already too late for the victim. "Both these incidents have made me realize my shortcomings as a leader”. "Firstly, we need to conduct an in-depth analysis into what is causing these crimes. We need to look at our moral values and we need to be held accountable as leaders", he continued. Whilst Kambueshe concedes crime is a social evil and that it will always exist, he asks to what degree "we should allow it.” Ian J Izaacs The only way to reduce crime stats is if you violate any law you get charged locked up and prosecuted. No acception to the rule, Zero tolerance to crime. Elaine Thompson Clinton Lang Isn't this what you're trying to highlight to the Swakopmund Municipality? Why not start with addressing the small issues like harassment by vendors and loitering first (which CAN be done). Many small

interventions amount to bigger consequences. Alex Muukua Good point Mr J Kambueshe.. i salute you comrade. Clinton Lang Thank you Councillor. We hope to see you and some of your colleagues at the silent protest too. The whole town is welcome. https://www.facebook.com/events/8754681159543 66

We already heard of it, because the tow trucker, who towed us away for a similar event, happend to us at a parking between walvis bay and swakopmund. At the 11th of august we've been robbed by 4 guys. We stood at a parking place, our front wheels were stuck in the sand, we were almost done. Then a car came, stood at the sea, were doing something with their car, turned around and they stopped.1 of them stayed in the car, a dark blue toyota carolla, older model, and the 3 of them came at us. I saw immediatley that it was wrong, but what can you do. My husband was standing at the drivers side and me on the other side, they immidiatley grabbed my husband by the throat and started hitting him, with there fists. I grabbed a peace of wood, and attacked the man from behind and after some hits they let my husband loose, so he could defend himself. He saw one of the guys going into the car, so he went try to stop him, by slamming the car door against his legs. The other two started hitting my husband again while he was standing with his back against the car and the me started hitting them again with the peace of wood and one was not amused, so he hit me in the face and he turned around again at my husband, and my husband hit the guys back and than me hit the guy one more time and the he grabbed my by the throat and pushed me down to the ground. And started hitting me, then i said it's enough and he let me go, the let my husband go and they ran away with our belongings, smartPhone, 3 camera's (one was a d3 nikon) binocular, Jacket, money, and they even took the car keys and the drove away. they took theire license plate of theire car when they stood at the sea, we noticed afterwards. It happend round 10.30 and 11.00 o'clock. We went to the policestation and they made the police report.We got an other car from budgetcars, so we could continue our journey.The next day, still afraid and shaky, what happend the day before, we went for a new camera, it was very expensive, so we had to think about it. We went to the touristharbour, were the tourist go on the catamarantours, but our mind was not in to it, so drove away then suddely there was a red car behind us. In it a boy and i girl, they drove beside us and told us to stop, because our left rear tire was not good, we looked at each other and said oh no not again….We saw in the corner another car, and we drove straight to our b&b and there was nothing wrong…..So we were very afraid to go out again and our holiday was ruined…… Kind regards.

Press Release

DRC Project School receives NFCPT Donates 60 books for its library Computers to schools in the Oshana Region Sharlien Tjambari

Learners of the DRC Project School now have access to a library of their own. The library is stocked with donated books covering titles from fiction to non-fiction, educational material and even old magazines. "These books were a collection from years back and they have been in my store room for quite a long time. I was doing some spring cleaning recently, and I decided to get rid of them. I thought to myself instead of throwing them away, there might be a school or kindergarten which might be in need of books, so I asked a friend who told me about the library at DRC Project School", explains the donator who wishes to stay anonymous. Dina Muningirua, a teacher at the DRC Project School was very surprised when the books arrived at the school. She said she will start arranging and packing the books on the shelves

immediately. The DRC Project School operates from containers and the library is also housed in a container. Adding a very beautiful container which is painted white. The library has a very welcoming atmosphere and an cozy warm reading corner. Muningirua thanked the lady who gave them the books and said books were all they needed at this point. She also explained community members are welcome to go read the books and make use of the library. The school also offers afternoon classes for learners who perform academically poor in their respective schools.

The Namibia Fish Consumption Promotion Trust (NFCPT) received collective efforts from the Namibian fishing fraternity and stakeholders during the 2016 National Fish Consumption Day (NFCD) Gala Dinner held in the Oshana Region. With this, the Trust has identified schools within the Oshana region to donate computers to the tune of N$560,500. This gesture is in line with the aspirations of the Harambee Prosperity Plan, where we as a Government have identified the need for the accelerated roll-out of Information Communication Technology infrastructure, to aid in the development of Information Communication Technology literacy; which is relatively low, especially within Rural Namibia. Thirty (30) schools will benefit from the donations within the Oshana region, where each school will receive two (2) Computers. The funds used to procure the Information Communication Technology equipment, was as a result of the spin-offs of the Annual National Fish Consumption Day. It is through the National Fish Consumption Day that, the Namibia Fish Consumption Promotion Trust, ploughs back into the communities, where the National Fish Consumption Day is held, the festival is rotated annually through-out all the regions in the country. The 2017 National Fish Consumption Day was launched on 11 August, in Walvis Bay and festivities will take place in Nkurenkuru, Kavango West region. The gala dinner will take place on 20 October followed by the market day on 21 October. Invitations to the 6th Annual National Fish Consumption Day are now open.

Katelynn closer to her dream Piquet Jacobs

11-year-old Katelynn Venter, who was born with spina bifida, is a step closer to her dream of participating in the Paralympic Games one day. Katelynn was in for the surprise of her life on Saturday, when Robert Glover (20), donated his handcycle to her. In December 2012, members of the Coastal Cycling Club pulled together to buy Robert a handcycle, which he has now passed on to Katelynn. Due to Katelynn’s condition, she is paralysed from the waist down, but has not allowed anything to alter her life and the way she has decided to live it. After she was born, doctors had little hope for Katelynn, but she has defied those odds. Katelynn is a very bright and active young girl, and she has set her heart on participating in the Paralympic Games, which is now possible. Along with the handcycle, Katelynn received cycling gear to accompany her new ride. All of this was made possible by Robert, Mulyns Accountants, Turnkey Electrical Solutions, Hydroweld, Corridor Logistics, Steckels Toyota, Be Seen Be Safe Cycling Campaign, Bush Café, OTB, Gert, Tobi, Tiaan, Berno, Tanya, Gerda, Raquel, Lonel and Francois.

An Acute Specialist Hospital and Medical Village coming to Swakopmund soon A green Hospital featuring green care is coming to Swakopmund next year. The Development of the new Swakopmund Acute Specialist Hospital and Medical Village is set to commence in October in Extension 17 in Swakopmund located at the turnoff to the Swakopmund landfill. This hospital is part of a new concept of holistic integrated community care and will treat all patients from all walks of life: be it private overseas patients, local medical aid patients, state and indigent patients. A non-profit company, Virtue Health NPC, will use crowd sourcing and donor funding to treat indigent Namibians who are presently not cared for adequately. The hospital will strive to provide an

environment where doctors and nurses would like to work and learn and provide new levels of hospitality and care to patients. This was said by Dr Neels de Villiers who is the majority shareholder of the hospital. The development of the Swakopmund Acute Specialist Hospital Project consists of three phases and development is set to start in October 2017 and will conclude two years later, in October 2019. Phase 1 will consist of a 54 bed Acute

Specialist Hospital, 26 unit Nurses Hospital. This part of the development is estimated at N$150 million. Phase 2 contains the Rossmund Golf Estate Medical Village featuring Specialist Centres of Excellence. This will consist of a Spinal Surgery Unit; Gynae and Fertility Unit; a Cancer and Breast Cancer Unit; a Stroke and Alzheimer Rehab Unit; a Hip, Knee and Shoulder Arthroplasty Unit; a Cancer Pain and Chronic Pain Treat-

ment Unit; a Tropical and Communicable Disease Unit; a Retina and Macular Degeneration Unit; and a Diabetes Management Unit. This phase will include a 26 Bed Greencare Assisted Living Units. According to de Villiers this phase will cost N$90 million. The development of Phase 3 is expected to commence in October 2018 and will be completed by October 2019. This will consist of a 54 Upmarket Double Bed en Suite Retirement Apartments at

Rössmund Palms Springs and Rössmund Golf Course. The Project value of this phase is estimated at N$100 million, said de Villiers. According to de Villiers the commercial property at the Rossmund Golf Course measuring 1.8 hectare was obtained in 2013. In 2014 a further 1.5 hectare of Swakopmund municipal land on Erf 17 was obtained. This property lies next to the Henties Bay Road. In 2015 the hospital licence was obtained. De Villiers mentioned that the nurses at this hospital are each equipped with a notepad in which they will enter all patient's

health information. Everything is to be stored electronically. “From genetic lifestyle and communicable diseases as well as a customized individual health profile will allow for a customized medical insurance product per member,” he said. De Villiers continued saying that with this system in place, each patient will have a unique patient number and that will stay on the system. “Local general practitioners and Namibian specialists are invited to practice in this facility to transfer knowledge and skills and surgical techniques, while a local nurses training unit

will train enrolled nurses. Overseas Super Specialists will get restricted registration to work only in the Swakop Surgical Hospital and Erongo Swakop District Hospitals,” de Villiers added. De Villiers also said that 50% of the hospital will be owned by Namibians and anyone who wishes to invest in the hospital can contact Ansie van der Merwe at kea@iway.na. For medical enquiries interested persons are encouraged to contact Kowie de Klerk at lynxsa@ gmai.com.

“To Finish is to Win” at the 21st Walvis Bay Ride The 21st Walvis Bay Endurance Ride a very popular African Endurance that is labelled the ultimate Endurance Challenge with rider and horse having to endure all aspects of the vastness and solitude of the Namib Desert. The Endurance Ride Association of Namibia (NERA) decided in 1996 that Walvis Bay was the ideal environment to host a ride of international standards in the latter part of the season when the rest of Namibia was already experiencing the first heat of summer. Walvis Bay was perfect for an endurance competition in the months of August and September as the east winds that blow across the Namib Desert are normally over by then. Furthermore, Walvis Bay is the ideal location for a challenging competition with the dune landscapes providing one of the toughest endurance rides in the world with a true challenge in stamina, fitness and endurance. The Walvis Bay Ride, commonly known as the African Championships, became the biggest Equestrian event in Namibia. The Walvis Bay Ride put Namibia on the international map as it lured high profile delegates, officials, veterinarians, supporters and friends to the town and promoted Walvis Bay and the town's unique environment. The Namib Desert, surrounding Walvis Bay, is one of the oldest deserts in the world, and the Walvis Bay Ride takes the Endurance Rider over some of the highest dunes in the world. This ride is not only one of the most popular in Africa, but also an Endurance Ride in the true sense of the word. Rider and Horse have to endure all aspects of the vastness and solitude of the Namib Desert. Councillor Tobias Nambala on behalf of the Mayor of the coastal town of Walvis Bay Honourable Alderman Immanuel Wilfried welcome all the participants to the port of Namibia City and at the same time congratulate all participants for making it this far. We are indeed thrilled to be able to host you during the 2017 championships and trust that you will leave our city with only fond memories and great stories to tell. The Walvis Bay Municipal Council will continue to create a conducive environment for private citizens and residents to pursue their happiness in the letter and spirit of all our regulations and municipal bylaws. To this end, the Municipality of Walvis Bay as the administrative arm of Council has shown and continues to display enthusiasm and unwavering support to all sports codes, since we all believe that sports and other recreational activities are essential stimulants for a happier and healthier lifestyle. Municipality of Walvis Bay would therefore like to applaud the organisers of this competition for an excellent event. Also, we want to urge all people in Walvis Bay to cultivate and continue to encourage horse-riding as a sports especially amongst our children and previously disadvantaged communities. I am further inclined to remind you of the theme under which the championships are being held, namely: To finish is to win. This seems to place particular emphasis, at least in my mind on being prepared to endure the entire leg to the championship and not necessarily on crossing the finish line first. This is an important principle as it strives to encourage all participants to finish the race and through that become worthy, individual winners. NERA Walvis Bay 2017 Teams Junior Team: Manager; Sylvia Janbey, Riders: Jonel Coetzee- Enduro Gameel, Liezel Du Plessis-Hurst Nezma,Bianca Jacobs – Amaal, Maya Janbey Atashi Sky, Caroline Neumann - QP Majeeda.

They however nursed the animals which successfully went through the veterinarian check. Reni van der Merwe and Lara van Niekerk were acknowledged for attending the Walvis Bay ride on 10 consecutive occasions. Engela Louwrens on Wiejandie Parmant was the best senior rider with a time of 6:30:51. This was also the fastest overall time recorded for the race.

The shortest time recorded by a rider was 6:30:51, the longest time was 9:51:43 and the best slip time (recovery time for a horse) recorded over 122 km was 7 minutes and 22 seconds."

17 580 arrows fly at the 2nd Namibian NASP (National Archery in the School Programme) Nationals On Saturday, 9 September 2017, the 2nd Namibian National Archery in the School Programme (NASP) Nationals took place at the SKW Archery Range. The range was set up on Friday with gazebos to shade the archers. On Saturday, parents brought umbrellas and chairs to enjoy a day out with their children to see a total of 17 580 arrows fly at the 2nd Namibian NASP (National Archery in the School Programme) Nationals. A total of 114 archers from 17 schools/organisations shot 3 Bulls' Eye Rounds and 2 3D Animal Rounds. The festive event commenced with the playing of the Namibian National Anthem and the raising of the Namibian flag. Then the first arrows started flying. To accommodate so many archers and working under time constraints, the archers were split into three groups. While one group was shooting at the traditional colourful round ring target faces, another group was shooting at the 3D targets. The third group was resting! To run two ranges simultaneously, many BAI (Basic Archery Instructor) are needed, as safety is the first priority in NASP. Every hour, the groups rotated and the scores were frantically awaited. After many hours in the baking sun, the archers ranging from grade 4 to grade 12 witnessed the first ever AAG (Adult Archery Group) shoot. Here a total of 32 parents and archery instructors shot under the same conditions as the archers. The last arrow was drawn and the archers put away all the equipment - bows, arrows, quivers and cleaned up the premises while in the makeshift office, the scores were being processed for the prize giving. Each archer received a participation certificate while winners, first and second runners up also received a medal and a floating trophy. The highlight of the prize giving was the handing over of the specially customised bows for the girl and boy archer with the help of NASP Inc and Roy Grimes, the founder of NASP. The organising committee is very pleased with the results and is hopeful for a even brighter future for our archers as they get ready for the All Africa All-Star Championship to be held at Hartebeespoort Dam in April next year with a total of 32 archers attending, as well as the All Nation All-Star World Championship in Calgary, Alberta, Canada during July 2018. Our top 16 archers will be representing Namibia at this event. During the day, parents ran the kiosk and the "braai wagon" to make sure no-one was hungry or thirsty. A big thank you to the parents, who manned these stalls during the event, often not being able to watch their own child shoot. We would also like to thank the mums with the beautiful handwritings who completed the certificates with much love and attention to detail. NASP would like to thank our Sponsors.

Erongo Region Lost in final of Skorpion Zinc Cup titles Submitted by NFA media officer

A brace from Willem Elia and a goal each from Timotheus Petrus and Shiimi Matheus ensured a 4-2 victory for Omusati over Erongo in the final of the 2017 Skorpion Zinc under-17 Cup at the Sam Nujoma stadium on Sunday afternoon. The champions wasted no time as they got their first goal on two minutes through Timotheus Petrus and Erongo tried to get back into it through Steven Damaseb but his goal disallowed for offside. The Erongo boys finally got the qualifier through Dario Goraseb on 13 minutes to draw the game level. Omusati Region then went on the offensive again and a moment of madness from an Erongo defender who handled the ball assuming the whistle had gone for offside lead to a penalty warded for Omusati. Up stepped Willem Elia who slotted home to make it 2-1 on 25 minutes and it was then 3-1 as Elia scored his second goal a minute later. In the second half, Erongo brought on Leighton McCalty who needed only three minutes to reduce the deficit to 3-2 with a well taken goal. Omusati then regained their composure and made it 4-2 on 55 minutes through Shiimi Matheus, a lead that they held on until the end. Erongo were missing their start man Prince Tjiueza who missed the game due to injury

Dream come true for Young Namibian Riders Three young Namibian Endurance riders will be leaving for Valeggio sul Mincio in Italy to compete at the 2017 Fei Meyden World Endurance Championships for Young Riders from 22 - 24 September. The Namibian riders will be competing with a total of 159 other riders from 34 countries. The distance is a 120 km ride. This is a dream come true for the riders, their parents and the team manager Lientjie de Wit. The Namibian riders are not in the elite class and therefore need to qualify for the World Endurance Championships. The riders had 24 month to qualify for the World Endurance Championships and they had to ride 3 x CEI2* (120 km) of which one must be on the horse that they will ride at the World Championships This means that riders in Namibia and South Africa need to participate at a 2 FEI 2* 120 km rides and they need to participate and finish the rides successfully. A part of the qualifier is riders had to go to Italy and participate in an event with the horses that they will ride at the World Championships. The Namibian riders had to rent horses in Italy and Portugal for the World Championships. The cost to rent one horse is 7000 Euros. It is an expensive exercise for these riders to qualify and participate at the World Championships. Most of the expenses are covered by their parents, as there are no financial contributions from the Government. Sponsorship are also in short supply. This year, for the first time in quite a few years Namibian riders will be competing at the World Championships. The riders that will compete at the World Championships are; Maja Janbey with Aigoual Elias, a horse from Italy, Jinel Coetzee with Quello Che Vuoi a horse from Italy and Bianca Jacobs with Doha, a horse from Portugal.

Rossmund GC vs Walvis Bay GC Rossmund GC played host over the weekend to the "Duel in the Desert" Golf tournament against Walvis Bay GC proudly sponsored by Business Connexions and the format a Betterball Mixed Stableford. The tournament was an initiative to improve the camaraderie between the two clubs at the coast. Weather conditions were just perfect for golf and the course was in superb condition - a little bit of sunshine and not too much wind to start with – although the back end of the field was reeled in by the late afternoon South Wester. A total of 8 pairs from each club – 32 players in all - took up the challenge starting at around 11 o'clock. As too be expected the atmosphere was on a high and the Nineteenth Hole was a buzz of activity. The long time popular sponsor Business Connexions had some great prizes on offer and was represented by the ever popular Hoffie who officiated at the prize-giving. In true golfing tradition Bossie Bosman and Danie van Antwerpen had to down a penalty Jagermeister shot for having played the Most Golf on the day. Rossmund came out on top of the challenge by putting all their

local knowledge to the test - with 290pts against a well played 260pts from the visitors. There will undoubtedly be a rematch. Individual Results: There were 2-clubs from Dawid Coetzee and Marco Swarts on Number 7. Winners: Zelda Nel/Marina Louscher (RGC) 50pts (it would appear the ladies are making a habit of winning this type of tournament); 2nd Place: Herman Schmidt/Johny Sardinah (WBGC) 45pts (c/o); 3rd Place: Dawid Coetzee/Steven Johns (RGC) 45pts; 4th Place: Marco Swarts/Thomas Shitaleni (RGC) th 43pts; 5 Place: Achmet Abrahams/ Bertie Saunderson (RGC) 42pts (c/o).

Isaacs positive about Races heat up for Gladiators’ chances championship title The experience and talent of the Brave Gladiators will come in handy as they departs for Zimbabwe on Saturday to participate in the 2017 Cosafa Women Championships in Bulawayo where Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa waits in Group C. The Brave Gladiators are heading to their third regional football showpiece with evidently lack of game time but their coach Brain Isaacs is positive the ladies can emerge from the group stage. “I'm positive the ladies will do us proud in Zimbabwe. We have done all we could in terms of preparations and they have what it takes to reach the next round. Facing Botswana, Lesotho and South Africa will be challenges we need to overcome as a team and the ladies know they need to believe in their own abilities for us to achieve this”, explains Isaacs. The coach adds that the experience and exposure of the players in the team will also play a part. “Most of the ladies in the team featured at the continental showpiece in 2014 and have since played in some qualifiers and that exposure and experience can only do us good. The team has been part of regular visits of Germany over the years and that can also give us an edge”, states Isaacs.

The Gladiators are also boosted by the availability of European based duo Zenatha Coleman and Veweziwa Kotjipati, who plies their trade in Lithuania and Germany respectively. “They bring a new dimension to the team and gives confidence to the other players and so that is why we remain positive and go there to compete” says Isaacs. The Gladiators will open the competition with a match against Botswana on Wednesday, 13 September, 10h30 and then play South Africa on 15 September, 14h00 and then finish off against Lesotho on 17 September, 16h00 in Bulawayo. The Gladiators for Cosafa Women Championship: Agnes Kauzuu, Melisa Matheus, Iina Katuta, Uerikondjera Kasaona (captain), Twelikondjela Amukoto, Stacey Naris, Lorraine Jossop, Ester Amukwaya, Vewe Kotjipati, Juliana Skrywer, Millicent Hikuam, Thomalina Adams, Zenatha Coleman, Memory Ngonda, Shirley Cloete ,Lovisa Mulunga, Elmarie Fredericks, Elina Uulumbu, Anna-Marie Shikusho and Twanyanyukwa Anstino.

The FIRS World Roller Games in Nanjing, China, at which the Namibia Junior Men Inline Hockey Team participated successfully, earning its first ever (bronze) medal at world championship participation. Namibia being placed in Pool D with Spain, France and Great Britain, played their first game against France (being the tournament favourite and who then won the World Cup and Gold Medal in the end..) and lost 1-8. The next game up was against Spain (who in the end played against France in the final and lost 5-0) which Namibia lost 6-2. To complete the first round Namibia was then up against Great Britain, and the game ended in a draw 4-4 and Namibia got seeded last. Namibia then continued into the next round for the placing in the Nations Cup, whilst the top 8 teams out of the 17 participants continued to fight it out for the

World Cup. The Namibian Junior Men suddenly picked up momentum, beating their next opponent Chinese Taipei 5-1and Germany, on the same day, 6-2 in the playoffs. The next opponent in the placing 9/12 was Canada, which beat Namibia 7-3 despite the NamBoys playing an excellent and hard game, pounding the Canadian goal with shots that just would not end up in the net. Thus the hopes for winning a medal remained, however gold and silver was gone, but it was to be the silver medal with a fantastic game against New Zealand that Namibia won 9-1. It must be noted that Wim van der Plas from Team Namibia achieved a hat trick, close followed by Erik

Rubbert who scored twice. The Namibia Junior Men now stand 11 out of 17 in the world ranking at FIRS, thus a definite improvement on the team's performance in Italy 2016, which was almost made up of the same squad. The coaches Matt Wojcik and Brian Sobel, as well as NIIHA are very satisfied with the Junior men's achievements at the FIRS World Roller Games and wish to congratulate them on their medal at worlds!
