Port of Walvis Bay key Chinese global “Belt and Road” network

Port of Walvis Bay set for 400 % increase in electricity usage by 2019 - STS-cranes the reason.. Floris Steenkamp The port of Walvis Bay's electricity usage is set for an increase of close to 400 % when its four ship-to-shore cranes (STS-cranes) are commissioned by the end of the year. Each ship-to-shore crane at peak load is expected to draw 2, 5 megawatts [10 megawatts in total], as opposed to the port's current entire power demand of 3, 5 megawatts. Each crane will be supplied with electricity by a trailing cable which conveys electricity at 11 000 volts. This was said on Friday by the chief executive officer of Namport, Mr. Bisey /Uirab on the occasion of the arrival of the four giant cranes aboard the heavy cargo vessel Zhang Hua 8. The cranes were custom built for Namport in China and departed the port of Shanghai destined for Walvis Bay on 30 December 2017. /Uirab explained the port of Walvis Bay evolved to accommodate larger container ships, in line with international customer demand. Container handling equipment inevitably also has to keep up the pace with size and capacity, and therefore these STS-cranes are now set to replace the role of the mobile harbour crane the port of Walvis Bay used the past 21 years. In fact the port of Walvis Bay boasts nine mobile

harbour cranes, but with the advent of the ship-toshore cranes these mobile harbour cranes will now shift roles to bulk cargo handling. Mobile harbour cranes can load and unload 15 containers per hour. The new STS-cranes load and unload an average of between 30 and 40 containers per hour. These four STS-cranes were manufactured by ZPMC and were delivered with the container terminal on reclaimed land now clicking on to just past the three quarters completion mark. ∙Other features of the STS-cranes as outlined by Mr.Uirab: each crane came at a cost of N$110 million; the height of each crane with the boom in operational position is 70m; the height of the crane can increase to 122m with the boom raised; boom outreach from seaside leg is 69m; on a clear day the cranes will be visible from Swakopmund; each crane weighs 1 290 tons.

Vehicle and train collide at Swakopmund

The late Richard Schumacher The death occurred on Sunday of Mr. Richard Schumacher (50), perhaps best known for the major role he played over many years at the Sea Rescue Institute of Namibia's Station 1 (S.R.I.N. Walvis Bay). Mr. Schumacher for several years called Walvis Bay and Angola home, after taking up a job opportunity in that country. He later relocated to Henties Bay and was for the past few months living there permanently with his wife and toddler daughter, after his contract in Angola expired. Former colleagues of the S.R.I.N. yesterday described the late Mr. Schumacher as a very dedicated member of the sea rescue fraternity, an easy person to work with and an able and dependable colleague at sea. According to a close relative Mr. Schumacher complained on Saturday of not feeling well. On Sunday morning his wife rushed him to the Medi-Clinic Cottage Hospital in Swakopmund where he was admitted to the intensive care ward. He sadly passed away within twenty minutes after being admitted. Funeral arrangements are yet to be announced. Picture: Koos Liebenberg

Contributed Walvis Bay Corridor Group (WBCG) CEO Johny Smith bade farewell to the group on 31 January after 11 years of uninterrupted service. Smith was appointed as the new CEO of TransNamib by the board of directors and had his first day of office on 1 February. Clive Smith, the current Project Manager: Logistics Hub of the corridor group has taken over as acting CEO. The outgoing CEO thanked the board, his team, co-opted members and strategic partners in Namibia, the SADC region and the international community for their support, commitment and perseverance. "You are central to WBCG's ability to provide high-quality transport, logistics and wellbeing services to our customers. I have full confidence in the team and Clive Smith who will be leading them during the next few months to further develop our corridors to create more value for Namibia and the SADC region." WBCG board chairman Bisey Uirab said Smith's visionary leadership and commitment to see results helped develop the corridor concept not only in Namibia but also in Africa and the world over. "The Namibian corridors are today well known for being a significant contributor to the development of the country thanks to his efforts." He further stated that the board was sad to lose Smith at this point when corridor development is being discussed and the significant role that the logistics hub under the strong leadership of WBCG would play. The board is however happy that he will continue to play a significant role in the development of the Corridor Group by virtue of his new role. Smith said he viewed his journey at WBCG as an experience of a lifetime and that he was fortunate to be part of a public private partnership that transformed and led the transport and logistics sector from a Namibian perspective. He received many accolades during his tenure at WBCG including the CEO for Logistics award in Africa. He has also led the corridor concept for Namibia as best practice which has become a best model for corridor development on the continent and at a global level. Clive Smith has 20 years of commercial and management experience and previously held various developmental and management roles in the banking, fishing, transport and logistics sectors. He said that he was looking forward to this new challenge of steering the Corridor Group in the interim and explained that he maintains a high level of performance driven by an inherent urge to make tangible contribution towards the improvement of business ideals. "Resultantly, I am humbled by the confidence bestowed on me by our board to lead the group during this exciting period as we continue to position Namibia as the preferred gateway for trade in southern Africa." A core focus for him during the period of transition would be ongoing stakeholder engagements, whilst at the same time enhancing the WBCG business development activities through its regional offices to ensure the organisation remains steadfast to its core mandate, of attracting volumes to the corridors. Smith is currently serving on the board of Roads Authority as well as the Namibia Trade Forum. He is also a member of the steering committee of the National Logistics Master Plan, the technical committee of the National Single Window Project and was the deputy chair for the Transport Thematic Working Group responsible for the development of the current National Development Plan 5.

Hopes kept alive to restore tin mining at Uis Continued from Page 1 Erwin Leuschner The company AfriTin Mining Ltd. still clings to hopes of re-opening the Uis tin mine located in the Erongo region, some 125km east of Henties Bay. Despite shares for the AIM listed company continuing to plummet the re-opening of the mine could provide a significant economic boost for the town and also for Erongo. The company, listed on London's junior market, announced in January that it had, through its Namibian subsidiary, Dawnmin Africa Investments (Pty) Ltd, purchased the entire front end crushing component for the processing circuit of the plant. The equipment includes a jaw crusher, three cone crushers, stacking and conveying equipment and the electrical switchgear. AfriTin has in the meantime appointed Crushplant & Utility Spares CC, a Namibian based engineering firm, specialising in the construction and installation of crushing equipment to match the equipment to the required specifications and associated installation at mine site. AfriTin has the goal of commercial production from the Uis tin mine later in 2018. However, this goal might be easier said than done. AfriTin de-merged from fellow Aim-listed miner Bushveld Minerals with the aim of raising between £2 million and £6 million to put the mine, which has been out of production since 1990, back into production. Since 9 November 2017, when AfriTin listed on the stock exchange, shares have been on a downward spiral, dropping from 3.95 pence to 2.20 pence (yesterday). The company wishes to mine the metal as tin is commonly used in solder for electronics. Initially it announced to produce 5,000 tons of tin concentrate over the next five years.

and two days are just too long. There are no main draw-card features, too much of the usual shop merchandise on offer, and generally the fair is regulated and controlled in excess. Swakopmund has evolved and several Christmas Fairs were organised, very successfully, so perhaps it is time for a rethink of this traditional fair.... now called 'Summer Fair' but who is kidding who? The Christmas Fair was renamed the 'Summer Fair' for reasons we can guess at, but its timing and its history make it the official Swakopmund Christmas Fair.This is the year of reckoning, we are told. Hopefully it means that the authorities will actually make their presence known and be visible. In that case we would not have cars for sale parked across pavements with total disregard for general access, taxis crossing streets before the lights change, motorbikes blasting down the street with loud exhausts and the constant sight of people urinating at the side of the road, in public view. This sight, in particular has become more and more frequent... confirming that at best we are a third-world country. The battle against the deviously, suspiciously and underhand passing of the relaxation of height restriction law continues. The Swakopmund Residents Association, supported by many Swakopmund residents, continues to question and examine the way in which this law was mysteriously approved, accepted and passed by our councillors. Questions regarding integrity and capability are being asked of our municipal leaders and when we ask for meetings and answers we are made assurances, but are then delayed and avoided as deadlines come and go. As Shakespeare wrote, so long ago...”There is something rotten in the state of Denmark.” Swakopmunders, the battle continues, and our committee has taken this issue much higher than our unreliable and dubious councillors. Thankfully, the Aesthetics Committee has rejected the design of the intended building, Namport has refused any building height which interferes with the beam of the lighthouse and the Ministry of Presidential Affairs has also objected and asked Council to "intervene and put on hold until the matter is properly addressed with all stake holders.” Without doubt alternative and underhand plans continue in the making, so we cannot relax.There are those who say that our protest stands in the way of progress. The truth is we do not mind higher buildings at all, and we welcome progress, but with intelligent design. Throughout the world it has been proven that high-rise buildings along a sea front or view site, damage the value of any development behind them. The businesses or apartment blocks at the back of these tall buildings lose light, become restricted and unappealing and investments and potential are lost. These areas become run-down and seedy, rentals fall, living standards become low, and in time, run-down areas develop. This is the danger that we face. This is a fact in Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, just to name some obvious examples Swakopmund is a popular tourist attraction, loved for its international atmosphere, its charming beauty and its ease of living. Tourism is our major income source. Why would we allow greedy developers and uninformed, unreliable municipality officials to destroy that? If a developer wants to invest in a great sea view with a high-rise building, we have no objection to such a development on the outer edge of our town, where the sea views will be just as wonderful. This is not the time for apathy regarding this problem, as no doubt other opportunists will try for high-rise buildings in other central town areas and slowly but steadily, the attractiveness and appeal of our town will be lost. Ask yourself...would you like your home or business to be behind one of these buildings? We closed our petition once we had passed the total of two thousand signatures as we wanted it handed in before the yearend, but we are constantly asked for it to be re-opened as people become more aware of the consequences of this failure in common sense and honesty.

Tamariskia residents are “no show� at Nampol meeting Sharlien Tjambari

A scheduled meeting by members of the police with residents of Tamariskia in Swakopmund had to be postponed on Sunday, after not a single member of the public turned out for the event. The meeting, which was scheduled to take place at the Atlantic Junior Secondary School, was to inform residents of the situation with regard to crime in Tamariskia. Constable Kaujova, the community liaison officer at the Mondesa police station, is therefore [once again] calling upon all residents of Tamariskia to attend this very important and educative meeting, relating to information on common crimes in Tamariskia such as housebreaking, theft, domestic violence and other matters affecting the community. Due to the "no show" by the community on Sunday, 11 February the meeting is postponed to 22 February. The meeting will take place at 18:00 at the Atlantic Junior Secondary School hall. "I am pleading and urging everyone to please find time in their busy schedule to attend this very important meeting", said Kaujova. The lack of interest by the residents whenever NamPol calls on community members to attend this type of meetings is nothing new and sadly quite common. Residents turn a blind eye and do not see the benefits of such meetings. namib times representatives attending these meetings in the past has witnessed several of these meetings postponed as literally not a single member of the public were present.

Swakopmund Neighborhood Watch looks back at successful season of law enforcement Erwin Leuschner The Swakopmund Neighborhood Watch (SNW) is looking back on a successful holiday season with regard to law enforcement activities. Fewer incidents of crime were reported compared to the same time period the previous year.

“The season were busier than the previous one, but overall there were less drama. Yet, there were many cases of driving under the influence, remarked Dewald Swart of SNW. Right from the onset of the holiday season members of the neighborhood watch, in particular reservists, were active every day and night, patrolling the streets together with members of the police. “Visitors quickly realised there was a zero tolerance for criminal or unruly behavior, Swart explained. Of particular concern to the Neighborhood Watch was the so-called Klipjetty, which members had to patrol every night. The visibility of member of the Neighborhood Watch, coupled with their quick response proved successful: The culprits who robbed a tourist of her iPad on the beach were quickly apprehended and were very soon thereafter sentenced to a jail term by the court. Despite the holiday season now of the distant past, the Neighborhood Watch has still been very busy. “We noticed an increase

in cases of housebreaking again”, Swart said. Most of the cases were reported in the suburb of Ocean View. “We really encourage residents to install beams and turn their alarm systems on at night. It happens time again that residents, who do have alarms, do not activate it by night or when they leave their homes”, he said. As it has been the case in the past, burglars and thieves target houses which have windows with an aluminium frame. “The culprits can quickly remove the window by using a screwdriver. (Therefore, the need for burglar bars or electronic surveillance mechanisms like alarm systems and beams”, he said. In most cases the occupants only realise they were victim of a burglary the next day when they wake up. “The thieves usually target laptops, cash and cellphones. We also noticed they do not take iPhones anymore, as it can be traced”, he explained. Swart encourages residents to note down the “IMEI” code in their phones. With this code number the phone can be traced, even if a new SIM card has been inserted.

anticipated this” Erwin Leuschner

Erongo Regional Councillor Juuso Kambueshe was released on bail to the tune of N$50 000 on Thursday afternoon, after he appeared on charges of fraud and theft in the Swakopmund magistrates court. His next appearance is scheduled for 22 February in the Katutura Magistrates Court in Windhoek. A background and details of the charges brought against this high-ranking coastal politician remain vague. The charge sheet only contains the two counts as well as the transfer order for the matter to be moved to the Katutura magistrates court. Kambueshe appeared on a J50 warrant of arrest which was issued by a Windhoek Magistrates on 13 September 2017. According to the warrant of arrest, Kambueshe faces 21 charges of fraud and one count of theft, which he is alleged to have committed between November 2013 and November 2015. Kambueshe was still serving as mayor of Swakopmund during that time. After serving as mayor for three years, he moved up on the political ladder and since has been the Swakopmund constituency councilor for the Erongo Regional Council. The criminal charges stem from a civil matter between Kambueshe and his former business partners: Chinese nationals Cheng-Yuan Lee, Cheng Mei-Jane Lee, Tien-Po Huang and Hsiao-Yin Sung. It concerns a property deal at Swakopmund. The civil matter has been dragging on in the High Court of Namibia for several years already. According to a Judgement in the civil matter, the case revolves around a property (Erf 2827) measuring 10 000 square meters, located in Mondesa. Kambueshe is alleged to have sold his total member's interest to the above-mentioned Chinese businessmen for N$7.3 million. The amount was later reduced by an addendum to the sales contract. The Chinese allegedly paid an amount of about N$2.5 million as a 20% The transfer of the property never took place. In October 2017, a Judgment was delivered in the High Court of Namibia in which it was ordered Kambueshe repay the amount plus interest amounting to about N$5 million – [the same amount for which he is facing criminal charges]. "I anticipated this (…) I was made aware to either settle the civil matter in their (complainants) favor or face criminal charges. They have made good on that threat", Kambueshe said as he addressed the court on Thursday. He added that they (the Chinese businessmen) "extended threats to tarnish my name as I am a politician by career". Kambueshe did not have a lawyer present, but said he was "surprised" when bail was granted to the tune of N$50 000. "The high bail amount appears to be tantamount to a punishment (…) Even my salary doesn't even make up for that amount", he said. He requested Magistrate Jorina Jagger to reduce the bail amount. Jagger said a reduced bail amount cannot be addressed in the Swakopmund magistrates court, as it is under Windhoek's magisterial jurisdiction and can therefore only be addressed in Windhoek. "I cooperated fully and it appears that the State is punishing me for cooperating", Kambueshe replied. Adding: "I was under the impression that this is merely an investigation". The state was represented by prosecutor Tuaundamuje Katjiundu.
