SLOW PACE GIANT: An abnormal load vehicle with its extra heavy load en route to the Tsumeb Copper Mine from Walvis Bay, caused some disruption to the flow of traffic on the B2 on Wednesday morning. Walvis Bay Plant & Tool Hire was tasked with transporting the massive cargo, a Hot Re-heat Exchanger (1980 (L) x 516(W) x 555 (H) cm) with a gross weight of 74 860 kg constructed by Mechaniza Y Fabricaciones South Africa to be used at the Namibian Custom Smelters Sulphuric Acid plant. Erongo Red and Nampower officials were called in for advice after the truck crossed the bridge and fears emerged that the metallic load might attract the electricity current flowing through the high-power supply cables running above and across the road. After much deliberation they resolved that it would be the best to have the power supply completely switched off in order for the truck to proceed. According to the driver of the truck he will reach his destination today should all go accordingly. Photo by Otis Finck

A chain collision involving a taxi (Toyota Corolla N 10287 WB), a Land Cruiser (N 152888 W) and a bakkie (N 5551 WB) occurred in the vicinity of the Kuisebmond bridge on Tuesday around 19:00. The accident disrupted the flow of traffic for approximately one hour. No serious injuries were recorded. Medical assistance arrived at the scene and treated the passengers of the taxi for shock. According to a tow-in truck operator rush hour accidents are becoming a regular occurrence in this area. He urged drivers to be patient and to be alert when driving.

The Narraville Primary School learner was apparently crossing the road, on her way home from school when she landed in front of a Land Rover (N 20273 WB). The St Gabriel Community Ambulance Trust arrived at the scene and treated the girl who sustained head injuries and a leg fracture. She was transported to the Walvis Bay State Hospital for further medical treatment. The details about what exactly happened are not known. The newspaper tried to contact the driver of the Land Rover to get her version of what led to the accident, but she was not available for comment. The incident occurred in the proximity of the pedestrian crossing where a huge sign warns approaching motorists of children crossing the road at that particular location. The warning traffic signs and pedestrian crossing were placed there due to previous accidents involving school children.

Experienced maritime officers without work Jade McClune Word among sea-going personnel is that in future there will have to be at least one Namibian officer for every foreign officer on board vessels fishing in Namibian waters. An officers' union, consisting of at least 10 captains, has been in negotiations with the government and industry leaders about the concerns of Namibian captains and officers, many of whom have been stranded without work for years. The officers are aggrieved that vessels fishing in Namibian waters continue to use foreign captains, apparently at the expense of qualified local people. Mr Percy Rinquest, who has been spearheading the formation of the Skippers' Union, said a significant number of officers graduate from the Namibia Maritime and Fishing Institute (NAMFI) every year, but many of them end up without work.

His group has now been registered and intends to take up these concerns with the government and local employers. He says that they will first have to set up the basic office and communication infrastructure though, before they can take on bigger tasks. Another experienced skipper who has been out of work for a number of years, also asked why scores of new officers are being trained every year, while there are many experienced maritime officers sitting at home without jobs. He supported the move towards a “one-to-one policy” for foreign and local officers. The Namibia Maritime and Fishing Institute (NAMFI) said though that they are not aware of

any regulations or moves towards implementing a “one-to-one policy” for foreign and Namibian officers at sea, a spokesperson said yesterday. The NAMFI spokesperson explained that although the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources has a policy of “Namibianisation of the fleet to the highest level”, he could not confirm whether any such 'one-to-one' employment policy is under discussion. NAMFI also said they cannot release any statistics about the number of graduates they produce annually without the prior approval of their director, who happens to be in Cape Town at the moment. Regarding the number of Namibian officers on vessels in Namibian waters, Mr Patrick Silesebo of the Department of Safety and Inspections in the Directorate of Maritime Affairs said that “It all depends on the manning requirements of the vessel and the local capacity.” He was also not aware of any new regulations limiting the number of foreign officers allowed on vessels in local waters. Asked for comment, Mr Rinquest said that according to an informal survey conducted by his group there are more than 800 qualified maritime officers at the coast and many of these are jobless at present. The officers' association has been in negotiation with the Ministry of Fisheries over the problem of the high levels of joblessness among seagoing personnel at the coast, as well as possible quota allocations for local fishermen, he said. Mr Rinquest appealed to local fishing companies and rights holders to assist the officers' association with donations to help them set up their office in Walvis Bay. A further meeting between the skippers' association and the ministry, scheduled for April, is expected to produce tangible results.

READY TO SERVE: De Duine Secondary school introduced members of their Learners Representatives Committee (LRC) recently. The primary goal of the LRC for 2014 is to bring the school's discipline to a high standard. Many times people judge a school by the behaviour of only a few individuals. The LRC foresee a better De Duine, derived from the fact that they are determined to work together as a team. They are determined to change the attitude of the learners and by so doing, will make a difference at school specifically and the community at large. The theme for the year is, “Acquire a habit of striving for success and success will become a habit”. According to members of the LRC best things happen to those who know how to make the best of how things work out. LRC 2014 : Head girl: Izane Van der Schuur. Head boy: Pius Samuel.

Swakopmund does have a heart Last Saturday residents of Swakopmund made history by taking part in the first nationwide “Walk for the love of dogs” hosted by the Have-a-Heart Project. The Walk for the love of dogs was a fantastic success. A whopping 68 people with 68 dogs took part in our fun walk for dogs! From the smallest dog to the biggest dog you have ever seen. Even puppies joined in on the fun. Participants without a canine companion also took part, and each dog entered received a complimentary bandanna. The dogs had a blast getting to know other doggies! Tails were wagging with joy all over the place. The towns who participated in this event were Swakopmund, Windhoek, Outjo, Grootfontein and Lüderitz on 8 February and Otjiwarongo and Tsumeb will be follow on 15 February. The Havea-Heart Project provides the opportunity for dog and cat owners in low- and no income communities to have their pets spayed and neutered for free. In that way the overpopulation and quantity of stray animals in the streets can be controlled in a different way to putting them down. For more information about the Have-a-Heart project, please visit our website at www.have-aheartspayandneuterproject.com.

Enjoying the walk

Around 60 appointed dog and cat owners will be able to make use of this wonderful opportunity on the 2nd and 3rd of May 2014 during The Have-aHeart Project's nationwide “Spayathon”. The funds raised by the wonderful attendance of the Swakopmund community at the Walk for the love of dogs will be put to use during this spayathon. Other ways that the project are raising funds are to sell t-shirts and raffle tickets. These can be purchased from Lynn at the West Coast Radio office. The organisers expressed their gratitude to everybody who helped to raise funds for the less privileged, all the dogs who supported their owners in the walk, Namib Films who sponsored water for all 2 and 4 legged buddies and West Coast FM. The Have-a-heart Foundation is a non-profit organisation registered with the Ministry of Trade and Industry of Namibia, offering free spay and neuter services and vaccinations for animals in low income communities, mostly townships. The project started in Outjo and is looking to expand to Otjiwarongo, Kalkfeld, Windhoek and Rehoboth in September 2013. Every animal has the right to a happy and healthy life and that being poor or living in Africa is not an excuse for leaving animals to suffer. One of the main aims of the project is to make a difference in the amount of stray animals on the streets of the townships. Stray animals are a public nuisance, soiling parks and streets, ruining shrubbery, creating noise and other disturbances. As a potential source of rabies and other less serious diseases, they are a public health hazard. The goals for this foundation are to help advance public education in all aspects of animal care and protection. To help convince as many responsible owners to spay and neuter their pets that we possibly can. To help provide needy animals with necessary treatment and care. To help the Outjo Municipality re-install the license system and maintain this system.

Moordverdagtes vry na byna 3 jaar agter tralies Marshallino Beukes

Moordverdagtes, Ludwig Eiseb en Isak Kheiseb, is op aanklagte van moord, diefstal en dwarsboming van die gereg deur die Prokureur-Generaal vrygespreek, nadat hulle vir 2 jaar en 9 maande sonder borg in die gevangenis was. Die twee is gearresteer nadat die oorskot van Milka Awises (34), gedurende April 2011, op die strand tussen Swakopmund en Hentesbaai uitgespoel het. 'n Gebrek aan forensiese getuienis het tot die PG se uitspraak gelei. 'n Baie ongelukkige Eiseb het die kantoor van die Namib Times, kort na sy ontslag, besoek en weereens sy onskuld in die saak beklemtoon. “Wat my die seerste maak is die feit dat die gemeenskap en selfs my drie kinders (7;10;14) my nou as 'n moordenaar en misdadiger aansien”, het hy gesê. 'n Skrywe in Eiseb se besit dui aan dat hy op 29 Februarie 2012 onskuldig op die klagte gepleit het en dat die PG se beslissing alreeds vanaf daardie datum hangend was. Volgens hom het hy die betrokke nag die oorledene by 'n shebeen ontmoet, waar sy hom gevra het om 'n drankie te koop. Hy het blykbaar 'n bottel drank gekoop, wat hulle saam geniet het. “Ons het hierna na haar woning in DRC gegaan, waar ek haar lewend gelos het”, dui hy aan. Eiseb voer aan dat hy die volgende oggend 'n privaat werkie met 'n familielid gaan doen het en met sy betaling na Awises se woonplek gegaan het, want hy wou skynbaar vir haar “'n bier of iets” gaan koop. Met sy aankoms daar was die polisie egter teenwoordig en is hy in hegtenis geneem. Volgens hom het hy op daardie stadium van geen sout of water geweet van die moord nie. Die ander verdagte, Kheiseb, se voertuig spoor is blykbaar by die toneel, waar haar liggaam gevind is, waargeneem. “Drie jaar van my lewe is onskuldig van my weggeneem en dit is iets wat niemand ooit aan my terug kan gee nie”, het hy aan die koerant, in 'n bitter en hartseer stem genoem. Eiseb, wat verlig en verheug is dat die saak teen hom teruggetrek is, noem dat sy grootste wens is dat geregtigheid sal geskied en dat sy goeie naam in die gemeenskap herstel sal word.

Driving school boss angers clients Marshallino Beukes Angry want-to-be vehicle drivers contacted the newspaper yesterday in order to complain about a certain driving school in Swakopmund, which supposedly scammed them out of their money. According to one of the complainants, they registered during October last year at “Abundance Driving School”, in order to study for their learner's licenses. They were requested by the owner, one “Alfons”, to pay a fee of N$200 per person in advance. The client noted that only five students registered at the time and the owner allegedly told them that he needed ten students before commencing. According to the source he promised them of having five other people who were interested and as soon as they register, classes will commence. On the day when classes were supposed to start, the owner apparently informed the five students, who already paid their

registration fees, that he did not get a venue yet and also that the other five have pulled out. He supposedly asked them to see if they could find more students, in order for the classes to kick off. Since then they did not hear from him and one of the students contacted Mr Alfons during last month. According to him, they were told the classes would start on Monday, 20 January, but up to date nothing happened. The students then asked him to refund their money, whereafter he allegedly promised to pay it back on 10 February, which also never happened. Mr Alfons’ mobile number seems to be switched off, after the newspaper tried to contact him.

Who will shield us? Mavourlene Gaes I am deeply saddened by the fact that almost every day a woman somewhere in Namibia either gets raped or murdered in some gruesome way. In a previous opinion piece I wrote that we should forgive one another, no matter how difficult, but how do you forgive someone that has not asked for forgiveness? Someone who is not remorseful over the cruel act or acts they have done? The worst and most confusing part of all these killings is that the men committing these horrifying acts are in most cases the men they trusted. There have been numerous stories and crime reports in the local media of cases where girls were raped by their fathers. There have also been plenty of stories about women across Namibia viciously murdered by their boyfriends and husbands; the very same men that are supposed to protect them. In the south, a woman is said to have been raped and murdered by her son in February. He later committed suicide by hanging himself from a tree. In a another recent case, a woman from the Kavango region is said to have been stabbed with a spear in the chest by her uncle, after they had an argument over leaves from an indigenous tree. The woman was allegedly trying to use the leaves to cook. She died on the spot. As a woman, who do we go to for protection? So many men in our society have become so violent. A father, who is supposed to make sure that bad people don't touch his little girl, turns around and molests the very same girl-child that he was supposed to protect. Who can we trust if the sons we give birth to can turn around and rape and kill their own mothers. Why, after we spent all that time looking after and caring for them? Why, after we stood by them, even knowing in our hearts that our sons are troubled human beings? But what can I do? “He is my child,” we say. What is to be done about the violence?

Copper worth 2.5 million vanishes into thin air Marshallino Beukes

A consignment of copper worth N$2.5 million disappeared while being transported from Zambia to Walvis Bay harbour. The well-known Swakopmund-based transport company, Van der Walt Transport, is now offering a N$10 000 reward for any information which will lead to the recovery of the missing 30 tonnes of copper, which were en route from the Zambian Copperbelt region, when it disappeared. According to the owner of Van der Walt Transport, Mr André van der Walt, one of their drivers, Mr Wilbard Malapi (44), was supposed to offload the consignment at the harbour in Walvis Bay last Friday, but by Monday, when Malapi did not show up for work, fellow workers inspected the truck and found it was completely empty. Van der Walt said that the staff had been under the impression that the cargo had already been

offloaded, because the truck was parked all weekend at the company's designated parking area within the harbour. Malapi had apparently asked to take the weekend off and they have not been able to contact him since. The suspicion is that the cargo got lost or transferred somewhere on the way between Katima Mulilo and Walvis Bay. “This is the first time that anything like this has happened in the company and this incident should count as a warning sign for other transport companies,” Mr Van der Walt noted. Members of the public with information regarding Wilbard Malapi's whereabouts or the missing cargo are urged to contact Bertie (Operations) at 0811286148, or Mr Van Schalkwyk (PI) at 0811279086, or the Walvis Bay police station.

Opinion: Fishing Quotas The way fishing quotas are allocated is causing much hardship, inequality and hunger in our communities, while a few fat cats get to play “who wants to be a millionaire?” with the precious resources of the nation. The way Namibia's marine resources are being plundered is truly a national disgrace. Corruption, nepotism, favouritism are strongly suspected. Politicians from far-away regions are bickering, fighting and suing each other over fishing quotas, as if they have some special entitlement to the wealth and resources of the sea, but able seamen who have been fishing here for decades will tell you that they are completely in the dark as to how these rights are awarded. Fishing rights are currently used as part of a system of political patronage; as a means to reward loyal friends and to punish political enemies. Some have become instant millionaires by selling their rights without as much as ever catching a single fish. They simply sell their quota to the highest bidder and wallah… instant wealth and fame. Instead of enriching a few greedy individuals, in future only bona fide community organisations and trusts should be allowed to apply for fishing rights on behalf of certain sections of society. For example, all the schools in the region can form a Schools Trust. The Trust can then apply for a quota and use the millions of dollars they get in return to upgrade, renovate and maintain their school facilities without having to stand with a begging bowl in front of the newly-made millionaires. The same goes for the youth and the elderly; we should set up a Regional Pensioners Trust, which can apply and use the funds to build and maintain pensioners' homes and facilities. Equally, a hospitals trust, a women's trust, a housing trust, and other community-based (not-for-profit organisations) should be granted fishing rights to achieve definite social goals, such as fighting homelessness, countering malnutrition, providing places of safety for women and children, facilities for the youth. We produce so much fish it is a total disgrace that people can starve in this country; that children, pensioners, and poor people are dying of hunger while we export thousands of tonnes of protein

every week. It is time to abolish the old and unfair system of giving fishing rights to private individuals. The process is not transparent. If it was, the ministry would have already made public the full list of current fishing rights holders. It is a great shame that the ordinary people in this country do not really benefit from our rich resources of the sea. We produce protein mainly for export, while our own people are going hungry. For argument's sake, if the horse mackerel catch for the year was divided equally among all Namibian citizens, each person would get around 450kg of fish; not to mention hake, maarsbanker, monk and all the other 'commercial catches'. It is not just about access to fish, but moreover it is about the right to fish. A right, which has been treated as a special privilege reserved for the lucky few. But there is no transparency in the allocation of these rights. The process is mired in controversy and the suspicion is widespread that fishing rights, like mining and exploration licenses, are used as a means of rewarding the most loyal supporters of the ruling party. Namibia is one of the countries with the greatest income inequality in the world. The way that fishing rights are currently allocated is actually deepening the crisis of inequality, by elevating a few privileged people to the realms of opulence and splendour, while condemning the masses to a life of grinding poverty, of perpetually empty and aching stomachs. Through a mechanism called “transfer pricing” many of these fishing companies also find clever ways to avoid paying tax in Namibia by selling the fish caught here to their own subsidiaries abroad at a very low price and then declaring that they made no (or little) taxable profits here. Namibia is not really a poor country. It is very rich in resources, but our policies are so very poor that they can only produce poor people and poor outcomes.

Namport donates N$350 000 to help save seabirds The Namibia Nature Foundation (NNF) announced this week that Namport has agreed to fund a programme to help reduce the bycatch of birds by fishing vessels offshore Namibia. The funds will also be used to provide employment opportunities for a women's group in Walvis Bay. Under the funding agreement Namport will support the development of a small market women's empowerment group that will manufacture and supply Tori Lines (bird scaring lines) to the local fishing industry. The Tori Lines are commonly used by trawl and longline fisheries operating out of Walvis Bay and Lüderitz. The NNF said that the Tori Lines help prevent seabirds from grabbing for baited hooks and getting trapped in nets, or flying into warp cables, which often results in the injury or death of seabirds. The project has come about partly through the work of the Albatross Task Force in

Namibia, a partnership between the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and BirdLife, Birdlife International and NNF. The Albatross Task Force is a global team of specialist observers working with the fishing industry in the key albatross and petrel foraging range at-sea and onshore. The Task Force works to establish seabird by-catch estimates and to develop methods to minimise incidental mortality of seabirds in longline and trawl fisheries. In Namibia, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and BirdLife International works with the NNF and the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources to achieve this.

The views and opinions expressed on this page are not necessarily those of the Namib Times. We do encourage and value the participation of our readers, but we cannot publish any libellous letters. Die sienings en menings wat op die blad verskyn is nie noodwendig die van die Namib Times nie. Hoewel ons die deelname van ons lesers op die forum aanmoedig en waardeer, kan ons nie lasterlike briewe publiseer nie.

Be the Change You Want to See on Our Roads in 2014 The Department of Transport recently released the official road death toll figures of 1376 fatalities for the period 1 December 2013 to 7 January 2014 a sobering reminder that the festive season isn't always so festive for everyone. So as we bid January goodbye and our resolutions with it, perhaps it's time we made some road resolutions instead. The pros at Tiger Wheel & Tyre put their heads together and came up with these suggestions to inspire you in making your own 2014 road resolutions: 1. I Will Not Text and Drive: This is the most dangerous distracted driving activity of all. The minimum amount of time that your eyes are off the road while testing is 4.6 seconds, so if you're testing while driving at a speed of 88km/h you will drive more than the length of a soccer field with your eyes off the road! That's an unaccept a b l e r i s k . We suggest making “It can wait!” your mantra and if it really can't, pull over to a safe spot

before texting. 2. I Will Indicate: The fact that indicators are standard and not optional equipment on a vehicle should be a dead giveaway as to their importance. We suggest you start indicating at least 30m before turning, to give the driver behind you the chance to slow down. With so many drivers choosing not to indicate, it's easy to get sucked into their game. Resist the temptation and set a good example instead. It may become contagious. 3. I Will Check My Tyre Tread & Pressure: Tyres are like the heels on shoes, you usually don't know they're wearing down until they're worn through, but while a worn heel may throw you off balance, a worn out tyre could blow and cost you more than

your dignity. So check your tread, or have a professional do it for you, to ensure there is always at least 1mm remaining tread around the circumference of the tyre, and while you're at it, check the tyre pressure too. Driving with underinflated tyres can cause them to wear out sooner, costing you money and compromising your safety. 4. I Will Exercise Tolerance and Manners: Take a deep breath when the grandma ahead slows to 20km/h and brakes for no reason and exhale slowly as that boy racer weaves around you. Flying into a blind rage will only distract you, raise your blood pressure and compromise your decision-making ability.

There will always be road hogs and they will always frustrate you. So, to paraphrase the great Mahatma Ghandi, be the change you want to see on the road. Drive courteously, exercise tolerance and show gratitude to other courteous drivers. You may start a trend 5. I Will Stay Awake, Alert and Alive: A moving car is a moving missile, which is to say that driving is a huge responsibility. You don't want to be responsible for causing an accident any more than you want to be the victim of one. So resolve not to drive when you're drowsy or under the influence and when you do drive, to give it your full attention.

Mwatunga welcomed back to Swapo Following a report on the Swapo Exco meeting on Saturday, Mr Mwatunga (pictured on the right) contacted the Namib Times to say that the headline was slightly misleading as he was never expelled from the Swapo party, but remained a member throughout the period of his suspension. We apologise for any misconception that may have arisen.

Namib Times Facebook Reader’s Comments

vs EBH employee faces disciplinary investigation after racist allegations According to a media report an employee of the Elgin Brown and Hamer (EBH) group of companies alleges that she was wrongfully suspended after she accused her superior of using the `K-word` in reference to her. Tunino R Haskell Here we go again, Black vs. White! I'm so glad I am "Kallit". Live together in harmony "One Nation" Yvonne Ndeshi Nghilumbwa Black vs. white will always b there... I so don't see it going away because even most blacks gives preference to a white than a fellow black person... so... let the labour law take its course. Clifford De Witt That time should be history, but still we see people that want authority above others and arguing about hopeless topics than rather making a change!! Remember If you want to see a change in the world then start by changing yourself! Mike Rabie I smell a lot of racial sensationalism here, we live in a time where social media comment sections are riddled with racist, homophobic and xenophobic remarks, some of them way more graphic and horrible then what I read in this article. My point... If you are going to run a article about one human being calling another human being something, make it a country wide article about whatever "ism" you choose with actual informed results, statistics and feedback, not this alleged bulls**t, really this article is more about engaging new readers and growing a reader base than unveiling the unjust...the problem is by all the comments everyone is leaving they succeeded in getting you to interact on one of their articles. The article in question here is still about two people and only two people, not about racism's effect, product or constant evolution as hate crimes throughout a whole country and the world, that is what I want to see in a article, not a squabble between two co-workers, in the grand scheme of things this article is a "he said she said" sensationalist piece. maybe you should read the local news out of a global perspective not just out of a emotional point of view. Selenda Haubas Mr Rabie you clearly did not read the 1st article about this story, did you? If you wana see sensational talk go read the other newspaper article that is completely only about one side. This article here explained it from another angle that is a lot clearer. This one has more facts than the other newspaper that already wrote it and only showed 1 side. Michael Brink I once faced a disciplinary hearing because I used the word 'Bulls**t' and this was the correct thing to do. And I apologized for it. No profanity or insulting speech of any form is acceptable in the workplace. It undermines professionalism, respect and the company itself. Nelao Kim Usiku does being booked off by a doctor prohibit anyone from going to eat out at a restaurant? 24 years after independence and we still have people that make such racial remarks? I beg to differ with your opinion, being booked off does not necessarily means you have to be confined to your bed to the extent that you cannot drive, go to town. It all just depend on the severity of your illness. Werner Ahrens If you are sick to the

extent where you need to be booked off by a doctor, you should be in bed at home recovering, if you can sit at a restaurant... then you can sit at the office. Milton Bryan Augumeb Guys we need change in this country and we can only achieve that if we work together, we all are Namibian black or white which means proving to other that you better than them will not get us as a nation anywhere. Valencia Dixon 24 years of Independence, our ancestors blood was shed for our freedom, to live, work, eat and enjoy our country with all its riches and somehow our kindness is still mistaken for weakness. Be grateful that our elders taught us how to forgive but don't pressure our youth to revolt!! Lets remain fair to each other! Edith Bernard Namibia belongs to allllll of us... never mind our colour! Walter Hays The race card is the easiest one ever pulled or played in the last 20 years and i have seen it happen time and again, people play fair and own up to your faults. Christopher Reyneke Why don't all of you just meet at a place.....sort each other out! Grow up and try to set a example for the younger ones. I enjoy this country very much with all it's people. Why spoil it? Ndeshi Josef If I comment with my right mind I will be taken to court with her . Because Yes some of u here know what I will say that has already been said! I'm just going to say this! Namibia is free now! Those kind of acts are not welcome here.. Johan van der Westhuizen Namibia is for black people. My word Namibia is for all people. Don't judge before you know the correct version. If he is guilty let him pay for his remarks. Valencia Dixon This is bad, seriously this is bad, this is why Robert Mugabe does what he does! Mikail Mojao Tjimune Before we go the Mugabe route.........amen. Milly Marsha Orren Point is, she was victimized. it happens a lot, and it's wrong! Lana Da Costa Louw We should start taking responsibility for our actions, think before you say something.... Cindy Herbst Mather Tjimuine Vahaneuiye Were do you want me to go? I was born in this country? People please. .. we are all Namibians. Milton Bryan Augumeb Werner Salpeter no one will label you a racist as long as you don't make racist remark. Let's wait and see what the outcome is of the hearing. Zuleiga Abader Welcome to Walvis Bay! Not surprised! The above happens daily as I've witnessed - unfortunately the ones being done to has no power to complain for this very reason! Silva Newaka This is not about black, white or coloured but being discriminated at work. It can happen to everyone... Johan van der Westhuizen The both should be suspended until the hearing is done. It's her word against his word.

All the respective award winners

Top accolade awarded to Namibian company Advantage Y&R, Windhoek's largest advertising agency, scored another hit, this time of international renown. They carried off the Grand Prix awarded by the Epica organisation, which organises a competition each year for advertising agencies worldwide. Namibia won the overall print category. Truda Meaden, the MD of Advantage Y&R, and Patrick Held, its creative director, travelled to New Delhi, India, to attend a glittering 2014 awards ceremony and to receive the crystal trophy. Patrick Held on collecting the award quoted an ancient Roman saying “Ex Africa semper aliquid novi! Out of Africa there is always something new!” “This award, as well as other recent awards achieved at the SA Loeries and the D&AD confirms that we, as a Namibian advertising agency, are fully capable of work that is creative, technical and effective for our clients. Work that stands proudly on its own feet and competes with any in the world.” says Truda Meaden. “Advantage Y&R furthermore, in its staffing complement of 30 people, conforms fully to affirmative action objectives and offers 'sky is the limit” career opportunities to talented Namibians, who wish to make their way in this exciting 'brand building' and 'advertising' industry.” The grand prix from Namibia's Advantage Y&R shows travel books and souvenirs of adven-

turous journeys arranged on a bookshelf in the shape of the Land Rover Discovery 90, instantly conveying its message in any language that the Land Rover is the vehicle synonymous with adventure travel without any caption being needed. Jury president International Advertising Awards, François Kermoal commented: “This beautiful image touches the imagination and makes you dream, which should be the aim of all advertising. And of course it captures the spirit of Land Rover without showing the product.” The Epica awards were created in 1987. Having originally focused on the Europe, Middle East and Africa region exclusively, the awards became global in 2012. Epica's aim is to reward outstanding creativity and help communication agencies, film production companies, media consultancies, photographers and design studios to develop their reputations beyond their national borders. Journalists representing the trade press judge the awards; 41 specialist titles and websites from 34 countries were represented on the jury this year. This unique jury guarantees objectivity and widespread coverage of the results.

An der Atlantikküste,in der Namibwüste Das Denken innerhalb einer Gnuherde Laura Fischer ist eine Schülerin der 11. Klasse des Gymnasiums Aspel in Rees. Sie ließ mir folgenden Fragebogen zukommen, weil ihre Lehrkrat für das Fach Englisch gerade das Thema ,Apartheid in Südafrika’’ behandelt. Laura muss innerhalb von vier Wochen die beantworteten Fragebögen verwerten und eine Facharbeit über das Thema schreiben. Sie würde sich über jegliche Beantwortung des Fragebogens freuen. Schicken Sie Ihre Antworten an Arnd.Fischer@ gmx.net Hier nun die Fragen: 1. Wann hast du als Kind zum ersten Mal etwas von Apartheid gehört und von wem? 2. Hattest du damals als Kind Angst vor Schwarzen? 3. Waren die Schwarzen in deinen Augen faul und dumm? 4. Hast du dich mit Schwarzen mal über die Apartheid unterhalten? Vielleicht mit Eurer Maid? Oder war sie auch mal Thema in der Schule, in der Familie oder so? 5. Wenn dit Freunden, Bekannten oder Verwandten aus dem Ausland (USA, Deutschland oder so) zusammen warst – war die Apartheid dann Thema? Wenn ja, wie liefen so Diskussionen ab? 6. Hattest du Bedenken, als die Apartheid beendet werden sollte, dass es Chaos gibt oder noch Schlimmeres? 7. Ist es jetzt für die Schwarzen wirklich besser geworden? Oder für die Weißen schlechter? 8. Hast du irgendein besonderes Erlebnis, das mit der Apartheid, mit Schwarz und Weiß zusammenhängt, das Du gerne erzählen möchtest?

Ein Bekannter, dem ich den Fragebogen zeigte und dessen Meinung ich schätze, schrieb folgenden Kommentar dazu, den ich gerne mit Ihnen teilen möchte, weil er mir gefällt. ,,Die ganze Thematik über Apartheid, eigentlich über jede soziale Thematik, zeigt, dass der Fragensteller/die Fragenstellerin eine Person ist, der/die die Welt nur in Gruppen sehen kann.

14 NAMIB TIMES

14 FEBRUARY 2014

It's time to rock` Madelaine Laubscher

Franco Sivori established a recording studio in Walvis Bay with the aim to form a professional band and in order to prove that Namibia is on par and fully capable of producing the goods with regard to working in the music entertainment industry. “I believe there is depth in a band and a need for people to be entertained with live performances. People are prone to grow tired of music quite easily, but not of a band's originality which make each performance unique.” Sivori is looking for committed, devoted musicians to contact him. “Many times people say that they want to join a band or would like to become a musician, but when they realise the amount of effort and commitment it requires, they drop out. I want serious, passionate and devoted musicians in my band who are not only skilled and talented, but also committed,” he said. According to him capable musicians in Namibia are compelled to move to different countries, such as South Africa, in order to further their experience in the music industry. Franco says he want to stay in Walvis Bay and is out to prove to other countries that Namibians are just as skilled and capable as their counterparts in other countries. “The much loved Juanita Du Plessis is from Namibia, for example. We can accomplish the same, if we are serious enough and devoted to forming a professional band.” Franco was born in Genova in 1955 and

learned music while attending high school. He started making music at the age of 13 and today, 46 years later is still involved in music. That alone serves as ample proof of his passion for music. The first instrument he laid his hands on was the guitar. He gives guitar lessons and is a versatile vocalist as well. “I am not very poetic, nor am I a very good writer, but I am good at sound detail such as background sounds and the producing aspect of recording music and believe I am quite capable of recording professional tracks. According to him Napoleon Bonaparte (Emperor of the French) once said that “music is what tells us that the human race is greater than we realise” and Plato (a well known philosopher) said that “musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.” Confucius (philosopher and teacher) said that “if anyone should desire to know whether a kingdom is well governed, if its morals are good or bad, the quality of its music will furnish the answer.” Sivori says he has a desire to prove all the above-mentioned. “I have performed on

WALVIS BAY

The CD cover of Sivori’s first album numerous occasions and now have my own recording studio at my house where I make professional digital records. My favourite instrument is the lead guitar and my recordings are quite professional and of a high quality,” says Sivori whose repertoire and music genres include international rock, ballads and dance music. He writes his own songs, also performs cover versions of international songs and performed in various well established recreational facilities in Walvis Bay. He has also performed

in various clubs as well as on many ships and has brushed shoulders with well known musicians, one of them being Steve Hofmeyer. Sivori submitted a demo copy of his “Its time to rock” album to Storm Productions. The album contains tracks of Dire Straits, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond and many more, covered by Franco. “I believe that they will be happy with my album. Even though they are extremely busy, I hope that I have made a good impression on them and I am waiting anxiously to hear to hear from them in the

near future.” he says`. It's Time to Rock` is available in store at Namib Radio, for anyone interested in listening to the quality of his work and who would like to brush shoulders with him in the near future with regard to functions, music lessons and digital recording. He is due to perform at the Walvis Bay Yacht Club soon. He invites anyone who is serious and passionate about music to look him up on YouTube under 'Franco Sivori Namibia' or to contact him at francosivori55 @libero.it

this we need to play competitive rugby against the rest of the teams participating” they continued. The coaching duo invited the whole community to become involved and to blow some new life into rugby at the coast. “We can only advance the cause of rugby with the involvement and participation of everybody and all the respective schools” they said. Besser reiterated that any player was welcome to join the club for practice. “We need players to pitch for practice sessions in huge numbers. The coaching staff will work with the available players and we would select the strongest team to represent the club for each game. We will adequately prepare for each game and take our opinion on when they arrive” he said. The club started practicing on 7 January and does so on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 16:30 and had some preseason season gym workouts with Conrad Wagner. A positive sign for the club is the arrival of utility back Quinton Fielding. He returned to Dolphins after a season with Kudus. Flyhalf and centre Mbimbo Mbai also returned to the club after a season with Unam.

READY TO RACE: Athletes in action at least year’s Rössing National Marathon

Rössing National Marathon and Charity Fun Walk The Rio Tinto Rössing Uranium national marathon, 10km Run, Uranium Team Relay and 5km Fun Walk in aid of the Cancer Association of Namibia will take place on Saturday, 15 February at the athletics stadium in Vineta in Swakopmund. The races will start at 07:00 and the Fun Walk at 09:00 at the Vineta stadium. The organisers say that entries from Swakopmund and Windhoek have been flowing in and the event is expected to attract a field of around 100 marathon runners and 150 ten-kilometre runners this year. East-African runners who realise the event's importance as a potential qualifier for the bigger South African marathons later in the year also expressed their interest in the marathon. The record of 2:11:23 by Luketz Swartbooi was set in 1992. This year Rössing offered N$1 000 to the runner that breaks the marathon record, as an added incentive. The first prize in the marathon Men's Open and Ladies Open categories is N$10 000 with development bonuses of N$20 000 also awarded to the Namibian winners of the same event to advance their careers beyond the Rössing event. The theme for 2014 is "Champions maintain their health - Keep up the pace!" The event is held in the spirit of healthy lifestyles and Rössing's commitment to create opportunities for the communities around the mine to be part of its focus on promoting this ideal. The popular 5km Fun Walk in support of cancer sufferers in Namibia follows one of the most scenic routes along the Atlantic Ocean. Walkers of all ages are encouraged to participate and stand

a chance to win a prize during the prize-giving ceremony and lucky draw at 10:00. The fun walk competition categories are; Best costume, Most original hat, Tallest walker, Youngest and oldest walkers and Largest group. The entry fee for the fun walk is N$10. The running events start at 07:00 from the athletics stadium in Vineta. The cut-off time for the marathon is 12:00. Entry fees are N$60 for the marathon (N$100 for international athletes), N$30 for the 10km run (N$50 for international athletes), N$80 per team for the uranium team relay. Registration for the championship takes place at the Vineta athletics stadium on Friday, 14 February, from 18:00 to 21:00.

TEAM DOLPHINS

Dynamic coaching duo for Dolphins Dolphin's Rugby Club held its AGM on 30 January. A new management committee was selected consisting of Calvin Besser (Chairperson), Leon Beukes (Vice Chairperson), Louis Kotzee (Treasurer), Morris Burns (Vice Treasurer), Leonese Bugan (Secretary), Cassifa Abrahams (Vice Secretary), To m m y F o r b e s (PRO), Ralf Bussel (Additional Member).

Former assistant coach Rowhan Besser was named as head coach of Dolphin Rugby Club with Gerrie Kok as his assistant for the 2014 season. It will be Besser's, who played for Dolphins and Kudus as flyhalf and scrumhalf, first coaching assignment. He said that he was well aware about the qualities of the coaches from the other clubs and that he would give his best to achieve success. “The other clubs have top teams and the pressure is on them to maintain their status. We at Dolphins

have to work to get there and I think the fact that we are not well-known as coaches might be an advantage for the team in the long run.” Kok studied rugby at Stellenbosch. He played as a flyhalf for Boland in South Africa and was involved with coaching at various schools and had been involved with Swakopmund Rugby Club upon his return to Namibia. He is well experienced and the Dolphin Management is of the opinion that his wealth of rugby knowledge could com-

pliment Besser in developing the current crop of Dolphin players and take them onto a higher level. Besser and Kok is strategising and putting mechanisms in place to ensure that Dolphins dish up an exciting display with running rugby as foundation in their search for points and the wins needed to get the supporters in numbers to their games and a solid sponsor on board. “This year will be another year in the history of the club. Last season Dolphins competed with two teams in the NRU sanctioned league and finished 9 t h in the Premier League and 8th in the 1st League. The team consists of approximately 40 players with an average age of 23 years. This indicates that the current side is a relative young and developing side. One of the club's strong points is its lethal backline and strong code of discipline being enforced by the new coaching staff. This was evident in the match against Re-

hoboth which Dolphins narrowly lost 3331 in 2013. A lack of experience and depth upfront ultimately cost Dolphins the match against Rehoboth which eventually made it into the finals of the NRU Premier League. “We want to see our community in full force at the rugby field

and some of our priorities include putting structures in place and reviving the game at school level because the youngsters are our team's feeding source, winning our first game of the season and the discipline of our players. The players must realise that the coaches could lay the foun-

dation but they would be required to do the job and build the team via successful performances” said the duo. In addition to that we will strive to win all our home games because we want to make it into the play-offs of the respective Leagues we compete in this year and in order to achieve Continued on Page 31

MAKING STRIDES: Former Orlando Pirates Namibian striker Theophilus 'Junior' Tsowaseb (24) pictured here with Orlando Pirates South Africa chairperson Irwin Khoza and Collin April (Players Agent) signed a three-year deal with South African Premiership giants Orlando Pirates. The 24-year-old confirmed his move and according to his agent Collin April the two clubs have agreed and terms pending his clearance. Tsowaseb joins compatriot and striker Rudolf Bester (currently on loan to Golden Arrows) at the illustrious South African based club which reached the final of last season's Caf Champions League. Tsowaseb, who is blessed with a blistering turn of speed, nifty footwork and a decent shot spent two weeks on trial at the PSL side before the club's technical team took the decision to sign him. The Namibian labelled the opportunity as a big one for him and said he was very happy to be at such a great club.
