Health care workers in grave danger

Namibia’s Covid-19 situation worsens

A total of 1 350 health workers have contracted the novel Coronavirus since the pandemic was first recorded in Namibia in mid-March 2020. Sadly, six of these health workers died of Covid-19, the often fatal form of a Coronavirus infection. These statistics were revealed by Namibia’s health minister, Dr Kalumbi Shangula, on Wednesday during a televised update of the country’s Covid-19 situation. Dr Shangula pointed out the second wave of infections are putting more strain on the country’s medical infrastructure and more health care workers will be needed in the weeks and months to come.

Namibia ready for Covid-vaccine Twenty percent of Namibians will receive the Covid-19 vaccine in the foreseeable future. That represents approximately 500 000 people. However, to achieve a herd immunity for the nation, as many as 60 % to 80 % of people need to be vaccinated.

Namibia’s health minister, Dr Kalumbi Shangula, on Wednesday announced the first delivery of the vaccine is expected by the end of January or some time in February. This first batch has cost Government N$29 million and a Financial Commitment Agreement (FCA) has been signed for the procurement of the rest of the vaccines at a cost of around N$138 million. It is expected the first wave of vaccines will be administered to health workers and vulnerable people. For the purposes of Covid-19, vulnerable people are identified as above the age of 60, persons living with co-morbidities like high blood pressure and diabetes, expectant females, and children below the age of 10. The Covid-19 vaccine is by far not Namibia’s golden bullet out of trouble. In the weeks and months ahead, until the vaccines are delivered and distributed for a countrywide vaccination campaign, people still need to observe Covid-19 safety rules. A person can fall ill from the Coronavirus within days after being infected. Infected persons can end up severely ill requiring intensive medical care or could succumb to the disease. Note: at the time of going to press Namibia was in line to receive Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. What makes this vaccine’s distribution complicated, is the fact it needs to be transported and stored in minus 70 Degree Celsius. Dr Shangula gave his assurance on Wednesday that Namibia will be prepared logistically to roll out Pfizer at this extreme low temperature.

Bagging plant a first for Walvis Bay As the first of its kind in Namibia and a historic milestone for the port of Walvis Bay, Manica Group Namibia has recently invested in an advanced mobile hopper and bagging system. The bagging plant arrived in Walvis Bay at the end of 2020 and is currently stationed in the port awaiting the arrival of its first shipment. In a nutshell the bagging plant allows for products to be shipped in bulk and bagged at destination; a revolutionary approach to bulk shipping. The Nectar Hopper and Bagging system is one of the world's most advanced mobile bagging systems and is designed to be completely self-contained. Although technically advanced, it is user friendly and easily operated. Each unit contains 2 bagging lines with built-in scales, strictly certified in accordance with Dutch Weights and Measures (N.M.I), enabling a guarantee of accurately weighed bags and detailed records of delivered and received cargo quantities. The plant's superior and efficient performance translates to significant cost savings, which includes less handling of bags, direct delivery, lower transportation and handling costs, to name a few. The equipment can bag free flowing bulk products at up to 140 tonnes per hour. The mobile design allows movement of facility between berths or even different terminals. The hopper has a capacity of 21m3 and is fitted with a protection frame suitable for touching down a grab directly from the ship's crane. Galvanised steel grids with 30 mm holes on top of the unit prevent lumps or foreign material entering the weighing mechanism. The hopper also comprises a lockable storeroom for secure storage of spare parts. It features two extendable hopper sides (operated by hand winches). These extend the total grab discharge area to 4.5 x 5 meters. Manica Group Namibia looks forward to increased productivity and ease of business for their customers and providing a one-of-a-kind service, whilst promoting Walvis Bay as a premier bulk handling destination.

Community Development Group gives refreshments to Shoprite strikers Sharlien Tjambari

A local unemployed youth group, Community Development Group, donated refreshments to the employees of Shoprite, U-Save and Checkers who have been on a strike for three weeks now, the handing over of refreshments took place at U-Save, Shoprite at Mondesa on Friday, 8 January. According to the group's spokesperson, Jenette Kauzuu, the employees are not only exposed to the harsh elements but also to hunger and thirst as they stand all day in their quest for better wages. “These are our brothers and sisters, and we would like to show our support by providing them with refreshing drinks. It is through this small gesture that we want them to know that they are not alone in this fight and that there are members in the community who are standing by them”, said Kauzuu. The group's aim is to harness and maximise the untapped potential of local unemployed youth through various projects aimed at providing a stream of income, improving living standards and restoring their dignity. Kauzuu further said: “It is only when we join hands that we will be able to positively change the current economic landscape and paint the tomorow that we want to see. We therefore urge the local youth to rise to the occasion and join the cause”. During the strike, Namib Times observed that there were only two employees inside Mondesa's U-Save Shoprite. The other employees

were picketing outside the shop pleading with community members not to buy from any Shoprite chain stores. On 23 December 2020, Shoprite, U-Save and Checkers employees went on strike after they could not reach an agreement for better pay and benefits with their employer. Without reaching an amicable solution last year, the employees, through their union, the Namibian Food and Allied Workers Union (NAFAU) approached the labour court on a basis for the court to interdict Shoprite from using fixed term employees to carry out duties of employees who are currently on a lawful and protected strike. On Friday, 8 January, Judge Shafimana Ueitile ruled in favour of their union NAFAU in its application against Shoprite. Ueitele ruled that no worker should be appointed in place of a striking employee. Some employees said they have been working for more than five years on a temporary basis, earning a salary of N$250-N$400 per week without any benefits.

Unrelenting in its spread, Covid-19 pandemic has thrown the livelihoods of many into a chaotic twister and 50-year-old Ansie Rossouw, who resides in Walvis Bay, the pandemic pulled a fast one on her, twice. Succeeding many years of service as an auditor, Rossouw qualified for sabbatical leave in last year. All was booked and planned and Rossouw was ready to take her flight to visit England, in March last year however, less than a week before her set departure date the Covid-19 explosion took off and she had to cancel her trip. “It was postponed to December 2020, and yes what happened? a Covid second wave. Travelling is again not an option,” said Rossouw. With her spirits being low the past number of weeks, the disappointment Rossouw spent time over Christmas pondering how to spend her time at home. Finally, an idea dawned on her, she then has set an agenda to bake for charity. “I am truly grateful for the time off. So, my target is to bake 24 cakes came 15 February. I will give the cakes to anybody that will find happiness from receiving a cake. Cake brings a unique happiness that everyone deserves to feel,” she expressed. The mother of two said she is doing this for those who deserve some more love and feel

joy for a few moments. “I am not a master baker, just a home cook that loves to bake. If you know of anybody that would benefit from this, be it for a birthday or any other event. I will bake and deliver.” Her sabbatical will come to an end on 15 February 2021, and she will return to her day job as auditor. “I will have less time for projects such as this however, I will try to find time to continue on a smaller scale.” Rossouw says that amidst Covid-19, many have lost their jobs and some are struggling to meet their essentials. So, despite being locked down, social distance amongst other everyone needs to be on the lookout for opportunities where they can support each other. “Build on your strengths, baking for example is a love of mine and a skill that the Lord gave to me, so I will use it to “be there” for others,” she said. Having only started, the challenges have been few for Rossouw. “I am having a little bit of trouble sifting through the people asking for cakes.” On an average a cake cost her about N$180 to bake. Locals who would like to nominate a recipient for a cake should write to her why the person is deserving of a cake via WhatsApp on +264 81 127 2372.

Het skoonpa en skoonseun by my opgedag en my meegedeel hulle wil die voertuig saam neem, ek het hulle ingeneem en versoek om alles deur te gaan, skoonpa het my meegedeel met die woorde “alles is orait” in daar die stadium was ek besig om ‘n trailor optebou. Hulle het met behulp van my werkers die voertuig uit gestoot. 5 meter voor die ingaan was daar ‘n probleem met die wiel, hulle het die voertuig net daar gelos. ‘n Week daarna het ek weer die seun gekontak, die seun was in persoon weer by my: hy het met my meegedeel die voertuig moet net verkoop word. ek het met behulp van my werkers die voertuig tot langs die ingaan gestoot. Ons het ‘n TE KOOP bord opgeplak, die tyd wakgevolg het was baie gespanne tussen my en my werkers want my trailor parte was weg!! Eindelik na 3 maande het iemand opgedag wat belangstel. Ek het die seun verwittig, hy het toe net gevra wanneer hy die geld kan kry? Ek het die geld ontvang en die papiere oorhandig. Daarna het ons alles saam in die voertuig deur gegaan. Groot was my veraasing toe ons my trailor parte onder die motor onderdele vind. Het pa dit gedoen voor sy seun? Wat ‘n voorbeeld.. “Naukloft Nama”

Support education and sports Germany continues to support Namibia in the area of education and sports during the COVID-19 pandemic through small-scale support for educational and sports organisations. So far, the Embassy has provided tools for elearning such as laptop computers as well as hand sanitizers and thermometers. The institutions which have received support include the evangelical kindergartens in Swakopmund and Windhoek, the PASCH Schools (Delta Secondary School, Namib High School, Privatschule Swakopmund, Martin-Luther High School, Otjiwarongo Secondary School, Windhoek High School and Etosha Secondary School), the Privatschule Grootfontein, TUCSIN and the Basketball Artist School. Enhancing capacities for eLearning in Schools. Following the closure of education and training institutions, e-learning platforms have become critical in ensuring the continuing education of students of all ages. For this reason, the German Embassy donated notebooks to the kindergartens of the German Evangelical Lutheran Church in Nami-

bia in Swakopmund and Windhoek, which were used to connect the teachers with the children during the school and kindergarten closures. The German Embassy and the Goethe-Institut Windhoek also provided relief to the schools in the PASCH-network, in the form of notebooks, handsanitizers, masks and thermometers. The PASCH-network (Schools: Partners for the Future) is a German initiative connecting more than 2000 schools in 120 countries in order to strengthen their interests in the German language and culture. Currently, there are 9 PASCHSchools in Namibia: DHPS, Delta Secondary School, Namib High School, Martin-Luther High School, Windhoek High School, Otjiwarongo Secondary School, Pri-vatschule Swakopmund, Concordia College Windhoek and Etosha Secondary School in Tsumeb. In addition, the German Embassy provided some relief in the form of thermometers and sanitizers to The University Centre for Studies in Namibia (TUCSIN).

Tough Martin tames the impossible Rudi Bowe

Leonard Martin successfully tamed the ultra marathon monster The Munga, a non-stop single stage, semisupported mountain bike race through the remote Karoo from 2 to 7 December 2020.

The race started in Bloemfontein, cut through the Rolfontein Nature Reserve 16km north of Petrusville and end in Wellington in the Western Cape and provided five race vil-lages where riders can sleep, eat and shower, plus ten water-points where they can fill up on snacks and water. The race takes place in the middle of the South African summer, so temps are smoking and riders have 120 hours or five days to ride 1100km and make the cutoff. Martin who participated in his fourth Munga race said that it was his toughest, hardest and best race so far, as his preparation for The Munga was spot on with again hot during the day, cold and windy in the evenings with the same bad jeep tracks, mountains, corrugation roads he cover the 1124km in 99 hours and 58 minutes. Martin said “I went through about 51 farms where I had to open and close all the farm gates with each gate worked differently than the previous one. At night it got cold, 4 degrees, and during the day very hot up to 52 degrees Celsius.” Martin said “The Munga is a unique race and is very unpredictable so you cannot do the race with any predictions that you will do or be the winner, as the elements that you go against is deferent everyday.” “The reason that I am doing this is not to be first or to be the champion but is all about the challenges in life and because life is full of boundaries and I like to see what's behind it and after-all I do this for myself, wife and children and family as well as to show the younger generation that you are never too old

to take on a challenge and that nothing is impossible” Martin said. According to Martin there is no deference between the Desert Dash and The Munga. The only difference is that the Dash is hard as it is a single stage that is been done in the night also with deferent elements and terrine. Martin added that both competition are unique and hard and tough but The Munga is tougher as it is over 5 days and longer that the Desert Dash. Part of his preparation for The Munga, Martin participated in the 207km race from Windhoek to Solitaire and also his own race of 235km from Solitaire to Walvis Bay. “The best feeling of my life was to see my son Brandon-Lee Martin waiting for at the finish line, who has supported me with backups on my long training rides and during The Munga was the cherry on the cake” Martin said. Martin thanked his wife, children, specially his son who was his support system from day one up to the last day, my family and everyone for your support message it really helped me through the night with the hauling winds. Martin will compete in The Munga Cape Grit in April this year and in October he will team up with Deputy Commissioner Tobi Gerber for the Cape Epic and than in December he and his son Brandon-Lee will take on the Desert Dash after he competed in The Munga. Martin who is also the Shihan of the Namibia Gojukai karate Walvis Bay dojo said that they resume their training classes and the registration for new beginners is still open. Venue is at the Atlantis sport club. Training times are Monday and Wednesday 17h30 – 18:15 junior 18:15 – 19:00 cadets' 19:00 – 20:00 seniors. Tuesday and Thursday 17:30 – 18:30 for all beginners any further inquiries can contact Shihan Leonard or Sensei Llewellyn.
