The World Group of Israeli private Erongo RED eyes lucrative to visit investors shows interest retail power supply to Floris Steenkamp mines in Erongo Region The Erongo Region is set to become the future agronomic hub of the country, following confirmation that a group of Israeli private investors is looking into constructing a second desalination plant on the coast near Wlotzkasbaken north of Swakopmund. This desalination plant will be key to feeding water into a 420 kilometre long pipeline, which will provide enough water to put as many as 300 000 hectares of land under irrigation.

Nampower's supply of bulk electricity to the vast mining sector in the Erongo Region is eroding the profitability of regional electricity distributor Erongo RED. Nampower has an agreement in place to sell electricity at bulk rates to Erongo RED which in turn generates a profit at selling electricity at retail rate to consumers.

A mother’s love is unconditional

Erongo RED suffers the opportunity cost [the benefit lost from the next best alternative] from the fact that Nampower sells electricity directly to the mines. In his recent State of the Region Address (SoRA), the Governor of Erongo Clr Cleophas Mutjavikua acknowledged this situation and described it as Nampower's “encroachment on the mines in Erongo Region”. The Governor also outlined several other key challenges Erongo RED face. These include the high cost of upgrading bulk electricity infrastructure, pressure to bring electricity services to the people in the region at the most affordable rate, the impact of high cost of electricity to industry competitiveness and the increase in copper theft that often leads to power interruptions and cost of replacing and repairing the systems targeted by the thieves.

Irrigation powerhouse Continues from page 1 opportunities, industrial and infrastructure development. The desalination project is known as the Erongo Water Utility. The Israeli's, whom have proven themselves over decades as the masters in transforming arid desert land into green bread baskets, are expected to operate the plant over a twenty year period on a Build, Operate and Transfer (BoT) basis. That is recovering their investment over this period with capital gains and also at the same time transferring the plant into Namibian ownership in five-year increments until full Namibian ownership is achieved at the end of the twenty year period. “Water will be channelled from the plant throughout the region for agricultural irrigation”, Clr Mutjavikua explained. The pipe-line will feed water to so-called Agricultural Green-scheme substations. The pipeline will be running from Wlotzkasbaken southward to Walvis Bay and eastwards and northeast to reach all major centres: Arandis, Usakos, Karibib, Spitzkoppe, Uis, Omatjete, Okombahe, Tubusis and Omaruru. The total area to be developed as irrigation schemes along this pipeline will reach 300 000 hectares. In addition, this pipeline will also provide water for industrial development and to provide potable water for human consumption, explained Governor Mutjavikua. “Subsequently, this will boost agriculture productivity, create agribusiness, enhance food security and increase employment opportunities”, said the Governor. Adding the 300 000 hectares under irrigation will also unlock potential for Namibia to start producing animal fodder for the local animal husbandry sector.

This week, the Grand Orion roro vessel which was built in Japan graced our shores and offloaded 401 units, of which 228 were sedan cars, 4x4 pick-ups and 173 were trucks. Eight of these vehicles are for the local market whilst the rest are destined for our neighbouring countries, like Zambia (89 units), Zimbabwe (257 units), Botswana (16 units), Malawi (42 units), Congo (6 units). The vehicles are coming from Europe. Ms Taná Pesat, Acting Commercial Executive of Namport said that consignments going to these countries, cements the efforts of Namport to enhance intercontinental trades and these ventures are always welcome. It was loaded in Sheerness and Killingholme (UK ports) and Antwerp (Belgium port). The Grand Orion has 12 decks and of these decks are used for truck parking while the rest are for sedans and 4x4's. When fully loaded she can carry 59217 gross tonnes.

Dagbreek again scoops Recycling Prize For the third year running, Dagbreek School for the Intellectually Impaired has scooped up the first prize in the annual 2017/18 Schools Recycling Competition (SRC) initiated and hosted by the Recycle Namibia Forum (RNF). Not only did this school, according to RNF Coordinator, Anita Witt once again breaks all previous records in the volumes they managed to collect, but they were also awarded the Best Improved School prize, given their increase from 222kg of recyclables per learner in 2017 to 275kg per learner during this year. In second place was All Nations Christian School with 111kg per learner, followed by newcomer, Môreson Special School in third place with 81kg per learner. Fourth place was taken by Combretum Trust, followed by Delta School Windhoek. Witt: “With Dagbreek's total volume being 30 tons,

and the two runners-up each of 10 tons, our top three schools managed to collect 50 tons of the total volume of 133 tons collected from March 2017 until the end of February 2018. It is interesting to note that the top three schools all have just over 100 learners – which indicates that the enthusiastic

input from a school principal, teachers, parents and learners can attribute tremendously towards success. The Môreson Special School also deserves recognition for being the first school to be placed under the top three in their first year of participation.” At the prize giving ceremony held recently, Witt also noted that when the competition started in 2009 (with only 10 schools), the average weight collected was 15kg per learner, and that this competition has now grown to 50 schools in Windhoek and at the coast, with most schools exceeding 50kg per learner. Witt: “We would like to thank our members for their ongoing support for this project, notably the sponsors of the prizes. 1st prize of N$10 000 by Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) – a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L)

Group; 2nd prize of N$5 000 by Collect-a-Can and the third prize of N$2 500 by Plastic Packaging. Rent-ADrum was again the sponsor of the 4th and 5th prizes; whilst B2Gold Namibia, sponsor of the Best Improved School, awarded the winner of this category with a visit to their Environment Education Centre near Otjiwarongo. Rent-A-Drum will

be paying all schools for the recyclables collected, and to this end, a total of N$30 000 will be paid to the schools who have managed to collect recyclables to the value of N$200 and more.” Witt stressed that she is confident that this annual activity will continue to grow from strength to strength and that she is hopeful that even more schools will continue to show inte-

rest going forward. Witt: "It is heartening to see the total volumes diverted from the landfill by our youth - in 2016 and 2017 the schools collected 89 and 128 tons respectively. This year an impressive 133 tons were collected. It is also clear that the active engagement of principals and teachers play a considerable role towards successful recycling at schools".

ACC and PAP (Pan-African Parliament): Empirical evidence of toothless, ineffective, semi-giant pretenders and failures of African institutions I recently took a very keen interest in following the recent 6th Ordinary Session of the Pan-African Parliament. It is really puzzling how African institutions are so similar in structure, status and action that they take in tackling different issues, and being hailed as prestigious big institutions, while all they are, are semi giant pretenders, there to give the minority of people outside them false hope of a better tomorrow, a better country or a better Africa. African institution is politically invested and pretty much aimed at buying votes and maintaining power to feed the elites for more good years for the political elderly elites. One good example, University of Namibia, a public tertiary education institution is slowly turning into a political institution dominated by politicians, in a way losing its credibility with both students and its senior staffs. First, it was an appointment of the Chancellor, who customarily has been the serving President of the country, now it's the Vice President and Prominent member of the Swapo party who has been subject of attention, and in the limelight for all the wrong reasons, mocking the poor with the famous “omake afyoona nyee” (clap hands you poor people). And lately with the jab of blaming “colonialism and apartheid” for the current wave of corruption in the country. Second came the renaming of the University of Namibia, School of medicine to Hage Geingob campus, a staunch supporter and member of the swap party, and the President of the Swapo Party, soon all

the education institutions would be named after all the ruling party's politicians or MPs, what is our education system turning into? All the decisions taken at the University of Namibia are now politically contentious, and reasonably questionable as they are taken with political thinking and individuals will always question, understandably so, such decisions. The ACC has been an issue of discussion over the years, pretty much since it was formed. It was established with an aura of determination and great expectation, much like the administration of the current sitting president and his much coveted rhetoric phrases, Harambee, “Namibian house”, “no one should feel left out” etc., however, as we all have seen, the action of the institution has not matched our expectations. Government spend a lot of millions on ACC's education and corruption prevention materials through increased communications with the public, letting the public know about corruption and how it possibly handle corruption, this amounted to 13 million in allocation in the current budget, this awareness normally raises more questions than answers for the public, the commission has

failed to take more robust and focused initiatives, like paying individuals who report credible corrupt practices, or whistleblowers who expose alleged and credible practice of corruption in the country, to ensure that the country is free of corruption and everyone is encouraged to report these practices instead of getting involved with corrupt people their own share of personal gains. Multiple cases of corruption have been reported in daily newspapers, frankly, you cannot read a newspaper for two days in a row without reading a report of corrupt activities in O/M/ As in the country, mostly making headlines and front page news, cases involving Politicians and high ranking government and public officials. In a way, the public is aware that such cases also make their way to the Commission, from farm allocations to family members by certain individuals while holding public offices, allocation of tenders to friends, fishing quotas to influential politicians and close friends, politicians involvement in allocation and payment of misquoted figures, such as the 36 and 47 million to foreign lawyers, the use of public funds and tax payer's money by politicians to

stay in luxurious hotels and eat nutritional and luxurious meals, we have airport construction and renovations ejected because of corruption (no one is held accountable), awarding of railways construction and renovation tenders to business partners and friends of politicians in public offices, especially Chinese and individuals who over and over makes the trip to China as part of the President's delegation. What about other shameful and selfish acts by individuals holding public offices that has not been documented or reported yet? The ACC despite all the increased funding from government, continues to look like a small fish in the pond, a toothless pretender, all it does is investigate, all the taxpayers' money is spent on investigating but no prosecution of the culprit. Sometimes no action is taken at all. Then what is the point of having such an institution? The same question has been asked of the Pan African Parliament! The ACC should be an autonomous body, it's funded by the taxpayers and should be accountable to them. The institution should be repor-

ted to the National Assembly, Standing committees on progress and the Annual reports should be submitted to the National Assembly each year. The Director of the Commission should be reporting to Parliament to ensure transparency and accountability, he/she should be summoned to Parliament at the request of the Committees to report and explain progress on certain cases and its action thereof, and not to the President or cabinet who only instruct accused culprits of corruption to explain themselves, how does explaining yourself solve or prevent or stop corruption? The Pan-African Parliament is an example of a laughable institution, which calls itself a legislative body, yet all it does is deliberate on several issues and advise the AU, and it ends there. National Council of Province of South Africa has actually in a matter of speaking much power than this Parliament at country level. Which makes you wonder why is it called a parliament at all, instead of a Consultative Forum? The Pan-African Parliament was established by the African Union

in 2004. Since then it has not passed a single law. That's because it's based on a Protocol that gives it only an advisory role. The parliament can gather information and discuss it, but can't make binding regulations to change anything. Its limited “consultative and advisory powers” hamper the African Union's ability to achieve a prosperous and peaceful Africa envisioned in its Agenda 2063. PAP has been accused as a period in the year were African Leaders go on holiday, sit in their fancy rotating chairs, argue with each other and throw around point of orders just for the sake of it. I mean what tangible resolutions come out of that sitting anyway? One of the main objectives of PAP is to make members states “adhere to good governance, transparency and accountability”, how would such an institution achieve such an objective without definite and decision making powers invested in it? How can a dog bite, if it does not have teeth? Namibia is represented pretty much by S WA P O M P s , s o m e , whose names as citizens of

Namibia we do not even recognise. Hon Loide Kasingo, a Deputy Speaker in the Namibian National Assembly, is the Vice President representing Southern Africa, this much tells you about the seriousness of PAP. African institutions are politically invested, and crucially unable to tackle the issues and problems that confront our society. They are dysfunctional in nature and made up of corrupt individuals. PAP itself has been battling with accusation of its President on corrupt practices and misuse of the Parliament's Funds, his refusal to disclose or disseminate the Report on the state of Parliament finances is evidence enough that he is not squeaky clean. How do we expect the issue of corruption to ever end? If it's embedded in the same institutions and individuals that are directly meant to be dealing with it? PAP is an example of Africa's difficulties in improving its governance. There is no lack of African institutions and agencies with impressive names and multimillion-dollar budgets.

House burgled in Theo- Criminal cases report shows nearly 20 % reduction between 2016/2017 Ben Gurirab Str

A house-owner at Walvis Bay issued a warning this week for home owners to revisit their home security, after he was victim to a burglary in Theo-Ben Gurirab Street. The thugs switched off the electricity supply to his home. When the backup battery of the alarm system was depleted the housebreakers seized the moment.

The Erongo Region saw a visible downturn in some categories of crime from 2016 to 2017, but there remain several problem areas which still needs attention, according to statistics released recently by the Governor of Erongo Clr. Cleophas Mutjavikua in his State of the Region Address (SoRA) last week. Quoting statistics from the Ministry of Safety and Security, there were 68 rape cases reported in 2016. In 2017 the number of case reported decreased slightly to 62 reported cases. With regard to other categories of crime: Assault - Grievous Bodily harm, 545 cases in 2016 and 441cases in 2017. Drugs - 150 cases in 2016 and 181 cases in 2017. Robberies - 179 cases in 2016 and 132 cases in 2017. Culpable Homicide - 37 cases in 2016 and 36 cases in 2017. Stock theft - 135 cases in 2016 and 140 cases in 2017. Theft from motor vehicles - 169 cases in 2016 and 126 cases in 2017 (picture as example above).. Fraud - 295 cases in 2016 and 177 cases in 2017. Housebreaking and theft - 879 cases in 2016 and 811 cases in 2017. Domestic Violence - 393 cases in 2016 and 224 cases in 2017. The total amount of cases for 2016 were 2850 and 2330 in 2017. It represents a decline of 18,25 %

Spotlights on vehicles are legal - court strikes two cases from the roll The mounting of additional lights to your vehicle is legal. That includes spotlights, irrespective of whether it is the conventional halogen spotlights or led (light emitting diodes) spotlights. Two cases have been struck from the roll in the Walvis Bay magistrates court this week where vehicle owners were to appear before a criminal court for having spotlights mounted to their vehicles. They were issued fines by traffic officers and decided to mount court challenges, instead of paying these fines. Veteran traffic official Dave Viljoen, was called in as an expert witness in this regard and made a presentation to one of the state prosecutors in Walvis Bay. In his presentation, Viljoen pointed out spotlights, irrespective whether it is the halogen- or led-type, are not defined in the Road Transportation Act of 2001. The fact that the spotlights are not specifically defined in the Act makes it illegal for traffic officials to issue fines to vehicle owners for fitting spotlights (additional lights) to their vehicles. Further inquiries by namib times, confirmed the Walvis Bay magistrates court will no more hear any cases where fines were issued to vehicle owners who have additional lights fitted to their vehicles. Furthermore, traffic officials also risk now being cited for ill-intentions if further fines in this regard are issued. “Traffic officers need to brush up their knowledge and interpretation of the Road Traffic Act. It is “mala fide” [ill intent] to fine motorists for additional lights when the Act specifically says you may fit any additional lights to your vehicle”, explained a court official. Adding the only prerequisite is when additional lights are fitted to a vehicle, it must go dark completely when the dim switch is activated. That is opposed to the vehicle's standard manufactured lights which are only required to display in either bright or dim mode. Sakariah Namandje Nonsense Point no 1, Road Traffic and Transport Act, is not an Act of 2001 but of 1999. Mr Viljoen and namib times just need to be called to order for misleading the nation with false information

and that is very serious. Lamps are defined clearly in the law. Just read, read and understand. Don't paint yourself gold in public and let others be victimised. Dalene Johnson Can the Namibian police please also be

Three Chinese nationals admit to assault of Namibian who owed them rent money Three Chinese nationals admitted in Walvis Bay on Wednesday that they assaulted a Namibian male who failed to pay rent. The incident took place in the harbour town's new industrial area and the 57-year-old Nambian claims to have been beaten with the fists and was also hit with a metal rake, leading to injuries. The Namibian Police at Walvis Bay confirmed the incident and said three Chinese nationals Zhang Xingdong (42), Zhang Xingpeng (age unknown) and Xiao Haoxiang (22) were arrested after a case of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm was laid against them at the Walvis Bay police station. The assault took place at the business premises South-ward Investments, numbers 1 and 2 Langer Heinrich Street in the new industrial area. According to the Police the victim who was assaulted failed to pay his rent for three months and he was assaulted subsequently. No details are known, whether the rent is for a commercial premises or for a residential unit. Instead of appearing in the Walvis Bay magistrates court on the charge of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm, they opted to pay an admission of guilt fine of N$1 500 each after the charge was reduced to that of common assault. The therefore never saw on the inside of the court.

Friends of Hope is a place for refuge, safe to share, to belong, to learn, to grow and become strong, for healthy challenges and healthy risks, where respect is given to each member, where you can take off your mask and where confidentiality is highly regarded and most of all a place for a possible turning point in your life. The support meetings are not a place for selfish control, for therapy, for secrets nor is it a place where you can look for a date or to rescue or be rescued by others. The meetings is not a place of perfection and long term commitments. You cannot and will not be judged by others

and is not a place for a quick fix. The support group meetings will start

within the next two weeks and the group is looking forward to meeting you.

A mother’s unconditional love their sons by providing them with an opportunity to perfect their skills on a yearly basis. This event marks the highlight of the annual local swimming calendar. Belinda and Zenobia mentioned that the challenges that they endure have made them determined to see their sons perform at the highest level. Unbreakable bond Throughout all the challenges and the sacrificed time, Belinda and Zenobia said that they have formed unbreakable bonds with their sons. Zenobia added that her character, confidence and faith have grown stronger. “Motherhood is the highest calling in life and being able to support the development of our children's talent is an honour,” concluded Zenobia. Belinda echoed Zenobia's sentiment and said that others who can relate should not put too much pressure on their children but support them in every aspect of their lives. A mother's love is indeed unconditional.

Joyful: Belinda Wantenaar, shares a light moment with her son, Ronan, who is one of Namibia's top swimming athlete. Mothers play a crucial role in shaping a child's future. But what does it take to raise a teenager who is a top Namibian swimmer and dreams of doing it professionally? This is a role performed by supermoms, exceptional mothers who successfully manage a home, raise children and have a full time job. Belinda Wantenaar and Zenobia Beukes, are such full time working mothers who also manage their sons' demanding swimming careers. Seventeen-year-old Ronan Wantenaar and twelve-year-old José Canjulo, are one of Namibia's top swimmers. The pair has broken records both at home and abroad. Sporting highlights Wantenaar and Canjulo have a list of accolades to their names. Wantenaar broke the following Namibian records: 200m Individual Medley, 200m Breaststroke and 50m Breaststroke at the South African Nationals Aquatic Championships. In 2017, he broke the 100 metre Backstroke in Budapest at the International Swimming Federation (FINA) World Championships. He will compete in the African Youth Games scheduled to take place in Algeria later this year. Canjulo achieved his first Bank Windhoek short and long course junior Victor Ludorms at the Namibian Nationals this year. He broke his first Namibian record in 2016 at the age of ten. He won his first open water sprint in Swakopmund late last year, allowing him to qualify for the 2018 South African Junior Championships. At the event, he won one gold and four silver medals

while breaking four Namibian records in the 50m Backstroke, 100m Backstroke, 200m Back-stroke and 400m Freestyle events. Ronan Wantenaar taught himself how to swim at an early age and later started competing at the age of ten. “I am his main taxi driver who gets up as early as 04:00 am to get him to morning training – it is a joy,” said Belinda. Canjulo's mother, Zenobia, recalled how it all started: “I swam on a daily basis while being an expectant mother. After his birth, he immediately started swimming at four months old. After that, he progressed to where he is now – a top swimmer,” said Beukes. The Challenges Both mothers said that the daily challenges they experience are roughly the same. They agreed that their careers during working hours demand that they multitask. At the same time, they also need to make sure that their son's education and training schedules are met. Another challenge they alluded to is the financial aspect. The mothers said that swimming is a financially demanding sports code. They appreciated the fact that Bank Windhoek, Namibia National Swimming Championships' sponsorship assists

Club sponsors event Last weekend saw a small field in very warm conditions, played in a club sponsored event. The format was a strange one with players playing from number 1 but using number 10's stroke. Winner on the day was Wilma on 45 points, with Bennie Louw in second place on 43 points. Third was Carlos on 42 points, winning the count out from David. Justice was however done when David won the lucky draw. Wilma also won the jackpot. This weekend is the ANGOLINK day and the format is best ball with both scores to count on stroke 1 and stroke 2…interesting idea from Morne. Calendar for the next few weeks is as follows. 19/5 Piscs Medal Fri 25th Nine hole club practice from 13h00, there will be a few small prizes Sat 26th we take on Tsumeb here at home. On 25th there is a fun day at Rossmund and they have a Renault up for grabs on number 3 for the first hole in one, a great prize so if you feel lucky please enter their competition. We are going to get a Super Bru Pool started for the soccer world cup. There will be an entry fee of 500 and the prizes will be split between the top three places 50%, 30% and 20%, so watch this space. As there is no time change in Namibia we can't start late as it is getting dark earlier, therefore the starting time will be 11:00 with the last hand will be at 13:00.

Gerhard Zandberg’s 3rd Successful Swimming Camp Media Release

The 35 year old World Class Swimmer, Olympic Medalist and now established swimming coach in South Africa, hosted his 3rd successful swimming camp at the Swakopmund Cubes Swimming pool from 2 – 6 May 2018. Due to the current school holidays, and many swimmers being away on various camps and other holiday activities, this was the perfect opportunity for a smaller and more advanced level camp. The camp was focused on performance with a variety of technical components and stroke correction, which was perfectly suited for the group of 6 promising young swimmers that attended the camp. The camp allowed for individualized attention and despite a tough mental and physical program, the swimmers remained inspired and committed up to the very last training session. Darren Van Rensburg (Swakopmund Swimming Club), Damien Mostert (Swakopmund Swimming Club), Danielle Mostert (Swakopmund Swimming Club), Christopher de Jager (Dolphins Swimming Club), Jose Canjulo (Dolphins Swimming Club) and Mikah Burger (Dolphins Swimming Club) were some of Namibia's top young swimmers who attended this advanced level camp. This camp was also the perfect start to kick

off the new Short Course Season with enhanced focus on the vital skills that will assist these swimmers to improve their level of swimming and remain competitive on an international level. Gerhard Zandberg is very optimistic about the positive approach and encouragement from sports, Commissioner, Mr Peter Wilson to continue with future camps in Namibia, working with swimmers from various swimming clubs and also on different levels. Camps of this nature are adding value to the ongoing development of young swimmers and a great platform to allow for benchmarking and sharing ideas between swimmers from different clubs, even if they compete when in the water. Often the success of development initiatives relies on community support and acknowledgement needs to be given to the sponsors that contributed to making this camp possible: Finsure Financial Advisory Services, Andre la Cock Insurance Brokers, Bushbar & Restaurant, Optiker Rohloff & Henrichsen Optometrists Swakopmund.

Alethea would like to become the first IFBB Pro elite athlete to represent Namibia, as well as the first professional bodybuilder in Namibia. She encourages women to look after their health and to take care of themselves.
