Explosives to deliver the end-blow to the wreck of the Fukuseki Maru 7 Floris Steenkamp

The wreck of the Japanese fishing vessel Fukuseki Maru 7, which ran aground off the coast near the mouth of the Ugab River in midMarch 2018, will be subjected to a wreck reduction with commercial explosives next month. Unlike the spectacular site of the vessel being blown apart in a controlled explosion, a wreck reduction quite oppositely entails weakening the vessel’s structure with explosives. Key areas of the vessel’s structure will be weakened by a series of controlled explosions. In doing so it would enable the sea to enter the hull structure and allow the harsh marine environment to fast track its course to break down the vessel. Fukuseki Maru 7 settled on a rocky reef approximately 1 200m off the coast. There was minimal damage to the vessel and no danger that it could sink. The crew was rescued and in the weeks and months that followed the vessel was cleared of all substances and materials that could harm the

“Minibus of traffic horrors” Eileen van der Schyff

As the festive season is steadily approaching, road users should start to revive their road safety conscience and ensure vehicles are roadworthy and that the rules of the road are followed properly. In an incident earlier this week which ticks none of the road safety boxes, a minibus was pulled over by the Namibian Police's Traffic Unit on the MR44 (road behind the dune belt) from where a staggering 35 passengers emerged. No one wore safety belts including the driver. If not enough, fuel containers were found on the passenger's side containing diesel. Pictures herewith: the vehicle, the fuel cans and the staggering number of people that emerged from the minibus which is sure to give any traffic official sleepless nights. Note: on a very alarming note, the workers who were in the minivan are allegedly given no choice. It is a matter of getting to work with this vehicle, even overloading, or risk losing their jobs.

The house is an embarrassment for the town’s people, all the while as Government officials are twiddling thumbs and shift blame. Other pictures show the house is dilapidated, vagrants are taking trash bags there to empty to scavenge for food and valuables to sell, criminals are making it a hiding place and graffiti possibly indicates drug peddling activities in the area.

marine environment. The vessel was stripped to its metal core, and in the years that followed the sea started its process to break it down. Recent pictures, however show the process is rather slow, as the vessel’s hull remains surprisingly intact. The vessel is listing heavily to port side though, not the original position in which it stranded in 2018. Early in November, a team comprising of rope access specialists, blasting specialists,

and salvage experts would set up camp on the shore near the wreck. Access to the wreck will be by semi-rigid inflatable boats and a rope access team will secure safe access points onto the deck. Scaffolding will be set up, and the blasting experts can then start the work to pack the explosives and connect it to the detonator system. “Our work depends on the weather”, said the project leader Mr Bresler de Beer of B-

Four Diving. B-Four Diving is the project leader on behalf of Subtech South Africa. What makes this project unique is that the majority of work and expertise come from Namibia. The blasting expert is Mr Elvin Hangula of Landsberg Blasting, and the explosives and accessories supplied by Enaex Namibia under the leadership of Mr Tobi van der Linde. Rope access work will take place under the team leadership of Mr. Ethan van Rooi.

The South African consultant Joe Brinkmann (Jet Demolition South Africa) will supervise the project overall. Added de Beer: “We have received our environmental clear-ance certificate to carry out

the work, and we will be finalising our blast plan next week”. According to de Beer the project was preceded in recent weeks by trial blasts to ensure it has sufficient strength to take the wreck apart.

Replacement of sewer line soon to conclude.......... The Swakopmund Municipality is in the process of replacing a section of the main sewer line that collapsed at the Kühnast/ Aldridge/Möwen junction of the town. This sewer line runs under Kühnast Street and ends at the start of Vrede Rede Street. According to the spokesperson of the Swakopmund Municipality, Ali Gebhardt, the municipality will be replacing at least 60 meters of pipeline, 6 meters underground as well as two concrete manholes. In the last months, a sink hole developed next to one of the sewer manholes before the entire line section collapsed. The work is being done by municipal staff, assisted by an SME-contractor, who is dealing with the pipe laying and general construction work related to the project. The cost of replacing the line is around N$150 000, and is at an advanced stage and should conclude towards month's end.

Namport goes big on World Food Day The Namibian Ports Authority earlier this month donated one hundred 'basic dry food' parcels to the Office of the Governor in Erongo, as part of the commemoration of World Food Day tomorrow, Saturday 16 October. As part of the commemoration, the parcels will be handed to members of the community at the Utuseb settlement on the banks of the Kuiseb River southeast of Walvis Bay. In fact, one hundred households in the seven regional Constituencies in Erongo will benefit from this gesture by the Ports Authority.

Dolphin School Grade 12's say farewell Rudi Bowe

The grade 12's of The Dolphin School were quite busy the last few weeks of their school year that unofficially ended on Tuesday 12 October with their Valedictory day at the Walvis Bay Community Church in the harbour town.

The end of a chapter

Twelve or so years ago these sweet little innocent children started school. They became less innocent but sometimes still sweet young people who are now prepared to go into the world. The world waits in darkness and need you. Go out there and be the light. You were taught all you need, it is now time for you to go out there and live the lessons gifted to you. The guest speaker, Mr Willem Derks, told the grade twelve's to not look for joy, create it and that happiness should not be their goal in life, it should be a lifestyle. Derks said, “Your habits create happiness as we shape our habits and then our habits shape us.” “Happiness based on events is temporary and happiness based on habits is long-term and happy habits are just as addicted as bad habits but they are much more satisfying” Derks added. He says “You do not need other people's permission to be happy and you cannot control what other people say or do to you, but you can choose how to respond. It is your choice to rejoice.” The outgoing Head Prefect of The Dolphin School, Mickhael Fourie said in his last word to his fellow grade twelve's to choose their friends wisely, fine people who want to be the best for you and spend your precious and valuable time with them. He further told them, “Stop comparing yourself to others, we're all too different from each other and none of us are equal. Nothing is made perfect so neither are you. We should stop trying to change the world.” Fourie added, “We are still kids and we should embrace it, but it does not mean we should pursue expediency but pursue something that is meaningful.” The Dolphin School Principal, Mrs Ilse Palomba said that we live in a world of instant gratification and immediate responses and many people become irritated if the responses are not immediately. Don't be like that, slow down and take time and wait for it with patience. Palomba said, “Peer pressure is all about insecurity. Be confident in who you are and you will never have to fit in.” At the event, the prefects for the year 2022 was introduced. The Elementry School prefects for 2022 are: Lia Kufuna- Head Prefect, Lloyd Jansen – Deputy Prefect, Daniella Stauder, Jo-GeaShatika and Kauthar Heuvel. The Dolphin Secondary School's prefects for 2022 are; Nadine Willemse – Head Prefect, Zea Summers – Deputy Head Prefect, Xavier Croza, Tanaka Kimbini, Delano Muller, Amore Mupetami, Stefan Roux and Sunsunet van Blerk. Alicia Jankowitz received the Dux Learner Trophy with an average of 75.3% through her Secondary School Career. Sunsunet van Blerk, Zea Summers, Amore Mupetami and Liam Allen accompanied by Mr Erwin Adams attended the Arbor Day last Friday in Kuisebmond. The Hospitality class of 2021 hosted a Restaurant evening for their final Hospitality Practical Examination. The Hospitality Regional Moderator was present while the learners prepared and presented their food. The evening with some special guest was a big success. Last Friday 8 October the grade Twelve Farewell was held at the Rustic Pearl in Walvis Bay. The learners looked stunning as they arrived with new special or vintage cars.

The Bank Windhoek Coastal Maths Challenge exposes learners to problem-solving in a challenging and fun context since 2014. It regularly motivates teachers and learners to engage in problemsolving activities periodically. "I wish mathematical problem solving would receive more attention in schools because problem-solving can lead to an appreciation for the power of mathematics," said the Challenges' Organiser Courtney-Clarke, from Orison Educational Services. Courtney-Clarke added that the support of all the mathematics teachers and the learners at Swakopmund and Walvis Bay secondary schools had carried the event forward. "However, the support of a sponsor is indispensable. Our gratitude goes to Bank Windhoek for recognising the importance of promoting mathematical problem solving among our Namibian learners and for the support this event enjoys," she concluded.

NOTICES NOTICES NOTICES NOTICES NOTICES NOTICES NOTICE OF THE CONSENT APPLICATION IN TERMS OF THE WALVIS BAY TOWN PLANNING SCHEME CONSENT: Homebased Business (Barber Shop) ON ERF NO: 452 TOWNSHIP/AREA: Narraville STREET NAME & NO: 243 Sam Nujoma Avenue.

PRESS RELEASE MUNICIPALITY OP SWAKOPMUND POSITION ON APPLICATIONS FOR LAND IN SWAKOPMUND Namibia is experiencing rapid urbanisation in most major towns and Swakopmund has been no different. Municipalities cannot keep pace with the increased migration due to a combination of factors. The result has been uncontrolled growth of informal settlements and an acute increase in demand for serviced land for residential and business purposes. Local authorities cannot overcome these challenges without the assistance of the private sector and the intervention of Government. Swakopmund Municipality has been inundated with requests for large parcels of land from the private sector for the development of townships. Processing and considering applications is time consuming and places a high demand on Council's human resources meaning there is less time for planning and execution of strategic objectives. Many such applications have been approved; however, the results have not always been satisfactory for different reasons. Developers who have been allocated land (for eg township development, Urban Agriculture, Tertiary purposes and housing) by Council and have not completed them yet, will be kept strictly to the agreed time frames and terms and conditions applicable to their projects.

In terms of the Walvis Bay Town Planning Scheme, notice is hereby given that I/we, the undersigned, have applied to the Walvis Bay Municipality for permission to erect/establish on the site a/an: Homebased Business (Barber Shop). Plans may be inspected or particulars of this application may be obtained at Town Planning, First Floor, Rooms 101 & 105, Civic Centre. Any person having any objection to the approval of this application, must lodge such objection, together with grounds thereof, with the General Manager: Roads and Building Control, (Town Planning), Private Bag 5017, Walvis Bay and the applicant, in writing, not later than 5 November 2021. NAME AND ADDRESS OF APPLICANT: Mr Jonathan Dean Smith, P O Box 8094, Narraville email: snoepie7777@gmail.com

Council also requires monthly updates from these developers to avoid developmental bottlenecks. Council has now decided to re-establish control over all facets of urban growth in pursuit of its objective of providing a continuous supply of affordable serviced land for all purposes, eg residential, commercial/industrial, agricultural and aquaculture. In furtherance of the stated objective, Council has decided that it will no longer entertain unsolicited bids/proposals/requests for land from the public for the foreseeable future as per the resolution below. (a)

That an advert be placed in the newspapers informing the public not to submit unsolicited applications for land since all land will be advertised. (b) That Council approves the following transparent and easily implementable process for the allocation of land for private developers in terms of section 7 of the Property Policy as follows: (I) Council directs what type of development it plans in the different unplanned areas for a given period. (ii) Council identifies land which it intends to reserve for itself to ensure that Council can make good on its mandate to control the development and sale of affordable land and housing.

A first for Swakopmund Rudi Bowe

The first ever Festival of Movement and Music with Rhythmic Gymnasts and Ballet dancers was recently staged with a live strings orchestra from Strings Attached and the Young Strings at the Dome in Swakopmund. The festival was held over two nights with Rhythmic Gymnasts from Oceanview Rhythmic club and Ballet dancers from Ballet Tuition in Swakopmund. According to Leonie Botes, the Director of Strings Attached and the Young Strings, Christa Lambrechts come up with the idea to use different music pieces for all the dancers coached by Leonie Botes and Heather Kittel. Leonie Botes said “Within two months the gymnasts and the ballet dancers prepared their routines on new music and the orchestra had to learn new pieces for the performances.” “We had two evenings of dress rehearsals with extra training and two evenings of performances.” “We prepared a 75 seat theater at the Dome and to our surprise both nights were sold out,” Botes said. “It was a wonderful experience for all and hopefully it will not be the last. All the participants enjoyed it very much and thank you to the coaches and parents for their support”, Botes said.

WBM FLAGS Golf

The popular WBM FLAGS were played at the Walvis Bay Golf Club over the past weekend with a large field of 38 players in near ideal weather conditions to see who could carry their flag the furthest. Sadly it was Wynand Breytenbach who planted the first flag and won the Boobie prize. Then the procession started on numbers 16 and 17 where one flag then the next one lined the fairway. The format to cut each player by six shots made sure that no one was able to carry their flag into the club house. When the dust [or lack thereof as there was none] had settled it was Jaco de Witt who planted his flag on the apron on the 18th with Kevin de Reuck and Shane Westerdale on the tee box of 18, coming in second and third respectively, obviously rueing one shot or the other during their round to see what might have been. Chris Bothma was 4th and Tangeni Mpupa was 5th. The 6th place went to Nardo Sardinha. At the prize giving Wouter van Wijk not only handed out the prizes but committed to being back next year. Thanks to the partners from WBM, Wouter van Wijk, Kurt Brits and Kurt Brits and Sue-Allen Mans for their continued support and sponsorship, see you next year. On the photo is Wouter van Wijk, Jaco de Witt and Kurt Brits The committee have relooked at the Race to Cape Town following the failure of our previous sponsor which left last year's winner David Peake without a prize. The past Sunday the juniors were out on the course and were divided into three groups, advanced, intermediate and beginners. The overall gross winner was Kyle Johnson, runner up Emile Vilbert with the overall nett being won by Connor Gibson with Theuns Albert the runner up. In the intermediate division, it was Rudi Auseb winning the day with Justin Auseb in second place with Jordan Rossouw third. In the beginners group it was Ethan Johnston winning with Lembi Niilenge second and Ashly Martins in third spot. Well done to the winners and to those who did not make it there is always a next time and with a bit of practice you can be in the prizes. It was great to see there were a few girls in the groups and they are coming on

in leaps and bounds, watch out guys they are coming to get the prizes. Thanks to Grant Mather for taking the time out with the juniors and to all the parents a big thank you for your input and support for the kids playing golf. On the photo is Kyle Johnson with Grant Mather. Andre Burger and Piet van Niekerk travelled to Okahandja for the Okahandja Golf Club leg of the Sages event. 44 points won the day with both our players [lets say] ending a bit lower down the field. Thanks guys for taking the time to travel away and represent the club. Following a suggestion we received [thanks Kurt] we have agreed as follows: · There will be a competition similar to the RTCT, but now known as Race to Club Fees [RTCF] · The prize will be annual subs and annual green fees currently about 10 000 bucks · The commencement date this year will be 1 November but will be 1 August going forward · The competition will end on the last Saturday of July. · We have given David a refund of his subs and given him green fees for the rest of the year So it is game on, and we will circulate the full set of rules soonest which will include the count out, qualification etc processes so watch this space. Just a reminder that the CONCORD YELLOW BALL is a 27 hole event, with one each of better ball, one score and both scores to count on each of the nine holes. Tee off will thus obviously be earlier, probably about 10h00 so watch this space.
