Etosha Fishing imports 3 300 metric tons of frozen pilchards for its cannery As part of its ongoing operations, one of the oldest pelagic fishing companies in Namibia, Etosha Fishing, confirmed this week the import of 3 300 metric tons of frozen pilchard which would be worked at the company’s cannery in Walvis Bay. Importing frozen fish and adding value to the product locally is an established business strategy for Etosha Fishing which since 2010 has imported an estimated 50 000 tons of fish for local value adding. The latest import shines a very positive light on the pelagic fishing sector which since 1996 has been battling the odds to stay afloat. Some of these odds included a zero total allowable catch (1996), low annual total allowable catches for nearly two decades now and a recently announced 3 years moratorium on pilchard catches in Namibian waters are some of the odds the pelagic sector is battling. In a statement this week Etosha Fishing said despite a three year moratorium imposed on pilchard catches by the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources last year, the Company with the move to import frozen pilchard and canning it locally secured employment for all its seasonal workers. Workers can be assured of a job until at least mid-December this year, according to the statement. In addition hopes are

also high for a contract with the Glenryck- and Lucky Star brands to can pilchards for the Glenryck and Lucky Star for 2019. That would mean securing jobs for another year. “Our cannery has been fully operational since January and we anticipate continuing normal operations for the remainder of the year. I am also confident that we will be operational until the end of 2019,” Etosha Fishing Managing Director Pieter G r e e ff i s q u o t e d . Greeff gave the assurance despite no Namibian pilchard catches, the import and local value adding will keep all job activities unchanged. The first bulk shipment of 3 300 metric tonnes of frozen pilchard was received by Etosha Fishing last week. The company’s world class cannery has been working uninterrupted since January and the latest import of frozen fish keeps the production schedule rolling. Greeff in his statement also confirmed the Company also conclu-

Namibia Marine Phosphate celebrates court victory Successful appeal could now lay the table for marine phosphate mining Namibia Marine Phosphate (Pty) Ltd regards the matter as concluded and welcomes the opportunity to resume working with the Namibian Government to establish a marine phosphate mining industry for Namibia. That is the message after the Company won an appeal in the High Court of Namibia earlier this month that the Minister of Environment and Tourism erred in withdrawing an environmental clearance certificate issued by the Environmental Commissioner in September 2015 for marine phosphate mining to go ahead. In a statement Namibia Marine Phosphate's Executive Management says: “The Company advises that on

Friday May 11, the High Court of Namibia ruled that the Minister's decision to withdraw the Environmental Clear-

ance Certificate issued to the Company by the Environmental Commissioner on 5 September 2016, is no decision

Namibia Marine Phosphate Continued from page 1 judgement will be provided on the Company Website in due course. With this matter concluded, the Company now welcomes the opportunity to resume working constructively with the Namibian Government in order to take the project forward and to resolve any residual stakeholder concerns or mis-information regarding the project development, within the framework of the Namibian legislation and the conditions of the Environmental Clearance Certificate. To date some N$780m has been invested in the project to support exploration as well as technical, economic and environmental studies. Further development of the project will require an estimated capital investment of N$5.2 billion and is projected to yield Government revenues of approximately N$728m per year in tax and royalty payments (N$ 14.95 billion over ML tenure of 20 yrs.). The Company remains committed to the principle of co-existence in the marine environment and to the responsible development of the Sandpiper Phosphate Project in Namibia, in the interests of all stakeholders.” Meanwhile, the lawyer representing the fishing associations that wants to stop the future of marine phosphate mining, on account that it would destroy fishing biomass in the ocean, said it might be a little too early for Namibia Marine Phosphate (Pty) Ltd to lit the celebratory fires. The High Court's decision that the Minister erred will be appealed.

Etosha Fishing pilchard catches, it would spell the end of Namibia's pilchard industry. Restarting the factory would be too costly,” said Greeff. Greeff also expressed Etosha Fishing’s support for the three year moratorium on Namibian pilchard catches. He expressed hope it allow time for the pilchard resource to recover. “With Namibia's pilchard resource under pressure for the past decade now, the company has imported in excess of 50,000 metric tons of frozen pilchards for processing on local soil since 2010, which has been sustained local jobs and continues to serve as a significant boost for the local economy of Walvis Bay. In recent years the company also made substantial investments in thawing equipment in, order to process the imported frozen pilchards more efficiently. Etosha Fishing has been canning pilchards for the revered Lucky Star brand since 1999 and last year secured a contract to can pilchards for the Glenryck brand. In terms of local product innovation, the company broke ground in 2013 with the introduction of Namibia's first canned horse mackerel product range called EFUTA Maasbanker. It was the first local canned product to receive the Namibian Standards Institution (NSI) Standard Mark of Conformity product endorsement. The range of products, which includes horse mackerel in tomato sauce, chilli sauce and brine, is Halaal certified and is a proudly Namibian product displaying the Team Namibia logo. It was successfully introduced to the Namibian retail market in 2014 and showed tremendous uptake, with sales increasing from an ini-tial 80,000 trays (960,000 cans) sold in the first year to an estimated 400,000 trays (4.8 million cans) sold annually

In order to sustain operations at its cannery, Etosha Fishing has imported in excess of 50,000 metric tonnes of frozen whole-round and cutlet pilchards since 2010. This year's first bulk shipment of 3,300 metric tonnes were offloaded at the Port of Walvis Bay during the second week in May

It's business as usual at Etosha Fishing's cannery thanks to its continued imports of frozen pilchards for local processing. The company has been canning pilchards for the African market leader, Lucky Star Pilchards, since 1999 and have now also secured a contract to can pilchards for the Glenryck brand at present. Etosha Fishing continues to invest heavily in product innovation with the launch of an EFUTA Maasbanker curry flavour imminent and product testing of a minced horse mackerel product also currently under way. Furthermore, Etosha Fishing utilised its own refrigerated seawater trawling vessel for the landing of wet horse mackerel for land-based processing in line with the company's horse mackerel quota. Planning is under way to build an onshore facility to freeze horse mackerel not suitable for canning. “Despite the current pressures of a dwindling pelagic resource, Etosha Fishing is determined to

Despite the demise of Namibia's pilchard resource over the past decade, Etosha Fishing continued to invest in its cannery to ensure it remains a world-class factory. This thawing equipment allows for more efficient processing of imported frozen pilchard for the local and international markets remain steadfast in our commitment to sustainable resource management, job creation and industry development,” says Greeff. He notes that the company will also continue

to import frozen pilchard in order to remain afloat and will continue to develop and diversify its horse mackerel products”, the statement further reads.

Justice for Sedick Eileen van der Schyff

The family of the late Sedick Brenner, the 20-year-old man whose body was found on the beach at Langstrand on 2 May this year, appeals for people to come forward with information in order to form a complete picture of the circumstances under which he died. The right information is believed to be out there, which could lead to the conviction of persons whom the family believes were responsible for Brenner's death. An autopsy confirmed Brenner died by drowning. A docket for an inquest was opened and was forwarded to a local magistrate to rule whether a further investigation is needed to establish the circumstances under which he drowned and whether people can be held criminally liable. The family is now appealing for people to assist with any form of information. A statement received from the family reads: “The Namibian police at Walvis Bay confirmed the cause of death as drowning, and a docket for inquest has been opened. However, the family wants more information around the cir-

cumstances leading to the young man's mysterious death. The family asks the assistance of the residents of Narraville, Walvis Bay and Langstrand by checking their surveillance footage from 1 May from 5pm to 2 May 7am. Maybe there is a chance his car has been captured by any of the cameras. The car a silver March with registration number, N 25854 WB, is pictured here. It is requested that anyone with information please contact Sergeant Kapanza - 081 231 7437 or 081 361 1974 and Gadija - 081 220 0430. The bereaved family further wants to thank those who have come forward with information willingly, and they thank the public for their assistance, time and prayers.�

ACC marches onwards despite many challenges Theft at the municipal bungalows at Swakopmund and a Walvis Bay company which used forged pre-approval documents for fishing rights to swindle someone out of more than N$1 million in cash are part of 85 cases handled in the 2017/18 financial year by the Anti-Corruption Commission in Erongo. Of these 85 cases, a total of 23 are currently heard in criminal courts, 56 are ongoing investigations and six new cases were reported during this mentioned financial year. These statistics were revealed this week at the ACC’s annual media information day, held at the Governor’s office in Swakopmund. The ACC’s senior investigation officer for Erongo, Frieda Kanyama presented the information. Despite the successes in investigating cases of corruption and bringing it before criminal courts, Kanyama admitted this week also there are steep challenges for the ACC in Erongo. These challenges include a shortage of personnel, as the Erongo office currently only has four investigators and the number of corruption cases reported each year are on the rise. Another major challenge, she explained is the fact that there remains a misunderstanding among members of the public what conduct constitutes corruption, what conduct is ordinary criminal cases that can be investigated by the Police or even cases, such as labour cases, which can only be handled by the line authorities like the Ministry of Labour. A number of the cases reported and investigated during the 2017/18 year have been referred to various agencies like the Police, certain Government Ministries, the Ombudsman and even to civil courts, as the merits of the cases cannot be prosecuted under the Anti-Corruption Act. Some of the other cases under investigation include irregularities at the Usakos town council and also an investigation into possible fraudulent administrative processes that allowed a Chinese company to export wood from a protected tree species through the port of Walvis Bay that originated in either Zambia or the Democratic Republic of Congo. The wood has been seized by the port authorities until the ACC completes its investigation.

Now in its 7th year of existence, the internship program of Kraatz Marine – a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List (O&L) Group – is host to 11 more Namibian students from the Namibia Institute of Mining and Technology (NIMT), bringing the total of participants to 80 since inception. Over the next six months, the 11 NIMT students will acquire relevant practical skills in Boiler Making & Welding, as well as Fitting & Turning. Kraatz Human Capital Manager, Roberto January: “Regardless of the challenging economic times, we remain committed to contributing to skills development and growth of the Namibian economy. Established seven years ago, the Kraatz Internship Program has played a critical part in enriching participants with the necessary skills and experience required for the labor market. This

speaks directly to the O&L Group purpose 'Creating a future, enhancing life' which Kraatz is very passionate about. The program enables students to do their job attachment to gain practical experience in preparation for the job market. The students receive on-thejob training and mentoring from Master Craftsmen with years of experience in the Industrial, Marine and Off-

shore industry.” O&L Group Director: Human Capital, Berthold Mukuahima: “Kraatz' internship program has proven to be a great success over the past years. The O&L Group is extremely proud of the commitment of Kraatz management and employees

to keep this program alive and through it contribute to ongoing skills development which is absolutely commendable.” The Kraatz Internship Program offers job attachment not only to students in their 3rd levels but gives opportunity to level 1 students

as well. The level 3 students stay with the company for a total of 12 months, which is required by NIMT to qualify or trade as level 4. Students will be rotated to give them the exposure within the Marine & Offshore and Industrial Divisions respectively.

New curriculum will allow learners to excel Melba Kaure

The Minister of Education Arts and Culture Katrina HanseHimarwa (pictured left) says the revised curriculum for senior secondary learners will allow them to excel.

105 000 visitors to Cape Cross and Naukluft Park during 2017 Statistics by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism indicate that during 2017, a total of 105 263 visitors, both local and international, visited the Cape Cross Seal Reserve and the Namib Naukluft Park. These visits generated tourist revenues to the tune of N$5,9 million. These figures were recently provided by the Governor of Erongo, Clr Cleophas Mutjavikua during his State of the Region Address (SoRA).

She explained this at the recent opening of the 13th Mathematics Congress held at Swakopmund. The Congress was held at the theme: “High Quality Math Teaching Matters: Sharing knowledge to improve teaching”. The congress assisted in equipping secondary mathematics teachers with knowledge and information to cope with the revised curriculum which is to come into force in 2019. “In the past, the education system inhibited learner abilities and categorised them into either standard grade, higher grade, core extended- or higher level. By doing so we limited if not suppressed learner potential”, said Hanse-Himarwa. “The new secondary curriculum offers at NSSCO level the mathematics that allows everyone to take part and excel. In the Grade 12 year, which follows the NSSCO level, the AS level is designed in such a way to prepare learners for mathematics-related careers”, she said. ·The material discussed and learned at the congress will also be loaded on the Kopano virtual learning platform. The platform is the brain child of University of Namibia staff members Marcus Mbambo and Ndumba Kamwanyah. Kopano allows for teachers to access readily available information and content accumulated from the teaching fraternity from across the nation. Note: The congress received a sum N$300 000 in sponsorships. Sponsors were Walvis Bay Salt Refiners, Langer Heinrich Uranium, the Pupkewitz Foundation, Hansa Hotel Swakopmund, Casio electronics, Namibia Publishing House, Shopper Trading and Solutions, Pearson Namibia and Simply Sales.

Group of Israeli private investors shows interest 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. During his State of the Region Address (SoNA) last week, the Governor of Erongo Clr Cleophas Mutjavikua confirmed the Erongo Development Agency (EDA) engaged a group of Israeli private investors to set up the desalination plant at Wlotzkasbaken, the site where Namibia's first and only desalination plant is currently located. The EDA is an umbrella investment promotion entity that was set up by the Office of the Governor, the Erongo Regional Council and several local authorities in the Region. The main aim of EDA is to bring investment to the Region to bolster employment 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 Mut-javikua explained. The pipeline 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. Alex Silheu What is the quality of the Desalinated water, and is it actually fit for crop irrigation? Which is then consumed by the population? Werner De Villiers Punzul Once the water is desalinated it is almost purer than normal drinking water, and very rich in minerals. So in a measurement its a brilliant idea. But would have been even better if the Namibian government did this years ago. Christian Erasmus Should this project not have been advertised as per the new Procurement Act of Namibia? Musa Manyando Investments are never ad-vertised..these Israeli are puttig capital on the table for investment. Christian Erasmus Musa Manyando thanks, do you think that the development of this project will be conducted by this act or do you think that because it is an investment it can be done outside of the act? Christoff Coetzee Good development for producing Namibian food. Louise Von Wielligh For the ignorant ones Israel is the leading country in the world when it comes to water purification, desalination and the irrigation of arid areas. Cleo Nawinda Omake let's change The Namib onto a green horizon... Lars Kulikowski Why do we need investors to build this? Come SWAPO etche.. Karim Visagie The Zionists are buying there way into Walvis Bay. We shouldn't let these people into our country. Their government is commiting crimes against humanity and their mass murdering innocent civilians in Palestine. Get rid of them they are bad for business we got the Chinese already that's enough for us. Sem Iyambo I fully support you. Rita Sowden I support Isreal.

Pebble Foundation Charity Drive Goes Coastal Rudi Bowe

Why are we called the Pebble Foundation and what is the pebble campaign? The character of the foundation is built upon the famous quote by the late Muhammad Ali: 'It is not the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out, it's the pebble in your shoe.” The excitement was in the air for the team of phenomenal Walvis Bay volunteers, Beverly, Michelle, Felicity, Nadine and Libeth, as the Pebble Foundation visited the coastal town of Walvis Bay on Saturday 12 May, to share its vision, ideals and to promote the pebble campaign. The multiple award winning singer and volunteer of the

Pebble Foundation Ann Singer, entertained the Walvis Bay community as they donated more than 500 sanitary pads that will be for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged girls in the communities. We are thankful to our sponsors, The Namib Times, Be You Consultancy, Her Style Fashion Boutique CC, Alexis Antonia Virtual Assistants and Nature Bloom Florist and Décor

and the fishing industry. The foundation will start with the distribution of the sanitary pads in July 2018.

33rd KÜSKA starts on 26 May

Swakopmund wouldn't be the same without its week of KÜSKA Carnival activities! And this year is a very special one as we are celebrating the 33rd KÜSKA Carnival! we would highly appreciate if you would allow some space in your events calendar, to announce to the public our KÜSKA dates for 2018. The MOTTO (slogan) for this year is Lasst Die Puppen Tanzen…, meaning “Let the puppets dance/Laat die poppe dans”. On Saturday – 26 May at 11h11 - we will start the festivities with the so called “Narrenwecker”. The term translates into “Jokers/Jesters wake-up call” and it is the kickoff event of the carnival. It takes place on the main street of Swakopmund and there will be live music, food, drinks and a short program, that will give an indication on what can be expected from this year's KÜSKA. It is also where tickets sales for the carnival starts. Tickets will be available from 11h110 at the “Narrenwecker” and then again from on Monday, 28 May at Swakopmund Brauhaus between 11h30-15h00. You can also contact Margit at wmcllp@ The next event is the Prinzenball (Royal Ball) on Friday 15 June in the Haus Der Jugend. During this evening the new KÜSKA Prince and Princess will be presented and the Swakopmund city council will symbolically hand over the keys of the town to the royal couple. On Saturday, 16 June at 14h00 we celebrate the KÜSKIKA - a children's carnival promising to be

fun filled and entertaining with fancy-dresses, music and games to play. During the week we celebrate the Ladies Night (18 June), International Evening (19 June), the Mixed Evening (20 June) and the German Evening (21 June). Our Ladies Night takes place only every second year, so this is a great opportunity for the ladies to have a wild-one and enjoy an exclusive program! All of the above event take place in the Haus Der Jugend and doors open at 19h00, while the program starts at 20h11.

Tickets are available on the 26 May at the Narrenwecker and then again from on Monday, 28 May at Swakopmund Brauhaus between 11h30-15h00. On Friday, the 22 June we move into the hall of the SFC to celebrate the Maskenball (Fancy-Dress Party). Tickets are available at the doors and to dress-up is

compulsory. Entrance will only be allowed from the age of 18 years and identification documents must be provided. To end this fun-filled week on a high note the popular Umzug (float procession) through Swakopmund will take place on Saturday, the 23 June, followed by the famous Kehraus in the SFC Hall.

An der Atlantikküste,in der Namibwüste Strip-Strip-Hurra! Es muss nicht immer... Möchten Sie zeigen, wie sinnlos und unnütz manche Dinge im Leben sind? Melden Sie sich bei Susann

Kinghorn; Tel. 405183 oder 081 2538850; Mail: susannking

oder bei Martin Weigand, der mich im Juni vertreten wird: Cell 081 600 5131; Mail: We i g a n d M @ Im “Crazy Horse Saloon” steht die meistbesuchte und am schärfsten beobachtete Badewanne der Welt. Die berühmte StripKünstlerin, die in diesem Gefäß allabendlich vor übervollem Haus ein Vollbad gestaltet, wird von über 100 Scheinwerfern sorgfältig ausgeleuchtet. Den starken Besuch kann man sich damit erklären, dass die meisten Gäste des Etablissements zu Hause keine Badewanne haben. Zeichnung: Manfred Schmidt Folge 5 Die Freude am (aus Amerika zu uns gekommenen Striptease scheint mir überhaupt auf diejenigen beschränkt zu sein, die irgendwo zu kurz gekommen sind. Doch zurück zu den nackten Tatsachen. Der zweite Teil des “Crazy Horse” Programms begann mit dem vielgerühmten “Bad der Braut”, interpretiert von Fräulein Veronika Baum. Die Silhouette der Braut in Kranz und Schleier wurde von hinten auf eine Leinwand geworfen. Dazu erklangen aus den Lautsprechern Orgelmusik und das Geräusch laufenden Wassers. Die Illusion war vollkommen. La jeune marièe legte im Zeitlupentempo ihre festliche Garderobe ab. Stück für Stück entfernte sie die Einzelteile mit so apathischer Langsamkeit, dass jedem Bräutigam dabei mit Sicherheit der Kragen platzen würde. Als die Braut endlich badefertig war, bekam sie zunächst Rot- und dann Grünlicht. Wie eine Verkehrsampel. Dann ging die Leinwand in die Höhe. Man sah Veronika in der Wanne sitzen. Das Wa s s e r g u r g e l n

brach ab, die Orgel lief w e i t e r. D i e b r a u t steckte ein Bein in die Luft und säuberte es sorgfältig. Dann erhob sie sich unter den Klängen eines Hochzeitsmarsches. Was dann kam, ahbe ich nicht mehr gesehen, weil am Tisch vor mir eine Dame ohnmächtig wurde. Der Gatte und ein Kellner hoben sie hoch und trugen sie hinaus, wobei in der Dunkelheit für etwa 800 Mark Getränke umgestoßen wurden. War das nun ein Trick der Dame, um ihren Mann herauszulocken, oder ein Trick der Geschäftsleitung, um den Konsum zu heben? Ich weiß es nicht. Als die Braut ausgebadet hatte, trat ein Schauorchester auf, und dann bot eine junge Dame namens Poupèe la Rose vier Minuten lang zuckend und wippend ihre diversen Blößen dar. Als Poupèes Popo die Bühne freigab, wurde eine Pause von weiteren 45 Minuten angekündigt. Da bin auch ich gegangen, denn es war bereits kurz vor eins. Wer alle acht Striptease-Nummern von jeweils 3 bis 5 Minuten Dauer sehen will, muss fast 4 Stunden lang in drangvoll fürchterlicher Enge ausharren. In der Nähe des Ausgangs hängt ein alter Kupferstich an der Wand, eine Darstel-

lung von Sündern im Fegefeuer. Das ist wohl ein diskreter Hinweis für Leute, die zu zahlen vergaßen. Daneben stand der Geschäftsführer. Als pflichtbewusster Reporter fragte ich ihn: “Könnte ich vielleicht in der großen Pause ein kleines Interview mit Ihren Künstlerinnen in der Garderobe machen? Ich bin Journalist.” Er glaubte mir kein Wort und sagte: “Es ist unseren Darstellerinnen strengstens verboten, hier Bekannschaften zu machen. Es sind ehrbare Mädchen, die sich solide verheiraten wollen. Viele von ihnen haben schon sehr interessante Ehen geschlossen!” Dass die Strip-Artistinnen eine Ehe interessant zu gestalten verstehen, glaubte ich ihm ohne weiteres. Der Herr wollte aber damit sagen, dass seine erfolgreichsten Schützlinge Großindustrielle ehelichten. Er sah mir wohl an, dass ich nicht zu dieser soliden Gesellschaftsschicht gehörte. Deshalb kann ich den Lesern leider kein Interview mit einer Stripperin bieten. Aber wahrscheinlich hätte ich doch nur erfahren, dass sie allesamt als Hobby gute Bücher, Tiere und klassische Musik lieben. Ende

Made in Namibia Preisausschreiben Sie können zwei tolle Preise von dem Kleinbetrieb “Made in Namibia” gewinnen, wenn Sie die folgenden drei Fragen zu den dort erhältlichen Produkten bis zum 28. Mai beantworten und an susann senden: 1. Welche drei natürlichen Ingredienzen sind in allen Desert SecretProdukten enthalten? 2. Welche besonderen

Knöpfe, typisch namibisch, werden für alle Lederwaren in dem Geschäft verwendet? 3. Wie lautet der Slogan der Produkte, die von Natura Africa in Swakopmund hergestellt werden? Zu gewinnen sind: 1. ein lederner Kulturbeutel für Männer (von COSDEF in Swakopmund handgearbeitet) mit einer Männerseife und einer Körpercreme im Werte von N$ 790,-; 2. Eine lederne Kosmetiktasche für Frauen (handgearbeitet von

COSDEF) mit einer handgemachten Seife, einem Marulaöl und einem Lippenbalsam aus dem Öl der Kalaharisaat (von Natura Africa hergestellt) im Werte von N$ 690,Wer die Antworten herausfinden möchte, der schaue in dem Laden in der Libertina -Amathila-Straße vorbei. Es lohnt sich!

PSS in Swakopmund die Klassen sieben bis zehn in Afrikaans, Biologie und Englisch. Und auch heute ist sie noch als PensionsAushilfe an der Namib High School tätig. Als ein Highlight in ihrer beruflichen Laufbahn führt sie im Jahr 1995 die 42köpfige Delegation aus Namibia zur Welt-Gymnaestrada ins Berliner Olympiastadion an. Die lebensfrohe Trudi betreibt seit mehreren Jahren das Gästehaus ChalaKigi. Die Namensgebung dafür ist originell: Ihre vier Enkel Charlotte, Laurence, Kiron und Gia haben dafür jeweils ihre ersten Buchstaben „abgegeben“. Trudi ist außerdem sehr unternehmungslustig, reist viel zusammen mit ihrem Mann Karl in der Weltgeschichte herum und engagiert sich in ihren wenigen freien Stunden u.a. als Gymnastikleiterin im Prinzessin-Rupprecht Heim in Swakopmund. Wir wünschen Trudi weiterhin Gesundheit und viel Lebensfreude. Martin Weigand

An der Atlantikküste,in der Namibwüste Ein Kindergarten sagt Tschüß Locker vom Hocker Diskrepanz und Ineffizienz

Swakopmund "Ilse Schnoor - Moment, wer war das noch? Ach so, Tante Ille, klar, kennen wir. Wir waren bei ihr im Kindergarten und jetzt sind es unsere eigenen Kinder." So in etwa spricht man von der Erzieherin, die Ende März im Georg-Ludwig Kindergarten aus dem langjährigen Dienst verabschiedet wurde. Wo kam sie eigentlich her? Tante Ille ist in KölnEhrenfeld aufgewachsen und ließ sich zur Kindergärtnerin ausbilden (damals hieß das noch

Hortnerin, sagt sie!). Sie arbeitete auf Juist in der Nordsee für die Kindererholungsprogramme. Nach einem Tapetenwechsel ins Hotelgewerbe nahm sie eine Arbeit in der Jugendpsychiatrie in Süchteln bei Mönchen-Gladbach an. 1968 reiste sie mit einer Freundin nach Südwestafrika aus und wohnte noch im alten Georg-Ludwig Kindergarten von Swakopmund hinter der Polizeistation. So machte sie den Umzug in den neugebauten Kindergarten mit und gründete dann auch eine eigene Familie. Nach einer kur-

Liebe Küstenleser! Die meisten Menschen werden mit der Fähigkeit zu hören, zu sehen, zu riechen, zu schmecken und zu fühlen geboren. Nicht alle aber erblicken das Licht Welt im direkten Sinne, oder haben aus diversen Gründen die eine oder andere Sinneswahrnehmung nicht mit in die Wiege gelegt bekommen. Manche wiederum verlieren durch Umstände oder Alter eine Sinnesempfindung. Ich kenne zum Beispiel eine in Swakopmund lebende Dame, die als Kind nach einem Sturz vom Pferd ihren Geruchsund Geschmackssinn verlor. Eine Windhoekerin wiederum konnte nach dem Ausrutschen in der Badewanne nicht mehr riechen und schmecken. Man stelle sich vor, den würzigen Duft einer Omumbiri, jenem Parfüm der Himba aus dem Harz der namibischen Myrrhe, nicht mehr in der Nase wahrnehmen zu können. Oder aber eine Zunge, die den herben Geschmack der goldgelbenen Marulafrucht nicht mehr erkennt. Eine Freundin hat einer genetischen Augenkrankheit zufolge ein stark reduziertes Blickfeld, das stetig kleiner wird. Das heißt, wo Sie und ich einen ganzen Witgatbaum sehen, hat sie lediglich ein Blatt vor Augen. Gar nicht einfach, sich davon ein Bild zu machen, nicht wahr! Als Studentin hatte ich einen Freund, der nicht hören konnte. Um mit ihm verbal kommunizieren zu können, musste ich meine Worte visuell sehr deutlich formen, da er mir - wie

es sich für einen verliebten Mann gehört quasi (fast alles) von den Lippen ablas. Einerseits können all diejenigen, deren fünf Sinnesorgane noch intakt sind, sicherlich froh und dankbar sein. Andererseits war ich manchmal richtig neidisch auf meinen tauben Freund, weil sein Seh- und Tastsinn so viel ausgeprägter war als meiner. Seinem scharfen Raubtierblick, den er intensiv auf die Umwelt heftete, entging nichts, und er

Standard Bank Annual Angolink Betterball Better Ball A large field of 40 players turned up to play in the Angolink Betterball day last week. Morne Roux handed out the prizes at the prize giving. There was a small twist in the better ball format in that there were two scores to count on stroke 1 and stroke 2, a bit of spice on the day.

Winners -Standard Bank Betterball Standard Bank held their Annual Better Ball Scramble Drive Competition on Saturday 12 May with cool weather conditions. A great field of 37 golfers took to the fairways in search of one of the coveted prizes on offer. As always it was a great day of golf and a big thanks goes to the sponsor for their continuous support of golf at Rossmund. Nearest to the Pin prizes went to: No 3: H Ndjendja; with No 7: 12 and 16 all going to T Shitaleni.

What child does not grasp the pleasure-

principle of miniature golf (putt-putt)? Just how childlike golf players become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five”. Coming Events: Saturday 19 May – Destination Swakopmund will sponsor something different being a Betterball – Yellow Ball Competition – so get on the thinking caps and decide who will play the “odds” or the “evens” for those extra points.

SSFD football league kick-off Rudi Bowe

The Southern Stream First Division (SSFD) football league's first round will kickoff tomorrow with two games at the Kuisebmond Stadium in Walvis Bay and one game at the Mondesa Stadium in Swakopmund and on Sunday two will be played at the Kuisebmond Stadium. The SSFD is been divided in a Coastal Stream and an Inland Stream. The reason for separation of the Southern Stream First Division in to two groups is the fact that there is not enough time to play the First Division League. The league will run from 19 May with the last league games being played on 24 June. The two streams will consist of six teams. The teams that will play in the Coastal Steam are Spoilers FC, Northern Stars FC, Westerns Spurs FC, PC Blue Boys FC, Flamingoes FC and Khomas Nampol FC. This weekend fixtures are as follows:

Saturday Northern Stars FC vs Spoilers FC at the Kuisebmond Stadium at 12:00 Western Spurs FC vs Khomas Nampol FC at the Kuisebmond Stadium at 14:00 Sunday Northern Stars FC vs Khomas Nampol FC at the Kuisebmond Stadium at 12:00 Western Spurs FC vs Spoilers FC at the Kuisebmond Stadium at 14:00 P C Blue Boys FC vs Flamingoes FC at the Mondesa Stadium in Swakopmund at 14:00 On Wednesday Northern Stars FC vs Western Spurs FC at the Kuisebmond Stadium at 19:00

Again, it was the juniors who won the day with Willie Els and Jonathon Mather comes in with 59 point far ahead of second place. Johnny Borges and John Sardinha with 54 points. Third place with 53 points were Deville Dreyer and Rocco Viljoen. Nearest to the pin went to Piet van Niekerk.

Good news for the club is that Willie Els has been selected to play in the junior British Open in July. Mooi gedaan Willie ons is omtrent trots. We are hosting Tsumeb and we have a list on the board so please get your team together, and enter soonest. Just for the Tsumeb event, I will be running with this so if you have any ideas and or thoughts please let me know.

Emile Pitt became the first Namibian male ever to win a Gold medal at an Africa Gymnastic Championship Emile is a 17-year-old Men's Artistic gymnast from Swakopmund, Namibia, with real potential to compete at world events, such as the Artistic Gymnastics World Championships, Commonwealth Games and even possibly as a floor and vault specialist at the Olympic Games in the future. Emile was born in Omaruru and moved to Swakopmund to live with his aunt Johanna Pitt after the death of his parents. He started his Gymnastic career in 2011 when his aunt introduced him to gymnastics. He is one of the kids that are at the Dongina Risser Gymnastics Foundation, a charity organisation which helps children in Swakopmund with an interest in gymnastics to give them the best chance to succeed in gymnastics, school and in their future careers. Emile was invited by Bart Connors and Nadia Comenech for a training trip to the USA where he will also be vetted for potential training options at a high-performance club in Norman, Oklahoma, or other similar facility in the USA. In order to further his goals Emil received a scholarship from a University in the USA. To train and study in the USA was just a dream for Emil and this dream has become a reality. He, however, still need N$10 000 to go to the USA and therefore plea to all companies to help him to make this dream to train and study in the USA reality.
