With regards to the fraud charges against accused, the state accepted her plea of guilty on the main charge of both counts, as tendered,”thejudgesaid.

The judge stated inhisjudgementthatstatereliedentirelyonthe false statements by the accused when submittingthattheiractionsareindicativeoftheirunlawful killing of the deceased which may be inferred in circumstances where the cause of death is unknown.

The Wasserfall family and Walvis Bay community members have condemned the not-guilty verdict of Madisia and her brother and co-accused, Steven Mulundu.

Namibia Faces Persistent Food Price Spikes, Straining Disposable Incomes
Namibiaisgrapplingwithacontinuedsurgeinfoodprices,whichistakingatoll onthedisposableincomesofmany.Expertswarnthatthesituationisunlikelyto change soon, attributing the ongoing inflationary trend to various factors affectingthecountry'sfoodproductionandsupplychain.
Ruusa Nandago, an economist at FirstRand Namibia, has pointed out that the impact of loadsheddingonfoodproductionandsupply in neighbouring South Africa is expected to keepfoodinflationhighthisyear.Moreover, the weakening exchange rate adds to the problem,asitincreasesthecostofimporting food. Nandago also highlighted the heightened probability of the El Niño climate phenomenonoccurring,potentiallyleadingto erratic rainfall patterns that would reduce food supply and necessitate increased imports.Thelaggedeffectoflastyear'sshocks, such as rising input prices for fuel, fertilizer, andutilities,furtherexacerbatesthesituation, particularly impacting food prices. Namibia heavily relies on food imports from South Africa,whereelevatedpriceshavehadaspill overeffectonNamibianconsumers.Nandago emphasised, “the persistent surge in food prices is negatively affecting disposable incomes.”Withfoodaccountingfor16%ofthe inflation basket and 30% of total consumptionin2021,theincreaseinfoodpricesleaves individualswithlessmoneytospendonother essential needs. Unlike other consumption items that can be substituted, food remains a necessity that people cannot easily do without. Theo Klein, an economist at Simonis Storm,highlighted, “Namibia'svulnerability

The process is that when we compiled the tender documentation, that documentation neededtobeapprovedbyKFWandthenwegaveittothebidders,thenafter the process we carried out valuations, and the valuation report was sent to KFW Theyevaluatedtoensurethattheprocessisfair,andtheymadesure thatthosethatwererecommendedindeedmettherequirementandthatthey were the bidders who had the right to be awarded in terms of the bid qualificationthereforeKFWgaveusano-objectionafterthatapproval,that iswhenwethenannouncedtosaythesesevenhavepassedtheprocessofthe bid-qualification.”

The invitation for the pre-qualification proceedings was done publicly throughthelocalprintmediafrom14to16September2022. Theinvitation wasopenforbothlocalandforeigncompaniestosubmittheirapplications for pre-qualification in line with the act criteria. There was also a pre-bid meeting held on 15 September 2022, with a deadline dated 24 November 2022at10:00.“Imustputemphasisherethatthedeadlinewassupposedto be earlier but was extended on request of the CIF,” Lutombi said, and stressed the importance of the project as it carries a thousand vehicles per day, “wewanttoconstructittothestandardthatitwillliveformanyyearsso wecannotcompromisethestandardorquality.”
After the deadline, RAreceived seventeen applications and the valuations forthepre-qualificationproceedingscommencedshortlyafterthedeadline. The valuations were done in accordance with the criteria outlined in the documents that were issued to the bidders and it was concluded on 16 December2022,“afterwecompletedthevaluations,wesendthevaluations to KFW for them to do the due diligence, and for then to give us a noobjectioninlinewiththeloanagreementaswellastheseparateagreement wesignedwiththem.Thevaluationforthepre-qualificationandasapproved by KFWthrough their no-objection concluded that seven of the seventeen applications met the said requirement for the pre-qualification and will be invited to submit their bids as per the provision of the Public Procurement Act.

to price shocks is due to its net import status and the weak rand. Namibian farmers only produce a fraction of the country's fruit and vegetable requirements, making it heavily reliant on food price developments in other countries, particularly South Africa. The depreciationoftherandagainstmajorcurencies, driven in part by SouthAfrica's food imports from Europe, further pushes up prices in Namibia. Consequently, the prices of various importedgoods,includingfurniture,clothing, electronics, and cars, continue to rise in the country.”
KleinpredictsthatthecostoflivinginNamibia will remain elevated throughout 2023.
“Despiteglobaldownwardtrendsinfertilizer, oil, and commodity prices, these reductions havenottranslatedintolowerpricesinNamibiaduetotheweakrand.Furthermore,anticipatedfuelpricehikesandanexpectedincrease inelectricitypriceswilllikelycontributetothe ongoing inflationary pressures.

However, Klein notes that the tax relief measuresannouncedbyFinanceMinisterIipumbu Shiimiinthebudgetcouldprovidesomerelief to consumers. “.Starting from April 2024,
RAestimatesthattheseprojectswillbenefitemploymentcreationofabout 500 Namibians, all from the Erongo region.

While these measures offer some
