Safety Hazard! Open manholes at popular Walvis Bay playpark Eileen van der Schyff CONCERNED WALVIS BAY residents sent in photos of at least three open manholes at the town's Esplanade Playpark this week, complaining about the threat these open hazards pose to not only children playing in the park, but also adults. The manholes are wide open without any barricades or safety signs, making this a potential accident waiting to happen. “ With the play area very close to these manholes, chances are good someone might fall into one of them while running or walking around in the area. How careless could our municipality be to leave them open? Are they waiting for someone to fall into one of these and get injured or lose a life due to these neglected open manholes and then only act in covering these death traps?” One resident exclaimed during a telephonic interview with the Namib Times. Another concerned resident told the newspaper, “The manholes

Noble and Azhar drug case sentencing Date set for Fishrot trial Continued from page 1 Rudi Bowe scheduled WINDHOEK High Court Judge, Orben Sibeya has scheduled 6 October as the date that he will deliver a sentence to drug dealers Grant Noble and Dinath Azhar. On Friday, the parties appeared in the High Court in Windhoek for final arguments before sentencing, during which Noble and Azhar's legal representative presented arguments to mitigate the sentence. Noble and Azhar, who in 2018 attempted to smuggle 412 kg of cocaine worth an estimated N$206 million into the country with a cargo container from Brazil, were found guilty on 19 August on one count of dealing in cocaine andone count of money laundering but were acquitted on that charge as the judge found it constituted a duplication. State advocate Timo Itula on Friday asked the High Court to sentence drug dealers to the maximum allowed under the Drugs Act, namely 15 years direct imprisonment and that the court should not be deterred from handing down a sentence which is deterrent, preventative, reformative and retributory. The society must be protected from people such as the accused therefore the court must send out a clear message that drug smuggling will not be tolerated. The mere volume of the drugs involved – more than 400kg – would have had a devastating effect if it was let loose on society, Itula stressed. He further said the duo did not show any remorse for their conduct and any plea for clemency on the basis of remorse should be seen for exactly what it is, a ploy clearly aimed at evoking sympathy from the court. Itula argued. According to Itula, the convicts opted not to testify in mitigation, thereby not taking the court into their confidence and any attempt from the defence counsel to proffer remorse from the bar should be disregarded. He further said that it is unknown if any kind of punishment will rehabilitate the accused persons, but what is certain though, is that if they become rehabilitated in prison, they might qualify for a reduction in sentence. Itula said that the drugs were concealed in the same type of boxes the papers were in and that it

would fly in the face of the judge's ruling that states that the copy papers were used as a disguise and that the two men used their business entity – Zeeki Trading - as a front to smuggle drugs into Namibia from Brazil. "If they do not receive a fine, we suggest that prison sentences should be suspended for at least five years on the condition that they do not commit similar crimes again," he further argued. Itula referred to another case where a person was caught with 28 kg of marijuana and was sentenced to 10 years, of which four years were suspended. "This case deals with a significantly larger amount of drugs, as well as a different type of drug and therefore requires a similar or harsher sentence," argued Itula. Itula did agree with the defense that the period that Noble and Azhar had already spent in custody should be a mitigating factor and could contribute to a suspended sentence. Noble and Azhar did not take the witness stand to testify in mitigation of sentence and only apologised through their legal representative and requested the court to show mercy. Judge Orben Sibeya asked Itula to state how much weight should be given to their remorse, as they chose not to testify in this regard themselves. "It is common knowledge among legal practitioners that testimonies weigh much more heavily than submissions from legal representatives," Itula believes. Grant Noble and Dinah Azhar's legal representative Mbushandje Ntinda, standing in for Sisa Namandje suggested that these two convicted cocaine smugglers should only be fined instead of jail time. Ntinda, argued that the pre-conviction incarceration of the accused should be seen as punishment enough. “The court should impose a fine of N$20 000 on each accused with an option of two years imprisonment on failure to pay the fine plus an additional wholly suspended five years imprisonment term." He further argued that the judicial system has moved away from the “backwards-looking retribution theory of sentencing which is associated with revenge as a justification for punishment, and which is deeply ingrained in human experience. Therefore, courts are reminded and cautioned not to deploy a sentencing mind which goes back as far as the dictum of an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and a life for a life. Both Noble and Azhar are in custody in the section for trial awaiting inmates at the Windhoek Correctional Facility,

N$150 million in return for giving preferential access to Namibia's fishing grounds to Samherji, one of Iceland's largest fishing companies. They are also facing multiple counts of fraud charges, bribery, corruptly using the office for gratification, money laundering, and conspiring to commit corruption. These charges emanate from allegations that the men defrauded the Ministry of Finance when they made misrepresentations to the Directorate of Inland Revenue that Nengomar Pesca Namibia generated revenue of N$14.1 million from 2014 to 2019, while the company had generated revenue of about N$40.1 million. The suspects are being represented by Windhoek-based defence lawyers Florian Beukes, Appollus Shimakeleni, Richard Metcalfe, Florian Beukes, Lucious Murorua, and Trevor Brockerhoff. High Court Judge Miller postponed the case to 19 October. All the accused except Gustavo remain in custody. Gustavo's bail application was granted last year.

These pits can lead to accidents during daytime with all the children running around in the area, however, these open pits become more dangerous during night-time and an accident is almost guaranteed to those walking in the area while it is dark. Namib Times raised questions in an email to the Walvis Bay Municipality on Tuesday this week. By the time of going to print, no answer has been received. The newspaper drove out to the park before going to print to see if the matter has been resolved, but the manholes were still uncovered and wide open.

Gardening project for DRC Clinic patients

Sharlien Tjambari

A vegetable garden that will cater for pregnant women, patients with Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and day visitors was handed over to the DRC Clinic in the Democratic Resettlement Community (DRC) by the Municipality of Swakopmund this week Wednesday. In 2021, through her annual strategic plan at the Swakopmund Municipality, the recently elected Constituency Councillor Louisa Kativa proposed the implementation of an urban agricultural project at the DRC clinic.

Kativa said, “this came after I realised the dire need of my community of the DRC for basic food items. After approval from the management committee, we wrote letters to the Ministry of Health and Social Services for the approval of a backyard

garden at the clinic.” As a former health worker, Kativa said she could not help but notice how patients visited the clinic and hospital with a hungry tummy and that is when she decided to find a permanent solution to the problem instead of only the

temporary solution of food parcel handouts. Swakopmund's urban agriculture project aims to promote urban agriculture by encouraging residents to produce their own food and stimulate food security and economic growth. Kativa said, ”thus, in line with this vision, the office of the mayor initiated providing food for the less privileged patients at the DRC clinic. Our focus group is the pregnant women because when you are expecting, you need nutrients for the baby that is growing, and unfortunately, those living in DRC do not have the necessary means to have nutritious meals.” According to Kativa, this project commenced in July 2022. the soil preparation was done by the volunteers and by the urban agriculture pro-

The crew of about 120 male and female military personnel, support personnel and military observers sailed from Walvis Bay's naval base under Captain Simon Kombada to Rio de Janeiro on 24 August where they have been participating from 10 September until tomorrow, 24 September in the Unitas LXIII. The distance travelled was approximately 3 200 nautical miles, which is equivalent to 6 000km, and it took the ship 10 days to reach its destination. The aim of the voyage was to honour the invitation extended to the Namibian government, in particular the Namibian Navy, to participate in the annual Unitas LXIII which was conceived in 1959, and has taken place annually since it was first conducted in 1960. Brazil is hosting this year's exercise coincided with the 200-year commemoration of their independence, The anniversary of Brazil's navy's founding brought together 19 nations from across Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa to train forces in joint maritime combat operations, marine pollution and maritime security aspects, like piracy, the trafficking of people and illicit goods, and illegal unreported and unregulated fishing. This exercise will enhance tactical proficiency and increase interoperability and help develop and sustain relationships between maritime partners and achieve common goals. t also guarantees freedom of navigation to enhance trade between the countries, and also fosters military-to-military exchanges, cooperation and understanding between the participating nations. The exercise will help improve the professionalism and operational readiness of the Namibia Navy and other participating nations that include Belize, Brazil, Cameroon, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Guyana, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, South Korea, Spain, United Kingdom, and Uruguay. NS Elephant is expected to arrive back in Namibia in early October.

The shade net house was donated by the Swakopmund municipality, and they are grateful to the carpentry section for this. The project is expected to grow vegetables such as spinach, beetroots, cabbage, onion, and carrots. There are currently three volunteers taking care of the garden who will continue to take care of the project, but the urban agriculture project team will be available for advice and assistance. Kativa said, “as we hand over this project to the ministry of health today, I would like to request

that they take ownership of this project and ensure that it becomes sustainable. Furthermore, I also urge the community of the DRC and the patients here at this clinic to make use of this facility. but also, volunteer and provide your assistance on how you can cultivate crops here as it will benefit you. let us not vandalise this project as its aim is to provide food for your community.” The DRC Clinic caters for expecting mothers and babies, TB, and HIV/AIDS Patients. The project is expected to grow vegetables such as onions, cabbage, spinach, beetroot, carrots, and peppers.Kativa stressed on the importance of starting a backyard garden, she said each resident with back-

yard space to start a backyard garden. According to Kapande Kaputene, the lady who will be taking care of the garden together with Albertina Cleopas, she started volunteering at the garden in 2014. Kaputene said, “this is not the first time the municipality is setting up this garden, this is the second one. The first one was destroyed during the lockdown. Members of the community broke in and took all of it because they were hungry with all the lock downs. I thank the municipality for setting it up again.” Robeam Ujaha, the Environmental Health Practitioner – Health Services is the one who oversees the urban gardening projects in Swakopmund.

Eumbo Star diamond unveiled

Sharlien Tjambari

Last week, 15 September, NAMDIA (Namib Desert Diamonds (Pty)Ltd) and its partner Samir Gems DMCC, a Dubai-based company revealed and unveiled the Eumbo Star, a 15.06 Carat with the highest colour grading of D colour flawless diamond that represents a first of its kind in Namibian history valued at close to N$26 million. During the unveiling ceremony of the Eumbo Star diamond, NAMDIA's Board Chairman, Bryan Eiseb said NAMDIA and Samir Gems DMCC entered into a joint agreement in March this year with the aim to bring an exceptional-sized rough diamond weighing 37.67 carats originating from Namibia into the down-

stream market, an initiative which he said was a first for NAMDIA and for the Namibian diamond industry. Eiseb said, “through this agreement, NAMDIA will establish its global brand identity and bring us ever closer to discovering the true value of Namibia's diamonds in the global diamond value chain. Our expert partners in this project, Samir Gems, cut and polished the diamond using the finest technology and skill.” Eiseb further said, once polished, the brilliant round cut diamond was graded by the world's foremost authority on diamonds, the Gemmological Institute of America and certification indicates the diamond's origin, giving great provenance to Namibia and NAMDIA. The name, Eumbo means home and it was allegedly name after the NAMDIA home where the head offices are situated.

Eiseb said, “we are now thrilled to move into the next phase of this journey of discovery with the Eumbo Star and its deployment into the downstream market, where it will be networked to market into various retailers and high net-worth individuals. The goal is to position the diamond into direct channels to the private clients, once again gaining great provenance for Namibia and its diamonds.” Devang Bhansali, the Managing Director of Samir Gems DMCC said, “we found it proper and benefiting that the unveling of the stone be done in Namibian soil from where

it originated from. This bears testimony that Samir Gems DCC is committed to the longterm relationship with NAMDIA and thus helps in contributing to the upliftment of the Namibian people.” Bhansali further said, “to further strengthen the relationship Samir Gems DMCC is happy to announce that we have initiated the process of setting up a factory in Namibia as further proof that we are committed to investing in the country. This will bring years of experience in cutting and polishing of diamonds to Namibia and thus create jobs and add value to Namibian diamonds.”

The Return of the Waterboers Rudi Bowe

The Return of the Waterboers is a book about the dynasty of Johannes and Hester Waterboers, penned and recently published by one of the descendants of this historical clan, Mildred Williams. The journey of this spiritual awakening and revelation of the Waterboers ancestral lineage or roots started when the author was still a schoolgirl that learned about the Waterboers in her history class.

A few years ago, she started her journey to rediscover the Waterboers ancestors that led to the publication of her book about the Return of the Waterboers. According to Williams, the book will unpack the

connections between the many families that belong to the Waterboers dynasty. “The journey got me to understand the tradition of transferring of names that remained in the family to keep the historical and biological lines alive,” Williams added. She explained that there is nothing as fulfilling and reinvigorating as completing the journey to rediscovery and self-discovery. “When you find your ancestral lineage or roots you found yourself.” “Hester and Johannes Waterboers made me find answers to questions that were hidden although they were just under our noses. Their resurrection and restoration are my passion and my desire.” “The journey has not been easy for the Waterboers dynasty, but now I can proudly say that I am a descendent of the Waterboer clan”, Williams said. “If you know where you come from then you know where you are going. Therefore, the younger generations must know where they come from and what their foundation or identity is. If your roots are not deeply anchored, the wind will blow them away and then they are lost”, Williams concluded. She encourages readers to not give up when numerous attempts at being a success fail. "Life is not dimensional, be consistent in the pursuit to discover your coming and your purpose. Mildred is a qualified Public Relations Strategist as well as a journalist who is passionate about writing and family. She loves spending time with her extended family. Her future plans include a follow-up to the book or maybe a series of books on different families. She has also started her own program called “OnsKomvandaar” which is also the name of her Facebook Page. Some of the famiies mentioned in the book are the Groenewalds, Jansens,

Honorable Deputy Minister of Mines and Energy, Ms Kornelia Shilunga appreciated the inaugural launch of the 2021 Swakop Uranium Sustainability Report, and lauded the Company for demonstrating its commitment for good corporate governance and

transparency to communicate its 2021 performance. The Mine is the largest employer in the Namibian Mining Industry with over 1700 permanent employees and 1000 contracting personnel. Swakop Uranium Board member and Chairperson of Swakop Uranium Sustainability Development Committee, Ms. Inge ZaamwaniKamwi, said that 2021 report highlighted the positive impacts to sustainable development in Namibia, particularly in the Erongo Region. The Company is further committed to be fully supportive of the National Development imperatives and the Global Sustainable Development Goals. Continuous Business Development is embedded in our business strategy to build a world-class company that Namibia can be proud of.

STEVE'S TAKE AWAY Better Ball Last weekend, not only did we have the first playing of STEVE'S TAKE AWAY better ball, but we also had a better ball with a difference – and a new format as well. The first nine was a better ball medal and the second nine was a better ball stableford. The winner was determined by subtracting the stableford score from the medal score with the lowest score being the winner. There were five prizes and two closest to the pins and thanks to Anton Welgemoed for the sponsorship. The winners on the day were Piet van Niekerk and Shane Westerdale on 7 points with Paul Sham and Amandio Sardinha one shot off the pace. Third place winning a count out, was Piet Fox and Wouter van Wijk on 9 points and fourth was Anton Welgemoed and Herman Smidt. Grant Mather and David Peake took the fifth place on 10 points. The closest to the pins were won by Michael

de Barros and David Peake. The jackpot came under threat but that was where that ended and there were four winners of two clubs. Due to the coring of the greens, this weekend we will have the GREENKEEPERS REVENGE, and more info on this will be on the social platforms. I have been told it will be great event. The course is closed until Wednesday and the Wednesday competition will be played under the two putt rule. If you are on the green you are able to score two and move on. The NGK Moedergemeente have their fund raiser on 14th October.
