Mayoral Vehicle replace the mayoral Mercedes Benz and Volkswagen Jetta at the August 2019 Council meeting. The new Official Mayoral Vehicle is a Platinum Grey Peugeot 3008 GT Line 1.6 PureTech and was bought for an amount of N$621 045.870 (including all taxes). The Pearlescent White Peugeot 3008 Active 1.6 PureTech was bought for an amount of N$484 844.77 (including all taxes) and will be used by Councillors for official duties only. The arrival of the new mayoral vehicle could not have come at a better time as the mayoral Mercedes Benz that was purchased in 2011/2012 financial year had to be replaced. The mayoral Mercedes Benz and the Volkswagen Jetta that was used for official duties by the staff members in the office of the mayor will soon be

sold on auction. The Peugeot Namibia assembly plant that was officially launched and unveiled by His Excellency, Dr Hage Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia on, 5 December 2018 at Walvis Bay has to date sold only 22 vehicles, with 131 units still in stock. So far, despite a directive by President Hage Geingob for State entities to procure locally manufactured goods, only the Walvis Bay municipality, the Namibia Industrialisation and Development Agency, the National Training Authority, the Swakopmund municipality and the Namibia Investment and Promotion Development Board bought have acquired locally assembled Peugeots. Critics have also castigated government for not following its own directive, as the Road Fund Administration recently handed over 25 vehicles produced outside the country from

Volkswagen and Toyota to the Namibian Police. The Minister of Industrialisation and Trade Hon Lucia Iipumbu recently said in her statement at the handover of ministerial vehicles procured from POAN “We know that currently POAN is faced with a critical issue of an 18% duty on export ready vehicles. The importation of components is thus now unhindered bar for the Rules of Origin based duty at export-ready stages.” “This surely has implications on the competitiveness of POAN product and ultimately on the sustainability of the plant. Both MIT and Ministry of Finance (MoF) recognised that the matter is sector-wide and will afflict any other entrant to the sector and therefore not exclusive to POAN” the minister added. According to Iipumbu POAN have around 120 vehicles on the factory floor, which the company is unable to export

Property rental scamming on the increase

The last thing one should be concerned about when renting a home is being scammed. Unfortunately, scammers are becoming increasingly prevalent not only in the real estate industry, but also with scammers pretending to be landlords, and it is essential to be vigilant throughout the process. At least a handful of residents at the coast have fallen victim to a property rental scam that is advertised on social media. Under the profile, Nathan Smith on Facebook, the man advertises various questionable low-priced properties for rent with a cell phone number of the “landlord” in “the comment section of the posts. The “landlord” in this case is deceased John Robinson who lost his life some time ago on the B2 coastal road. Namib Times phoned the “landlord” yesterday after receiving several phone calls from residents who have fallen victim to the scam. When asked if it is possible to view the property, the “landlord” explained he operates on a first come first serve basis. The scammer operates by scheduling a property viewing for later in the day, but first expects a payment of N$1000 through ewallet to “secure” the property, and first waits for a deposit from another potential tenant. He explains the reason for an e-wallet payment is because his bank is in a negative and any payments into his account will be deducted. He then requests the victim's phone number and sends proof of “his identity”, which is the identity document of the deceased Mr John Robinson. Warning signs to prevent being the victim of a rental scam you should watch for is if they don't want to meet you in person, they want you to move in immediately without ever seeing the property, they ask for rent or a security deposit before signing a lease, the price is too good, there is no tenant screening process.

Continued from page 1 due to the 18% effective tariff. “Allow me at this juncture to thank all those who have procured their vehicles from POAN such as the municipality of Walvis Bay and all other individuals and entities who have indeed so far answered our call to support this strategic investment initiative in the country”Iipumbu said. Iipumbu urges all local private and public entities including the general public to start procuring these vehicles just as the Ministry of Industrialisation and Trade, The Municipality of Walvis Bay and the other few has done, as this will enabled keeping the assembly plant afloat and in the meanwhile to save jobs.

Namport remains appreciative that the tourism industry is a key player in Namibia's economy and we continue to be committed to advancing the country's drive of economic recovery. During the month of December, the following Passenger liners are expected to call at the Port of Walvis Bay; the MSC Lirica on 09,15,20,24, and 31 December respectively and the final Passenger liner, Norwegian Jade will arrive on 31 December 2021.”

Klazen launches the Marine Spatial Planning status report Sharlien Tjambari

The Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) Current Status ReportKnowledge Baseline was launched on Thursday, 18 November in Swakopmund. The report brings together the evidence required for the development of Marine Spatial Planning. It provides the foundation for guiding future development at sea. The MSP is a decision-making process that guides where and when human activities occur in the ocean. Making sure the right activity takes place in the right area, helps the ocean economy to grow sustainably – benefitting humans and the environment alike. According to the Exe-cutive Director of the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources, Annely Haiphene, MSP provides a mechanism for an integrated plan-ning approach for marine management. It provides a framework and guidance on the use of ocean by different stakeholders to maximize benefits and minimize conflicts among the ocean users. MSP has been authorised by Cabinet through the 2nd National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) 2013 – 2022. MSP is a key strategic goal of the National Development Plan 5 (NDP 5) to achieve a blue economy “that sustainably maximizes the economic benefits from marine resources to ensure equitable marine wealth distribution for all Namibians”. This is in view of the growing range of industries in Namibia's ocean space (fishing, mining, trans-port, and tourism) that exert increasing pressure on the health of the eco-system. The Minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources, Derek Klazen said: “Having perused the current status report I am convinced that it is an important milestone in the Namibian Marine Spatial Planning process, since it brings together multiple sectors and stakeholders to integrate their spatial claims and interests in order to generate the best sustainable ocean development pathway for the country. As such, it contributes directly to the development of a sustainable blue economy”.

The detour on the MR44 duel carriageway behind the dunes is becoming a concern among residents frequently using this route at night. The detour is only visible once you have reached it. Westcoast Safety Initiative on their social media platform suggested putting in place flashing orange lights at both ends of the detour for better visibility in an attempt to avoid unnecessary potential accidents.

To remove or not to remove? Residents of Kovambo Nujoma Drive in Walvis Bay are divided over the recent removal of a speed hump in this street lined with luxury homes and accommodation outlets overlooking the picturesque lagoon. Also nicknamed “millionaire's mile”, Kovambo Nujoma Drive is the main life artery of Walvis Bay Salt for the daily transportation of salt from the salt pans to a stockpiling facility in the port of Walvis Bay. Approximately one million tons of salt is transported by hi-tech salt trucks on Kovambo Nujoma Drive per year. Residents are divided. There are those who feel the two speed humps, also knowns as speed calming infrastructure, are there for exactly that role. The removal of the southernmost speed hump created a dangerous situation for pedestrians crossing the road. It caused one accident recently. In contrast, those whose homes or accommodation facilities are closer to this southernmost speed hump, complains of increased noise pollution levels as trucks and other transport drive over it. An inquiry to the municipality of Walvis Bay revealed home-owners in the immediate area of the southernmost speed hump were consulted in writing. These residents all opted for its removal. With the speed hump removed, other residents are left frustrated as vehicles speed on this stretch of road. “We have removed it, as residents complained of the noise. However, we are looking at alternative measures to curb speed in this street,” a senior municipal manager indicated. These, among others, include more pedestrian crossings which will force vehicles to reduce speed.

Forty-eight Pork bushes planted in four Walvis Bay parks by CMA CGM #PlantingForPlanet initiative Eileen van der Schyff

French container transportation and shipping company, Compagnie Maritime d'Affrètement (CMA) and Compagnie Générale Maritime (CGM) Namibia, in collaboration with the Walvis Bay Municipality identified four parks in Walvis Bay for their quarterly tree planting project where 48 Pork bushes were planted on 13 November. This project is in line with the CMA CGM Group's global reforestation initiative. The initiative, #PlantingForPlanet aims to plant 110 000 trees for each of the group's 110 000 staff members throughout 12 countries. With the assistance of the Walvis Bay Municipality's Parks and Cemeteries Supervisor, Lucky Shipanga and team leaders, Immaculata Kauzuu, Jason Haitembu and Stepahnie Ndelvelo, the local CMA CGM team planted 48 Pork bushes (also known as elephant bush, dwarf jade plant, purslane tree and spekboom in Afrikaans). “We chose the Spekboom, because of its resilience and ability to adapt to the environment, a very important consideration with Walvis Bay's climate. With a lifespan of up to 200 Years and being such adept carbon sequestrators - a succulent that helps fight air pollution. Essentially, it acts as a carbon sponge, absorbing carbon from the atmosphere and turning it into plant matter.” It has the ability to 'sequester' or capture four to ten tons of carbon per hectare! The CMA CGM Group is resolutely committed to continued sustainable development and to the preservation of the natural environment within our local communities. CMA CGM Namibia would like to thank the Walvis Bay Municipal staff for their time and assistance. “Not only did we have a productive morning but a very enjoyable one too!”

International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women In recognition of November 25 as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against women, I want to send a clear message and support all the other voices who are saying the same thing: violence against women and girls must end now. Globally, more than one in three women experience such violence during their lifetimes, and even more sadly, it is often at the hands

of someone they love. There is no excuse for gender-based violence, not in the United States, not in Namibia, not anywhere. This is an inexcusable

crime that governments, social organisations, and courageous individuals must end by working together. Last month, the

DJ Truckport Otjiwarongo Traveling from the coast has been made easy and comfortable for you and your family when driving past Otjiwarongo, the Gateway Capitol of the north. No longer are you required to go and fill up in town, where you will find long and congested queue of cars waiting to fill up or people standing all over the place making it unsafe for you to leave your car unattended. Here you will be delayed for at least an hour before you hit the road again, and hopefully with all of your belongings still intact. The answer therefore lies with DJ Truck Port, a Namcor Service Station which is about 500 meters from Otjiwarongo (from Kalkfeld side). The place is run by wellrespected business personalities in the Oil Industry, Dan-Boy Ndjadila, who also hails from the coast, and his wife Jurie, who together have 15 years of Service Station experience. Here you don't need to wait, as our staff recognizes that you have a long journey still to complete and thus will go full out to help you rejoin your journey as soon as possible. We don't allow hawkers on our premises in order to create a safe and conducive atmosphere for our customers. We want you to relax. At DJ Truck Port you will find a clean environment, clean toilet, best service, quality food, friendly and trained attendants, spacious parking and a baby changing station for mums on the go, to cater for all your traveling needs. Now you know why you must stop at DJ Truck Port, to avoid the congestion in town and now you also have a reason to support someone who hails from the coast. For any pre orders and or queries please don't hesitate to call our senior staff members Emma and Henry. Support local, because local works for you…….See you soon at DJ Truck Port Namcor and have a SAFE JOURNEY.

Biden-Harris Administration issued a National Gender Strategy – the first ever in the United States – and ending genderbased violence is a fundamental part of that strategy. Achieving gender equity and ending GBV are core to the United States' domestic and foreign policies, but there is still a long way to go. Every individual has i n h e r e n t d i g n i t y, rights, and deserves to

be treated with honor. Those are the values that Americans and Namibians believe. Together, we and everyone else who

holds these beliefs can bring us closer to a world where safety and security are guaranteed, and where everyone, including

women and girls, can live up to their full potential for the good of families, communities, countries, and the world.

Seaside Primary School Grade seven's graduates Rudi Bowe

Seaside Primary School in Walvis Bay had their first ever grade 7 graduation ceremony recently. The school opened its doors in January 2017. The graduation ceremony is connected to the past and future and the growth of the 144-grade sevens who are accommodated in four classes at the school. School Principal, Emily Ndemula, said the aim of the graduation ceremony was to appreciate the years these learners spent at Seaside and prepare them for the next stage of their education. “You are ready and more than able to carry the torch that we bestowed upon you. You have been a light and a pleasure to teach these past three years. We are very proud of you. Always remember to be kind, be a good friend, look out for one another, stay out of trouble, follow your dreams and always believe in yourself.” Ndemula also admired the school's 45 teachers for their dedication and hard work. “The love, dedication and commitment you've shown our learners in these challenging years are truly commendable. It is a privilege to work with such a strong team.” She acknowledged the important role parents play. “You are a vital component in the children's education. You have helped them grow, and we value your support. Without it we would simply not be such a marvellous school.”

Alle mal herhören Schüler der Privatschule Swakopmund werden zu Dramatikern. Das Fräulein von Scuderi als Hörspiel. In diesem Schuljahr haben sich die Schülerinnen und Schüler der Klasse 9 im Deutschunterricht mit Detektiv- und Kriminalgeschichten beschäftigt. Kommissar Wallander (Mankell), Sherlock Holmes, (Doyle), Miss Marple (Agatha Christie), Kommissar Bärlach (Dürrenmatt), wir hatten sie alle kennengelernt. Schließlich stießen wir auf eine schmale Erzählung aus dem 19. Jahrhundert von E.T.A. Hoffmann, bekannt für seine psychologischen und unheimlichen Geschichten. Er hatte sich bereits 1819 einen weiblichen Detektiv ausgedacht: Das Fräulein von Scuderi. Die gleichnamige Novellespielt in Paris im Jahr 1680. In den dunklen Gassen geschehen zu jener Zeit unheimliche Morde, die von der Polizei der Stadt nicht aufgeklärt werden können, während gleichzeitig der Sonnenkönig Ludwig IVX am Hofe ein unbesorgtesLeben führt. Tatsächlich hat sich E.T.A. Hoffmann historische Vorbilder für seine Erzählung genommen, denn Madeleine de Scuderi (1607-1701) war eine bekannte französische Dichterin des Barock, La Regnier (de la Reynie, 1625-1709) war der berüchtigte Generalleutnantder französischen Polizeiund Madame de Maintenon (16351719) war die Maitresse des Königs, der sie

später heimlich heiratete. Wir hatten uns gerade an E.T.A. Hoffmann, seine langen Sätze, den ungewohnten Wortschatz und die vielen französischen Namen gewöhnt, da kam der Schul-Lockdown und wir mussten einen neuen Plan machen, denn der Unterricht im Klassenraum war vorläufig nicht erlaubt. Statt der üblichen Textbearbeitung begannen die Schüler nun in tagelanger Hausarbeit die Erzählung in Dialoge umzuschreiben. Plötzlich kam Leben in die alte Geschichte, Figuren tauchten auf, bekamen eine Stimme und einen Charakter, schließlichen wurden Rollen verteilt und das Spiel konnteam Anfang sogar online beginnen! Später wurde das Nautilus Tonstudio in Swakopmund unser professioneller Partner bei der Produktion des Hörspiels. Wir bedanken uns bei David De Beer und Gernot Fritze für viele Stunden geduldiges Arbeiten beim Aufnehmen und Mischen der Dialoge. Es hat uns sehr viel Spaß gemacht! Und nun: Alle mal herhören – DANKE für's Zuhören! Das Hörspiel wird vom Deutschen Hörfunk (NBC) in den Weihnachtstagen übertragen. Das genaue Datum wird rechtzeitig bekanntgegeben.Außerdem wird das Hörspiel schulintern als CD oder Audiodatei verbreitet. (Heike Holch-Niebuhr)

Eleven year old wins Nedbank for Autism Series Rudi Bowe

They say dynamite comes in small packages and that's exactly what happened when the talented 11 year old Emile Vilbert (Junior) claiming all the spoils and won the 2021 Nedbank for Autism Series final with an impressive score of 37 points last Saturday 20 November at Omeya Golf Club. Emile Vilbert an 11 year old learner at Walvis Bay Private High School (WBPHS) was the winner of the second Nedbank for Autism Series with a Coastal Swing held Saturday 28 August 2021 at the Rossmund Desert Golf Course with 39 points . Dan Zwiebel from DZ Golf, the Nedbank for Autism Series Coordinator said that A total of 527 players participated in the 2021 Nedbank Autism Golf Series that consist of 10 events across our entire country to support the drive to create awareness for the Autism Association of Namibia. Zwiebel said that the Nedbank Autism Golf Series raised an amount of N$228 200 in support of Autism that is not a myth, not a stigma, not a curse, not a puzzle, just a different way of being and thinking and viewing and to Create Understanding through Acceptance. Petra Dillmann, founder of the Autism Association of Namibia, says that the continuation of support for the project will have a great impact as it increases the chances of sustainability towards supporting autistic persons, their parents, teachers and the community in learning about and retaining their awareness, understanding and knowledge about autism. According to Dillmann, the organisation aims to support parents, their children with ASD, adults with ASD, as well as friends and professionals who are interested in promoting the well-being of persons with autism spectrum disorders within Namibia, and to provide a network between the various autism organisations worldwide.

“We are absolutely dedicated to provide support and assistance as well as training in the field of autism to parents and professionals. In the current economic climate and with the diverse needs of various members of the community, this is becoming increasingly difficult,” said Dillmann. Dillmann said, ”We are particularly excited to host quality golf events at centres where avid golfing enthusiasts rarely get the opportunity to play in a professionally organized event virtually on their own doorstep. Undoubtedly, we will also have the opportunity to scouts for talent and thus contribute to the overall development of the sport country-wide”, said Dan Zwiebel, the Nedbank for Autism Series Coordinator.” Zwiebel said that the series will be held again in 2022 with Nedbank again as the title sponsor and all the co-sponsors. Zwiebel thanked s Nedbank Namibia and all the cosponsors of the event that are M+Z Motors, AfricaOnline, Engen Namibia, ComputerKit Namibia, Khomas Medical Centre, Taeuber & Corssen, Gondwana Collection Namibia, Safintra Roofing Namibia, Imperial, as well as Future Media as the media partner. The final results of the Nedbank for Autism Series final at Omeya Golf Club are;
