Namibia to Implement Entry Visas for Non-Reciprocating Countries

The Ministry of Home Affairs, Immigration, Safety and Security (MHAISS) has announced plans to introduce an entry visa requirement for nationals from countries that havenotreciprocatedNamibia'sfavourablevisapolicies.

This directive, unveiled by Etienne Maritz, Executive Director at MHAISS, aims to establish fair and balanced diplomatic relations. The newvisarequirement will affect citizens from 31 nations, including Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany,Britain,andthe

United States This policy shift comes in response to years of Namibia's one-sided goodwill gestures, where favourable visa treatment extended to nationals of various countries was not reciprocated. Maritz emphasised Namibia's history of generous visa policies, which have notbeenmetwithequi-

valent measures from the affected countries.

“This decision underscores our commitment to fostering fair diplomatic relations,”

Maritz stated The ministry will provide detailed information on the implementation date and application procedures through diplomatic channels in Continues on page 2

Ministers Address Fishermen Concerns and Complaints

The Minister of Fisheries Derek Klazen and Minister of Labour, Utoni Nujoma recently convened a closed-door meeting at with ex-fishermen in Walvis Bay, to address their concerns and complaints raised over the Governmental EmploymentRe-DressingProgramme(GERP).

According to Klazen, themeetingwasheldto ensuresmootheroperations and sound labour relations in the fishing industry - more specifically within the cluster of employees employed under GERP “Despite the numerous complaints of the fishermen, the two ministers only met with committee members in the past This time around,theydecidedto face the ex-fishermen with all their issues head-on, with the sole objective of earnestly discussing the matters raised and, “hopefully put the matter to bed,” Klazensaid.Thefisheriesministersaidthatit is important to give clarityagainstgrowing misleading utterances whicharefalselyassuring all ex-fishermen of jobsatsea.“Itissimply not possible to reemploy all ex-fisher-

men on board fishing vesselsbecausefollowing their separation from their previous employers their previous jobs onboard fishing vessels have been taken over by other Namibians,” Klazensaid. “Thisisin part the reason why mostofthoseemployed undertheGERPdonot all have physical work fortheirhandsnowand continue to receive a monthly salary while outside the premises of their respective employers,” he added. A Cabinet decision directed the Ministries of Fisheries and Marine Resources and of Labour Industrial Relations and Employment Creation to secure fulltime and permanent gainful employment of specifically former NAMSOV employees andthosewholosttheir employment within the

fishingIndustryduring 2015 and immediately thereafter due to several reasons. After the Cabinet Directive and the efforts of the two ministries and their staff, a total of 2 483 ex-fishermen has been absorbed through GERP, of which 550 former fishermen employed in the horse mackerel sub sector whileafurther1933ex fishermen are in the hakesub-sectoragainst a tonnage of 18, 370 MT of Hake and 16,500 MT of horse mackerel Following theprogramme,fishermen have been resigning and petitioning the two ministries over employment conditions, with many insisting on jobs on fishing vessels as they are fishermen “As we convenetoday,Iwould like to stress that the government, through

the two ministries, is not an adversary, but a reliable partner and initiator of this whole process. I would further like to emphasise that this programme wasestablishedtoprovide dignity and sustenance to the affected ex-fishermen. The intention in creating this programme was not to undermine or oppose the very individuals whose livelihoods is our commitment,” Klazen said. Nujoma told the fishermen that they have been trying to resolve the complex disagreements which exist between the employers and employees.

Nujoma reminded the fishermen that Namibian fish stocks are declining,andthatthey need to take that into consideration while discussing the issues around their employment.

GERP Needs to be Reviewed

Because of the challenges the Government Employment Redress Programme (GERP)isexperiencingfromfishingcompaniesandthefishermenthemselves,the program needs to be reviewed said Fisheries Minister, Derek Klazen at a recent mediabriefing.

Thefisheriesminister saidatthemediabriefing that the decision came after the Ministers of Fisheries and Marine Resources and Labour, Industrial Relations and Employment Creation held a consultation meeting in Walvis Bay with the re-employed fishermen under the programme,unionrepresentatives and eight companies to understandthechallenges.

Klazen said, “the Government Employment Redress Programme (GERP) has encountered several challenges some of which were genuine,whileothers appear to be superfluous and unduly influenced by political opportunism, personal gratification, conflicts and other dubious interests He said the meeting revealed there were initially fewer than 2 000 exfishermen in the group who lost their jobs, but more have joined the group, claiming they were among the Okapale fishermen “About 500 people resigned from Cavema Fishing. There were also workers from Pemba Bay,avesselthatwas

not working any more with also had 450 factory workers, consisting of women and men under the care of the National Fishing Corporation of Namibia (Fishcor) and more than1000employees.

Klazen said, when the expression of interest with companies went out, we tried to put the women in factories

This group embarked on a mass demonstration and handed petitions to these companiesandtheministry, of which responses were given at the meeting with the exfishermen. Klazensaid the companies under the programme were asked to employ the group on boats, at factories or in any job related to the fishing industry and were allocated quotas according to negotiations andagreementwiththe ministry on a certain rate.“Whatwerealised is that the rate is not sufficient for the companiestocharterorbuy their own boats. The companiesrealisedthat although they need boats, it does not make economic sense to bring in boats, because the amount of quota they received is not enough.” Accordingto Klazen, some companies also complain-

edthattheirquotaonly allowsthemtopayemployees a certain salary, with some fishermen paid while not workingbecauseofthe unavailability of vesselsandfactories.

“The fishermen are unhappythattheyonly earn about N$4 000 or N$5000whentheyare home or working at factories, while those on vessels earn about N$16 000 plus some benefits “There are not enough boats They are called when positions arise and are working on a rotation basis.We will go back and discuss our findings and renegotiate with the companies.”

Klazen said, “we cannot live with this unhappiness. I ask the affectedpeopletogive us an opportunity to get our findings togetherandworkonstrategies. He commended the participating companies for trying hard to make the programme work but notedthattheministry has the right to withdraw its agreement with those who are failingtoperform,and to consider which companies provide proper employment

Namibians are entitled to decent work and a decent standard of living. “We also employ other Namibians. While these ones were strikingin2015,others were employed. It is a challenge for companies to employ these workersnow Thereare not enough resources, and it is impossible for the government to provide more quota. If we had the resources, we could solve the problem overnight,” Nujomaadded. According to Nujoma the government cannot overlook the scientific findings and end up withoutresources.

“The sardines are already wiped out becauseofoverfishingby foreign trawlers. If we are not careful with hake and horse mackerel, the same will happen. We probably have to look at companies with available fishing boats and considerthem. Participating companies were warned not to victimise the workers who spoke out,”Nujomasaid.

Topnaar Primary School Suffers Major Renovation Setback

TheJPBrandPrimarySchool,withmorethan280pupilsfromgradeone toseven,andtheonlyschoolthatservestheTopnaarcommunityofUtuseb about 50 kilometres outside Walvis Bay, recently suffered a major renovation setback aftera fire destroyed the accommodations facility of oneofthematronsandthestoreroomsituatedattheschool.

According to the school's principal, Anna Maldrid Josti there was a lot of screaming, and she initially thought that someonewasfightinguntilone of the learners came running into her office screamingthattherewasa fire “We could only manage to grab the bed and the television of the matron, and when we wantedtograbsomemore items,thefirehadalready spread. Sheaddedthatthe block that caught fire was attached to the sleeping quarters block where somegirlsatthetimewas sleeping. “We managed to get them out and saved themattresses. Westilldonotknowwhat causedthefire,butweare thankful that no one was injured,”shesaid.

“Community members assisted in extinguishing the fire until the Walvis Bay fire brigade arrived,” she added and continued, “the next day all classes were suspended, as a psychologist visited that school and suggested that the burn -down area be t covered or that the debris

be removed, as it's been a traumatic experience for the learners.” Josti describ the incident as a ed massive setback on the plans to replace the windows Now the building has been affected by the fire any of these buil- M dings are wooden structures and are highly flammable. Josti said, “our firstpriorityistonormalcy and ensure the safety of to ourlearners.

Hence,weneedimmediate assistance to repair the damaged infrastructure andpreventsuchincidents inthefuture.Wealsoneed tonowconcentrateonhow to clear the debris, to get theplacebacktonormalso that we can assist the children in forgetting this traumatic event and then where to temporarily accommodate the matron andsortoutthegirls'hostel accommodation block as there is no electricity in thatblockatthemoment.

Jostifurtherstatedthatthe reduced water pressure at the school is one of the factorswhytheycouldnot extinguished the fire in time. “The water pressure

has been reduced, due to theveryoldwaterpipesof NamWater, therefore the school also deals with a shortage of water.” She said that if the pressure isn'treduced,thepipesare prone to burst, and the schoolwillnothavewater foradayortwo.Shesaida proper structure needs to be built for the matron, as she is the one who looks afterthegradeonetothree learners. “We call on the business community and the surrounding communitytoassisttheschool in cleaning the area and rebuild the accommodation facility of the matron and the school's storeroom. We also have two schoolgirls who lost their uniforms in the fire, we lost a number of school books,whicharealreadya challenge to acquire and we need to continue with our envisioned plans,” Josti said and concluded thattheschoolhasplansto expand the facility from a pre primary school up to grade 11. “This will assist that the community children to not drop out of school when they go to highschool,astheyareall based in Utuseb. This is caused when the learners need to go to high school, most of them do not have relatives in Walvis Bay to go to, they then have to resort to finding hostel accommodation in Swakopmund, where there is only one hostel, with Omaruru, Usakos or Okambahe as alternative options.”

Fisheries Minister Says Petitions Received

are Genuine

FisheriesandMarineResourcesMinister,DerekKlazenstated that a large portion of the petitions being received is genuine, while others appear to be influenced by political opportunism, personal gratification and otherinterests, at a meeting with fishermen from the IyalooWomen Investment GroupandWaluFishingInvestmentsatWalvisBay.

According to Klazen, the petitions are selfserving and spurred by a lack of understanding,notonlyoflabour laws, but also relating to a lack of understanding regarding which matters are to be dealt with in terms of the Labour Act.” He said both the ministries of fisheries and of labour were directed by Cabinet to secure full-time and permanent employmentofspecifically former Namsov Fishingemployeesand those who lost their employmentwithinthe fishing industry in 2015. This led to the absorption of about 2 483 ex-fishermen into the hake and horse mackerel subsectors through GERP with 550 former fishermen that were employed in the horse mackerel sub-sector, while another 1 933 ex-fishermen were in the hake subsector, against a tonnage of 18 370MT ofhakeand16500MT


Klazen said, “GERP programme is not a continuation of their previous jobs, but a new offer aimed at simply providing jobs to them within the vertical integrationoffishing. Thisverticalintegration orsupplychainconsists of catching, freezing, packaging, marketing and sales of fish, its related products and other marine resources, amongothers,andisnot specificallydesignedto offer the ex-fishermen seamenjobs.Iammentioning this as an important clarification against growing misleading utterances falsely assuring all exfishermenjobsatsea.It issimplynotpossibleto re-employallex-fishermen aboard fishing vessels because their previous jobs aboard fishing vessels have been taken over by other Namibians following their separation fromtheirpreviousemployers.”

According to Klazen

this was part of the reason why most of the employeesunderGERP donotallhavephysical work while continuing to receive a monthly salary outside the premisesoftheirrespective employers.

Labour minister, Utoni Nujoma said the country has limited fish resources, but that the governmentistryingits best to accommodate everyone. “You should also be aware that we have limited fishing resources. The fish is graduallydeclining. Many trawlers came fromdifferentcountries after independence to fish, and the pilchard industry is completely dead,” Nujoma added. “The minister of fisheries listened to the scientists when they do the assessments. They have told him that the resource is declining. The ministry has a limited quota available and it must be divided among the right holders to employ our people,”Nujomasaid.
