Old municipal building up for sale

Stop sexual abuse

Jade McClune

Since the completion of Council's new office block on Rakotoka Street the grand old municipal building in the centre of Swakopmund has struggled to define its place. The sale of the old heritage building by way of closed bid auction is now on the cards again. At its last meeting, Swakopmund Town Council approved a recommendation to set a minimum price of N$14.5 million for the sale of the property located at Erf 989. In December 2013 the property was valued by Mr Abel Schoeman, an appraiser appointed by the High Court, in the following way: N$8 million for 2 147 m² of land; N$6 075 000 for the main building; and N$150 000 for other improvements, to arrive at a total value of N$14 225 000. The Trust Estate Co valued the property at around N$14.5 million. In January 2010 the Trust & Estate Company had assessed the same property to be worth N$11 880 000, whereas Nasikama Property Valuation Consultants set the value at N$18.3 million. On 28 January 2010 Council set an upset price of N$15.1 million, but this was later repealed in June 2011 and a new minimum price of N$20.1 million was set. Council noted that the “new owner will have to invest considerable funds in order to renovate the building, which is deteriorating,” but, as the property is a listed building, any future alterations and renovations will have to comply with the Town Planning Scheme and would be subject to conditions and requirements set by the National Heritage Council. The NHC prohibits the demolition of any building in the conservation areas, which is older than 50 years, without the written consent of Council. Continues on page 2

Road carnage Claims four lives

Afrikanerkultuur in die woestyn

Piquet Jacobs and Madelaine Laubscher Coastal road users appear to have dropped their guard pertaining to road safety and are dismally failing to adhere to road regulations after the festive season. This gross negligence is evident in recent driving behaviour and has led to a sudden increase in fatal accidents which claimed the lives of four passengers over the weekend. A white Nissan 1400 (N 2230 S) crashed into a police bakkie (POL 7146) at the Narraville bridge on Thursday night at approximately 21:28. Emergency services responded and had to remove the trapped driver of the Nissan bakkie with the Jaws of Life. The driver sustained severe facial injuries and was transferred to Windhoek for treatment. The cause of the accident is unknown. The driver (aged 32) of the Nissan apparently failed to see the police bakkie which was waiting to turn right into the direction of Narraville and then crashed into it. The passenger (aged 31) of the Nissan was removed from the vehicle by paramedics and received treatment for shock and injuries to his chest. He was taken to the Walvis Bay Hospital and was then transferred to the Welwitschia

Page 10 Hospital where he is being treated for hemothorax (internal bleeding in the chest cavity). The Boost for Desert presence of petrol leaking from one of the Lion and Rhino vehicles presented a fire risk and fire brigade conservation officials were on alert at the scene. A blue Corolla (N 18155 WB) crashed into Fish Eagle Take Away on Friday morning at approximately 06:00. A customer seated at one of the tables inside the take away sustained injuries. The collision caused him to be trapped between Page 11 the car and some of the tables. St Gabriel Community Ambulance Services crew members Kudus kies arrived on the scene and stabilised the trapped and nuwe bestuur injured customer. He was then transported to the Page 19 Walvis Bay State Hospital for treatment and was later transferred to Windhoek. He sustained a left leg fracture. Two other customers narrowly escaped injury. The driver was transported away from the scene under the guidance of police officials. Continues on page 2



Road carnage An accident involving two vehicles occurred in Kuisebmond in Frankie Abrahams Drive on Friday. The passenger of a Nissan Navara sustained injuries and according to reports fled the scene of the accident prior to the arrival of medical personnel. The rest of the injured were transported to the Walvis Bay State Hospital by the St Gabriel Community Ambulance Services. Another fatal accident occurred on the B2 route, approximately one kilometre from Karibib on the way to Usakos. A sedan vehicle overturned after the driver apparently lost control while travelling with five occupants (including two children). The driver was apparently flung from the vehicle and was fatally injured. The rest of the injured were transported to Usakos State Hospital for further treatment and management. Three people lost their lives in a head-on collision on the B2 route on Saturday night. An eyewitness reported that a Toyota Cressida with registration (N 4344 WB) travelling from Swakopmund tried to overtake a vehicle and crashed into a VW Polo Vivo (BX 27 BW GP) around 21:00.“It happened so fast, I couldn't believe it. There was a loud noise followed by dust and flashing lights. We stopped immediately. A passenger from the Cressida fell out of the car and the driver started shouting for help

Continued from page 1 because he couldn't get out of the car. The next moment a car travelling from Walvis Bay approached with great speed and stopped just in time and narrowly avoided causing another accident” recounted an eyewitness on the scene. A pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in Kuisebmond on Monday morning at around 00:19 and sustained minor injuries. According to West Coast Safety Initiative, a motor vehicle accident occurred on the C33 route outside Karibib towards Omaruru near the airbase. There was limited information available, but no serious injuries were reported. Another accident reported by West Coast Safety Initiative occurred on the B2 route between Swakopmund and Arandis approximately 20 km from Swakopmund while travelling towards the coast. The driver of a sedan vehicle with three occupants allegedly lost control. The car overturned, some of the occupants were thrown from the vehicle and were scattered across the road. The Swakopmund Fire and Rescue Services made use of the Jaws of Life to remove a trapped occupant from the wreckage. E-Med Rescue 24 stabilised the injured at the scene before transporting them to Swakopmund for hospitalisation. One person was transferred to Windhoek due to injuries.

Old municipal building up for sale Continued from page 1 The municipality will consider making alternative parking space available as there is limited on-site parking at Erf 989. A Council resolution taken on 28 November 2013 said that in the absence of on-site parking Council would in future adopt a policy whereby, for the Conservation Area, business enterprises can acquire and develop alternative parking at a cost and location determined by Council. Parts of the old municipal building are currently occupied by the National Housing Enterprise, which will continue to lease the management committee room until November 2014 for a monthly rental of N$4 101. The Electoral Commission of Namibia will use Room 20 until 2 March 2014 as part of the ongoing voter registration campaign. The background to the auction is that the Ministry of Safety and Security had first applied in 2011 to buy the property, but for unspecified reasons, the ministry cancelled their application in August. The property was then sold by closed bid to Luxury Investments 111 (Pty) Ltd for N$21.6 million, but the sale fell through and was cancelled in April 2012. Full possession of Erf 989 will only be given on transfer of the Deed of Sale, Council said last week. If the latest move to sell by closed bid is not successful the municipal engineering department would continue to hold responsibility for the maintenance of the building.

Development of DRC to cost N$453 million Jade McClune Despite financial hurdles in its path, Swakopmund Town Council is pushing ahead with financing the installation of basic service infrastructure for poorer residents on the outskirts of the tourist town. At its first session for the year Council indicated that the cost of installing basic civilian infrastructure in the DRC will likely exceed N$453 million. Council agreed last week to use N$10 million from the Build Together Fund “as a temporary advance recoverable from the sale of erven after the formalisation of DRC”. The funds will be used to finance the first phase of construction. A further N$10 million will also be made available through the Property Development Fund, which expects to raise around N$123 million by March this year from erven already sold. Commentators after the meeting said they hope that the speeding up of construction could help defuse a potentially explosive situation ahead of elections this year, given that the residents of the areas have repeatedly clashed with the political authorities over the provision of basic services. The N$26.5 million contract recently awarded to Lüderitz-based Strydo Construction for the installation of water and sewerage services to certain parts of the DRC will, however, have to be financed from Council's own reserves until funding from central government becomes available. Council records indicate that five tenderers complied with the requirements, but said “it should be noted that the above estimate provides for the use of only one tenderer for all works.” Council said that despite the fact that the construction time may be reduced by bringing in more contractors the expected cost is likely to increase by N$4 million for every additional contractor, given the preliminary and overhead

costs associated with each operator. In November 2013 Council indicated that it intended to use savings earmarked for the development of infrastructure at Tamariskia Extension 3, including streets, water supply and sewerage works to pay instead for the development of infrastructure at the DRC area. At the time Council had resolved that “unused funds on all completed capital projects” should be allocated to the provision of basic services infrastructure at the DRC. The last meeting indicated that it is not yet certain when the funds for the Mass Housing Programme, launched by President Pohamba in December last year, will be made available to the local authorities. Given that the tender for the DRC would lapse on 31 March, the municipal leaders of the resolved to use available funds “on a temporary advance basis.” “To implement the available compliant tenders while the rates are still valid, and thus to accelerate the construction of services infrastructure within DRC”, the management committee recommended that Council approve the diversion of the funds on a “temporary basis” until the financing from the promised Mass Housing Initiative becomes available. Council thus decided that “permission be granted to Build Together beneficiaries to whom loans were allocated to utilise the funds for the construction of their houses”. As of November 2013, the resources of the Build Together Fund amounted to N$19 million, of which N$3 894,280 were “advances still payable to beneficiaries”.

The Governor of the Erongo Region, Mr Cleophas K Mutjavikua, gave the Municipal Council of Walvis Bay a congratulatory pat on the back for the investors that it managed to facilitate. He however cautioned them that, "this should not put you in a comfort zone. If the percentage of our performance was 51% or 55% we must up it further to 90%." The Governor delivered his Annual Address for the first time right after the first Ordinary Council Meeting of the Municipality of Walvis Bay, which took place last Tuesday evening at the Kuisebmond Council Chambers. The Governor remarked that the year 2013 was a challenging year to everybody in the region and that the drought experienced in the communal areas has affected those that reside in the urban centre as most of the urban centre residents depend on food supply from family members in the rural areas Governor Mutjavikua remarked that the function of governance in the region must be taken more serious and that those in governance bodies or the local authority need to understand that it is not about which position is occupied, but it is about delivering services to the Namibian people. "It is about effective and

efficient management of public affairs. During 2014, the Namibian people will demand services from us and if we don't deliver they will demonstrate and cause socially undesirable chaos. Let us rather be pro-active and be on top of our national assignment." He remarked that the role of local authorities in the contemporary era has changed rapidly and that other co-functions that were not traditionally under its domain must also be taken on. Investment promotion and the creation of a conducive environment in a local authority area had become more important than ever before. Regarding economic development the Governor said that Namibia weathered the global crisis and rebounded strongly with economic growth of 6% in 2010, the year after the start of the economic crisis. This solid growth was maintained at around 5% in 2011, 2012 while

the formal figure for 2013 is not available yet. He noted that value must be added to the process of accelerating land delivery for industrialisation. Negotiations for land like the 400ha portion of Farm 58, Walvis Bay that was requested by the Ministry of Trade and Industry should be expedited for employment creation. It is very important for those in the local authority to avoid bureaucratic tendencies and move fast with game-changer projects like the Industrial Estate. Such a project will open doors for lots of downstream industry formation and thus job creation and poverty alleviation. Regarding the deepening of the Harbour, he said more spin-offs are going to be there at the disposal of Walvis Bay's residents to reap the benefits. The Governor expressed the hope that the upgrading of the Walvis

Bay Airport will add value to the myriads of opportunities that is awaiting the region. He is of the opinion that this project is very important, not only as an emotional symbol, but to connect Namibia to the world. It will accelerate the services industry, movement of goods and especially fresh fish and oysters. Governor Mutjavikua remarked that the mushrooming of informal settlements is a reality that is confronting the regional and local authority as a collective leadership and that a strategic shift must be made to address this problem head on. He cautioned that the plans to expand the residential areas must be made known to the residents and they must be allowed to make suggestions. He referred to the fishing industry and said that last year was a reasonably good year for the fishing Industry and the programme of

the Ministry of bringing in new entrants was commendable. Some serious labour upheaval was experienced and he hopes that this year all parties will embrace the process of collective bargaining. In his closing remarks he said that the work at one of the mega mines, Husab, is progressing well and that it was a major relieve, especially after the closure of Areva Trekkopje Mine. Rössing is also doing well as well as Langer Heinrich under the current low uranium price. He also expressed the hope that Walvis Bay will receive a “share of the cake” after the Erongo Region hosted major tourism activities last year. He concluded by saying that it is the hope of the Office of the Governor that those in public office will beef up their working together (as public offices) for the good of their people.

JJD surprise Erongo's top achievers Piquet Jacobs The top 10 Gr 12 achievers in the Erongo region were generously rewarded for their hard work at an award ceremony held at the Town Hall on Thursday. Each candidate received N$10 000 from business tycoon Mr Johnny Johnson Doeseb towards assistance in realising their plans towards studying for the coming year. The top performer, Quinton Gertze from Da Palm Secondary School in Otjimbingwe, was present to receive his award. He was accom-panied with his proud parents. Khadisjah Goses, from Coastal High School was also present to receive her award. The other candidates could not attend the ceremony because of prior commitments with their respective tertiary institutions. Four of the candidates to receive awards matriculated at Kuisebmond

Secondary School, two at Coastal High School, two at Namib High School, one at Westside High School and the top performer from Da Palm Secondary School. Mr Doeseb delivered an encouraging speech and expressed his expectations of them to succeed in whatever they plan to do, “I want you to achieve greatness” he said. He also put emphasis on the concept of being successful, “The key is to have perseverance, and to be humble, to work hard and to never forget where you come from. Being successful does not necessarily mean being rich, but to reach your goals the honest and respectful way, that is true success” he concluded.

PSS honours High School Students Private School Swakopmund held its annual prize-giving ceremony in the Horst-Fritze School Hall last week. The students were awarded prizes for their academic achievements, their performance in sports and cultural activities as well as for services delivered in 2013. The master of ceremonies for the evening was the High School Phase Head, Mr Mark Stanton, who created a relaxed and entertaining atmosphere, which was much enjoyed by an appreciative audience. Throughout the evening quiz questions relating to the evening were posed at the students, this contributed to

the lively atmosphere. The top achievers in each grade were Paul Doyle (Grade 8), Jana Schutte (Grade 9), Natalie Visagie and Lara Winterbach (Grade 10), and Aidin Gibbons (Grade 11). Twenty scrolls and colours were awarded. An enthusiastic audience applauded Jaydee Nel, the winner of the Arts and Culture Trophy. The siblings, Eric and Daniela Kolb, were awarded the trophies for Best Male and Best Female Sports Achievement, while Nino Kutz won the trophy for Sportsman of the Year. Ms Urda Witte, who matri-

culated at PSS in 2008, delivered a motivational speech and gave especially the Grade 11 and 12 students some thoughtful advice: one should not become disheartened when the future does not always work out the way as planned. According to Ms Witte, this is not such a big issue - one should rather concentrate on the type of person one wants to become, since personal principles determine who one is. PSS wishes its High School students all the best for a successful 2014 school year.

Private School Swakopmund Big Walk

Anri Jacobs

Otjomuise Primary School benefits from “Reading for Life” Project

Private School Swakopmund (PSS) held their annual Big Walk on 25 January. Waltons sponsored this year's event and every child who finished 10 or 15 KM (walking on the beach) received a stationery gift. The winners took home prize money as well. The Walk serves as an annual fundraiser for the school and is regarded as a great “kick off" for the new year. Every year, at 8am, over 280 children, teachers and friends, plus an estimated 100 parents start walking from Long Beach to Swakopmund. Everyone agreed that the morning was perfect. Great weather and great spirits along with each grade dressing up for the big walk contributed to a fun filled day. Some dressed up as clowns, Dalmatians, Ninjas, Smurfs and many more. The event was concluded with a scrumptious braai.

The Trust, together with Book Den cc launched a “Reading for Life” Project in June 2013. This project was initiated to contribute towards children's education.

Pro-Ed tieners word Zero Hero's

At the same time a reading culture amongst children supported by the Trust is enhanced. Donations of three hundred and seventy two (372) good quality second hand reading books and eight (8) Bibles were received from Book Den cc clients and Ms Nangula Uaandja. The books were handed over to Otjomuise Primary School that is part of the projects supported by the Christina Swart-Opperman Aids Orphan Foundation Trust on 31 January 2014. The “Reading for Life” Project will continue until 2021. Furthermore six soccer balls, six netball balls and nineteen tennis rackets were donated by Mr Nico Engelbrecht from Pennsylvania, USA. The Trust donated twenty four tennis balls and two hundred and twenty five packets of crayons. The beneficiaries were Grade 1 learners of Otjomuise Primary School.

Dit is weer tyd vir dié jaarlikse Alco Free Feb, 'n inisiatief wat in 2010 deur South Africans Against Drunk Driving (SADD) begin is en ten doel het om bewustheid oor die gevare van drankmisbuik en veral dronkbestuur te bevorder. Pro-Ed neem vanjaar weer deel en daag ander skole en die gemeenskap uit om dieselfde te doen. “Ons poging is hoofsaaklik op die tieners ingestel omdat dit is waar ons as opvoeders 'n verskil kan maak”, sê mnr Deon Prinsloo, departementshoof van die hoërskool-afdeling van Pro-Ed. 'n Soortgelyke inisiatief het in 2008 in Australië begin nadat dit oorspronklik in 2006 in NieuSeeland ontstaan het. Vir die maand van Februarie (want dit is die kortste maand) word mense dus die wêreld oor uitgedaag om hulle lewers 'n blaaskans (of is dit 'n ruskans) te gee en geen alkohol te gebruik nie. Vir die wat dit te moeilik vind is daar 'n 10-dag uitdaging en die tieners kan Zero Hero's wees deur die Alco Free Teens te ondersteun . Lapelknopies is by die skool beskikbaar teen N$30 en word gedra om aan die dui dat jy die uitdaging aanvaar. Alhoewel nie elke ongeluk toegeskryf kan word aan alkoholmisbruik nie, is dit nietemin 'n bydraende faktor in 65% van motorongelukke. Volgens statistieke wat verkry is van die MVA

Fund het 556 mense verlede jaar hulle lewens verloor op ons paaie. Daar was 'n totaal van 3198 ongelukke aangemeld vanaf Januarie tot Desember en 5 527 mense is beseer. In die tydperk 22 November tot 29 Desember 2012 was daar 343 ongelukke in Namibia waartydens 725 mense beseer en 70 oorlede is. Alkoholmisbuik is moontlik ons land se grootste sosiale uitdaging. Dit vernietig gesinne, dra by tot sinnelose geweld, verkragtings, tienerswangerskappe en veroorsaak te veel ongelukkigheid in mense en kinders se lewens. Alco Free Feb is wonderlike manier om almal net weer te herinner dat alcohol nie iets is om ligtelik op te neem nie. Deelnemers laas jaar het na die maand gesê dat van hulle gewig verloor het, ander het meer geld gespaar, party het meer energie gehad en nog ander het beter geslaap. Ons hoop om dit ook hier in Namibië 'n jaarlikse instelling te maak. Vir meer inligting oor die SADD se inisiatief besoek Om meer uit te vind oor Pro-Ed se uitdaging, skakel 405-689.

Learning Right Kiddies Annual beach cleanup The Learning Right Kiddies Centre in the coastal town of Swakopmund held their annual beach cleanup last Saturday. There was an excellent turnout by the parents, along with their children. The beach cleanup was part of the school's early childhood awareness on littering and pollution, as participating children were as young as three years of age. The gathering took place at the Vineta Beach, opposite Wurstbude where we made our way along the beach to the mole. Children playfully collected litter under the watchful eye of the teachers and parents, who were also doing their part for a cleaner, safer coastline and environment. Our aim is to establish values of caring for our coast very early during childhood development to develop them into true COASTODIANS. Children will not only develop responsible behaviour of cleaning up the beach but also

acquire the sense of not littering at all, towards ensuring a sustained future for our coast. The occasion also provided the opportunity for playful bonding of children with their parents. The children were thereafter spoiled with more playful time in the portable kiddy pools and jumping castles. Parents could socialise around the barbeque stands, doing it the proudly Namibian way of “braai” with a supple mutton chop and sausage with our famous “rooster broodtjies” The organizers thanked Nacoma for the very lovely T-Shirts, Refuse Solutions for the skip, who have also decided to become a part of our cleanup and will be sponsoring our skip for the next 3 years and RO3 Water for their generous sponsorship of water.

Namib Times Facebook Reader’s Comments THREE DEAD IN ACCIDENT ON THE B2 A head-on collision on the B2 (between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund) claimed the lives of three persons (two females and one male). Gregory Irvin Lewin Itz sad was at the scene, duty calls, if only the drivers of Namibia can adhere to traffic law of the road to avoid such incidents...together we can make a difference!!! K'Liente Eye-Gates Amaviller Maybe now they'll understand the need of dual carriage between Swakop and Walvis bay. These leaders put money first before human lives. Spend money and save families. Money can always be made but a lost life will never b recovered. Naomi Marlene Gaven Although everyone is entitled to his/her opinion and I have the utmost respect for that, I think its a bit irresponsible to assume it is the driver in the WB car who caused the accident. Lets wait until we get all the facts, and not be judgemental. We don't even know in what condition that person is, he/she has family who reads these comments, and they are not in a very good space right now. Let's rather empathise with them. Rona Botha Ash With all due respect, I have seen how WB people drive, how cautious they are. I have lived in and seen how Gauteng people drive and take chances. I rest my case Maria Nenna Shilongo Izyl miryam van ellewee, you are a bitter and judgemental soul. How dare you insult the Namibia nation at large that they don't know how to drive. Is it only Namibia with accidents. Namibia statistic wise is not even in the top 40 countries with the highest accident rates. I am not condoning accidents nor those at fault. But where does Swapo fit in all these. Does Swapo drive. What of the countless accidents where only foreigners are involved. Repent and rather be constructive then judgemental and destructive. We are all humans and sinners and imperfect and prone to err including yourself. How do you cast stones as if you don't live in a glass house???? Let us come up with meaningful suggestions. Blames won't solve anything nor improve anything. Next time bitter comments must be kept to oneself!!! May their souls rest in peace and God have mercy on all of us. Please Lord forgive us. Izél Miryam van Ellewee I will bet you that the persons at fault is the driver of the WALVIS car!!! Namibians can't drive anymore. No one in this country knows the traffic rules and laws, no one respects themselves never mind other people's property and RIGHT to live, no one takes accountability for their actions and no one loves their neighbour as they should love themselves .... !!! Namibian drivers are terrible! Namibian police doesn't enforce driving rules. No one cares about the law or fear punishment because our government (SWAPO) is pathetic, they can't enforce the law if God himself came down and delivered the guilty into their hands!!! Every one just does what ever the hell they want and OTHER people pays the price for these wicked piece of shit human beings...... May the innocent parties Rest in Peace! Confucius Fixi Koopman Maak die pad breed genoeg. st speed reducers by langstrand se afdraai. op wat spend die government my tax geld? Neilo Van Wyk Tragic and when this fruitless bloodshed on our roads stop? People please wake up and follow the rules of the road. Senseless is all I can say. May their souls RIP. Valencia Dixon Izel, Please just migrate to another country! All the roads of Namibia need to be widened. LIKING the update creates awareness. Thersuan Duwayne Zane Fortuin Solution : reduce speed, put 60 speedbumps on the road between WB & SWK , every 500m should be 1. Dandago Gawanas No comment, since 1 Jan till nw, only 32 days but hw many people died nw..kom ons buig tot ons kniee en begine bid. May ur souls rest in peace. Patrick Koopman Its a pity the drivers who causes the accident always survives. I suggest the Swk-Wb roadblock should be permanent. Drunk driving, unlicenced drivers increases when the festive season ends. David Phatkop Ya-Shikwaya God wat have we done, the road become a blood shed this day, drivers lets drive responsible and carefully. My their soul rest in peace. Vanessa Jacobs Izel Are you a judge now you already found the guilty party and sentenced them but now Swapo is also at fault whatever they did. Mxm poor soul. Let the right people do their job and dont let bitterness and anger cloud your judgement. In our beautifull country we dont need this negative attitude like yours. Martina Lackey People, why does everyone blame the road? it is the driver of a car that causes an accident. Sad but true. May these people rest in peace. Tragic

Hammer Kam'dulunge Haikali Let us just change our driving attitudes, they plays a major roles here. Michael Witbooi The saying speeds kills is a not a saying it's a true reality!!!!..... speed kills...... really it kills......SAD! God be with the ones staying behind? Michaela Vondrousova My question is: why are the cops not ensuring that people are not speeding, overtaking in the wrong spots, etc. ??! I googled the most dangerous roads in the world and this road (between Walvis and Swakop) is the 11th on the list. Cops need to start fining people. Pure and simple. Helen Nieuwoudt The authorities can build roads and make laws but that is of zero significance if people still break the rules of the road or speed.....RSA has the same problem look at our statistics. Duelette Schoonwinkel Its so sad. Im sure this accident could be avoided. Be patient on the road. Rona Botha Ash This road needs to be widened, at least by one more lane, to make it easier to overtake, which I'm positive, is where and why most accidents happen. And don't tell me it can't be done, as there is more than enough space, the fat cats just need to make do with a smaller cut of tax payers money for a while. Lives are more important than their over the top lifestyles Frans Penny I suggest a two way road btween the two coastal towns. Bare in mind the number of cars on the road are on increase on a daily basis. We should juz adhere to the rules of the road ad as well as the praying to god to be with our road users. James Nampala Why cnt they limit all cars in Namibia to a speed of 120 km/h as a maximum speed? Rollin Van Wyk Accidents r unexpectable its sad to hear how road users drove n ignore road signs,,,,n there is no need to blame officers because thre r road sign who can guide u how to drive,,were not to overtake n speed limits eg....... so why ignoring them???????? lets prevent ths by chnging t way we used t road n respect t next road users. Michael Thiessen Everybody says a duel carriage way will help. I don't really think so, people will speed more then, the solution is to brim the speed limit down to 80km and have more traffic cops on the road Granville Louw Its really sad how many lives have been lost in this few weeks of the new year on our roads across the country , my question is why can't there be permanent road blocks through out the year. Why only over the holidays. Veronica Bothma Daar moet permanent verkeersmense op die pad sigbaar wees. Daar was n swart Polo wat vandag op al die volstrepe en bulte teen n baie hoe spoed verby gevat het en een keer ook amper kop aan kop veroorsaak het. Ons het verkeer geskakel......... hulle het nie gereageer nie. Gehoop hulle sou hom inwag in Walvis....... Maar geen reaksie....... HJJ Mouton God have mercy on us...VERY SAD INDEED. NAM TOPS LIST OF MOST CAR ACCIDENTS IN THE WORLD..RIP Sabe Elombo This is tragic. We pray that their souls may be taken into God's hands. I extend sincerest consolation to the our fellows whose loved ones perished or got injured in this tragedy. God will give you strength to endure through this volatile experience. Naemi Mum's Angel thats the way they were supposed to leave this planet...otherwise they would not be dead....if God say yes no human will say no dear u know that death can push someone e.g. Being told by yo mum to stay home t night in a certain night but since yo last day has approached u will have to go,what will happen ....stabed to death.....we should take things of the world ......and stop blaming people though one is to be blamed...may their souls rest in eternal peace...we all walking dead on this planet only that no one knows the day of his/her departure....Amen




Fashion for Africa Anri Jacobs “I did not choose the life of fashion designing. It is in me and I was born with it” says Bernadette Shalumbu. According to her, fashion is the designer's unique ideas and this defines a designer or an individual's personality. “I think in Namibia the fashion taste is more influenced by the western culture. Thus my designs are African modern, embracing African fabrics to create modern fashion trends,” she added. For her the best part of being a fashion designer is turning design ideas into reality and seeing someone wearing it. Bernadette started off by designing matric farewell dresses and then moved to a more African modern design style. She says the time it takes to complete a design depends on the urgency. “Sometimes a customer approaches me for a dress they need in a few days and then I can go with very little sleep to complete it. I think it's all about being passionate, because most of the time I look forward to seeing the design completed and in a way it's rewarding” she says. Some of Bernadette's favourite designers are her grandmother, her sister and Pia Ausiku. “My grandmother is my inspiration as she has been making clothes for years and now that she can no longer due to age, I believe it's my responsibility to keep the talent shining.” Bernadette use to make clothes for herself but officially started working in 2006 after completing a part-time course in Fashion Designing. She is mostly inspired by African prints fabrics and mostly works with cotton fabrics, colourful and bright colours. Although she hasn't worked alongside any other designers at a design level on projects, she has worked with other Namibian fashion designers to host fashion shows. For the future Bernadette plans to have her clothes in some of the Namibian boutiques and to sell her designs to the international market. “We have an ongoing agreement with La boutique at the Vineta Shopping complex, to sell my clothes so everyone can have a look at my work here.” When asked what she believes makes a quality article of clothing she replied, “It’s a combination


Bernadette Shalumbu of the uniqueness and the quality of the fabric used.” Bernadette believes in her own work and agrees that she considers herself to be an artist. “I believe an artist is a person gifted with unique ideas and they use certain forms to bring these ideas to life. Being unique as a designer, customer satisfaction, being organised and good time management are some of the most important trades of a fashion designer. Bernadette hopes that all young talented fashion designers out there will not give up on their dreams, because they can be achieved through hard work and encourage them to take up a course or acquire some training in Fashion Designing.

GOtv launches in Swakopmund Mavourlene Gaes

GOTv digital television was officially launched in Walvis Bay in December last year and had their launch in the coastal town of Swakopmund on Thursday last week. The organisers say that GOtv provides the best solution for television consumers to enjoy uninterrupted viewing ahead of the analogue switchoff in Namibia scheduled for 2015. GOtv also provides a range of options to select from, that are not only affordable and accessible, but relevant as well to television lovers. The General Manager of MultiChoice Namibia Mr Roger Gertze, said that the launch of GOtv positively contributes towards creating employment, empowering retailers, agents as well as small and medium business enterprises (SMEs) through the sales and take-ups of payments for GOtv subscribers. Accor-ding to Gertze, viewers can now watch GOtv without using a satellite dish with the GO-tenna, that will enable them to connect their GOtv decoder and antenna themselves. The current single price offer of just N$499 includes a GOtv decoder together with an outdoor antenna and a one month subscription to GOtv plus. The launch took place at Pick 'n Pay and everyone was clearly having fun, especially with the many prizes that were given away on the day. Multichoice also gave away two school stationery hampers to two West Coast FM listeners, as well as five shopping vouchers worth N$200 each. They also gave away GOtv kits for free to anyone who purchased their decoders. A model displaying a Shalumbu creation

Afrikanerkultuur in die woestyn Anri Jacobs Die 17de Januarie was 'n suksesvolle naweek waar verskeie onderwerpe en toesprake gelewer is en inderdaad postitiewe veranderinge vir die Voortrekkers en lig op hul toekomsplanne geplaas is. Wat 'n voorreg was dit nie, om opnuut lewe in die majestieuse Namib woestyn te kon herontdek. Volwasse Voortrekkers van regoor Namibië, asook eregaste van SuidAfrika, was betower deur Tommy Collard se fenominale kennis en insig oor ons Namib woestyn. Sy span van Living Desert Tours het hul, op hul kniëe in die sand van die oudste woestyn ter wêreld, in verwondering stil laat raak met al die lewe in die duine wat mens andersins nie van weet nie. Die Namibiese Voortrekkers het ook geskiedenis gemaak en die boeke is herskryf toe mnr Nico Tromp, as Hoof Beskermheer van die Voortrekkers in SuidAfrika en Namibië, deur die Voortrekkers se Hoofleier dr Danie Langner, ingehuldig is tydens 'n swierige funksie by die Seaside Hotel. Dit is die eerste keer in die geskiedenis dat 'n Namibiër vir dié besondere posisie benoem is. Mnr Nico Tromp was die eerste President Verkenner in Namibië en het sy Voortrekkerloopbaan met passie uitgeleef. Die Voortrekkers se vorige hoofbeskermhere was 'n galery van goewerneur-generaals, presidente, eerste ministers en

ministers. Die Namibiese Voortrekkers is baie trots op Nico Tromp en weet dat hy hierdie posisie met uitnemendheid sal beklee. Die benoeming en inhuldiging van beskermhere van 'n kultuurorganisasie soos die Voortrekkers is nie maar sommer net nog 'n moet-doengebeurtenis nie. Beskermhere is veral simbolies van die nuwe strategiese ruimtes waar in Afrikaanse kultuurorganisasies hulself bevind. Aangepas om te oorleef Niemand kan 'n reisiger kwalik neem wanneer daar met die eerste oogopslag gedink word die Namib woestyn is 'n dor en leë landskap sonder lewe nie. Gelukkig is die eerste indruk heeltemal verkeerd. In die Namib is daar nie net 'n ryke verskeidenheid van lewe nie, maar het diere en plante hulself aangepas om wonderbaarlik in die woestyn te oorleef. Afrikaanse kultuurorganisasies bevind hulself vandag in vele opsigte in 'n woestynlandskap. Vir dekades was die staat vir Afrikanerkultuur soos 'n veilige oase. Die Voortrekkers se hoof beskermhere was 'n galery van goewerneur-generaals, presi-

dente, eerste ministers en ministers. Die verhouding tussen staat en kultuur het voordele gehad, maar daar was ook groot nadele. Afrikaners se politieke party, kerk, koerant, skool en kultuur was benoud en ideologies verweef. Toe rusies, twiste, partypolitiek en skeuring in Afrikanergeledere sy kop uitsteek, het ook die Voortrekkers nie daarvan gespaar gebly nie. Soos wat die beklemmende nasionalistiese bande in die negentigerjare skiet gegee het, het Afrikaners hulself aanvanklik in 'n kulturele woestyn bevind. Getalle het gekrimp, hulpbronne het opgedroog en kulturele selfvertroue was min. Byna onsigbaar, soos die koffieboonkewer, het Afrikaners stadig maar seker deur middel van innoverende planne, hoëfunksieprestasies, deursettingsvermoë en onbeperkte energie by die nuwe woestyn omgewing aangepas. Afrikaners het gevind dat selfs in die warm sandduine daar genoeg koelte is vir taal en kultuur. In die koelte van woestyn bossies het Afrikaners ook genoeg gemene delers gevind om met ander taal- en kultuurgemeenskappe saam te werk om Afrikaans in die woestyn te laat blom. In die woestynlandskap is dit kultuur en ekonomie wat mekaar wedersyds aanvul. Kultuur-organisasies sal nie net oorleef nie, maar van krag tot krag gaan as hulle daarin

slaag om as kulturele entre-preneurs finansiële hulpbronne en kundig-heid in gemeenskappe te ontsluit. Kulturele entrepreneurskap is die enigste manier om Afrikaanse kultuurerfenis suksesvol en volhoubaar te bevorder. Afrikaanse kultuurorganisasies, soos die Voortrekkers, sal vir jong Afrikaners relevant bly as hulle met die bewese s u k sesrese p van kultuur , avontu ur en n a tuur 'n brug b o u tussen d i e ekono miese en kulturele wêreld . Veral om-dat jong Afri-kaners in die wêreld van werk hulself toe-nemend as entre-preneurs sal moet onderskei. Afrikaners het in twee dekades ontdek dat die woestyn lankal nie meer 'n plek van bedreiging is nie. Dit het 'n plek geword waar Afrikaners nie net die vermoë ontwikkel het om te oorleef nie, maar om voluit te leef. Fyn kyk en fyn trap Een van die belangrikste en eerste oorlewingslesse in die Namib is fyn kyk en fyn trap. Fyn kyk verryk 'n reisiger se woestyn ervaring wanneer jou oë inge-

stel is op die kleurpalet van sandduine, die lugspieëlingop die horison en die verskeidenheid van woestyndiere, reptiele en plantegroei. Fyn trap help jou om nie oor die pofadders in die sand te struikel nie. Op die oog af lyk Afrikaner organisasies een en dieselfde, maar fyn kyk help om raak te sien dat Namibiese Afrikaners lankal nie

aan hulself dink as die vyfde provinsie of die verlengstuk van SuidAfrika met sy probleme nie. Namibiese Afrikaners het in twee dekades eie kultuurvoete gevind, eie kultuurorganisasies gestig, monumente en terreine gebou, kultuurfondse geskep, eie helde ontwikkel en antwoorde vir hulle uitdagings gevind. Namibiese Afrikaners is nie net staatkundig nie, maar ook kultureel onafhanklik. Die ontwikkeling van netwerke en vennootskappe vra van kultuurorganisasies 'n fyn trap om nie die eiesoortige uitlewing van kultuur dood te trap nie, maar raak te

sien en te waardeer. Die verskeidenheid verryk en verdiep Afrikanerkultuur in Suider-Afrika. Kulturele volwassenheid 'n Besoeker aan die Namib kan nie anders nie as om hom te verwonder aan die gebalanseerde verweefdheid van woestyn habitatte waar dier en plant van mekaar afhanklik is. Die balans t u s s e n eiesoortigheid e n v e r weefdheid is 'n voor-waarde v i r ' n florerende kultuurorganisasie. Afrikaners se kulturele band word nie deur staats-grense beperk nie. Enersyds bind kultuur saam, bring kultuur bymekaar, vorm kul-tuur oor grense waardes, tradisies, onthou stories en karakter. Andersyds kan kultuur nie beperk word, beklem word of gestandaardiseer word nie. Om die fyn balans tussen eiesoortigheid en verweefdheid te handhaaf, is dit nodig om 'n nuwe kulturele volwassenheid te ontwikkel. Kulturele volwassenheid wat kultuur desentraliseer deur ruimte te bied vir die ontwikkeling van 'n eie identiteit, eie besluit en aanvaarding van eie verantwoordelikheid. Ook 'n kulturele volwassenheid wat kultuur nie privatiseer deur net op my eie klein kultuur-

hoekie te fokus nie. Kulturele volwassenheid beteken juis om wyer te kyk as die eie deur medeverantwoordelikheid te neem vir die behoud van Afrikaanse taal en kultuur in veral skole en universiteite. Hierdie opvoedkundige instellings is immers die lewensaar van gesonde kultuurgemeenskappe. Kulturele volwassenheid bied aan organisasies die vermoë om goeie verhoudings met die staat en ander instellings te handhaaf, sonder om 'n kritiese ingesteldheid prys te gee of geboelie te word. Kultureel volwasse gemeenskappe neem oor grense hande, vestig suksesvolle vennootskappe en netwerke, kan akkommodeer en saamwerk tot voordeel van Suid-Afrika, Namibië en al hul mense. Dit is die kulturele volwassenheid wat nodig is vir Afrikanerkultuur om in die woestyn te floreer. In die woestyn is groot getalle nie die belangrikste sukses faktor vir 'n florerende kultuurgemeenskap nie. Meer belangrik is aanpasbare kultuurorganisasies wat met selfvertroue inhoud gee aan nuwe ruimtes en oor grense brûe kan bou. Kultuurorganisasies wat nie werk vir 'n beter verlede nie, maar met koppe wat nuut dink en hande wat dienend na 'n beter toekoms vir ons kinders reik. Die woestyn is 'n plek van groot ruimtes en onbeperkte horisonne. Die toekoms lê oop.



Boost for Desert Lion and Rhino conservation Madelaine Laubscher

The handover ceremony of two Toyota Land Cruisers sponsored to the Desert Lion Conservation Trust and Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) by NAMSOV Community Trust took place on 27 January 2014. The Deputy Minister of Environment and Tourism Pohamba Shifeta attended the event along with the managing director of Bidfish, Mr Jan Arnold, Chief Executice Officer of SRT Ms Marcia Fargnoli and Ms Tuna Willem and Jerome Mouton from NAMSOV. According to Ms Willem of NAMSOV, the branding of the research vehicle was attended to and most of the sponsors have been accommodated. “Printworx in Swakopmund are thanked for their assistance. The full sponsorship for the vehicle, training of guards from the community and collars are N$1 200 000,” she said. According to information provided, humanlion conflicts are arguably the biggest threat to lions in Namibia and elsewhere in Africa. There is a need for proactive management of human-lion conflict to ensure the long term conservation of the species. In 1998 an intensive research project was started on the desert lions, termed the Desert Lion Conservation project with the aim to collect sound scientific data, address human lion conflicts and to develop a conservation strategy. “Lions are fitted with radio collars and are tracked and observed to record behaviour, movements, grouping patterns, reproduction

and mortality. Lions are tracked using GPS and satellite technology, a light aircraft (fitted with radiotracking equipment) and by vehicle. Direct observations and monitoring lions in the field for extended periods are the primary means of collecting data. Lions over the age of two years are marked or radio collared, and individual records are kept of all lions in the population. Emphasis is placed on monitoring lions that disperse and occupy new habitats and on those that live near local communities.” “Human-lion conflict is addressed by developing localised conflict management plans. As a species, the lion is highly adaptive and resilient. Current research findings demonstrate that Desert lions can survive in extreme conditions. They do not need to drink water and feed on gemsboks, ostriches, and occasionally on seals. They breed rapidly under ideal conditions and are quick to expand into areas of suitable habitat. The value of the unique Desert lions to the Namibian tourism industry is of great significance. However, to ensure the long-term conservation of Desert lions, we need to monitor their population ecology and manage human-lion conflict.” “The Desert Lion is a prominent feature in Namibia and is highly

One of the donated vehicles

CONSERVATIONISTS: (fltr) Mr Jan Arnold, Driver, Deputy Minister Shifeta, Ms Marcia Fargnoli (STR) and Mr Jerome Mouton (Namsov CEO) valued, both aesthetically and financially by the growing tourism industry. Namibia has received international recognition (e.g. CITES) for successful conservation efforts such as the communal conservation programme that led to significant increases in wildlife numbers especially in the arid areas.” “With the growing wildlife populations the conflict between lions and the local people has intensified as lions are killing livestock more regularly. In protection of their livestock farmers often shoot, trap or poison lions. These local communities bear the costs of living with lions but do not share equally in the benefits from tourism and they receive little assistance

in managing conflicts. The goals are to collect baseline ecological data on the population dynamics, behaviour and movement of lions, monitor key ecological and biological parameters of the desert lion population, monitor the frequency and impact of conflicts between people and lions, develop and implement human-lion management plans at local community level, develop and promote specialised lion ecosafaris and other forms of sustainable utilisation, to collaborate with government, local communities and NGO`s to further lion conservation and to make important information available to the world through publication and the internet. More information can

be found at www. This project is driven by Dr Phillip Stander.” Mrs Fargnoli from SRT said “we are extremely grateful for the donations. The desertadapted black rhino (Diceros bicornis bicornis) surviving in the Kunene Region (former Damaraland and Kaokoland) in the arid, north-west of Namibia are the only rhino worldwide, surviving on communal land with no formal conservation status. Furthermore, they are the largest truly free-ranging black rhino population left in the world. However, in the early 1980's in this vast, beautiful and spectacular desert, a savage slaughter of desert wildlife took place. As the number of rhinos shrank, resulting in their near extinction, a Trust was formed with the aim of ensuring protection of the remaining rhinos while affording elephant and other wildlife the chance to recover to sustainable numbers. With the help of international funds, Save the Rhino Trust Namibia was officially registered as Welfare Organization number W.O. 1982.” “Initially, a combination of ex-poachers and members of the local community were employed by Save the Rhino Trust to monitor and protect the rhino. These men had extensive knowledge of the habits of these animals

and the rugged terrain they inhabited. The aim of preventing the extermination of the endangered black rhino on communal land has been enthusiastically supported by chiefs, headmen and the local communities. Since the Trust was formed, there has been close collaboration with Government, the local communities, and both national and international partners. This coalition has been central in achieving the aim of enhancing security for the rhino, monitoring and researching the rhino population, and providing benefits to the

community through conservation and tourism.” “SRT has an administrative office in Swakopmund and field bases at the Ugab River, Wêreldsend, Mai Go Ha (Palmwag) and Mbakondja. The organisation consists of a committed staff of local Namibians who have spent the better part of their lives living with black rhinos in the Kunene. These dedicated people constantly monitor on foot, with camels, by air and by vehicle in a concerted effort to protect these rare and critically endangered animals,” she concluded.

Kudus kies nuwe bestuur Otis Finck

Kudus Rugbyklub het verlede week hulle Algemene Jaarvergadering gehou en sowat veertig spanlede asook belangstellendes het ' n nuwe bestuurskomitee vir die jaar gekies. Die voormalige voorsitter Chandler Plato het uitgewys dat dit beslis nie 'n maklike taak is om 'n span te bestuur nie en het 'n beroep op nuutgekose lede gedoen om te doen wat van hulle verwag word en ook vir samewerking gevra. Die tesourier Burchell Sitzer het die finansiële verslag voorgelê en dit is deur die lede aanvaar. Sitzer het daarop gewys dat 2013 'n swak finansiële jaar vir die span was in vergelyking met 2012. Die klub het N$9 083 ontvang vanaf die Namibiese Rugby-unie in 2013 en moes die meeste uitgawes self dek. Kudus Rugbyklub het ook geen hoofborg vir die afgelope jaar gehad nie maar het verskeie borge ten opsigte van truie en vervoer ontvang. Allister Carolissen is genomineer en toe eenparig as Kudu Rugbyklub Voorsitter verkies vir 2014. Hy het die klublede bedank vir hulle vertoue in hom en gesê dat hy uitsien na die uitdagings wat voorlê en dat daar 'n harde taak op alle nuutverkose bestuurslede wag. "Hierdie jaar begin

klaar beter vir ons as klub omdat ons dit reggekry het om die Algemene Jaarvergadering soos wat beplan was kon laat plaasvind. Ek belowe dat besluite geneem sal word met die klub se belange in gedagte" het hy gesê en uitgewys dat spelers en ondersteuners vinnig is om klippe te gooi en dat daar 'n groot gebrek aan ondersteuning bestaan en dat daar van sommiges verwag word om al die nodige werk te doen. Carolissen het ook gesê dat die bestuur alles in hulle vermoë vir die klub kan doen maar dat die spelers die werk op die veld gaan doen en die uitslae vir die klub bring. Alle nuutgekose bestuurslede is genooi om so gereeld as moontlik 'n draai by die oefenveld te kom maak. "Klubs sukkel maar gewoontlik aan die begin van die jaar maar ons gaan beslis slaggereed wees met die afskop van die liga." Ten slotte het Carolissen vir Enzio Coetzee, Kevin Zaal en Chris Klaasen (nuwe spelers) amptelik by die span verwelkom en aangekondig dat die sowat N$40 000 wat benodig was om vir spelers se gimnasium fooie te betaal ingevor-

der is en dat daar gewerk word om so gou as moontlik die skrummasjien te herstel en beskikbaar te hê vir oefensessies. Derek Klazen wat die klub se beskermheer is, is gekies as ondervooorsitter. Hy het die lede bedank en belowe om alles in sy vermoë te doen om die klub te help. Hy het ook 'n beroep op alle klublede gedoen om te verenig onder die vaandel van die klub en gevra dat die spelers sal speel om te wen. Chandler Plato is as hulp-sekeretaris gekies. 'n Klubsekretaris sal nog gekies word. Donald De Koker vervang vir Burchell Sitzer wat vir die afgelope ses jaar as tesourier gedien het. Anthony Jevu gaan as skakel tussen spelers en die bestuur dien. Mario Mouton, James De Koker en Burchell Sitzer is gekies as addisionele lede op die bestuur. Collin Steves is gekies as wedstryd sekretaris Kudus Rugbyklub het ook 'n Besigheidseenheid in die lewe geroep met die doel om na die finansiële welstand van die klub om te sien en om fondse te bewillig en donateurs te oorreed

IN BEHEER VAN SAKE: Die nuwe Kudu bestuur om te belê in die klub. Die totstandkoming van die eenheid is eenparig deur Kudu lede aanvaar en bekragtig.

duleer vir 11 Oktober. Die klub is besig om n ses-'n- kant raak rugby toernooi vir Saterdag te organiseer en daar

Achmet Abrahams wins January Seniors Golf Day Last Thursday we had our first month-end competition for 2014. What a great turnout with 22 golfers arriving for the big golf day, or was it for the halfway breakfast. It was also a real pleasure to have our sponsor, Ryno from Ocean View Spar, join us for the morning's golf. Ryno is one of those lucky natural golfers, who plays once a year, but still is able to hit the ball a mile. Generally this month's competition results were rather average. The only excellent score and winner for the day was Achmet Abrahams with 39 points. In second place and winner of the count-out on 34 points was Gerd Vogel. In third place was Willem

Engelbrecht. With Achmet's win he has moved to the top of the Seniors Ladder. Question is though can he stay on top for the next two months to take home the trophy. The “JoCo” prize went to UK visitor Keith Lester. I guess he was influenced by the recent performance of his cricket team. A special thank you to Tienie and Tom for cosponsoring the day's golf, and for putting together an interesting program for the past month.

Dominic double clinch derby for Blue Waters LHU Blue Waters defeated Eleven Arrows 2-0 in Kuisebmond on Saturday. Nigerian striker Edom Dominic, who joined Blue Waters on transfer from Arrows in the beginning of the 2013/2014 season, scored in each half and secured the victory for his new club.

The game was off to a slow start with both teams cautiously testing each other. The first real goal scoring opportunity presented itself to Arrows Mwanei Mapenzi whose shot went narrowly wide in the 17th minute. Arrows keeper Fanuel Merero denied Blue Waters’ Paulus Job in the 23rd minute. Referee Reinold Shikongo issued a yellow card to Blue Waters’ Gregory Auchumeb for a foul on Donald Geiseb in the 26th minute. An alerted Jealous Mutelo, who made his return as goal keeper after a prolonged 10 game absence due to injury, again denied Geiseb in the 29 th minute. Arrows defender African Jossob stopped Hendrick Somaeb in his tracks with a goal saving tackle in the 33 r d minute before Edom

Dominic scored his first goal for Blue Waters in the 35t h minute. Dominic's effort spurred his club mates into action. Blue Waters attacked and created numerous scoring opportunities but failed to convert any of them into goals. Enrico Hoebeb came close and nearly extended Blue Waters' lead after receiving a through pass from Somaeb in the 38th minute. Paulus Job wasted a chance in the 42nd minute and blasted another attempt over the crossbar before the end of the first half. Arrows keeper Merero denied Hoebeb in the 50th minute. Merero held on to a well struck rocket from Tobias Mekondjo, orchestrated from outside of the box in the 55th minute. Jossop again managed to save Arrows some blushes by clearing a Somaeb header from the goal

ON TARGET: Blue Waters striker Edom Dominic (in blue) tussles for the ball with Eleven Arrows Richard Tjitavi in Kuisebmond on Saturday. Dominic scored both Blue Waters’goals in the 2-0 victory against Arrows line in the 59th minute. On the other end Meroro were called into action and pushed an Enrico Hoebeb shot over the crossbar in the 73rd minute. He also

blocked a well struck and goal bound Tobias Mekondjo curling free kick in the 78th minute. Referee Shikongo handed Arrows

defender Richard Tjitavi his marching o r d e r s f o r remonstrating in the 80th minute. Dominic struck again in the 82nd

minute after he found himself on the receiving end of a defence splitting pass and in the right place to deceive Merero and

successfully put the ball into the back of the net. Merero denied Somaeb twice in oneon-one situations and Continues on page 19

Britten Ready for South African Challenge Walvis Bay teenager, Brendan Britten has left for South Africa where he will play the two top amateur tournaments on the South African Golf Calendar. After completing his matric at Walvis Bay Private High School in 2013, with a credible pass mark, Brendan Britten now turns his attention to the number one passion in his life, golf. Brendan has been a member of the Namibian Senior National Team for the past three years and will once again be in the national ranks at the Zone VI tournament to be played in Stellenbosch during April 2014. Before then however, he has the exciting challenge of playing in the South African Amateur Stroke Play Championship from 4 to 7 February. From 23 to 28 February he plays in the flagship event of the South African Amateur golf scene, the South African Amateur. These tournaments both have a truly international flavour with top amateur players from Scotland, France and other countries also participating. Britten is excited about the challenge which he sees as a chance to measure where his golf

is at present, and also to gauge how the swing changes he is working on with top South African Coach Llewellyn van Leeuwen, have impacted his game. When speaking to him over the weekend, he said he was happy with his game and positive about the tournament. When asked about his future plans Britten said he was going to use this year as preparation for his future in golf and will, finances permitting, play in as many tournaments as possible in South Africa this year. His aim is to be at a level early next year to be competitive in the Sunshine Tour “Q School” where the top thirty players receive their Tour Cards. Britten wishes to thank the following who have supported him thus far in his golf career, Walvis Bay Golf Club, Gert Olivier from Walvis Bay ProShop & Driving Range, Johan Esterhuize of BRG Biokinetics and Christelean Botha of Chamore Travel Agency.
