Political clashes loom over Swapo property deal Jade McClune The long-running controversy surrounding the sale of a prime piece of property in Swakopmund to the Swapo Party at a rockbottom price is set to escalate.

The property in question, measuring 4 363 square metres, is located right opposite the new municipal building in Rakotoka Street. It was originally leased to the Swapo Party in 2001 for nine years and 11 months at a nominal cost of N$10 per year, on condition that it be used to create a self-help and training centre for artisans and construction workers. “The Swapo Party will purchase the land from Council without having to compete by closed bid, tender, or auction to obtain the land,” municipal officers wrote on Monday in response to questions raised by the public. On January 2013, Council repealed the price of N$250 per m² and offered the erf at a firesale price of N$30 000 (N$6.7 per m²). Continues on page 2

Roads extremely busy Local and foreign visitors who flocked to the coastal towns of Swakopmund, Walvis Bay and Henties Bay for the holiday season started to return to their respective home destinations on Sunday afternoon. As a result, the roadblock outside Swakopmund was very busy and long queues of vehicles could be observed. Traffic volumes were high at the road blocks outside the nation's capital on Sunday, as holiday-makers returned home. The traffic volumes are expected to remain high until this weekend. Aubrey Oosthuizen, the Coordinator of the West Coast Safety Initiative at Swakopmund expressed concern about continued road accidents and suggested joint efforts from all stakeholders as the solution to address the situation. He attributed road accidents to speeding, drinking-and-driving as well as overtaking at prohibited places and cautioned motorists to be considerate of other road users to prevent loss of life. According to Inspector Robert Kundu of the Namibian Police Force there were no reports of Continues on page 2

virus. Cholera can lead to acute diarrhoea and occurs when the intestines are infected with the bacteria, namely Vibro Cholerae. The employee of NamWater was asked for a response on the cholera outbreak in the Kunene region. “I am aware of the problem. There is a possibility that someone from the Kunene region might have travelled to the Erongo region and carried the virus over to a resident at the coast. However, this is just a possibility. I cannot confirm any of this. As I said the matter will have to be looked into and the water will have to be tested first before any confirmation can be given” he reiterated. Mr Kevin Adams, the public relations officer from the Walvis Bay Municipality said that he spoke to the health inspectors and officials from the water department. “The water has been tested continuously and no problem has been found with it. Speculation that the water is contaminated is completely false. It is becoming a popular trend to blame the water every time a stomach problem occurs, but we can confirm that the water is clean and good to consume” he concluded.

road accidents. He reiterated calls to road users to continue to adhere to road regulations to avoid any loss of life. Police impounded several vehicles for various reasons and those who failed to provide convincing reasons were penalised. The officers were also looking for stolen items and, in the process, a Jackpot machine which was transported from Okahandja to Windhoek was confiscated for lack of papers to prove ownership. According to reports by the NBC the Okatana Service Station, the main bus terminal at Oshakati, has been extremely busy since Sunday. The terminal has been overcrowded with passengers wanting to return to their destinations across the country after spending their holiday in the north. Travellers wanting to make use of public transport were also noticed waiting for transport at the Ondangwa Shell Service Station. The Chairperson of the Namibia Bus and Taxi Association, Pendapala Nakathingo, urged holiday makers who used public transport to journey back as early as possible in order to avoid the annual overcrowding of terminals and transport shortage last week.

Political clashes Continued from page 1

Following a number of objections raised by the Swakopmund Residents' Association (SRA), the question was also raised in parliament in March 2012, when Mr Anton von Wietersheim of the Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) objected to the sale of erf below market value. He said the property was valued at around N$2.6 million in 2012. “The sale of Erf 3486 at market-related prices – as stipulated in the lease conditions – could do wonders in terms of making funds available for the servicing and provision of land in the municipal area… with a view to alleviating the extreme housing plight of Swakopmund inhabitants, particularly with regard to informal settlements,” he told parliament, adding that the sale below market value was “a despicable decision by the Swapo-dominated Council” and that “it serves only in the interest of selfenrichment of the party.” Paragraph 7 of the original Lease Memorandum stipulates clearly that, “On termination of the period of 9 years and eleven months, the lessee shall be obliged to purchase the property against the ruling price at that time”. The area was formerly zoned as “light industrial” and was valued in 2012 at N$605 per m², amounting to a total price of N$2.6 million. The SRA objected to the deal and argued that the buyer should not get “an unduly favoured price of only N$250 per m²”. According to Council records, “The bottom line is that the objector [SRA] believes that the lease agreement is not honoured and the purchase price is heavily under priced and therefore an average valuation price must be adapted instead.” Council had first approved the sale of Erf 3486 at a price of N$250 (+15% VAT) per square metre on 27 May 2010, before the lease agreement lapsed on 28 February 2011 and recommended that the sale be approved. Council dismissed the objections at the time. The Management Committee argued that “It is Council's prerogative to determine the selling price as initiated by the valuators. The

valuations received from valuers are only to guide Council in determining the purchase price. Based on this, the lodged objections do not hold ground and therefore cannot be supported.” Council then retrospectively amended its property policy in January 2013 and decided to sell the prime property to Swapo for a meagre N$30 000 plus 15% VAT. Under the new property policy, any organisation registered with the Electoral Commission of Namibia can apply for land, which will be made available at “a subsidised price”, no more than the original cost of servicing the erf and that the price should not be higher than the date on which the services were installed. Municipal officers said that in future “all applications by political parties will be considered on the same terms”, although internal sources have pointed out that there are no erven available for that price. Although Council retains the right of first refusal, it is also a matter of public concern that there is nothing to prevent the buyer from selling on the property at market-related price, as Council cannot unreasonably withhold approval for such sale. The SRA indicated this week that they will oppose the deal and “intend to draw the Anti-Corruption Commission's attention to this deal” for investigation. Mr Lutz Hecht said “the Swapo party is making use of their majority to enrich themselves at the expense of the taxpayer. We are not against the fact that Swapo buys an erf, but proper procedures must be followed. We need to fight for democracy. This is not the end of the story…” Mr von Wietersheim of the RDP said yesterday that he had been under the impression the transaction was cancelled, and said that the new deal seems to circumvent “existing rules and regulations.” The rezoning of the erf from “light industrial” to “office” was finalised in November 2013, clearing the way for the transaction to be advertised in December. The controversial transaction was published in the local press on 20

December 2013 and in the national press on 27 December. The Local Authorities Act of 1992 stipulates that documents pertaining to “such property will lie for inspection by interested persons for a period of not less than seven days after the last date of the publication of such notice,” and that objections must be lodged within 10 days. Given that Council offices effectively closed on 24 December and reopened on 2 January 2014, this then meant documents pertaining to the deal were effectively only available for inspection on two days, (2 and 3 January). The General Manager of Corporate Services & Human Resources, Mr Marco Swarts, said yesterday that they do not “have a restrictive policy” and will accommodate people who have genuine concerns. He said Council would not impose an unreasonable time-frame and that the inspection period usually lasts between three and four weeks. Although the Act of 1992 does not specifically stipulate seven working days, he said they tend to use working days as a guideline. Mr Swarts said interested people can still contact his office to inspect the documents, and if they feel they did not have sufficient time to inspect the documents, it could be grounds for objection to the transaction. He noted that given the notice period ran over the holidays, it could possibly be extended, adding that residents who consider the matter important can approach the municipality. Mr Philipus Heita, the Regional Coordinator of the Swapo Party said that “Everybody has the right to apply for land. The local authority is not there only for the Swapo party, but for all the people. There is no opposition from our side if other parties want to apply for land.” He said that the property would be used mainly for the party's offices. Asked whether the unions would be able to stay on, he said that “After the approval of the deal, we will have internal discussions with the unions” about the way forward. The closing date for objections to the deal is today (Tuesday 7 January).

Heated debates over Swakop riverbed Jade McClune

Despite several objections on the table Council decided to go ahead with its plan to lease a section of property near the mouth of the Swakop River to an operator who plans to promote cultural tourism projects. The owner of Kazak African Experience Tourism, Mr Ismael Nawaseb said in his application that he intends to set up a “tourism cultural village” at the coast and applied for 1.6 hectares of land between the Paintball Centre and Tiger Reef. The issue caused some consternation among existing leaseholders and property owners in the area. Mr Peter von Ginkel who runs the Paintball Centre objected that Kazak African Experience Cultural Tourism CC did not exist as a company when they applied for the portion of land. Mr von Ginkel also objected that the notice advertised was wrong. According to Council minutes, Kazak African Experience Cultural Tourism was “only registered recently on 19 Jun 2013 (as close corporation) … which is after Council already approved to lease the area to the applicant”. Council responded by noting that “Notice 49/2013 was cancelled and replaced … and these (new) notices indicated that the cultural village to be established by Messrs Kazak African Experience Cultural Tourism CC will include: serving African cuisine, cultural shows, theatre, youth activities, education programs, cultural meetings, arts and

crafts, music, dance, drama and performance arts.” Council however admitted that the open air restaurant as mentioned by the objector was incorrectly advertised and irrelevant. The original notice also did not indicate that the property would have to be rezoned, but Council noted last month that the property will be rezoned “as a separate process”. Asked why the rental rates were not published, Council said that it is not obliged to publish the rental payable. The property would be leased at a rate of N$0.30 per square metre, the same rate as the Paintball Centre. Mr A van Biljon, owner of the Stiltz also raised several objections, most of which were dismissed. Mr van Biljon said that in leasing the area for the stated purpose “Council is acting unlawful and not in terms of the Town Planning Scheme”, as the area is zoned as “Special” for the purpose of holiday houses and a caravan park. Council noted that it would have to be rezoned to include “business use and tourismrelated activities.” Mr van Biljon's own application to purchase the same portion of land in August 2010 had also been turned down. He argued that the planned activities next to his property would have an effect on businesses in the area, but Council responded by saying that it “does not protect existing businesses from competition”.

Although Mr Nawaseb's company was not registered at the time of his application, Council said “There is no hidden agenda for leasing the proposed area to Messrs Kazak African Experience Cultural Tourism… Since the Close Corporation is now registered as an entity all matters relating to this transaction will become part of the CC”. Council however had to backtrack on its earlier resolution, taken in 28 November 2012 that Kazak African Experience Cultural Tourism be allowed to proceed while the rezoning is in process. At the last meeting for the year it was decided to dismiss the objections and to write to the Minister of Regional and Local Government to seek permission to allow Kazak to continue with the lease of the area, while the rezoning is in progress.

'n Kop-aan-kop botsing by die mini-sirkel in Vrede Rede straat, op die pad vanaf Swakopmund na Hentiesbaai, het so byna noodlottig geëindig nadat spoed en vermoedelik dronkbestuur die oorsaak van die ongeluk was. Die voorval het omstreeks 17:30, Vrydagnamiddag plaasgevind, nadat die bestuurder van 'n Mazda sedan (NW 15531) volgens ooggetuies met 'n hoë spoed om die sirkel gejaag het en beheer oor die voertuig verloor het. Dit het aanleiding daartoe gegee dat hy tromp-op met die voertuig van me Isabel Morros gebots het.

Keeping watch Editorial Comment: Some amongst us once again and deliberately continued to show a total disregard for the law with regard to the sale of alcohol on closed days and the use of fireworks and setting off fire crackers in residential areas in order to liven up our festive celebrations. The Namib Times posted a photo on its Facebook page of an individual carrying two plastic carrier bags on Christmas Day and questioned what was happening. Instead of realising that the issue at hand was a blatant disregard for the law, we were lambasted for being inquisitive. The Media and journalist in particular are not there to upheld the law but as is the duty of all citizens, we definitely have a role to play in ensuring that the law is being upheld. Hordes of people were observed purchasing liquor from a well established business in town on Christmas Day. The owner was approached and alerted about what was happening. He became defensive and agitated and arrogantly requested us to mind our own business. The police was informed about this blatant disregard and contravention of the law. A call to Commissioner /Hoebeb confirmed the suspicion that it was illegal and thus unlawful to sell liquor on Christmas Day. Unfortunately the officers on duty had other priorities and reneged to follow up the issue as a matter of urgency. When they were eventually instructed by the powers that be and dispatched to visit the business and arrived there, all illegal activities had ceased because when we returned to the shop, the cashiers started to inform customers queuing with liquor that the sales of the intoxicating liquid would be discontinued for the day from that moment onwards. To the owner of that particular business and all those who made themselves guilty of selling and buying liquor on closed days in 2013,

this time you might have been let off the hook. We have however learned a valuable lesson. Next time when we come across a similar transgression we will first alert the police and wait and see what transpires. The recent festive season again produced its fair share of fire cracker-induced distraught humans and animal's alike. Where I lived, loud bangs sporadically echoed and were followed by the continuous howling and barking of agitated dogs. On New Year's Eve and New Year’s Day all hell broke loose. It sounded like an intense gun fight between warring factions. Who's to blame for ignoring the ban on fire crackers and the prohibition of the use of fireworks in residential areas? Do we just blame the shops that sell liquor and cigarettes to minors and fireworks, or do we blame parents who buy fireworks and allow their children to set them alight in public areas to no avail and without any impact towards redressing the situation? This also applies to the complete disregard of many other by-laws and laws pertaining to for example the dumping of rubble in residential areas, illegal shebeens and the sale of cigarettes and liquor to minors being transgressed daily. Whose task is it to ensure that the municipal by-laws and the laws of the country are upheld and how do we go about ensuring people abide to the law? Its a pity that we are inclined to mend our ways after tragedy struck! Otis Finck

Years ago: Nearly R4 milllion in crayfish exported from Lüderitz Friday, January 10, 1964 Page 8 The main industry at Lüderitz is the crayfish industry. Last year frozen crayfish expected from Lüderitz, mainly to the United States, was valued at R3, 317, 597. At present there are two organizations engaged in the crayfish industry at Lüderitz, Messrs, S.W.A. Fishing Industries Ltd. and Sea Products S.W.A. Ltd.

The Port of Walvis Bay The Port of Walvis Bay is a natural gateway for international trade to and from the SADC region to Europe, the Americas and the Far East. Namport's strategic goal is to consolidate the Port of Walvis Bay as a regional gate way as well, serving as a reliable and efficient interface for imports and exports within SADC, and to and from the west coast of Africa and other sub-Saharan African countries. Through the Walvis Bay Corridors, the infrastructure and location of the Port make it suitable to serve SADC import- and export bound sea-borne cargo. As such, the Port provides a cost-effective alternative to those in South Africa, which operates at maximum capacity and whose turnaround times on cargo handling are dependent on weather conditions. The Port of Walvis Bay is one of Africa's most efficient and best equipped, with the capacity to handle more than 8 million tonnes of cargo. The Port is linked to Namibia's air, rail, and road network, making it ideally placed to service landlocked countries in southern Africa, especially through the arteries of the Walvis Bay Corridor Group. The harbour consists of two sections: the commercial harbour, which is managed by Namport, and the fishing harbour, which is owned by the fishing industry. The commercial harbour offers a range of terminal facilities that can handle bulk, containerised, frozen and dry cargo. The Port of Walvis Bay is strategically located halfway down the Namibian coast, with direct access to principal shipping routes. The Port is the regional hub for central and southern Africa. It is secure, congestion-free, efficient and of worldclass standard. Turnaround times for offloading

vessels vary from 12 to 15 hours for container vessels; 24 to 48 hours for bulk vessels, depending on tonnage and shipment; and between 18 and 20 hours for break-bulk vessels. The Port boasts developed-world infrastructure and equipment, enabling the safe and reliable handling of cargo. Maximum security measures and procedures are in place, including closedcircuit TV. The Port is International Ship and Port Facility Security Code compliant. There are no delays because of weather conditions as the Port experiences temperate weather throughout the year. The Port offers a thriving Syncrolift ship facility to these facilities, Namport has added a floating dry dock that can lift vessels up to 150 m in length with a 25 m beam and displacing 8,500 metric tonnes, and Namport continuously develops and improves its equipment and services. The Port of Walvis Bay is a natural gateway for international trade to and from the SADC region to Europe, the Americas and the Far East. Namport's strategic goal is to consolidate the Port of Walvis Bay as a regional gateway as well, serving as a reliable and efficient interface for imports and exports within SADC, and to and from the west coast of Africa and other sub-Saharan African countries. Through the Walvis Bay Corridors, the infrastructure and location of the Port make it suitable to serve SADC import- and export bound sea-borne cargo. As such, the Port provides a cost-effective alternative to those in South Africa, which operates at maximum capacity and whose turnaround times on cargo handling are dependent on weather conditions.

Each of the two companies has three quotas – a total of six quotas per annum. Each quotas is made up of 30 000 units and I the quotas is reached an additional 15% is allowed. Last year was the first time that the quota was filled. There are some 45 to 50 fishing boats each with a crew of 10 to 14 men, engaged in the crayfish industry. The boats operate in the rocky bays ranging for about 180 miles north and south of Lüderitz. Boats are usually out at sea from two to three days. The new pilchard processing factory, Angra Pequena Fisheries, also has a crayfish quota. The value of crayfish products at Lüderitz last year totalled R3,821,112 made up of Canned crayfish – R442,707; frozen crayfish tails – R3,317,507 and crayfish meal – R60,818. Although it is known that there are tunny, marlin and other fish off Lüderitz the “white” fishing industry as such has not yet been exploited. Up to now the only interest shown has been in pilchards and crayfish.

Fishing vessel presumed lost then sails into harbour Friday, January 17, 1964 Page 14 Wild rumours of the Lüderitz fishing vessel SEABIRD having sunk near Chamois Bay, south of Lüderitz, and members of the crew being picked up by the Police on the deserted coast on Wednesday proved unfounded when the crayfish boat with all but one of the crew members steamed into Lüderitz at 4 p.m. that afternoon. A message was received at about 10 on Wednesday morning that the SEABIRD had sunk just off Chamois Bay. The off-shore diamond dredgers Diamantkus, Barge no.111 and Seymour all working in the vicinity immediately started a search. An aircraft was sent out from Lüderitz to join the search but no sign of the missing boat or survivors could be seen. Mist closing in hampered the operations and the boat was presumed as having been lost with the crew aboard. Later one member of the crew was picked up by the Oranjemund Police who has also rushed to the scene. Then out of the blue, the SEABIRD steamed into Lüderitz about four o'clock. It transpired that the SEABIRD ran on to a sandbank near Chamois Bay. One member of the crew, thinking they had struck a rock, took fright, jumped overboard and started swimming for the shore. The skipper of the fishing boat sent a lifeboat after him but he refused to climb in and be taken back to the stranded boat. Under its own power the vessel pulled itself off the sandbank and made for Lüderitz.

Busy harbour Friday, January 17, 1964 Page 16 The Walvis Bay harbour had a busy week – on Wednesday there were eight ships in port and by yesterday morning it had dwindled to three but three more are expected up this weekend. According to the latest shipping roster it appears that the port will remain busy with 16 more ships still to call this month. The Dutch vessel TOWA which put in here about a fort night ago with a fire in a cargo of bran/rice in her no. 3 hold is expected to sail today.

Human trafficking in Southern AfricaSADC crafts a regional response Trafficking in persons is a major international issue but poor documentation in southern Africa is masking the extent of this modern-day slavery. Despite its rising profile in many parts of the world, and periodic efforts to raise public awareness in southern Africa, the region remains a fertile ground for traffickers who prey on the vulnerabilities created by a number of factors. These factors include conflict, poverty, limited access to healthcare and education, gender inequalities, high unemployment, and a general lack of opportunities, especially for women. Poverty and inequality are the major challenges facing SADC in this regard, with negative impacts on many aspects of human and social development. The SADC International Conference on Poverty and Development noted in 2008 that poverty affects as much as 45 percent of the population in the region and is particularly acute among vulnerable groups such as rural and peri-urban households, and families headed by older persons and children due to the impact of the AIDS pandemic. The region is hardest hit by AIDS whose impact is leaving many widows and child-headed households, often teenagers who must provide for a number of younger siblings. Such conditions have forced some women and girls to turn to prostitution or begging for survival, thereby exposing them to criminal syndicates that traffic in persons. Just what is trafficking in persons? According to a United Nations Protocol (2000) popularly known as the Palermo Protocol, this refers to the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of persons by means of threats or use of force for purposes of exploitation. A distinction is made between Trafficking in Persons (TIP) and smuggling, although there are linkages between the two. Human smuggling refers to the illegal movement of an individual into a country in which she/he is not a national or a permanent resident. The smuggled individual is assisted for a fee by criminal syndicates to cross into another country. Smuggling ends with the arrival of the migrants in the country of destination whereas trafficking involves the ongoing exploitation of the victims to generate illicit profit for the traffickers. Smuggling is always cross-border whereas trafficking need not be. TIP can occur regardless of whether victims are taken to another country or if only removed from one place to another within the same country. In the case of trafficking,

the victims are moved from one area to another for exploitation, while those smuggled willingly participate in the vice and may or may not be exploited. Exploitation of TIP victims takes several forms. Victims, mostly women and children, are often enticed to leave their homes with false promises of jobs but are later subjected to sexual exploitation, forced labour,

slavery or even the removal of body organs. The modus operandi used by syndicates includes false newspaper advertisements for jobs in towns or other countries. In other cases, young children are kidnapped and sold to work in factories, plantations or sweat shops; young men are forced to work in labour markets such as agriculture and textile industries for little or no pay; and babies or very young children are stolen or bought for illegal

adoption. Representatives of 12 member states of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) met in Johannesburg, South Africa, in early December to take stock of these challenges and develop strategies to end trafficking. The head of the SADC Gender Unit, Magdeline Mathiba-Madibela, said this is “no longer just a security issue but a human rights issue that is affecting our society,” and she u r g e d southern African countries to “break the silence”. While older women and men as well as children as young as five are forced to beg and steal, work as domestic slaves or forced into pornography and sex work, young wo-men are at greater risk because traf-fickers can make a lot of money by forcing them into prosti-tution. Abandoned children are also vulnerable. With-out parents, guardians or anyone to take care of them, abandoned children seek refuge in orphanages and shelters, or on the streets where they try to find a way of supporting their families. In a recent case in Malawi, a man was convicted of trafficking another 52-year-old man

for purposes of slavery. The suspect, a 41-year-old from Mangochi district, was arrested in December 2012 after he offered to sell the victim for K2 million (about US$4,800). The buyer alerted members of community policing who arrested the offender. Various initiatives have been introduced by SADC member states, including drafting legislation to curb the vice. Eight of the 15 SADC member states have specific legislation that addresses the issue of human trafficking. These are Lesotho, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia. Mozambique has been one of the champions in this area, enacting a comprehensive law against human trafficking which prescribes penalties of 16 to 20 years imprisonment for those convicted. Five other countries have draft

laws at various stages of development Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, Seychelles and Zimbabwe. Together with Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo, these five currently use several pieces of legislation to address human trafficking. Despite these positive developments, the region still faces a myriad of challenges in this regard, including the evolving nature of tactics used by the traffickers. “Trafficking in human beings is a sophisticated crime that requires international law enforcement cooperation,” observed Kuda Seretse, Regional Specialized Officer at the Trafficking in Human Beings Desk in the regional bureau of the International Police Organization (Interpol) in Harare, Zimbabwe. “Solutions are not simple because of its unique ability to masquerade as anything but trafficking,”

Seretse said. Also daunting is the challenge posed by the absence of accurate statistics and documentation to provide a holistic picture of the extent of human trafficking in southern Africa. Most countries in the region have no reliable statistics in this regard and rely on “anecdotal evidence” from unofficial sources. The exact magnitude of the problem is often masked by other vices that are common in the region such as illegal migration. To address the issue of sparse and unreliable data, the SADC Secretariat is preparing to engage a consultant to undertake research on the extent of the problem. Representatives of SADC member states shared ideas and presented national action plans for the period 2014 2017 during the Johannesburg conference, the “SADC Regional Infor-

mation Exchange Conference on Trafficking in Persons”, under a regional programme supported by the European Union. The national action plans, which include measures to improve data collection and sharing, and greater cross-border cooperation, are to be incorporated into a regional five-year implementation plan to be developed by the SADC Secretariat. The five-year implementation matrix is expected to inform the 10Year SADC Strategic Plan of Action on Combating Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children. The regional strategic plan runs from 2009 to 2019. By Joseph Ngwawi sardc.net SANF is produced by the Southern African Research and Documentation Centre (SARDC), which has monitored

Strandliefhebber skryf: Was ek gister geskok? Ons eerste besoek aan die Mole in Swakopmund in 11 maande. Dit is VUIL. Alles is vertrap en die wêreld lê bestrooi van die rommel. Ek wonder wat dink die buitelanders wat hier besoek. Ek sit hierdie foto op, nie oor ek mense ‘target' nie en ook nie oor rasisme nie. Die foto is bloot oor die rommel.

Just wondering This morning I was driving behind a truck in the traffic circle. A roads authority vehicle passed us and I thought he was there to guide the truck which was loaded with bricks. To my amazement, the roads authority official flashed his blue lights to stop the truck in the circle. He stopped his vehicle in front of the truck and

shows the truck driver to stop. Maybe I'm BLONDE. But to my knowledge how do u stop a vehicle in a traffic circle when there are oncoming vehicles approaching? Should he have pulled off on the side of the road? Makes me wonder where the roads authority official got his licence from. Sylvana Langenhoven

Impressed by Service Dear Lady/Sir I have been visiting Swakopmund four to five times per year for the last 35 years. Approximately 8 years ago we bought a property and recently we decided to sell this property and purchase another property. We engaged several property agents and I would like to share with you the wonderful experience we had with Luna Properties. Luna Properties is certainly not the biggest property agents in Swakopmund but from day one we got personal attention from them. They proved to be highly professional and trustworthy. They were marketing our property during our absence and took special care that all our private belongings remained intact. Luna properties also attended to smaller repairs and maintenance issues and really walked the extra mile. Although the property is not sold yet Luna Properties and in particular Diana the agent we

worked with has left no stone untouched to try and sell the property. During the same time we started to look for a replacement property and we were delighted when Diana showed and sold to us the replacement property. The property was recently registered in our names and we are very happy with the transaction courtesy of Diana and Luna Properties. The fact that whenever we tried to contact Diana by telephone, email or SMS she was either available immediately or indicated when she can attend to the issue at hand was a further illustration of their trustworthiness. I can really recommend Diana and Luna Properties to your readers if they want to get involved in buying or selling a property they still offer services and values which you can rely on and trust. Best regards André van Niekerk

Out of the 34 054 candidates who wrote Grade 10 examinations, 18 613 learners (54.7 %) passed and will be promoted to Grade 11 after they achieved the required 23 points. According to Dr David Nawandi the 2013 exam results for all Grade 10 and Grade 12 Higher Level learners showed some improvement compared to last year's results. The promotional requirements for the learners who wrote their Grade 10 examinations are that they should maintain a minimum of 23 points along with a symbol above F in English, one of the mandatory promotional subjects. The worst performances were recorded in Accounting, Afrikaans First Language, German Foreign Language, Entrepreneurship and Integrated Performing Arts. Statistics show an increase of 2.6 percent from 2012, where 52.1 percent of pupils nationwide qualified for admission to Grade 11. Out of a total of 54 589 Grade 12 candidates, 11 728 learners sat for the Higher Level subjects in 2013. The results showed an improvement in aggregate percentage, with graded entries increasing from 95.4 percent in 2012 to 95.8 percent in 2013, which has allowed more students to qualify for university entrance requirements. Claire Campbell Every child is born with potential. How they utilize that potential is up 1) motivation, discipline and a strong supporting foundation from parents and 2) a good standard of education from teachers. We need to see more training in BOTH those areas. A child's upbringing is ALSO the community's responsibility, we can only apportion some of the blame to the Ministry of Education. Carl David Marx It's because there is no capital punishment in schools. All kids are being brought up like porcelain. Bring back capital punishment with Christianity in schools and you will see a huge improvement. Morne Visser Clearly our government schools are under performing, this is a serious concern for the future of Namibia as education is the key for a country going forward. More money need to be spent in education, and discipline is a main cause for poor results. There need to be respect for your school and teachers. Adam Jonathan Kaali These kids are failing too much. Why???? We parents must also start controlling those things. De-activate their accounts and all that. Like seriously. John Malcomx Rome was never built in one day, n so change is a gradually process.

BON international economic and financial development quarterly update Despite improved economic activities in some major economies during the third quarter of 2013, growth in the global economy remained weak. Improved economic activities were seen in the economies of the UK, US and Japan, which largely contributed to this nascent recovery. The Euro Area, despite some improvement, remained in a recession, during the third quarter. Growth in key emerging market economies such as China and India rose mainly due to government's spending and improved activities. Economic activity in Brazil and Russia were muted over the same period, while that of South Africa slowed as a result of the shrinkage in the manufacturing sector due to strikes in the automotive sector. Most central banks, especially, in the advanced economies maintained accommodative or eased their monetary police stances to support economic recovery. In line with some bright spots observed in the global economy, the domestic economy showed signs of improvement in various economic sectors during the third quarter of 2013. Available indicators showed improvements during the referred period, compared to the corresponding quarter in 2013. Within the primary industry, mineral production continued to show sustained momentum, while signification increases were observed in the value of livestock marketed, due to the prevailing drought. In the secondary industry, real value for building plans approved rose, suggesting increased property developments going forward, although real value of building completed declined. The construction sector to register a stronger growth in 2013, supported by private sector investment in the mining sector, as well as public sector investment for construction works. On the other hand, activities in the manufacturing sector slowed during the quarter under review, mainly due to decreased output of mineral processing. Tertiary industry performed positively as reflected in brisk growth of wholesale and retail trade sales, as well as in cargo volumes in the transport

sector, while activities in the tourism sector remained stagnant. Monetary and credit aggregates recorded strong growth at the end of the third quarter of 2013, in the line with the low interest rates environment and higher liquidity levels of the banking sector. Growth in broad money supply (M2) increased at the end of the third quarter of 2013, as a result of accelerated growth in domestic claims, but recorded a slowdown on a quarterly basis. Growth in private sector credit to 13.3 percent on account of weakened demand from the business and household sectors. Meanwhile, Namibia's headline inflation slowed to 5.8 percent during the third quarter of 2013, from 6.0 percent in the previous quarter. The slowdown was due to lower inflation for food and non-alcoholic beverages and housing, while inflation for transport, alcoholic beverages and tobacco rose. The central Government's outstanding nominal debt and loan guarantees increased on an annual bases at the end of the second quarter of 2013/14, but remained sustainable and within the target levels. The increase in total debt stock on an annual bases mirrored hikes in domestic and external debt levels, while the rise in loan guarantees was driven predominantly by domestic loan guarantees. Although total debt and loan guarantees recorded nominal increases, as a share of GDP, they remained well below the

Government's debt ceilings of 35.0 percent, posing limited risk to the fiscal sustain-ability. Namibia's external balance recorded a sizeable deficit mostly attributed to a widening current account deficit that was larger than the recorded surplus in the capital and financial account. The widening current account deficit resulted from the net payment in investment income, supported by a growing trade deficit in merchandise trade balance. The capital and financial account, however, registered a net inflow over the same period but it was not sufficient to offset the widening current account deficit. In line with increased imports and declined international reserves, the weeks of imports cover receded to 9.19 weeks from 14.35 weeks during the second quarter of 2013. The international reserves, however, remain sufficient to sustain the fixed currency peg. Namibia's external competitiveness continued improving during the third quarter of 2013, as a result of the depreciation of the REER. The depreciation of the REER could

potentially improve Namibia's external price competitiveness in international markets. In addition, the unit labour cost in the manufacturing sector slowed slightly to 162 index points during the quarter under review from 165 index points during the previous quarter, due to improved output and declined total wage bill. It is worth mentioning that, to date, the Rand's depreciation has not translated into an acceleration of Namibia's inflation. Headline inflation declined to 4.4 percent in November from 4.9 percent recorded in September 2013. The depreciation of the Rand and the decreased unit labour costs in the manufacturing sector could potentially improve Namibia's external price competitiveness in international market. The weak exchange rate would, however, continue increasing the country's import bill, especially for fuel and other capital goods. Going forward, the slight improvement in the economy during the third quarter of 2013 would augur well for Namibia's exports. Expansions in the US, UK and the Chinese economies could possibly sustain Namibia's export commodities such as diamonds, beef and other minerals to these markets, if the recovery continues. Furthermore, the Euro Area, a major destination for Namibia's exports also showed signs of improvement, although remaining in recession.

Permits needed to visit the Namib Naukluft A permit to enter the Namib Naukluft Park is compulsory and visitors and holidaymakers are reminded to stay on marked and designated roads in the park. It is also prohibited to harvest firewood in the park or to camp outside the designated areas demarcated for camping. A detailed map and information accompanies all permits. The Namib Naukluft Park is one of Namibia’s splendours. Permits can be purchased at the offices of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. Weekdays from 08:00 till 17:00 and Saturdays and Sundays from 08:00 till 13:00. For Namibians it is N$16 per person per day, for citizens of other SADC countries N$30 per person per day and nonSADC visitors N$40 per person per day. All vehicles are N$10 per vehicle per day. Covering nearly 5 million hectares, the Namib-Naukluft Park is the third largest game park in Africa. It is a spectacular mosaic of landscapes, ranging from the orange dunes of the dune sea and the vast gravel plains between the Swakop and Kuiseb rivers to the wetlands of Sandwich and the rugged mountains of the Naukluft massif. The Namib section of the park lies between the Swakop River in the north and the Kuiseb River in the south. Its stark and barren landscape is characterised by vast gravel plains, isolated inselbergs (island mountains), the spectacular Moon Landscape of the Swakop River Valley and the badlands of the Kuiseb Canyon. To date nearly 60 mammal species have been recorded in the area; the most commonly seen larger species are oryx, springbok and Hartmann’s mountain zebra. Mountain zebra occurs mainly in the eastern part of the park, especially in the vicinity of the Kuiseb and Swakop canyons. Oryx are fairly widely distributed after the summer rains, but during the dry season they concentrate in large numbers on the southeastern plains and in the Kuiseb River area. Springbok are also widely distributed.

Klipspringer occur in suitable rocky habitats, especially the rocky canyons in the upper reaches of the Swakop, Khan and Kuiseb rivers. The Kuiseb Canyon is also home to three troops of chacma baboon and the westernmost troop have been observed to go without water for up to two weeks. Among the predators the black-backed jackal is the most widely distributed. Leopard occurs in the Kuiseb and Swakop canyons and the mountain areas of the northeast. Spotted hyaena inhabit the eastern part of the park and along the coast brown hyaena patrol the beaches in search of food. The Namib section of the park has one of the highest densities of lappet-faced vulture in Africa. Among the other species to be seen are ostrich, Ludwig’s bustard, Rüppell’s korhaan, Namaqua sandgrouse, Stark’s lark, grey-backed finchlark and tractrac chat. The vegetation is sparse, except in the Kuiseb and Swakop rivers, where a variety of trees and shrubs grow. Among these the camelthorn, ana tree, ebony tree and real mustard tree are the most conspicuous. The gravel plains are often bare for years, except for camelthorn trees and shrubs growing in the shallow river washes. However, after good rains the plains are transformed into waving grasslands. Along the coast the vegetation is characterised by dwarf shrub-land, dominated by brakbos and inkbos. A rich diversity of lichens is also found here, but the most fascinating plant is without doubt the welwitschia.

In die finale episode van Donkerland gaan kyk ons weer waar hierdie storie begin het, wie betrokke was en wat hulle gedoen het om ons hier te kry. Johan en Mtonga moet beide verantwoording doen vir hul hardkoppige gedrag, wat die toekoms van Donkerland bedreig.

A black screen. The sound of a harsh cough. We are already alert when, soon after, we see a bartender pick up a customer's coin and then punch numbers into a cash register. Germs, we're thinking. "Contagion" is a realistic, unsensational film about a global epidemic. It's being marketed as a thriller, a frightening speculation about how a new airborne virus could enter the human species and spread relentlessly in very little time. 01:45 The Double 03:25 Hope Springs 13SL 05:00 MasterChef Australia WEDNESDAY 06:00 The Steve Harvey Show 07:00 The Talk S4 08:00 Beauty And The Beast 09:00 Super Fun Night S1 09:30 Barbie And Her Sisters In A Pony Tale 11:30 Two Broke Girls S3 12:00 The Talk S4 13:00 MasterChef Australia 14:00 Nashville S1

14 NAMIB TIMES

7 JANUARY 2014

Kennis oor visse se gewoontes kan van jou ‘n beter hengelaar maak

H

engel aan die Namibiese kus vanaf Sandvis hawe tot en met die Ugab mond kan vir elke hengelaar 'n groot plesier wees indien jy enkele geskrewe en ongeskrewe reëls volg: Gehoorsaam die reëls aangaande die hengel soos voorgeskryf deur die Ministerie van Seevisserye en Marine hulpbronne. Sorg dat jy te alle tye in besit van 'n geldige hengellisensie is, dit kan baie onaagenaamheid langs die kus vermy. Maak seker dat as jy die hoofpad verlaat en afdraai na die kus dat jy 'n spoor of paadjie van ander voertuie volg en nie blindelings oor alles ry nie. Ek weet nie hoekom ons altyd plek het om koeldrank, bier of aas saam te ry na die hengelwater nie, maar as ons terugkom het ons geen plek vir die leë houers nie. As jy tussen die hoogwater en laagwater merk ry, doen dit met inagneming van die hengelaars en mense wat ontspan langs die water. Dis nou genoeg gekla en voorgeskryf, kom ons kyk so 'n bietjie na die verskillende spesies vis wat hier by ons voorkom en die tipe aas wat ons kan gebruik om hulle te kul om ons hoeke te neem.

KOPERHAAI

Die mees gesogte sportvis om te vang aan die Namibiese kus, en hengelaars vanoor die hele wêreld kom na ons viswaters om hierdie knewel te probeer verower. Natuurlik geweldig sterk, en met tot 200kg plus aan die anderkant van jou lyn is dit 'n werklike toutrekkery en die fiksste en flinkste wen gewoonlik. Anders as wat die meeste mense glo word 'n bronshaai met doodgewone gerei vanaf die kant gevang en word slegs 'n stewige staalstrop met 9/0 tot 10/0 hoeke gebruik. 'n Makrielkop of self die kop van 'n galjoen of kabeljou is dodelike aas vir hierdie vleisvreter. Alhoewel die amptelike Namibiese rekord slegs op 172kg staan is daar al 'n paar knewels van oor die 200kg geland, met 'n bielie van 240kg wat op Langstand gevang is en dit nogal deur twee oorsese vroue hengelaars. Kom geredelik aan ons kus voor en is baie gewild by Langstrand, Myl 8, Myl 17, Myl 28, Popeye, Myl 68, Myl 100 en Winston. Staan ook bekend as “die arm man se marlyn” omdat dit net soveel aksie verskaf as 'n marlyn, maar heelwat goedkoper is om te vang. Hierdie haai kan vir jou tot 4 ure en langer besig hou, dus sê ek net stywe lyne.

GALJOEN

Dit is natuurlik die mees gesogste vis aan ons kus aangesien dit heerlik braai op die kole en ook gerook smaak dit vorentoe. Die vis kom voor waar daar heelwat bamboes of rotse is. Galjoen se geliefkoosde aas is swart en witmossel asook 'n stukkie rooiaas. Ons hoekgroote wissel hier vanaf 'n 2 tot 1/0 hoek. 'n Knewel van 3,5kg staan aangeteken in die Namibiese rekord anale. Ons kry ook die sand galjoene wat by Langstrand en Sandvis voorkom.

GESPIKKELDE SLOEPHAAI

'n Lekker bakleier wat vir sy grote jou die geveg van gevegte gee. Word aangekeer met 'n harderkop of selfs 'n stuk barber en gebruik ons 6/0 tot 7/0 hoeke met 'n stewige nylon strop van so 70kg aangesien die haai geen tande het nie. Soos sy naam aandui kom die haai graag tussen rotse by sloepe voor en is dus een wat die rotse gebruik om te skuil as jy hom gehaak het. Die Namibiese rekord is dan 'n allemintige 37kg, maar sloephaaie vanaf so 10 tot 25 kg is algemeen en word dan oral langs die kus gevang waar rotse voorkom. Hierdie haai is ook 'n fynproewer en is versot op 'n stuk kreef of tjokka (kalamari).

KOEIHAAI

KOLSTERT Hierdie is 'n baie onderskatte vis en kan vir groot hengelvermaak sorg en is selfs 'n lekker eetvis om te bak of braai. Kom oral langs die hele Namibiese kus voor en is die Namibiese rekord 'n allemintige 2,45kg. Hierdie vis het ook 'n klein bekkie en gebruik ons 'n 2 of 1 hoekie. Hierdie is nie 'n kieskeurige vis nie en sal aan alles byt, dog 'n pienk garnaal sal dit nie by verby swem nie.

STEENBRAS Wat 'n sterk vis om aan die lyn te kry, hy sal baklei totdat hy op die strand lê en dan nog steeds nie opgee nie. Hierdie is 'n sterk vis en durf ons dit normaalweg met 'n 2/0 tot 3/0 hoek aan wat gevul is met hetsy pelser, tjokka, mossel of kreef. Laasgenoemde natuurlik eerder 'n delikatesse wat die mens self wil nuttig. Die amptelike rekord staan hier op 17,3kg maar groter diklippe van tot 23kg is al aan wal gebring. Word baie in die omgewing van Walle, Myl 98, Canopy, Doep se Gat en Leiter gevang.

KABELJOU

'n Haai met 'n skrikwekkende stel tande wat ook nie sonder 'n staal strop en groot hoeke aangedurf word nie. Alhoewel die rekord op 87kg staan is dit 'n haai wat sommer in 10 tot 20 minute geland word en is nie 'n groot vegter nie. Hierdie haai verkies kouer water en kom oral aan ons kus voor en sal enige visaas vreet wat jy in die water gooi. Pasop egter vir die stel tande wanneer die haai geland is aangesien die haai die tip van sy eie stert met gemak kan raakbyt en is lief om hengelaars te probeer byt op die strand.

BABER

ELF

Beter bekend as “shad” en baiekeer verwar met 'n kabeljou deur die hengelaar, is hierdie vis 'n baie lekker eetvis wat aan ons kus gevang word. Die vis word meestal gevang wanneer die hengelaars gewoonweg hengel vir kabeljou of steenbra en die aas wat aangebied word vertoon lewendig genoeg dan vat die vis graag die lyn. As daar spesifiek gehengel word vir elf moet gebruik gemaak word van 'n stukkie staalstrop of klavier-draad en 'n 3/0 tot 4/0 hoek. 'n Kurk of “bung” word dan ook gebruik om vlottasie aan die aas te gee en dit meer lewendig te laat vertoon. Die amptelike rekord hier is 4,2kg.

Nou ja wat kan ek hiervan sê, net dat baie hengelaars die vis nie kan verdra nie en kwaad word as dit byt. Dit is egter vir baie hengelaars 'n delikatesse en is baie gesog wanneer dit gerook is. Hierdie vis is egter net so heerlik wanneer dit gefilliteer word en in 'n bietjie botter met sout en peper gebak word. Smaaklike ete. Word tot en met 1kg groot in ons waters en kom orals voor en vreet ook enige aas. Pasop vir daardie geniepsige pen bo-op en aan die kant van die kop, dit kan jou hengel uitstappie totaal bederf vir die dag.

LEERVIS

'n Minder bekende roofvis aan ons kus wat meer warm water verkies. Alhoewel dit resident is aan ons kus jag dit meer in die warm maande vanaf November tot April en is groot sport om aan te keer. Meestal word kunsaas gebruik waarvan “poppers” die gewildste is. Hier is die amptelike rekord slegs 12kg maar groter “leeries” van tot 24kg is reeds aan wal gebring.

ALGEMEEN Seker die mees gejagte vis aan ons Namibiese kus aangesien hierdie roofvis nie speel wanneer dit jou hoek gryp nie. Hy kan sommer korte mette maak met jou aas en is 'n kalant wat maar met 'n stewige hoek vanaf 'n 4/0 tot en met 'n 7/0 aangekeer moet word. Omdat hierdie vis so aggresief is, is dit gewoonlik maklik om die vis aan te keer aangesien hy homself gewoonlik vang. Hier is die amptelike rekord 25,9kg met 'n bevestigte 33kg wat op 'n skiboot gevang is. Daar is natuurlik fotos van groot vis met geskatte gewigte van tot en met 86kg, ek weet nou nie of dit voor of na die vloeibare versnaperinge was nie. Hierdie vis kom algemeen oral aan ons kus voor en word maklik gekul met 'n sardyn, tjokka of ansjovis. 'n Kombinasie van sardyn en tjokka is ook baie gewild. Indien seekat poot beskikbaar is, is dit ook 'n baie suksesvolle aas.

Hengel is soos jag en durf jy nie 'n olifant aan met 'n .22 kaliber nie, dus maak seker dat jy die regte gerei vir die regte doel aanskaf. Daarvoor is daar meestal kundiges by hengelwinkels en vra dus daarom raad. Verder sorg jy dat jy altyd die varsste moontlike aas bekom aangesien die resultate daarmee beter is. Hengel altyd met in agneming van jou mede hengelaars en die natuur.

Hewitt ends barren title stretch in Brisbane Lleyton Hewitt dashed Roger Federer's hopes of starting the year with a long-overdue title by beating the Swiss in the Brisbane International final on Sunday. Hewitt ended a more than threeyear title drought and ended a 15match losing run against Federer by defeated the 17-times grand slam champion, who won the last of his 77 titles in June with 6-1, 4-6 and 6-3. It appeared as if Federer (the world number six) who had led their rivalry by 18 against 8 wins before the final had turned the odds in his favour after he recovered from a slow start.

Federer had seven break points in the third set but failed to convert any of them. He hit 22 unforced errors in the first set, lost three service games and performed a complete air-shot off one attempted backhand service return. Hewitt did not lose a point on his first serve in the opening set and made just three unforced errors as he took command and secured his first ATP title in Australia since winning in Sydney in 2005.

Ghana beat Warriors Namibia and Uganda The Brave Warriors were dealt a 1-0 defeat by Ghana in an international friendly match played at Windhoek's Independence Stadium on Saturday.

The goal came after Namibia's goalkeeper Athiel Mbaha's failed to control a back pass. The Namibians enjoyed most of the possession and controlled the game but wasted numerous chances to score. Chris Katjiukua, Petrus Shitembi and Wi l l y S t e p h a n u s missed opportunities in the first half. Namibia also had Ghana on the back

foot for long spells in the second half but Sadney Urikhob, Denzil Haoseb, Da Costa Angula, Deon Hotto and Stephanus wasted opportunities in front of goal. Ghana used the match as a workout ahead of their assault on the African Nations Championships (CHAN) in South Africa later this month and assistant coach Maxwell Konadu complimented Namibia for the great facilities provided to them during their preparation for a match against Namibia's Brave Warriors.

Portuguese soccer great Eusebio dies Portuguese great Eusebio who is widely acknowledged as one of soccer's greatest ever strikers, has died aged 71, Portuguese media reported on Sunday. According to the Portuguese sports daily A'Bola, Eusebio had died of a cardiac arrest in the early hours of Sunday morning. The 'Black Panther', whose full name was Esuebio da Silva Ferreira was born in Mozambique but made his name as a fearsome striker for Portugal at the 1966 World Cup in England, where he top-scored with nine goals to help his team finish third. He won the European Cup with Benfica in 1962 and was named European Footballer of the Year in 1965.
