Marshallino Beukes ‘n Jong rekenmeester student aan die Instituut vir Bankiers in Namibië (IOB) in Windhoek het Saterdag die dood naelskraap vrygespring, nadat ‘n M-59-geweer granaat by ‘n woning in Swakopmund ontplof het.

Volgens me Drucilla Hoebes, moeder van Chantelle Gaoses (21), het haar dogter op die spesifieke dag by die Van Blerk woning in Monotokastraat 21, Ocean View, gaan help om die motorhuis skoon te maak, toe die ongeluk gebeur het. Chantelle, wat in baie pyn verkeer het, het kort na die voorval uit haar hospitaalbed aan die namib times vertel dat sy en haar ma se werkgewer, mnr Enwee van Blerk, items uit sy motorhuis gedra het, met die doel om dit op te ruim.

“Ek het ronde goed opgetel en na buite gedra, waarna ek aan mnr Van Blerk genoem het dat die goed ‘los’ voel. Hy het egter gesê dat dit veilig is. Die tweede voorwerp het geval en die volgende wat ek kan onthou, het ek op die grond gelê,” het Gaoses vertel. Hoof van die Swakopmund Buurtwag, mnr Mike Nederlof, het aan die koerant genoem dat hulle omstreeks 11:03 die noodoproep ontvang het en hulle en die G4S Sekuriteit maatskappy was van die eerstes op die toneel.

Die slagoffer, wat ernstige beserings aan haar bene, onderlyf en arms opgedoen het, sowel as mnr Van Blerk is deur Eagle Christian Ambulansdiens na die hospitaal gehaas. Van Blerk het slegs ligte skrape aan sy bors opgedoen. Die polisie, weermag en plofstofdeskundiges is ontbied en nadat die straat afgesper is, is die polisiemag se hondeafdeling ook ontbied om seker te maak dat daar nie nog lewende plofstof is nie. Niks is egter op die perseel gevind nie. Volgens aanduidings het

mnr Van Blerk ‘n paar maande gelede items van ‘n onbekende dame in Walvisbaai gekoop, waaronder ook leë kanon koeël doppe was. Hy gebruik dit blykbaar om ornamente soos asbakkies en wyn houers te maak. ‘n Merkbaar geskokte Van Blerk het aan polisie op die toneel genoem dat hy glad nie bewus was wat presies die inhoud van die kartonne was nie. Die verkoper se man, wat skynbaar oorlede is, was blykbaar ‘n versamelaar van hierdie items. Mnr Van Blerk het die

polisie na die woning in Walvisbaai geneem, maar geen ander plofstowwe is daar gevind nie. Van Blerk is op aanklag van besit van onwettige plofstowwe en die berging daarvan in hegtenis geneem.

President fires salvo at lazy Namibians and SOE bosses

President Hifikepunye Pohamba has expressed concern about the lack of commitment to work by some Namibian employees and said people should not blame the Chinese when they get the contracts. The President was speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony of the N$3 billion New Container Terminal for Namport in Walvis Bay on Friday. The remarks coming towards the end of his speech resembled the combatant he is as he fired verbal bullets to people who do not take assignments seriously. He said employees in Namibia have a tendency

to work looking at the clock all the time and packing bags 15 minutes before official knock off time. “...And then they will blame the Chinese and say the Chinese are “No Goodwo” because the Chinese work extra hours. If they do it why can’t we do it,” he asked, drawing roaring laughter from the hundreds of delegates who attended the

ceremony as he imitated the way Nigerians actors speak.. The ammunition spared Namport chief executive officer Bisey /Uirab and grazed non performing heads of State Owned Enterprises (SOEs). He said he was impressed with the manner /Uirab is steering the Namport boat but gave a stern warning to his counterparts running loss making parastatals and are perpetual beggars of supplementary funds form Government. ”I am talking about you seated in front who are now avoiding eye contact with me. Do the same as your colleague here. Some of you are not doing well. You are lucky I am going. If I was going to stay on you were not going to get it anymore. Instead of you making money, you are depending on the government budget. Time and again you go to Saara (Minister of Finance) asking for money. Stop them!” President Pohamba instructed his Minister of Finance, drawing another raucous applause from the audience. He said Government must consider devising a system of rewarding performing heads of parastatals so that least performing organisations heads will be paid

accordingly. The President however warned Mr Uirab not take comfort in the praises and relax adding that if he basks in the comfort of his appraisal, his next term of office will not be approved.

nurses, while the DRC clinic, which was built out of shipping containers, has two registered and one enrolled nurse. The minister said he expects to fill a number of vacancies once the Public Service Commission has approved the ministry’s plan. At the new DRC Clinic, there is a “mother-to-child container”, focusing on reproductive health, HIV counselling and -testing. Pregnant women in the DRC, who had to walk more than 5km to the Tamariskia Clinic, had often simply opted out of antenatal care. Speaking at the inauguration of Mondesa

clinic yesterday, Minister of Health and Social Services, Dr Richard Kamwi called on nurses and health workers to show discipline and care and to go the extra mile to help people in need. He urged them to focus on reducing mother and child mortality. “No death should occur in the course of giving birth”, he said, noting that the ministry’s slogan is, “No woman should die while giving life”. Irene Kapuka, a resi-dent of the area, who attended the ceremony on Monday, said: “The new clinic in Mondesa will make a big difference to us. Previously it was a real problem if somebody

gets sick at night and has to travel far, or cannot afford a taxi to go to the hospital. The new clinic is a major solution for us. Well done!” Magdalena Gowases of the DRC said having health services nearer their homes will help a great deal: “It used to take us so long to get to the clinic. It is really a good move.” She mentioned though that the health of the poorest people is also badly affected by the lack of water and food. Katrina Beukes of the DRC said that the DRC clinic is so far from their homes that it suits them better to walk to the new Mondesa clinic. 

MAJOR PROJECTS PLANNED IN ERONGO REGION • At Kuisebmond the ministry will build an accommodation block for health workers; • At Arandis the construction of the new clinic has been completed and will open in the course of this year; • At Utuseb the ministry will start to work on the foundation of the PHC Clinic; • At Usakos the government will construct a new hospital admin block; • At Walvis Bay renovations to the state hospital will be done and a new TB (tuberculosis) ward established. These plans are just not wishful thinking, Minister Kamwi pointed out, “It has all been budgeted for and approved!” he enthused, while the local residents applauded the minister’s efforts. Kamwi admitted though that the opening of clinics in Mondesa and the DRC is long overdue, but said the official opening of the three health facilities yesterday May represent an important milestone in the delivery of health services to the most disadvantaged. Before the establishment of the new facilities, Tamariskia Clinic was the only primary health care facility at the town. Minister Kamwi will also inaugurate a new state-of-the-art clinic in Usakos on Tuesday.

DRC requests to build dry port at Walvis Bay

It has emerged that the Namibian government is considering a request by the Democratic Republic of Congo to establish a dry port facility at Walvis Bay. Foreign Affairs Minister Netumbo NandiNdaitwah said on Monday during official talks with DRC foreign minister Raymond Tshibanda N'tungamulongo, that Namibia is prepared to assist landlocked SADC member states in gaining secure access routes to the sea for their imports and exports. The meeting in the DRC formed part of the Joint Permanent Commission between the two SADC member states. The ministers also agreed that there is a need for greater cooperation in the areas trade and investment, mining, fishing, military cooperation, agriculture and energy sectors. The joint commission will meet again in the DRC in 2015. Residents of Walvis Bay, living in the vicinity of the nearly complete Botswana Dry Port complained bitterly about the pollution and noise that affected them during the construction of the Botswana Dry Port culminating in a public meeting being arranged by the Municipality of Walvis Bay and stakeholders. It later emerged that despite nearing completion, the dry port cannot be put into use until a further environmental impact assessment (EIA) has been done and approved. It would appear that the concerns of local residents were not adequately addressed during the initial round of public consultations and the entire EIA will now have to be resubmitted by Botswana Rail, taking into account the concerns of the residents of the area.

At a public meeting in Walvis Bay last week people living near the new dry port complained of extensive dust pollution caused by ongoing construction in the area, but also raised concerns about noise levels, due to the expected increase in traffic in the area, specifically heavy duty trucks and containers moving in and out of the dry port. Some complained that the walls in their houses were cracking due to the impact of construction work in the area. Port Engineer Elzevir Gelderbloem said that in light of the residents' complaints, Namport would set up a soundproof fence around the perimeter of such construction, “However the fence would cost N$10 million and this is still under discussion with the Botswana government,” he explained. Namport also indicated that all traffic destined for the Botswana dry port will be directed through the port's main gate. The future use and viability of the dry port now awaits the review and approval of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. Selma Uushini of the Namibia Coast Conservation and Management project (NACOMA) reportedly told the meeting that, “Residents were (supposed) to be told how this operation would be carried out and how the project would affect them during all phases. There is legislation that allows for sustainable development where the interested and affected parties' concerns are addressed and their input. This should be followed by any developer.”

Ministry wants youth to be engaged Piquet Jacobs A public meeting organised by the Ministry of Youth, National Service, Sport and Culture, to instil a sense of self-esteem and aspiration amongst the youth, was held at the Namsov Hall in Kuisebmond. The meeting emphasised the need to inform and encourage young men and women in the Walvis Bay Rural and Urban Constituencies, to be active in tasks of national reconstruction. The official from the Youth Ministry, Aili Shigwedha, said there is a need to provide services to the youth that are in line with national policies. There is also a need to sensitise and mobilise the youth and provide them with opportunities that will develop relevant life skills that will able them to become responsible Regional Youth Officer, Aili Shigwedha

and self-reliant members of the community. The youth were told that the Youth Service is available for different training opportunities and the office should be used for guidance on how to get scholarships, how to write CV's and how to further studies. The youth is urged to remain focused on their future and careers. They were informed that it is equally important to know their rights and obligations in order to become productive members of society.

WARNING Thieves are targeting Narraville. According to the Unit Commander for Criminal Investigations Johan Henry Geiseb they gain access into homes via windows. They then force doors open and remove cellphones, laptops and flat screen television sets. These syndicates apparently operate and transport the valuables with the assistance of crooked taxi drivers. “We will arrest such drivers and confiscate their vehicles if they are found guilty of trans-

porting stolen items” said Geiseb. He appealed to drivers to rather report individuals who approach them to transport stolen property and called on community members to report any suspicious looking individuals they notice in the area by dailing 064 219071 or 081 262 9842. “Please be extra alert and take precautionary measures in order to safeguard your property and valuables” he concluded.

cocaine on him. He was arrested and spent the weekend in the holding cells. The accused appeared in court yesterday, and was granted N$2 000 bail. The case was postponed to June 19.

The Namibian police have appealed to 41 witnesses to come forward to testify when the fraud trial of seven prominent people connected to Avid Investment Corporation resumes in the High Court on 19 May. The long-running and unresolved case of the missing N$30 million came to prominence in August 2005 with the arrest and subsequent death of Avid Investment’s boss, Lazarus Kandara in front of the Windhoek police station. Shortly after his arrest on the evening of 24 August 2005 Kandara bled to death from single wound to the chest caused by a 9mm bullet fired from a Beretta pistol. He had been taken into custody some time around 18:00 at the High Court where he had been testifying on the second day of an inquiry into the affairs of the asset management company, Avid. The Social Security Commission (SSC) had turned to the High Court when it became apparent that Avid could not repay the SSC’s N$30 million investment by May 2005, as agreed in January that year. The inquiry, which was instituted under the Companies Act, drew widespread public interest on account of the fact that it involves high level public officials and large amounts of public funds. The case also revealed something of the inner workings of the system, of the clandestine activities of public figures, including a high-ranking military official, lawyer, company directors and a former minister. The political backdrop of the case, the names and the people involved provided much intrigue and the courtroom was packed day after day, as people eagerly sought to find out what happened to the money. STARTED BY KANDARA Avid was started by Kandara in mid-2004 and scored big on a questionable N$30 million investment from the SSC in January 2005. Officials at the SSC say they were pressurised and were apparently told by Swapo politician Ralph Blaauw that the orders to invest the money came from “a higher authority”. One of the SSC officials testified that he had been told the Swapo Youth League owns 80% of Avid and that the former President, Sam Nujoma is also a shareholder. The allegations could not yet be confirmed. According to the BBC, Mr Kandara admitted that payments had been made to Swapo Party members through Avid. He confessed to using his company to defraud the SSC and said he personally spent around US$46 000 during those four months. All indications were that he knew the game was up and he was about to tell it all. A few hours later, he was dead. Kandara had transferred around N$19.5 million to Namangol, owned by Kandara’s associate Nico Josea, who proceeded to spend around N$14.5 million on friends, family, and fellow church members over the next five months. He had initially transferred N$20 million to one Allan Rosenberg in South Africa, who later transferred N$15 million to Namangol. Josea apparently claimed his

spending spree was motivated by his religious beliefs, and promised that the investment would come to fruition in good time. That was nearly ten years ago and the SSC has since recovered very little of their N$30 million investment. SHOOTING OF KANDARA Following his testimony on 24 August 2005, Kandara was arrested that very same evening on charges of theft and fraud. He was then escorted home by three policemen to fetch his belongings and consult a lawyer. The police investigation into his death concluded that Kandara had got hold of a pistol at his house and shot himself. Then Police Inspector Hieronymus Goreseb told the press that on his return to the police station, where he was about to be remanded in custody, Kandara pulled out a gun from under a blanket and shot himself. Phil ya Nangoloh of the National Human Rights Society (NSHR), disputed this version: “It is very difficult to turn a pistol against yourself aiming at your heart surrounded by police”. “We suspect he was shot by the police,” he told AFP. The testimony of Namangol director Nico Josea, a witness with inside knowledge of the parties involved in the deal will be keenly watched. He reported that he received death threats in 2012. An SMS text to his mobile reads; “U are the next to die u wil pay the blood of Lazarus Kandara (sic).” Kandara facilitated the transfer of N$29.5 million of the SSC’s investment money to Namangol Investments, within 48 hours after the SSC had transferred N$30 million to Avid. N$20 million was sent to a South African bank account of one Alan Rosenberg and the rest paid out to a number of key players. POLITICAL INVOLVEMENT Former Deputy Minister of Works and Transport Paulus Kapia said he knew nothing of Kandara or Josea and Namangol before 10 July 2005, but was shown a newspaper report, indicating that prior to that date he was at a gala dinner, where Namangol Investments pledged N$310 000 to the Sam Nujoma Foundation. Kapia also at first denied that he knew of Kandara’s involvement in the company, but the veracity of his testimony was thrown into dispute when mobile phone records obtained by the prosecution showed that he had in fact been in contact with his co-accused, and had arranged at least one lunch meeting, before he was supposed to have met the players. In January 2005, before Avid got the funds from the SSC, Kapia, Blaauw and Kandara had met at a coffee shop in Windhoek, the court heard. If Kapia really did not know Kandara, although he was a director of Avid, then Kapia did not know who the de facto CEO of the company was, nor that Kandara had signing

powers to the bank account. There were also no records of board meetings that could be referred to. Apparently minutes were not kept by Avid’s directors. PERJURY Acting High Court Judge Raymond Heathcote said in 2008 that the inquiry had been diverted from tracing the missing N$30 million by witnesses who blatantly lied to the court. He recommended they be charged with perjury. Kapia resigned from his ministerial post shortly afterwards.

“Sluts” march against discrimination

Marshallino Beukes

Sexual violence is one of the biggest concerns in modern society and a group of Swakopmund residents staged a march on Saturday in this regard. The SlutWalk protest marches began on April 3, 2011 in Toronto, Canada, after a police officer stated to a crowd at York University that to avoid being made victims of sexual violence, “women should avoid dressing like Sluts”.

Slutwalk was born out of outrage, because victims have been told over and over again that if they are raped or sexually assaulted, it’s because of what they were wearing. The demonstrators said no one, regardless of age, sex, gender,

sexual orientation or sexual history, deserves to be assaulted. Placards stating, “Blame the rapist, not my boobs” and “Don’t tell me how to dress,” were displayed at the gathering point in front of the Magistrate’s court. Some of the participants

He added, “We urge newcomers in the fishing industry to forge partnerships with those who have the know-how and expertise.” The Ambassador of China, Xin ShunKang, was present at the event, and expressed his gratitude for the warm welcome he received from all Namibians and the delight at being part of the venture and the prospects of producing positive results.

WHY? The marine resources are limited and currently some of them are overfished or over collected. It is necessary that everybody uses them wisely and carefully to secure the future harvesting needs by protecting the stock. Quantity/number of marine resources harvestable, minimum size limits of fish and crayfish that can be caught, open season etc. help to manage stocks to avoid the total disappearance of some species in our waters. Do not leave bait or fish on the beach! Either take it home or return it to the sea. This food attracts scavengers like jackals and gulls that prey on other bio-diversity. When you are back home after the holiday, it also inflates the predator population. Where can you get a license for angling, crayfish diving & bait/mussels collection?

UNESCO for sustainable development A UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) Annual Camp under the theme “Driving education for sustainable development and focusing on the impact of climate change on sustainable living” was held from 27 April to 1 May, at the Gobabeb Research and Training Centre and Coastal High School in the Erongo Region. This annual camp of the UNESCO ASPnet Schools falls under the overall framework of UNESCO's work on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). As the designated lead agency for the implementation of the decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD), “UNESCO seeks to integrate the principles, values, and practices of sustainable development into all aspects of education and learning, in order to address the environmental, social, economic and cultural problems we face in the 21st century”, said Mr Samuel Diekert, Education Specialist from the UNESCO Windhoek National Office,

in his official opening remarks at the Gobabeb Research and Training Centre. A total of one hundred and forty-nine participants, consisting of learners, ASPnet coordinators and principals, from all over Namibia, were in attendance. The camp provided a platform for the each of the 20 participating schools to present research presentations, debate and discuss on various topics such as climate change and biodiversity, climate change and agriculture, youth participation in sustainable life-styles, promoting sustainable cultural practises, climate change and land man-agement and also sustainable water

management and water security. ASPnet was launched by UNESCO in 1953 with 33 secondary schools in 15 Member States to promote education for international understanding and peace. The program has emerged as one of UNESCO's most successful long-term initiatives. “ASPnet has become a unique network committed to reinforcing the humanistic, ethical, cultural and international dimensions of education whilst ensuring the sharing and exchange of good practises nationally and internationally”, stated Mr Diekert. In her welcoming remarks at Coastal

Participants of the UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network Annual Camp High School, Ms N Goagoses, Chief Regional Officer of the Erongo Regional Council, said she was overwhelmed to see that so many schools promote quality education and the four pillars of learning namely, learning to know, learning to do, learning to be and learning to live together. She complimented the learners for promoting the ideals of UNESCO

of peace, tolerance, mutual understanding and intellectual learning, to share research findings on the theme and learn about local places of cultural and historical significance. As the world's largest network of schools and teacher training institutes, the ASPnet serves as a laboratory for innovative pedagogical approaches, and strives to support teachers and learners in their efforts

to address today's changing educational needs and tomorrow's challenges. Dr Marius Kudumo, Secretary General of the Namibian National Commission for UNESCO said that the expected outcomes of the camp are to raise awareness among the participants on education for sustainable development and the impact of climate change on sustainable

Sam Khubis viering nie vergete Piquet Jacobs

Die Sam Khubis vieringe, op 7 en 8 Mei, is iets wat die Bastergemeenskap baie na aan die hart lê, hiermee herdenk hulle die gelofte aan God wat hul voorouers by Sam Khubis afgelê het. Met deesjaar se vieringe kant van die Duitsers in die daat ontsnap en die nuus op Walvisbaai was die tema “Keer terug na my”. Die verwelkoming is deur Annetjie Benz behartig en 'n oorsig van die gebeurtenis te Sam Khubis, is deur Pastoor Mark Beukes gelewer. Charleze Jochimsen het die betekenis van die Sam Khubis vlag as volg verduidelik, “die swart buiteraam beeld doodangs en vrees uit, die rooi binneraam beeld bloedverlies en gewondes uit, terwyl die wit middelpunt van die vlag eenheid in geloof uitbeeld.” Die unieke betekenis van die Sam Khubis vlam is deur Martha Van Neel verduidelik, “dit is 'n herinnering van eenheid en die dapper stryd vir oorlewing”. Gasspreker, Robert Kahimise, is die geleentheid gegun om sy toespraak te lewer waarin hy erken het dat hy nog nooit van Sam Khubis gehoor het, tot dat hy in Walvisbaai gekom het nie. “Dit is vir my kenmerkend vir 'n volk om so saam te staan”. Daarna is die oorhandiging van die vlam gedoen, met 'n slot gebed. Charleze Jochimsen het die aand van die byeenkoms, 8 Mei, haar 19de verjaarsdag gevier. Elke jaar sedert 1977, het die Rehoboth Basters 'n byeenkoms by Sam Khubis, sowat 80 km suidwes van Rehoboth, vir 'n tweedag fees ter herdenking van die "volk" se nabyuitwissing aan die hande van die Duitse koloniale magte. Hierdie jaar is die 99ste herdenking van die geveg en dit was ook die derde keer dat die geleentheid in Walvisbaai gevier is. Gedurende hierdie twee dae trek die gemeenskap op na Sam Khubis, om hul gelofte gestand te doen en ook hierdie belangrike dag in hul geskiedenis te herdenk en te onthou. Die geskiedenis van Sam Khubis begin in 1884 toe Duitsland 'n protektoraat oor Namibië, toe SuidwesAfrika, verklaar het. Die Bastergemeenskap het onmiddellik probeer om Duitse beskerming te verkry, om sodoende hul voortbestaan op Rehoboth te beveilig. In 1885 is 'n beskermingsen vriendskapsverdrag met Duitsland aangegaan. Hierdie verdrag het daartoe bygedra dat wet en orde vir 30 jaar lank in dié deel van Namibië gehandhaaf kon word. Dinge het wel in 1914 drasties verander. Met die uitbreek van die Eerste Wêreldoorlog in 1914, is 'n Basterkorps van ongeveer 176 mans ingestel, onder bevel van die Duitse koloniale owerhede in die land, met die uitdruklike verstandhouding dat geen Baster gebruik sou word om teen die Duitse vyande te veg nie. 'n Aantal gebeure roer toe vermoede aan die kant van die Basters dat die Duitsers probeer om die Basters te laat veg aan die

vorming van strydende faksies: die lede van die korps is voorsien met wapens en uniforms, wat die Basters geweier het om te dra. Sommige lede van die korps is gestuur na Kraaipoort en Nauchas, en ander is verder na die weste te Jakkalswater en Ururas, langs die Walvisbaai grens gestuur. Kaptein Cornelius van Wyk, die broer van Hermanus, het by 'n vergadering op Swakopmund aan generaal Louis Botha verduidelik dat die Basterkorps deur die Duitsers gedwing word om aan hul kant te veg. In Februarie 1914 was 46 lede van die korps aangesê om op Uitdraai, meer as 120 gevangenes van die oorlog te beskerm onder die bevel van Duitse offisiere. Weer in April van daardie jaar is die Baster Raad gevra om lede van die korps te stuur na Otjiwarongo, om 'n ander groep van die gevangenes op te pas. Dit het na bewering groot protes veroorsaak onder Basters wat 'n ontmoeting met 'n kolonel Francke by die stasie op Bahnhof gehad het. Die kolonel se reaksie was vinnig en bondig: óf die Basters gaan na die noorde, waarna hulle gestuur is, óf die hele Baster volk word ontwapen. Die Basters was drie dae grasie gegee om 'n besluit te neem. Hulle besluit was dat niemand noorde toe sal gaan nie en dat hulle ook nie ontwapen sal word nie. Later in April 1914, het die manne op Uitdraai hul poste verlaat en hierdie nuus is onmiddellik getelegrafeer aan die Baster Raad. Van daardie punt af het dinge vinnig en onherroeplik ontrafel. Die Baster soldate in die sorg van die Duitsers se perde was in die geheim ontwapen. Een van hierdie soldate het probeer ontsnap en hy is dadelik geskiet. Die skietery eggo deur die rustige dorp en veroorsaak 'n uitbarsting van vrees en paniek. Dieselfde nag was Baster soldate by Sandputs ontwapen. Een het probeer vlug en is doodgeskiet. Die volgende oggend het 'n sol-

aan die Baster Raad oorgedra. Konsternasie breek toe los. Mense vlug uit die dorp toe Duitse troepe die dorp binnemarsjeer. Teen die middag het gewapende Baster mans laers gevorm op die westelike en suidelike grense van Rehoboth. Ontwapende mans, vroue en kinders het hulle gehaas na Sam Khubis, in 'n poging om voluit oorlog teen die faksies te voorkom. Die Baster Raad is na Windhoek om met die goewerneur te ontmoet, maar geen ooreenkoms kon bereik word nie. Pieter Mouton maak alle weerbare mans op Schlip bymekaar om na Sam Khubis op te ruk 'n Duitse sersant weier 'n bevel van Basters om te stop by die Schlip polisiekantoor en is gewond en ontwapen. Die strydlyne is stewig gevestig in die sand wat 'n aantal kleiner skermutselings verreken voor die slag van Sam Khubis. Op 22 April 1915 is 'n groep vroue, kinders en mans aangeval deur die Duitse soldate by Heuras. Een man en 'n jong meisie is doodgeskiet terwyl twee mans gewond is. Vroue en kinders het in alle rigtings na die berge gehardloop. Alle osse voor die waens is doodgeskiet en die waens is verbrand. Daar was swaar verliese gely in vee- en ander ware. Na 'n paar dae bereik die vlugtende groep Sam Khubis. Die Beskermingsen Verdedigingsverdrag is toe nietig verklaar. Toe Kaptein Cornelius van Wyk die dreigende gevaar vir sy familie besef, het hy hulle gestuur om skuiling te vind in die berge nie ver van sy plaas af nie. Saam met hulle was die families van Frederik en Stoffel van Wyk. Op 4 Mei 1915 het 'n paar Duitse soldate hierdie skuilplek ontdek. Op 'n koelbloedige wyse is daar op hierdie weerlose vroue en kinders geskiet. Die eggenote van die Kaptein, Katrina, het as ooggetuie onder eed oor hierdie skietery getuig dat, ten spyte van pleidooie om genade, die 70-jaar oue eggenote van Stoffel van Wyk, deur die bors geskiet

Basters by die Sam Khubis vieringe in Walvisbaai is. Daarna is 'n deel van die kopbeen van Frederick van Wyk se vierjarige seuntjie weggeskiet, terwyl die elfjarige seuntjie van Stoffel van Wyk in die kop gewond is (hy het later herstel). Johannes (12), die seun van die Kaptein is doodgeskiet, asook sy dogter Anna (23) wat probeer ontsnap het. Daarna is die res aangeja, terwyl die Kaptein se seun Hermanus (18) agter gehou is. Later is 'n skoot agter die rotse gehoor. Hierdie vroue en kinders is met 'n wa na Leutweinstasie naby Windhoek vervoer en daar gelos. Hulle het later te voet teruggekeer na Garies. Eers op 9 Mei 1915 het Katrina by haar eggenoot, die kaptein op Sam Khubis aangesluit. Hulle het teruggekeer na Garies om te gaan vasstel wat van hul seun Hermanus, geword het. Sy lyk is geblinddoek, op sy rug aangetref met vier koeëldoppies langs hom. Alle oorblywende waens sowel as die vroue en kinders het uiteindelik Sam Khubis bereik. Daar was ongeveer 300 Baster mans rondom die Sam Khubis berge gestasioneer, terwyl vroue en kinders binne die sirkel was. Teen 8 Mei 1915 is die Duitse mag geskat op ongeveer 300 tot 400 man. Hulle het twee kanonne en drie Maxim masjiengewere gehad. Die Duitsers op 8 Mei 1915, omtrent dagbreek

aangeval. Die geveg het die hele dag geduur. Teen die aand het die Basters tot die wrede ontnugtering gekom dat hul ammunisie uitgeput was. Totale uitwissing was in sig. Met 'n vaste vertroue in God was daar in ernstige benoudheid gebid. 'n Gelofte is daardie nag afgelê: God van onse Vaders, sterk en magtige GOD Heilig is u naam op die ganse aarde U, wat die hemel en aarde geskape het Neig u oor tot ons Luister na die smekinge van u kinders Die dood staar ons in die oë Die kinders van die bose soek ons lewens Red ons uit die hand van onse vyand En beskerm onse vroue en kinders (en nou die Gelofte): En dit sal vir ons en onse nageslag wees, Soos 'n Sondag, waarop ons U naam sal prys, En U goedertierenheid Tot in ewigheid Nooit sal vergeet nie AMEN

Kort hierna is die smeekgebed verhoor. Wonder bo wonder het die Duitsers na hierdie gebed/gelofte, teruggetrek. Na die geveg is vasgestel dat nege Basters doodgeskiet was en vier-entwintig gewond was. Binne 'n laer was twee meisies en een kind gewond. Daardie nag het die Duitsers teruggekeer tot waar hul kanonne gestaan het en daar het hulle gebly tot die volgende oggend. Die oggend van 9 Mei 1915 het hulle nog 'n paar kanonskote op die Basters gevuur. Terwyl dit aan die gang was, het hulle sommige van hul dooies begrawe. Daarna het hulle in die rigting van Rehoboth weggetrek. Verskeie Duitse soldate, vrouens en kinders wat gevange geneem is, is goed behandel en later teruggestuur na Rehoboth. Dit is egter moeilik om te sê wat die verliese van die Duitsers was. Twee bokwaens wat weggery het met dooies en gewondes is egter gesien. By verre in die minderheid en sonder ammunisie, glo

die Basters dat hulle die Schutztruppe se aanvalle op 7 en 8 Mei 1915 oorleef het te danke aan Goddelike ingryping. Benewens die politieke gevolge van hierdie botsing lê die geestelike betekenis van die herdenking van hierdie gebeure opgesluit in die geloofskrag van die Christen, vertroue in God en 'n wegwyser vir die nageslag wat om te doen in tye van benoudheid, doodsangs en twyfel in voortbestaan wanneer "de kinderen der bose zoeken onze levens." Hier hoef dus nie altyd die vyand van Sam Khubis bedoel te word nie. "Wanner ons twyfel oor waarheen ons oppad is, is dit altyd raadsaam om terug te kyk en vas te stel waarvandaan ons gekom het" Ten slotte word vertrou dat hierdie voorbeeld van die reddingswerk van die Allerhoogste nie net vir elke gelowige nie, maar in besonder vir die nageslag van hierdie voorouers, 'n geestelike versterking sal bly op aarde.

WALVIS BAY

Jazzy VIBES Percival & Pedro Rinquest

Otis Finck

The Walvis Bay Library presented a Jazz evening on Thursday, in celebration of the Jazz Appreciation month.

The recognition of Jazz is observed throughout the world in April and the well-organised event lived up to expectations. Disc Jockeys Dean Jansen and Derick Rooza set the mood and took those in attendance on a jazzy musical journey with some familiar and remixed songs. Percival and Pedro Rinquest and George Pickering entertained jazz fans with live performances. Rooza lamented the absence of Jazz related events and music in the town and kicked off the evening by playing some classic Jazz from a vinyl LP produced in 1958 by the Heath Brothers with Milt Jackson on xylophone. Dean enticed the crowd with a combination of modern and funky jazz by artists such as Bob James, George Benson, Dr Victor and Ray Barito, to mention a few. He pointed out that he comes from an

era of LP’s and that the sound was of a superior quality when compared to today’s digitally mastered and produced music. “Back

said. The Rinquest brothers performed two songs from Sade (By your side and Baby Father) and rounded off their

with his rendition of REO Speed Wagon’s I want to know what Love is and Let it Be by the Beatles. He rounded off his

performance with an own composition. Percival is an established musician, songwriter and producer. He is a member of the Windhoek based Chilling in the Park band and is currently working on his own album. Pickering had the crowd singing along

Cheryl Fortuin, the Head of Walvis Bay Library Services

performance with one of his own compositions that will be included on his, soon to be released 11 track album, in September. Rooza invited interested persons who would like to be part of a Jazz Blues band to contact the Library. He plans to approach the Library

DJ Dean and Derick

to avail the hall where the event was staged as venue for practise sessions and more performances. According to the Head of Walvis Bay Library Services, Cheryl Fortuin and Library Assistants, Aneke Blizard and Talana De Jong the event was organised to create awareness and to introduce Jazz amongst the youth and with the aim to provide exposure to local musicians. “We want to provide some healthy and quality entertainment for grown-ups. We are looking forward to make it a regular item on the coastal entertainment calendar,” said Fortuin. She invited established groups or artists to come up with proposals to utilise the venue at the Library for cultural shows and events. This was the second Jazz event organised by the Walvis Bay Library. Artist from Swakopmund performed at the first event organised in 2013.

CMA CGM - the "ER CANADA", a container cargo vessel which is hailed as one of the biggest to call at the port of Walvis Bay, docked here on Friday. Otis Finck

She has a capacity of 5 700 TEU with a maximum stowage capacity of 6 000 TEU. She is 277m long and has a deadweight of 68 025 tons. She is the biggest container vessel in history which has called on Walvis Bay and the West African coast and operates on the NEW ASAF service together with other 11 sister vessels of the 6 000 TEU-class. The arrival of the vessel ensured that the CMA CGM Group, the world’s third largest container shipping company which links Namibia with all continents of the world, officially became the first carrier to avail a direct service vessel with such enormous container capacity to the country. The leading maritime transport company in Africa rolled out the red carpet and treated its clients to a cocktail event and a tour of the massive vessel on Friday evening. “It is a momentous day for us at CMA CGM Namibia. We are making history with the first call of the ER CANADA to Walvis Bay. Our company is bringing these big vessels to Walvis Bay for two reasons: Firstly, in order to be more cost efficient since bigger vessels are more cost efficient and secondly, to be able to bring more volumes to Walvis Bay. We will also be able to load more local IMPORT and EXPORT cargo. Together with Namport, CMA CGM Namibia is committed to provide the industry with the fastest and most economical services in order to compete on a global scale. Further, in order to assist Namport and Walvis Bay to become a logistical hub for the SADC region, you need dedicated services which operate with large vessels linking all continents together. Our job as a Shipping Line is to service our clients to get their cargo to be shipped to anywhere in the world in the most economical way” said Florian Nittscher, Managing Director of CMA CGM Namibia. In Africa CMA CGM has currently 72 offices in 43 countries, 25 maritime services, 1 300 employees, the CMA CGM Group has transported over 1  200  000 TEU (twenty foot equivalent unit) in 2013 from/to Africa. Already well-established in Africa, the Group aims at reinforcing its maritime

Florian Nittscher, Managing Director of CMA CGM Namibia services with the opening of new trades and calls, developing the creation and modernisation of its ports infrastructures, extending its solutions for intermodal transport so as to deliver cargo inland and creating new logistic platforms offering a wide range of additional services to its customers. The Omanda and Omkashi tugboats were used to guide the vessel through the canal up to the dock. Four Liebherr cranes were utilised to offload more than 500 containers and to load around hundred containers nonstop and throughout the night while the vessel remained docked. The ER CANADA sails under the flag of Liberia and left the port of Singapore on 19 April for Walvis Bay after it sailed from the port of Shekou in China. The vessel was built in 2001. It has a Gross Tonnage of 65 792 tons with a width of 40m. The vessel has nine decks, is equipped with an elevator and is manned by 30 crew members.

Catching up with the Anri Jacobs Last City

This week it was time to catch up with two amazing people, Lizbet and Adam, together known as “The Last City.” For those of you who do not know them, this is who they are, “We are two people living, working, and married in Hiroshima, Japan. We teach English and play music on the side with the goal of switching those around one day. We play a type of music that we've dubbed “classical pop” although we really have no idea how to define it most days. We want to break down the walls between the creative and the ordinary and show that they don't have to be mutually exclusive.” Lizbet was born in the beautiful town of Swakopmund but was raised in South Carolina and Adam was born and grew up in the same city. From the moment the two met the magic has been unstoppable. This power duo does not only make music together but enjoy a happy marriage. Their most recent performance was at one of the “foreigner havens” in Hiroshima, an American style bar called Kemby's that was hosting a fundraiser for disadvantaged Thai children. Lizbet further said, “This year we've been building our internet presence through YouTube and blogging, writing and making videos about anything that we find interesting and hope that other people will find interesting, too. We've been promoting our latest music baby, a CD called “Willfully Human,” and we've been finding as many opportunities as possible to play music.” At the moment Lizbet and Adam are teaching so that they can pay for their music projects

and graduate studies. Lizbet continued, “We are studying Japanese and mixing with friends when we aren't playing or working in a desperate effort to be bilingual. We are busy but usually in a good way,” Lizbet said. When asked the big question about where they want to be in future she said, “Probably in the US or back in Japan doing something with music and ministry. We are very passionate about helping victims of human trafficking and we are in a part of the world where it is all too common. We have no idea what these desires and dreams will actually look like, but we are excited to see.” Lizbet further added that they recently put out a six song Willfully Human EP, but have already started writing

and recording new songs. They duo will be releasing singles during the course of the year and hope that by the end of the year they will be able to release an album. “We want to make music that is meaningful, that is creative, that is innovative, and that touches others in the same way that it touches us. We perform a mixture of covers and originals but the songs on our CDs are either completely ours or written in collaboration with friends.” The duo shared their journey, “Adam has been singing since he was young. He grew up in a house that constantly had music playing or being sung, and he carried that with him.” Lizbet played violin and piano from a young age, and began to branch out in the types of music she played as she got older. The couple started playing in a band and performed together. Asked to comment on the message they try to send to listeners, they said, “There is a certain depth that seems to be lacking in popular music today. We want to rediscover that. We want people to realise that creativity is not limited to a couple of hours a day or to one activity. It can be found everywhere, in the small turn of phrase, in the blending of different art forms, or in ways in which we work.” “Be sure to check out our social media outlets for updates and to see our latest creative projects!

World Dressage Challenge

The Walvis Bay Equestrian Centre hosted a prestigious FEI World Dressage Challenge this year. This international competition took place last week Thursday.

The aim of the event is to give the less experienced Dressage riders who, under normal circumstances, cannot take part in international Dressage competitions the opportunity to compete internationally without having to leave their own country. The Competition is divided into 11 geographical zones, made up of between four and six countries. Namibia is part of Zone 11, together with Swaziland, Mauritius and Botswana. It offers five performance levels and two age groups (12-15 yrs, 16 yrs and older): Prix St.Georges, Advanced, Medium, Elementary and Preliminary. The riders of the FEI World Dressage Challenge are judged on the same tests and by the same Ground Jury within each geographical Zone. The FEI World Dressage Challenge also serves as an educational purpose by linking the competition with the coaching. The Dressage tests are in correlation with the Levels 1, 2 (and soon Level 3) of the FEI Coach Education System, which is implemented in the same NFs that participate to the FEI World Dressage Challenge. In addition to the competition itself, the Ground Jury also offers to competitors practical and theoretical instructions during a training course following the event. In the past the judges came from Argentina, France and Russia, and

this year we were very excited to welcome Mrs Tiina Karkkolainen from Finland and Mrs Mary Robins from New Zealand. They were very impressed with the organisation and the level of the participants. It was a real honour for our riders to have lessons with these experienced Judges after the competition. The standard of the different levels was very good and the results fairly close. The event was well organised by the Walvis Bay Equestrian Centre, who need to be commended on their hard work and excellent team spirit. Gratitude goes out to all the sponsors who made the event possible. The Individual results - Preliminary Class Juniors: 1. Elizabeth Rossouw on Okakambe Fury, 2. Nadine Flemming on Ginger and 3. Karin Schommarz on Jason. Preliminary Class Seniors: 1. GesaFlemming on Seeis Shelton, 2. Sumari Piepmeyer on FCS Precious Gift and 3. Salom Nghinamito on Bastos Bodenhausen In Kognito.

Botswana and 4. Mauritius.

Albei Kudus spanne het met volpunte weggestap na twee klipharde wedstryde teen Dolphins van Swakopmund verlede week Saterdag.

In albei wedstryde moes Kudus tot diep in die tweede helfte diep delf om die oorwinnings te verseker. Kudus 2 het sy eweknie met 27 7 geklop danksy drieë deur Waylon Strauss, Marvin Bruwer, Charlton Stevens en Floyd Freygang. Calla het twee van die drieë verdoel terwyl Herkie 'n strafskop deur die pale gejaag het om Kudus se punte op 27 te staan te bring. Soos verwag was die kragmeting tussen die

twee eerste spanne 'n klipharde wedstryd met albei spanne wat aan die wenkant wou eindig. Kudus het die wedstryd teen 'n vinnige tempo begin en 'n strafskop deur Shalako Groenewaldt en 'n drie deur Daniel Bok het die tuisspan vroeg met 10-0 laat voorloop. 'n Vasberade Dolphin span het egter desperaat terug baklei en toe die fluitjie vir rustyd blaas was die telling gelykop met 10 punte elk. Kudus 1 het egter in die tweede helfte stadig maar seker

die oorhand begin kry en drie verdere drieë deur Cassio Schoombe (2) en Ernesto Bampton het aan Kudus 'n welverdiende oorwinning besorg. Shalako het 2 van die doelskoppe verdoel terwyl hy ook een strafskop bygevoeg het wat die eindtelling op 32-13 in Kudus se guns besorg het. Kudus is dus oor die eerste hekkie om steeds die nommer een span langs die kus te bly. Eerskomende Saterdag kom hul egter voor hul grootste toets te staan

waneer hulle vir Walvisbaai op die Jan Wilken Stadion aandurf. Walvisbaai se eerste en tweede spanne is twee weke gelede deur Wanderers met 88- 0 en 73- 20 onderskeidelik vermorsel en sal definitief hul naam in ere wil herstel. Alle Kudu spelers word versoek om die week se oefeninge by te woon. Spelers wat werk of beseer is moet vir Fanco of Block kontak.

THE NAMIBIAN TEAM: Gesa Flemming on Seeis Shelton, Nadine Flemming on Ginger, Sumari Piepmeyer on Precious Gift, Holger Kleyenstüber on Rathmore Sapphire. Standing with the Namibian Flag is NAMEF representative Gigi Mathias and between the horses are the international FEI judges Tiina Karkkolainen and Mary Robins.
