Mayor on traditional & cultural values

The Municipality of Henties Bay may lose a N$5 billion shrimp and prawn aquaculture project if a land ownership wrangle continues, Oshana Aqua Shrimp and Prawn Hatchery (Pty) Ltd director and chairperson, Sackey Natangwe Aipinge on Tuesday, told delegates attending an Aquaculture and Marine Development Summit, organised by the Henties Bay Municipality. day the newspaper was not able to get comments from the implicated land owners. The company has already invested in a pre-feasibility study and EIA assessment to the tune of USD 60 000 (N$ 625 000). The one year pilot project will create jobs for 10 people. The full project will employ 30 direct jobs and 200 seasonal jobs. Total employment opportunities will be 480. The project will also train locals to ensure that skills are main-

tained and distributed. Projected yearly revenue from shrimps on a 30 hectare farm is around N$2 billion. Changing dietary habits globally are

creating a growing demand for seafood, particularly from the health conscious consumers of industrialised nations.

Bay Municipality all claim to be the owners of the piece of land. The finalisation of the EIA is being delayed by the land wrangle. “It has been a year now and each day we are incurring costs and counting our losses as a result of the haggling and bureaucracy. If it does not happen (allocation of land), we will take the project to Walvis Bay or approach the Regional Council and do the project in Swakopmund,” Aipinge said. Due to the public holi-

He said the implementation process was stalled when the company contracted to do the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Study, Tortoise Enviro Consultants cc held a Public Participation meeting early this year. Aipinge said the allocated piece of land at Jakkalzputs is government land that the Henties Bay Municipality allocated to the company for the project but the University of Namibia, Ministry of Environment, Namibia Wildlife Resorts and Henties

jected once again. The reason for refusing him bail was summed up as a “premature decision” by Magistrate Matulich. In most cases the granting of bail is a common occurrence and is granted on condition that the suspect will return to court until the pending criminal matter is finalised. But in some instances, such as Noble’s case, the State opposed the granting of bail as it is in public interest. Noble is a habitual drugs criminal with 18 previous convictions. Noble’s lawyer, Mr Jan Wessels, feels that the state has a weak case against his client.

Henties Bay focuses on acquaculture Dorcas Mhungu

The Municipality of Henties Bay held a two day Aquaculture and Marine Development Summit that drew more than 100 participants. Addressing delegates at the opening ceremony, deputy minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources, Dr Samuel Ankama said Namibia’s efforts to attract investors in mari-culture are retarded by lack of onshore land for aquaculture establishment. He warned executives who deliberately delay development projects because they want a stake in the projects. “Such individuals are cancerous to the system and must be rooted out as they are retarding development. It is our shared

responsibility that as citizens of this beautiful country we devise positive mechanisms and attitudes that will enable aquaculture development without delays,” the minister warned. Dr Ankama urged financial institutions like the Development Bank of Namibia, Agribank and commercial banks to avail funds for the establishment of aquaculture projects. A study conducted by the Norwegian Government indicates that for a small size commercial fish farm to begin operating, a minimum

investment of N$15 million or more is needed. He added that Namibia has several advantages that offer a solid foundation for the establishment of successful projects. The Policy and legal framework are already in place for the development of a responsible aquaculture sector, the 1500 km largely uninhabited coastline, excellent security along long stretches of the coast, high primary productivity of marine water, and the already well-established processing, packaging and marketing systems.

“With these advantages there is a wide range of potentially important forms of aquaculture which could benefit Namibians. These include the possibility of very large scale further development of the existing operations in farming marine shellfish, and new developments that include farming with species such as kabeljou, tuna and sea-cucumber,” minister Ankama said. Namibia envisages that by the year 2030 aquaculture will have grown to become a thriving industry. Dr Ankama

said the Government of Namibia has identified aquaculture as one of its top priority areas for development. Commercial Marine acquaculture is presently dominated by oyster production carried out in Walvis Bay, Swakopmund, Lüderitz and Oranjemund. Challenges dogging aquaculture at the moment are availability of suitable land, pollution from ports or ships, hydrogen sulphide eruptions and access to finance. “Our Government strongly supports aquaculture development

Deputy Minister Ankama through the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources. In addition the National Standards Institute has joined forces in the creation of the necessary legislative and research environment for Aquaculture to de-

velop in Namibia. The progress being made in the commercial Mari-culture sector is testament to that, especially with respect to oyster and abalone production,” the minister said.

A decade later, NamWater still mulls desalination plant Jade McClune

Desalinated water is the only viable option for coastal industries and communities, NamWater says.

Speaking to delegates at the Chamber of Mines conference in Windhoek last week a senior manager in Namwater’s water supply division for the south of the country, Coenie Koegelenberg, said from the standpoint of the national water distributor, it would be best that all mines are supplied fully with desalinated water. Koegelenberg reiterated Namwater’s long-standing promise that “towns are to be phased in when groundwater sources (have been) fully utilised”, without specifying when exactly, or what is meant by “fully utilised”. Namwater has over the past decade made repeated promises in this respect and justified above-aver-

age tariff increases over the past decade on the grounds that it would build a desalination plant. Naturally there has been an expectation among residents that the benefits of desalinated water would one day trickle down to the household consumer, but that has not happened yet. Namwater announced again last year, when it became clear that the corporation was extracting more water from the Omaruru delta (Omdel) than the aquifers could sustain, that they had decided to go back to the drawing board to look into the desalination option. High-level managers at Namwater make no secret

of the fact that the Omdel has become relatively depleted in recent years, partly due to conditions of drought, but also due to the high rate of abstraction by NamWater, most of which is channelled to uranium mines in the region. It has been pointed out that the depletion of the underground water sources places at risk the long-term sustainability of coastal industries and communities that depend on the delta for fresh water supplies. The risk of contamination by seawater is also very real and experts have warned against lowering the water table in the delta to the extent that salt water rushes in and destroys

the underground freshwater reservoirs. As recently as November it was reported that desalinated water would be pumped into the delta to replenish it, but it is not clear whether this was implemented. There is widespread concern that the quality of household water has steadily deteriorated in recent years at Swakopmund, but as yet there is no clarity on this important question. Residents at Swakopmund have also repeatedly asked when the desalinated water will reach their homes. AREVA Namibia, which operates the desalination plant near Wlotzkasbaken has an agreement to sup-

ply Rössing and Husab mines with several million cubic metres of water per year, but when asked directly last week when residents at the coast will be able to access desalinated water for household use, CEO Hilifa Mbako was not forthcoming. Namwater’s Koegelenberg confirmed though at the same event, that NamWater and the Ministry of Agriculture, Water & Forestry are currently consulting on the way forward to secure a source of desalinated water. The preliminary discussions are due to be concluded by the end of the second week of June 2014, at which time a decision will be announced.

Namport outlines strategic plan for Port of Walvis Bay Jade McClune The Namibia Ports Authority (Namport) is set to initiate major changes to the face of Walvis Bay over the next decade as it pushes ahead with plans of expansion in an effort to position itself as the premier port on the west coast of Africa. The new container terminal under construction at Walvis Bay harbour is due to be commissioned in March 2017, the CEO of Namport, Bisey /Uirab said last week. Namport awarded the N$3.38 billion contract for the construction of the new terminal to China Harbour Engineering Company in November last year. The new terminal on reclaimed land will expand the port’s footprint by 40 hectares (400 000m²), including a 600m quay wall, that will enable it to handle an additional 750 000 TEU per year. “By 2017, the volume of cargo handling and railway transported cargo is double that of 2012, and the Port of Walvis Bay has become the preferred African West Coast port and logistics corridor for south and

central African logistics operations,” according to the projections of the National Development Plan (NDP4). Construction of the north harbour project, known as the SADC Gateway Terminal is expected to be completed between 2016 and 2020. It will add an additional 1 330 hectares (13.3km²) to the existing port infrastructure, with a 10 000 m quay wall and 30 large berths. The cost of creating the SADC Gateway terminal is set at around N$30 billion. During phase 1, work will start in 2016 on a tanker jetty, capable of accommodating two 60 000 tonnes DWT Tankers at a time. /Uirab said the tanker jetty will be beneficial to the mining Industry, as will enhance the port’s capacity to supply fuel for mining

operations. A new ship-and rig-repair facility (Marine Repair and Supply Base) will also be a key component of the north harbour project. Beyond 2020, a large multi-purpose dry bulk terminal will be constructed during phase 2 of the SADC Gateway. In the third phase, the Botswana Coal Terminal, consisting of at least 5 berths will be set up to handle around 65 million tonnes of coal per year, most of which is destined for China and India. The coal terminal will be linked to the Trans-Kalahari Railway line and the Walvis Bay Industrial Park to be constructed behind Dune 7 on Farm 58. /Uirab told high-level representatives of the mining industry in Windhoek last week that the existing con-

tainer terminal will become a multi-functional terminal, with deep-water berths 1 to 3 for vessels with overall length of up to 300m, as well as larger bulk / break bulk vessels. The existing port also offers a large area for stockpiling. In terms of services to the mining industry, Namport’s chief said the port currently offers bulk and break bulk berths for vessels up to 198 m, which are typically used to for transferring project cargo, mining equipment, Ro-Ro vessel berthing, etc. The port is also used for the import of sulphuric acid and mining chemicals imports in containers and bagged bulk. /Uirab noted that they are looking at a proposal for a private Bulk Sulphur Handling Plant, with a handling capacity up to 70 000 tonnes of sulphur at a time.

The Walvis Bay Bulk Terminal Multi-Product facility currently handles metal ores, concentrates, lead, zinc, copper, manganese and coal. Walvis Bay Salt Refiners Terminal is used for salt exports and Okorusu Fluorspar Terminal for fluorspar exports. The recently established tanker jetty can accommodate a 40 000 DWT tanker, he said and the harbour also offers three floating docks, owned by EBH Namibia, that can accommodate vessels up to 190m long and 33m beam. In terms of the dry port facilities, /Uirab said that the Zambian operation is already in full swing and that Botswana’s dry port will be operational by mid-2014, but it appears that Zimbabwe’s dry port project has been delayed by financial difficulties.

Traditional and cultural values important – Mayor Bernabé Blaauw During the Ordinary Council meeting on Tuesday evening in the Kuisebmond Council Chambers, the Mayor of Walvis Bay, Councillor Uillika Nambahu, said that future generations are at risk of losing their traditional and cultural values.

Mayor Nambahu started her address with a brief overview of the history of Africa Day, which was commemorated on Sunday, and reiterated the importance of the day for Namibia and the African continent. With reference to the importance of the African history, she noted that future generations are at risk of losing their traditional and cultural values, especially in the face of great influences driven chiefly by the media and other social platforms. She said that it is the loss of such values that result in the lack of respect for oneself and the environment or ethical consideration that manifests itself in criminal activities such as thievery and

gender based violence for example. She added that it is regrettable seeing this continent and country go to waste while it is blessed with so many resources and for whom many have paid such a dear sacrifice towards its freedom. Mayor Nambahu pointed out that it is “our” responsibility to lead by example and teach our children the history of how far we have come as a continent and as a country, otherwise the youth will take it for granted that things have always been this easy. The council meeting continued after her speech and the following recommendations of the Management Committee were approved:

Township Establishment on Remainder Erf 192, Kuisebmond, comprising of 157 single residential erven. Revision of the Walvis Bay Town Planning Scheme (Amendment Scheme No 35), a fullscale town planning scheme review. Amendment Scheme No 36, for the rezoning of Erf 925, Walvis Bay (Single Residential to Local Business), Erf 6418, Kuisebmond (Single Residential to General Residential), Erf 3538, Narraville Extension 5 (Public Open Space to Business 1), Portion 213 of Walvis Bay Town and Townlands (Undetermined to Business 1). Need and Desirability for 33 Township Establishments for the development of erven.

This decision includes the creation of two new suburbs namely Portville and Duneville. The lease, by private transaction, of 10 000 m² (1 ha) of an unserviced piece of land at the landfill area to Rent-a-Drum for the purpose of a material recovery facility for a period of ten years. Council took note of the progress report on the timeline of the project dealing with the acquisition of industrial land at the heavy industrial area behind Dune 7, Farm 58, for the construction of a Gas Fired Power Plant. The amendment of Palm Tree Investment CC to P.A.M. Tree Investment CC and the sale of 13,8968 hectares (138 968 m²)

of an unsurveyed/unserviced Block Erf 5758, Kuisebmond to P.A.M. Tree Investments CC at N$5/m² (N$694 840). The request of the Sparta United Recreation Club to extend the current cricket oval and to relocate the Netball facilities. Council will also enter into an agreement with Sparta to support the project with an amount not exceeding N$200 000 and all the facilities wil remain Council property. The reservation of a Portion of Farm 37 for the purpose of Asparagus farming. Council took note of the legal opinion from DF Malherbe and Partners on the proposed Public Private Partnership (Joint Venture) with AFRIKUUMBA

Mayor Uillika Nambahu (Pty) Ltd and that the draft Joint Venture agreement be finalised for consideration by Council by 20 June this year. Erongo Recycling Solutions to begin a recycling service for households in Walvis Bay.

Over-expenditure on the VIP Mini Bus vote of N$30 542.45 to be added to the budgeted amount of N$400 000 for the purchase of a vehicle for the exclusive use of the Councillors.

‘I am’ becomes a watchword FNB Namibia officially announced their newly revamped values to which “I AM” is now added. Ian Leyenaar, chief executive officer of FNB Namibia said that all FNB employees would now look at the five values of the company and say I’m helpful, I’m effective, I’m ethical, I’m innovative and I’m accountable.

“The new approach is for each employee to accept personal responsibility for the way we behave in accordance with our values. We now start each value with “I am”, making it clear that, while we are striving for a collective

behaviour in terms of our values, it starts with each one of us individually—it starts with “ME.” Leyenaar elaborated and advised that, I’m helpful, for example at FNB Namibia means that employees are hu-

mane, compassionate and respectful in their dealings with other people. “The African term ‘Ubuntu’ fits this concept perfectly. Modesty is a quality we should all aspire to—so it’s important that we remain humble

at all times. Further—it is in the spirit of helpfulness in the everyday operations of the bank and in every area of the organisation that we should aspire to resolve and sort out challenges quickly,” Leyenaar added.

He requested his staff members to encourage each other to create a work environment in which expertise is freely shared and everyone help each other to succeed. “Only then can we deliver on our promise to customers”. Last-

ly - offer to help others even if there’s nothing in it for you. You might need help sooner than you know and then you’ve already put helpfulness out there,” he concluded.

Maswahu found them guilty of all the charges related to neglecting to correctly diagnose the health needs, prescribe, provide and execute correct nursing regimen for the patient, neglecting to determine the health status and the psychological response of the patient and neglecting to keep an accurate record of all

actions performed. They are all suspended for two years from practicing of which one year is suspended on condition that during that period they are not found guilty of unprofessional conduct. Kaijata Kangueehi represented the complainant, while the Shikongo Law Chambers represented the accused.

AVID case continues

A state witness in a N$30-million fraud and corruption trial of Avid Investment said that Ralph Blaauw was the contact person between the Social Security Commission and the little known investment outfit at the time. Witness Gideon Muelder, who was the Social Security Commission Manager of Corporate Finance, testified that Blaauw’s role was like that of a marketing officer or an

employee of Avid. The seven people accused of defrauding the Social Security Commission through Avid Investment pleaded not guilty at the start of their trial last week.

All the accused claimed ignorance of the activities of Avid and heaped blamed on its late portfolio manager and chief executive officer Lazarus Kandara.

Interpol making strides The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) says it has made progress in combating crime at international and continental level.

According to the Head of Interpol Regional Bureau for Southern Africa, Chilika Simfukwe the use of global communication channels and an internationally recognised aler system allows Interpol to prevent several crimes and through excellent cooperation among members states, the Regional Bureau successfully uncovered transnational organised crimes. Simfukwe noted that through the use of its

communication channels, Interpol intercepted criminals who committed crimes in their countries and fled to other countries in the region. He said Interpol provides targeted support to member countries in fingerprint, DNA analysis and disaster victim identification. The Interpol regional chief believes that with such support, criminal intelligence analysts will provide information re-

lated to specific areas of crime and criminal organisations and inform member states on time. Simfukwe said despite numerous success stories, Interpol faces financial constraints among member states, which have a negative impact on its operations. He said due to a lack of extradition laws between member states, criminals take advantage of such loopholes to escape justice.

Lesotho heads SARPCCO

Lesotho has taken over the chairmanship of the Southern African Regional Police Chiefs Co-operation Organisation, SARPCCO. The country’s Commissioner of Police, Khothatso Ts’ooana, took over from Namibia’s InspectorGeneral Sebastian Ndeitunga. Lieutenant-General Ndeitunga described his tenure as having been challenging and successful to him and the region. He pointed out financial constraints as one of the major impediments hampering the efficient operations and stressed that the regional police body helped in reducing crossborder and transnational crimes.

He identified joint police and community-policing initiatives as effective means to maintain safety and security in the SADC region. Commissioner Ts’ooana welcomed his new assignment, and said that Lesotho started to support SARPCCO operations despite financial constraints. “Police co-operation is important towards combating of crimes as shown by the current crime rate since the formation of SARPCCO 19 years ago’” he said.

Trial date set for

Conradie and Damases The N$60-million corruption case of prominent lawyer, Dirk Conradie and his co-accused Sara Damases, could go on trial in April 2015.

Prosecutor Edios Marodedze informed Judge Elton Hoff about this arrangement between him and defence lawyer Slysken Makando last week.

Vermiste tieners word steeds gesoek Madelaine Laubscher

Awian van Schalkwyk (17) en Kim Swarts (15), wat sedert 7 April vermoedelik saam weggeloop het, is steeds vermis en die soektog duur voort. Gerugte dat hulle in Namibië kan wegkruip doen ook steeds die rondte. Kim is van Amandasig en Awian van Centurion. Hulle het vermoedelik op ’n swart Honda CBR 125 motorfiets (VFV 299 GP) gevlug, in die nag van 6 April. Volgens Kim se ma was hulle net vriende, maar nadat die namib times op `n later stadium met Awian se ma gesels het was daar bevind dat hulle wel in `n romantiese verhouding betrokke is. “Ek voel so moedeloos. Albei kinders kom uit liefdevolle huise. Awian is my middel kind en Kim is die enigste kind. Awian het niks voor die tyd aangedui dat hy beplan het om weg te gaan nie. Hy het slegs `n brief gelos met die woorde “dit is tyd dat ek moet weggaan”. Nadat hulle weg is kon ek wel agterkom dat hulle dit vooraf beplan het omdat hulle enige moontlike spoor hoe ons hulle kan vind doodgevee het. Awian het sy motorfiets, wat eers rooi was, kort voor hulle weg is laat swart sprei.

Hy het vir die man wat dit oorgesprei het gese hy is haastig, want hy wil Namibië toe gaan saam met sy neef,” het sy ma vertel. Volgens Awian se ma is Kim alles vir Awian en die twee is smoorverlief. Hulle was glo nooit verbied om mekaar te sien nie. “Hulle het mekaar gereeld gesien. Elke naweek was hulle saam en soms deur die week ook.” Die koerant het vir Awian se ma gevra om `n boodskap aan die kinders te rig. “Dit is vir ons uiters belangrik dat daar nie `n vertrouensband gebreek word nie. Niemand is foutloos nie en ons wil hê hulle albei moet weet dit maak nie saak wat fout is of wat gebeur het nie, ons wil hulle graag net terug hê by die huis. Awian se sussie mis sy kos wat hy altyd gemaak het en almal verlang na hulle. Ons wil hulle ondersteun en bystaan met wat ook al fout is. Geen prob-

leem is so groot dat dit nie opgelos of hanteer kan word nie. Awian, julle hele lewe lê nog voor julle en ons wil graag help om die beste te maak van wat voorlê. Ons het julle gemis op Moedersdag. My grootste wens is dat julle net terug sal kom sodat Kim haar verjaardag op 9 Junie by die huis kan wees. Ek weet julle dink julle is nou al groot. Julle is albei baie intelligent. Deel van volwassene wees is om om te gee vir `n ander. Kim, moenie jou ma nog meer laat seerkry deur haar te laat verlang en wonder waar jy is op jou verjaardag nie. Ouerliefde verstaan mens slegs eendag as jy self kinders het. Babas kom nie met `n handboek nie. Elke kind is uniek. Geen ouer maak moedswillig foute nie. Ons is en bly baie lief vir julle,” het sy gesê. Awian se ma het ook vertel dat hulle nie vermoed dat die kinders ontvoer is nie. “Alle leidrade word deur privaatspeurder André

NOG STEEDS OP SOEK: Kim Swarts en Awian Van Schalkwyk Putter, opgevolg maar is tot dusver negatief.” Awian se ma het ook genoem dat hulle sukkel om dit op televisie te kry. “Ons wil dit graag op televisie laat uitsaai, maar ons sukkel selfs om sekere koerante in Suid-Afrika se belangstelling te kry. Hulle het glo geïnsinueer dat dit nie nuuswaardig genoeg is nie en dat hulle spasie beperk is. Hulle het dit vir Kim se ma gesê,” het sy vertel. Die koerant het self met privaatspeurder André Putter gesels. “Daar is gerugte dat hulle in Namibië of die Noord Kaap kan wees.

Ek het leidrade opgetel dat hulle in Otjiwarongo kon wees, maar niks is bevestig nie. Ek dink dit was maar nog altyd `n fantasie vir hulle om Namibië te besoek want Kim se stiefpa kom van Namibië af en hulle het glo gefantaseer oor die land. Kim het `n perd waarvoor sy bitter lief is wat sy net so agter gelaat het. Hulle kon paspoorte vervals het, want hulle het nie paspoorte gehad nie. Ek glo nie die motorfiets kon hulle baie ver neem nie, maar hulle het genoeg geld om self aan die lewe te bly. Ek glo vas hulle het hi-

erdie oor `n lang tydperk beplan. Hulle doen regtig moeite om nie gekry te word nie. Ons het die huise besoek van altwee tieners en ons kan sien dat altwee uit baie goeie huise kom. Ek dink hulle glo hulle is nou groot en wil hulle eie lewe leef. Ek kan my nie blind staar teen die feit dat hulle in Namibië kan wees nie,” het hy gesê. “Ons het vanoggend `n terugslag beleef. Awian het in Januarie al `n afspraak gemaak om uit te passeer en sy afspraak was geboek vir vandag. Ek het gehoop hy sou skelm opdaag sodat hy

wel sy rybewys kon kry, maar ongelukkig het hy nie opgedaag nie en ons is terug by `n doodloopstraat,” het hy bygevoeg. Volgens gerugte was `n meisie wat soos Kim lyk in Swakopmund gesien by Binnelandse Sake (Home Affairs), en volgens lesers in Namibië lyk altwee baie bekend. ‘n Vermiste persone-saak is by die Suid-Afrikaanse polisie aanhangig gemaak.

Vicious dogs worry Narraville residents Madelaine Laubscher

Concern has been raised about a pack of four dogs, described as dangerous, that are allowed to roam the streets of Narraville unaccompanied.

Sources said the dogs belong to a resident of Narraville and they harass other dogs in the area. It is further alleged that the dogs almost attacked a local resident last Wednesday. According to the sources, the owner of the dogs resides in Skipper Street in Narraville and sometimes allows the dogs to roam the streets. “The dogs are dangerous. It is two American pitbulls, a boerboel and a crossbred rotweiller causing havoc in the streets of the suburb. We have seen them walking in a

group on more than one occasion. These dogs are a danger to the community and need to be put under control,” a source said. Another source told the newspaper that these dogs have also attempted to attack a man. “The dogs went into a resident`s yard and wanted to attack him. He managed to scare them off. The dogs also attacked another dog during the weekend. My children are free spirited and they often play outside. These dogs pose a danger to my children seeing that they are aggressive. The owner

of these dogs should either keep them in his yard or the dogs must be confiscated by the police,” he said. The Walvis Bay SPCA was approached for comment and they said that, “The SPCA was not contacted about these dogs before. It is a matter that the animal protection services of the municipality must handle, seeing that these dogs are aggressive and are prone to attack.” Mr Deville Dreyer from the health department of the municipality said that he contacted the

owner of the dogs. “I am aware of the problem. It is very hard to catch these dogs as they run away from the car when we want to catch them. I spoke to the owner of the dogs. He said that his dogs are in the yard. We will do an inspection. I will also contact the Walvis Bay SPCA for assistance to inspect. If the complaints continue in the future, the dogs will have to be removed,” he said. The newspaper could not get a comment from the owner of the dogs at the time of going to print.

Obtaining Fishing

Permits

Obtain a permit from the Namibian Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources (MFMR) to catch fish or dive for crayfish and respect harvesting limitations.

The off-the-cuff briefing was called in response to several media reports and inquires which alleged that Namport are engaged in the illegal handling and storage of dangerous goods such as radioactive material, spent nuclear cartridges, plutonium and explosives. “There is no dangerous cargo stored outside the boundaries of the port. It is the norm that people declare goods in transit. There are always those individuals with mischievous agendas such as the people who brought in counterfeit cigarettes in the past. We act as soon as we become aware of any dodgy activities. Native Holdings will be liaising with Namport and no nuclear material or waste will be stored,” said /Uirab who stressed that Namport did not have a problem as was insinuated at the meeting in Narraville. According to him Namport was inundated with calls concerning the handling and storage of dangerous goods following a much publicised public meeting, held by EnvroSolutions on behalf of Native Venture Holdings, with regard to the proposed establishment of a temporary dangerous goods storage facility at

the former navy radio bunker on the outskirts of Narraville in Walvis Bay. Native Storage Facility managing member Mr Thomas Jonas, who also attended Tuesday’s press briefing, caused a furore when he said he had done his homework and discovered that dangerous goods are currently stored at various non compliant locations within the harbour area and surrounding warehouse facilities before being dispatched to their final destinations. He made the statement during a public meeting in Narraville last week. He also said that capacity is limited at the harbour and storage facilities of dangerous goods and materials require legislation and standards compliance which is lacking in certain instances. Jonas refuted having made the statements and also denied having drawn in Namport during the discussion in Narraville. “The presentation was made by EnviroSolutions. There is definitely a need for such a storage facility,” he said. /Uirab went to great lengths and explained that an application for the importation of arms, ammunition or explosives must be accompanied by a valid

import permit issued by the Namibian Police and must be transported under police escort from the perimeters of the port to its final destination or in case of transit cargo to the border of the next country. “As per our records and since the inception of Namport in 1994, no nuclear waste or any other form of radio active goods has been landed in Namibian Ports. The only exception is the export of Uranium oxide (yellow cake from Namibia’s Uranium mines) which is allowed to be stored on port premises for a maximum period of three days before shipment due to low radiation levels,” said /Uirab and pointed out that pre and post radiation readings are taken for every shipment to ensure that naturally occurring radiation background levels are not exceeded. He further stated that Namport had no direct or indirect interest in the establishment of a hazardous cargo facility intended by Native Venture Holdings but recognised that the establishment of such a facility may have positive spinoffs for Namibia. The port authority’s engagement with Native Holdings dates back to 2012. Namport is-

sued a letter of support to the project on the condition that Native Venture Holdings obtain all necessary statutory approvals and source their own business. “Native Storage Holdings approached Namport and explained the concept. We like what we heard. The country needs these materials” he commented. /Uirab explained that ports all over the world serve to facilitate the movement of seaborne trade and play a vital role in the economic growth of countries. Namport serves as a conduit to receive and handle various types of cargo including dangerous cargo and the processes and procedures for the handling of such material are aligned to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code) and the Namibian Law, where applicable. The landing and loading of all dangerous goods are preceded by a written submission and deceleration of such goods by a client. Namport evaluates and assess dangerous goods handling requests against the requirements of the IMDG Code upon receiving an application before approval is granted and this procedure applies for all goods in transit

through the port. He also pointed out that in so far the storage of dangerous goods are concerned, some classes of such goods are compatible with certain other classes and can be stored together while some classes are incompatible with certain other classes and are stored separately in order to avoid any dangerous situations from arising. Incompatible dangerous goods stored at Namibian ports are stored as per the IMDG Code’s segregation table. Special cargo such as Class 7 (Radio Active Material), Class 1 (Explosives) and Class 6.2 (Infectious Substances) are not allowed to be discharged at night-time and may not be stored in Namibian ports. Such cargo must be removed from the port the same day it is landed. It is common knowledge that huge quantities of ammonium nitrate are used by the mining industry. Namport has only landed one such cargo in the past and most consignments currently arrive by road. According to a source the quantity of ammonium nitrate needed is set to increase manifold due to the large scale of mining operations at Husab mine.

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?

Walvis Bay’s Aunt Emmie turns 100

The staff members of Ocean Liner Services (OLS) and Manica Business Centre (MBC) coordinated the collection efforts and the Human Resource and Finance Departments collected

about N$2 300 worth of pet food. The Pandula Trust, which is an employee-managed charity fund within Bidvest Namibia, also contributed towards the collection efforts and donated N$2 000

worth of food, blankets, toys, brushes and detergents to the SPCA. The collection coordinator of MBC, Soenet Geel said it was heart-warming to see the staff members opening their hearts

for dogs and cats through this charity drive. “It was a fun activity with lots of healthy rivalry between departments. We greatly appreciate the contributions,” she said.

Madelaine Laubscher A resident at Huis Palms in Walvis Bay turned 100 years on Monday, becoming a centenarian. Family members and members of Huis Palms decided to celebrate the memorable occasion on Saturday, before her birthday. The namib times attended the celebration along with family members who came from South Africa, Germany as well as local friends. A spokesperson from Huis Palms, Mrs Winie Lubbe, spoke to the newspaper about this special occasion. “Aunt Emmie was born in 1914 and she will be 100 on Monday. The day was a memorable occasion to those who attended the party. We thank all the sponsors for the cake, platters, all

the flowers, balloons and the beautiful banner,” Lubbe said. Family members said it is amazing that Aunt Emmie is not on any medication and has no medical conditions that usually come with old age. “Thank you to all the Huis Palms personnel and for the effort that you put in. We would like to thank Pastor Martins from Swakopmund who delivered a very inspiring message, which we are also very grateful for,” Lubbe Cindy Vermaak (OLS), Michelle Geere (SPCA), Soenet Geel (MBC) and Sylvanus Shetunyenga (OLS) said.

The retreat was held to give a support structure to those who are struggling with grief and who are still mourning the death of a loved one. The event was attended by various members of the community; some had the opportunity to share their experiences with the group. Speakers at the event gave advice and supportive information surrounding the grieving process. One testimonial given at the event was that of an elderly woman from South Africa, who had a vision from her grandmother who told her to come to Walvis Bay where the grandmother is buried, and to visit the grandmother’s church which is the Catholic Church, St Petrus parish. The various stages in the grieving process are shock and denial, confusion, emotional release, anger, guilt, depression and isolation, and finally, recovery. Even though the duration of the stages in grieving may differ from person to person, the process is still basically the same. However, even though these feelings are common to everyone who grieves, the important thing to remember is that grief is part of the human experience and part of what makes us all just that - humans.

Theft at Standard Bank an ‘inside job’ A 21-year old employee of Standard Bank was taken into custody at Walvis Bay on Monday in connection with a fraud case involving large sums of money transferred from bank clients to a private account. Annalie Swartz Anyone can fall in such a trap, nobody is perfect. We just need to resist the temptation to fall 4 satan and by resisting we need to bow down and pray.... Ask God to guide and protect us and give us strength to make the right choices or decisions. We are not allowed to judge or blame because it’s not our place to do that. If God can forgive and forget our wrong doings or sins why shouldn’t we also do that? Nadrin Williams We should not be so concerned with the culprits and their punishments but more concerned by the little progress/effort some of our banks have made to prevent/stop such crimes. This type of criminal activity has been around for quite a while now and little has been done to fight it, except for the random “bust” now and then. What’s more worrying is the ease at which these criminals have access to our personal bank accounts. Isn’t our money supposed to be ‘safe’ in our bank accounts? Let this be a challenge to the banks to act and improve on this weakness of theirs or let the justice system start making examples out of those participating in these crimes... And huge bail amounts would not suffice for anything, after all these fines are being paid for with the money’s of others and not their own.

RDP resolutions

The Rally for Democracy and Progress Youth League (RDPYL) held its ordinary Central Committee meeting on the 17th-18th May 2014 at Okambonde, Oshikoto Region. The meeting had a major aim to complete its executive structure, elect delegates to the RDP’s forthcoming Electoral College and the Central Committee elected cadres to lead the wing at its National Executive Committee (NEC) level. The RDPYL also deliberated on wide-ranging strategic matters aimed at strengthening the Wing and the Party as it readies for the forthcoming elections, as well as those concerning the Namibian youth. It hence passed the following resolutions: That the automatic qualification onto the parliamentary list must be discouraged; that the continuous flagrant violation of our citizens’ dignity by Municipalities, especially Oshakati Town Council and the City of Windhoek, where shelters of residents are being demolished must be vehemently

condemned. These acts remind us of the South African apartheid regime; that the blackmailing by some regional councillors in rural areas that they will stop social programs, such as drought relief and old age pension grants, must be rejected and that they should know that social programs are funded by all Namibians through our taxes and meant for all Namibians irrespective of their political affiliations; that the National Youth Service (NYS) must take youth volunteers seriously. This comes as we have noted that the NYS takes in trainees for employment into programs that are completely different from the ones trained for and often underpaid. The RDPYL resolved to take up the matter further; that the Ministry of Veterans Affairs compensates the surviving relatives of fall-

en ex-combatants. Families of fallen heroes, whose blood waters our freedom, languishing in poverty must be compensated; that political intimidation has come and gone, and RDPYL will no longer allow the political harassment as we conduct our campaigns; that the continuous employment of expatriates at the expense of skilled Namibians, as we see at NHE and the 200 Chinese nationals at Husab Mine, should be stopped forthwith and skills transfer mechanisms be put in place for Namibians to be empowered; that the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources consider the allocation of fishing quotas to all the 14 regions for regional development. RDPYL Deputy Secretary General Immanuel Shikukumwa

Swakopmund Matters The Benguela Current Commission (BCC) has stated its support for Namibia’s decision to put a moratorium on seabed phosphate mining, given uncertainties around whether the action is potentially dangerous to the environment. Read full article at the following link: http://www.namibiansun.com/ business/diamond-mining-maythreaten-coast.66001. NOTE the following section: The BCC’s Executive Secretary, Dr Hashali Hamukuaya, highlights that the BCLME is one of the most productive marine ecosystems on earth and a globally significant centre for marine biodiversity. “It is also worth noting that Namibia has placed a moratorium on mining the seabed for phosphates, partly because of the closeness of the mining area to fishing activities and nursery areas

for certain deep-sea fish species,” he says. The BCC supports Namibia’s application of the precautionary principle, which stipulates that mining practices should not be undertaken if the consequences remain uncertain or if the action is potentially dangerous to the health of the environment”.

The World Through my lens Anri Jacobs This week I have a few tips for you rather than focusing on one topic. Try and work these tips into your photography and see your photography improving and becoming more interesting by the shot. Incorporate action in your shots. This can be done by playing with your shutter speed, something I spoke about last week. This can be an interesting setting to play with and you can use it in various ways depending on what you want to show. You can use it by slowing down your shutter speed and show your subject in action, or you can speed up you shutter speed and freeze your subject right in the middle of the action. Reflective Surfaces This is something different to use, even when doing self-portraits. Making use of reflective surfaces such as water mirrors or anything re-

flective for that matter can add new depth and meaning to your image. Using different aspects such as reflective surfaces will allow you to stray away from the norm and create unique shots that will set you apart from the rest. You will find that when you start paying attention to deeper details such as these you will start developing your personal style much faster. Focus on natural light Natural light has so much beauty to offer, if we only take the time to see and use it. You can make use of the high ISO settings that the brand new cameras offer us, when you find yourself in a situation

Focus on natural light

with extreme low light. By not using flash in low light, but rather harnessing all of the light with a high ISO you can create stunning effects. You may however find that in low light situations that you have difficulty with your camera’s auto focussing. In this situation you should make use of manual focusing. Play with colour Following on the previous point of harnessing all the colour that scenes have to offer, I want to point out again that colour affects the mood of your image. Carefully monitor a location’s colour as it changes from morning till night and choose the mood and colours that will best compliment your subject. Mistakes can be good Remember that making mistakes can often result in one of the best images you have ever created. Plus digital photography allows you to be able to easily correct your mistakes and try again if you did not get the desired result. Very often we have

to go back to a shoot and re-shoot it completely in order to get it perfectly the way we want it. Change in perspective Something I’ve spoken about before, is the various angles we use and the different effects that they can have on our image and subject. Remember that shooting pictures from a higher angle than the subject can be degrading, except if you want this effect. Therefore sometimes it might be a good idea to get down low and get to your subjects level for a different perspective.

House band for NAMA’s The 2015 NAMA’s will have a dedicated NAMA’s house band that will play for all performing artists, according to Tim Ekandjo, NAMA Executive Chairman. “We would like to accommodate more live band performances but it becomes challenging when every performing artist want to perform with their own band. The idea is therefore to set up a dedicated NAMA in-house band that will be tasked with playing on the night for all performing artists that have the desire to perform with a live band. We are therefore calling on band members who are interested in joining the NAMA house band to submit their names and

short experience to our offices so that we can conclude this process in the next few months. We would like to finalise it now because we are well aware that this band will need sufficient time to get used to practising various music genres, and we will of course keep this band active with rehearsals so that they get used to each other,” said Ekandjo. The NAMA’s are therefore looking for two bass guitarists, two lead guitarists, two saxophonists, two drummers, and four

keyboard players. The reason we want two per instrument is because we want to have backup just in case a member cannot make it for whatever reason. This year the event did incredibly well with the introduction of professional dancers and that is why the standard of performances was different. That increased the currency of the show and the organisers are looking at upping the levels in different areas of the show.

An der Atlantikküste,in der Namibwüste

Päng - oder wo sind die Originale geblieben?

Er hieß mit Spitznamen Spatz und war ein Original. Jeden Morgen, wenn er in die Klasse kam, stellten wir mit Begeisterung fest, dass er immer noch dieselbe Hose anhatte, mit demselben Loch, das durch eine handfeste schwarze Sicherheitsnadel verschämt zusammengehalten wurde. Er trug sie auch bei festlichen Anlässen, zu Kaisers Geburtstag, und sogar im Theater zu Don Carlos, wo wir anderen mit frisch gebügelten und rausgewachsenen Konfirmationsanzügen erschienen. Aber während wir unsere faulen Witze machten und Programmblätter im Schaukelflug ins Parkett hinabschickten, saß er mit glühenden Backen und bekam nasse Augen, als Marquis Posa vom König Gedankenfreiheit verlangte. Und ging still nach Hause. Mit der Sicherheitsnadel im Hosenboden, die zur Feier des Tages gegen eine neue, blanke vertauscht war. Man wird es schon gemerkt haben: Dieses Original war kein Lehrer, sondern ein Schüler. Darin bestand seine besondere Originalität. Und die Sicherheitsnadel am Hosenboden war keine Schlamperei, sondern Trotz. Eine innere Auflehnung gegen die bürgerliche Ordnung. Wir waren furchtbar stolz auf ihn. Die andern Klassen beneideten uns. Und als er eines Tages aus unerklärlicher Ursache mit einer anderen Hose ohne Loch und Sicherheitsnadel kam, waren wir empört und haben ihn verprügelt. Das war dumm von uns. Denn beinahe hätte er daraufhin auf dieses Wahrzeichen verzichtet, aus Trotz gegen die Klasse. Aber der Trotz gegen die Schule war stärker. Er hatte noch andere Ticks. Er redete unsere Erzieher niemals mit „Herr Professor“ oder „Herr Oberlehrer“ an, sondern sagte mit kindlicher Stimme: Herr Lehrer. Dieses aber bescheiden in der dritten Person. Es war für uns ein erhebender Augenblick, wenn er sich manchmal in der Mathematikstunde mit seiner knochigen Länge erhob und mit sanfter Stimme erklärte: „Verzeihung, der Herr Lehrer hat einen Fehler

wieder Päng! Aber Päng mit einem Ausrufungszeichen. Da erkannte man, dass der Schüler einem unwiderstehlichen Drang gehorchte. Und ließ ihn gewähren. Lieber richtige Lösungen mit Päng als den pänglosen Unsinn, den die andern schrieben. Im Grunde genommen: Es war gar kein Tick von ihm, kein unwiderstehlicher Drang. Sondern Trotz. Ein Stück Revolution. Im Grunde genommen: Die Schule glaubte auch gar nicht an einen Tick. Sie tat dick und rot an den nur so. Sie war die Rand: „Was heißt Klügere. Päng. Päng?“ Unser Spatz blieb die Antwort Aus: Spoerl, Heinschuldig. Er schrieb rich: Päng. In: sein „Päng“ beharrlich Spoerl, Heinrich: hinter alle richtigen M a n k a n n r u h i g Lösungen.

S. 67 – 72 matiklehrer griff zum Äußersten und schrieb an den Rand: „U.d.V.“ „U.d.V.“ war gefürchteter als Arrest. U.d.V. hieß: Unterschrift des Vaters und bedeutete häusliche Katastrophen. Nicht bei Spatz. Einen Vater hatte er nicht, und seine Mutter hatte vor ihm, dem höheren Schüler, einen grenzenlosen Respekt. Sie krakelte glückstrahlend ihren Namen dahin, wo ihr Sohn mit dem Finger zeigte, und hielt es für eine besondere Auszeichnung. Dann begann die Stufenleiter der Strafen: Eintrag ins Klassenbuch. Eine Stunde Arrest. Zwei Stunden Arrest. Schließlich Konferenz. Die Konferenz fragte, warum er das tue. Er zuckte die Achseln. Ob er das nicht unterlassen könne? – Doch. Er tat es weiter. Nur ein einziEntspannende ges Mal schrieb er kein Päng hinter die Lösung; das war, als er die Höhe eines Turmes mit 0,0000073 Meter heElisabeth rausgerechnet hatte und zu faul war, den Kossmann Fehler zu suchen.

gemacht.“ Er konnte sich das erlauben. Dieses und anderes. Er war ein ausgesprochener Talentflegel. Flegel waren wir alle, aber er verband damit eine geradezu pathologische Intelligenz, mit der er alles erschlug. Er war einer von denen, die es später im Leben schwer haben, weil ihnen in der Jugend alles zu leicht fiel. Nur an sein Päng konnte die Schule sich nicht gewöhnen. Er hatte in einer mathematischen Klassenarbeit eine besonders elegante Lösung gefunden und in der Freude seines Herzens hinter das Resultat das Wort „Päng“ geschrieben: „x = y (a-b). Päng .“ Es war ihm ganz in Gedanken herausgerutscht. Aber als es dastand, machte es ihm Spaß, und er ließ es stehen. Päng war bei uns ein viel gebrauchtes Wort. Es hieß so viel wie basta oder hurra oder wassagst-du-nun. Im mündlichen Unterricht konnte man es durchgehen lassen, wenn es auch keine mathematische Ausdrucksweise war. In einer Klassenarbeit war es fehl am Platze. Unser Mathematiklehrer nahm es nicht tragisch und begnügte sich damit, durch das Päng einen wohlwollenden roten Strich zu machen. Das hätte er lieber nicht tun sollen. In der nächsten Arbeit stand es wieder: „Der Schnellzug braucht mithin sieben Stunden sechsundvierzig Minuten. – Päng.“ Diesmal gab es einen missbilligenden roten Kreis um das Wort. Einen Kreis, wie man ihn sonst um einen Klecks oder Schmutzfleck bekommt. Die nächste Arbeit endigte wieder mit Päng. Da wurde der Mathematiker böse und schrieb

Ich muss unbedingt aufhören, meinen Kollegen und Kolleginnen zu sagen: ,,Wie dumm kann man nur sein?!” Sie fangen an, es als eine Herausforderung zu sehen!

Worte der Woche

Ansprache an Millionäre Warum wollt ihr so lange warten, bis sie euren geschminkten Frauen und euch und den Marmorpuppen im Garten eins über den Schädel hauen? Warum wollt ihr euch denn nicht bessern? Bald werden sie über die Freitreppen drängen und euch erstechen mit Küchenmessern und an die Fenster hängen. Sie werden euch in die Flüsse jagen. Sinnlos werden dann Schrei und Gebet sein. Sie werden euch die Köpfe abschlagen. Dann wird es zu spät sein. Dann wird sich der Strahl der Springbrunnen röten. Dann stellen sie euch an die Gartenmauern. Sie werden kommen und schweigen und töten. Niemand wird über euch trauern. Wie lange wollt ihr euch weiter bereichern? Wie lange wollt ihr aus Gold und Papieren Rollen und Bündel und Barren speichern? Ihr werdet alles verlieren. Ihr seid die Herrn von Maschinen und Ländern. Ihr habt das Geld und die Macht genommen. Warum wollt ihr die Welt nicht ändern, bevor sie kommen? Ihr sollt ja gar nicht aus Güte handeln! Ihr seid nicht gut. Und auch sie sinds nicht. Nicht euch, aber die Welt zu verwandeln, ist eure Pflicht! Der Mensch ist schlecht. Er bleibt es künftig. Ihr sollt euch keine Flügel anheften. Ihr sollt nicht gut sein, sondern vernünftig. Wir sprechen von Geschäften. Ihr helft, wenn ihr halft, nicht etwa nur ihnen. Man kann sich, auch wenn man gibt, beschenken. Die Welt verbessern und dran verdienen das lohnt, drüber nachzudenken. Macht Steppen fruchtbar! Befehlt! Legt Gleise! Organisiert den Umbau der Welt! Ach, gäbe es nur ein Dutzend Weise mit sehr viel Geld… Ihr seid nicht klug. Ihr wollt noch warten. Uns tut es leid. Ihr werdets bereuen. Schickt aus dem Himmel paar Ansichtskarten! Es wird uns freuen. Erich Kästner

Museum sucht Zinkbadewanne

Nostalgie: Romantisch mit Rosen bemalte, Zinkbadewanne auf verzierten Füßen. Foto: Internet

Swakopmund (sk) ,,Ich wünsch mir eine Badewanne!/Jetzt bin ich noch ganz klein, /aber solch eine von Ur-Oma soll’s sein!/ Fürs Museum wäre das schöön –manne!” So dichtet Eberhard Tölken. Ja, das Swakopmunder Museum würde sich über eine Zinkbadewanne, passend zu seinem Kupferbadeofen, riesig freuen. ,,Vielleicht hat jemand so etwas als Gerümpel irgendwo zu stehen und freut sich, wenn er das Museum erfreuen könnte”, meint Herr Tölken.

Liebe Küstenleser, neulich traf ich zum wiederholten Male ei-ne Bekannte bei Shoprite. Ja, natürlich bei Shoprite, denn da sind die Lebensmittel doch kammakastig am billigsten. Und bei den heutigen horrenden Preisen und der grauen Wolke der Wirtschaftskrise, die nun auch volle Kanne das südliche Afrika getroffen hat, geht man dorthin, wo man am wenigsten Moneten aus dem Portmonee ziehen muss.

Die Fingerdrucktherapie aus Japan

Swakopmund (sk) Kennen wir doch alle in irgendeiner Form: steifen Nacken, verspannte Schulter, unbewegliche Hüfte, Schmerzen. Es gibt eine japanische Behandlungsmethode, die diese Unpässlichkeiten lindern kann. Sie nennt sich Shiatsu und kann auch als Akupunktur ohne Nadeln bezeichnet werden. Sie beruht auf dem chinesischen Erfahrungswissen, dass der Mensch auch von der Energie bestimmt wird, die in seinem Körper entlang der so genannten Meridiane fließt. Ist diese Energie ausgeglichen, fühlt sich der Mensch wohl, ist sie blockiert, fühlt er sich überfordert, müde, ohne Vitalität und manchmal auch krank. Shiatsu hilft dem gesunden Menschen, mit seiner Energie in Einklang zu kommen und zu bleiben. Es wirkt vorbeugend gegen

The Nissan NP200 Loaded limited edition Nissan’s popular NP200 half-ton bakkie is now available in an exciting new limited edition. The locally-built and developed Nissan NP200 Loaded features a host of value-adding enhancements and special additions, and will be available in a production run of just 300 units. Building on the NP200’s already impressive credentials, the new NP200 Loaded seeks to enhance its lifestyle and sports appeal with visual upgrades forming the essence of its unique list of accessories. The Nissan

NP200 is a dual-purpose vehicle, providing great versatility and practicality for business use with features including an 800 kg payload, a standard rubberised load box (1 250 litres) and a speciallydesigned tailgate which can handle 300 kg - a feature common in much

larger pickups. The tractable petrol engine in the LOADED limited edition makes loadlugging easier, with peak torque (200 Nm) available relatively low down in the rev range (3 000 rpm), matched to short ratios for the first three gears.

Personal use is enhanced by the smarty-designed and spacious cabin, which features numerous storage spaces for a practical and comfortable lifestyle vehicle. NP200 Product Manager at Nissan South Africa, Isa Giunta comments: “The Nissan NP200 features class-leading specification, high quality levels and a tough

personality. Features like this have seen over 63,000 NP200’s sold to date, proving time and again it is South Africa’s favourite half-ton bakkie. The large cabin and smart design has also been highlighted by our customers, who find the NP200 to be a reliable and great value-for-money bakkie with low service and parts costs. “In the IPSOS product quality research survey, the NP200 was awarded the Overall Satisfaction title for its segment, two years in a row. The revered Kinsey report also points out that parts pricing is a very strong NP200 trait. In addition, the NP200 builds on the legendary reliability and strong South African ties created by its forebear, the Nissan 1400 Bakkie. The Nissan NP200 Loaded limited edition, rides proudly on existing NP200 qualities and offers an exciting and sporty new look, while maintaining a great price. As the name suggests, the new NP200 Loaded has been fitted with smart extras while maintaining top-level value-for-money. Based on the 64 Kw/ 128 Nm Nissan NP200 1.6 with air conditioning and the safety package (ABS and dual airbags), the NP200 Loaded is available exclusively in white, and features special “Loaded” branding which incorporates silver and red accents in the decals, carpets and seats. Loaded-specific equipment inside includes full leather upholstery, a frontloading CD/MP3/WMA/ radio/USB/aux and Bluetooth-enabled audio system, special black carpets and remote central locking. On the outside, stainless steel nudge- and sports bars, black roof rails, a black tonneau cover and specially-designed NissanConcept alloy wheels complete the Loaded look. All accessories have been specifically developed and approved for the NP200 Loaded and do not affect the vehicle’s standard and class-leasing 6-year/150 000 km warranty. Totalling a value-add of 29%, the extras fitted to the Nissan NP200 Loaded represent exceptional value and unique appeal, with a resultant vehicle price difference below their R25 000-extra worth and one which still makes the NP200 Loaded a classleading value proposition.

German Journalists visit Walvis Bay Dorcas Mhungu

A press delegation from different media houses in Germany visited Namport recently during their tour of Namibia. The commercial counsellor at the Embassy of Namibia in Germany, Dr Mekondjo Kaapanda-Girmus said the aim of the visit by the German journalists was to introduce Namibia to the reporters as a business location, tourist - and investment destination because the country has a lot to offer for German com-

panies. The group of 14 journalists travelled throughout the country and held meetings with different stakeholders and members of the communities. The group visited Walvis Bay to gain an insight of the transport and harbour logistics. “Namibia and Germany came a long way since 1800 and the rela-

tionship has both good and bad memories, but the future is what is more important and must be crafted by the two nations and work together as two equals for the eventual good of the two countries. The scope of the benefits of the trip must be widened to consider the importance of Walvis Bay in southern Africa

to cater for the 300 million people in the SADC region and Namport’s endeavour to provide a logistical supply chain to its landlocked neighbouring countries,” said Namport chief executive officer, Bisey /Uirab. The journalists also visited the Sea Work and Omankete fish processing factories in Walvis Bay.

Farewell to an International Icon Piquet Jacobs

Dr Maya Angelou, a poet, memoirist, dancer, singer, actress, playwright, producer, director, teacher, civil rights activist and women’s rights advocate, who kicked down the door for many African-American and other female artists, passed away on the morning of 28 May. She was 86 years old. Angelou was born Marguerite Annie Johnson on April 4, 1928, in St. Louis, Missouri. She was raised in Stamps, Arkansas, by her paternal grandmother, Annie Henderson. By 1951, Angelou was married to a Greek electrician, former sailor, and aspiring musician Tosh Angelos, despite the condemnation of interracial relationships at the time and the disapproval of her mother. She then moved to New York City with her husband and her son so that she could study African dance with Trinidadian dancer  Pearl Primus. Her marriage came to an end in 1954. Angelou got the opportunity to tour through Europe with a produc-

tion of the opera Porgy and Bess during 1954 and 1955 and in 1957 she recorded her first album,  Miss Calypso, which was reissued as a CD in 1996. This led to her appearance in an off-Broadway review, which inspired the film Calypso Heat Wave, Angelou sang and performed her own compositions. In 1993, Angelou recited her poem “On the Pulse of Morning” at the inauguration of President  Bill Clinton, becoming the first poet to make an inaugural recitation since Robert Frost at John F. Kennedy’s inauguration in 1961. In June 1995, she delivered what Richard Long called her “second ‘public’ poem”, entitled “A Brave and Startling Truth”, at the com-

memoration of the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, and several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning more than fifty years. She received dozens of awards and several honorary doctoral degrees. In all, she received over 30 honorary degrees, granting her the Dr Maya Angelou title. In Angelou’s lifetime, she was closely associated with people like novelist James O. Killens; major African-American authors, including John Henrik Clarke,  Rosa Guy,  Paule Marshall, and  Julian Mayfield; civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.;

actors, Abbey Lincoln,  Roscoe Lee Brown,  James Earl Jones,  Louis Gossett,  Godfrey Cambridge, and Cicely Tyson; Malcolm X;  Rosa Guy;  James Baldwin; cartoonist Jules Feiffer; editor  Robert Loomis; singer  Roberta Flack; Oprah Winfrey; Alfre Woodard and Wesley Snipes. Angelou campaigned for Senator Hillary Clinton of the Democratic Party in the 2008 presidential primaries.  When Clinton’s campaign ended, Angelou put her support behind Senator  Barack Obama, who later won the elections. She is well known for her quotes such as, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never

Dr Maya Angelou forget how you made them feel.” And “I’m a woman, phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, that’s me.” Angelou was found dead by her caregiver. She had reportedly

been in poor health and had cancelled recent scheduled appearances. Tributes were paid by  Barack Obama, and Bill Clinton.  Harold Augenbraum,

from the National Book Foundation, said that Angelou’s “legacy is one that all writers and readers across the world can admire and aspire to be.”

Goju-Kai Namibia back from Japan

Ten senior Namibian Goju-Kai karate practitioners recently returned from Tokyo, Japan after having taken part in a karate training and cultural exchange event with Goju Kai Japan for 10 days during the first half of May. The official handing over of belts and certificates will be held at Atlantis Sport Club and will be preceded by a training session on 14 June. The Namibian contingent joined a South African group to train with some of the top masters in the style of Goju Kai karate. This exchange and training event is by invitation only and has become an annual occurrence which gives students of the martial art of karate the opportunity to experience the culture and roots of the art in the place and origin of Goju Kai karate. The Namibian contingent was led by the Chief Instructor in Namibia, Shihan Leonard Martin (5th Dan black belt) who has also graded and trained many times in Japan and has achieved high accolades in a number of the World Championships hosted by the Interna-

tional Karate-Do Goju Kai Association over the past twenty years. Members of the Namibian contingent were invited to attempt at grading to their next belt levels, with the following results being achieved: Ryan Geyser th (5 Dan black belt), rd Dean Theisinger (3 Dan black belt), Bruno Lourenco (2 n d Dan black belt), Eugene Strauss (2nd Dan black belt), Diego Brandt (2nd Dan black belt), Jacques Paulsen (1st Dan black belt), Katelin Martin (1st Dan black belt) and Angel Zhang (1st Dan black belt). It is a highlight for any karate student to be graded by the most senior members in the organisation, and the level of skills displayed by the Namibian students was at a very high level. Of specific significance, was the achievements of Sensei Ryan Geyser and Katelin Martin. Ryan being the first novice

member of Namibia Goju Kai, whom as a white belt beginner, has climbed the ladder and achieved the very th high grade of 5 Dan black belt. Katelin is the daughter of wellknown Shihan Leonard Martin, and has now ensured that his legacy continues, his karate has now gone full circle with his daughter's achievement to the much coveted 1st Dan black belt. Namibia Goju Kai has a long history with Japan with its Founder and President, Renshi Shihan Trevor Norval (6th Dan black belt) training under the founder of the style during his earlier years in karate. The style of Goju Kai was introduced to Namibia when Shihan Trevor Norval returned to Namibia in 1990. Since those humble beginnings, dojos have been established in Windhoek, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay offering traditional

karate teachings as well as the latest training in sport karate. Goju Kai Namibia with the dedication of its Senior instructors has

since produced some highly qualified karateka who have proved themselves in the local and international karate arena. Goju-Kai

Namibia offers tuition to all ages at their dojos in Walvis Bay, Windhoek, Swakopmund. For more information, please contact: Walvis Bay: Shihan Leonard

Martin (081129 7015). Swakopmund: Sensei Sammy Neumann (0812777522) or Windhoek: Sensei Ryan Geyser (081127 6341).

Last Tuesday saw a good turnout of senior golfers who came to compete for the champion's trophy as well as one of the bottles of “grape juice”, as always kindly sponsored by Ocean View Spar, our friendly grocer on the hill.

Co-sponsors for the month were Frikkie van Rooi and Dennis Anderson. After being a regular contender for the most golf award, Flippie Beukes decided to show us that he can still play this wonderful game and finished off with an excellent 37 stableford points. In second place on 36 points was Vic Moll and third, also on 36 points, was Francois Loots. It was a welcome back to the Seniors Captain, Bruce Burns, from his recent “visit” to Cape Town. We all wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the fairways soon.
