President Pohamba paid a surprise visit to the National Mass Housing Project in Kuisebmond yesterday. National Housing Enterprise (NHE) representative Michael Ileka introduced the President to Mr Elvin Naidoo of 7Sirs construction company and took the President on a tour of the NHE project. According to Ileka the President expressed satisfaction with the progress being made by NHE in Walvis Bay and called on the organisation to continue delivering. The President was relaxed and made some recommendations with regard to the layout and the sizes of houses being constructed. He strolled around the site and telephoned the NHE chief executive officer Vincent Hailulu and invited him and the Minister of Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development, Charles Namoloh to pay him a visit as soon as he returns to Windhoek.

Swakopmund massa behuisingsprojek skop af Marshallino Beukes

Die Namibiese regering se doelwit om binne die volgende 17 jaar behuising vir elke landsburger te skep, het te midde van vele negatiewe publisiteit en teenstrydighede, ook vandeesweek in Swakopmund afgeskop. Die plan is om altesaam 3 034

Page 16 huise in die kusdorp te bou.

Locker vom Hocker Die getal is die grootste hoe-

veelheid huise wat landwyd in 'n dorp gebou gaan word. Die suksesvolle tenderaars is Power Oyeno-Namibia (2 034 eenhede), Ferusa Capital (600 eenhede) en Delta Group (400 eenhede). Hulle het Dinsdag amptelik die erwe vanaf die nasioPage 20 nale behuisingsonderneming

(NHE) ontvang. Die eerste sooi behoort teen volgende week gespit te word. Tydens die oorhandigingseremonie het die Besturende Direkteur van Power OyenoNamibia, mnr Paulo Shipoke, genoem dat 12 sub-kontrakteurs, waarvan 70% kusgebonde is, met hierdie projek behulpsaam gaan wees. Hy het ook genoem dat hulle dit goed gedink het om inwoners

van die DRC woongebied, nie net met behuising tot hulp te wees nie, maar hulle ook ‘n kans te gun om self deel te wees van die projek, by wyse van ‘n eie onderneming wat gaan help met die bouery. Die plan is blykbaar om 80 eenhede per maand kaf te draf. Tydens hierdie geleentheid het die eerste burger van Swakopmund, mnr Juuso

Kambueshe, aangedui dat die stap deur kontrakteurs, om werksgeleenthede vir DRC inwoners te skep, prysenswaardig is. Kambueshe het ook genoem dat hierdie die eerste stap tot die afskaffing van plakkershutte in die dorp is. Mnr Uazuva Kaumbi van NHE, wat hoog in sy noppies met die verwikkelinge is, het dit ‘n dag “vir feesvieringe”

genoem en aangedui dat die suksesvolle tenderaars onder meer op grond van hul vorige ondervinding aangestel is. Hy het ook te kenne gegee dat die tender nie net die oprig van wonings behels nie, maar ook die diens van die erwe. Uitbreiding 9 (Mondesa) is volgens aanduidings die eerste area wat baat gaan vind by hierdie projek.



Swakop Uranium starts

Husab mining operation Jade McClune

A high-powered delegation of politicians and business leaders attended a ceremony at Swakop Uranium’s Husab mine to mark the official start of mining operations on Thursday. President Hifikepunye Pohamba, Founding President Sam Nujoma, as well as the Minister of Mines and Energy, Isak Katali, featured prominently on the list of VIP’s at the ceremony, which took place at the site of the new mine, some 65 km east of Swakopmund. Construction of the Husab Project started in November 2012 and first production is expected in the last half of 2015. Swakop Uranium owns the Husab ore body and will operate the mine, which it has been constructing since the first blast was detonated in March 2012. The company says that Husab will be twice the size of the nearby Rössing Uranium Mine. “Yes, it will be almost double the size. One of the two Husab pits will be comparable to Rössing’s pit,” the company says on its website. The proposed new tailings storage facility will be approximately 4 km². It is estimated that the Husab Project could contribute 5% to Namibia’s Gross Domestic Product, 20% to the country’s exports and up to N$1.7-billion per year for government coffers. Husab has a potential mine-life of more

than 20 years, with uranium reserves estimated at 280 million tonnes. It is being developed as a large-scale load-and-haul open pit mine, feeding ore to a conventional agitated acid leach process plant and will use 39 haul trucks, with a payload of 327 tonnes each, as well as 4 front-end loaders, 3 rope shovels and 4 hydraulic face shovels. A loaded truck weighs about 570 tonnes and an estimated 680 million litres of diesel will be used across the mining operation over the life of mine. After twenty years, the Zone 1 pit will be approximately 3 km long, 1 km wide and 412 m deep, the company says. The Zone 2 pit will be about 2 km long, 1.3 km wide and 377 m deep. Each of the pits will be about the size of the adjacent Rössing Mine’s pit. It is estimated that Husab has the potential to produce 15 million pounds of uranium oxide (U3O8) per annum, more than the total current uranium production of Namibia. In comparison, the world’s largest uranium mine, McArthur River in Canada, can produce up to 18 million pounds per year.

Swakop Uranium understands that “No radioactive material may be disposed of at either Walvis Bay or Swakopmund waste centres” and says that “Controls will be in place to ensure that contaminated material does not leave the site.” Hazardous (toxic) waste that cannot be recycled will be managed as per the Waste Management Plan (EMP) and audits will be conducted on all activities during the construction phase to ensure compliance with the terms of the EMP, the company says. Noting that sulphuric acid, produced on site, imported or obtained from an off-site plant, will be used as the main processing chemical, Swakop Uranium said, “All hazardous waste, except radioactive waste, will be collected at the waste transition yard prior to packaging, as per the Walvis Bay Hazardous Site’s requirements before being transported to Walvis Bay.” The company notes that China General Nuclear Power Company’s (CGNPC) investment in Swakop Uranium is the biggest in Namibia since the country’s independence, and “by far the single biggest investment by Chi-

na in Africa”. It says more than US$100-million (N$1 billion) was spent to get the project to the construction phase and a further US$2-billion (N$20-billion) will be required to bring the project to fruition. State-owned Epangelo Mining Company holds a 10% stake, valued at N$1.8 billion in Swakop Uranium. Taurus Minerals Ltd of Hong Kong holds the majority 90% stake. Taurus in turn is owned by CGNPC Uranium Resources and the China-Africa Development Fund. Husab was previously owned by an Australia-based exploration company, Extract Resources. In April 2012 Taurus Minerals made a successful takeover bid for Extract Resources, by first launching a successful takeover bid for its majority shareholder, Kalahari Minerals plc, which owned 43% of Extract. In April Taurus followed up with a US$2.2 billion takeover of Extract. The new mine is located in the northernmost part of the protected Namib-Naukluft National Park, approximately 12 km south-west of Arandis.

Mathematics Congress huge success Marshallino Beukes

The 9th National Mathematics Congress took place in Swakopmund from 27 to 30 April and was attended by 225 mathematics teachers and educators from all regions of the country.

This annual event is organised with the support of the Ministry of Education and private sector sponsors. Its aim is to inspire and motivate mathematics teachers and expose them to new insights in mathematics teaching and learning. Dr Retha van Niekerk from the North-West University (South Africa), an internationally recognised expert and researcher in early childhood education, together with Ms Barbara Peters of UNAM, presented workshops on “measurement, space and shape” for the junior primary teachers. Ms Kerryn Vollmer,

a teacher educator from Cape Town, introduced teachers to teaching materials and approaches to develop algebraic thinking in senior primary and junior secondary learners. Mr Marc North from KwaZulu-Natal focused on financial mathematics for senior secondary learners. The inputs from the South African guest lecturers were supported by presentations of 14 local experts and teacher educators. At this occasion, Langer Heinrich Uranium (LHM) has once again reaffirmed its commitment towards Mathematics and Science develop-

ment in the country, when it donated N$190 000 toward the hosting of the Congress. LHM has been the main sponsor of the conference for the past six years. According to LHM’s Managing Director/General Manager, Simon Solomons, Mathematics, as one of the three fundamentals of education (reading, writing, and arithmetic), remains a key skill in the mining industry, especially in the uranium sector where it is used in all processes associated with the exploration and mining of the uranium ore.

FNB opened a new branch in Kuisebmond on Wednesday. The opening of the second branch in Walvis Bay brings significant relief to its clients and ending long hours of waiting at month-ends. The branch will be officially opened next week.

Oorskot van 13-jarige in Hentiesbaai gevind Marshallino Beukes

Die rustige gemeenskap van Hentiesbaai is in skok en ongeloof gedompel, nadat die oorskot van ‘n 13-jarige dogtertjie, Rachel Boois, Sondag in ‘n halfgeboude huis op die dorpie gevind is. Volgens adjunk Kommissaris Otilie Kashuupulwa is die graad 6 dogter se lewelose liggaam omstreeks 15:30 die namiddag ontdek en die polisie vermoed dat sy tussen Vrydag, 2 Mei en Sondag 4 Mei 2014 vermoor is. Sprake dat die dogtertjie ook verkrag is doen die rondte, maar kon egter nie bevestig word nie, aangesien

die nadoodse ondersoek dit, asook die oorsaak van haar dood sal uitklaar. Beriggewing dat sy moontlik verwurg is, kon nie deur die polisie bevestig word nie. Volgens bronne is die oorledene oorspronklik van Windhoek, maar het ten tye van haar dood by haar grootmoeder in Hentiesbaai gewoon. Teen gistermiddag

was geen arrestasie nog uitgevoer nie en polisie ondersoeke duur voort. Die oorskot is in Elandstraat in die Omdel woonbuurt van die dorp ontdek. Enigiemand wat oor moontlike inligting, wat tot die aankeer van Boois se moordenaar (s) kan lei beskik, word versoek om die naaste polisiekantoor te kontak.

Cassinga weekend crashes claims 13 lives The national road network experienced an influx of road activity as scores of people drove to various destinations for the Cassinga long weekend. The MVA Fund Call Centre recorded a total of 57 crashes, which claimed 13 lives in separate incidents over the past long weekend. Records at the MVA Fund Call Centre further reveal that nine of the deceased were passengers in the vehicles they were in, two were drivers and the status of the other two is not known. The fatalities have increased compared to eight recorded over the same period last year. Crashes declined by 14 and injuries went down by 13. A total of nine people perished at the crash scene and 3 succumbed to their injuries in hospital while one person died on the way to the hospital. Although there is a notable decline in crashes and injuries, more people continue to die in these crashes, this time on average four persons were killed in one crash, a regrettable reality that calls for more stringent measures and increased road safety interventions. Overloading and night driving are contributing factors to mass fatalities and vehicle owners are urged to refrain from this risky practice. The MVA Fund appeals to all road users to assume individual and collective responsibility

of a safe road network at all times. The MVA Fund as a key player in road safety will continue to create road safety awareness through targeted interventions in selected regions where road crashes are rifer, to mitigate probable loss of life on our roads. The interventions will also target the young, who mostly bear the brunt of these crashes. But all in all, we all have a responsibility to protect each other on the roads. An analysis of road crash data as recorded by the MVA Fund Call Centre (1-5 May 2014) is as follows; Crashes were reduced by 20%, injuries reduced by 12% and fatalities increased by 62%. More crashes occurred in the Khomas region with a record of 21(37%), Erongo11 (19%), Oshana 6 (11%) and Oshikoto region 5 (9%). No crashes were recorded from Zambezi, Ohangwena and Omusati region during the long weekend. Roll-overs and pedestrian-related crashes have continuously been the highest types of crashes. Seventeen or 30% of the total recorded crashes were a result of rollovers followed by pedestrian-related crashes (11 or 19%). Roll-over types of crashes are mostly attributed to

speed. Thursday recorded more crashes than other days, with 16 accidents. This could be because Thursday was a public holiday, and a good number of people travelled to different parts of the country. Saturday recorded 10 crashes, and only 8 were recorded on Monday. Seventeen crashes occurred between 16:0021:59, representing 30% of the total record. A total of 72 vehicles were involved in crashes during the Cassinga Holiday, of which 38 (53%) were sedans followed by 29 Pick-ups. Privately owned vehicles made up the highest number of crashes. A total record of 40, 8% were public transport vehicles and information on 19 others is not known. A total of 129 people were injured during the long weekend. More young people aged between 16 and 35 were injured in crashes. Forty nine people in the pre-mentioned age bracket sustained varying degrees of injuries. Passengers formed the majority of people injured in crashes, giving a total of 76 passengers. Ten drivers were also injured.The number of injured persons classified by gender show that the majority were male.

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?

- A peril to society or an advantage?

Madelaine Laubscher

Public opinion was sought on whether Facebook as a social media platform is good or bad for the communities.

The majority of people contacted rated it positively and negatively based on issues taken into consideration. “When it comes to relationships, Facebook has been cited for causing some of the marital problems and break-ups. However, the same platform has been an excellent marketing tool. Facebook connects people in various parts of the world. Others complained about the time that people now spend on the site rather than with their families. Some people also abuse the site to expose each other’s private matters and trading insults,” another commentator said. According to Information Space, since Facebook`s launch in 2004, it has grown and continues to grow at a mind boggling rate. It is the most

popular social networking site with 50% of the 900 million users logging in daily. However there are still people who do not use Facebook at all. The reasons why Facebook can be viewed as being bad is the fact that some users have become addicted and neglect other areas of their lives. However the good side of using Facebook is that you can easily get connected to friends. It takes two seconds to join a new site through Facebook Connect while it takes a good 10 minutes to connect to a contact using the other conventional methods. Facebook sends out reminders for upcoming events and birthdays. Almost everybody is on Facebook which makes it an incredible resource for businesses. Communication has been made easy.

Gross Barmen Hot Springs Resort to re-open

No to vandalism!

The amount of damaged road signs at the coast is becoming worrisome. How much does the municipality spend to have damaged signs repaired or replaced and who pays for this? We as community members should not just fold our arms and sit back in ignorance while this continues to

happen. It’s time we stand up and expose the vandals by naming and shaming them. Use your phone to take a picture when you catch them in the act so that they can be charged and be prosecuted.

E-cigarettes Madelaine Laubscher

The new smoking law will be active in Namibia from July 2014, in this regard, some shops have started selling electronic cigarettes better known as e-cigarettes. Critics say the e-cigarettes are not only overpriced but also a health hazards. However it is not banned in public areas. The namib times spoke to the Legal Advisor in the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS), Mr Joseph Siseho, who said “Smoking cigarettes containing tobacco is illegal in public areas as from 1July. The legislation does not specify whether e-cigarettes are allowed in public areas or not, but if it affects the nonsmokers then it would be considered unacceptable. e-cigarettes are not banned in public areas. However it may not be advertised as cigarettes imitating tobacco cigarettes. We are trying to stop the effects of second hand smoking.” According to PolicyMic, e-cigarettes are not just expensive, but also dangerous.“A New York Times feature discussed how the liquid nicotine capsules used to refill them can easily poison children and has a potential to explode.

Perhaps most potentially damning of all is recent data that suggests e-cigarettes can still cause cancer. A new study published in Clinical Cancer Research reveals that ecigarette vapour affects human bronchial cells in strikingly similar ways to regular cigarette smoke. It can do so by causing

mutations in gene expression, explains team member Avrum Spira, and the findings have prompted researchers to plan further investigation into whether affected bronchial cells will behave more like cancer cells in the future,” sources say. According to Howstuffworks, electronic cigarettes are an alternative method of consuming nicotine. “Manufacturers design e-cigarettes to look like regular cigarettes, containing no tobacco. Quality control is one of the main issues health experts have with e-cigarettes.

They argue that manufacturers may not disclose all of the chemical ingredients used in their products. It may be impossible for users to know what they are consuming. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) conducted a small study to analyze a sample of nicotine cartridges from two manufacturers. Cancer-causing compounds found in tobacco were also found in some e-cigarette cartridges. One of the toxins found was a toxic chemical used in antifreeze,” another source said. The Tobacco Products Control Act of 2010 came into effect on the 1 April 2014 and the affected establishments have three months to make the necessary changes before the deadline of 1 July 2014. The Minister of Health and Social Services, Dr Richard Kamwi said on March 13 that smoking in public spaces such as s hop ping malls, sport fields, schools, workplaces, restaurants, airport lounges and public transport will be a punishable offence in Namibia from July.





China considers building industrial Park at Walvis

It emerged this week that China is looking at ways of assisting Namibia in the establishment of an industrial park in Walvis Bay and Air Namibia is considering direct routes between China and Windhoek. China is already Namibia's largest export market; exports to China amounted to N$1.4 billion over the past year, up from N$939 million in 2011, says Ringo Abed, Namibia's newly appointed ambassador to China. Mineral and marine products make up the bulk of Namibia's exports to China. Non-industrial diamonds accounted for the second-most exported product in 2013. Uranium ore and concentrates have been the main export commodity over the past few years and this is expected to rise significantly as Husab uranium mine commences this week with production. Ambassador Abed indicated this week to a gathering of journalists in Beijing that talks regarding the establishment of an industrial park

at the harbour town of Walvis Bay are ongoing. He said the project would seek to improve Namibian companies' capacity to meet the local industries' demands for goods and services and would likely attract investors through large-scale manufacturing enterprises, including agricultural processing, solar power and energy generation, fisheries and mineral processing. The ambassador was quoted as saying that in view of the increasing number of travellers between China and Namibia, the embassy has proposed that Air Namibia introduce direct flights between Windhoek and Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. He believes that a direct flight route would enhance economic and cultural relationships between the countries

Consumers petition Coca Cola on controversial ingredient The world's largest beverage-maker, Coca-Cola, plans to remove a controversial ingredient from some of its brands by the end of 2014, following an online petition. Brominated vegetable oil, or BVO, is found in Coca-Cola fruit and sports drinks such as Fanta and Powerade.

Activists say an element of the additive, also found in flame retardants, could have negative health effects. The health concerns stem from the fact BVO contains bromide, which is found in brominated flame retardants. According to medical researchers, excessive consumption of soft drinks containing BVO has been linked to negative health effects, including reports of memory loss and skin and nerve problems. Rival Pepsi removed the chemical from its Gatorade sports drink in 2013 and planned to stop using it in the rest of its products. Pepsi uses the ingredient in its Mountain Dew and Amp Energy drinks.

Financially-savvy married couples

Marriage affords spouses the potential of combining their income and sharing household responsibilities. This means married couples may be more likely to qualify for a home loan and enter the Namibian property market, purchase a car or two, or save for a holiday with the children. The array of credit options available today, however, requires that married couples carefully focus on their financial needs and then plan accordingly. “With the level of household debt at high levels, as recently pointed out by the Bank of Namibia, both spouses need to exercise financial discipline and make major financial decisions together as a team, as their individual spending habits can affect their joint estate. Loans and debts caused by one spouse can affect the couple's joint estate, but this depends on the type of marital regime they are married under. If they are married 'in community of property', the joint estate is held liable for any debts incurred by any spouse, but if they are married 'out of community of property', the spouse responsible for incurring the debt is the one held liable”, said Anton Smit, Executive Officer: Credit at Bank Windhoek. “In practice though, regardless of which marital regime applies, financially savvy spouses would take care not to become heavily indebted, and assist each other to manage their finances prudently”, added Smit. Financial over-indebtedness may cause unnecessary strain on a marriage and, in certain cases, may even lead to divorce. A divorce could further add to the financial woes with assets being divided (equally or not), legal fees, and maintenance costs of children to name but a few. Financially savvy spouses therefore communicate and express their concerns about wasteful expenditure, cut back on unnecessary spending, and prioritize the careful management of their financial obligations together. Drawing up a household budget is thus key and contributions from all members of the family, including children, will go a long way in becoming financially independent. “Each household budget will differ from family to family, and will depend on the lifestyle of each family. The budget must work for you and your family and include all expenses from groceries, water and electricity bills, to clothing, eating out at restaurants, and vehicle maintenance. Provision should also be made for unexpected expenses and increases in interest rates on house mortgage, vehicle payments, food prices and fuel price increases”, concluded Smit.

Anri Jacobs This amazing duo has been gracing stages and wowing the audience with its melodious voices since they met and were crowned Trustco's Star Performer in 2013. Immediately they clicked. After touring Namibia searching for talent they wrote Woestynroos in the tour bus and later recorded in Pretoria. Lize Ehlers is a celebrated Namibian singer/ songwriter and a 9-time Namibian Music Awards Nominee for her independent albums Fairy Circle Love (2011) African Cleavage (2012) single Uyelele (2013) Best Live Performer & Best Single Non Album Woestynroos (2014). However for Andries this was his first year in the NAMAs. Andries Hendrik Potgieter is a talented young South African man who has left his mark on the South African music industry and has recorded with some of the biggest names in that country. These include two time Grammy-winners, Soweto Gospel Choir and Steve Hofmeyr. His voice has also been heard on international platforms where he vowed audiences in Disneyland, New York, Atlanta and Namibia. Woestynroos got the duo nomination at the NAMAs for Best Single Non Album. Lize said it was thrilling to be nominated. The duo was very excited to be a part of the NAMAs this year and Lize shared that the expectation to receive a world class show was met. When asked about the making of Woestynroos, Lize said, “Our passion for our partners, our understanding of the Afrikaans language and the poetry of desert roses and the fact that we wanted our individual sounds to fuse and work made Woestynroos what it is.” She said the song means a lot to the duo and provides the opportunity to talk about love and everything that comes with it, the formation of the desert rose, the formation of love and the truth of commitment. Andries Hendrik has five

albums under his belt and is working hard on another three will be released during 2014. He is also the artist that has been chosen by the FAK (cultural organization) to record an album with FAK songs that are older than 75 years. Andries Hendrik and producer, Dirk van Niekerk, reworked the old songs such as 'Sarie Marais' and 'Die Alibama' so that youngsters would also like to listen to these 'older' songs. In 2011, he recorded the Stand as One album with South African Music Awards (SAMA) winner NedineBlom and Soweto Gospel Choir. He was also selected as the face and voice of Solidarity's Basta-album where he collaborated with singing icon, Steve Hofmeyr. Making his mark in South African music is however not where he stopped and he soon took his rich music culture from Africa and shared it with the world. In June 2012, he was invited to perform in the USA at a major entertainment event, held biannually in Florida. The vibrant performance which included a remix of Vicky Samson's 'My African Dream' and Johannes Kerkorrel's 'Halala' amongst others had the American audience on their feet. Andries Hendrik described the performance, “Performing on stage in my native tongue, Afrikaans, with the African drums thundering over the speakers, was one of the best experiences of my life as a performer.”The performance definitely made an impression and led him into the international spotlight and his first recording on American soil, with a duet named Halfway around the World. The song was written and produced by Grammy-award winning producer, Nate Butler at Icon Studios in Atlanta

and so far 45 million records have been sold worldwide. In 2013 Andries Hendrik featured as a judge on the first talent search in Namibia. Trustco's Star Performer included a 30-episode television series that was broadcast on NBC where he met the beautiful Lize. Lize-Leandra Ann Ehlers better known as Lize Ehlers is a Namibian singer who has won artist of the month awards and was nominated as the Namibian Ambassador of the Arts in 2013 and is the recipient of the top 5 Standard Bank Woman of Excellence Award. With various collaborative performances with S.A world and jazz heroes like Jimmy Dludlu and SolaeloSelota, Lize has shared stages with Zaharah and Simphiwe Dana and recently proudly represented Namibia at South Africa's Afriganza and performed Woestynroos

with Andries-Hendrik Potgieter to a live and TV audience of over 13 Million. Lize told namib times that her first performance was when she sang at a teachers' school concert at the age of three and at church at the same age. She continued, “Music kept the family smiling and laughing and grooving. My mother made me sing before I could even read. My late parents had great influence in my life musically and I am forever grateful that I was taught how to sing and perform and share. It is the thread in my home and career. It truly puts everything into perspective and relieves all pain and describes all moods,” she describes how music makes her feel. Commenting on AdriesHendrik's creativity she said, Andries-Hendrik has branched into so many forms of incredible

creativity from being an author to a model, designer, to a very successful scout and businessman. Lize is however not only a singer. As recipient of the Best Actress Award in Namibia 2007 2008, Lize works in various forms of art. She hosted UB40 Concerts in Namibia in 2011. “Andries and I are planning singing workshops to catapult singers to a new standard in Namibia and to show singers how to think big. Lize and Andries's fans can look forward to Andries's Fashion Career as model and designer of Fleaq Andries is fresh from the New York Fashion Week runway and South African Fashion Week Runway. “It is more than two countries coming together. It is two strangers becoming friends and colleagues based on respect, honour and creativity. What can be better?” she asked.

GWM introduces extended

warranties and service plans

GWM South Africa has announced the extension of its warranties, as well as the introduction of new service plans on selected vehicles to

offer customers additional peace of mind and support. Says Warren Olsen, Chief Operating Officer of GWM

South Africa: “Purchasing a new vehicle is a major financial commitment, and everyone wants the reassurance that their manufacturer will be there for

them should the unforeseen occur. In addition, service plans enable the customer to breathe a little easier around their vehicles'

scheduled services, and are likely to ensure that vehicles get serviced at the prescribed intervals, facilitating optimal functioning.” He adds: “The move to extend our warranties and introduce service plans therefore shows GWM customers that we have the utmost faith in our vehicles, enough to make this investment, and that we are dedicated, more than ever, to giving our customers the after-sales support they so rightly deserve.”

Extended warranty period

Going forward, GWM customers who purchase a new GWM vehicle - with the exception of Steed Single Cabs will be covered by a 5-year/100 000 km warranty (the warranty has been extended by two years). All Steed Single Cab models will be sold with the current 3-year/100 000 km warranty.

Service plans with selected new GWM vehicles

A 5-year/45 000 km service plan will be standard with the GWM C20R compact hatch, as well as the GWM M4 mini-SUV and GWM C30 sedan, both intended for launch soon. The soon to be launched GWM C50 sedan and GWM H6 SUV will be available with a 5-year/60 000 km service plan. Service plans will not apply to GWM Steed Double or Single Cabs. With the extended warranty and service plans, GWM South Africa is proving to its customers that the brand is serious about its after-sales service and its future in South Africa. To keep GWM vehicles as good as new and owners as excited about the brand as the day they drove their GWM off the showroom floor, 76 dealers nationwide provide friendly and professional after-sales service, which includes the local dealership Pupkewitz GWM, with branches and service agents all over Namibia. Uwe Kessler, Dealer Principal at Pupkewitz GWM, Windhoek expressed his excitement of the addition of the service plans. “These service plans not only improves the value of the vehicles, but also gives customers peace of mind, as our number one concern are our customers.”

Nissan NAVARA is still Africa’s most powerful bakkie

• NAVARA continues to top power charts since launch • World-leading diesel and petrol engine best in class technology The Nissan NAVARA continues to top the power and torque charts in the South African bakkie market, standing its ground against fierce competition from newer rivals in recent years. Proving that NAVARA was way ahead of its time when it was originally introduced in 2005, its range of petrol and dieselpowered bakkies still offer the best performance. Product Marketing Manager at Nissan South Africa, Marinus Venter, comments: “The Nissan NAVARA was launched as a new-age bakkie with class-leading technology and refinement and today

it continues to lead from the front in several aspects of design, engineering, style, purpose and technology. The fact that it is still proving a popular choice in 2014 shows just how innovative and engaging the NAVARA continues to be. It is a great embodiment of our ‘Innovation that Excites’ ethos. “This excitement is pro-vided courtesy of the pickup’s petrol and diesel V6 engines in particular, ensuring NAVARA continues to be the bakkie to beat in South Africa.” 4.0-litre V6 petrol means business The smooth and meaty 4.0-litre V6 petrol engine fitted to the Nissan NAVARA LE includes advanced design features like Electronic Throttle Control with secondary mapping in 4LO mode (in the 4x4 model), Continuous Valve Timing Control (C-VTC), Nissan

Variable Induction Control System (NICS), a silent timing chain, micro-finished camshaft and crankshaft surfaces, molybdenum-coated pistons, a resin intake manifold, a digital knock control system, highcapacity muffler and a lightweight aluminium block. Nissan produces more than one million V6 engines each year making it the largest manufacturer of V6 engines in the world. The VQ series found in NAVARA has been ranked among the ten best engines in the world for the last fourteen years, and is related to the earth-shattering twinturbocharged V6 engine which powers the famous Nissan GT-R. V9X diesel V6 tops diesel charts Developed to deliver high levels of performance with outstanding fuel

efficiency, competitive emissions and classleading refinement, the 3.0-litre turbocharged common rail diesel motor fitted to the range-topping NAVARA 3.0 dCi 4x4 LE astounds with its 170 kW and class-leading 550 Nm – making the NAVARA the only one-ton pickup vehicle in South Africa to feature a diesel V6 engine. The torque is available from as low as 1 700 rpm and pulls consistently all the way to 2 500 rpm, 500 Nm of which is available from as low as 1 500 rpm. Idle speed is low at 650 rpm, with the usual NVH connotations associated with diesel engines nonexistent. The results are strong low-end performance with comfortably refined power delivery and exceptional throttle response. Flipping over the coin, the strong diesel performance

bestows the Nissan NAVARA 3.0 dCi 4x4 LE with a towing capacity of 3 000 kg. Key to its smoothness and responsiveness, a veeangle of 65 degrees and construction from Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) ensures the benefits of a cast iron block - including high levels of stiffness and noise absorption - are maintained, but without the weight penalty. Although CGI is heavier than pure alloy construction, stiffening ribs and extra sounddeadening material are no longer necessary, contributing to a comparatively modest weight gain. The class-leading torque and highly competitive specific power outputs are delivered thanks to the adoption of a comparatively large single turbocharger which is mounted within the vee

of the engine, an intercooler, and the use of latest-generation Bosch common-rail fuel injection which incorporates piezo injectors operating at 1 800 bar. This combination of engine refinement, highend packaging, excellent specifications and a ’go anywhere, do anything’

attitude to life is what carries the Nissan NAVARA forward - still Africa’s most powerful bakkie. For More Information: Louis Langford, General Manager, Pupkewitz Nissan, Tel +264 61 2916800 nissanwhkdp@

An der Atlantikküste,in der Namibwüste Worte der Woche Nachrichten der Swakopmund Residents Association

Swakopmund (sk) Die Jahreshauptversammlung der Swakopmund Residents Association am 29. April war sehr gut besucht. Die folgenden Komiteemitglieder sind gewählt worden: Holger Ahrens – Vorsitzender; Lutz Hecht – Vize-Vorsitzender; Peter Steinkopff – Schatzmeister; Margit

waltung gerichtet, in dem sie ihren Unmut über den Verfall dieser architektonischen Schmuckstücke äußerten. Eine gute Nachricht ist die Tatsache, dass bei der letzten Ratssitzung für die Renovierung der städtischen Gebäude ein Betrag von N$ 19,5 Millionen gebilligt wurde. Somit

bittet die Verkehrsabteilung darum, diesbezüglich streng durchzugreifen. Nach einer sechsmonatigen Verzögerung sind die Finanzen der SAIM SA (Southern African Inter-Municipal Sports Association)-Spiele, die im September letzten Jahres abgehalten wurden, publik gemacht worden. Die

ein unakzeptabler Verlust von N$ 1 111 563,84. Ein immenser Geldbetrag ist somit durch Misswirtschaft zum Fenster hinausgeworfen worden. Das hat Bürgermeister Juuso Kambueshe sehr verstimmt, und er hat sich persönlich dazu verpflichtet, das Organisationskomitee der Stadtverwaltungsspiele neu zu gestalten, um solch einen gravierenden Fehler nicht zu wiederholen. Es sollte an diesem Punkt erwähnt werden, dass Ratsherr Peter Steinkopff sich von Anfang an gegen das Projekt, ausgesprochen hatte, das in einem finanziellen Desaster endete. Der Bürgermeister lobte die stetige Anwesenheit der S.R.A.-Komiteemitglieder bei den monatlichen Ratssitzungen. Auch würdigte er die konstruktive Kritik der S.R.A. Das Komitee der S.R.A. dankt Bürgermeister Kambueshe herzlich dafür. Eingesandt (Übersetzung von Susann Kinghorn)

Vom vierten Stock steigst du herunter, trittst auf die Straße, noch ganz munter. Doch plötzlich fragst du dich verdrossen: "Hab ich auch oben abgeschlossen?" Du kannst dir selber nicht mehr trau'n und steigst hinauf, um nachzuschau'n. Und sagst - die Faust vor Zorn geballt: "So fängt es an. Mensch, du wirst alt." Du brauchst was aus dem Küchenschrank. Du weißt auch, was. Na, Gott sei Dank. Du öffnest ganz gezielt die Tür und fragst dich prompt: "Was wollt' ich hier?" Nun grübelst du. Dich packt der Frust, denn gerade hast du's noch gewusst. Und so was lässt dich nicht mehr kalt. So fängt es an. Mensch, du wirst alt. Bevor man eine Reise tut, versteckt man erst sein Sparbuch gut. Man ist ja länger nicht zu Haus und das Versteck kriegt keiner raus. Kommt man zurück, geht' s Suchen los: "Wo habe ich mein Sparbuch bloß?" Warum ich so was nie behalt?! So fängt es an. Mensch, du wirst alt. Du sitzt im Zug. Du bist auf Reisen. Da fällt Dir ein: Das Bügeleisen!!! Von Urlaubsfreuden schon beflügelt, hast Du noch schnell ein Hemd gebügelt. Nun denkst du ständig an zu Haus: "Mein Gott, ist der Stecker auch raus?” Zwingst dich zur Ruhe, mit Gewalt! So fängt es an. Mensch, du wirst alt. Zum Frühstück nimmst du drei Tabletten. Sie sollen dein Gedächtnis retten. Du fragst dich plötzlich ganz benommen: "Hab' ich sie wirklich eingenommen?” Und schluckt man sie, du hast's vergessen, stets vor dem oder nach dem Essen? Du weißt nicht, welche Vorschrift galt. So fängt es an. Mensch, du wirst alt. Du bist es leid und legst im Nu, dir ein Tablettenkästchen zu. Unter den Fächern - keine Frage, steh'n säuberlich die Wochentage. Am anderen Morgen denkst du nach: "Was hab'n wir heute - Donnerstag?" Du schmeißt das Kästchen, dass es knallt. So fängt es an. Mensch, du wirst alt. Du siehst nicht gut! Der Arzt kommt drauf und schreibt Dir Augentropfen auf. Alle vier Stunden sollst du nun, die Tropfen in die Augen tun. Doch jedes mal - es tut dir leid vergisst du die genaue Zeit. Völlig verzweifelt sagst du bald: So fängt es an. Mensch, du wirst alt. Du kaufst dir – so was gibt es schon 'ne Armbanduhr mit Weckfunktion. Du freust dich, nun ist alles klar, sie piept auch pünktlich, wunderbar! Doch schaust du sinnend auf die Uhr und fragst dich: "Warum piept die nur?" Sie piept, wie aus dem Hinterhalt. So fängt es an. Mensch, du wirst alt.

To Charmaine Ramothibe & children It’s the little things, the small everyday occurrences that you’ll remember.. The laughs, the stories, the smiles and even though it seems like you can never recover from the loss it is the very memories that will help push away and bring back the smiles.

JOHANNES 14:1-6 Laat julle harte nie onsteld word nie, glo in God, glo ook in My. In die huis van My Vader is daar baie wonings, as dit nie so was nie, sou Ek vir julle gesé het. Ek gaan om vir julle plek voor te berei. En as ek gaan en vir julle plek berei het, kom Ek weer en sal julle na My toe neem, sodat julle ook kan wees waar Ek is. En waar Ek heengaan, weet julle en die weg ken julle. Thomas sé vir Hom: Here ons weet nie waar U gaan nie, en hoe kan ons die weg ken? Jesus antwoord hom: Ek is die weg en die waarheid en die lewe, niemand kom na My Vader behalwe deur My nie. Jou teenwoordigheid sal in ewigheid gemis word Baie liefde vir ALTYD en VEREWIG ~LEROY, GAIL en KENYA~

Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us everyday... Unseen, unheard, but always near... Still Loved, Still Missed Best Husband and Father in the WORLD! ~CHARMAINE, CLARENCE, CONCHITA~

No farewell words were spoken, No time to say goodbye, You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. Our hearts aches in sadness, And secret tears flow. What it meant to loose you, No one will EVER know LOVE YOU ALWAYS DADDY!!! ~RAYMONDY, GEORGE, SKYLER & MILANIA~

God saw the road was getting rough, and hills were hard to climb He closed your weary eyelids and whispered “ peace, be thine” It broke our hearts to loose you so soon but you didn't go alone, Part of us went with you the day God called you Home... ~LOVE, MARLON, SUEL-ANNE, LEANDRO & SIMONE~
