  • 04/26/17--16:00: Simon Junior makes his debut
  • Simon Junior makes his debutSimon Junior makes his debut Next week's boxing bonanza organised by Salute Boxing Academy at the Country Club in Windhoek promises to be an entertaining affair as new talents come to the fore to show off their punching power.

    Among the newcomers is Harry Simon Junior, son of former super welterweight champion Harry Simon. Simon Senior coaches his son and says he is a force to be reckoned with.

    “The guy is just 18 years old but he is a gifted boxer. I don't know if he will break my records but one does not know in boxing, so let's wait and see what he can do. He is also arrogant and that might help him in his fighting career,” he said.

    Simon Junior will meet the slightly more experienced Sam Shaama in a four-round fight that could make or break him as a fighter.

    The bonanza, which initially had only nine fights, will now feature 11 fights of which three are for national titles.

    Nathanael 'Natty' Kakolo says he is super-fit and ready for his fight against Dominicus Weyulu. The two will contend for the featherweight interim national title.

    “I'm ready, come and see the fight and see the best man win,” Kakolo said.

    Tickets can be bought at Computicket. General tickets cost N$100, VIP tickets N$200 and a table for ten N$7000.

    The full fight card is as follows:

    Bantamweight four rounds: Japhet Amukwa vs Frenkie Kativa

    Super flyweight four rounds: Immanuel Joseph vs Josef Matheus.

    Super lightweight six rounds: Sacky Amutjaa vs Rafael Iita

    Featherweight Six rounds: Tommy Nakashimba vs David Angula

    Swing bout: Harry Simon Junior (pro debut) vs Sam Shaama.

    Junior lightweight six rounds: Nathanael Sebastian vs Adrease Nghinaunye

    Super bantamweight 10 rounds national title: Jonas Matheus vs Julius Sheetheni

    Swing bout: Welterweight six rounds: Kapena Naindjala vs Christian Uukelo

    Junior middleweight six rounds: Vakufilapo Nashivela vs Alpheus Shilongo

    Junior lightweight 10 rounds national title: David Shinuna vs Immanuel Andeleki

    Featherweight interim national title 10 rounds: Nathanael Kakolo vs Dominicus Weyulu.

  • 04/26/17--16:00: Stars out of Debmarine Cup
  • Stars out of Debmarine CupStars out of Debmarine Cup Football fans will not be able to watch a match between African Stars and Life Fighters after the 'Reds' pulled out of the NFA Debmarine Cup tournament.

    The action resumes this weekend at Otjiwarongo as six clubs attempt to make it to the next round.

    African Stars, Blue Waters and Orlando Pirates have joined Black Africa, Tigers and Chief Santos, who last week failed to confirm their participation in the tournament.

    The clubs cited a lack of preparation and players as their reason for withdrawing from the competition.

    The six remaining clubs in the competition will play at Otjiwarongo.

    Outjo FC will come up against United Stars in an early kick-off at the Paresis Stadium on Saturday at 11:00.

    The match will be followed by Otjiwarongo FC against premier league side Young Africans at 13:00. That encounter is expected to draw a large number of local supporters.

    The final match of the day will be between Mighty Gunners and Citizens FC fighting for the final spot in the Round of 16. The match will begin at 15:00 with local supporters expected to cheer for Mighty Gunners.

    The 'men in uniform' are likely to produce an emphatic display given that they will have the home-ground advantage.

    Citizens FC will be comforted by the fact that they have made it to the final of the NFA Cup competition before.

    Gendev FC, Rundu Chiefs and Life Fighters automatically qualified for the Round of 16 after their opponents - Orlando Pirates, Blue Waters and African Stars - pulled out.

    Young Beauties, Unam, Young Chiefs, Eleven Arrows, Touch & Go, Tura Magic, Civics, Bee Bob Brothers, Gendev, Life Fighters, Rundu Chiefs, Eastern Chiefs and Try Again are already in the draw for the next exciting chapter of the 2017 Debmarine Namibia Cup.

    Tickets are selling for N$30 at Computicket at Shoprite and Checkers countrywide.

  • 04/26/17--16:00: NSC allocates funds
  • NSC allocates fundsNSC allocates fundsNSC allocates funds The Namibia Football Association's (NFA) international participation budget has been reduced from close to N$10 million to N$3.3 million this year. The Namibia Sports Commission (NSC) yesterday announced the allocation of funds to all its affiliated sport codes.

    Codes in category A will each receive N$50 000, category B N$30 000, and category C N$15 000 for administration.

    The category A codes are athletics, cricket, football, boxing, rugby, hockey and volleyball.

    The A codes will get an additional international participation grant. Football will get N$3.3 million, while athletics, boxing, netball and cricket will receive N$150 000 for international competitions.

    Volleyball and hockey will receive N$100 000 each for international competitions, while N$500 000 has been allocated to rugby.

    N$890 000 will be allocated to category B and C sports for international participation. That money will remain with the NSC and the codes will have to request money every time they plan to participate in international competitions.

    NSC chief administrator Simataa Mwiya said: “As we all know our budget has been reduced from N$38 million to N$21.6 million. This has forced us to allocate the funds in the way we did.

    “We do not know if we are going to survive the whole year, and therefore we urge all stakeholders to try and find other means to source funds.

    “Thirty percent of the money that was allocated to us by the ministry of sport will stay with the commission for its operations.”

    Fifty-six sport federations and four umbrella bodies are affiliated to the NSC.

    A percentage of funds from the NSC's budget will be allocated to the umbrella bodies.

    Mwiya said although the NSC had allocated the funds, the commission was not in possession of the full N$21.6 million granted by the government. Therefore, money would be disbursed to the lower categories before the category A codes would receive their funds.

  • 04/26/17--16:00: Haitope to compete in Prague
  • Haitope to compete in PragueHaitope to compete in Prague Namibian long-distance runner Lavinia Haitope is hard at work preparing for her first trip to Europe to compete in the Prague International Marathon on 7 May.

    The marathon, also known as the Volkswagen Prague Marathon, has been held in the city of Prague in the Czech Republic since 1995.

    The event was awarded the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) gold label status.

    Haitope said she was looking forward to competing at the event and hoped to improve her time ahead of the IAAF World Athletics Championships to be held in London from 5 to 13 August this year.

    Haitope, who is aiming for a top-10 finish, told Nampa that she had spent N$18 000 on flight tickets, visa and insurance and called on the corporate world and individuals to help more athletes realise their dreams of competing at international events.

    Her coach, Tobias Hiskia, said with an improved support system the athlete could do better.

    Hiskia said their aim was to improve her running times and her participation in Prague was a step in the right direction, although costly.

    Haitope and two other marathon runners - Beata Naigambo and Helalia Johannes – are the only Namibians who have qualified for the World Athletics Championships.

  • 04/26/17--16:00: United drumbeat echoes
  • United drumbeat echoesUnited drumbeat echoesManchester derby excites coaches The city of Manchester is painted red and blue today as two English premier league clubs battle for a place in the top four. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has an opportunity to score a seismic victory over his old foe Pep Guardiola when his side visit misfiring Manchester City tonight.

    Guardiola oversaw a one-sided 2-1 win when he and Mourinho resumed hostilities in September - each at the helm of a new club - and was generally felt to have made a bigger impact than the Portuguese in the season's early months.

    But having been condemned to a trophy-free first season at City by Sunday's FA Cup semi-final loss to Arsenal, Guardiola will lose his hold on a top-four place if United prevail at the Etihad Stadium.

    “It is going to be the game of the season,” predicted United's Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera.

    “We are one point behind them. If we win we have the chance to finish in the top four. If they win, it is going to be very difficult.

    “Is it make-or-break? Probably. Both teams are in a good moment so if one of us wins the game we are not going to lose a lot of games or make mistakes after that. Us or them. It is going to be key.”

    Mourinho, Guardiola's bete noire during their time in Spain, has played down Herrera's remarks, telling Sky Sports: “He says that because I always say that about the next match.”

    But the United manager will know that victory would give United the edge over City in the quest for Champions League qualification.

    United have struggled for fluency this season, drawing no fewer than 12 games, and spent four months grimly locked in sixth place in the table.

    As the days grow longer, however, the prospects of a successful end to the season appear to be getting brighter.

    United have already won the League Cup, face Celta Vigo in the semi-finals of the Europa League and showed in their stunning 2-0 ambush of league leaders Chelsea that they are a match for anyone.

    Avoid defeat on Thursday and they will equal the club's record for the longest unbeaten run in a top-flight season - a 24-game sequence enjoyed in 2010-11 by a United team who finished as champions.

    Fatigue aside, the only other dark cloud on United's horizon is injuries.

    Marcos Rojo and top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic have both been ruled out for the rest of the season with knee ligament damage, while Paul Pogba was forced off during Sunday's 2-0 win at Burnley.

    Despite Mourinho's entreaties for them to play through the pain barrier, centre-backs Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are both expected to miss out again, along with Juan Mata.

    Mata scored the winner when the teams met in the League Cup fourth round in October.

    Ibrahimovic's injury, meanwhile, has opened the door for Marcus Rashford, who netted the game's only goal when United last visited the Etihad in March 2016.

    Anthony Martial will hope to start after scoring one goal and making the other for Wayne Rooney at Burnley.

    Guardiola is praying key duo David Silva and Sergio Aguero will be fit after both were substituted during the 2-1 loss to Arsenal at Wembley due to a hamstring injury and a dead leg respectively.

    John Stones, Bacary Sagna and Fernandinho are also injury doubts, while it is not clear what role - if any - Gabriel Jesus might be able to play following his return from a broken foot.

    Securing a top-four finish is Guardiola's last chance of salvaging something from his first season in England and midfielder Yaya Toure knows his side face a battle.

    “It is going to be difficult. It is very tight,” said the Ivorian.

    “United are doing well, Arsenal are going to have confidence and Liverpool lost (against Crystal Palace), but it is not finished yet. This league is going to be very tough.

    “It is a very big game, an important game. We have to do the job and we will see what can happen.”

    Fleck wants increased intensityFleck wants increased intensity Stormers coach Robbie Fleck wants his team to lift their tempo and intensity when they face the Highlanders in their Super Rugby clash in Dunedin, New Zealand, tomorrow.

    Following the second defeat of their Super Rugby campaign this season, against the Crusaders in Christchurch, the Stormers will be looking to get back to winning ways in Otago.

    “Obviously we need to work on a few things from the loss on the weekend. We had a good discussion as a group and we will take the learning from the Crusaders game and move on.

    “The key learning from our side is that we haven't faced line speed like the Crusaders presented, where they really got off the line and put us under immense pressure.

    “You need to be strong set-piece wise playing over here, but the key for us is to match that intensity and that tempo that the Kiwi sides play at,” Fleck said.

    The Stormers coach knows it will not be easy against a quality Highlanders side playing on home turf, but says his team will give it everything in an effort to lift their game.

    The Stormers were boosted this week by the availability of fullback SP Marais, who has recovered from a groin injury, and captain Siya Kolisi, who was rested last week due to the Springbok management plan.

    F1 to ditch 'halo' protection deviceF1 to ditch 'halo' protection device Formula One is set to abandon plans for a 'halo' head protection system in favour of a transparent screen that could be introduced for 2018.

    The governing International Automobile Federation (FIA) announced the development following a meeting of the sport's Strategy Group in Paris on Tuesday ahead of this weekend's Russian Grand Prix.

    “A number of more integrated solutions for additional frontal protection have been studied, and the decision has been taken to give priority to the transparent shield family of systems,” it said in a statement.

    “The FIA aims to carry out track tests of this system during this season in preparation for implementation in 2018.”

    The 'halo' cockpit protection device, which is fixed at three points including a central pillar in front of the driver that supports a protective loop above his head, was extensively tested last season with a mixed response.

    The FIA said in January the net safety benefit had been established but a decision needed to be made about the aesthetics and whether such a system was right for Formula One.

    Cockpit protection has become a priority since the deaths of drivers in other series after being hit by wheels and flying debris.

    The shield, a see-through screen in front of the driver that does not cover the cockpit, was tested in practice for this year's Chinese Grand Prix.

    Decisions made at the Strategy Group have to be approved by the FIA's World Motor Sport Council, which is usually a formality.

    Tuesday's meeting also agreed changes to the 2018 regulations that will lead to the disappearance of the current 'T-wing' and 'Shark Fina' aerodynamic devices that have also been criticised on aesthetics grounds.

    Measures will also be taken to ensure that oil will not be used as fuel.

    The Strategy Group, which is currently limited to top teams, will also be opened to non-members.

    The governing body said this would demonstrate “the effective commitment of both the FIA and the commercial rights holder to improve transparency in the sport.”

  • 04/26/17--16:00: Ten Cate turns down job
  • Ten Cate turns down jobTen Cate turns down jobNetherlands continues coach search It appears that it will take a bit longer before the Netherlands' national team gets a new coach. The search for a new Netherlands coach after the sacking of Danny Blind appeared in further disarray Wednesday as Henk ten Cate revealed he had turned the job down.

    Ten Cate, the current trainer of UAE's Al Jazira, told the Dutch daily De Telegraaf: “I was offered the job on Monday. But in the end I decided not to do it.

    “If you accept such a responsible job - to me the most honourable in Dutch football - it is essential that the whole organisation is behind it, or it will not be a success,” he told the paper.

    At the weekend, he revealed that he had long talks Saturday in an Abu Dhabi hotel with Hans van Breukelen, the technical director of the Dutch football federation (KNVB).

    Blind was sacked as Netherlands coach on March 26 after a 2-0 defeat to Bulgaria that left the team's chances of reaching the World Cup finals hanging by the slenderest of threads.

    The loss in Sofia put the Dutch in fourth place in qualifying Group A, trailing six points behind leaders France.

    The Netherlands, three times the World Cup runners-up, also failed to qualify for the Euro 2016.

    Ten Cate, 62, a former manager for Amsterdam Ajax and Greek team Panathinaikos, said he believed the Dutch could “still qualify for the World Cup in Russia.” The next qualifying match is on 9 June against Luxembourg.

    And he wished Van Breukelen “every success in his quest for a new coach.”

    Breukelen said Tuesday that he hoped to present the new coach in the next few days. He is also said to be in talks with Dick Advocaat, 69, the current coach of Istanbul's Fenerbahce.

    The Dutch national team is facing two coming friendlies, against Morocco on 31 May and the Ivory Coast on 4 June.

  • 04/26/17--16:00: Local legend Indongo
  • Local legend IndongoLocal legend IndongoToyota equals reliability, affordability and quality Possibly one of Namibia’s most loved brands, Toyota continues to excel and Indongo Toyota is proud to be part of the value of the brand name. What started out as a very small Toyota dealership in Namibia has grown into a formidable dealership grouping in Namibia. Indongo Toyota, with its three dealerships, one in Windhoek, Walvis Bay and Okahandja, is a leading automotive retailer which has built its reputation by focusing on customer service and quality.

    The dealership was founded by the business stalwart Frans ‘Aupa’ Indongo and has secured a large chunk of the Toyota business in Namibia using their business strength which lies in their knowledge of the local market.

    Indongo Toyota currently consists has the three branches in Windhoek, Walvis Bay, Okahandja and there is also ‘Hino’. The new Ongwediva dealership will be opening its doors towards the middle of 2017.

    Not only is the dealership making strides in the motor vehicle industry in Namibia, they take their social awareness projects seriously. One of these projects includes creating road safety awareness on social media platforms to encourage customers to become safe road users.

    Eugene Junias, sales executive at Indongo Toyota sat down with Namibian Sun to speak about what the dealership offers, their road safety initiative and he offered some tips to road users on how to make the journey safer.

    According to Junias, at Toyota they strive for technology that prevents and minimises the damage of an accident in any situation. “What causes accidents? What can be done to prevent accidents? What mitigates the damage at accidents that have occurred? These are the questions to which we are constantly seeking answers. Our technologies will continue to advance toward the ultimate goal of making a vehicle that is safe for everybody,” he says.

    “Toyota's philosophy for active safety is to help guarantee the safety of vehicles and to help support drivers to prevent accidents. When driving a vehicle, the driver repeats a cycle of recognition, judgement and manoeuvring. Active safety supports this method of operation and its importance lies in helping to keep dangerous situations away. It is especially important to lower the risk of failing to recognise potential dangers, which is the cause of 70% of accidents,” says Junias.

    He further says that in addition, Toyota is utilising the most advanced technology to work to improve the three basic functions of a vehicle: Drive, turn and stop. “Toyota is striving to ensure the safety of all vehicles by evolving the vehicle movement control technology of vehicle stability control (VSC) and vehicle dynamic integrated management (VDIM).”

    Despite selling vehicles which provide comfort and safety, Indongo Toyota encourages and shares five tips for surviving on the long road.

    Safety first

    To avoid common causes of breakdowns, make sure your basics are in order. Book a service now to make sure you arrive at your destination in one piece and make sure your wheels, water, and oil are efficiency checked.

    Plan your route

    A road trip is all about the adventure of the journey, not just the destination. Enjoy the sights along the way. Be sure to stop every two hours or so for a rest and leg stretch.

    Keep the kids happy

    Pack activities to keep the kids entertained during the trip and during stops. Toys like skipping ropes and balls are great for rest stops as it gets them moving. Car games, like I-spy and 20 Questions, will also keep your kids giggling throughout the trip. If your drive is especially long, this might be a good time to invest in tablets loaded with games and educational activities.

    Pack smart

    Have an emergency kit handy packed with snacks, wet wipes and other useful items. According to experts, the unwritten rule to follow when packing your boot is to concentrate the weight as far forward as possible to reduce pressure over your back wheels.

    Stay charged

    Have a USB charger handy to keep your phone and GPS charged and ready to go. It's also very nifty for keeping your children’s portable devices charged.

    Other than that, Junias says keep within the speed limit, stay awake and sober and be courteous.

    Ricoh to introduce new productsRicoh to introduce new productsRicoh SA to help grow business in Namibia Canocopy has shown phenomenal growth and was named Ricoh South Africa’s business partner of the year in 2016. Ricoh has claimed it leads market share in the local market. STAFF REPORTER

    Ricoh South Africa has announced that plans to introduce new products into the Namibian market through Canocopy, the authorised distributor for Ricoh products and solutions in Namibia.

    Canocopy has shown phenomenal growth and was named Ricoh SA’s business partner of the year in 2016.

    Jacques van Wyk, chief operating officer of Ricoh SA, says together they plan to increase the exposure of Ricoh products and solutions to a range of new clients throughout Namibia.

    “I have never seen a business partner own a market like this one, they have an exceptional eye for marketing, for looking after customers, for winning business in their market.”

    Canocopy managing director Werner Lassen says for more than a decade the company aimed to stay ahead of its competitors and leverage its leading brands with superior service delivery.

    “In the modern digital world and through smart partnerships and business alignment, we are no longer merely just another copier company. We are a distinctive leader of print management solutions and a business enabler to our valued customers, old and new,” he says.

    “The synergies derived through the provisioning of world-class technologies, inclusive of print management and managed print services, firmly strengthen the positioning of Canocopy at the leading edge of managed technology services. Customers will now benefit from existing relationships and have exposure to a wide variety of additional services and products.

    “In the current economic climate, it is crucial to sustain the phenomenal growth of recent years. With our repositioning, we have gained direct access to a much wider client base and established business relationships, which will stimulate further growth,” he says.

    “The smart solutions designed and implemented by a highly experienced and competent merged solutions team, will also provide the customer with an integrated solution with a solid value proposition.

    “We’ve built strong relationships with our customers in Namibia, which is immensely important in every market but particularly here. We have a strong service ethic and some of the best technical people in the business. Our staff turnover track record speaks of the lengths we go to, to keep our valuable employees happy,” he says.

    “We have also focused on giving back to the community because business in Namibia is very much community based. As a result, we’ve been involved in charities, school donations and more.”

  • 04/26/17--16:00: AMTA preaches hygiene
  • AMTA preaches hygiene AMTA preaches hygiene Informal traders educated about cleanliness Street vendors are being taught about food safety and hygiene in order to protect public health. NAMPA

    The Agro-Marketing and Trade Agency (AMTA), in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), has educated street vendors in the north about the importance of food safety.

    Twenty-one informal traders were trained at the Rundu Fresh Produce Business Hub and 19 at the Ongwediva Fresh Produce Business Hub earlier this month.

    The training focused on topics such as food safety, quality and applicable laws; personal hygiene and cleaning and disinfection of food establishments.

    AMTA’s manager for food safety and standards, Salomon Tsanigab, says the objective of the National Food Safety Policy is to create awareness of food safety and hygiene procedures to be adopted by consumers, food business operators and street vendors in order to ensure food safety and quality at all times.

    The policy ensures that control standards are established and adhered to with regard to food production safety, food production hygiene, animal health and welfare, plant health and preventing the risk of contamination from external substances. The policy also lays down conditions for regulating appropriate labelling for food products.

    New abattoir operators identifiedNew abattoir operators identified Two local companies have been identified to run the government-owned abattoirs at Oshakati and Katima Mulilo.

    Without identifying the companies, agriculture minister John Mutorwa said: “The two companies submitted business plans that were insightful and attractive and were awarded the tenders.”

    He said it was just a question of finalising the paperwork before they could start.

    The tenders were advertised in local newspapers last year.

    Mutorwa was responding to a question from Sabine Mufenda, who represented the Kavango West Regional Farmers Union at a community meeting conducted by Vice-president Nickey Iyambo.

    Mufenda said markets for livestock had been non-existent and wanted to know what the government was doing to address the problem.

    She recommended that the Agro-Marketing and Trade Agency at Rundu be given the authority to enforce a cabinet directive that required all public tenderers in the Northern Communal Area (NCA) to source meat products from that area.

    Mufenda further asked whether internal veterinary fences could be erected in the NCA to prevent the spread of foot-and-mouth disease.

    Mutorwa said whether such fences were erected between villages, constituencies or regions in terms of the Animal Health Act, that authority was given to the minister of agriculture, which implied that it should be a straightforward matter.

    Such a development would, however, most likely lead to misunderstandings among community members.

    “There is nothing that prevents it by law but it must be the responsibility of leaders to thoroughly explain and educate the masses what erecting a livestock fence entails,” the minister said.

  • 04/26/17--16:00: 2017 Mining expo opens
  • 2017 Mining expo opens2017 Mining expo opensDiamond players display prowess with first diamond hub A diamond hub was introduced at this year's Chamber of Mines expo to entice investors to seek opportunities locally. The Namibia Diamond Trading Company, Namdeb, Debmarine and other players in the mining sector set the bar high with the introduction of the first coordinated diamond hub at this year's mining expo.

    Officially launching the Chamber of Mines of Namibia's mining expo, mines and energy minister Obeth Kandjoze said: “Although the concept of a diamond hub is not new to the diamond sector across the globe, it is, indeed, a new concept for Namibia.”

    According to him, the hub would create better opportunities for local diamond players.

    “The long-term benefits of a diamond hub are that it will contribute towards drawing attention to new investments from diamond technology companies, global cutting and polishing companies, and drawing investment from diamond buyers and services to support them.”

    Applauding the brains behind the hub, Kandjoze said: “What you have collectively achieved with the diamond hub is, indeed, in line with the government's vision for the establishment of a downstream diamond industry in a professional, socially responsible, commercially viable and sustainable manner that satisfies the aspirations of the government, the international diamond industry and other important key stakeholders.”

    He also commended efforts towards local value addition. “The government appreciates the fact that downstream beneficiation in Namibia can only be successful on the back of a successful tripartite partnership between the government, NDTC and the cutting and polishing industry.”

    The head of new established mining contractor BMI Namibia, Emile Smit, described the expo as the perfect platform to market his company. “It is a good opportunity for us to market ourselves. In terms of the marketing, it is a very good event. We are very excited about the local mining sector.”

    Namibia Rare Earths president Don Burton echoed Smit's sentiments, saying: “It is a very well-organised expo. There have been big improvements in its organisation. It will also give us an opportunity to meet with the various local service providers for our envisaged mining project.”

    The mining expo ends tomorrow.
