    Brave Gladiators off to CosafaBrave Gladiators off to Cosafa The fifth edition of the Cosafa Women's Champion will see its return in Zimbabwe in August after an eight-year hiatus.

    Frans Mbidi, the Namibia Football Association's president, confirmed that the Brave Gladiators would take part in the showpiece event from 24 August to 14 September in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. However, the Gladiators camp was not informed by NFA if they will compete in the competition, which is two months away.

    The Namibian women's national team has not taken part in any competition or games since last year March. Brave Gladiators defender Stacy Naris said it would be wonderful if they could compete in because it had been years since the team took part in Cosafa.

    Cosafa has 14 member countries namely Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. However, according Zimbabwean newspaper B–Metro only eight countries have confirmed participation but did not mention which ones accept that Zimbabwe will host the tournament.

    This will be the third time Zimbabwe is hosting the event, having hosted the tournament in 2002 and 2011. Zambia and Angola then played host in 2006 and 2008 before the tournament returned to Zimbabwe in 2011. The host always manage to reach the final and will host it as defending champions.

    South Africa enter the tournament as the most successful team, having won three of the past four editions, the 2002 win against Zimbabwe and a 3-1 win over Namibia and Angola in 2006 and 2006.

    The fifth edition of the Cosafa Women's Championship will be held in Bulawayo in the event that fewer teams take part. But if all 14 countries make the trip to Zimbabwe then Bulawayo and another city will co-host the tournament.

  • 05/31/17--16:00: Refs are unaffected by NPL
  • Refs are unaffected by NPLRefs are unaffected by NPLTop official gearing for CAF action Namibian match officials continue to work and attend courses even in the absence of top-flight football. The inactive Namibia Premier League has not affected the Namibia Football Association's referees as it has affected the players, Namibian Sun has established.

    There are currently about 140 officials registered with the football association's refereeing department.

    Some of these referees have been officiating matches in the Namibia Premier League over the seasons.

    The 2016/17 season did not kick off after the league failed to get a sponsor.

    Reports in the last months suggested that clubs and more than 450 players have been affected by the situation.

    However, referees continue to work hard in order to gain match officiating certificates.

    In fact, NFA administrator Absalom Goseb has emphasised the need to train and recruit more referees.

    In an exclusive interview yesterday Goseb said: “We as a referee's department have not felt the pinch yet.

    “There are still tournaments being played in the country and that is why our boys are still active.

    “Our initial schedule from January is going well and for that reason, we are happy at the moment.”

    “We want to develop more referees in the entire country so that we do not stress whenever the premier league starts again.

    “I would advise more people who aspire to become referees to choose this profession,” he said.

    The NFA yesterday reported that Namibian referee Dankie Shinana had left for Cairo, Egypt, for a refereeing course.

    The association's refereeing department will also host a course for the Omaheke Football League this weekend.

    Top professional referee Jackson Pavaza is also headed to Zambia where he will handle a CAF confederation tie between Zesco United and Recreativo do Lobolo on Sunday.

    Fellow Namibians Dawid Shaanika, Jonas Shongedi and Mathew Kanyanga will join Pavaza on the assignment.

    Nafpu loses another labour caseNafpu loses another labour caseNPL is not an employer of players The players' union has lost another labour case, this time for a recognition agreement with the Namibia Premier League. A legal bid by the Namibia Football Players' Union (Nafpu) for the Namibia Premier League (NPL) to recognise the union as the exclusive bargaining agent for players has failed.

    Arbitrator Alina Indombo of the Office of the Labour Commissioner dismissed the matter in a Labour Court ruling dated 29 May 2017.

    The arbitrator was required to rule whether or not there was an employer/employee relationship between the NPL and players.

    Indombo said she failed to understand how a registered trade union could seek a recognition agreement with the NPL, which was not an employer of footballers.

    “Consequently, I am in concurrence with the respondent's (NPL) argument that there is no employer/employee relationship between the parties and the applicant's representative in his submission has not objected to the issue of employer/employee relationship put before him,” said Indombo.

    In his submission, the applicant's representative, Nafpu secretary-general Olsen Kahiriri, argued that the union's members, and NPL footballers in general, rendered services to the NPL and were economically dependent on the monthly grant the NPL provided to clubs.

    Representative of the respondent, Joshua //Hoebeb, who is the NPL administrator, told the court that players signed contracts with their individual clubs and not with the NPL.

    //Hoebeb further stated that the players, through or with the assistance of the union, could refer any dispute to the labour commissioner citing individual clubs and not the NPL. The ruling is final and binding on both parties.

    In October last year, Nafpu took the Namibia Football Association (NFA) to the Labour Court on similar charges and lost the case after Commissioner Nicolas Mouers ruled that the union's request to engage the NFA in relation to players' outstanding payments by their clubs was irregular and non-procedural.

    The Executioner readies for GhanaThe Executioner readies for Ghana Namibia's WBO Africa middleweight champion, Walter 'The Executioner' Kautondokwa, will travel to Accra to defend his title against Obodei 'The Miracle' Sai of Ghana on 16 June.

    According to a press release issued by the MTC Nestor Sunshine Boxing and Fitness Academy, Kautondokwa can expect a tough title defence against the Ghanaian, who is the current WBO Africa Interim champion.

    The Executioner remains undefeated after 14 fights with an incredible knockout record of 13 fights. He remains dangerous and is considered one of the hardest punchers in the middleweight division by trainer Nestor Tobias.

    Kautondokwa started boxing in 2006 in Ondangwa and was promoted by Katutu Gideon. He came to Windhoek at the end of 2006, after hearing about the quality boxers in the capital. He began attending the Nampol Boxing Academy.

    In 2007 he was chosen to fight in the national championships in Keetmanshoop and won a gold medal. Kautondokwa also fought in Olympic qualification bouts in 2008.

    This will be Kautondokwa's first professional fight outside the country and it would therefore an interesting test to his character and confidence.

    “I'm excited about this fight against a very tough opponent. I knew there would come a time when I would have to fight outside the country, but I'm not worried or intimidated because I know that his grace is sufficient. I trained hard, have been in professional boxing for exactly four years now and I will come back undefeated,” Kautondokwa said.

    Sai is much more experienced, with 35 fights under his belt, 32 wins and only two losses, which make him a very dangerous opponent fighting on home soil.

    Kautondokwa is currently ranked number 10 while Sai is ranked number 12 by the World Boxing Organisation.

  • 05/31/17--16:00: The Lions have landed
  • The Lions have landedThe Lions have landed The British and Irish Lions arrived in New Zealand yesterday predicting a “cracking” series against the world champion All Blacks and hoping to avoid the controversies that marred their disastrous last tour 12 years ago.

    Tattooed Maori warriors performed a haka to greet the composite team of elite players from England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland, marking the start of the nearly six-week tour.

    The players then surprised their hosts by performing a stirring rendition of the Welsh hymn 'Calon Lan', in a response that won over the New Zealand public and media.

    Coach Warren Gatland said it was a sign of respect and showed the Lions - who have won only one Test series against the All Blacks in more than a century - were determined not to repeat the mistakes of their last visit in 2005.

    That tour ended in acrimony and a 3-0 'Blackwash' for the hosts as the Lions succumbed to infighting, intense pressure and a string of high-profile injuries.

    “We're well aware that there's a bit of bridge-building to do from 2005,” said Gatland, who is a New Zealander himself and earned 17 All Blacks caps from 1988 to 1991.

    “If we can win some hearts and minds off the field and play some good rugby, then hopefully we're going to end up with a cracking tour.”

    Gatland, who has described the New Zealand tour as the “ultimate challenge”, said he wanted to avoid off-field distractions.

    “I don't think any of us want any controversy to get in the way of what could potentially be a great Test series, let's get excited about that,” he said.

    The Lions face a gruelling 10-match schedule that includes three Tests and seven tour matches against New Zealand's top rugby teams.

    Former All Blacks and Lions coach Graham Henry has branded the itinerary “suicidal”, saying the Lions could be weakened by injury before they even face the All Blacks.

    Former England fly-half Stuart Barnes, a Lions tourist in 1993, said winning the Test series in such circumstances would be “epic”.

    “It would be the greatest achievement of Northern Hemisphere rugby, it would eclipse England winning the World Cup in Australia (in 2003),” he told Radio Sport yesterday.

    The Lions will face an All Blacks team who are back-to-back world champions and have held top spot on the international rankings since 2009.

    New Zealand underlined their recent dominance with a world-record equalling 18-Test winning streak in 2015-2016, and coach Steve Hansen said this week there was still “plenty of room” for improvement.

    A glimmer of hope for the Lions lies in Ireland's win over the All Blacks in Chicago last year, which ended the New Zealanders' winning run.

    Ireland lock Iain Henderson said the men in green “got under the All Blacks' skin” in their shock 40-29 win and the Lions will aim to do the same in New Zealand.

    Bookmakers are not confident such tactics will bring success, rating the Lions a 7/2 chance of winning the Test series while the All Blacks are 1/5.

    History also appears weighted against the tourists, who have won only one of 11 previous Test series contested in New Zealand, when the John Dawes-led Lions battled to a 2-1 victory in 1971.

    The Lions' overall Test record in New Zealand dating back to 1904 stands at six wins, three draws and 29 losses, a success rate of just 16 percent.

  • 05/31/17--16:00: Man United blossom
  • Man United blossomMan United blossomRanked as Europe's most valuable club The club has beaten Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea and many others on the KPMG list. Manchester United has been rated as Europe's most valuable club by a new report into the financial muscle of the continent's top teams.

    The report by professional services firm KPMG looked at the finances of 39 clubs based on their popularity on social media channels, revenues for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons, and success in European competitions.

    The clubs were then ranked by enterprise value, an accounting measure used to assess how much it would cost to buy any given club or company as it includes a business's total debt, with KPMG using its own formula to reach these valuations.

    Despite two relatively disappointing seasons on the pitch between 2014 and 2016, United's value surged clear of Real Madrid and Barcelona last year, becoming the first club to break the three billion euros (£2.7 billion, $3.4 billion) mark for enterprise value.

    Bayern Munich remains in fourth place, while Manchester City edge past Arsenal to take fifth spot, both with enterprise values of just under £1.7 billion.

    Chelsea, Liverpool, Juventus and Spurs fill the next four positions, which mean that six of the 10 are from the Premier League.

    In a statement, KPMG's global head of sports Andrea Sartori said: “The aggregate value of Europe's leading football clubs suggests that the overall value of football, as an industry, has grown.

    “While this is partially explained by football's broadcasting boom, the internationalisation of the clubs' commercial operations, their investment into privately owned and modern facilities and overall more sustainable management practices are also key reasons for this growth.

    “In terms of media rights value, the English Premier League sits comfortably at the top of European leagues, although other major leagues have outlined well-defined strategies to compete for the attention of global fans.”

  • 05/31/17--16:00: Lady spinsters
  • Lady spinstersLady spinstersWindhoek spin city up in smoke Local chicks show that they can burn rubber as well as the next (wo)man. The Women Rock Spin Show, held on the weekend, rocked Windhoek Spin City and sent it up in smoke. The show empowered women in the sport of spinning, to show that women can part take in this male-dominated, testosterone-laden industry.

    First local women spinner Evanka, aka Vakies, 19 years of age from Rehoboth wowed the crowd. Vankies has had a passion for spinning from when she was very young. She says she grew up changing tyres and oil with her father and this is what motivated her. She officially started spinning some three weeks ago when her cousin introduced her to Emmanual Driver, her teacher and coach, who by the way is also known as one of Windhoek’s superb spinners. Vakies says she feels good to be the first lady spinner and would like to thank the Windhoek Spin City staff for granting her the opportunity to show off her skills.

    International woman spinner Kylin, 16, who hails from Kimberly in South Africa’s Northern Cape, made second appearance in Namibia to inspire females to join the sport. “It is utterly amazing for me to be here on my second time, I love this vibe and everyone is so friendly,” said Kylin. She extended her thanks for all the support she has received, both here and at home and says she hopes to see more women in the game.

    The day was all about women as lady DJs featured, providing top-class entertainment for the show. DJ Alba,DJ Maggs, DJ Kiki, DJ Roxy and DJ Seboa entertained the drivers and crowd. Spinning teams showed off their monster rides and mad-ass skills. Yes, a smoked-up preparation day for all spinning teams was had and they were all preparing for the next big event… King of Spins 2017. For more info on all Windhoek Spin City events, interested parties can log on to their Facebook page, Windhoek Spin City, and you can be sure to be kept up to date.

  • 05/31/17--16:00: Latest NCAP tests
  • Latest NCAP testsLatest NCAP tests Yesterday, Euro NCAP released the test results and ratings of four new vehicles. The Mini Countryman and Škoda Kodiaq were both awarded a five-star rating. Nissan’s new Micra received four stars with standard equipment and five stars with the optional safety pack while the Suzuki Swift was rated as three stars as standard, and four stars with the optional safety equipment.

    All the vehicles reached the five-star level for adult occupant protection, child protection and pedestrian protection. The differences came in at the fitment of advanced driver assistance systems. The Škoda Kodiaq is equipped as standard with an AEB system that detects pedestrians as well as other cars. The Kodiaq’s five-star rating continues Škoda’s recent good form: All recently tested Škodas have been rated with five stars. The Mini has AEB car-to-car as standard and pedestrian detection as an option. Nissan put AEB pedestrian and lane assistance in the option pack (‘Euro NCAP 5* Pack’) for the Micra, nudging the four-star rating with standard equipment into five-star territory with the option pack fitted. Only the Suzuki Swift does not offer AEB pedestrian, with AEB car-to-car in its ‘Radar Brake Support’ option pack.

    Euro NCAP secretary-general, Michiel van Ratingen, said, “Euro NCAP started rewarding AEB pedestrian systems last year and we have seen a rapid uptake of the technology. We hope to see as fast an adoption of AEB systems that detect cyclists when tests of those systems form part of the rating next year. For 20 years, Euro NCAP has been pushing manufacturers to fit new and better safety technologies: Originally, such things as airbags and pre-tensioners and, nowadays, advanced driver assistance systems that will form the building blocks for the automated vehicles of tomorrow.”

    *The rating of vehicles is based on a vehicle with safety equipment which is standard across the whole model range. Euro NCAP allows manufacturers to have a second rating for a vehicle, indicating the safety offered with additional equipment sold as part of an option pack. To qualify, manufacturers must commit to selling at least 25% of cars fitted with the option pack in the first three years, and 55% of sales in the following three years.

    Italy must find other solutionItaly must find other solutionQuitting euro no answer to country’s woes The head of the Italian central bank has warned government to apply fiscal prudence and good governance to fix its financial woes. Leaving the euro zone would not help Italy solve its economic problems and the country should use a modest economic recovery to fix its public finances and cut debt, the head of its central bank said on Wednesday.

    Bank of Italy Governor Ignazio Visco took aim at Eurosceptic political parties who blame Italy's chronically slow growth on the constraints of euro zone fiscal rules and suggest leaving the single currency.

    "It is an illusion to think that Italy's economic problems could be solved more readily outside Economic and Monetary Union," Visco said in a speech to the Bank of Italy's annual assembly.

    The right-wing Northern League wants to pull Italy out of the euro zone and the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, which some opinion polls say is the most popular party, wants to hold a referendum on the issue.

    Elections are due within a year and may come as soon as this autumn.

    Visco said Italy must focus its energies on bringing down the huge public debt which is "a serious source of vulnerability which weighs on the country's economy."

    The debt, at around 132% of gross domestic product, is the highest in the euro zone after Greece's.

    Vietnam to sign deals for up to US$17bn in US goodsVietnam to sign deals for up to US$17bn in US goods Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said he would sign deals for US goods and services worth US$15 billion to US$17 billion during his visit to Washington, D.C., mainly for high technology products and for services.

    "Vietnam will increase the import of high technologies and services from the United States, and on the occasion of this visit, many important deals will be made," Phuc told a US Chamber of Commerce dinner.

    Phuc, who is due to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday at the end of a three-day visit to the United States, did not provide any further details of the transactions.

    GE Power CEO Steve Bolze told the dinner that General Electric Co will sign new business worth about US$6 billion with Vietnam, but also offered no details.

    Phuc's comments came after US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer expressed concern about the rapid growth of the US trade deficit with Vietnam, saying this was a new challenge for the two countries and he was looking to Phuc to help address it.

    "Over the last decade, our bilateral trade deficit has risen from about US$7 billion to nearly US$32 billion," Lighthizer said. "This concerning growth in our trade deficit presents new challenges and shows us that there is considerable potential to improve further our important trade relationship."

    Lighthizer and other Trump administration trade officials have pledged to work to reduce US bilateral trade deficits with major trading partners. The US$32 billion deficit with Vietnam last year - the sixth largest US trade deficit - reflects growing imports of Vietnamese semiconductors and other electronics products in addition to more traditional sectors such as footwear, apparel and furniture.

    The trade issue has become a potential irritant in a relationship where Washington and Hanoi have stepped up security cooperation in recent years given shared concerns about China’s increasingly assertive behaviour in East Asia.

    In a meeting on Tuesday, Trade Minister Tran Tuan Anh told Lighthizer about Vietnam's views and solutions to some US concerns, such as advertising on US social media, electronic payment services and imports of information security and farm products, the southeast Asian nation's trade ministry said.

    Vietnam also urged the United States to remove an inspection programme on catfish, speed import licences for its fruit and make fair decisions on anti-dumping and anti-subsidy measures on Vietnamese products, the ministry said in a statement.

    Phuc's meeting with Trump makes him the first southeast Asian leader to visit the White House under the new administration.

    Vietnam was disappointed when Trump ditched the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact, in which Hanoi was expected to be one of the main beneficiaries, and focused US trade policy on reducing deficits.

  • 05/31/17--16:00: Buy, buy, buy
  • Buy, buy, buyBuy, buy, buyInvestors should not flee HSBC says the chaos surrounding South African President Jacob Zuma make sit a very good time to buy. While some stock investors may choose to flee South Africa as political turmoil engulfs President Jacob Zuma, HSBC analysts argue the noise around the embattled leader and his ruling party makes it a good time to buy.

    That’s because a pick-up in the South African economy and a favourable commodity price cycle as China, the biggest consumer of metals, avoids a hard landing are positive for the local market.

    In addition, elections due in 2019 should deter Zuma’s African National Congress from policies that harm the economy for fear of defeat at the polls, the analysts, led by John Lomax, head of global emerging market equity strategy at HSBC Bank, wrote in a report.

    “We are overweight the South African equity market and think that any rise in the political risk creates a buying opportunity in the context of a positive commodity cycle and domestic economic upturn,” they wrote.

    Financials, consumer staples and technology shares are preferred by the HSBC analysts and their highest conviction buy-rated stocks have the potential to gain an average of 33%, based on the bank’s price targets.

    Companies on the list include construction and engineering company Aveng, Northam Platinum, grocer Woolworths and media and digital giant Naspers, whose gain of almost 40% this year has sent the benchmark index to within 1 000 points of its all-time high.

    Zuma’s dismissal of finance minister Pravin Gordhan at the end of March weakened the rand and prompted S&P Global Ratings and Fitch Ratings to cut their ratings on Africa’s most-industrialised economy to junk. While he has been embroiled in a series of scandals and faced calls from within the ANC to step down, the latest attempt to remove Zuma at a weekend meeting of party executives fizzled out.

    There is a good chance political risks will fall, the HSBC analysts said. The ANC’s December conference, where it will choose its next head, is “a natural focal point,” while the threat of losing to an opposition coalition in the polls two years from now should rein in any radical policy changes. “We see this environment as ultimately conducive to a reduction in perceived political risk, although its timing is very difficult to predict.”

    While last year marked a low point for the economy, the HSBC analysts said underlying conditions remain poor, with the constraints on growth so heavy that expansion will remain below 1 percent this year. The South African central bank last week cut its 2017 growth forecast to 1% from 1.2%.

  • 05/31/17--16:00: House prices still on the up
  • House prices still on the upHouse prices still on the upCentral property prices remain core determinants of the overall market While the market is still in negative growth, house prices are still increasing at strong rates and regional prices are maintaining their trends. FNB Namibia has released the latest residential property index and Josephat Nambashu, an analyst at FNB Namibia, advised that median property prices rose by 13.3% through March to bring the average price of property to N$1 085 000. He elaborates: “The increase was mainly driven by the coastal region, where prices accelerated 21.2% to a new record of N$1 214 000. Central property prices increased 15.2% through the month to N$1 217 000 while southern properties saw prices going up by 11.4% - their highest in a year. Though the northern region hit record highs of N$725 000, the annual pace of increase continues to slow down, now at 1.4% - the lowest in over seven years.”

    Using the housing inflation figures within the consumer price index to deflate the FNB House Price Index into real terms, FNB Namibia saw March real house price inflation measuring 3.7% over the past 12 months, up from 2.5% in February. Housing inflation remains upwardly sticky due to the high cost of home ownership derived from the higher interest rates, rising utility and maintenance costs. The annual rate of house price growth changed from 12.2% in February to 13.3% in March. This has been driven by a combination of resilient buyer demand in most parts of the country which helped to propel the prices higher as well as dismal new housing supply. With housing demand continuously growing and new-build supply struggling to keep pace, excess demand continues to fuel house price inflation to dizzying heights.

    Nambashu: “In the central region, prices continued to grow at 15.2% in March, despite volumes declining by 6.1% on average for the last 12 months. Analysing Windhoek specifically, the median house price is currently N$1 318 000 which is 17% higher over the same period last year. High-income suburbs in the capital have begun to pick up growth, after a general downward trend in recent months. In Kleine Kuppe prices have increased by 4.6%, while in Auasblick and Olympia prices were up by 6.5% and 37.8% respectively. However, growth in low-income areas such as Okuryangava, Khomasdal, Katutura and Rocky Crest remains strong.”

    Looking at the coast, the index states that prices grew by 21.2% to reach N$1 214 000 as volumes declined by 22.7% annually. Swakopmund recorded the highest growth in prices (34.2%) setting the median price at N$1 420 000. In Walvis Bay, prices grew by 19.4% setting the median price of a bonded house at N$1 184 000. Over the past five years, property prices in the high-end of the coastal market have nearly tripled to N$5 143 000. Growth, however, has started to pick up strongly in the middle to lower segment now at about 21% over the year to March 2017.

    Northern towns continue to grow at an increasingly slower pace due to a consistent new housing delivery combined with household income pressures from the drought and government fiscal consolidation efforts. Accordingly, prices rose marginally by 1.4% to their record high of N$725 000, while volumes increased by 17.9%. Katima Mulilo recorded the highest price growth of 45.9%, followed by Okahao 29% and Oshikuku 28.5%. Twelve of the highest price movements are in the northern region, however, the massive price drops in Rundu and Oshakati have neutralised the overall price movement at the segment level. The decline in Rundu and Oshakati are potentially supply-driven based on the volume increase in the two towns. Southern property prices increased by 11.4% to N$592 000 over the last 12 months, but this is a rather thin market and price movements should be treated with utmost caution.

    “Notwithstanding the coastal price increase of 21.2% and it being the seventh fastest rate of growth, with prices reaching a new all-time high, the central property prices have been the core determinants of the overall market. However, recent data shows a widening price gap between the national and Windhoek property markets. This suggests that other factors are starting to play an increasingly significant role in the national property price determination. We suspect this may be due to a much weaker price growth along with stronger volume growth in northern region property prices, rather than the increase in central property prices. Low numbers of sale transactions in some part of country, such as the southern region, can also lead to volatility in the series, further widening the gap,” states Nambashu.

    Nambashu concluded that by examining the FNB House Price Index by market segments, that saw the top end of the market prices increasing by 19%, while the middle- to low-income segment increased by 12.9% and 12.5% respectively. “This indicates surprising strong housing demand against a weak economic backdrop with widespread job losses. Given the credit tightening and bleak economic backdrop, the outlook for the housing market remains uncertain as the recent price developments are exposed to economic headwinds. For now, we expect seasonally adjusted demand to remain robust in the short term, pushing house price inflation higher to 14.4% level by year end. However, tight credit conditions along with disposable income pressures will reverse the trend through 2018 to 9.3%. Mass housing delivery could push price expectations lower than forecast.”

  • 05/31/17--16:00: Kenyan aid workers probed
  • Kenyan aid workers probedKenyan aid workers probedUN says they demanded payment for services Three staff members at a refugee camp in northwest Kenya are being investigated for bribery, intimidation and threats. The UN refugee agency said Tuesday it has turned to Kenyan police for possible criminal prosecution of three staffers for allegedly carrying out threats, intimidation and fraud against refugees and other personnel at a camp in northwest Kenya.

    The UN High Commissioner for Refugees spokesperson Babar Baloch says the move, which has led to one arrest so far, follows an internal investigation launched after allegations of wrongdoing involving those three and two more staffers at the Kakuma refugee camp emerged between April 2016 and January 2017.

    Baloch said staff members allegedly sought payments of US$500 to US$2 500 from refugees for various services that should be free, threatened other workers and intimidated the camp's occupants.

    Revelations of illegal activities by refugee camp employees are uncommon from the Geneva-based agency. It said in a statement that in response it had launched an independent management review, an unspecified “information campaign” and efforts to “deepen anti-fraud awareness and prevention measures.”

    “Protecting lives is at the core of UNHCR's work, which makes the betrayal of trust we have seen in this case so galling,” Assistant High Commissioner for Refugees George Okoth-Obbo said in the statement.

    Two of the staffers have resigned and internal “disciplinary processes” were underway against the others, UNHCR said.

    As the allegations emerged, the agency said it suspended normal resettlements from Kakuma, a 25-year-old camp now housing 172 000 refugees — mostly from South Sudan.
