  • 06/20/17--16:00: 35 years for murder
  • 35 years for murder35 years for murderMan gets lengthy sentence for killing lover Judge Nate Ndauendapo handed down a 35-year sentence for murder yesterday to a 52-year-old man. Domestic violence is regarded as an aggravating factor when imposing sentences.

    This offence is prevalent in Namibia and our society craves for the assistance of our courts in protecting our women and children as this offence has reached a crisis point.

    These were the words of Judge Nate Ndauendapo when he imposed a 35-year term of imprisonment on the 52-year-old Paulus Ruben for murder with direct intent.

    “The clear and unequivocal message which should resonate from the courts in Namibia is that crimes involving domestic violence are not tolerated and that sentences would be appropriately severe,” the judge said.

    Ruben was found guilty of the murder of his girlfriend, Magritha Beukes, 41.

    Beukes was found dead in the house she was sharing with Ruben at Bahnhof close to Rehoboth.

    Ruben had run away after the murder.

    The judge said Ruben had hit Beukes with an unknown object on the head and then ran.

    He added that Beukes succumbed to the blunt force trauma which resulted in internal bleeding.

    “The accused is a first offender. However both the seriousness of the offence he committed and the interest of society, calls for a lengthy sentence,” Ndauendapo emphasised.

    In his judgement Ndauendapo had found that the state had proven beyond reasonable doubt that Ruben was the person who murdered Beukes.

    He was arrested eight days later at a farm about 50km from Bahnhof.

    State prosecutor Ethel Ndlovu during the proceedings that Ruben has been in custody for the past five years but this cannot be counted automatically in his favour.

    “The moral blameworthiness of the accused is that he has never been remorseful throughout the trial,” Ndlovu argued.

    She stressed the accused did not show remorse and thereby did not take the court into his confidence.

    She argued that is why it would be difficult for the court to consider mercy in his favour.

    “Mercy should go both ways. The accused did not show any mercy to the deceased,” she maintained.

    State-funded defence lawyer Hipura Ujaha on behalf of his client informed the court that the accused has been in custody for five years as his application for bail was refused.

    According to him, a lengthy custodial sentence will break his client who is now 52.

    “With a custodial sentence must be an element of mercy,” he pleaded and added that sentence above 30 years will amount to life imprisonment.

    Ndauendapo disagreed and imposed 35 years.

    SADR wants AU to resolve Western Sahara conflictSADR wants AU to resolve Western Sahara conflict Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) President, Brahim Ghali wants the African Union (AU) to promptly find a solution to the Western Sahara conflict.

    Special Envoy and Foreign Minister of the SADR, Ouldsaler Salem said this when he delivered a letter from Ghali to President Hage Geingob at State House on Monday.

    “The letter of President Ghali is saying that the time has come for the AU to work strongly to end this occupation and to find a solution between the two countries,” he noted.

    The Western Sahara conflict has been long-running between SADR and Morocco over Western Sahara, a disputed territory where the two sides fought a war until a 1991 ceasefire and where United Nations (UN) talks have failed to reach an accord.

    “We accept to go with a referendum and ask the Sahrawi people whether they want to be independent or a part of Morocco, but Morocco is blocking the referendum,” Salem said.

    In a second letter Salem read to Geingob, he stated that Morocco does not accept the AU's involvement in the conflict.

    “Morocco has written a letter to the UN Secretary-General, saying it can't accept the involvement of the AU in the action of solutions for Western Sahrawi, because the issue is in the hands of the UN Security Council,” he said.

    Morocco left the AU in 1984 when the union recognised the independence of Western Sahara.

    However, Morocco was readmitted as a member of the AU after a vote at an AU Summit on 30 January 2017, in spite of the Western Sahara conflict.

    In his response, Geingob said the Sahrawi people should be allowed to decide for themselves in a referendum.

  • 06/20/17--16:00: Khomas jobless rate rises
  • Khomas jobless rate rises Khomas jobless rate rises The good, the bad and the ugly Although unemployment is one of the major challenges facing the Khomas Region, there appears to be no programme in place to deal with the problem. Youth unemployment continues to rise in the Khomas Region with a 5% increase measured between 2014 and 2016.

    However, note teenage pregnancies have dropped to less than 10%.

    These key facts were highlighted during the 2017 State of the Region Address (SORA) by governor Laura Mcleod-Katjirua yesterday, that looked at the region’s challenges and successes during the past year.

    Youth unemployment has risen from 32.1% in 2014 and 37.5% in 2016, she said, partly because the region continues to attract people from other parts of the country, in search of better opportunities.

    Mcleod-Katjirua added that as part of the successes under health in the region, teenage pregnancies decreased by 2%, from 10% overall to 8%.

    Meanwhile, the food bank programme has been extended to 22 354 households, covering more than 94 500 people in seven constituencies.

    The governor said currently three street committee members have been appointed to assist the ministry of poverty eradication with the programme and the distribution of food.

    The governor praised the City of Windhoek’s dedication and handling of the water crisis that has gripped the central region, leading to severe water restrictions until recently.

    She warned the country’s water and drought woes are not over, and that “water supply remains a major challenge”, encouraging all Namibians to use water wisely.

    Mcleod-Katjirua further highlighted ongoing efforts of the municipality in Windhoek to provide land and services, including the recent approval to upgrade various parts of a number of informal settlement areas with basic services.

    The governor noted that of concern is the HIV prevalence rate of 13% in the region, while low, is still beyond the goal of 11% set for 2014.

    Mcleod-Katjirua said the fact that the goal has not yet been achieved is “surely disturbing.”

    Education ups and downs

    Overcrowded classrooms in the region remain a challenge, and have “become a quality compromising factor,” the governor said.

    “The reality is that some schools have more than the required 25 students for pre-primary, 30 for secondary and 35 for primary school learners per teacher.”

    Learner enrolment into primary and secondary schools in the region increased by 4.31% between last year and this year, from 83 748 in 2016 to 87 359, of which just over 60 000 were at primary school level and the rest at secondary schools.

    Forty-six new classrooms were constructed in 2016 “in densely populated areas”, she said.

    The governor said that the presence of tent schools at some project schools is indicative of the regional directorate of education always ensuring that learners are accommodated, even with constraints.

    Windhoek’s two main tertiary campuses this year enrolled close to 38 000 students, with the University of Namibia hosting 25 064 students and the Namibia University of Science and Technology enrolments numbering 12 753.

    Some 57% of the enrolled students are female while 43% are male, the governor said.

    Check the pulse

    More than 24 400 people in the region are receiving treatment and care for HIV, while the availability of HIV counselling and testing services at every health facility in the region resulted in the close to 71 000 being tested last year.

    Immunisation coverage of children under five increased to 90%.

    The Regional AIDS Coordinating Committee (RACOC), through the Khomas Regional Council provided basic food items valued at N$180 000 to people living with HIV/Aids and orphan and vulnerable families over the past year.

    Mcleod-Katjirua said this programme was a critical tool to help many stick to their HIV treatment programmes.

    Moreover, a total of 19 659 men were circumcised in the region this past year.

    City moves

    Under the mass housing programme, the municipality and the land ministry are currently installing municipal services at a portion of Goreangab, on 65.5 hectares of land that will yield a total of 314 erven, the governor said.

    She highlighted the city’s on-going multi-million project, the City of Windhoek has provided individual house connections to recently formalised homes in Havana and will connect more homes in Otjomuise, Katutura and Havana when finances allow.

    On a negative note, she said while there was an 8% reduction in robberies and burglaries in Windhoek, crime remains a serious concern.

    On a regional level, 36 571 cases were reported to the Namibian police in 2016.

  • 06/20/17--16:00: Babies still in dire space
  • Babies still in dire spaceBabies still in dire space Social workers were yesterday unable to take two babies into care because the mothers of the infants turned up highly intoxicated.

    The Ministry of Gender and Child Welfare has threatened to take away the babies and put them into foster care due to homelessness.

    The babies are currently staying with their mothers in a dilapidated and abandoned government building in Windhoek.

    The building has no running water or electricity and is not safe from violence and other criminal activity.

    The two babies, aged six and 18 months sleep with their mothers and 20-odd homeless people, surviving off begging to feed themselves.

    Yesterday’s attempt by the authorities to remove the babies proved futile.

    A City Police officer who accompanied the social workers, said the officials, opted not to take the babies into care as both the mothers were intoxicated when they arrived roughly at 09:00 in the morning.

    “We were there and we found the mothers and the two babies but it was unfortunate that they were drunk so we could not remove the babies because the social workers had to explain to the mothers nicely why they wanted to take them,” said the police officer.

    An expert in social work, who chose not to be named, expressed her surprise and dismay at this action, saying the social workers were supposed to act in the best interest of the babies.

    “If the interest of the babies is not to be left in a dilapidated building with drunkards and they are openly exposed to danger, the babies must be removed. They are supposed to work in accordance to convention of the rights of the child,” she said. One of the squatters at the abandoned building claimed the social workers and City Police officers were outnumbered when compared to the number of occupants in the house and therefore had to leave without the babies.

    “Only three of them showed up to take the babies in a government car but they were only a few and were afraid of us so they left,” said the squatter. The police officer denied they were outnumbered, saying the only reason they left was because the mothers were intoxicated and they could not take the children without explaining to the mothers why they were taking them.

    “There was a bit of misunderstanding with the drunken mothers and we left without taking the babies. The social workers had to tell them why they had to take the babies first and since the mothers were drunk they couldn’t do that.”

    The City Police has been aware of the state of affairs at least since before last week Friday.

    The children were set to be removed on Monday but this was subsequently moved to yesterday.

    Ex-Katima CEO arrested for allegedly selling leased landEx-Katima CEO arrested for allegedly selling leased land Former Katima Mulilo CEO Charles Nawa was arrested on Tuesday on charges of corruption and fraud after he allegedly sold council land, which he was leasing to a businessperson.
    Nawa appeared this morning before Magistrate Vincent Nzaca in the Katima Mulilo Magistrate’s Court and granted bail of N$10 000.
    The case was remanded to 28 July for further investigations while Nawa secures legal representation.
    Regarding the corruption and fraud charges, it is alleged that Nawa, who has been leasing 1 500 square metres of land for a period of five years from council, sold the land.
    The lease has not yet lapsed.
    The property in question is situated on the banks of the Zambezi River close to the waterfront, which Nawa allegedly sold to a businessperson and was paid N$200 000 for it.
    It is further alleged it was just until the buyer, who later discovered that the land he bought did not belong to Nawa but actually is still property of the council, demanded to be refunded.
    After failing to get his money back, the buyer laid charges with the police which led to the arrest of Nawa.
    Aubrey Ndlovu appeared for the State.

  • 06/21/17--16:00: Time to rewrite history
  • Time to rewrite historyTime to rewrite historyBlue Machine craves to make his mark Blue Machine Indongo says he will take the belt from Crawford when they meet in the ring. The first Namibian WBA light-welterweight world champion, Julius 'The Blue Machine” Indongo wants to make history when he faces Terence Crawford from America in the quest to win the WBC belt which is in Terence Crawford's possession.Indongo said this at yesterday's courtesy visit to the police chief, Inspector-General Sebastian Ndeitunga at the police headquarters in Windhoek.

    The boxer, along with four other athletes working in the police force, was invited by the chief for a motivational talk. Indongo took a moment to thank his fans for their support saying that he will keep his discipline wherever he goes. “Our camp is always focused and determined. We will keep continue flying the Namibian flag high as we try to enforce the change we want to see as the youth of this nation,” he said.

    Ndeitunga was impressed with the hard work and determination shown by the athletes in the Namibian police force and said that they sacrifice a lot to compete and bring medals home. He promised to give them special time off work whenever they need to compete internationally.

    “I will help you train and keep them in shape if I have to,” he told Nestor Tobias from Nestor Sunshine Tobias Boxing and Fitness Academy.

    He further said that athletes should remain humble and focused. “Fly the Namibian flag high wherever you go. You are ambassadors of this country, behave in an exemplary fashion. Boxing is very important for the body and mind and if you follow instructions from your trainer and add your own initiative, you will do well in your career.”

    Ndeitunga also added that not only do athletes have ranks in their respective sport codes but they also have ranks in the police force which they need to uphold. “The sky is the limit, if you are hardworking and determined, the system will take care of you,” he said referring to a question of whether Indongo will get a promotion because of his world champion status.

    He told Tobias to continue doing a great job with boxers in his academy. “We heard what happened in Ghana when Waltor 'The Executioner' Kaindokwa knocked out his opponent. Many will say that they spent a lot of money and that the fight was short, but we congratulate the boxer for finishing the job early and adding another title to his name.”

    “All boxers should emulate the likes of 'The Executioner,” he said.

  • 06/21/17--16:00: NAFPU lures Trip Travel
  • NAFPU lures Trip TravelNAFPU lures Trip Travel Players under the Namibia Football Players Union (NAFPU) now have global and local travelling privileges after the union entered into a partnership with Trip Travel.

    The partnership will run for the next three years, with an option to extend in 2020. The agreement between the two parties is meant to make trips for players willing to gain exposure outside the country easier on the condition that they are registered with NAFPU. Trip Travel will also assist Namibian players plying their trade abroad, and in South Africa, with travel arrangements. The company is further to assist NAFPU's employees with travel arrangements in and outside the country. Speaking on behalf of Trip Travel, Nakushe Kapofi said that the company is delighted by the agreement they signed. “We are not strangers to NAFPU because we come back as far as 2008 in assisting them. “As a leading force in the travel industry, we are very happy to officially enter into this partnership. “We are here to serve the players because we know that they need to be exposed outside the country,” Kapofi said. Kapofi further recognised the difficult economic times the country is facing and therefore deemed it important for companies to form partnerships.

    NAFPU president Sylvester 'Lolo' Goraseb could not hide his excitement after the agreement was signed. “This partnership is critical for us given that it will make attending workshops and global events easier for us. “President Hage Geingob last week ordered the football family to get their house in order for the sake of football. “We would like to thank Trip Travel, TUCNA and the teachers union for supporting NAFPU.

    “We further want to improve the education standards of the players in order for them to have a better future after their playing careers,” Goraseb told reporters at the signing of the partnership in Windhoek.

    Ride virtually to save a rhinoRide virtually to save a rhino The brand 'Touch and Go' is bringing the first-ever Brandberg Rhino Run/Walk and Ride Virtual Race to everyone who was unable to travel to Uis on 11 June to take part in the Brandberg Rhino Run and Ride.

    The event will take place on 24 and 25 June. Participants in the virtual race can be run, walk or cycle in any location, even indoors on a treadmill, in a group or alone, or as part of another race. The participant pays an entry fee which goes to the non-profit organisation, Save the Rhino Trust.

    Participants are then tasked to share their experience by submitting photos and comments on social media or via email.

    Runners, walkers and cyclists can take part in the Brandberg Rhino Run and Ride Virtual Race for a fee of N$100 and choose from a five-kilometre run, walk or cycling event.

    Entry fee includes a Brandberg Rhino Run t-shirt for the first 100 entries and a beautifully handcrafted medal. Participants receive an electronic race bib which they then print and wear on the race day.

    There is a special prize for the participant that submits the best photo of themselves on social media under the hashtag #rhinorunFrance as they take part in the race.

    Entry forms and information is on www.touchandgo.com.na under Brandberg Rhino Run and Ride, or email Riana Scholtz on touchandgorun@gmail.com.

    Thus far entries have been received from participants from Keetmanshoop, Windhoek, Walvis Bay, Gobabis, New Zealand, London and Japan.

    Nico Scholtz from Touch and Go said that one participant entered herself and her son twice, and plans to take part in the run on Saturday and to partake in the ride on Sunday. “It is heart-warming to see so many athletes that participated in the event in Uis on 11 June also entering to take part in the virtual race. That is the true spirit of being active for rhino conservation,” said Scholtz.”

    The event is coordinated to coincide with the Mont Blanc Marathon, which takes place in Chamonix, France, on 25 June. One of the virtual race organisers will be taking part in the marathon in support of Save the Rhino Trust, as extension of the Brandberg Rhino Run and Ride fundraising and awareness raising campaign.

    The organisers are liaising with conservationist organisations in France and Switzerland to support the campaign and also take part in the Virtual Race.

    SKW dominates third round of Fistball leagueSKW dominates third round of Fistball league The third round of matches in the Bank Windhoek National Fistball League, held at the DTS fields, reached a high point on 17 June.

    SKW1 moved past the table leaders CFC1, in the National A League, with four points clear at the top. In the National B League, SKW2 won all their games and has a comfortable 11 points lead over second team, DTS.

    The defending champions, CFC1, defeated CFC2 with an easy score line of 3 - 0 in the first game of the day. In the second match of the day, SKW1 had to battle it out against CFC1. The first set went to CFC1. In the second set the green-and-whites had a better start into the game and improved their tactical approach. This change of tactics turned the game around in favour of the Green-Whites.

    In the third set, SKW1 took advantage of a weakened CFC1 defence, to win the set resoundingly. In the next encounter SKW1 faced bottom of the table CFC2. The outcome was expected, as the record champions, SKW1, was focused on winning and took all three sets during the encounter.

    CFC1 and CFC2 played against each other in the second encounter between the two counterparts. CFC2 lost 30 against their club colleagues. The pressure is on CFC2 to register a point, as they still have not registered a single point on the table.

    In the second game against SKW1, CFC1 changed their game to generate more pressure from the serve. However, with a poor build-up play by the Blue-Whites, SKW1 could not be beaten. SKW1 played solid three sets and won with a score line of 3:0. In the second match against CFC 2, SKW1 once again dominated the match. As a result they now lead four points clear at the top of the table, while CFC1 is in the second spot.

    With the number of points on the table, SKW1 and CFC1 have already qualified for the playoffs scheduled for September. CFC2, on the other hand, can only get a maximum of 18 points in the remaining six fixtures.

    In the National B League, the dominant SKW2 defended their top position as they walked away with maximum points to stay 11 points clear at the top. Their closest rivals, SFC1, did not pose a danger to them.

    Another drawback for SFC1 was because their main attacker, Knolle Kolb, was not available. This resulted in the team not having powerful attacks during their games. SFC1 lost 4 - 0 against DTS.

    CFC3 went on to win the club's internal duel against their counterpart CFC4. As it stands, DTS is now in second place, sharing points with SFC, but with a better ball ratio. SKW2 has already qualified for the play off finals due to their points.

    Konrad Swart from DTS took the player of the day award. The next games will take place on 1 July, at the Cohen Fistball Club.

  • 06/21/17--16:00: Okahandja awaits Charity Run
  • Okahandja awaits Charity RunOkahandja awaits Charity Run The first-ever Okahandja Charity Run is scheduled to take place on 1 July to raise funds for children with cerebral palsy.

    The Okahandja Shopping Centre is collaborating with the Okahandja Running Club to host the charity run themed 'Run for Cerebral Palsy'. Cerebral palsy is a neurological disorder which affects body movement and muscle coordination and currently six children are living with cerebral palsy in Okahandja.

    Participants can choose to compete in the 21- or five-kilometre fun run.

    The participants will be divided into various groups for both men and women: Veterans (40 plus years), elite (18-39 years) and juniors (14 -17 years).

    There will be prize monies for the overall winners plus gold, silver and bronze medals in all categories.

    The breakdown of these monies is yet to be determined as more sponsors are expected to come on board.

    The official start will be at the Okahandja Shopping Centre.

    Proceeds from the charity run will be channelled towards the Cerebral Palsy Day Care Centre, a non-profit organisation in Okahandja assisting in the daily necessities of the children, such as physiotherapy and sanitary pads and other general medication needs.

    The organisers are looking at making this an annual event.

    The registration fees are N$150 for the 21-kilometre run and N$30 for the five-kilometre fun run.

    NBF gears for historic tourneyNBF gears for historic tourneyAiming for the Olympics NBF will host the first ever national 3-on-3 basketball games in Windhoek. The game of basketball has officially been approved by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as an Olympic sport discipline beginning 2020 inTokyo.

    The Namibian Basketball Federation (NBF) has thus jump started their campaign to qualify for the 2024 Olympic Games and in collaboration with Fresh FM will host the tournament on 24 June on the upper level parking of Wernhil.

    The secretary-general of NBF Ramah Mumba said that they are grateful for the support received from the sport commission and government. “If this support continues, the federation will ensure that basketball will be played in all regions in the next seven years” he said.

    Mwiya added that he wants to give youth the opportunity nationwide to educate themselves on how 3-on-3 basketball is played and to develop the game further.

    He further said that NBF's main objective through this event is to select and identify talent which will be groomed for future youth Olympic Games and to create a platform to participate at international competitions.

    Young and old basketball enthusiasts in Namibia are invited to celebrate in the Olympic day and compete. The age categories competing are under -13, 15, 18, and seniors players.

    The message of fair play and sportsmanship is highly encouraged and the NBF is also using 3-on-3 basketball as a vehicle to tackle social issues and create awareness.

    Registration forms are available on the website www.namibianbasketball.com.

    India wants to host 2032 OlympicsIndia wants to host 2032 OlympicsLearned from mistakes As the world's second-most populous nation after China, it is said that it was time for India to follow its powerful neighbour. India's Olympic Association has asked the government for permission to bid for the 2032 Olympics and 2030 Asian Games as part of a drive to put the country at the heart of the international sporting community, IOA President N. Ramachandran has told Reuters.

    Ramachandran said the IOA also wanted India to host the Asian Beach Games in 2020, the Olympic Council of Asia's general assembly that year, and the International Olympic Committee session in 2021.

    The aim, Ramachandran said, was to use the engagement as a catalyst for the growth of Olympic sports in India and to help improve the country's miserable standing in pretty much every sport apart from cricket.

    Dismissing concerns about whether India can afford to stage such huge sporting spectacles, Ramachandran said the country was one of the few in the region that did have the means.

    It was up to the government to set the wheels in motion, he told Reuters in an interview. “From my part, I am telling them if you bid, I will make sure you get it,” he added.

    Ramachandran said he had spoken about India's prospects of hosting an Olympics with IOC President Thomas Bach, an indication of the early groundwork required for a serious bid.

    “You cannot take a decision today and say, 'I want to host an Olympic Games tomorrow.' It is an eight-year process. So you have to start now,” Ramachandran said.

    “If you are looking at anything it's 2032.

    That will give you 10 years to improve the infrastructure and you will have a decision (to make) in the next four to six years.”

    The Indian government had agreed to discuss the proposals in cabinet and revert back to the IOA, Ramachandran added.



    Economic power

    Winning the hosting rights for an Olympic Games is not the hot ticket it once was.

    Los Angeles and Paris are the only candidates left in the race for the 2024 Olympics after four other cities pulled out over cost concerns. The IOC will award both the 2024 and 2028 Summer Games at the same time and the expectation is that the two cities will host one each.

    For the 2022 Winter Games, four of six bidders pulled out citing high costs or lack of support, leaving Beijing to beat Almaty in the final vote.

    Ramachandran was confident India, which has Asia's third-largest economy, would be capable of meeting the costs.

    “India is one of the emerging economies,” he said. “Even assuming you spend U$12 billion on an Olympic event, U$6 billion will be given to you by the IOC.

    “What is U$6 billion over a period of eight years for a country which has the size of the economy which India has today? “Not many countries today wish to host the Olympics.

    China has already had everything possible that can be hosted.” In terms of hosting experience, India has successfully staged several global cricket tournaments, and FIFA say they are satisfied with preparations for the Under-17 World Cup in October.

    But a question mark over the country's ability to host an international multi-sports event has hung over India since the 2010 Commonwealth Games, a $6 billion event billed as Delhi's answer to the Beijing Olympics.



    Learned from mistakes

    A series of embarrassments over leaking stadiums and filthy accommodation culminated in Games chief Suresh Kalmadi spending nine months in prison for inflating tenders worth millions of dollars.

    Ramachandran said there would be no repeat of those blunders.

    “We have learnt from our mistakes. You see the South Asian Games (in 2016) that was hosted in Guwahati. Nobody said anything,” he added.

    “We should stick to what we know best - technical conduct of the Games. Even when we hosted the Commonwealth Games in India, (the IOC) praised the technical conduct of the event.

    And we also did very well in the medals tally.”

    While the hosts finished second to Australia at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, to say that India has underperformed at the Olympics is an understatement.

    India has won just 28 medals since 1900, with Abhinav Bindra claiming the country's only individual gold medal in the men's 10 metre air rifle in Beijing.

    “We have very clearly advised the government that if you are just going to send your athletes to participate in international tournaments, that alone will not be sufficient for sports to grow in India,” Ramachandran said.

    “You also need to conduct multi-sports events in India. Because then you will have more referees, more officials, your administrators can get into international sports federations.

    “If you are on an international body then you can help your athletes more.”

  • All gunsAll gunsAs 450kW E63 AMG hits SA Mercedes-AMG has upped the super saloon ante with its new E63 S 4Matic+, the most powerful E-Class yet created. Launched in South Africa this week, along with its tamer E43 sibling, the latest uber-E gets its gusto from the same 4-litre bi-turbo V8 we know well from numerous other AMGs, but with outputs raised to 450kW and 850Nm.

    That's 30kW and 100Nm more than the normal E63 (which won't be sold in our market), but also 20kW and 150Nm more than the AMG GT R supercar.

    Up until now, the GT R was the most powerful car using this engine.

    To make sure these insane numbers make it down to the road, and to ensure no forward force is lost to wheelspin when blasting off the line, Mercedes has made the range-topping E-Class available with 4Matic all-wheel drive only.

    It's an AMG-specific drivetrain though, so it goes without saying that drive is diverted mostly to the rear axle in most driving situations.

    And, if you want to get seriously playful, there's a drift mode function to allow some sideways shuffle.

    The 63 S 4Matic+ also uses the same nine-speed multi-clutch auto gearbox as other AMG cars, but here it's equipped with a new “wet start-up” clutch that makes for smoother (and less harsh at launch control) pulloffs.

    That's 30kW and 100Nm more than the normal E63 (which won't be sold in our market), but also 20kW and 150Nm more than the AMG GT R supercar. Up until now, the GT R was the most powerful car using this engine.

    All this adds up to one of the quickest Mercs ever made, with 100km/h coming in a claimed 3.4 seconds. Yip, it's faster than any of the AMG GT models, and there's space for a few passengers and a decent amount of luggage.

    Top speed is, as usual, governed to 250km/h but pay in for the optional Driver's Package and this is lifted to 300.

    This crazy performance comes on top of all the usual luxury items available in regular E-Class models, including latest semi-autonomous driving aids, air suspension, perfume dispensers, massaging seats, Burmester sound systems, wireless phone charging and connected services.

    In fact, there's even a new Mercedes Me app which works hand in hand with a Remote Online service to offer owners access to vehicle information remotely.

    This feature then allows remote locking and unlocking, parked vehicle locator, vehicle tracking, and geofencing (you'll know if your car crosses a predefined border).

    Mercedes South Africa requires registration of Mercedes Me and Remote Online to unlock the full six-year/100 000km Premium Drive maintenance contracts.

    For those who want the thrills of a fast, all-wheel drive AMG E-Class, but don't necessarily need (or can't afford) the ludicrous figures attached to the 63, Mercedes has also introduced a new 43 4Matic option.

    This variant comes with two fewer cylinders, but still has plenty of oomph with outputs of 295kW and 520Nm.

    Under the hood is the same 3-litre bi-turbo V6 already in use in plenty of other 43-badged Mercs, but here is tuned up to its most powerful guise yet.

    Claimed performance figures are set at 4.6 seconds for 0-100km/h, and top speed is limited to 250 (no Driver's Package available here).

    The 43 shares a similar drivetrain with the full monte 63 with a nine-speed gearbox driving all four wheels, but here the 4Matic system is set at a permanent 31:69% front/rear axle split. The 43 also comes with Merc's Air Body Control pneumatic suspension as standard, and the same connected services as the 63 are also possible here.

    Taxi drivers blame impatient passengersTaxi drivers blame impatient passengers Potholes, lack of roads and impatient passengers are some of the issues that impede attempts to achieve road safety.

    These were among the challenges highlighted by taxi association representatives attending the City of Tshwane's road safety campaign in Hammanskraal this week.

    The campaign, called TshwaAlert, was launched in February to focus on sustaining law enforcement efforts throughout the year, as opposed to only during the festive season periods and long weekends.

    John Nkuna, who chairs 10 taxi associations within the Hammanskraal area, said their operators were aware of the dangers that reckless driving posed to commuters and themselves.

    Nkuna, however, implored city representatives to deal with the poor state of the roads, look into creating parking stations and the establishment of drop-off points.

    “We know that driving in the yellow lane is dangerous but our drivers have to contend with passengers constantly telling them that they are running late for work.

    “All we ask is for additional lanes to be built in the area. If we had at least two extra lanes that could help ease traffic in our community,” he said.

    Metro Police spokesperson Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba highlighted that they had received numerous complaints of taxis operating in Lynnwood, Centurion and the Mabopane Highway using the yellow-line lanes.

    Mahamba said these infringements led to unnecessary accidents.

    “A large number of our youths between the ages of 20 and 39 are dying on a daily basis due to these accidents and we are worried about this issue.

    “That is why we have gone out in our numbers to taverns and other places to urge passengers not to travel with intoxicated and reckless drivers,” he said.

    Mahamba pleaded with taxi representatives to work with the department by ensuring that drivers had the necessary documentation and adhered to safety regulations.

    MMC for Housing Mandla Nkomo, standing in for his Roads and Transport counterpart Sheila Senkubuge, applauded the taxi representatives for being able to voice their frustrations during their march on Thursday without resorting to violence.

    “The future of this country is in your hands because you ferry so many of our people.

    “Taxi drivers and owners deserve respect from everyone because the perception that has been created that they are violent is not true.”

    TshwaAlert was launched on February 1 and will run until February next year, focusing on sustaining law enforcement efforts throughout the year.

    The need for the intervention came after minister of transport at the time Dipuo Peters released the festive season road death statistics in January.

  • 06/21/17--16:00: Volkswagen Polo GTI revealed
  • Volkswagen Polo GTI revealedVolkswagen Polo GTI revealedHot hatch powered by 2.0-litre TSI engine The next Polo is also the biggest yet, with a wider and longer wheelbase. Volkswagen has launched a new generation of its best-selling Polo at an event in Germany.

    The new model has an entirely new exterior design, a more spacious interior, new cockpit layout, efficient TSI (petrol), TGI (natural gas) and TDI (diesel) engines.

    Dr Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Board of Management for Volkswagen, said: “The Polo is a young, fresh car. It combines charisma with strong technology. No other car offers so much space for its size. This makes our Polo the number one compact, and it will remain number one.”

    The new Polo GTI, to be launched in Europe later in 2017, will now be powered by a 2.0-litre TSI with an output of 147kW (previous model 1.8 TSI with 141kW. Matching the engine's high output are the standard sport chassis and the optional Sport Select chassis.

    At the front, is has a new sports bumper with integrated spoiler lip and fog lights as standard. Typical GTI insignia at the front include the red stripe on the radiator grille, honeycomb air vent screens and GTI badge.

    Optional LED headlights with a red winglet are available. At the rear, the Polo GTI sports a large black spoiler (underside is black matt), a diffuser, GTI-specific dual exhausts (left side), LED taillights and GTI badging. Along the sides, GTI characteristics include standard 17” alloy wheels (18” optional), side sill extensions and brake calipers that are painted red.

    Inside, it's fitted with sport seats adorned with the automaker's legendary 'Clark' tartan pattern, a multi-function leather-trimmed sport steering wheel with red stitching, rooflining and roof pillars in black and a GTI gear shift grip.

  • 06/21/17--16:00: 2018 F1 calendar announced
  • 2018 F1 calendar announced2018 F1 calendar announcedFrance and Germany return The calendar for the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship has been approved during a meeting of the FIA World Motor Sport Council. The French Grand Prix will return to the Formula One calendar next year, for the first time since 2008, as part of an unprecedented triple-header with Austria and Britain.

    The FIA governing body published a 21-race 2018 calendar on Monday with France and Germany's Hockenheim, absent this year, returning while Malaysia drops off.

    The race at Le Castellet, inland from Marseille, will be on June 24, avoiding a clash with the Le Mans 24 Hours on June 16-17, followed by Austria on July 1 and Silverstone on July 8.

    Formula One has not had three races on successive weekends before, due to logistical reasons, although it has been mooted.

    A proposed street race in New Jersey was sandwiched between Monaco and Canada on the provisional 2014 calendar but the US round did not happen for financial reasons.

    The season will start in Australia on March 25 with teams then travelling to Shanghai and Bahrain, which will be back-to-back on April 8 and 15, before the Azerbaijan Grand Prix on April 29.

    Russia was the fourth round this year but that race moves away from the May Day holiday weekend to an end of September slot instead.

    Spain's Circuit de Barcelona opens the European season on May 13, followed by the showcase Monaco race, before Formula One travels across the Atlantic to Canada on June 10 and then returns to France.

    Germany returns on July 22 with a race at Hockenheim, followed by Hungary on the next weekend, with the three week August break maintained after fears it might have to go to accommodate the extra races.

    Belgium's Spa-Francorchamps and Italy's Monza are also back-to-back races, in late August and early September, with Singapore - Asia's glittering floodlit night race - a stand-alone on Sept 16.

    Singapore and China both have asterisks against them as subject to confirmation by the commercial rights holder.

    Russia and Japan are paired, as are the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas, and Mexico.

    The season ends in Abu Dhabi, as usual, on November 25.

    Sean Bratches, commercial managing director for Formula One after former supremo Bernie Ecclestone was moved aside in January following Liberty Media's takeover, has spoken of the need to divide the calendar more clearly into regions.

    “We're trying to align these things better by territory: European races, the American races, the Asian races,” he told Reuters this month. Liberty wants ultimately to increase the number of races in the United States and there has been talk of the calendar stretching to as many as 25 rounds after 2018.
