    Naidjala tipped for title fightNaidjala tipped for title fightBout not confirmed yet IBF Africa has revealed that Namibia's Immanuel 'Prince' Naidjala might fight for an intercontinental bantamweight title in October. Boxing promoter Nestor Tobias says the fight between Prince Naidjala and South Africa's Mzuvukile Magwaca has not been finalised yet.

    Tobias did confirm, though, that talks of that nature were happening between the two camps.

    This is after the IBF Africa president, Onesmo Ngowi, announced on social media that the two boxers were likely to trade leather on 5 October.

    Mzuvukile Magwaca won the vacant IBF intercontinental bantamweight title in July and is mandated to defend it by 6 October.

    It is understood that the most likely boxer to come up against the South African is Namibia's Immanuel 'Prince' Naidjala.

    “Yes, there is something of that nature in the pipeline, but we will announce it when all negotiations have been completed.

    “It is not only Naidjala who could be fighting around that time and that is why it is too early to announce the fight,” Tobias said.

    The Namibian last fought in April when he lost the WBO intercontinental bantamweight fight against Siboniso Gonya at the Ramatex Complex in Windhoek.

    Naidjala holds a record of 23 wins, three losses and one draw in his 27 professional fights.

    His biggest fight was when he challenged Japan's Tomoki Kameda for the WBO bantamweight world title in December 2013.

    After putting up a great challenge to the former bantamweight number one, Naidjala eventually lost the fight by unanimous decision.

    It was the 32-year-old's first defeat in his professional career following 18 clear wins before December 2013.

    Meanwhile, Tobias says he is more focused on hosting a successful MTC No Mercy Part 7 boxing bonanza at the Windhoek Country Club on 9 September.

    The bonanza will see former world champion Paulus 'Hitman' Moses defend his WBO Africa lightweight title against Saidi Mundi.

    There will also be several undercards, including a fight which will see Sakaria 'Desert Storm' Lukas defending his WBO Africa featherweight title against Mudde Rabisa from Uganda.

    The third title fight will be between Jeremiah 'No Respect' Nakathila and Said Chino from Tanzania.

    Tickets are available at Computicket. General tickets sell for N$200 while VIP tickets cost

    N$1 000.

    Basketball tournament launchedBasketball tournament launched The Namibia Basketball Federation (NBF), in collaboration with the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and the Namibia Sports Commission (NSC) and with a sponsorship from OTB, launched the 3x3 basketball tournament in Windhoek yesterday.

    OTB sponsored equipment to the tune of N$20 000 for the tournament, which aims to market the game and to encourage the youth to participate in local tournaments. The tournament will take place in the Oshana, Erongo and Khomas regions to officially recognise 3x3 basketball as an Olympic sport.

    Andrew Masongo, NBF president, said there had been an outcry from the public to introduce the game in Namibia and the launch was a milestone in the quest to create awareness and involvement of the public. He urged for more support in rolling the game out to more regions of the country.

    Ramah Mumba, NBF secretary-general, said they chose the three regions because of the availability of infrastructure to host the tournament.

    The 3X3 basketball tour will serve as trials to select the best under-18 boys' and girls' teams to represent the country in future championships.

    Kavango West to make a statement at Skorpion Zinc CupKavango West to make a statement at Skorpion Zinc Cup Kavango West will play their first game of the Skorpion Zinc under-17 Cup on Friday, against Hardap Region at the Sam Nujoma Stadium.

    The team's coach, Sikongo Kampumburu, says they will take the championship by storm this year.

    Kavango West are in Group C, together with Oshana, Hardap and Zambezi, and they will battle out for the exclusive top spot and a place in the semi-finals.

    According to coach Kampumburu, their training camp has been successful in improving the boys' fitness, developing tactics and introducing them to a new system that they plan on using.

    Kampumburu says although Kavango did not make it past the first stage of the tournament in previous years, the players are motivated by the fact that they are representing their new region and are targeting the semi-finals this time around.

    “I constantly tell them that the whole Kavango West depends on them to put our region on the map, so they should always play wholeheartedly. It's about time we make a statement. They should be ready for us,” Kampumburu said.

    The gates of the Sam Nujoma Stadium open at 09:00, as Omaheke and Kunene face off in Group A. Others in the group are defending champions Omusati, Otjozondjupa and Karas. Group B consists of Ohangwena, Kavango East, Oshikoto, Erongo and Khomas.

    Group A winners will face Group C winners in the semi-finals while Group B winners will face the best runners-up from Group A and B. Entrance is free. Matches will alternate between the Sam Nujoma Stadium and the NFA Technical Centre.

    England survive Slovakia scareEngland survive Slovakia scare Timo Werner scored a double in Germany's 6-0 rout of the Norwegians in Stuttgart to leave Joachim Loew's world champions with a perfect eight out of eight record atop Group C.

    But with second-placed Northern Ireland beating the Czech Republic 2-0 in Belfast Germany will have to wait until their next match, away to the Irish on October 5, to seal automatic qualification to Russia.

    Werner, booed by his own fans in Germany's 2-1 win in Prague against the Czechs last Friday, came off to a standing ovation this time after netting in the 21st and 40th minutes.

    After struggling to beat the Czechs, this was a far more polished performance, with Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil's 10th minute opener sparking the rout.

    Paris Saint-Germain star Julian Draxler netted the second with Werner's brace putting them four goals up at the break.

    Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka grabbed Germany's fifth with Werner's replacement, the 32-year-old veteran Mario Gomez, rounding off a productive night.

    It was the perfect antidote after Friday's laboured trip to Prague marred by a group of 200 right-wing German fans chanting Nazi-era slogans.

    The Northern Irish guaranteed themselves at least a place in the play-offs thanks to Jonny Evans' second international goal eight years after his first and his West Bromwich Albion teammate Chris Brunt's 41st minute freekick.

    Manager Michael O'Neill praised his men after yet another solid defensive display.

    At Wembley, England were stunned when Stanislav Lobotka gave Slovakia a third-minute lead after a costly error by Marcus Rashford.

    But the 19-year-old atoned in style when setting up the equaliser for Eric Dier and then netting a sumptuous 20-yard winner in the second half.

    Women’s Chess Championships a successWomen’s Chess Championships a successJunior cyclists in good shape Two Namibians will compete in the team time trial on 17 September and the Road Race on 24 September. Schalk van der Merwe and Pierre du Plooy will represent Namibia at the World Cycling Championships in Bergen, Norway, from 17 to 24 September.

    Team manager and coach Bonnie du Plooy says the riders are in good shape and will give a good account of themselves.

    “The boys have been putting in a lot of hours in their training every day and I am sure they will do well,” he told Nampa on Monday.

    Du Plooy added that the young riders recently competed at the Tour de Windhoek where they fared well, and competing abroad would give them more exposure for international competitions.

    Van der Merwe, who finished 23rd at the Tour de Windhoek, said main goal at the championships was to gain experience that would help him qualify for the third edition of the Youth Olympic Games set for Buenos Aires, Argentina, in August 2018.

    Pierre said he was focusing on the time trial.

    “I know it is going to be tough in Norway but I have prepared myself well and I will not be fazed by the competition as I want to prove to myself how well I can do at international competitions,” he said.

    Pierre said he finished 18th at the Youth Commonwealth Games; just three seconds behind the winning group, and ended 22nd at the Tour de Windhoek; just three seconds behind the rider who finished sixth.

    Hyundai hit by supply disruptionHyundai hit by supply disruptionChina bears brunt, one plant halted Despite Hyundai's supply woes, three other plants are said to be operational. South Korea's Hyundai Motor said it had suspended production at one of its factories in China yesterday after a supplier refused to provide parts due to delays in payment - its second such incident in as many weeks.

    Frayed relations with suppliers to its venture with BAIC Motor Corp Limited are adding to headaches for Hyundai in China, where it has seen sales slump due to diplomatic tensions between the two nations and fierce competition from local brands.

    Supplier sources familiar with the matter and analysts say that BAIC is in charge of payments and has been responsible for the delays.

    Hyundai declined to comment on the reason for the failure to pay suppliers. A representative for BAIC could not be immediately reached for comment.

    Their joint venture had only just resumed production at four China plants on August 30 after a suspension of about a week because one French supplier refused to provide fuel tanks due to non-payment.

    This time, a German firm has refused to provide parts for air intake systems, a representative for Hyundai said, declining to identify the supplier. The joint venture's three other Chinese factories remain operational.

    Any loss of production from this one factory is unlikely to have a major sales impact as Hyundai probably has sufficient inventory at the plant because its cars have not been selling well, said Ko Tae-bong, an analyst at Hi Investment & Securities.

    “That is manageable. But if Hyundai's Chinese partner is refusing to make payments, that's a different story,” he said, adding that the issue could occur time and time again.

    Scrambling to tackle problems in China, Hyundai said this week it had appointed a new head for its China operations. Tao Hung Than, who is of Chinese descent, took the helm effective Friday replacing Chang Won-shin, who lasted less than a year in the job.

    The new China CEO, however, has a huge task in front of him if he is going to get Hyundai back on track in the world's biggest auto market - one that accounted for nearly a quarter of Hyundai's revenue in the last financial year.

    A weakening brand image and a product line-up without attractive SUVs are only adding to pain from diplomatic tensions. Hyundai's sales from its Chinese factories plummeted 64% in April-June first quarter, when the automaker posted its smallest quarterly net profit in five years.

    South Korean firms have been hit by a Chinese backlash over Seoul's decision to deploy a U.S. missile defence system to counter threats from nuclear-armed North Korea. China says the system poses a threat to its national security.

    Hyundai and BAIC were also due to start operations at a fifth China car factory late last month but the timetable has been pushed back. Hyundai has declined to comment on the postponement.

    Shares in Hyundai fell as much as 2.1% to their lowest level in more than four months on Tuesday and have declined 4.9% since the first reports of the supply disruptions emerged a week ago.

    Oceana expects decrease in EPSOceana expects decrease in EPS Oceana expects a dip in its earnings after expectations from the group was that its earnings per share will show a decline ahead of the results of its full-year results.

    Basic earnings per share (EPS) for the year ending 30 September 2017 compared to the year ending 30 September 2016, the comparative period, are expected to decrease between 35% and 50% based on prevailing market conditions, to between 511 cents per share and 393 cents per share, according to Oceana.

    “Basic headline earnings per share (HEPS) for the year ending 30 September 2017 are expected to decrease between 35% and 50% based on prevailing market conditions, to between 457 cents per share and 352 cents per share (30 September 2016: 703 cents per share) compared to the comparative period,” Oceana said in a SENS announcement.

    The group said the decline was as a result of losses on foreign exchange contracts and a strengthening of the rand, among other factors listed.

    “The decrease in EPS and HEPS is largely as a result of the following major factors and include softer global markets for fishmeal and fish oil, losses on foreign exchange contracts held to cover the import of frozen fish, the effect of an 8% average strengthening in the rand on foreign earnings and lower canned fish sales volumes from slow consumer demand,” Oceana said.

  • 09/05/17--15:00: MTC on sale campaign
  • MTC on sale campaignMTC on sale campaign The envisioned MTC 081Every1 Project is well on track, judging by the number of new feature phones and smartphones sold during the week long Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair.

    More than 4 600 units, which ranged from basic feature phones to high-end smartphones such as the Huawei P9 and P9 Lite, were bought during the fair.

    The cheapest phone on offer was the Mint F1 at a price of N$170. Basic feature phones, often referred to as 'Okatoshe', proved to be popular, accounting for nearly half the sales at the fair.

    Feature phones are lower-cost devices with more limited functionality than their smart rivals, but have a longer battery life.

    “The second phase of the strategy was therefore the 100% population network coverage or the 081Every1 project, which we launched in July, which will provide 3G and in some instances 4G network access to rural Namibia.

    “So as the country's economy and access keep growing, smartphones are going to be a very important place for investment and innovation,” MTC executive Tim Ekandjo said.

    Nujoma opens Kashuupulwa growth centreNujoma opens Kashuupulwa growth centre Founding President Sam Nujoma has called on all Namibians to unite and work hard to bring about genuine economic independence so that the whole nation can enjoy the fruits of independence.

    Nujoma made the call at Oshikondiilongo village in the Okatana Constituency, where he officially inaugurated the Clemens Handuukeme Kashuupulwa Growth Centre on Monday.

    Members of the local community put resources together to establish the centre and resolved to name it after the first councillor of their constituency and now governor of the Oshana Region, Clemens Kashuupulwa.

    Now that the country is independent, Nujoma said, the economic struggle will require the same sacrifices and selflessness that the brave sons and daughters of Namibia made during the struggle for its political independence.

    “Our economic emancipation will also require our countrymen and women to forget about selfish ambitions and instant wealth accumulation,” the retired Namibian statesman noted.

    He also urged the nation to keep the spirit of patriotism and nationalism alive in order to continue developing the country and emulate the legacy of the heroes and heroines of the liberation struggle.

    By doing so, Nujoma believes, citizens will be able to carry the torch of freedom forward and take the nation to greater heights.

    “Let us remain united as one Namibia, one nation. As I always say, a people united, striving to achieve a common good for all members of the society, will always emerge victorious,” Nujoma concluded.

    The Clemens Handuukeme Kashuupulwa Growth Centre serves mostly the communities of Oshikondiilongo and Omulathitu villages.

    It consists of a mahangu processing plant, elderly pension-pay out shelter and the Swapo branch office.

  • 09/05/17--15:00: US climate stance slammed
  • US climate stance slammedUS climate stance slammedChina's Xi Jinping speaks out Chinese president Xi Jinping has come out in stern opposition to the United States' stance on climate change under the Trump presidency. Chinese president Xi Jinping yesterday warned that the world economy faces growing risks and uncertainties from countries turning inward on trade and resisting combating climate change, delivering an implicit rebuke to his American counterpart, Donald Trump.

    Xi didn't refer to the United States by name, although Trump has said trade pacts are a threat to American jobs and decided to pull the US out of the Paris agreement on climate change.

    “Multilateral trade negotiations are having a difficult time. The implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change is encountering resistance,” Xi told leaders of emerging economies and developing countries.

    The agreement under which countries set their own national plans for cutting climate emissions went into effect in November.

    “Some countries have become more inward-looking and less willing to take part in international cooperation, and the spill-overs of their policy adjustments are deepening,” he said during a summit of BRICS nations, comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

    Xi's criticism came at the opening of a dialogue between the leaders of BRICS countries and five other developing nations invited to take part in the discussions on the sidelines of the summit in the southeastern Chinese city of Xiamen.

    On Monday's opening day of the summit, the BRICS countries called for reform of the United Nations and tougher measures against terrorist groups, while denouncing North Korea's latest nuclear test.

    The five also pledged their opposition to protectionism, a theme increasingly taken up by Xi despite what critics say are substantial barriers to foreign investment in key Chinese sectors such as electricity generation and telecommunications.

    Slight downtick in diamond salesSlight downtick in diamond sales De Beers reported a slight decrease in rough diamonds sold in its seventh cycle, a situation it attributed to a watchful approach taken by buyers.

    “As expected, rough diamond sales were somewhat lower in the seventh cycle of the year, with some midstream demand having already been brought forward into Cycle 6 due to Diwali being earlier than normal in 2017.

    “Businesses in the diamond industry's midstream segment are adopting a watchful approach as attention now turns to the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair in mid-September,” said the CEO of the De Beers group, Bruce Cleaver.
