    Nehale, Okatana victorious in final FNB Classic ClashesNehale, Okatana victorious in final FNB Classic Clashes Over the past weekend the final two soccer matches of the 2017 FNB Classic Clashes were played in the North.

    Nehale Secondary School met Ongha Secondary School on a hot and windy day, while Haudano and Okatana Secondary Schools kicked off on 9 September over lunchtime.

    In the first game on 8 September, Nehale Secondary School beat the visiting team of Ongha Secondary School with 2-0 goals, which was also the halftime score.

    Both teams gave it their best, but it was the host team, Nehale, who emerged victorious. The well-rounded woman of Nehale Secondary School, Martha Nelondo, was crowned Vigo Hero, while Nehale's goalkeeper, Thomas Nghipandulwa, was the Man of the Match.

    In the second game of the weekend Okatana Secondary School managed to score their first win in five years of taking part in the FNB Classic Clashes with a 5 - 1 win after penalty shootouts.

    Eliuda Haufiku of Haudano Secondary School was named Vigo Hero, while Thomas Shikongo of Okatana Secondary School was crowned the FNB Man of the Match.

    “We look back at a successful 2017 FNB Classic Clashes season and thank everyone for their hard work, dedication and awesome sportsmanship. It was a wonderful season and we look forward to 2018 when it will be game on again,” said Gordon Pokolo, sponsorship manager of FNB Namibia.

    Rampant Man City ready to march on FeyenoordRampant Man City ready to march on FeyenoordStamping authority Manchester City will open the hunt for Champions League glory against Feyenoord in Rotterdam today. Pep Guardiola's rampant Manchester City will be keen to keep the momentum going as they open the hunt for Champions League glory against a diminished Feyenoord.

    After mauling Liverpool 5-0 in the Premier League on Saturday, City now travel to face the Dutch champions who face a daunting prospect after a 15-year absence from the group stage of the competition.

    Eyes in particular will be on City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, whose sublime form played a major part in the Liverpool drubbing and who is sure to sniff out and exploit weaknesses in Feyenoord's midfield and defence. Feyenoord may have beaten Heracles 4-2 in a Dutch top-flight match over the weekend, but their opponents came dangerously close to scoring more goals, a fact no doubt that will play on coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst's mind.

    The Rotterdam club faced a further blow up front after leading striker Nicolai Jorgensen came off with a leg muscle injury 21 minutes into the Heracles game. The 26-year-old Danish international, last year's Eredivisie top scorer with 21 goals in 32 games will not play in the City match which opens their Group F campaign, Feyenoord announced on Monday.

    With Jorgensen out, former Dutch skipper and Arsenal midfielder Van Bronckhorst will now have to draw on every ounce of Premier League experience if he is to try and outfox Guardiola's team. City have spent more than £200 million ($264 million, 219 million euros) over the summer strengthening their squad after losing to Monaco in the last 16 last season.

    De Bruyne told British media on Monday: “The guys who have come in have a very physical quality; they are very strong, very pacy. They make the pitch big, that is a quality of them and it is difficult for the other teams.”

    Meanwhile, Feyenoord winger Steven Berghuis said he expected it to be a tough night for the hosts, European Cup winners in 1970. “It's going to be tough to stay standing against this club (Manchester City),” Berghuis told daily tabloid De Telegraaf. “The only thing we can do is to try to make them pay a price and play a game with lots of energy.” The odds overwhelmingly favour a City win, although the last time they visited Dutch soil they lost 3-1 to Ajax in the group stage in 2012. The match will be played at the daunting De Kuip (The Tub) stadium in front of thousands of fanatical Feyenoord fans called “The Legion”.

    Some hardcore Feyenoord supporters have built up a reputation as troublemakers, getting involved in skirmishes with the law and fans of other clubs. In February 2015, drunken Feyenoord fans trashed Rome's famous Piazza di Spagna ahead of a Europa League clash. Earlier this year, police arrested dozens of Feyenoord supporters who rioted after losing to local club Excelsior, preventing them from becoming Dutch champions on the day. Although no trouble is expected today, Rotterdam police said they “will be ready to deal with various situations, should it be needed.”

    Ayew gives West Ham's Bilic birthday cheerAyew gives West Ham's Bilic birthday cheer Pedro Obiang and Andre Ayew scored to give West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic the perfect 49th birthday present as the Hammers beat Huddersfield Town 2-0 in the Premier League on Monday.

    Obiang got the opener via an enormous deflection and Bilic then pumped the air in relief as much as delight when Ghanaian star Ayew pounced to add the second as West Ham claimed their first points of the season.

    Defeat to Huddersfield would have left the charismatic Croat in real danger of becoming the second managerial casualty of the season, after Frank de Boer was fired by pointless Crystal Palace on Monday. “We started with three away games (they couldn't play at home until the London Stadium was re-adapted after the World Athletics Championships) and three defeats and this was a must-win game,” Bilic told Sky Sports.

    “I feel the pressure for a whole year now. It is maybe not logical for me to be under pressure after three games but it is modern football.

    “It is my birthday today and this is a great, great present for me.”

    For Huddersfield it was their first reverse and the first goals they had conceded of what has been an impressive start to life among the elite.

    A match big on commitment but poor in quality had seen West Ham, with Andy Carroll back in attack after a thigh injury, go close twice in a first half they dominated.

    Mexico striker Javier Hernandez was denied by the crossbar while Jonas Loessl got down to smother the ball on the line from James Collins' header after 22 minutes.

    However, the hosts deservedly went ahead 18 minutes from time with a piece of luck that had deserted them in their previous three league games.

    Obiang's shot looked to be going wide but took a significant deflection off Mathias Jorgensen and gave Loessl no chance, the goalkeeper desperately trying to make up ground but left flailing at the ball.

    There was no luck involved in the second as Ayew, who had been sent on as a substitute, took advantage of a Huddersfield defender failing to clear the ball from a corner and tucked it away.

    Huddersfield responded gamely with Tom Ince hitting the crossbar but they never threatened to spoil Bilic's party.

    All Blacks expect tough test from resurgent SpringboksAll Blacks expect tough test from resurgent Springboks New Zealand is expecting a vintage challenge from a resurgent South Africa side in their top-of-the-table Rugby Championship encounter in Auckland on Saturday.

    All Blacks-Springboks clashes are always among the highlights of the test season but the rivalry lost some of its edge last year after the world champions won 41-13 at home and 57-15 in Durban.

    South Africa have rebounded from their miserable 2016, however, and go into Saturday's match at North Harbour stadium only three points behind the All Blacks after a 23-23 draw with Australia at the weekend.

    “We all know the way the South Africans play,” All Blacks lock Brodie Retallick told local media on Monday.

    “We've seen the last couple of weeks how physical they've been, especially up front. As always, they're big boys and they like to come at you.

    “Every test is special, but from what we've seen so far in the Rugby Championship, they've had two great wins over Argentina and they'll be a little bit frustrated with the draw against Australia in Perth.

    “They'll be coming here with a bit of anger and with the skill and physicality they're playing with, I'm sure it's going to be a good spectacle.”

    South Africa coach Allister Coetzee said at the weekend he was disappointed with the draw, if proud of the way his side battled back from 10 points down early in the second half to remain unbeaten in six tests this year.

    He was also encouraged by the way Argentina managed to put pressure on the All Blacks in the first 60 minutes of their defeat last weekend in New Plymouth.

    “I don't see any weaknesses in the All Black side,” Coetzee told reporters in New Zealand on Monday.

    “I think they are vulnerable but you still have to be at your best to exploit that.

    “They have obviously stepped up when they have needed to. You cannot afford to lose concentration or focus. In the last 20 minutes they can easily score 20 points.”

    All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has been experimenting with his side so it remains to be seen if the Springboks will have to contend with rookie flanker Vaea Fifita, who burned the Pumas defence to score a try in his first test start last Saturday.

    “We've got some pretty quick loosies in this team, but that was just awesome to see him go out and take his opportunity like that,” said All Blacks centre Ryan Crotty.

    Madrid remain League favouritesMadrid remain League favouritesClub cashes in on transfers Such is Real Madrid's confidence in creating more Champions League history that while others have spent hundreds of millions trying to catch up, the back-to-back European champions were happy to cash in. Real made a profit of over 75 million euros (U$90 million) in the transfer market thanks to the departures of Alvaro Morata, James Rodriguez and Danilo.

    Yet they remain very much the side to beat as the Champions League returns, having ended a near three-decade long wait for a team to retain the trophy.

    “We are the champions so everyone faces us with extra motivation,” warned former Real striker Emilio Butragueno, now the club's director of institutional relations.

    Madrid coped with that challenge admirably last season, dismissing Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid and Juventus in the latter stages.

    Their quest to become the first side since Bayern in the mid-seventies to win three in a row starts with a more modest test in the form of APOEL Nicosia at the Santiago Bernabeu today.

    Tougher tasks lie in wait in the form of Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur in Group H.

    Dortmund even beat Madrid to top spot in the group stage last season. But Real have mastered the art of saving their best for when the competition really gets going for the contenders in the knockout stages in the new year. Real's strength in depth was used intelligently by coach Zinedine Zidane to win the club's first La Liga and European Cup double for 59 years last season.

    It is also why one of the richest clubs in the world didn't feel the need to go wild in a hyper-inflated transfer market following Neymar's world record 222 million-euro move to Paris Saint-Germain.

    Instead, Real continued their policy of snapping up the best young talent in Spain in Theo Hernandez and Dani Ceballos to add to the likes of Isco and Marco Asensio.

    Despite a slow start to their campaign in La Liga, Zidane already seems to be playing the long game this season.

    The Frenchman rested a host of first-team regulars including Luka Modric, Isco and Gareth Bale on their return from international duty for a disappointing 1-1 draw against Levante on Saturday.

    “I am not going to revolutionise what I want to do with this team due to one bad game,” Zidane insisted afterwards.

    Real will be bolstered for the visit of the Cypriot champions in midweek by the return of Cristiano Ronaldo.

    The World Player of the Year's absence due to a five-game domestic ban for pushing a referee has exposed the one flaw in Real's squad in a lack of back-up to Karim Benzema.

    Having not replaced Morata, Bale was forced to act as an auxiliary striker against Levante after Benzema went off injured.

    Yet even an enforced rest for Ronaldo could ultimately work in Real's favour come the end of the campaign.

    The Portuguese scored 10 goals from the quarter-finals on last season as Zidane's rotation policy left him far fresher and freer of injuries than in previous years.

    With a fit Ronaldo come the knockout stages, Real will remain the team to beat as the rest of Europe tries to end their hegemony.

  • 09/12/17--15:00: Illicit cash flows worrisome
  • Illicit cash flows worrisomeIllicit cash flows worrisomeSA's Gigaba asks for help on tax front South African tax practitioners have been asked to help the government combat illicit financial flows and money-laundering. Finance minister Malusi Gigaba has urged South African tax practitioners to assist the government in combating corruption, money-laundering and illicit financial flows which deprive taxpayers of their deserved benefits.

    Gigaba said tax revenues kept South Africa running, paying for social upliftment and poverty alleviation through grants and the multitude of services that the government provides, much of which benefits the most vulnerable in society.

    Gigaba was speaking at the South African Institute of Tax Practitioners' Tax Indaba in Johannesburg on Monday.

    “We encourage you as tax professionals to help us send the message that individuals and businesses should obey the law, disclose their offshore assets, and pay their fair share, before they are caught out,” Gigaba said.

    “Unfortunately, as long as taxpayers either remain non-compliant or move to reduce their tax burdens, there will need to be corresponding tax policy amendments to uphold the integrity of the tax system.”

    Gigaba said the positive actions of business, labour, communities and individuals would be vital in setting the country on an improved growth path for the benefit of all citizens.

    He spoke strongly against corporates involved in illicit financial flows, saying the government would ensure that they paid their fair share of the taxes.

    “Action must also be taken to ensure corporates pay their fair share, which we are attempting to address through measures such as those which are currently proposed to stop the use of share buybacks and dividend stripping to avoid capital gains tax,” Gigaba said.

    “An area we will increasingly devote attention to is arresting illicit financial flows. Several studies including former president Thabo Mbeki's High-Level Panel on Illicit Financial Flows, reports by Global Financial Integrity and the Panama Papers, demonstrate how African countries lose billions of dollars per year to trade mispricing, illegal offshoring by the wealthy for tax evasion, as well as by criminals and corrupt persons.”

    Gigaba said the development imperative for the government was the need for domestic resource mobilisation, meaning the need for African countries to finance their own development.

    He said the government tried to consult the public on tax policy changes and welcomed the oversight that parliament provided.

    Chinese premier pledges against currency devaluationChinese premier pledges against currency devaluation The world economy is showing positive signs but is still fragile and countries should rely on structural reforms, not quantitative easing, to support growth, Chinese premier Li Keqiang said yesterday.

    Li, who met with the heads of global bodies, including International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde and World Bank president Jim Yong Kim in Beijing, said that countries should maintain free trade. “There are increased positive factors in the global economy and signs of warming-up in some aspects. But at the same time, the fragility persists and unstable and uncertain factors are still increasing,” Li told a joint news conference with the heads of international agencies.

    “Free trade is a good medicine for resolving problems. Through free trade, we can resolve many problems in the difficult recovery, help companies transform and give consumers more choices,” he said.

    Turning to China, Li said the economy would remain steady and continue to improve.

    China's economy grew a stronger-than-expected 6.9% in the first half, defying expectations of a slowdown and putting the country on pace to easily meet its growth target of around 6.5%. “Based on the growth trend in recent months, the economy will continue to maintain the trend seen in the first half,” Li said.

    He also addressed China's high leverage ratio, which has been the focus of a campaign by policymakers to control risks.

    China's leverage has stabilised and has even shown some declines, Li said. Li also reiterated China's pledge not to resort to competitive currency devaluation.

    At the official local close on Monday, the onshore spot yuan had gained around 6.5% so far this year, about the same percentage loss it suffered in 2016.

    The global economy is recovering, but could easily be derailed by policy uncertainty and the threat of protectionism, IMF chief Lagarde told the same briefing.

    Britain pushes Boeing to drop Bombardier challengeBritain pushes Boeing to drop Bombardier challenge Britain is pressing for US plane maker Boeing to drop its trade challenge against Canadian rival Bombardier and seek a negotiated settlement to try to protect jobs at a plant in Northern Ireland, its business ministry said.

    British prime minister Theresa May also raised the issue in a call earlier this month to US president Donald Trump, after Boeing complained earlier this year that Bombardier was dumping passenger jets on the US market.

    Bombardier is Northern Ireland's largest manufacturing employer.

    “Ministers across government have engaged swiftly and extensively with Boeing, Bombardier, the US and Canadian governments. Our priority is to encourage Boeing to drop its case and seek a negotiated settlement with Bombardier,” a government spokesman said in a statement on Monday.

    “This is a commercial matter but the UK government is working tirelessly to safeguard Bombardier's operations and its highly skilled workers in Belfast.”

    Telecom introduces new data packageTelecom introduces new data package In a quest to stand strong in the market, Telecom Namibia has announced new packs offering unlimited calling and internet.

    The unlimited value packs are exclusive for Telecom Namibia's new post-paid residential customers and offer unlimited voice calling to the company's fixed and mobile networks and to anywhere in Namibia.

    For the first time, fixed-line customers are now able to get unlimited and unrestricted data and unlimited Telecom Namibia voice calls for free. This includes calls to over 360 500 Telecom Namibia's fixed and mobile numbers countrywide.

    In addition, customers will also receive at least 300 free minutes per month to make calls to any other mobile networks.

    Telecom Namibia unlimited voice calls and data value packs come under four price points starting N$749, offering the best value for money and suitable for the needs of different customers.

    Explaining the perks, Isak Ouseb, acting chief commercial officer, said: “If a customer pays up each month for any of the value packs then he or she will also get unlimited data benefits with no fair usage policy (FUP) limit.”

    Ouseb said the packs, which are competitively priced by global standards, would open new unlimited voice calling, surfing, streaming and downloading opportunities for customers for a standard monthly cost.

    He said the benefit to customers was not only the unlimited internet access and unlimited calls to Telecom's fixed and mobile networks, but there was a lot of savings on voice calls and a predetermined monthly bill.

    “Our customers want more affordable voice and data bundles and that is what we are giving them. We are reducing the cost to communicate and making the internet more accessible. They also need freedom to communicate conveniently and cost-effectively,” he said.

    “Our latest unlimited packs extend our commitment to affordability to our fixed-line residential customers. We are at the forefront of reducing communication costs and Telecom Namibia has taken another big step to making both the voice calling and internet more accessible,” Ouseb said.

    OKFD evaluates all aspects of a leading retail store including growth, customer service, staff, service departments, displays, administrative excellence and even community involvement.

    Being selected as a nominee is testimony that Jose Machado has achieved these benchmarks and raised the bar amidst economic turbulence and rife retail competition.

    “It is a fantastic feeling to know, that after 16 years you are still on the right track. To see the same clients visit our store on a weekly basis is a confirmation of loyalty.

    Winners of the Franchisee of the Year Awards will be announced at the annual OKFD Conference to be held in Saint Petersburg, Russia in October 2017. Machado is a prime example of an entrepreneur who strives for retail excellence and a worthy brand ambassador.

    Bitcoin not recognised by BoNBitcoin not recognised by BoNUse of digital currency at own risk The Bank of Namibia has discouraged the use of the cryptocurrency bitcoin. The Bank of Namibia (BoN)has finally expressed its position on bitcoin, saying that it does not recognise the popular cryptocurrency which was first introduced in 2009.

    “The bank wishes to advice all stakeholders that it does not consider virtual currencies as legal tender in Namibia. Virtual currencies are therefore not to be considered equivalent to the Namibian currency,” BoN spokesperson Kazembire Zemburuka said.

    While not stopping the use of bitcoin, Zemburuka stressed that people using the currency do it at their own risk.

    “Trading in virtual currencies is not regulated in Namibia and thus individuals that engage in such trading would be doing so at their own risk. Virtual currencies are considered unsafe and thus individuals that engage in such trading would be doing so at their own risk,” said Zemburuka.

    According to him, users of virtual currencies should also be aware of risks related to money-laundering and the financing of terrorism when trading in virtual currencies.

    The central bank however welcomed the possible benefits of distributed ledger technologies, which it said may hold positive benefits.

    “The Bank of Namibia recognises the potential positive impact that distributed ledger technologies might have in Namibia and, as such, intends to conduct further research on the possible uses for such technologies,” he said.

    The central bank defined distributed ledgers as a database that is consensually shared and synchronised across networks, spread across multiple sites, institutions or geographies.

    The central bank, Zemburuka said, would monitor the use of virtual currencies and possible impacts on monetary policy, price stability and the demand for money.

    Bitcoin tumbled the most since July after China's central bank said initial coin offerings (ICO's) were illegal and asked all related fundraising activity to be halted immediately, issuing the strongest regulatory challenge so far to the burgeoning market for digital token sales.

    The People's Bank of China said on its website on Monday that it had completed investigations into ICOs, and would strictly punish offerings in the future while penalising legal violations in ones already completed.

    The regulator said that those who had already raised money must provide refunds, though it didn't specify how the money would be paid back to investors.

    It also said digital token financing and trading platforms were prohibited from doing conversions of coins with fiat currencies. Digital tokens can't be used as currency on the market and banks are forbidden from offering services to initial coin offerings.

    “This is somewhat in step with, maybe not to the same extent, what we're starting to see in other jurisdictions – the short story is we all know regulations are coming,” said Jehan Chu, managing partner at Kenetic Capital in Hong Kong, which invests in and advises on token sales.

    “China, due to its size and as one of the most speculative Initial Public Offering (IPO) markets, needed to take a firmer action.”

    Bitcoin tumbled as much as 11.4%, the most since July, to US$4 326.75. The ethereum cryptocurrency was down more than 16 percent Monday, according to data from Coindesk.

    ICOs are digital token sales that have seen unchecked growth over the past year, raising US$1.6 billion. They have been deemed a threat to China's financial market stability as authorities struggle to tame financing channels that sprawl beyond the traditional banking system. Widely seen as a way to sidestep venture capital funds and investment banks, they have also increasingly captured the attention of central banks that see in the fledgling trend a threat to their reign.

    DBN raises N$291 million on JSEDBN raises N$291 million on JSEDebt listing over-subscribed The listing of an instrument on the JSE forms part of the DBN's medium-term note programme worth N$2.5 billion. The Development Bank of Namibia raised N$291 million from its medium-term note programme.

    The medium-term note programme, worth N$2.5 billion, is part of the bank's strategy to diversify its source of funding and raise money on the market for on-lending to financially viable, environmental and socially acceptable projects with developmental impact in line with the bank's business plan.

    In a media statement issued on Wednesday, DBN spokesperson Di-Anna Grobler said the three-year bond (DBN20) was issued through an oversubscribed auction process that was held on 30 August 2017.

    Grobler explained that the bond pays a floating rate coupon quarterly which is linked to the Johannesburg Interbank Average (JIBAR) Rate and is expected to mature in September 2020.

    “This marks the first time that the bank has formally approached Namibian capital markets to raise funding, which the bank will issue regularly in the markets depending on the future cash flow requirements,” said Grobler.

    About 26 staggered bidders from 13 investors in Namibia and South Africa supported and oversubscribed.

    The total subscription amounted to N$428 million, of which DBN has issued N$291 million at a spread of 190 basis points over the current JIBAR rate.

    The bank planned to raise between N$200 to N$300 million on its debut bond issue.

    Grobler said DBN has been well capitalised over the years by its sole shareholder, the government, although the bank has recognised the need to leverage its unencumbered balance sheet.

    Kavango East to strengthen relations with ZimbabweKavango East to strengthen relations with Zimbabwe The Kavango East Region is expected to enter into an agreement with Zimbabwe's Mashonaland West province for mutual cooperation in various spheres of development.

    An agreement is expected to be signed soon in this regard.

    The governor of Kavango East, Samuel Mbambo, told Nampa that the agreement was being drafted.

    “We cannot sign a MoU without having the blessings of cabinet. It is just a draft which we both looked at and worked out and each one will take a draft to its own government to go through the process as it is usually done,” said Mbambo.

    The two parties intend to sign agreement to foster and promote the existing relationship they have.

    The parties intend to cooperate in good regional and local governance, exchange technical expertise and capacity building in areas such as financial management, research and development, information technology, waste water management, solid management and strategic planning.

    The parties would also like to cooperate on food security, forestry, water management and environmental friendly practices as well as in trade investment activities and socio-cultural exchange.

    Mbambo took a 35-member delegation to Mashonaland in June this year to establish areas of cooperation in agriculture.

  • 09/12/17--15:00: Zim pre-poll violence up
  • Zim pre-poll violence upZim pre-poll violence upNew report says Zanu-PF is responsible In the run-up to the 2018 election in Zimbabwe, violence has increased markedly with 745 injured in August alone. Politically motivated violence has reportedly flared up in Zimbabwe in recent months, as the southern African nation gears up for presidential polls in 2018, a report says.

    According to Bloomberg, a rights group, The Zimbabwe Peace Projects, claimed that at least 745 people were attacked in August alone, up from 435 in July.

    The group alleged that about 94% of the attacks were carried out by the ruling Zanu-PF party and the country's security forces.

    “The nature of the human-rights violations, mainly politically motivated violence, makes disturbing reading,” the head of the group, Jestina Mukoko was quoted saying.

    She added that the attacks pointed “to a festering culture of political intolerance that potentially spells trouble for the 2018 elections”.

    This came a few days after a study by Research Advocacy Unit (RAU) said that Zimbabwe was the worst violent post-independence country in Africa, according to New Zimbabwe.com.

    The study said that this was not at all shocking as the southern African country's post-independence elections had been marred by violence since 1980, with the 1985 polls being arguably the worst.

    The report titled 'Zimbabwe since the elections in July 2013: The view from 2017' noted a pattern of violence and intimidation under President Robert Mugabe's rule.

    “Of the elections held since 2000, some have been very violent, 2000, 2002, and 2008 whilst the others 2005 and 2013 have been marked by more intimidation rather than having high levels of overt violence,” the RAU study was cited as saying.

    The study indicated that the upcoming 2018 polls could be the most violent in the country's recent history due to Zanu-PF factional fights.

    In the meanwhile, Zimbabwe's Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party has urged the registrar-general's office to consider issuing free identity documents (IDs) to poor Zimbabweans ahead of the 2018 general elections, says a report.

    According to New Zimbabwe, the Morgan Tsvangirai led party said that it was only fair that poor Zimbabweans be issued with the new identity cards for free, as many of them were not able to pay the US$10 (N$ 130) required to acquire them.

    MDC spokesperson Obert Gutu said that his party was not going to accept anything less than free IDs for the poor.

    “No eligible Zimbabwean citizen should be denied a national ID simply because he/she is too poor to pay for the acquisition of such an important document. Similarly, no eligible Zimbabwean citizen should be denied his/her constitutional right to register as a voter simply because they couldn't acquire the relevant national ID,” Gutu was quoted as saying.

    Native applicants were required to pay US$10 while aliens are expected to fork out US$50 (N$ 647) to obtain the IDs.



    Fresh voter registration

    Gutu's sentiments came less than two weeks after the MDC called on the country's registrar-general Tobaiwa Mudede to ensure that the three months national mobile registration exercise for national identity cards, birth and death certificates in preparation for voter registration was carried out fairly across the country.

    The new national Identity Documents registration was expected to run from 4 September to 30 November.

    But, according to the report, Mudede's announcement contradicted the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission's (ZEC) proclamation early this year.

    The electoral body announced that it was going to roll out a fresh voter registration exercise, removing Mudede from administering the election process.

    In light of the announcement, Gutu said it was important that the exercise reached even the most rural places in the country to ensure that all Zimbabweans eligible to register to vote were able to do so.

    “On numerous occasions, Zimbabweans, particularly those who live in urban areas, have complained about the long delays in queues for voter registration, which state of affairs has unfortunately contributed to voter apathy in these areas. The planned national mobile registration exercise should, thus, be designed in such a manner that no eligible person would fail to obtain the new machine – readable national ID,” said Gutu at the time.

  • 09/12/17--15:00: Charcoal's doing great
  • Charcoal's doing greatCharcoal's doing great The Namibia Charcoal Association (NCA) earlier last month held its annual conference with 260 delegates that attended the event near Otjiwarongo.

    According to the Namibia Agricultural Union, 16 exhibitors from supporting services and industries as well as 18 local and foreign charcoal buyers from as far as Germany, Cape Town, George and Durban attended.

    The chairperson of the NCA board of directors, Isak Katali, said that the charcoal association had big successes in their first year as an independent non-profit company. The members of the NCA increased to 490 and the Namibian charcoal industry currently is the fifth biggest exporter of charcoal in the world.

    Professor Joseph Diescho who was the keynote speaker at the event captured the delegates with his political knowledge of Namibia.

    He said that the time has come for Namibia, which he described as a zebra nation, to turn away from the past and to look towards the future.

    “We are neither a black Zebra with white stripes nor a white Zebra with black stripes. If you shoot a Zebra the whole animal is dead regardless whether the white or black stripe was hit.”

    He also referred to government's contemplated New Equitable Economic Empowerment Framework (NEEEF) legislation and said that “these are talks which only would make sense in a bar”. According to him Namibia is the country in Africa with the best racial relationships between black and white and the stability and peace which was brought about must be kept to bring about economic growth and progress.

    After the conference a demonstration of the new charcoal-burning technology, the so-called retort kiln, was given. Further research and tests must still be conducted with this system in the coming year and appreciation was expressed towards the GIZ and Ministry of Industrialisation, Trade and SME Development for their financial support in this regard.
