An expert says climate change is getting in the way of implementing national development plans aimed at the realisation of sustainable development goals. The Independent Patriots for Change (IPC) has defended its decision to name a member who was not initially part of the City of Windhoek’s 15-member candidate list submitted to the Electoral Commission of Namibia ahead of last year’s local authority election. Nudo’s Josef Kauandenge has resoundingly rejected the genocide pact between Namibia and Germany, saying the agreement was not negotiated in good faith between the two countries. Landless People’s Movement leader Bernadus Swartbooi has equated government’s genocide deal with chief Joseph Fredericks II being swindled by an “unscrupulous” German businessman in April 1883. The lack of capacity within the urban and rural development ministry, a moratorium on travel as well as some administrative lapses were outlined as major contributing factors to underspending within the ministry. !Nubusib ǂhanu mîǁguiga ǁaeb ai ūs dib, ministeris kai!ā tsî !garo!ā omkhâis ministeris !nâb, !nariǂoadi ǂnamipe ge ǀkhamaǀkhamahe ǁgaragu tsî noxopa ǀnî ǁhōn administrasis !âb !nâ hân ge dana !gomsin ase nē ministeris nî ǂnûiǂuisa marisa ǀorose sîsenū tsîs marisa mariǁhōn ministeris ǁga ge sî-oasa ge !aromase ge ǁgauǂuihe. Vice President Nangolo Mbumba has urged stakeholders in the country to fully support the work of the country review mission and actively participate in its deliberations for Namibia to receive a comprehensive report. Chairperson of the management committee of the City of Windhoek Ndeshihafela Larandja said the process of appointing a successful candidate for the position of CEO is still at an infant stage. Police at the weekend launched a manhunt for trial-awaiting former magistrate Walter ‘Rooies’ Mostert who escaped from custody on Friday afternoon following a court appearance. Health minister Kalumbi Shangula yesterday launched the African Union and Africa Centres for Disease Control (CDC) trusted travel system for the verification of Covid-19 test results and vaccination certificates. Despite the police launching a manhunt for trial-awaiting former magistrate Walter ‘Rooies’ Mostert, who escaped from custody on Friday afternoon following a court appearance, the accused is still at large, Khomas regional commander commissioner Ismael Basson confirmed. A young woman, who was on Saturday forced by her employer to strip off her uniform in full view of customers, is demanding compensation from her now former employer, saying she suffered humiliation. A47-year-old woman from Five Rand location in Okahandja, who sells vetkoek, kapana and oshikundu to feed her six children, is pleading for public assistance after her house was gutted by fire last Tuesday. A Windhoek-based police officer has been charged for allegedly aiding and abetting a trial-awaiting suspect to escape from custody. At least 1 008 out of about 52 000 beneficiaries of the Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund have made arrangements to pay back the money, the institution’s acting CEO Kennedy Kandume has said. Health minister Dr Kalumbi Shangula says although Covid-19 positive cases, hospitalisations and deaths are on a downward trend, Namibia is prepared for a possible future resurgence in cases as the numbers are picking up in especially European countries. Former health minister Dr Bernard Haufiku has warned the country is likely to face a “pandemic of the unvaccinated” if rising Covid-19 infections in Europe are anything to go by. The emergency care unit that was approved by Windhoek municipal council to cater for contagious disease infected patients, including Covid-19, has been delayed due to a lack of funds. An education system that does not meet the demands of the labour market, poor coordination of the institutional framework and historically structural weaknesses of the economy are among issues contributing to high youth unemployment in the country. The Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund acting CEO, Kennedy Kandume, said the institution has prioritised the payment of non-tuition fees.
