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. Namibians will now be able to travel to Southern African Development Community countries with the new-look identity document cards without carrying passports. The urban and rural development minister Erastus Uutoni encouraged local authority councillors to concentrate more on land delivery instead of fighting each other, as it hinders the progress of housing delivery. The chairperson of the Namibian Association of Local Authority Officers (NALAO) and the chief executive of the Otjiwarongo municipality Moses Matyayi says the divestment of the electricity sector from local authorities has made the latter suffer. The Namibia Meteorological Service (NMS) says most parts of the country will receive normal to above-normal rainfall during the 2021/2022 rainy seasons. Three weeks after the mysterious disappearance of fraud accused fugitive Walter ‘Rooies’ Mostert, who escaped from custody early this month after a court appearance, the police are none the wiser about his whereabouts.
