Namibia has recorded a significant increase in Covid-19 active cases over the past two weeks, with figures rising from 10 227 on 20 December 2021 to 14 819 recorded on 2 January 2022. Since the first detection of Covid-19 cases in March 2021 in Namibia, the pandemic has wreaked havoc in the tourism sector. Despite a sharp increase in positive cases and deaths as well as widespread misinformation that impacts the slow pace with which Namibians have taken up vaccination against the coronavirus, government has decided not to change to a more aggressive approach. While many believe the Omicron variant of the coronavirus has mild reactions, Namibian health authorities believe the variant is causing hospitalisation and deaths, especially in unvaccinated individuals. Schools have once again pleaded with parents to be more actively involved in their children’s school career and maintain constant communication with the school to keep track of their children’s academic performances. Financial services provider Letshego has issued an ultimatum to employees: Get vaccinated by 31 January 2022 or you will be barred from entering the company’s premises. Society can be mean, unfair, and judgemental, knowing full well of the damage the comments can have on a person’s mental wellbeing and the sad part is no one is spared from people with loose tongues. Nampili ngomu asi sinzi sovantu kuna kuyimona asi kapi yina kara udigu unene mokupitira moOmicron, ano vahakuli kuna kuyimona asi vanapura asi mukisi ogu kuna kuninkisa vantu vavakondere mosipangero ntani nomfa, unene ava vapira kuvendwa vendwa tintiko pomundinda. Government yesterday again emphasised that statistics and numbers do not lie, and the benefits of vaccination are convincingly demonstrated in Namibia. Many people have tales to tell about their internship experiences of either running errands, cleaning, making coffee and/or warming food for the seniors. Organisers of the Kasi Vibe Festival are inviting young Namibian entrepreneurs to showcase their products or services at the event slated for 3 to 6 March 2022 in Windhoek. The top trending pic on our radar this week is that of a Namibian Airports Company (NAC) employee, who was photographed with her bare feet on a check-in desk in full view of travellers at the Hosea Kutako International Airport recently. Muuso viki yefelile nohatelezi hape kuli lipiho ni linombolo halipumi, nikuli kupendiwa kimuhato sakata wakuisileleza sina hakubonahezi mwanaha Namibia. ǂHanub ge ǁkhawa ǂoa ge wekheb Donertaxs ai gere ǀgonǀgon!gao !gôakhâigu tsî !gôagu hân ǂhomi tamasa tsî Namibiab !nās !aroma a amasa. The learners’ representative council at Sauyemwa Combined School in Rundu is providing less-privileged learners with shoes and uniforms through the Dress-Up-A Friend Project, otherwise known as “Dwareka Mukweni” in Rukwangali. Leprosy is curable if treated on time with the right drugs. Treatment is free, and communities are urged to report to the nearest government health facilities for any rashes to rule it out. Musicians should have powerful messages in their songs for them to last longer in the industry, legendary musician Peter ‘Capitol K’ Kayambe has said. Deputy information minister Emma Theofelus has called on radio broadcasters to continuously fact-check information before disseminating it to the public, and to become champions in the fight against disinformation. “The slowest cow will eventually reach the kraal, so we will get there with vaccinating the larger population.” Former labour deputy minister Alphaus Vehonga Muheua, who passed on yesterday, has been hailed as a committed, humble and principled trade unionist of note who had the best interest of workers at heart. He was 65.
