President Hage Geingob has encouraged government ministries to work faster on the implementation modalities to accelerate the realisation of beneficiation of Namibia’s minerals for a sustainable economic and social development. Deputy Prime Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah on Tuesday urged Namib Desert Diamonds (Namdia) staff not to be tempted with dishonesty simply because of the precious commodity they handle. The In Situ Leach (ISL) mining method can be defined as the extraction of uranium from the host sandstone by chemical solutions, and the recovery of uranium at the surface. Namibia’s trade with BRICS countries during 2022 stood at a mammoth N$97 billion. The owner of international food-processing company Tönnies Holding ApS & Co plans to open a company in Namibia specialising in the slaughtering, butchering, processing and refining of pork and beef. Debmarine Namibia, the company operating one of world’s largest state-of-the-art diamond recovery vessels the Benguela Gem, is recording a massive upsurge in diamond production, which in turn is leading to higher revenue- generation. Korea hopes to tap into Namibia’s critical mineral reserves. !Auga!hūsi ǂûn ǂharugub ǂnûiǂgās, Tӧnnies Holding ApS & Co di ra ǀonǂgaihes di ǀhonkhoeb ge ǀaweǁguiga ūhâ Namibiab !nâ ǂharuguba ǁkhowa-amsa hîa ûitsamaxūna ǂā tsî ǁamaxūs !aroma aiǂhomis disa, !gōsase hāguǁgan-i tsî goma-gan-i ai ǂâisa ra ǂnûi ǂgaose. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be used as a tool to increase productivity and efficiency, particularly in Namibia where State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) and public service in general are perceived as both inefficient and unproductive. The Stampriet Aquifer Uranium Mining Association (SAUMA) remains adamant that a proposed uranium extraction method in the Omaheke region by a Russian mining company poses a genuine threat to underground water supplies. One of the sleepy villages in the Omaheke region, Leonardville, is now experiencing a carnival-like atmosphere after it was discovered that surrounding areas are blessed with coveted uranium deposits. Long-term debt for ailing State-owned meat-processing and meat-marketing entity Meat Corporation of Namibia (Meatco) consists of three loans from the Development Bank of Namibia (DBN). Petroleum commissioner in the mines and energy ministry Maggy Shino recently said the determination on whether Namibian oil discoveries recorded in the Orange basin are commercially viable, will only be known in the next eight to 12 months. First National Bank (FNB) of Namibia says it cannot take responsibility for those who lost money to fraudsters through its eWallet service. Mines and energy minister Tom Alweendo has told parliamentarians that Namibians must be cognisant of the risks when trying to increase government’s share in the oil and gas industry. The City of Windhoek is adamant it will bring about an end to deplorable makeshift zinc structures, known as shacks, in informal settlements through an affordable housing project. Namibia is the first Southern African country to conduct a national assessment of its internet universality indicators. President Hage Geingob has urged Namibians to play their part in this ‘Year of Revival’ to actively participate and cooperate during the 2023 National Population and Housing Census. Information and communication technology minister Peya Mushelenga said access to information technology (IT) services and facilities is no longer a luxury but a necessity, given the role these technologies play in society. The long-overdue fourth National Population and Housing Census being carried out by the Namibia Statistics Agency (NSA) is scheduled to begin on Monday, 18 September 2023 and end on 3 November 2023.
