Buoyed by the massive turnout at a fully packed Olufuko Centre in Outapi, President Hage Geingob yesterday said after 33 years of sustained progress, there is still work to be done for the country to achieve its goals. Following sporadic rainfall in the Kunene region, the regional leadership wants immediate food consignment intervention from the government, as they fear for the lives and livelihoods of inhabitants. Operesidenda Hage Geingoba mena rouingi wovandu mba ri pomazemburukiro wozombura o 33 zongutukiro wa Þire kutja eriro rovaøagwa ovaheøendu novayenda ve riyandjwe kotjiwaøa nu imba ovaheøendu ve keririse oveni tjinga ava ri amave yenene. The idea of upgrading and tarring the Okanguati-Opuwo road in the Epupa constituency in the Kunene region has been received with mixed feelings. ǀNanub hîa ǀnî !âgu !nâ ǀgui gere ǀapib khao!gâs ge Kunene ǀkharisi ǂgaeǂguisa ra ǂgaoǀkhā, !naua!noexaseb ǂhanuba ǀkhurub huib ǂûn ǀkha nē tsâǀkhāhe hâ ǀhûhâsiga a !khoe-am !khaisa, ǁîn ra !ao khoen tsî ǁîn di ûitsamaxūn ûigu ǂoa!nâs nî hâsa amaga The residents of Epupa, Otuani and Sesfontein have called on the agriculture ministry to drill more boreholes in the region because the existing water points are not sufficient for both animal and human consumption. The Kunene Regional Council said it has encountered serious communications challenges with its regional stakeholders, with the main reason being that most capital projects implemented by line ministries are coordinated from their respective head offices in Windhoek. About 50 farmers who migrated to Sesfontein for illegal grazing were recently served with eviction papers to leave with immediate effect. Otjomuru Primary School principal is concerned about parents abusing their children’s social grants, and teachers of the school have resorted to buying uniform and toiletries for marginalised learners. Teachers and leaders in the Kunene region are concerned about high teenage pregnancies at the hands of family members in the region. The Easter weekend ended in sorrow, mostly for the families of 14 people who lost their lives due to suicide and motor vehicle accidents, the weekend crime reports show. Two workers were murdered while a third, alleged to be the suspect, committed suicide days after the horror incident at Farm Josephine near Dordabis in the Khomas region. Moses Matyayi, who came second in the protracted recruitment process for the much-coveted City of Windhoek’s CEO position, has been recommended to get the job. The Namibian Police are investigating a case of unnatural death after a 77-year-old man died while walking home from a cuca shop. The incident is reported to have taken place on Saturday, at about 23h00, at Okashana kIitembu cuca shops in the Omuthiya area. The Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund is eyeing a N$400 million increased budget, to N$2 billion, to cater for the expected increased number of applicants during the 2023 academic year. Two farmworkers, who were murdered at Farm Josephine near Dordabis in the Khomas region earlier this month, will be laid to rest on Saturday at Aranos. Namibian Police deputy inspector general Elias Mutota announced an investigation into a case of murder against the police officers who shot and killed five men in Okahandja last Tuesday. Women and children continue to suffer sexual abuse by male perpetrators. Over the weekend, four women, including an 11-year-old girl, were raped by known and unknown men who had sexual intercourse with them without their consent. President Hage Geingob has expressed concern over the recent increase in the number of Covid-19 cases. Geingob said it is worrisome, especially when the country’s economy is still recovering from Covid’s devastation. The long wait for a substantive CEO at the country’s biggest municipality, the City of Windhoek, could be over, as Moses Matyayi, the runner-up in the protracted recruitment process for the position, finally received the offer from the council last Monday.
