Friday, November 24 2017 | NEW ERA Jonas’ scholarship a big gaffe by the NNOC? I would like to start off by commending the Namibia National Olympics Committee (NNOC) for its continued efforts in empowering and uplifting local athletes in almost all spheres, especially with the recent announcement that the NNOC had granted a total of 16 scholarships to the country’s various athletes. The scholarships are aimed at helping the athletes compete to the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympic Games and 2018 Youth Olympic Games. Nine scholarships were awarded to assist athletes to attend quali- Youth Olympic Games, while seven scholarships will make provision for athletes to train at high-performance facilities to help qualify for the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo. The recipients represent archery, athletics, boxing, cycling, equestrianism, gymnastics, rowing, triathlon, swimming and wrestling. The recipients Tokyo 2020 scholarships: Maike Helga Diekman (rowing), Jonas Junias Jonas (boxing), Matias Hamunyela (boxing), Tristan de Lange (cycling), Jean-Paul Burger (triathlon), Nestori Thomas (boxing) and Tryagain Ndevelo (boxing). Youth Olympic Games 2018 Scholarships: Adrian Grobler (archery), Sade de Sousa (athletics), Ivan Geldenhuys (athletics), Alexander Miller (cycling), Nadine Fleming (equestrian), Lance Potgieter (gymnastics), Heleni Stergiadio (swimming), Ronan Wantenaar (swimming) and Hafeni Asino (wrestling). I was particularly shocked by the inclusion of the country’s amateur boxer Junias Jonas Junias, who still has a massive dark cloud hanging over his head. Jonas was arrested during last year’s Olympic Games in Brazil on suspicion of sexually harassing a house maid in the Athletes Village in the West Zone of Rio de Janeiro. His case is ongoing and of a serious nature, and equally, the outcomes of such a complex case are naturally unpredictable - so I was quite puzzled by the NNOC’s decision to award Jonas a scholarship while he still has such a serious case pending. It makes no sense to me and the NNOC’s decision invites more questions than answers at this point in time. I mean, what if Jonas is convicted somewhere within the duration of his scholarship? What will then happen to that scholarship, which would have empowered another struggling athlete? And what was the rush of awarding Jonas the scholarship – why not resolve one issue and move on to the next? Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not questioning Jonas’ boxing prowess or his ability to qualify for Tokyo 2020, but I’m merely concerned about the integrity of the NNOC and the good name of the country as well as the emotional wellbeing of Jonas. I equally understand that perhaps the NNOC is also trying reboot the An award ceremony was held at GZ Sentrum in Windhoek on 21 November for the 2017 ICOPE Leadership Development Programme of Telecom Namibia. months with two days of formal, instructor-led training per months. At least 124 middle managers completed a leadership development programme of¬fered by the Emergence Learning Academy. They were “The teaching was practical at all times and so were the actual the programme,” said Prof. Sakkie van de Merwe, Managing Director of Emergence Learning Academy. “The standard of work delivered throughout the programme was of high quality, the engagement by the candidates with each module was and implementation of the lessons learnt, well demonstrated,” added Prof. Van de Merwe. The programme is intended to help the middle management to assimilate both the way of thinking and the capabilities required to support their transition into more senior leadership roles across the organisation, as well as assuming the mind-set of an adaptive leader who can navigate Telecom Namibia through a rapidly changing volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous business environment characterised by intense competition, technological and regulatory changes. In line with Telecom Namibia’s goal of cultivating and sustaining leadership at all levels by creating a company of leaders, the aim of of Telecom Namibia’s leaders whilst delivering increased individual and organisational capability while supporting the drive to enhanced sustainability. Last year, 32 senior managers completed the leadership development programme which was cascaded down to middle management this year as Telecom Namibia has put in place a deliberate leadership development programme to introduce fundamental concepts and skills to help team members become high-performing leaders. the expectation of the leadership development programme by saying, “At Telecom Namibia, we are now entering another period of massive change and it will be up to us to groom future leaders, to lead the organisation through this”. “It is only by creating an environment of innovation, an environment for new ideas, to value employees’ work, equip all with the right tools and foster transparency that will be enable us to embark on the road of transformation that we can ensure sustainable growth for the organisation,” Klein said. more opportunities to compete, but I’m concerned with the haste at which the scholarship was awarded and the apparent lack of consultation. I say let’s not be desperate to restore the boxer’s reputation – and policy should not be made on the hoof but proper thinking and consideration should be given due diligence.
