This is to ensure that all available water supply sources and available options are modelled and tested for optimal supply of water to the entire Central Area of Namibia. In addition, the City is also upgrading and testing its infrastructure and installations to ascertain the sustainable yield of its boreholes, and to have better information for planning purposes, for the supply of water to all its residents. The City is therefore planning to do an impact test on the Windhoek Aquifer system as of 28 February 2018 for a continuous period of 8 weeks. During this time the aquifer will be subjected to an increased pumping rate. It is necessary that these tests be conducted at an earlier stage, and not only during a drought situation. The results of such tests will allow the City to prepare for any unforeseen eventuality which may potentially arise, when the Windhoek Aquifer is subjected to higher extraction rates. The City will have a team actively monitoring the situation on a 24-hour basis to ensure that the water quality is safe for consumption at all times. This notice therefore serves to inform the public of the intended tests, and to cooperate in this regard.

Monday, March 5 2018 | NEW ERA SPORT 21 Government funding lacking for sport: Katamba WINDHOEK The Director of Sports in the Ministry of Sport, Youth and National Service, Sivute Katamba, says sport is currently being viewed by the government as mere play. In a panel discussion hosted by the Namibia National Commission for Unesco (Natcom) in Windhoek on Friday, Katamba said until Namibia realizes that the sports ministry links all ministries, it can forget about using sport as an agent for change. “Sports can reduce the budget of health, it also promotes peace, and addresses a lot of issues in our society. Sport keeps us healthy, if you are not healthy you cannot do anything,” he explained. He said when politicians discuss the national budget, they forget about the successes of Frank Fredericks, Johanna Benson, Collin Benjamin, or any other sporting hero who united the nation. He questioned how the country could develop if political heads that decide on that outcome do not prioritise sport. Joel Mathews, the chairperson of the Namibia Sports Commission, said by adequately funding sport, the government will be creating employment, therefore fighting poverty, which means citizens will be happy, and therefore maintain peace and stability. “We can have our athletes earning so much money through sports if government invests in our sports personalities. For any athlete to get results, they must be exposed to international training standards and competition,” Mathews said. He called on the government to invest in sport to get returns and that this investment must start from primary school. Namibia can do this by comparing with other countries on how it is done, he said. “For an athlete to win a gold Putting heads together… From left, Shivuthe Katamba, Joel Matheus and Collin “Collymore” Benjamin during the brainstorming session in Windhoek last week. medal at major competitions, it takes millions of dollars to prepare them. In Namibia, we only associate ourselves with athletes when they have won something – after or before that, they do not exist in our lives. This must change,” concluded Mathews. – Nampa Sports clubs receive equipment ONGWEDIWA Four sporting disciplines are the sports equipment valued at N,000 from the Ongwediva Town Council, which was handed over to the selected Angelina Angula on Thursday.
