According to local media, the water supply to the hospital was interrupted from Saturday. CoW spokesperson Lydia Amutenya said in a media release yesterday that a standby team of the Bulk Water Division of CoW received a call regarding the water shortage at the hospital on Saturday evening. “When the team arrived at the hospital, they found that the municipal gate valve at the tee-off (to the hospital) was closed and it is still not known when the valve was closed and by whom,” Amutenya said, adding that some of the tools used to close the valve were reportedly also found at the site. She added that the meter is located on the hospital’s premises and is enclosed in a chamber. “The chamber is not easily reachable by the public. However, we are aware that the Ministry of Works and Transport recently repaired pipes on the hospital premises,” the statement added. Despite the three-day interruption, the CoW was on Monday morning able to supply about 1,000 litres of water to the hospital, upon request. This interruption, according to the CoW, not only inconvenienced hospital operations but also caused damage to the hospital’s storage tanks as the main supply was closed. The statement further asked the two ministries concerned, the works ministry and Ministry of Health and Social Services, to accept responsibility for this matter as CoW’s role ends at the water meter. The health ministry was advised to consider a lockable system at the water meter and that one key be provided to the CoW for emergency purposes. “This will prevent the unauthorised opening and closing of the gate valves by unknown persons in future,” Amutenya said. – Nampa

Thursday, February 8 2018 | NEW ERA NEWS 7 More royalties for local artists Staff Reporter Windhoek Apart from local artists depending on annual royalties from Nascam the organisation also collects levies for general licencing from all music users around the country, that include; jukebox operators or owners, hotels, restaurants, lodges, bars, shopping centres, stores, nightclubs/ discos, public and private schools, sports clubs, live music concert organisers, just to mention but a few. General licencing clearly states the owner or operator of an establishment where music is publicly performed is required to obtain the advanced authorisation required for the performance of copyrighted music on the premises from Nascam. New Era understands that each establishment around the country pays a different tariff, which determines their licence fee per annum. In turn, artists can only expect some sort of payout once the general licencing collections are done. ‘Blanket licence’ collections only top up royalties’ collection, when that year’s collection has a surplus and the administration was minimal, and the Nascam board of directors agrees to add each and every member of the society to the list When this reporter asked if any local art- from this sector of revenue, John Max CEO of Nascam responded in writing that, “Local songwriters always like receiving royalties, be able to register their musical works on a professional process system that links their music to the international database, … collections used for the total running the operation of the organisation for them to have a sense of belonging …these that artists couldn’t see and understand until one has to explain in detail to them.” Nascam has collected payments for general licencing for 2017, but once the auditing process of the year. Members of the organisation are then only informed at their Annual General Meeting in July about possible payouts.
