8 NEWS Tuesday, August 15 2017 | NEW ERA #Oan-||Ob Primary School launches 90th anniversary REHOBOTH Learners, parents and teachers of #Oan- ||Ob Primary School in Rehoboth on Thursday marched from the school to Grens Winkel as part of the launch of their 90-year anniversary. The school, named after the #Oan-||Ob River that runs through Rehoboth, was established on 10 October 1927 in the then old location of Rehoboth from where the indigenous Damara and Nama people were later forcefully removed. The school will celebrate its anniversary in October, and Thursday signalled 61 days to the celebrations. At the launch on Thursday, Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Republic of Namibia (ELCRN) Windhoek Circuit Dean, Reverend Abraham ||Kheibeb said the school should be a well of knowledge as it is named after the river. “The school is named after a river, a pathway of water, and should thus be well known like the river through academic performance. Like water is life, education of learners should be the light in the coming future to pave better lives for them.” ||Kheibeb said teachers in unison with parents should work hard to educate and raise children to become successful individuals who will bring about economic and social transformation in Namibia. “We as parents should know that we are the very first teachers of our children and thus need to raise them as principled and respectful beings towards their teachers at school,” ||Kheibeb said. Former learner and now teacher at the school, Caroline !Gaoses, at the same occasion called on former learners and teachers to come out in droves to motivate the current crop of learners. “The children should know that from this very school, principals, doctors, nurses, inspectors and teachers were produced, so they can feel encouraged to do well,” !Gaoses noted. She further said the school is in dire need of assistance to make the celebrations memorable and called on the people and businesses of Rehoboth to contribute what they can towards the event. She also appealed for help to create Photo: Nampa The #Oan-||Ob Primary School learners doing a silver collection during the launch of the school’s 90th anniversary launch on Thursday.

At the end of the launch, learners and parents produced a silver collection on the number 90 that was painted on the interlocks with white paint.

Tuesday, August 15 2017 | NEW ERA CRIME & COURTS 9 NDC tender fraud accused trial date set Maria Amakali Windhoek A trial date has been set for the four people, who were arrested in 2015 over irregularities in the awarding of N.5 million worth of tenders at Namibia Development Corporation (NDC). Charity Mujohn-Kaali (35), Mavis Namakondo Sabuta (38), Precious Mbuywana Kamwi (56) and Songiso Chrispin Kamwi (63) were all arrested two years ago and are facing charges of fraud, money laundering, using and providing a false document, using position for gratification and disguising unlawful origin of a property, which are all offences under the Anti- Corruption Act. The prosecution and the defence lawyers of the accused yesterday agreed to have the four stand trial on an available date in June next year. The prosecution is charging the four for alleged fraudulent activities surrounding the awarding of tenders to family members and acquaintances. The fraud charges the accused face are all are linked to former executive at NDC, Mujohn-Kaali’s 24 charges of fraud. It is alleged that Mujohn- Kaali, while employed at NDC, used her position to influence the awarding of tenders to relatives and friends. Mujohn-Kaali is accused of using her position for the facilitation of N.5 million tender for the construction of the Omumbonde Industrial Park in Okahandja in favour of her friend. Furthermore, Mujohn-Kaali allegedly facilitated the awarding of N0 000 NDC tender to her aunt, Precious Kamwi, through a company that she owns, Broad Wings Investment. Broad Wings Investment was awarded the tender to supply office equipment at the NDC Rundu branch. Kamwi is facing 14 charges of fraud alongside her niece. On the other hand, Sabuta is facing 16 charges of fraud and Chrispin Kamwi is facing two charges of money laundering. Mujohn-Kaali’s estranged husband Kennedy Kaali allegedly reported the case to the Anti-Corruption Commission. Speaking to New Era Songiso Chrispin Kamwi said the ACC should investigate Kaali. “I am innocent, this is purely a malicious case of revenge against the wife. If anything was wrong, why didn’t he report when they were still married?” asked Kamwi. Magistrate Ileni Velikoshi extended all their bails until their next appearance in court next year. Investigations still not finalised in afterparty murder case Maria Amakali Windhoek Investigations into the case of a man accused of killing his colleague at a year-end work party during a shooting incident at a local bar in Windhoek are still not yet complete. Julian Dawson, 38, is facing a murder charge in connection with the death of 35-year-old Sheku Bonifatius Tjihepo. Dawson, who was granted N 000 bail in the Windhoek regional court in February this year, is still waiting for investigations into his case to be finalised so that he can stand trial and answer to the events that led to the death of his colleague. Public prosecutor Munddia Cedrick informed the court on Friday that even though the court has a lab reference number, investigations are not yet finalised as lab results and photo plan are yet to be filed. Cedrick asked the court to postpone the matter to allow the investigations to be completed. According to the substantial facts contained on the charge sheet, Dawson shot and killed Tjihepo unlawfully and intentionally at or near Ausspannplatz on 12 November 2016. Tjihepo died after being shot in the chest. It is alleged that Tjihepo and Dawson were in the company of friends and colleagues at a local bar in Ausspannplatz, Windhoek, when a fight broke out between the two. During the argument, Dawson, who was in possession of a gun, pulled it out and started Murder accused Julian Dawson firing several shots at random within the club. Allegedly after the argument was over, Dawson got into another heated argument with another customer at the bar and once again fired three shots into the air. Tjihepo was shot while trying to wrestle the gun from Dawson, the charge sheet says. He died after one bullet penetrated his chest and another one hit him in the back. Dawson will make his next appearance in court on September 29, after magistrate Elizabeth Mungunda postponed the case to allow for further police investigations. 18 dead in mudslide, heavy flooding in Sierra Leone capital: Red Cross FREETOWN At least 18 people were killed in a mudslide and heavy flooding that hit Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown, yesterday, a Red Cross official told AFP. An AFP journalist at the scene saw bodies being carried away and houses submerged in mud in two areas of the city, where roads were turned into churning rivers of mud and corpses washed up on the streets. Images shared by local media showed people waist-deep trying to traverse streets of flowing water, while a section of a hill in the Regent area was reported to have collapsed. Flooding is an annual menace in Sierra Leone, where unsafe housing is regularly swept away by torrential rains. Flooding in the capital in 2015 killed 10 people and left thousands homeless. - Nampa/AFP To enhance the quality of life of all our people PUBLIC NOTICE PERMANENT CLOSURE OF PORTION ‘Y’ (A PORTION OF ERF 789), OKURYANGAVA AS PUBLIC OPEN SPACE.
