Tuesday, November 28 2017 | NEW ERA 15 Helao Nafidi aims to enhance food security Nuusita Ashipala Ongwediva H is constructing a N5 million treatment plant to recycle sewerage water to be reused for irrigation. Mayor Eliaser Nghipangelwa says the supply of untreated wastewater is aimed at encouraging the residents to establish backyard gardens to boost food security at the town. Nghipangelwa adds that the initiative also aims to reduce dependency on government for drought relief and to create a sustainable means of growing food. Apart from producing food for themselves, the community is urged to use the opportunity to farm for be self-reliant and produce enough food for themselves, and even enough to generate income for themselves if needs be,” says Nghipangelwa. The water will be supplied to the community at a very low price compared to potable water supplied cognisance that potable water is expensive to use for gardening, hence this is our way of meeting our residents half way, because this water initially went to waste,” says Nghipangelwa. The council will refrain from constructing dams at the extension at the town, as is the norm connecting instead all sewage from the town to the treatment plant to ensure every drop of water is utilised. At present, the treatment plant extracts water from sewage dams available at the various extensions at the town. Nghipangelwa plan will become operational, but says 95 percent of the work is done. However, council does not have the the construction and is waiting on government to avail the funds. situation that our government is it collects enough it will come to our aid,” says Nghipangelwa.

Breeders decide to elevate Van Rooy sheep Staff Reporter Windhoek National Van Rooy Breeders Association has vowed to put the Van Rooy breed back on the map. For this purpose Dean van Dyk of Van Rooy National Championships, pledged sponsorship for the last week October 2018 in Windhoek when more than 300 of the best Van Rooy purebreds will be paraded at the National Van Rooy Day inaugurated recently. 50 local breeders have more than 200 animals, it was also decided to have regular information days and inspectors’ courses to boost Van have shown that Van Rooy is very where 1 000 Dorpers would struggle to survive.’ As part of the revolution to bring back Van Rooy in big numbers, a fullcolour handbook for breeders about the Van Rooy was also launched after last week’s hugely successful information and training day at the Namboer pens. Farmers from the Omaheke showed great interest in becoming Van Rooy owners. Speaking to Titus Tjimbende from Otjinene, Blahr Tjikuzu from Epukiro, Stanley Tjozongoro from Tallismanub and Vaja Ngaujake from Aminuis, it became clear that all of Van Rooy lovers…Titus Tjimbundu, Blair Tjikuzu, Stanley Tjozongoro and Vaja Nyanyake came from Otjinene, Epikiru and Aminuis respectively to learn about the Van Rooy sheep, and they became instant fans after a very informative course and the launch of a booklet on the Van Rooy. them would love to bring more Van Rooys onto their farms. They primarily farm with Boer Goat and Damara but have been impressed with the resilience of the Van Rooy. The dwindling numbers of purebred Van Rooy was high on the ever Namibian National Van Rooy Day, attended by some forty breeders from mostly communal areas and emerging farmers. Note was taken of the vast impact the breed has left on the Namibian small stock landscape delivering magnificent sheep as tough thoroughbred in the first decade and now increasingly as a cross-bred with Dorper. President and chairperson of the new Van Rooy Breeders Association’s management, Piet Coetzee and Karbe Persendt respectively, did not mince their words emphasising the sharp decline in the numbers of the purebred. The more than 50 active commercial, communal and emerging Van Rooy breeders of Namibia all expressed concern about the way things are going pledging to bring back the Van Rooy with a bang. Ten years ago Namibian breeders rocked the Van Rooy world stage by winning the international championship in SA OFA winds down the year Kae MaÞun9ÿu-Tjiparuro Windhoek The Okakarara Farmers Association (OFA) is winding down the year this Friday in Okakarara with a farmers’ day graced by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry (MAWF)’s permanent secretary, Percy Misika. Misika would be explaining a new agricultural project, which his ministry has introduced. Other experts in the sector are also expected at this event. Barely six month at the helm now, OFA executive committee is hell bent on diversifying the farming activities of the farming communities in the Ozonahi communal area. Given the increasing constant pressure on livestock, due to droughts because of climatic changes, coupled with diseases, also related to change in climate, there is no way forward than diversifying from animal husbandry into crop production. Secretary general of AFA Jackson Hindjou Tjituka says besides providing food security crop production can also boost animal husbandry by proving farmers with the necessary fodder for their animals. He says AFA has number of years and a result there have been no programmes in place to help farmers with the leadership that has been there concentrating only on the marketing of the animals. In this regard he thinks the new leadership have inherited a good foundation they can build on as the association is on Other aspects that they plan addressing is debushing to allow grazing to resuscitate as well as adding value to traditional products such as milk, in this case looking at the production of chees as well traditional fat, known as omaze. This is in line with the government’s Growth at Home strategy encouraging home processing rather than the export of raw materials. Hindjou Tjituka adds that another of their focus is to mainstream the youth and women into farming in view of the fact that most of the current farmers are reaching retirement and thus it is only visionary to have someone following in their footsteps. Hence, one of their main occupation is to generally educate, make aware and to expose the public to farming. Hitherto they have had three farmers day, which he thinks was a success with an average attendance of 80 people. They hit the ground running having already ploughed back within their community by donating photocopy paper to schools in the town of Okakarara for the yearend examinations. The new leadership comprises: Jackson Kazetjikuria (chairperson), Elia Kandjii (vice chairperson), Jackson Hindjou Tjituka (secretary general), Isabella Muikute, Benestus Katjizeu (treasurer), Nico Ngaujake (vice treasurer), Hitjevi Tjihuiko (PRO and advisor), Mbenaije Kazenaimue (organiser) and Ngutjaana Katjiukua (deputy organiser). Hitting the ground… The new leadership of the Okakarara Farmers Association (OAFA) mobilising farmers and giving them feedback on the way forward during a meeting at Red Flag Commando Hall in Windhoek on November 8.
