Wednesday, August 9 2017 | NEW ERA NEWS 7 Kalkrand man held over wife’s murder Selma Ikela Windhoek The body of a 49-yearold woman was discovered a day after she was reportedly killed by her husband in the Kalkrand area on Friday morning. The deceased woman has been identified as Anna Scott. The suspect, the victim’s husband Hermanus Scott, was arrested and appeared in Mariental Magistrate’s Court yesterday, where he was denied bail. The case was then postponed to October 3. Nampol spokesperson Chief Inspector Kauna Shikwambi said Scott was badly assaulted and allegedly killed by her 53-year-old husband after an argument on August 2 at an unknown time at the farm where they lived.

In an unrelated matter in Khomas Region, a 52-yearold woman was raped by a 29-year-old man on Friday at an unknown time in Ombili, Windhoek. The police have opened case of housebreaking, rape and assault through threatening against the suspect. Shikwambi alleged the suspect unlawfully and intentionally broke into the complainant’s room and had sexual intercourse with her without her consent. The police in Windhoek have also opened an Councillor of Kahenge Constituency and chairperson of Kavango West Regional Council Joseph Sivaku has urged residents of the region to desist from setting fire to bush areas. Sivaku told Nampa in an interview recently that people should stop burning the veld, an Afrikaans word for grasslands, because this can destroy forests. He said people should know the importance of the environment they live in, be mindful of what it can offer and the damage a forest fire can cause. Veld fires have over the past weeks been reported at Rupara and Nzinze village, about 70 kilometres (km) and 85 km west of Rundu, respectively. The councillor explained that when a fire destroys the forest, it forces animals such as elephants in particular to come closer to people in search of food, which in turn destroys their belongings and crop fields. “I am sure that each and every Namibian knows the importance of nature and how much it contributes to the economy and our daily lives,” said Sivaku. He also urged lawmakers to introduce stiffer punishments to deal with anyone caught committing such acts. The councillor noted that burning the veld contributes to global warming, which can bring about droughts like those experienced two years ago. “Because of droughts some farmers lost their cattle, preventing them from ploughing during the ploughing season,” said Sivaku. Section 40 of the Forest Act of 2001 on the Control and Management of Fire states that no person shall light a fire or cause a fire to be lit in a community forest or a forest management area unless in the case of a community forest, the lighting of the fire has been authorised by the management authority of the community forest and done in accordance with a relevant management plan. A person found contravening Section 40 of this Act which resorts under the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry is liable to pay compensation to a person who suffers damage as a result. Failure to do that can lead to imprisonment for no more than two years or a fine of N,000. – Nampa inquest docket after Likando Eric Matengu reportedly committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a 9mm Norinco pistol.

Monday, 7 August 2017 Matheus Hamutenya Keetmanshoop The Keetmanshoop Agricultural and Industrial Show during its official launch at a gala event here on Friday raised about N,500 – far less than the amounts collected during previous years. Show society president Charles Jossob attributed the low amount to the economic situation being experienced all over the country. He said many companies were willing to give, but could not give what they do not have and thus many companies gave the little they could, while some did not give at all, as they are also facing difficulties. Around N,800 was collected at a similar gala dinner last year. “It is a bit lower than previous years and this might be due to the economic situation that our country is in, because most companies indicated that they could not pledge due to the economic situation,” he said. He was, however, optimistic the show will go ahead and expects it to be bigger and better this year, saying preparations are on schedule and residents can expect a good show, with more than 150 exhibitors expected this year.
