Eagles’ bad form continues

Namibia’s men’s national development side, the Eagles’ bad form continued at the ongoing 2022 Bilateral Global Namibia Twenty-Twenty (T-20) matches on Friday and Saturday as they lost their two matches to the Lahore Qalandars by six and eight wickets respectively.

On Friday, the Qalandars (from Pakistan) won the toss and elected to bowl first, restricting Namibia to 136 runs for the loss of eight wickets in 20 overs (136/8).

Zane Green, Johannes Smit and Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton were the only batsmen to reach double figures as Green top scored with 55 runs from 44 balls.

Smit knocked 38 off 32 while Loftie-Eaton scored 13 from 13.

The Qalandars then scored 138/4 in 19.1 overs to claim a six wicket victory over the Eagles with Shane Dadswell (Qalandars number six batsman) named man of the match after scoring 40 runs not out from 26 balls.

In the second match, the Eagles won the toss and elected to bat but found the going tough as they were skittled out for 155/6 in 20 overs.

Once again, only three batters managed double figures, with Divan la Cock (16 runs) and captain Merwe Erasmus (63 runs not out) joining Loftie-Eaton (51 runs).

Four of the top five Qalandars batters managed to hit double figures with opener Muhammad Naeem retiring due to injury after scoring 56 runs from 36 balls.

Qalandars fast pace bowler Dilbar Hussain was named man of the match after taking four wickets for 29 runs in four overs.

In the other match played on Saturday, South Africa’s DP World Lions beat the Qalandars by 47 runs after scoring 164/4 in 20 overs.

The Qalandars were bowled out for 117/9.

Namibia had lost their first game of the series by 18 runs to DP World Lions in the first day of the tournament at Wanderers Cricket Fields.

At the same venue on Sunday, Qalandars play the DP World Lions before the Lions play Namibia in their second match of the day.

The DP World Lions top the log with four points from two games, while the Qalandars have four points from three matches and the Eagles anchor the log with zero points from three matches.

On Monday, the Lions will play the Qalandars in the final of the three team tournament, before the Eagles play two 50 over matches against the Qalandars on Wednesday and Friday.

Africa must collaborate on energy: Alweendo

African countries should join forces to leverage from their natural energy resources proactively and creatively to find homegrown solutions to the continent’s socio-economic challenges, Mines and Energy Minister Tom Alweendo has said.

Speaking at the MSGBC Oil, Gas and Power conference held in Dakar, Senegal on Friday, Alweendo said in order to achieve Agenda 2063, there is a need for African countries to effectively collaborate amongst each other to ensure maximum capitalisation on their oil and gas resources.

Alweendo stressed that though energy is a critical catalyst for development, more than 600 million people in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to reliable electricity, noting that African countries need a reliable energy supply to provide livelihoods to their people and lift communities out of poverty.

“It is our duty to ensure that we live up to the expectations of our forefathers; to unite and develop our continent. With a positive mindset in harnessing our oil and gas resources, we can reap the economic benefits that come with eradicating energy poverty,” he said.

Alweendo critiqued that though global interest groups are suggesting upon Africa to give up fossil fuel energy sources, the continent calls upon energy transition that is just and equitable amongst nations.

He said countries highly dependent on fossil fuel for their socio-economic development, may need a little more time to transition than those that have already made an inroad into the renewable energy space.

“African energy industry stakeholders do not have to shrug our shoulders; we cannot and should not accept other people’s realities about our energy trajectory. Not when we are just about to get there. Not when turning things around is clearly within our grasp,” he slammed.

Alweendo noted that many African countries are developing legal frameworks that foster a more productive relationship with the international oil companies to ensure local economic benefits for citizens, create job opportunities and diversify the economies.

The MSGBC Basin is named after the acronym of the countries in which the basin resides, namely Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau and Guinea-Conakry.

The conference aimed to unify regional energy leaders, national and international oil companies as well as global financiers for networking and engagement.

Geingob to visit Botswana to discuss security matters

President Hage Geingob will travel to Gaborone, Botswana on 08 September 2022 to attend the Botswana-Namibia Bi-National Commission (BNC) session, to discuss security and defence matters between the two countries.

A statement issued by the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation on Saturday said BNC is a high-level bilateral agreement signed between Geingob and Botswana President Mokgweetsi Masisi during his visit on 29 January 2022. It replaced the joint commission on cooperation and the joint permanent commission on security and defence between the two countries.

The commission is expected to review cooperation in a wide range of areas including Diplomatic, Legal, Economic, Social, and Defence and Security, as well as exchange views on issues of mutual interest and concern at the regional and multilateral fora.

The Head of State BNC summit will be preceded by the senior officials and ministerial meeting from 05 to 08 September, and two countries are expected to consider and sign new bilateral agreements and memoranda of understanding.

The statement further noted that Geingob will be accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah; Minister of Home Affairs, Immigration, Safety and Security, Albert Kawana; Minister of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform, Carl Schlettwein; Minister of Health and Social Services, Kalumbi Shangula; Minister of Industrialisation and Trade, Lucia Iipumbu; Attorney General, Advocate Festus Mbandeka; and Deputy Minister of Defence and Veteran Affairs, Hilma Nicanor.

Geingob will return on 09 September 2022.

Wanderers crowned 2022 champions

Wanderers Rugby Club were crowned the 2022 Rugby Premier League Champions after convincingly beating the University of Namibia (UNAM) 51-31 in the final played at the Hage Geingob Stadium on Saturday.

Wanderers meant business from the start as Andre van der Berg scored the first points of the match via a penalty in the third minute.

UNAM responded via a converted try to take the lead before the two sides traded penalties to leave the score at 10-06 in favour of UNAM with 13 minutes gone.

Wanders then scored two converted tries and a penalty to UNAM’s one converted try and one missed penalty to leave the score at 23-17 at halftime.

The beginning of the second half saw UNAM hit the post twice from penalties within the first five minutes.

Wanderers took advantage of the misses to score a breakaway try from their five-metre line through winger Nandivatu Karuuombe with Van der Berg registering his only miss from the kicks to leave his side leading 28-17.

UNAM struck back with a converted try to make it a four-point game (28-24) but Wanderers once again stretched their lead through another converted Karuuombe try to get to 35-24.

Wanderers then scored three more penalties and a converted try to reach a total of 51-24 with 12 minutes of the match remaining.

UNAM could not mount a comeback but managed to reduce the arrears via a converted try by Darryl Wellman with seven minutes remaining for the final score of 51-31.

Van der Berg was the star of the show as he scored 29 points from the boot (seven penalties and four conversions) to lead his side to their first championship in four years.

Wanderers scored five tries (twice by Karuuombe and one each from Louis Meyer, Nico Martens and substitute Iyambo Tsuuya).

UNAM’s Aljarreau Zaahl had a nightmare game with his boots as he missed four penalties but converted all four of UNAM’s penalties, leaving his side facing their second defeat in the finals in five years.

Meanwhile, for Wanderers, it was a clean sweep of rugby accolades as their Reserve Team beat Rehoboth Rugby Club 31-30 to claim the Reserve League Title, while Wanderers Women’s Rugby Team were also crowned Ladies Premier League Champions following a 29-0 victory over Rehoboth in the final.

Gladiators bounce back

Brave Gladiators bounced back from their defeat in the opening game of the 2022 Council of Southern African Football Associations (Cosafa) Women’s Championship to Zambia, by beating Eswatini 5-1 at the Nelson Mandela Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

Woman of the match on Sunday and captain, Zenatha Coleman missed one penalty and scored another as winger Ivone Kooper scored a brace while Memory Ngonda and Veweziwa Kotjipati each scored one to lead Namibia to a well-deserved victory.

The Gladiators started slowly allowing the Swati to have all the possession in the middle of the park.

When the Gladiators got going, they made light work of their opponents with Coleman providing an inch-perfect pass to Kooper who had the easiest task of passing the ball into the net in the 22nd minute to give Namibia the lead.

Two minutes later Ngonda added the second for the Gladiators, after cheekily scoring in the near corner from a tight angle when everyone expected her to cross to her better-positioned teammates.

Swaziland made a change in midfield removing Simile Marks and replacing her with Simangele Hlatshwayo to stabilise the midfield, a move which started to pay off with Melissa Matheus called to make a double save within the space of a minute.

Swaziland then pulled one back with a minute of halftime to leave the game 2-1 at the break.

Right at the restart Namibia was awarded a penalty, but Coleman blasted her effort over the bar before Kooper added her second in the 64th minute before scoring the other with the last kick of the game.

Kotjipati scored the fourth with a cool finish from a Ngonda pass in the 73rd minute with her last touch of the game before being hauled off for Juliana Blou.

Speaking after the match, coach Paulus Shipanga said the team had shown improvement from their defeat by Zambia.

“We got the goals that we wanted, but we could have had more. We gave away a similar goal to the one we conceded to Zambia. Our wingbacks had moved up and left gaps at the back,” he said.

Namibia will now play Lesotho on Tuesday in a game they will need to win to advance to the semi-finals of this year’s tournament.
