Nujoma seeks one-year extension for EEC commissioner


GOBABIS: Minister of Labour, Industrial Relations, and Employment Creation, Utoni Nujoma, has formally requested an extension of Employment Equity Commissioner Otniel Podewiltz’s tenure for an additional year to facilitate a seamless transition.

Podewiltz assumed office on 01 April 2019 and his term is set to conclude on 31 March 2024.

Nujoma presented a motion in the National Assembly on Tuesday, advocating for an extension to allow Podewiltz conclude ongoing projects initiated during his tenure in office.

‘It is necessary to highlight a few aspects here for the consideration of this request. The principal consideration here is the future of the Equity Commission, which it at risk if we fail to ensure a smooth transition and stability,’ Nujoma said.

Highlighting operational concerns, Nujoma pointed out that the commissioner currently lacks an immediate subordinate, as the deputy director who previously served was promoted and transferred to the health ministry.

‘The recruitment is underway but is not ye
t completed. The next level employee after the commissioner is a senior employment officer in Grade 8. With the commissioner out of office there will be a serious leadership gap and more importantly, no opportunity for a smooth transfer,’ the minister said.

Nujoma also outlined ongoing initiatives within the commission, such as the development and implementation of an Integrated Review Scorecard assessment to evaluate employer compliance.

The assessment is to be tested during the 2023/24 fiscal year before the new system is implemented, and potential adjustments anticipated.

‘The expectation is that further adjustments and improvements may be required for the new system, which puts the whole process in jeopardy if the key architect is no longer available,’ he noted.

Nujoma also noted that the Employment Equity Commissioner’s Annual Report for 2023/2024 and 2024 is in its final stages under Podewiltz’s leadership. Delays in its release were attributed to issues with the Employment Equity Commission Electro
nic Case Management system.

He further clarified that Podewiltz is not seeking a full five-year reappointment.

‘In reality, we are asking for a one-year extension instead of a full reappointment for five years. Podewiltz does not seek a five-year term of office but is prepared to continue for one more year only,’ Nujoma said.

The assessment is to be tested during the 2023/24 fiscal year before the new system is implemented, and potential adjustments anticipated.

‘The expectation is that further adjustments and improvements may be required for the new system, which puts the whole process in jeopardy if the key architect is no longer available,’ he noted.

Nujoma also noted that the Employment Equity Commissioner’s Annual Report for 2023/2024 and 2024 is in its final stages under Podewiltz’s leadership. Delays in its release were attributed to issues with the Employment Equity Commission Electro
nic Case Management system.

He further clarified that Podewiltz is not seeking a full five-year reappointment.

‘In reality, we are asking for a one-year extension instead of a full reappointment for five years. Podewiltz does not seek a five-year term of office but is prepared to continue for one more year only,’ Nujoma said.

Hamata calls on government to regulate private schools and vocational training centres


KEETMANSHOOP: Popular Democratic Movement Member of Parliament Hidipo Hamata has urged the government to regulate private schools and vocational training centres to ensure fairness and equality for all students and teachers.

Hamata, while speaking in Parliament on Tuesday, said a financial burden is placed on parents due to additional payments demanded by these institutions alongside tuition and hostel fees, adding that it is unsustainable.

‘Government oversight is essential to strike a balance between sustaining private institutions and protecting the interests of parents. The pressing concerns in Namibia’s private education system include fair compensation for teachers, access to education for all students and responsible financial practices,’ said Hamata.

He added that these concerns need immediate government intervention and the establishment of comprehensive regulations to ensure fairness, equality and ethical treatment within both private schools and vocational training centres.

Hamata stated that r
egulating private schools is crucial to addressing fraudulent practices related to tax and social security deductions and advocated for mandated regular reporting and provision of evidence regarding accurate payments on behalf of employees, backed by periodic audits and inspections by relevant authorities.

‘Transparent communication regulations must ensure private schools disclose salary details, including tax and social security deductions, establishing clear legal consequences for fraudulent practices, protecting employee rights to accurate financial information and implementing whistle-blower protection mechanisms are essential components of these regulations. By enacting these measures, we uphold accountability, transparency, and fairness in the financial dealings between private schools and their staff,’ he stressed.

Hamata further expressed concern about the treatment and compensation of instructors at vocational training centres.

‘Government intervention is necessary and in cases where these centres
are found violating employee rights or failing to meet education standards, strict penalties or withdrawal of funding should be implemented. This will serve as a deterrent and ensure that private vocational centres adhere to the regulations set forth, fostering a culture of accountability and commitment to quality education,’ said Hamata.

RFA and NaTIS engage Otjinene


OTJINENE: The Road Fund Administration (RFA) and the Namibia Traffic Information System (NaTIS) held a stakeholder engagement with Otjinene residents on Tuesday to discuss how the services at the local NaTIS office can be improved.



Otjinene currently has one Namibia Traffic Information System office which offers vehicle registration services only. The engagement explored the possibility of adding services such as vehicle testing and the issuing of learner’s and driver’s licences.



Otjinene regional councillor Erwin Katjizeu commended the RFA and NaTIS for engaging the community and said it is an enlightening experience for many constituents.



‘I hope NaTIS will expand its services at Otjinene to include vehicle testing and the issuing of licences as currently, there is only one office in Gobabis serving the entire region with these services,’ Katjizeu said.



Otjinene is situated some 160 kilometres from Gobabis.



Samson Ajagbe, a representative of the RFA responsible for fuel levies and abnormal loads, meanwhile urged community members to ensure that their vehicles are roadworthy and called on them to do their part to support the authority and its functions.



He explained that the RFA is responsible for collecting the road user charge, which includes fuel levies, abnormal loads, cross-border charges, and road permits.



‘Regarding vehicle licence fees, we engage extensively with communities and NaTIS as NaTIS serves as the point of collection for these fees. The funds collected by the Road Fund Administration are reinvested in roads and provided to local authorities for road maintenance. Therefore, we visit towns with Natis offices to assess operations and identify areas for improvement,’ he added.



Daniel Hange, the newly appointed NaTIS Gobabis section Leader, encouraged the public to visit their nearest NaTIS office for information on services provided by NaTIS and the Road Fund Administration.



‘Our communities lack adequate information, and I urge them to utilise Natis facilities. The Road Fund Administration has introduced an initiative allowing individuals to enter agreements and pay bills in instalments,’ Hange said.

Nghipangelwa concerned over rising malarla cases


OKANKOLO: Oshikoto region health director Joshua Nghipangelwa has raised a concern about the rising cases of malaria amongst Angolan cattle herders employed by local farmers.

Nghipangelwa in an interview with NAMPA on Wednesday pointed out that most malaria cases are imported from Angola through cattle herders that are employed by local farmers.

‘Most of the cases recorded in the region are imported from Angola through their nationals that come to look after our cattle,’ he said and urged all the farmers to have their cattle herders tested, to reduce such cases in the region.

He said a total of 354 malaria cases and three deaths were recorded from January to 26 March 2024 and most cases were reported in the Onandjokwe District Hospital.

‘The males have reported many cases and the most affected age group is between 15 to 35 years old,’ said Nghipangelwa.

He also highlighted several challenges they face in preventing malaria in the region such as the limited testing kits due to the high number of suspected
cases as well as late presentation at health facilities.

He added that there is an inadequate availability of insecticide for indoor residual spraying and a limited stock of long-lasting insecticidal nets.

‘Our community members tend to ignore information on malaria prevention,’ he said.

NUST to create reporting tool kit on indigenous communities


WINDHOEK: The Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) is developing a reporting tool kit on indigenous communities for the media which is expected to be finalised by the end of March 2024.

The toolkit is being developed by the university’s Journalism and Media Technology Department and aims to train students and journalists on effective reporting to ensure that stories represent the sources.

Speaking at a media conference here Tuesday, NUST Acting Executive Dean for the Faculty of Computing and Informatics, Fungai Shava said the critical function of journalism, which is the production of news as a representation of people from diverse backgrounds in terms of cultural, religious, class, racial, and gender identities, will be encompassed in the tool kit.

‘This is because, in this latter point, the media has often failed, especially in respect of marginalised social groups and minorities such as indigenous communities, more so when it comes to reporting on these communities,’ said Shava.

Shava ad
ded that by developing this tool kit, the department will be at the forefront of global efforts aimed at creating more equal and inclusive societies.

Media Ombudsman John Nakuta on his part urged journalists to train themselves to accurately tell the truth and report in a way that honours the sources.

Nakuta further said his office plans to create codes of good practice for the media as part of his final outgoing project, stating, ‘We can’t perpetuate these stereotypes because of lack of knowledge.’

The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) funded 10 African nations as part of its Promoting Excellence in Journalism Education in Africa Project. A grant was awarded to NUST through the University of Witwatersrand (WITS) in South Africa.

As part of developing the toolkit, the university in February visited Opuwo in the Kunene region, home to the majority of the Ovahimba people, and Donkerbos in the Omaheke region, a community east of Gobabis, home to the San people to lear
n from and experience firsthand accounts.

From these experiences, they are creating a reporting toolkit, three research papers, journals, and stories which will be published after review by community leaders on behalf of the communities that the students engaged to ensure accuracy and fairness, before being published by various media houses.
