1 * l"oday: DYING DAYS AT KHORIXAS * 'MORE ON THE CCB * READERS' LETTERS * Baster bid to halt elections could be on cards. ERICH RUMOURS that an urgent appeal will be lodged with the Supreme Court to contest the holding of elections in the Rehoboth gebiet c were stonewalled by a lawyer yesterday. Sources claim that a Windhoek law finn, W'eder, Kruger and Hartnl,.ann, has received instructions from Rehoboth 's ~ Diergaardt to bring an-urgent appeal in the. Supreme, Court on Saturday, November 28, to declare the holding of elections in Rehoboth as ultra vires (beyond one's legal power or authority). Yesterday noted lawyer, Abe Naude, who represents Diergaardt, would neither deny nor confirm the ru 'mour and refused to comment. Diergaardt also refused to say anything about the matter, adding that all statements should come through his attorney. He would only confinn that certain instructions had been given to his attorney. If such an application is successful, there are fears that it might seriously influence the elections, especially in the Hardap and Khomas regions since its delimitation divides the. CONT.

Peace hopes in Angola LUANDA: Unita leader Jonas Savimbi t~jked with a leading government genera. in the first high-level contacts between the two sides since weekend fi,ghting left dead, Angolan state radio reported yesterday. Savimbi received ceasefire proposals from General Antonio Franca N'dalu, the radio report said. N'dalu was a key governinent negotiator in earlier talks with the Unita rebels. Meanwhile Brazilian and Russian news reports said UDited Nations officials were working to fre_e some 75 citizens from those countries seized by Unita at a dam project east of Luanda. Moscow television reported Unita leaders said the foreigners were not in danger. UN peacekeeping chief Marrack Goulding was e'tpected to arrive in Luanda Friday aiming to consolidate a fragile truce brokered by the UN Sunday night. The capital was quiet yesterday and state radio urged citizens to "stop the collapse of the economy" by returning to work. But fighting was reported in at least three provinces. Government radio said Wednesday rebels took the town ofcaxito, SO kilometers north-east of the capital. - Portuguese State Secretary for Foreign Affairs Jose Manuel Durao Barroso spoke by telephone for an hour with Savimbi late Wednesday. An aide said Durao Barroso was convinced dialogue was still possible between the two sides. Durao Barroso was the chief mediator in May 1991 peace accords that halted the 16-year civil war that began 011 the eve of Angola's ind~pendence from Portugal in Sapa RUMOURS of another exam scam, involving leaked examination papers from the Ministry of Education, were confirmed by permanent secretary Vitalis Ankama yesterday. He said reports of leaked papers in the Windhoek area were being investigated by both the Ministry and the Police. AIlkama added that he was unaware of similar problems in the Ondangwa region reported to The N amibian this week. Though details remain sketchy about how many candidates or which examinations are involved, Arikama said any suspicious circumstances would be investigated. In view of last year's exam scam which led to a massive rewrite for thousands of part-time matric students, the Ministry would take no chances with the credibility of its examination system, he said. "We cannot rule out the possibility of another rewrite if the problem proves to be extensive. At the moment though, it does not appear to be very widespread," People worried about the chances of a rewrite have already called The N amibian, appealing to the Ministry to think carefully, Last year the delay in obtaining matriculation certificates caused untold problems for would-be university entrants unable to present the necessary documen- CONT.

2 ,.,..... ~ , Friday November THE NAMIBIAN. PEOPLE Rock 'n roll WASHINGTON: Demo<rat Bill CIinton's victory in the US presidential elections - and his clarion call for change - will echo beyond official Washington to the ordinary citizens who live and work in the capital. ''We're gonna have rock 'n roll wackin' out of the White House - the beat for a new generation," said Curt Christenson, who runs a stand in Pennsylvania Avenue, within ~y earshot of the White House. Kid for sale NEW YORK: Police in the north-eastern us city of Portland say Elizabeth Nelson offered her nine-year-old daughter for sale in a hamburger restaurant. Nelson, 34, admits say-, ing to the child, ''I wonder if I could get 25 bucks for you," but it was meant as a joke. "The next thing I knew, the police were there." She was charged with endangering the welfare ofa child. * Reports: Sapa, AFP, AP Foreign'Affairs 'not to bladle... ' THE Ministry of Foreign Affairs has described information contained in an article titled ''NDF Left in the Dark Over UN Fleet" that appeared in The Namibian last week as incorrect. The report dealt with the sudden arrival of 13 UN helicopters in Oshakati witldut local Defence Force personnel apparently having been informed. Apart from causing panic in the area, a dangerous situation could have arisen as NDF members might have opened fire on the helicopters. At the time Defence Force spokesperson Paul Kanyemba attributed the breakdown in, communication to the lack of timely notification from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In a statement Foreign AffiUrs liaison officer 1heo Gnlnowald said the report wrongly gave the impression that Foreign Affairs granted landing right to the helicopters. Furthermore the impression was given that this was done as SANCTIONS FROM PAGE 1 had approved the lifting of sanctions by the City of Boston. The Namibian Government expressed gratitude to the US for sustained efforts in requesting mayors and country executives to re-examine ' sanctions legislation concerning Namibia. early as October 23 without notifying the Ministry of Defence. "1bat is absolutely incorrect. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs never granted landing rights," Grunewald stated. He explained that it was another ministry ~t had been in contact with UNA VEM in Luanda and made the arrangements for the transit of the helicopters.. UNA VEM had, in fact, neither approached the MiQistry of Foreign Affairs, nor the Namibianembassy in Luanda. Furthermore, it was clear from the correspondence that UNA VEM had b:een in touch with a senior official in one of the Government ministries long before the date quoted in The Namibian. According to GI11Jlewald, it had been up to that official to request ail the other relevant ministries to provide authorisation in line with their specific competencies. 'The MiQistry of Foreign. Affairs promptly indicated the diplomatic judgement requested from it, but the ministry would like to emphasise that it was not the point of entry for the request and it had no responsibility to have assumed work which should have been done by the ministry concerned," he added. HONOURED... Education Minister Nahas Angula receives his honorary membership of NEMAS from permanent secretary Vitalis Ankama, who was later given a fellowship award by the new society. New group links all levels of education TIlE Nanu'bia Educational Management and Administration Society (NEMAS) was officially inaugurated on Wednesday to promote "professional practice, teaching and research in education management and administration at all levels". The inauguration was attended by Education Minister Nahas Angula, permanent secretary Vitalis Ankama, University Vice Chancellor Peter Katjivivi and an impressive audience of Namibian and international educationists. NEMAS will be affiliated to the Commonwealth ' Council for Educational Ad- minstration, which was active in the establislunent of the new society and has members worldwide. In his address, Angula noted that "policy makers and administrators at the Ministry officers, researchers and lecturers at the University... and practitioners in the schools" were all present at the inauguration. "This augurs well for this country, for the common forum so established will remove the dichotomy that has bedevilled the work: of people engaged in the re-. search, study, planning and execution of administrative and management policies in education in this country,". court. Olivier is believed to be a South African as he is not known locally. This could not be confmned as Naude refused to comment. If granted, the appeal could bring down Schedule Five of the Constitution as well as the Electoral Act and a host of other laws enacted by the National Assembly recently to facilitate the regional and local elections in Namibia, including Rehoboth. Legal experts approached about the matter could only speculate on the aims of Diergaardt's alleged pending action. They agreed that any possible action would be aimed at Schedule 5 of the constitution, or that Diergaardt was prepiuirig litigation for the World Court at The Hague. They argued that airnlng at minor legislation like the Electoral Act 24 of 1992, the Regional Councils Act 22 of 1992 and the Local Authorities Act 23 of all of which provide for the holdhe said. Based on the idea that education must be professionally run for the benefit of the whole community, NEMAS will organise conferences, seminars and workshops on educational management and administration.. It will also give input on key educational issues and provide training in specific fields. 'The new society bestowed its first honorary and fellowship awards shortly after being inaugurated. MiDister Angola and Vice-Chancellor Katjivivi were made the first honorary members of the society. Rehoboth gebiet in two. It could also result in the elections being postponed. According to sources, several instructions were given to Naude as attorney and he has instructed a certain advocate, by the name of Olivier, to argue Diergaardt's case in tation.

Successfully contesting Schedule 5 WOUld, in effect, bring down all other legislation emanating from it. Judge President Johan Strydom, fonner chairman of the Delimitation Conunission, now chairman of the Electoral Commission, yesterday commented that nothing could stop Diergaardt-frorn taking such action. As a citizen it was h.is tight and the courts would have to decide on the issue when they receive the application. Strydom added that it might have implications for the electorai process, but said it was better to wait and see. Diergaardt is also preparing a law suit to be brought before the World Court in The Hague aimed at contesting the provisions of'schedule 5 of the Namibian Constitution which states that all authority over Rehoboth is now vested in the Goverrunent of Namibia

3 THE NAMIBIAN Friday November Only' a few women in regional poll UPDATE SWAPO and the DT A dominate a list of candidates for the regional elections, issued yesterday evening. With only a scattering of 'big names' or women candidates, the Khomas, Hardap and Otjozondjupa regions offered a slightly broader choice of three or four political parties. Independent candidates only appeared in Oshana, Ohangwena and the Caprivi, while residents of Aroab and Keetmanshoop will have to wait until next year to vote in specially arranged byelections: since no candidates had registered properly by Tuesday's IlhOO deadline. Swapo go into the regional elections with 13 candidates home and dry, since their election is un~pposeo. Ramming home the message - JOSEF MOTlNGA COMMUNAL farmers in the so~th have failed to make use of the Hardap progency testing centre, despite minimal charges for testing the quality of rams. Regional Commissioner of Hardap Ben Boois said communal farmers had made little use of the Hardap Karakul Centre apparently because they thought it was for commercial farmers only. The centre is designed to test the. quality-of rams agilinst given grades of ewes and was set up for use by both com- -mercial and communal farmers. Usually rams impregnate unsorted ewes so that farmers are unable to determine what type of lambs they will produce if mated with a particular quality of ewe., To solve this problem, &Pis said, the government had set up facilities for testing ram quality at the Hardap Karakul Centre. The N amibian talked to the Manager of - the Karakul Centre, Jan Piek, who explained the testing process in detail. Farmers are able to have rams tested for a period of 60 days at a cost of approxnnately R70. To qualify, farmers have to be registered with the Karakul Breeders' Association. Rams must weigh 35 kilos and be vaccinated against certain diseases. About test ewes were divided into two groups ac. cording to age and three groups according to hair quality. The semem of each ram was used on 32 ewes from different categories. After seeing the i-esultant lambs, a fanner could choose what type of ewes he wanted to breed from. The centre was now starting to freeze semen for sale to farmers around the country. - It was hoped to have this type of quality breeding introduced to other livestock, Piek said. Twelve of these are in the north, while one is at Oninjemund. Swanu has fielded 14 candidates, mainly in the Omaheke region, while the UDF has 11 and has focused on Erongo. 1be NPF's three candidates are standing at Katima Mulilo, Brandberg and Okakarara, while the Workers' Revolutionary Party's three candidates all have the same surname. DTA le~r Dirlc M~'s_ KA TE BURLlNG son, Henry (Heok), will be standing in the Windhoek West constituency, opposed by Mburumba Kerina for Swapo. In Windhoek East, it will be a run-off between DT A stalwart Ken Howes and Marietjie Pottas who is standing for Swapo. In the North, Peter Kalangula, well-known from pre-independence days, hopes to resurrect his career. He is standing as an independent at Ondangwa. Unionist John Pandeni, who already sits in the National Assembly, will be contesting the Soweto constituency in Katutura wherehe will run against DT A leader Katuutire Kaura's wife, Victorine. A number of former Swapo-D members feature among DT A candidates in the North. For the local (municipal) elections, the six main parties are joined by candidates from Marierital, Windhoek and Swakopmund residents associations. According to Elections Directorate PRO, Vitura Kavari, the local elections have a better representation of women candidates, as required by law. "Overall, there are more High spending candidates than I expected," HARARE: The exhorbitant expenditure by the said Kavari.

When he or she is standing for the DTA! It might seem obvious, but residents at Liideritz are unhappy with the way candidates professing they "would have preferred to stand as independents" ~ being sneaked in under the DTA banner. Publicity fi ysheets for at least two candidates in the forthcoming elections are circulating in Luderitz, and while they 'confess DTA allegiance, they -do all they can to convince voters ~t they are actually independent. In other words, Mathilde Giihring and John Gillham, to -name but two, adopt an independent pose while standing firmly in the DTA camp. Moreover, their publicity letters are identical, apart -from - the inserticn of individual names and a couple of personal rants. In particular, they both distance themselves from politics in thq following: "I still uphold the conviction that political interference in this type of election to be contrary to everything I believe in. However, the powers that be have forced this upon us and I feel we should counter this with every means at our disposal." As they stand with their bands on their hearts declaring their fundamental independence, both candidates claim they have been driven to fly the DTA banner "to avoid splitting the vote", while assuring voters they have "no politicai aspira- UNIT A claims of bombers and other war machinery being set up around Namibia ready for an offensive are 'ridiculous' said Defence Minister Peter Mueshihange yesterday. He was reacting to allegations in Unita radio broadcasts monitored last week in Britain. - Unita broadcasters claimed four bombers are waituig at Rundu, while on October 26 eight helicopters were sent to northemnamibia. They added large munbers of Angolan government troops were heading towards the Namibian borders, where sophisticated Soviet MiG-29s are waiting to attack Unita. They also claimed 84 vehicles with "heavily-armed Swapo soldiers" had gone to Ndjiva. Yesterday Mueshihange said: - "Uruta cannot in any way substantiate its claims of MPLA assault preparations from the Namibian soil. There is no MPLA troops presence in the areas mentioned. TIlls a blatant lie." He explained the helicopters were under the control of the United Nations and had passed through Oshakati to Walvis Bay for shipping out. Journalists visited the 13 helicopters before. they were shipped out. "It is even ridiculous for Unita to claim MPLA bombers hidden in Windhoek," added Mueshihange. "I dismiss the accusation with the contempt it deserves." Unita radio broadcasters are also reporting that large numbers of "FAPLA, Cuban and Swapo" troops are being deployed in the Caprivi as part of "war-mongering actions", They also claimed that MPLA operated "dozens of polling booths" in 'Namibia and that many Namibians were moving into Angola to vote illegally in the second round of presidential elections. United Nations elections monitors have-dismissed the claim of polling booths in Namibia. tions in this town". Both also employ a few scare tactics ("we stand a real danger of having completely incompetent people in charge of this town"), but Gillham goes further in his vision of the apocalypse. He sees Liideritz turning into_ a nightmare of "constant electricity cuts... constant water shortages... no sanitary or sewerage services". He warns that "pennission (will be) granted to vagrants to build shanty towns in the middle of Liideritz, your rates and taxes used to refurbish a football field and any complaints to your local councillor will depend on your political leanings. " Local residents are angry at the implicit racism of the letters. One compiained that the Taxi driver of the year THE last phase of the Southem Estates and Wemhil Park 'Taxi Driver of the Year Competition' will be staged at Wernhil Park this Saturday, November 7. The pennanent secretary of Transport and Communication Peingeodjambi Shipoh will open the proceedings at 09h30 on Saturday. The 10 finalists, who were selected from 350 contestants this week after a written test on road safety, will fight it out in a series of tests designed to assess their driving skills to finally detennine the best taxi driver of the year.,.. Meanwhile, Nabta has _ warned the public and taxi drivers in particular to beware of certain foreigners who are trying to recruit taxi drivers. These people are apparently pretending to be NABT A officials and recruiting members for their own benefit. Nabta' s 1bomas Mulunga warned taxi drivers to request some identification before accepting any membership offer. Mulunga also warned the peopie involved in this activity to stop immediately. letters were only being "distributed among the white people of Liideritz", adding that "these people in no way are working towards reconciliation". The complainer also urged fellow residents to "be aware of people who do not recognise you as human beings". It has been noted with surprise that the DT A has managed to field a number of candidates in areas which would nonnally be Swapo strmgholds. It seems one ploy may have been to disguise their candidates as independents - ''Normally, I do not unload any kind of political scheme on anyone" (Giihring) or, alternatively, "I am not accustomed to unburdening any kind of politicll:l scheme on my fri~nds" (Gillham). SA AIDS fear PRETORIA: Health authorities in South Africa said yesterday they feared the number of AIDS victims in South-Africa was much higher than was currently known. A health -omcial sald 201 people had developed full-blown AIDS since the end of June this year. The'latest ftgures pushed the total of,aids sufferers to since ''There is reason to believe that only a fraction of actual new cases have indeed been reported," he said.

6 6 Friday November THE NAMIBIAN P LITICAL PEOPLE AND EVENTS PERSPECTIVE Democracy BV GVVEN LI S TER UNLIKE one of his men tors, US President George Bush, Jonas Savimbi did. not accept his election defeat - graciously. The fighting that broke out once again in Angola following Savimbi's contention that the elections, held late in September, were rigged by the MPLA Government, is tragic and could have been avoided if the Unita leader had submitted himself to the will of the people. What further compli.' cated matters was the small size of the UN contingent. WHAT is even more tragic is the fact that the monster that is Savimbi today, was created largely by the South Mrican and US Governments. They built him up in the image of a champion of.democracy in a country under 'communist' rule. And now even they cannot control his hunger for power at all costs. While few people dispute that there is substantial support for Unita in Angola, it is regrettable that the movement is led by a man with such gross tendencies of meg~omania. And South Africa and the US must take a lot of the blame. Savimbi would not have become what he is today had it not been for their adulation and support. Given the 'red carpet' treatment when he was in the US, or in South Mrica for that matter, he managed to fool them all into thinking he was a person of stature. The Bush Administration, and the Reagan era before it, were notorious for exercising wrong judgements about leaders, particularly in Mrica; We recall how Namibia's President, Sam Nujoma, was villified by the Reagan Administration, humiliated by 6eing restricted to'certain areas when he visited that country, labelled a 'communist' and 'terrorist'. Diplomats openly bemoaned the fact that if Swapo won the elections, he would become Pr-esident: nteywt!r~ wronit,atfd toc:l1i~ theyare awa~ of,the error of-their ways! FOl"th-e went on to become a President who was 'the architect of the policy of reconciliation, who become one of the biggest proponents of democracy and who held out the olive branch to his former enemies. And they iluide an error-of judgement about Savimbi as well. The man they hailed as one of the true leaders of Africa went on to demonstrate his power.hungry ways by ignoring the ballot and turning back to the bullet to cause, in the space of a few days, the deaths of at least fellow Angolans. The man whom they believed wanted democracy, was really only interested in personal power. Yet they armed him and funded him into becoming the power hungryperson he is today. In a sense, the international community must bear some of the responsibility for what has happened in Angola as far as the fighting is concerned. Had the United Nations been able to mount a bigger operation there as far as peacekeeping and election monitoring was concerned, then the escalation of violence might have been avoided and Saviinbi would not have been, able to cry 'foul'. Namibia, a country with a signifi. cantly smaller population than its northern neighbour, had a sizeable UN contingent of several thousand, and we do believe this is one of the reasons the whole 435 process went relatively smoothly. But in Angola there were but a few hundred UN personnel, and far too many guns. We hope that for the next round of Presidential elections in Angola, the UN will increase its contingent. What would probably g~ towards facilitating this is a decision by the new Democratic Clinton Administration to pay the country's UN dues! The US could also con tribute more substantially in terms of people to the UN contingent in Angola, and maybe the man who initially took the decision to support Unita, Henry Kissinger, could head up the delegation! Namibia was a success story for the UN; ~ngola is not, and this is probably purely because of their almost in. significant presence there. I trust that the same mis takes will not be repeated in Mozambique. And as for Savimbi, the sooner his former bosses get a tough message to him, the better. And the US should be wary of the African 'leaders' they 'adopt' in the futur~ t ' USE YOUR LOAF... is what Gibeon community baker Anna Diba (left) and other bakers, including Tobias Paulus, decided to do and now they run one of the town's new thriving community businesses.

They also sang and their communal work seemed to keep spirits up despite the drought gripping the town. - tlie-tour. THE MISSION: To fmd out if democracy and develop ment are flourishing in eastern and southern Namibia?, The team: Nora Owen MP, Brendan Howlin MP and former Senator Katharine Bulbulia (all from Ireland), Hans Gunther TOtemeyer MP (Germany) and Brigitte Husmark MP (Denmark). Driven by Lucky Iyambo of Oxfam UK & Ireland, and guided by agricultural extension workertjitjahuma Ujava and Pintile Davids of the Namibia Com-' munity Co-operatives' Alliance.. Monday, October 26, 14hOO: At a Windhoek hotel, Speaker of the National Assembly Mose Tjitendero and elections director Gerbard Tote!p.eyer (younger brother of the visiting German MP) briefed them on the regional and local council elections. Other briefings came from Netumbo Ndaitwah of the Namibia National Women's Organisation and other women's groups at the Namibian Women's Centre in Katutura, from the NCCA, Rossing Foundation and the UnitedN a lions Children's FUnd (Unicef). The women stressed the need for opportunities for older women to get education and other steps such as paid maternity leave to make the fine aspirations of the Constitution into a reality for women. their various elections programmes. Debate flowed freely with mutual respect and order, and the meeting recommended the election code of conduct should be signed by every local candidate, not just at headquarters. 13hOO: Out on the road again, the team headed to Drimiopsis where people, 'many of Bushman origin, have been gathering since Most came from commercial farms to a secondary school to beg food. Now there are tents and soon prefabricated homes for the 500 or so residents 'and a kindergarten. Activists (currently 1beopolina Nantanga of French agency CRlAA and Karina Akwaake of the Ministry of Lands, Resettlement and Rehabilitation) and international donors. have helped set up a community garden now supplying up to 260 kilograms a week of vegetables to Global Catering for the school hostels. But problems of getting people to work for themselves and social organisation continue, partly because on farms people were only labourers and depended on the boss for everything - "a 'culture of dependency" as Nantanga PI!! it.

7 THE NAMIBIAN- No news on land is notgoodne~ GOBABIS GET-TOGETHER... Candidates and p oliticians of all parties, together with health, education and other wor kers and regional commissioner Brave Tjizera (back centre) meet the visitors at Gobabis. Democracy - the tour CONTINUED F ROM PA GE 6 the courtesy with which all spoke. As well as election issues such as a late registration surge, they heard of street gangs, education and family problems. On the edge of the town's location, they visited the Shalom gardening project which brings together unemployed able (23). and disabled (10) people. The greenery and flourishing garden does not bring a smile to the mainly women workers as neighbours break in and steal the vegetables they grow. Further South at Mariental, after lunch, R~gional Commissioner.Ben Boys spoke of problems with drought relief and in helping eommunal fanners buy commercial farms. His staff had organised a meeting of local candidates, teachers and health and women's activists. Unfortunately the local DT A decided to boycott (Mayor JJ Burger said it was over Awepaa backing the distribution in Namibia of a "racist" booklet written for Dutch primary schools) but the people who did attend told of the problems of reconciliation and integration in a town where IlilIny white citizens are not interested. The last few minutes before sunset were taken spotting ostrich, red zebra, eland and gemsbok in Hardap reserve before bedding down.. the town's spectacular 125-yearold church. A chance encoun-. ter with Labour and Manpower Development Minister Hendrik Wifuooi and thm into the Swapo office where Swapo candidates discussed the election. Other parties didnot arrive. One candidate said it was traditionally not good to go around and ask for support, but the gardening women had earlier said they doubted whether any cl ldidate or politician would bother to ask about their concerns. There was also a lack of understanding about how the elections would work and a community bias" to male candidates. Back in Windhoek, the mis ~ sion was rounded up with a report to last week's joint conference on democratization and reconciliation organised by the Council of Churches in Namibia and the Association of West European Parliamentarians for Action against Apartheid. All mission members said they were impressed with how well democracy had taken root. Team leader Owen gave the formal report, highlighting land reform and communal farming problems, street children, registration and the health and education challenges they had heard about Most of the people working on project are women and raising the subject ofhusbands provoked general hilarity at most places, and goodhumoured cries of "we can do without them". The signs were STUNNING is the only word to describe Gibeon' s 125- year-old church, and the pastor's wife (left) showed them around. they could. Owen concluded the mission was accomplished: "I want to pay warm tribute to the Namibian people who have taken on the mantle of democracy with diligence and enthusiasm. Despite the still huge job to provide the resources and infrastructure in remote areas, there is a sincere recognition that the government has a difficult task and is tackling what they can. We were heartened by how freely people of all walks of life felt free to criticize, discuss and argue without fear of retribution. " Friday, October 30: The road into Gibeon is marked by a gruesome dead horse, but in the town an atmosphere of hope prevails. Community baker Anna Diba explained her business of selling 350 loaves a day to the town's schools and people, and her plans to expand. A new oven was boug;.1.t with credit from NCCA and a grant from the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. Down in the valley, up to 130 women and a few men are turning the bare ground green. Pastor Daniel Claasen set up the garden, but now the community are showing their skills and enthusiasm for gardening and songs.

Report and photographs: Tom Minney THE home-coming of Damaras to a spot by Daan Vllji>en game park in the prime farming lands of Khomas Hochland (which they were chased off under 30 years ago) shows Namibia cannot wait any longer for action after last year's land conference. Damaraland and some other communal areas are bare. Many farmers have watched half their animals dropping dead and are now passing hot days moving weak animals for kilometres before watching the rest die too. Destitution is staring many in the face, and it is only natural to remember the quality of the lands they had before. The issue isnot Damaraland, and it will not be solved by such population movements, however desperate. The June 1991 land conference resolved that "something practicable must be done to rectify" past injustice, but added "given the complexities in redressing ancestral land claims, restitution. of such clalms in full is impossible". This was a key concession by communal farmers, and there is no going back on it. The conference was a miracle of nation-building. But to have heard nothing further for 16 months destroys its success and leaves us facing environmental and farming disaster. The drought has only speeded up the environmental destruction of communal farmjands. Larger communal farmers have up to cattle in "peasant" areas and many are grabbing good bits ofland with illegal fencing, while the destitute are cutting the remaining trees'to sell for firewood to survive. Alr eady the drought is leading to a whole range of emergency measures such as the drilling of boreholes which ar e needed but may not prove such a good idea in the long ter m. Despite welcome r ecent moves, we are still waiting for a national agricultural policy. Proper land and farming policies would prepare us even to deal with Namibia's frequent droughts and help us take the urgent steps to restore local control of the environment and start its recovery. _ Without clear guidelines on land issues, agricultural workers admit it is ahn"ost impossible to start the agricultural tralning and development policies vital to these areas. Meanwhile, neither investors nor wary farmers - communal and commercial - know what is coming. All over Africa nations have learnt they neglected food production and farming, especially peasant, at the cost of fast-growing cities, huge imports, poverty, u~employment m:td national debt. Is Namibia proving unable to learn the lesson? Rather than temporary emergency measures to deal with drought, let us have a )Ugher priority on bringing som.e legal and practical result from the land conference. A long-silent technical committee has not even pronounced on issues about commercial land and no-one seems to be doing anything about the accelerating disaster in communal lands. If nothing happens, much more of Namibia could become lifeless deserts and movements of desperate people and their dying animals a common sight. The people who suffered most from past land injustices cannot afford to walt much longer. for land and agric~ltura l policies. A Receptionist/ Junior Secreta'ry is needed for our Windhoek Office.

NBC gives free time to parties THE NBC has announced that in the rwi-up to the regional and local elections, it has allocated ''free air-' time" for contesting parties and organisations to put across their election messages. The allocation was worked out with the contesting parties and is based on a formula used during elections in many countries throughout the world The number of c~dates per party was divided by the total number of candidates and multiplied by the total airtime available. There will be 250 minutes free air-time on radio and 50 minutes free air-time on TV each week. The NBC had previously decided that it would not accept. paid advertising as this would favour parties with the most money. Although the allocation of air-time according to the number of candidates is not ideal as it favours parties with the most candidates, the NBC considers it the fairest solution under the circumstances. The time allocation formula was agreed to by the majority of contesting parties which accepted an invitation from the NBC to discuss it. The Workers' Revolutionary Party opposed the formula on the grounds that it did not give equal air-time to all the parties, regardless of their size. It has been decided that the three community associations contesting the elections will be given a five-minute TV slot on Wednesday, November 18, as well as two radio slots of five' minutes each on the radio services of their choice during any of the Wednesday Election Billboard programmes. As well as the allocation of free air-time, the NBC will be covering one public rally of each contesting political party and one rally of each of the community associations.

UN special representative to Mozambique, AIdo Ajello, opened the meeting on Wednesday with a strong call for an end to all military activity. The Control and Supervisory Commission (CSC) is fonned of government and Renamo delegations, with representatives of the OrganisationofAfrican Unity, France, Italy, Britain. the United States and Portugal. The ceasefire has been badly shaken by renewed fighting in the north of the country where Renamo seized four towns in mid-october. The government has now retaken all but one of these. ''If the principle of retaliation is accepted as a nonn" the entire peace process will be in danger." AjeUo warned, urging the government and Renamo to refer any complaint over ceasefire violations to "the appropriate commissions." He promised a "massive presence" of UN military observers "and maybe some troops." So far there are only 20 military observers in Mozambique, insufficient to carry out the UN's tasks, outlined in an October 4 peace agreement, 'of coordinating all troop movements and supervising the 49 assembly points where the. government and rebel forces are supposed to gather. Under a very tight timetable, government and rebel forces should have been in. assembly points by midnight on October 20,. but so far this movement ' has not even started. WOMAN OF PEACE...

Die NBC het oolangs riglyne uitgereik oor die wyse waarop kyktyd aan politieke part ye toegestaan sal word. In 'n verklaring het die korporasie gese dit voorsien probleme wanneer dit kom by die hoeveelheid uitsaaityd wat aan die verskillende partye toegestaan moet word en het besluit om nie bet~de advertensies van part ye te gebruik nie. Hierdie besluit is geneem' om nie die part ye met baie geld en wat meer advertensies kan koop te bevoordeel nie. Daarom is besluit om ' n totaal van 250 minute op alle radiodienste en 50 minute op televisie weekliks uit te sit vir partye wat hul standpunte wil bekend maak. Hietdie tyd sal proporsioneel volgens hul aantal kandidate aan die partye beskikbaar gestel word. Groepe wat die meeste kandidate aanwys sal meer tyd kry. Dit sal nie m09ntlik wees om alle belanghebbendes tevrede te stel ten opsigte van die hoeveelheid lugtyd wat toegestaan word nie en tot tyd en wyl terugvoering van die partye ontvang is word proporsionele toekenning beskou as die mees regverdige onder omstandighede. 'n Fiets, is 'n fiets 'n LESING deur Ombudsman, Fanuel Kozonguizi, oor die Beginsels van Verkiesingsverantwoordelikbede, Woensdag, by die akademie, bet interessante sienings oor die saak opgelewer en weereens bewys die spreker het as politikus en regskenner diep en belder insigte oor die konsep demokrasie ontwikk~1. Veral die oproep tot verantwoording deur politieke part ye is 'n saa~_wat lank reeds aaogespreek beboort te wees, reeds aangespreek en weer aangespreek sal m~t word" veral as daar na die rekords van Namibiese politieke partye gekyk moet word., Namibiese party het daarvoor bekend geword dat bul kort voor 'n verkiesing soos paddastoele verrys en woeker en weer na die verkiesing in 'n diepe slaap wegsink. Daar kan baie daarop verbeter word.. 'n Vraagstuk wat opgekom bet tydens die lesing is: ''Waar l~ die morele verantwoordelikbeid om inwoners op te voed en inte IIg oor die werkinge van die demokrasie. Die Ombudsman bet aangevoer dit I~ prim~r by die poiitieke partye en verder die weg oopgelaat vir ander instansies wat ook daarby betrokke wo raak. Daar kan geen probleme met so 'n standpunt ondervind word nie behalwe miskien 'n paar bedenkinkies oor die praxis daarvan, gesien in die lig van die ' rekords van poiitieke part ye, en moontlik 'n ietwat pragmatiese siening van die behoeftes van inwoners. Daar bestaan 'n beboefte om inwoners in te lig oor die demokrasie, daaroor bestaan daar geen twyfel nie. Dit is verder die pjig van politieke part ye om..dit te doen, ook geen twyfel nie. Indien die praktiese situasie in ag geneem word laat dit, ons--jnet twee.opsies. OIls, stllit is' die.:"ej!ailtwootd el lkhei(ft ~:: '!e' van politieke partye en basta, 'maak nie saak wat bul doen Die of and er instansies gryp in om die situasie te red. Albei opsies bou natuurlik weei' gevare in, maar dit eenkan t gelaat. Die platform by die akademie bet aan die Ombudsman beboort maar dit sou miskien Die onvanpas wees om bier ' n verdere mening oor die demokrasie te stel nie. Indien ons tussen die twee opsies moes kies sou ek, met omstandigbede in Namibie in ag geneem, die tweede eeo neem, naamlik om inwoners deur die een of and er instelling in te lig oor die demokrasie. Hierdie standpunt is gebore uit die oortuiging dat die poiitieke verskynsel, Demokrasie, slegs berkenbaar is vanwee 'n paar uitsluitlike kenmerke wat dit onderskei en waaroor konsensus bereik kan word. Miskien loop ek die gevaar van oorvereenvoudiging maar wu se dit is amper soos 'n fiets. 'n Fiets, is 'n fiets vir Swapo, DTA, UDF, NNF, NPF en ACN. Dit is 'n raamwerk, gewoonlik van staal of bout, met ofsonder 'n sitplek, vir een of me er persone, met ten minste een wiel, in die meeste gevalle twee wiele, kan pedaalaangedrewe wees, met 'n ketting, bandvatsels om mee te stuur ensovoorts, ensovoorts. Dit is nie om u intelligensie te onderskat nie maar om die argument toeganklik te maak vir a1mal. Ek weet bierdie tipe redenasie kan tot oneindige onsionigbeid lei en later 'n mens beel deurmekaar maak. Veral as iemand verbykom wat nie weet wat 'n wiel is nie maar togwu weetwat 'n fiets is, 6findien ons ditverder wu verfyn en onfeubaar wu maak deur te se wat is 'n 'n raamwerk, wat is staal, bout, 'n sitplek, ensovoorts, ensovoorts. Die poging is egter om die punt te maak en nie om in onsinnigheid te verval nie. Politieke partye kan voorafkonsensus bereik oorwat bul as die essensies van demokrasie in Namibie beskou. Hierdie essensies, wu ek aanvoer, behoort deur die nasionale radiociienste, binne skole, binne kerke, bin ne ge, meenskapsbewpgs ~~ alle liggame wat as geskik vir die doel beskou kan word~ deurentyd aan a1mal bekend ge- ~ w~td. :-" u _;... _.4 ;:... (..:. ~~... <. >;:.~. - ' ~.: ";..t~ - '~ ~ Wanneer ons die essensies niergele-het kan partye dit verder voer tot by die vlak waar verskulende sienings oor die demokrasie moontllk kan raak. Wanneer hierdie vlak bereik word, die viak waarby die interne dinamiek van die stelsel in beweging kom en wanneer persone binne die vryheid wat deur die stelsel aan hul gegun word, kan gaan en waarde-oordele daaroor maak -kan ons se die stelsel bet tot sy reg binne Namibie gekom. Ons sal lank wag as politieke partye dit moet doen en moontlik befoeter bulle dit ook nog.

15 THE NAMIBIAN Kozo vra vir verantwoording OMBUDSMAN Fanuel Kozooguizi bet Woensdagaand by 'n openbare lesing aan die Akademie ge~ : "Onkunde oor die gereg is Die aanvaarbaar as regverdiging vir die pleeg van. 'n onwettige daad of. die versuim van 'n wettige verpligtj.og nie." Hierna se by die meerderbeid van inwoners in die.. land verstaan nie Eogels nie maar alle wette insluitende die basiese wet, die konstitusie word opgestel io Eogels. In reaksie op '0 vraag..~ hy later dit is nie 00- moontlik: of onwettig om die konstitusie in ander tale beskikbaar te stel nie. Kozonguizi het die lesing gelewer vir '0 aantal. studerite, akademici, politlci eo belangstellendes aan die Akademie by wat deur Visekanselier, Peter Katjavivi, _beplan word as 'n forum waar gereelde maandelikse gesprekke gehou sal word. Kozooguizi se dit kan nooit regverdig wees wanneer inwooers oet aandring op regte in terme van die konstitusie nie maar hul eie verpligtinge aan die regeriog oor te laat oie. Daarom behoort bul deel. te neem aan die verkiesiogs.. Hy het vir verantwoording deur politici gevra eo gese inwoners het die reg om as groepe hul politieke leiers na hul te roep om eoige onduidelikhede wat met die komende verkiesings of eoige saak bestaan uit te klaar. Dit is die verpligting van veral politici om die demokrasie verstaanbaarte maak aan hul kiesers. Kozonguizi het vetwys na die afskaffing van die doodstraf in die land en gese die skrywers van die konstitusie het in navolging van internasion ale praktyke dit as barbaars beskou. Daarom is dit afgeskaf. Na die afskaffing daarvan het 'n debat in die land ontstaan oor die doodstraf en wou inwoners van die leiers weet Radio-aktiewe testikels 'n liegstorie 4" EARTHLIFE isbewu~ ~.dat, ' van die.storting vanafval in voorkom asof 'dit ignoreer geen radio-aktiewe stortings die gebied yind ~e.

Rumpf se die Intemasionale Ato'omenergie-agentskap het ondersoeke aan die kus gedoen en kon geen blyke wie hul die reg gegee het om dit te doen. Hieroorwou hy weet of die skrywers van die konstitusie leiers van die volk was of verteenwoordigers van die volk. Indien hul verteenwdordigers was sou hul die volk se mening aangevra het voor dit deel van die konstitusie kon raak. Op 'n vraag of die begroting van R12-miljoen vir die verkiesings regverdig is terwyl ander probleme in die land ervaar word, se hy: "Demokrasie is 'n duur proses." Hierdie ' uitgawes moes reeds met die skryf van die konstitusie in ag geneem wees. Die konstitusie bepaal dat verkiesings gehou moet wordendaarvoormoetdaar.,1)etaal word om die veiligheid van, demokrasie in Qie land te.verseker..

19 THE NAMIBIAN Friday Novemb~ r :19 History repeats I WAS really delighted and pleased to read an article published in The Namibian of Wednesday 21 October entitled 'ANC faces up to its detainee saga'. History has repeated itself once again. The African National Congress of Sou,qt Africa, ANC, has _once again showed the world its maturity and sense of honesty and ope~ess to accept ~e ultimate responsibility for the human rights abuses which took place during its years of struggle. Through this the organisation's leadersrup has demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that they are a leadership fighting to unite thl: peopl~ of South Africa irrespective of colour or tribal origin. This demonstrates a clear policy of national reconciliation. Today the ANC is not ashamed to accept this responsibility and this will definitely unite the people of South Africa who might otherwise have been separated by the detainee saga. This is how a courageous and responsible leaderships acts and accounts to its own people. Now lets look at our own picture. The ruling party, Swapo, has its own detainee drama which started way back in the 1980s. The present action of the ruling party as far as this issue is concerned is not to unite the people of this country, but to divide them along ethnic lines. Till today families are divided and brother and sister do not sit at the same fire because of the detainee issue. People of one family do not talk to one another becau se of the notorious Swapo security which brought animosity and hatred among those detained aniftliose v';furwere nop: in the dungeo~~ ~ '< - ~ ": ~ <if. Since the whole Swapo spy drama was centred along tribal lines, to~y there is no hatmony between those from Owambo and other groups due to. the fact ihat the issue had been masterminded to depict such a picture. In fact all guards were Owambo-spei!king and anyone from other tribes in Namibia were Uatumwa (sent by the enemy). Swapo has promised the people of Namibia a list of people who went missing during the liberation war. This list was believed to have been completed before the Swapo Congress and a full year has passed but no list has been released. Mr President, I call upon you to follow the example of Nelson Mandela when he told reporters in Nairobi that the ANC had rnade a mistake in detaining these people - you will lose nothing by doing so. Otherwise your cries for reconciliation will not reach deep into our hearts and souls. To think that this issue will die a natura:! death is arrogant. As long as Swapo decides not to account, withdraw all the false allegations and apologise, then the organisation will be shoulder-to-shoulder with the South African Government in terms of dishonesty and criminality. JOHANNES IIMELEKA BRlNKWATER Note: This letter has been shortened - Ed. Rossing on Dropkin MR Greg Dropkin (The Namibian 16 October 1992) continues to distort the truth in his attempts to smear Rossing. 1be following is a factual response to his four points: * Whole body dose calculations based on records from 1977 show that radiation exposures at Riissing have always been well below the recommended limit of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP). * Mr Dropkin confuses the industrial hygiene chemical toxicity standard with the ICRP Derived Air Concentration radiation limit, thus comparing apples with pears in order to malre a fhlse allegation against Rossing. In fact, since 1976 Rossing has adhered to the dose limitation principles of the ICRP and has applied a heavy metal toxicity standard for uranium in accordance with the American Conference on, Governmental and Industrial Hygienists and the UK Health and Safety Executive. * The concentration ofthorium 230 in dust at Rossing is calculated by using aninternationally acceptable method. Thorium 230 is a decay product of Uranium 238 and, as equilibrium is assumed between the two nuclides, the contribution of Thorium 230 to the internal dose can be calculated. Tests have also been carried out for its presence in water. In' both cases the concentration of Thorium 230 has found to be very low. "" *.In ref~p;jhg toc-a:n1tllege:a7: 'escape' from the Rossing tailings dam, Mr Dropkin chooses to ignore the 'fact that the dam is designed for tailings liquid to pass through the filter toe to the seepage collection dam for recycling in the plant. Controls have certainly ' improved since 1980 with cutoff trenches and dewatering wells removing any seepage before it reaches major drainage lines and well before it intersects the mine's boundary fence. Rossing's water management is carried out to the satisfaction of the relevant government ministry. How strange that in his letter Mr Dropkin does not make reference to the audit by Rossing by a multi-disciplinary team led by the International Atomic Energy Agency at the request.of the Namibian Government. Ideologically-motivated critics ofrossing such as Mr Dropkin have been campaigning for some time for an inspection of Rossing by international experts but now that it has happened, and the verdict is favourable to Rossing, Mr Dropkin prefers to pretend that the audit did not take place. It is worth repeating here what the!aea said:... Radiation safety and general occupational safety at Rossing Mine is of a high standard.... Medical surveillance of employees and their families is excellent. * Radiation exposure levels at Rossing Mine are very low - much lower than current international limits. At such low levels of ex osure the probability of radiation-induced occupational illness appearing is very low.... The accuracy of radiation monitoring carried out by Rossing is reliable.... Mill tailings management at Rossing is of a good standard. It conforms to worldwide statc of the art. In the face of such evidence, why does Mr Dropkin persist with his cru.1paign ofvillification against Rossing? Logic must tell him' that the company's employees are not at risk. Therefore what are his motives? Perhaps he has invested so much energy fu his attempts to destroy Rossing that for him to accept the truth about the company now would mean admitting to himself that he. has wasted years chasing shadows. Thus he redoubles his efforts, regardless of the potential cost to the employees of Rossip.g or to the government and people of Namibia.

Another trap of the neo colonialist was the transition, following de-. colonisation, to a western liberal democratic government. Thus, political surface representation changes but the socio-economic conditions remain. In the words of Samora Machel, "it is the continuation of the oppressive regime, this time with black rulers, which is the pattern of neo-colonialrevolutionary identities by surrounding themselves by the luxuries of mansions, private aeroplanes and the like.

21 THE NAMIBIAN I ' Friday November From page 22 morial Ground. Strauss, who played well at eighthman for the Boles in the drawn two-test series against France last month, is respected as a utility forward. '-.... His cleaning-up abilities around the scrums _~d his speed to breakdown points will be an asset to the BokE as they smooth down the rough edges prior to the one-off test against England at Twickenham on November 14. Strauss forced his way into the touring party following the retirement' of veteran No 8 Jannie Breedt and has grabbed. his chances with both hands. The side for Saturday includes 10 players who did duty against the Midlands in Leicester and, the selectors reckon, it will- closely resemble the line-up that trots out at Twick-. enham. At least five Boks probably played themselves into test reckoning with classy performances ina res~)unding 32-9 win ;It Leicester. Fullback Theo van Rensburg has done enough to displace Hugh Reece-Edwards, while lock Drikus Hattingh has turned his tour around and was probably the best Bok loose forward on view on Wednesday. Prior to that, he was merely a plodder. The entire frontrow of He inrich Rodgers, Keith Andrews and hooker Willie Hills rose to the challenge on that occasion to do their test chances plenty ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE Team P W Blackburn 14 7 Norwich 14 8 Arsenal 14 8 Aston Villa 14 6 Q Park Rangers 14 6 Coventry City 14 6 Manchester Utd 14 5 Ipswich 14 4 Manchester.City 14 5 Chelsea 14 5 Middlesbrough 14 4 Leeds United 14 4 ShefWednesday 14 4 Liverpool 14 4 Shef United 14 4 Oldham 14 3 Tottenham 14 3 Wimbledon 14 3 Southampton 14 3 Everton 14 3 Crystal Palace 14 1 NotlhamForest 14 2 D L GF GA PTS of good. Before that match, the tight trio were told that if they came through a tough test they could well be rewarded with test places. They came through unscathed and showed they are ready to do South Africa proud against the mighty England pack. Apart from Van Rensburg, the backline for Saturday resembles the one which did reasonably well in the French tests. Centres Danie Gerber and Pieter Muller are all but assured of retaining their test spots, but wingers Jacques Olivier and James Small will. need solid showings in Bristol to reinforce their claims. Their rivals, Pieter Hendriks and Deon Oosthuysen, again caught the attention of the selectors with sharp perfo~e s on Wednesday. And, in fact, the entire backline showed just what they are capable of given enough of the ball So, once again. it all comes down to the forwards. and how much possession they can claim. 1here is-no questioning the credentials of halfbacks Naas Botba and Gartb. Wrigbt. which put the pressure firmly on the pack. Team: Theo van Rensburg; Jacques Olivier, Danie Gerber.

Working for a better future BRISTOL, England: There was no place for battle-weary Danker WahI 'Bartmann in a ' virtual shadow Test team named by the Springbok rugby REFS MUST COME CLEAN selectors yesterday for the match against England B JUST when everyone was hoping that things were 'improving for Namibian football, local referees let the side here on Saturday. In fact, it became unlikely down during the epic Premier L~gue outing between that the fiery Natal player Mrican Stars and Mukorob Tigers at the SKW Field on would see any further action on this historic tour. And to add insult to injury one referee even accused the Wednesday night which Tigers won 2-1. Although he is laid low league of being responsible for the latest disaster when with only a minor shoulder hundreds of soccer fans were made to wait for a full injury, su,stained in Wednesday's encounter against the The whole drama apparently started after senior refe hour before a match official was located., Midlands, the selectors intimated that he no longer the match, refused on the grounds that he was not ree Dios Engelbrecht, who was initially appointed for, figured in their plans. preparred to handle such a crucial match after a long In a move that was not ' lay-ott.

' To page 21 Referee August Gaseb, who happens to be an ex-black Mrica player, offered to handle the match. However, ' this was rejected by a Tigers official because of the present tension between the two teams which are both fighting to avoid relegation. ' It was thanks to referee Shakes Kandenge, whose leg was still in plaster a'few weeks ago, wfiotqok up the challenge, virtually hopping around the pitch on one leg. This kind of refereeing problem is totally unacceptable and I think the time has come for the NF A to pressurise the referee's association to affiliate themselves to the mother body. A furious Elifas Shipanga, acting-chairperson of the NF A, told me during the match on Wednesday that the situation was getting out of hand and that the referees should :get their act together. I cannot understand how the Referee's Association can refuse to be affiliated to the NF A when their chairperson Ben Uanivi is a member of the NFA's executive. This situation must be addressed by the NFA if they want to take disciplinery steps against the referees. And the Referee's Association, which is part and parcel of the football scene, should be affiliated to the elected soccer controlling body in this country as it is elswhere in the world. In the present state of affairs, the right of the Referees' Association to handle matches under the auspices of the NF A is questionable as they are an autonomous organisation. CONGRATULATIONS AFRICAN STARS! AND now on a lighter note. I must congratulate Mrican Stars for their second cup victory of the season. By beating Ramblers FC in last Saturday's Metrop,olitan Life Champion of Champions cup final, Stars earned RIO 000 prize money, gold medals and tracksuites. The Katutura giants also became the first local side to win two major cup competitions in one season since the Premier League was founded three years ago. A great achievement for a team that two season's ago was 'forced to take part in the national play-oft's to escape relegation to the First Division. The Stars success story is even mor remarkable for after ending runners-up to Kraatz Welding Eleven Arrows in last year's league championships, they became the first Namibian side to represent our country in the newly-launched CAF Cup competition. Having clinched the Castle Classic championships earlier this year, Stars can be considered strong candidates for Black Africa's title as Namibia's cup kings. Well dorie Stars and may next season be even better! lintas:namibia 92/2391

Windhoek Lager NFA Cup: LIVERPOOL CONFIDENT AGAINST BIRDS As Young Ones promise fireworks... OSCAR MENGO I.'f Prime Press Liverpool sounded very optimistic after ius club was pitted against coastal giants and last year's runners-up Interatlantic Blue Waters at Wednesday night's Windhoek Lager NFA Cup semifinals draw. His Pupkewitz Toyota Young Ones counterpart Andre Alcock, who face Namsea Orlando Pirates, was similarly pleased. Said Mengo: "I am totally satisfied with the draw. Not that I consider Blue Waters easy opponents, but I know that my boys are definitely going to feature in their first cup final come November 28."
