WINDHOEK: Local entertainer, Quinton ‘Quera’ Gowaseb, was struck and killed by a car on the main road between the Safari Hotel and the Doc Jubber hockey field here yesterday evening.
The incident took place at about 21h40.
The 27-year-old Gowaseb was a back-up dancer for local hip-hop and Kwaito artist ‘Sunny Boy’.
The group was one of the opening acts for American hip-hop star “Eve” who performed at the Doc Jubber hockey field.
Namibian Police Force (NamPol) Khomas Regional Crime Investigations’ Coordinator, Deputy Commissioner Silvanus Nghishindimbwa confirmed the incident, adding that police are searching for the driver who fled the scene.
Minister of Environment and Tourism, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah said there is an urgent need for customer service to improve, if Namibia wants to become one of the top tourism destinations in the world.
She made the call here on Friday during a one-day customer care workshop organised by the Namibia Tourism Board (NTB) in collaboration with the Commonwealth Secretariat and facilitated by the Centre for Tourism Policy Studies of the University of Brighton in the United Kingdom.
She said Namibia is hosting the Adventure Travel Summit next year and we need a good understanding of international customers’ needs and their expectations.
Nandi-Ndaitwah raised the concern that communication skills of the front-line workforce in most sectors are considered to be relatively poor.
