_: KEETMANSHOOP: The problems of stock theft and drug dealing among the /Hai-/Khaua clan will soon be dealt with locally once the /Hai-/Khaua traditional court is established.
Johannes Isaak, Chief of the /Hai-/Khaua Traditional Authority, a sub tribe of the Namas, told Nampa on enquiry today that plans are underway to establish a traditional court that will conduct hearings and punish offenders in that area.
Isaak said arrangements for a community workshop on traditional court procedures and its composition, among others, were already made by his office last week.
He was not exactly sure when the workshop will take place, but suspects that it might be mid-next week.
He said the local people have been asking what the traditional authority is doing to punish the criminals, hence the authority decided to start working on implementing the traditional court.
Students need self-evaluation on what they want to do in future and set achievable goals.
Newly appointed Coordinator of the International University of Management (IUM) at Ongwediva, Simaata Francis Mwiya, said this during that university’s Staff and Students’ Information-Sharing Platform held at Ongwediva’s Sam Nujoma Multi-Purpose Centre on Thursday.
Mwiya urged the students to work on their dreams, and not to wait for tomorrow but to start now.
He also used the platform to encourage the about 350 students and lecturers who attended the meeting, to keep on promoting the image of the university through their way of conduct, commitment and professionalism.
Mwiya told the gathering that during his first three weeks at the IUM he enjoyed seeing the students engaging themselves in research work, despite the fact that facilities and resources are limited at the university.
