WINDHOEK: The continuation of the trial of former Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) Managing Director Tobie Aupindi and his co-accused, Antonio Di Savino resumes in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
The proceedings of the trial were on 19 March this year remanded until 14 September as Di Savino had to accompany his elderly mother to Italy as she could not travel alone due to her age.
Windhoek Magistrate Helvi Kauna Shilemba in March granted the postponement of the trial to September as per agreement reached by the two accused persons’ defence lawyers Richard Metcalfe and Louis Du Pisani, and Public Prosecutor Erick Naikaku.
On 24 February this year, the two accused men suffered a heavy blow when the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court dismissed their application for discharge.
Magistrate Shilemba said at the time that after carefully going through the evidence presented by both defence lawyers, Richard Metcalfe and Louis Du Pisani, and the prosecution team led by Public Prosecutor Arrie Husselmann, he came to the conclusion that the two accused persons have a case to answer before court.
KAMANJAB; Residents of Kamanjab in the Kunene Region can look forward to a brand new, modern sports stadium here as construction is set to commence on such a structure soon.
The community is currently forced to make use of two fields for sports activities – one situated near the community hall here which is only identifiable by two iron poles; while the other is little more than a gravel field next to the Kamanjab Combined School.
Acting Kamanjab Village Council clerk Games Namaseb told Nampa in an interview on Tuesday that construction will commence on a N.dollars 900 000 stadium in October this year.
He said it will have grass, a pavilion to accommodate 500 people and a track for athletic purposes, adding that seating for 500 people is adequate taking into consideration the village’s population.
The stadium will be constructed next to the Kamanjab Combined School, about 300 metres east of the Kamanjab Village Council offices.
Funding for the stadium was sourced from the German Special Initiative Programme.
