The Press Briefing on NAC Matters

Source: Namibia Airports Company (NAC)

STATEMENT BY THE CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS DR. LEAKE HANGALA DURING THE PRESS BRIEFING ON NAC MATTERS HELD ON WEDNESDAY 07 NOVEMBER 2018 , 10H00, AT EROS AIRPORT ,WINDHOEK
 
Fellow Board Members,
NAC Executive Management,
NAC staff,
Distinguished stakeholders,
Members of the media,
 
Namibia’s key entry point for international tourism and business, our flagship airport, Hosea Kutako International Airport, is in an unacceptable state.
 
The airport has reached its limit concerning capacity and therefore requires urgent expansion and upgrading to meet the demands of increasing aircraft and passenger numbers, as well as more stringent international security and safety requirements.
 
Different and sometimes non-aligned role players that an arriving guest meets, in addition to long queues exacerbate the challenges on the ground.
 
Ladies and Gentlemen,
 
The Namibia Airport Company (NAC) whose explicit mandate in terms of its act is to operate the country’s public airports has been experiencing instabilities mainly due to the absence of a substantive CEO, continuous suspension of some of its senior executives as well as resignations in its board ranks.
 
The Government has a result of these challenges facing, among others HKIA, has taken decisive actions to address the situation by appointing a Special Cabinet Committee led by the Honourable Deputy Prime Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah as well the Technical Committee to the Special Cabinet Committee comprising of Permanent Secretaries of which NAC is also party to. Government also re-enforced the Board of Directors at NAC and relaxed procurement procedures for the company to urgently address the situation at our main airport. [Read More]

'Geblikteleeu-bedryf moet gesluit word'

Republikein, 9 November 2018


Die geblikteleeu-bedryf is oneties, stel Suid-Afrika in ’n swak lig en rolspelers meen dit moet beëindig word.

Dit is van die bevindings in die verslag van die portefeuljekomitee oor omgewingsake wat gister in die parlement ter tafel gelê is.

“Dit is nou in die hande van die parlement wat moet besluit oor die toekoms van dié omstrede bedryf,” lui die gevolgtrekking in die lywige verslag. [Read more]

Mass drowning of Buffalo in Chobe River


 
7 November 2018
 
PRESS RELEASE- MASS DROWNING OF BUFFALOES IN CHOBE RIVER
 
The Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism wishes to inform the public of a mass drowning of Buffaloes in the Chobe River along the border of the Chobe National Park, on the edge of the Kabulabula Peninsula.

Initial investigations by authorities on both sides of the Botswana / Namibia Border suggest that an exceptionally large buffalo herd was grazing in Namibia when they stampeded into the Chobe river. The cause of the stampede is still uncertain and under investigation, 
however initial indications are that they were being chased by a pride of lions. It is estimated that more than 400 animals drowned due to the massive movement of buffalo trampling, and falling from steep river banks. Carcasses have largely been removed, most being harvested
by community members who live along the river in Namibia. This is not an unusual occurrence as mass drownings have occurred before in the Chobe River notably off Sedudu Island.

Thank you.
