visit from New York. The President told Nyi Nyi

that "there are still street kids and orphans" in Namibia and that the Government ~as committed to .improving their lot. This, he added, included setting up institutions for the care of children.

Nujoma pointed out that although Naniibia was expect­ing a bumper maize harvest which should be enough to provide food for children, the problem of proper preparation of the food remained. He said he wanted proper staff trained for this.

In this regard the Govern­ment had also started educat­ing I1l~tQers so that they could bring up theu children health­ily . .

Further, the Pre!.1dent said, there was no reason why chil­dren should go hungry when Namibia had so much in the way of fish resources to help prevent malnutrition. Remain-ing problems of malnutrition were a legacy of Nanubia' s colonial past and the "colo­nial pattern of distribution", he noted.

Nujoma acknowledged the assistap.ce given by Unicef on a number of occasions and

Details on census countdown DEVELOPMENT in Namibia is being held up because there is too little information about the country's people, how many there are, how old they are, where and how they live. The first national census since 1981 will be taken at midnight between September 5 and 6 and aims to provide the data for future planning.

The education and publicity . campaign on the census is to be launched officially on Thurs­day July 11, known as World Population Day. Education is needed. as many people are suspicious of giving their de­tails, publicity liaison officer Vitura Kavari said yesterday.

Trial runs were staged at Mariental and Rehoboth in March and in22 districts in the countryside and towns between May 20 and 31.

Kavari said that interview­ers found people refused to answer questions without the instructions of their political parties and other leaders. On June 21 the National Assem­bly passed a resolution to nUuce clear the census has all-party suppoft.

The survey will be central to proper development planning and government services, as well as helping aid bodies and businesses in preparing future projects as it will give infor­mation on potential workers, needs and markets. It will also help bodies which hope to give aid at governmental level.

The last census in 1981 is inaccurate as it was taken under South African control during the war, and at least 60 000 Namibians have come back before and-after independence.

The Cabinet has set up three

committees: a central census committee chaired by Lutheran bishop Fredericks with Dr Zed Ngavirue as vice-chair; a cen­sus technical and advisory committee; and a census pub­,licity and education commit­tee which brings together busi­nesses' Joe Putz of the Na­mibia Broadcasting Corpora­tion and the government.

. The ministries working on the census are: Labour and Manpower; Information and Broadcasting; Education and Culture; Local Government and Housing; and Health and So­cial Services with help from the United Nations Develop­ment Programme and the UN Fund for Population Activi-ties.

The census takers are still busy drawing up maps of the different areas, including Ovambo which has not been properly mapped in this way and Kavango, Caprivi and Kaokoland.

Training programmes have also started and a total of2 400 interviewers will be needed to cover the whole country.

A week before the census they will attach numbers to every house and people are asked not to remove these. Preparation work also includes counting institutions such as student hostels and army bar-

racks, and finding the places where homeless "night sleep­ers" stay.

Counting will start on Sep­tember 6. In the early hours of the morning the interviewers will go out and talk to the homeless in order to count them. For the rest of the week they travel around interviewing people and update information on hostels, prisons and bar­racks.

They need details of all people who were in a particular build­ing at midnight, including babies, foreigners, lovers and so on - the information will be

confidential. Information needed includes age, relation­ship to the head of the house­hold, educational level. type of job and disability. and 'for women details of how many children they have had includ­ing those who died. The cen­sus is also a survey of housing and will cover materials of waIls and roof, where ~ water comes from and other details.

The census should be over by September 15 but may have to continue. After that all the information will be compiled by computers and released only as statistics.

World Population Day THE five billionth 'person was born on July 11, 1987,. ac­cording to experts' guesswork. The world's population is growing ever-faster and increasingly urgent steps need to be taken to control it. For. instance, although Namibia's planned growth of two per cent after inflation for this year sound hopeful, the population wlli probably grow by three per cent, making the average Namibian poorer. At the cur­rent growth rate our population could double in under 24 years and again 14 years after that.

In each family, ifwomen are able to plan and space their children·properly they can improve both their own health and their babies' chances of survival, getting enough to eat and getting good schooling.

A special programme on July 11 will take place at the Continental Hotel in Windhoek and starts with registra­tion at 08h30. Speakers include Dr Zedekia Ngavirue (director-general of the National Planning Commission), David McAdams (UN Development Programme), Dr A Wolle (regional adviser of UN Fund for Population Activi­ties) and Shahida Azfar (representative of the UN chil­dren's fund, Unicef). There wUl also be workshops and a video.

Commonwealth team to push democracy in SA

SENIOR legislators from seven Com­monwealth countries, including Namibia, left for South Africa yesterday to meet with leading politicians and discuss ways of speeding tbe country's progress to­wards democracy. "

Deputy Hpme. Affairs Minister Nangolo Ithete is represel}ting Namibia in the team which also includes legislators from Australia, Botswana, Mauritius, India, Canaaa and Jamaica.

National · Assembiy Speaker Moses Tjiten~ dero was meant t<? a~company the delegation but was unable to do so because of an overlap­ping visit to the United Kingdom.

Tjitendei·o said yesterday that the main aim of the delegation was to find ways of scaling down violence in South Africa and to advise on the in­troduction of full parliamentary democracy.

He said the team was due to meet with State

President FW De Klerk yesterday and with a number of other government figures before coming to WindhoekonFriday for a·debriefing.

"After that theywill retwn to South Africa to contimJe talks with leaders such as Nelson Mandela and Chief Bl.)thele~/ '. S:aid TjiteDS!ero . ..

While in Windhoek the legislators would also meet .with members of the Nati!>naiAs,sembly. repre.sentativ.es. ' of the ' ruling . arid opposition p~ies alike. he .. said,

"The Commonwealth delegation has a great deal of standing, respe?! and ·leverage and its overtures were accepted by President De Klerk.· ' said Tjitendero. adding that he was hopeful that the mission would have a good measure of suc­cess.

THE latest in a series of agreements between build­ing workers and companies in the construction business has been signed with PG Timbers, Windhoek.

The Namibia Building Workers' Union says it won a pay rise of Is percent from July I, free protective clothing including overalls and boots. and safety equipment such as goggles and dust-protectors, as well as minimum working conditions.

PG Timbers recognises Nabwu, a member of a federa­tion called the Namibia Chris­tian Social Trade Unions, as the sole representative of its workers, according to the un­ion 's president Aloysius Yon.

The talks also covered disci­plinary procedures, productiv-

A WINDHOEK tabby cat, which has already had more than its fair share of nine lives, sur­

prised its owners this weekend by walking coolly back into the house after an absence of six months.

'Put-Put', an eight-year-old tabby Point Sia­

mese, went missing last year while it'i owners were away for the Christmas holidays. The fam­ily, who had left the cat in the care of a friend , spent many weeks looking for the animal, but to no avail.

Then on Sunday night a familiar 'miaow' in the kitchen announced the reappearance of the fam­ily pet "It was as though she'd never been away," said Sandy Rudd, owner of the feline prodigal. "She wandered around, went back to all her fa-

vourite spots and settled down as though she owned the place."

A cat-of-many-adventures, 'Put-Put' was adopted by the Rudd family eight years ago when a young boy brought her to the door. "She had been involved in an accident and had a badly injured leg. The vet put a pin in her leg and she

still walks oddly." The family's two children were overjoyed at

the pet's return, particularly as she was in per­fect health. "It would be nice to know whose been looking after her all this time," said Sandy. "Now when she goes out Heel a bit like a jealous wife wondering who the ' other family' is!"

Explosion injures kids TWO young boys were seriously injured by explosives in the Onhuno area near Ohangwena on Saturday.

Sam Nicolaas. 9. and Erastus Mwandjena, 2, were sitting near a fire when the explosives :went off. It is believed that the explosives had been there for a long time and were exploded by the fire.

It is not the first explosion incident reported in the area this year. Only last month a young boy was killed after apparently playing with an explosive he found at Ongha, only lOkm from Onhuno.

Sex with a 16-year-old HERMANUS Albertus Bock (35), yesterday appeared in the Windhoek Magistrates Court on a charge of having sexual intercourse with a girl who is undel\ the age of 16.

It was alleged that on or between September an~ 30 November last year. the accused unlawfully and intentionally repeatedly had sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 16 years.

At a previous appearance Bock pleaded not guilty and said the girl did not attend school and that she did not look younger than 16. Bock stateQ that he never suspected or knew that she might be under the age of consent.

The case was postponed to July 11 for trial.

ity and the general state of the economy.

Earlier Nabwu and the Metal and Allied Workers' Union of Namibia. affiliated to the Na­tional Union of Namibian Workers' Federation, had negotiated an industry-wide agreement with all the con- ' struction companies under the Master Builders' Association of Namibia.

This covered a general 10 per cent pay increase imd other minimum conditions includ­ing protective and safety equip­ment issued once a year.

According. to Yon it is hard to mobilise construction work­ers as they frequently have to move from one company or town to another,: and .few get fixed jobs. However, the two unions are making progress at getting employers not to take

short cuts on the pay rises and to meet minimum safety con­ditions.

He also had a word of cau­tion for Finance Minister Otto Herrigel after attending a meeting in Togo in West Af­rica on Africa 's debt crisis. This was Ol;ganised by an Afri­can Organisation of the Cul­tural, Economic and Educa­tional Development ofP~ople in Africa, which is part of a World 'Confederation of Labour.

- ~ He was horrified at what he learnt of the effects of World Bank and International Mone­tary Fund structural ad~nts programmes and asked Heirigel to make sure that Namibia never got into that state.

"We've got to be careful . not to overspend and we should

learn from the mistakes of other African countries", he urged.

'INTRUDER' bushes on farms east of Windhoek are busy taking over large tracks of grassland and farmers have to "kill" them in order to have more grass and open space for their livestock.

Getting rid of poison and useless bushes and trees was one of the topics tackled at the five day proficiency course for farm labourers that ended last Friday on the farm Ondun­duwazirapi owned by Hans Marggraff.

Marggraff showed The N amibian a section of his farm which he said had been only grassland back in 1959. Now it is tliick with "useiess trees and bushes" not eaten by the animals.

The farmer said that the trees take more water out of the soil through transpiration than a water pump per unit of time and also stops cattle fromhav­ing free passage when grazing.

Marggraff pointed out that when he bums the trees to kill them even better grass springs

Up for murder NORMAN Lesley Engel­brecht, 30, appeared in the Windhoek Magistrates Court on a charge. of murder yesterday. , The State alleged that Englebrecht intentionally killed Martin Albertus Feris on July 6 by stabbing him in the chest with a sharp instru­ment. The accused was ar­rested on July 8.

to life on those spots. _ He added that he is against

using poison as its effects can surface after many years and contaminate the soil and wa­ter.

However, he said with a deep sigh, maybe some problem trees could only be killed by poison.

Deputy minister of Agricul­ture Kaii-e Mbuende, who also had a look at the fields 'cap­tured' by the intruding bushes, said at a passing out ceremony for labourers at the farm that "fanning should not be in competition withnature". For this reason the course they had ' just undergone was important.

DISCUSSING the problem of 'problem trees'. are, from left, Jochen Neubrech, senior vice-president of NAU; Hans M.arggraff, owner of the farm; and deputy minis­ter of Agriculture Kaire Mbuende, accompanied by one of his stat1' members.

The case was postponed to July 26 for trial. Engelbre­cht was released on bail of R500.

Africa's drive, for democracy LOME, Togo: Mrica is the poorest continent in the world, but the unrest that has shaken its continent's dictators has scored most of its successes in richer countries like this one.

Under Pre·sident Gnassingbe ,Eyadema's 24-year-rule, Togo has achieved an economic growth rate that is the envy of many countries on the conti­nent. .

Ule US Embassy's economic report says it has "one of the most favorable investment climates in Africa" and . pre­dicts for Togo "continued moderate growth" on a conti­nent where most countries ' economies are declining.

But Top olese apparently want more. Eyadema has been fon:ed to accept an interim govern~ ment that will be chosen at a national conference that started here yesterday.

Last month a similar confer­ence in Brazzaville stripped Congolese 'President Denis Sassou-Nguesso of everything but the title of president. Congo also is among sub-Saharan's Africa's most developed na­tions.

A national conference in Togo's eastern neighbour, Benin, last year took control of

the govemment from President Mathieu Kerekou and gave it to an interim government headed by Nicephore Soglo. Soglo defeated Kerekou in presidential elections in Man:h, the first time an African presi­dent had been deposed by bal-·lot. '

Dictators have been toppled or fon:ed to make cortcessions ranging from power sharing · with the opposition to 'at least permitting opposition parties to exist, in nearly half of the countries south of the Sahara.

In some countries, includ­in~ Ethiopia , Angola, Mozam­bique and Somalia, guerrilla wars forced the concessions.

But strikes and demonstra­tions forced presidents Omar Bongo of Gabon, an oil-rich country with the highest per capita income in black Africa, and Felix Houphouet-Boigny of Ivory Coast, often caijed Africa's "economic success story," to permit multiparty rule.

VICTORIA FALLS, Zimbabwe: The Zimbabweangov­ernment has set up a high-level task force to rationalize its operations, reports the country ' s Ziana national news agency.

1b.is comes as part of Zim-. babwe' s economic reform pro­

gramme, according to Senior Finance, Economic Planning and Development Minister, Bernard Chidzero.

Addressing the Confedera­tion of Zimbabwe Industries (CZI) congress at Victoria Falls on Friday, Chidzero said the task force comprised Cabinet Ministers and was chaired by Vice-President S imon Muzenda.

It would streamline dupli­cate operations within the 26 ministries, as well as examine the ac tivities and functions of parastatals.

A second unit of senior offi­cials would monitor the effi­ciency of civil servants and report back to the Cabinet task fo rce.

The CZI has proposed that a

quarter of the country ' s 100 000 civil servants be retrenched.

Government has apptoved a Zd 20 million social fund · to assist those to be retrenched, while others would be retired, said Chidzero.

An incentive package was also being finalised to ensure a " slim but efficient civil serv­ice" . Subsidies to parastatals would be phased out, which would continue to operate on commercial principles in their own budgets, he said.

"Where they (parastatals) serve no purpose, we will scrap them ," he said.

More revenue could also be expected from customs du~ as more than 50 per cent of all good would be phiced on the country 's Open General Im­port Licence (Ogil) by the first quarter of 1992. - Sapa.

relativel y rich by African stan­dards, have also been hit by waves of unrest.

Though students led the charge in many countries, the real pressure came when gov­ernment I:n1ployees - who make up the vast majority of the middle class in most countries - joined the struggle.

Clearly, .the revolts of East­ern European countries stirred many. The ending of the Cold War also made it no longer necessary for Western govern­ments to support dictators for strategic reasons.

Western donors publicly made a commitment to democ­racy a condition of aid after the unrest had already begun.

A senior Togolese official said the economic cuts required by the "'orld Bank and Inter­national Monetary Fund in the past decade fon:ed governments to layoff employees, freeze salaries .and raise prices for gasoline and food.

The World Bank and IMF have acknowledged the aus­reri~pro~s ~yreqrired have resulted in lower stan­dards of living in many coUn­tries.

These measures made gov-

emments unpopular with the middle class. And when the measures failed to revive econo­mies, strikes began. Some governments were virtually sIrut down. Soon the strikes became protests against one-p~ rule.

The Togo official, who de­clined to b~ further identified, said, " The Western countries now are telling u s we must accept multiparty rule. They are accelerating the process ' beyond its natural course, and this has caused things to ex­plode. "

Eyadema, speakiftg to jour­nalists recently, said he had offered his people the choice between parties in 1969, when Togo' s economy was boom­ing,and they turned him down.

Togo's economy has declined sharply due to a drop in prices for its chief export, phosphates, and rising prices for imports, especially petroleum.

It also remains to be seen whether the democracy won so recently will survive if their economies do not pick up. Some argue that democracy will lead to the break up of countries who were artificially created by former colonial powers. -Sapa-AP. -

No poor child will suffer - Chidzero

BULA W A YO : Zimbabwean Senior Minister for Finance, Economic Planning and Development, Bernard Chidzero, has assured the nation that no child of school-going age would be denied education simply because the parents are too poor to pay education fees, Zimbabwe' s Ziana national news agency reported yesterday.

The government, he said, would come up with a fair and equitable system. Chidzero was reacting to questions from dele­gates attending the Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries (CZI) congress in Victoria Falls at the weekend.

In a major shift towards offsetting ·the national budget deficit and also in line with measures enshrined in the new economic reforms, the Zimbabwe Government has indicated that school fees would be re-introduced after 10 years of free primary education.

During the same period, the government. also heavily sub­sidised secondary and higher education . .

Chidzero told the CZI congress that the government was subsidising every child whose parents were unable to pay school fees. - Sapa.

No disarming of guerrillas METULLA, Israel: Palestinian guerrillas in Lebanon have surrendered less than 10 per cent of their heavy and medium weapons to the Lebanese army, the com­mander of aD Israeli-backed Lebanese militia said yes- . terday. General Antoine Lahad said the Lebanese army was held back by politics from disarming the guerrillas completely.

A polly good show! GILBRA T AR: Six parakeets pressed into service aboard a Br itish destroyer during the Gulf War received cita­tions yesterday for bravery and devotion to duty.

British Forces spokesman Captain Leo Callow said the six birds were received wth honours at Shell Jetty by chil­dren from St Georges School who had loaned them to the navy.

" This really made their day," school director Travor Shaw said of the 20 children who gathered to welcome

back Dinah, Joey, lain, Chrissy, Rosie and Magic and receive their respective bronze medals.

The birds, belonging to the Melopsittacus undulatus group, were recruited to serve on board the HMS Manch­ester as part of the ship 's chemical detection system when

' it headed toward the Gulf last January. Birds like para­keets and canaries have been used traclitionally in coal mines because of their extreme sensitivi ty to gas.

Civic leader slain CAPE TOWN: KhayeJitsha civic ltader Michael Mapongwana was shot and killed yesterday, said Cape Town attorney Essa M60sa.

Moosa said the slain man' s brother had confirmed the death. Anq,ther man also died when shots were fired at the vehicle in

which M apongwana was a passenger, according to police. M apongwana 's wife, Nomsa, was killed in an attack on their

Khayelitsha home last year and he survived four previous at­tempts on his life. The appa~nt assassination has been linked to a bloody feud between rival Cape Flats taxi associations.

Biggest cocaine bust in SA JOHANNESBURG: East Rand narcotics police on Friday seized a suitcase containing 19k9 of cocaine at Jan Smuts Airport in Johannesburg.

Police yesterday said they estimated the street value of tlle cocaine at RiO million. It was the biggest cocaine "bust" in South Amca's history. No arrests had been made, but investiga­tions were continuing, police said. They were not sure whether the suitcase had been brought into South Africa or whether it was de~tined to go out of the country.

Three die in Kwamashu unrest DURBAN: Skirmishes broke out on Sunday between African National Congress supporters and dwellers at Kwamashu.hostels and Richmond farm, leaving at least three people dead, Demo­cratic Party Unrest Monitoring Group said yesterday.

A spokesman for.the SAP, however, said he could not comment as the area fell under the jurisdiction of the K wazulu Police, who could not be contacted. .

DPunrest monitor Roy Ainslie said several hundred vigilantes from local hostels gathered at Tembelihle railway station in Kwamashu early Sunday morning and prevented people, who wished to attend the ANC rally at Kings Parlc Stadium, from boarding traw .

Slovenian accord on borders BRIONI, Yugoslavia: The country ' s leaders yesterday reached an agreement that seeks to end the fighting in Slovenia by giving the republic limited control of its international b orders. But the situation remained tense in neighboring Croatia a day after the federal army in that breakaway republic moved in to quell ethnic violence.

Meanwhile, the federal army's general staff announced that the last remaining army prisoners captured by Slovenian defense forces: about 91 men, had been released overnight. Slovenia and Croatia declared independence on June 25. The federal army intervened only in Slovenia after the republic seized control of its external borders. In Croatia. there have been almost daily clashes between republican authorities and the ethnic Seroian minority.

Asia's human rights record LONOON: Inits annual survey of human rights around the world, Amnes~ International yesterday reported "disturbing human rights violations" inAsia, including tOIture, arbitrary arrests and increased executions.

The London-based human rights group catalogued "disap­pearances" and extra judicial executions in Sri Lanka, increased executions in China, torture or ill-treatment in many countries and arrests without cause throughout much of Asia.

It said torture, ill-treatment or poor detention conditions were reported in China, India, Pakistan, Burma, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand. In the Philippines, over 50 people' 'disappeared" after being detained by government-backed forces, it said.

Massive protest march ANTANANARIVO: Government opponents launched'a general strike yesterday, and more than 200 000 people man:hed through the capital demanding the ~esignation of President Didier Rat­siraka.

Some local journalists estimated the crowd atup to 400 000 and said it was the largest turn-out yet during nearly a month of almost daily anti-government protests in Antananarivo.

The coalition of opposition parties organizing the protests has demanded the replacement of Madagascar's sociiilist constitution, democratic elections, and an end to Ratsiraka's 16-year rule.

No funds for new houses HAR.ARE: Zimbabwe Public Construction and National Housing Minister Enos Chikowore yesterday blamed the lack'of funds for the delay in implementing new projects under the rural housing programme.

Chikowore told Ziana national news agency that for the past two years, his Ministry had not been allocated funds for new projects in planned villages and resettlement areas. " My minis­try h as only been allocated funds to complete ongoing projects," he said.

To date , said Chikowore, 32 projects were under implementa­tion in resettlement areas, and 19 others in planned villages.

ANC urged liquidate I . t\~~.i.~~~~~~~ ---·its foreign assets JOHANNESBURG: The ANC will hopefully liquidate its foreign assets and deploy the funds - potentially R655-million -for job-creating investments in South Africa, the Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry said yesterday.

The call follows the ANC's announcement at its rutiional conference in Durban last week that it has assets amounting to R655-million abroad, compris­ing several houses and flats in European countries, vehicles, farms and two huge estates in Tanzania.

ICCI president Mike Cato in a statement also said his organisation "guardeQly wel­corned" the appointment of top trade unionist Cyril Rama­phosa to the post of ANC sec­retary general. Cato said he"

hoped Ramaphosa would bring to the ANC executive a better understanding of how business

• operated and the need for job creation and economic growth.

The chamber, however, re· gretted that the ANC had de­cided to remain a liberation movement, that it would main­tain its close links with the SA COnlmunist Party, that it had resolved to continue building Umkhonto we Sizwe and step up mass protest action.

"These steps will do noth­ing to improve the business

. mood, stimulate investor con­fidence, and encourage pro­ductivity and stability in the business world," said Cato.

Commenting on the ANC stance on negotiations adopted at the national conference, Cato said the ICCI ~as encouraged that an elected executive now exists with a.mandat~Jo enter multi-party negotiat!ins to­wards a new constitution.

"Political stability is a pre­requisite for strong economic performance and the sooner it is achieved, the better. " - Sapa.

THE NAMIBIAN Tuesday July 9 1991 9 •


,rhe ANC comes of age DURBAN: The ANC has fi­nally arrived - united behind negotiations and a moderate leader and positioning itself to take over the reigns of govern­ment in a new non-racial South ~frica .

That was the clear message that thundered out of the Uni­versity of Durban-Westville sports centre where the ANC' s 48th national conference put the unruly and rebelious mili­tancy of December 's consulta­tive conference behind it.

The singing and the clenched fists were stilrthere but they were solemn and serious, in salute to the long struggle past and ahead.

The ~onference .gave clear notice of,its intent to build and re-orientate itself towards the broader political constituency in South Africa and to start readying itself to win confi­dence and votes outside the confines of its present mostly black support.

It took the lead erstwhile Deputy President Nelson Mandela gave in his opening address on Tuesday and ac­cepted negotiations as unques­tionable part of the struggle.

In doing so, and in electing its leaders with such clearly reflected unity, the ANC has answered President FW de Klerk 's call from Parliament for clear leaders with a finn mandate.

The ANC is now geared to start the negotiating process in all seriousness. It is also ready to take on the National Party in a political battle for the major­ity 's support in open and free elections.

.. campaign to bxjng the policies of the ANC to these communi­ties and said there must be sensitivity to the fears expressed by minority groups.

"A serious weakness is that the majority of the African community have not taken into account the, needs of minority groups. " Ethnic groups and

• ethnicity were a reality and a dangerous threat to the ANC.

The ANC conference stopped short however from severing ties with the SACP, which its outgoing Secretary General, Alfred Nzo, reported spedfi­call y as an identified and seri ~ ous obstacle to recruitment in those communities.

It showed a distinct reluc­tance -to drop the SACP "muscle'! from its leadership, returning SACP members to over.,half of the 50 elected National Executive Commit­tee posts, six out of the top ten.

It also refused to break with the losing call for continued sanctions although Mandela articulated the danger of end­ing up with "only the empty shell in our hands. " The prin­ciple of a phazed approach was adopted.

'fhe conference clearly fol­lowed Mandela's lead in ex­pressing the wgen;y with which negotiations had to be viewed.

Although resolutions in this regard contained lengthy and wordy qualifications and pre­conditions, it seems clear that the argument has now been won.

The ANC had to press for­ward to the goal of a demo­cratically elected Constituent Assembly, he said.

"The power of the organi­sed masses will outweigh any attempt to stop us, " he said.

Even the emphasised calls for increased mass action, the

his ageing mentor of the early days in the struggle, deputy

,president Walter Sisulu, the . negotiation process now'seems assured of rapid movement.

A charnpi.on for negotiations, Sisulu, gave the arch-enemy of talks, Nat8l Midlands Chair­man, Harry Gwala, a humiliat­ing defeat for the No 2 posi- • tion. ,.

This defeat started off the week' s clear and growing

. message that :I. change had rome


about over the past six months. The leap in membership from 100 000 to 700 000 held cer­tain implications clearly re­flected in the more mature profile of delegates and the careful decisions taken.

The conference started to project an image which, far more than in December, has put out the welcome mat to whites. It appears to have endorsed the reasuring demo-

cratic xbetoric of Mandela more visibly and has equiped him and his NEC with most of the mandate required to prepare the political pathways which it hopes will converge on a truly non-racial ANC centre.

Though such results now seem far-off and even far­fetched to some, those who witnessed the week's near fre­netic and exhaustin~y dedi­cated events could often not


resist the temptation to com-ment openly on the vast prog­ress the movement had made organisationally and in prag­matic political grasp of its new legal role.

The c.hallenge now faced by the ANC is to translate it all into real' gairts on the ground -in the minds and hearts of its growing membership and to extend it to the rest of South Africa. - Sapa.

TWO OF the ANC's stalwarts, former President Oliver Tambo (left) and Women's League'President Gertrud~ Shope, who were out in force at the ANC's historic congress which ended over the weekend. Tambo stepped down as president, but the warmly-regarded and highly-respected veteran leader was elected as national chairperson. Shope was one of a number of women voted onto the 50-strong National Executive Coinmittee. Tambo and Shope , are pictured above during· a public meeting at Katutura during their recent visit to Namibia. Photograph: Stanley Katzao

A signal in this respect was the conference' s publically stated acceptance of self-criti­cism for not having communi­cated its cause and policies to the coloured, Indian and white minorities. It 'accepted the challenge to step out and ad­dress their admittedly justifi­able fears and work at con­vincing them of the ANC' s policies.

othermaintoolofthestrug~e, ,r-------------------------~----------~----~~~~~--~~~~~------~--~------------~~~ .. E

Many within the ANC had made the mistake of thinking, the unanimously elected Presi­dent Nelson Mandela said in his closing address, "that the mere declaration of the poli­cies of the Freedom Charter will bring masses running to you ".

He called for a. door-to-door

was blunted by Mandela, who warned at the end that the question should be carefully examined "because of the downturn in the economy and the high level of unemploy­ment" .

These correcting pronounce­ments from the ANC presi­dent, who is now clearly in control of the movement, is seen as clear signals that he is determined to shape and inter­pret policy much more force­fully and in a more clearly pragmatic direction. Backed by

1 g Tue.sday July 9 1991 THE 'NAMIBtAN . •

Ion Porojan, Kanselier van Roemenie in Namibie, sal aan die einde van die week die land verlaat en het gister 'n draai by die kantore van die Namibian kom maak om die inwoners van die land te groet. Hy se dit is met 'n swaar hart wat hy 'n land verlaat wat hy leer liefkry het en het Namibiers aangemoedig om op die weg voort te gaan wat hulle ingeslaan het. Indien hierdie weg gevolg word voorspel hy" n blink toekoms vir hier.die land en voeg by dat hierdie land die potensiaal het om een van die mees vooruitstrewendes in die subkontinent te word. Hy weet nog nie wailrheen hy bevorder is nie m~ lar se hy sou verkies het om langer aan te bly indien hy self daaroor kon besluit. Hy hoop die verhoudinge tussen Namibie en sy land sal gesond bly en verder uitbrei.

Party sal hou by beloftes - Nujoma President Sam Nujoma het tydens die opening van 'n vergadering van die Sentrale Komitee van Swapo gese die regering is ter dee bewus van die moeilike ekon­omiese situasie waarin die burgers van die land hulself bevind.

Hy het gese die werk­loosheidsyfer is onrusbarend

.hoog weens die wanpraktyke van die verlede en bygevoeg dat mense van hul woongebiede ontwortel is en dat die eien­dom van sommige selfs

·beskadig is in die proses.

Hierdie situasie is verder vererger deur die groot getalle werklose teruggekeerdes en veral voormalige Plan-soldate.

Hy het ook genoem dat teen­standers van Swapo hulle ver­lustig in die situasie waarin hierdie soldate hulle tans bev-

iJ:ld en beweer dat die Swapo­leierskap nie meer in hulle belangstel nie.

Nujoma se Swapo sal nooit die rol wat hierdie" manne en vroue gespee! het, in die ver­kryging van die ooafhanldikheid wat ons nou geniet, vergeet nie.

Hy is bly om aan te kondig dat die program vir die ontwikkelingsbrigade alreeds 'n aanvang geneem het. Die doel van hierdie projekte is om persone te voorsien van vaar­dighede en kennis en ook om 'n bydrae tot die ekonornie van die land te lewer. Hierdie pro­gram en nog baie andere wat deur die regering organiseer word sal, vo~gens Nujoma, baie bydra tot die vermindering van werkloosheid in die land. .

Onmiddelik na die uitslae van die verkiesing bekend gewordhet is een deel van die party opgeneem in die reger­ing terwy 1 die ander deel in die party gelaat is om voort te gaan met die organisasie en her­strukturering van die party.

Nujoma het aangekondig dat hierdie take suksesvol uitgevoer is en het ' n beroep op die sen­tral~ kornitee gemaak om te kyk na die werk wat voltooi is en 'n opname te maak van die party se suksesse en rnis­lukkings.

Die party is dusver geor-. ganiseer in 13 streke wat opver­deel is in 50 distrikte, 293 spesiale takke en 1890 seksies. Die werk wat sover in die party gedoen is, glo hy, kan die sen­trale kornitee help om te beplan vir die kongres van die party wat teen einde vanjaar sal pla­asvind.

Skietvoorval Op Gobabis

'n LlD van die Namibiese Weermag Hendiik Jason, het gister in d ie magistraatshof op Gobabis verskyn op klagte van moord en poging tot moord.

Die staat voer aan dat J a- ' son in die nag van 6 Julie . vanjaar die 23-j arige Hafeni Shiteya Kapembe, 'n werkne­mer van die Departement van Werke op Gobabis, doodgeskiet het met 'n 9-millimeter pistooI.

Die staat voer verder aan dat hy in dieselfde nag die 2S-jarige Erastus Ha­mukwaya deur die linkerbors en in d ie hand geskiet het. DU word ook aangevoer dat hy twee skote op die vlugtende Hamukwaya gevuur het.

Die polisie se dat twee lede van die weermag twee Inwon­ers van die enkelkwartiere In Epako genooi het om 'n drankie saam met hulle te geniet.

Na bewering bet 'n argu­ment tussen die soldate en die burgerlikes uitgebreek en dU word beskou as aaniei­dend tot die skietvoorvaI.

Vyf skote is dh! nag afgevuur .

J ason is op dieselfde nagin hegtenis geneem en die vuurwapen in sy besl.t is gekon­flskeer deur die polisie.

Dit koit nog nie bepaal word of die vuurwapen 'n dien­spistool was of in onwettige besU was nie.

Die saak is tot 26 Junie uitgestel vir verdere onder­soek en die beskuldigde is nog in aanhouding. Geen borgtog is toegestaan nie.

lBll:I~~~~IPiJi ·~I~!irJI1~OJlgrJ~ HY verwag van die Swapo-partykongres om die party te verander vanaf die Nasionale Bevrydingsbeweging na 'n Massa Politieke Beweging het Sam Nujoma, die Staatspresident en Hoof Uitvoerende Beampte van Swapo oor die naweek gese tydens die tweede vergadering van die Sentrale Komitee in 'n onafbanklike Namibie.

Die Sentrale Kornitee het 6 tot 8 Desember, later vanjaar, voorlopig as datums vir die partykongres uitgewys.

Die kongres, se Nujoma, behoort as die kongres van die heersende party 'n beleid te formuleer wat die rigting van die regcring vir die volgende paar jaar sal bepaal.

Dit is gevolgliknodig om 'n dieptesludie van die heersende politieke, ekonorniese en sosiale werlclild lede in die land te maak.

Hy het beklemtoon dat die konstitu sie van die party en die politieke program hervorm moet word om aan te pas by heersende politieke omstan­dighede .

Al die streke moet ook hul verkose verteenwoordigers vir die kon-gres afvaardig in lyn met die demokratiese b.egin­sels van die party.

Hy het 'n beroe op alle partylede en simpatiseerders gedoen om te help om die party selfversorgend te maak. Party­lede moet harder werk om die party finansieel en ek!,pornies te versterk.

Daar moet wegbeweeg word van die idee dat die party soos in die verlede deur die interna-

sionale gemeenskap onderhou sal word.

Hyhetbygevoeg dat 'n ware Massa Demokratiese Party slegs 'n party kan wees indien dit finansieel en ekonornies selfon­derhoudend kan wees, voortdurend nuwe lede kan werf en ter alle tye in staat is om die heersende omstandighede te beheer.

Swapohetop21 Maart 1990 die verantwoordelikheid aan­vaar van nie net sy onderstetmers nie maat' van al die bewoners van die land, insluitende lede van die opposisie en politieke teenstanders.

Elke burger insluitende die kinders wat nog steeds in die vullisdronune vir kos moet krap is die verantwoordelikheid van die Swapo-regering.

Hy het ' n beroep gedoen op lede van die bevolking watnog nie in die staatsdiens , pri­vaatsektor of in die ontwikke­

' lingsbrigade opgeneem is nie . om geduldig hul kans af te waag ongeag van politieke affiliasie, kleur, ras ofberoep.

Hy het die volkgevra om te verenig, meer spaarsaam te wees, haJ:der te werlc en te hoop vir 'n beter toekoms.

Stalletjies vervang Swakopmund­smokkelhuise

DIE Munisipaliteit van Swakopmund is volgens Nampa besig om stalletjies op te rig vir kleinsakemanne in Mondesa. Hierdie stap volg op die vernietiging van meer as 200 smokkelhuise in die woonbuurt.

Kobus van Zyl, superintendent van die woonbuurt se, die eienaars van die smokkelhuisehet 'n beroep op die Munisipaliteit gedoen om hulle van plekke te voorsien waar hulle wettiglik sake kandoen.

Die Adviesraad en die Bestuurskornitee het bierop besluit om tien stalletj ies met 'n vloeroppervlak van twaalf vierkante meter elk vir die doel op te rig.

Hy het te kenne gegee dat R150 000 vir die doel opsy gesit is en dat diegene wat daarin belangstel smo}1slisensies sal verkry om in die stalletjies handeJ te dryf.

Hy het egter bygevoeg dat die verkoop van alkoholiese drank nie by hierdie stalletjies toegelaat sal word nie.

Na verwagting sal die projek teen die einde van volgende maand voltooi wees. .

'n Deel van die gemeenskap van die 'dorp het vroeer vanjaar demons I reer teen die groot aantal smokkelhuise wat by die enkelkwartiere in bedryf was. Die eienaars van hierdie smok­kelhuis<! het onwettiglik elektrisiteit na hul huise aangele en het deur die nag baie haJ:de musiek gespeel wat die inwoners van die enkellcwartiere en inwoners van die woonbuurt gesteur het.

Dit het gelei tot die atbreek van 264 smokkelhuise by die enkelkwartiere na 'n vergadering wat met die streekskomrnis­saris, Asser Kapere, gehou is.

ATHENS: In what could be a first step towards partici­pation in the Olympics, South Africayesterday received encouraging words for its request to rejoin the Interna­tional Amateur Athletics Federation.

"I am pleased to officially announce here ... that we have succeeded in creating anew, unique federation (in South Africa) in which athletes of all race and colour will be repre­sented, " Primo Nebiolo, lAAF president, said.

" We, the leaders of athlet­ics, firmly believe that the moment has come to once and for all bring an end to the years of isolation which prevented the young people of South Africa from competing," Nebiolo said. ~ new federatioo, the South

African Amateur Athletic Association, submitted a letter officially asking for admission following Nebiolo ' s announce­ment.

The lAAF president also received a letter from leading South African athletes asking that' the decision "regarding the return of the South African team be made as soon as pos­sible and especially for the World Championships in Tokyo".

South Africa was suspended from the lAAF in 1976 as part

of the international campaign against the apartheid system of racial segregation. It has not participated in the Olympic Games since 1960.

The lAAF executive coun­cil is to meet in Tokyo in mid­August shortly before the start of the world championships. If the South African request is approved, athletes from that country will be able to take part in the championships.

•• We are certain this request will be received with enthusi­asm and interest," Nebiolo said.

The IAAF quoted the South African athletes as saying that •• any, delay or postponement of the return of South Africa to international sports competi-

lion would seem incorrect and again caused by a political decision' , .

Nebiolo added that the lAAF had prepared " together with the South Africans, a great programme of development to which our international fed­eration will give financial and technical assistance".

There are 183 national fed­er',,·· Jns represented in the IA."F .

Nebiolo made his statements at a special ceremony at Athens University, where he recieved an honorary doctorate of law degree. He is in the Greek capital to attend the 11th Mediterra­neanGames.


EPenraged by dirty play PORT ELIZABETH: Eastern Province rugby is up in arms following the ugly incident in the Lion Cup semifinal at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Drastic action Will be needed from Eastem Province officials over the deliberate kick by Northern Transvaal lock Drikus Hatting at EP scrumhalf Craig Richardson, if tempers are to be appeased.

Richardson was forced to leave the field beforehalftime, with blood streaming downhis face following the incident.

The most disturbing aspect

is that no action was taken against Hatting for kicking Richardson.

BP supporters who stayed up late on Saturday evening to watch the match on television felt generally that strong ac­tion was needed from EP offi­cials.

The EP team doctor, Louis Visser, confirmed on the team's return to Port Elizabeth on Sunday that Richardson had received 12 stitchestohishead after leaving the field.

"1 had to give Craig an in­jection on Saturday evening and then ordered him to bed as he was still sUffering after-

effects of the injury." He felt much better on Sun­

day, however, and left for East London to attend the Craven Week," Dr Visser said.

Or Archie Rabie, president of the BPRU, who attended the match at Loftus, was not pre­pared to comment on the issue when telephoned on Sunday. However, he said that he would make a statement once he had studied all the facts. It does seem likely, however. that EP will take the matter further.

Coach AIan Zondagh stated bluntly that he was most upset about the incident and he had strong feelings about it.

• 'We have spoken sternly to our players about taking the law into their own hands; and they are under instructions to discipline themselves on the field of play. But it is also

important that our players receive protection when such incidents occur." he said.

In the past, BP players have been crucified when involved in unsavoury incidents at pro­vinciallevel.

Few, if any, of these inci­dents can be compared to the deliberate kick delivered at Richardson by Hatting.

Most disturbing is that nei­ther the referee. Ian Anderson, nor the touch-judge, AIbert Adams, who has recently been rated No 1 referee in South African rugby by the Referees' Society, took any action agaimt Hatting.

BP players and supporters need to feel assured that their officials can be expected to stand up and be counted when such incidents take place. -Sapa.

He said the position surrounding the sports boycott needed to be reviewed within the context of non-racialism and unity.

Ramsamy said the country's sportsmen and women did not know what might happen in the near future. International sports personalities had already visited the country to find out how much development had taken place.


DANISH international Lars Elstrup is due to report back to Luton Town within the next 24 hours for s showdown with manager David Pleat.

A shake-up in the rankings

LONDON: Michael Stich's overpowering victory in the Wimbledon singles final against Boris Beker has taken him to a new world ranking of four on the IBMiATP 'four computer.

However, Becker, the nm­ner-up, has received some compensation with the fact that he has regained the No 1 spot for the first tim,e since Febru­ary 11. Stefan Edberg has dropped to No 2.

Stitch became only the sec­ond German to beat Becker in six years - the other beinS Carl­Uwe Steeb in January 1990 -and went into Wimbledon ranked No 7.

In addition to Stitch's move upwards, this week's IBM/ATP Tour computer rankings show other fluctuations that could point to how the year-end stand­ings will finish.

Ivan Lend!, thwarted yet again at the All England Club, is only just holding onto third place, while Jim Courier and Andre Agassi have both lost one place respectively.

The new top 10 with the points are:

1 Boris Becker 3 658, 2 Stefan Edberg 3 575, 3 Ivan Lendl 2 283, 4 Micbael Stich 2258,5 Jim Courier 2 197, 6 Andre Agassi 2 144, 7 Guy Forget 1 720, 8 Sergi Bruguera 1623, 9 Pete Sampns 1 596, 10 Mi­chael Chang 1440.

South African positions on

the computer following the Championships are: Gary Muller 68, WayneFerreira 81, Christo van Rensburg 112, Marcus Ondruska 172, Pieter Aldrich 214, Grant Stafford 237, Lan Bale 317 and Piet Norval364.

As far as doubles is con­cerned, John Fi1z.gerald has shot to No 1 in the individual list­ings, while he and his partner, Sweden's Andes Jarryd, the new Wimbledon winners, are also at No 1 in the team stand­ings.

The top 10 tandems ar e: 1 FitzgeraldlJarryd 1 557,

2 ConnelIIMlchibata 1 171,3 DavislPate 1 152, 4 CasaV Sanchez 1 140, 5 W oodbr­Idge/Woodfor de 1 029, 6 LeachlPugh 1 028, 7 Gal­bralthlWitsken 1 008, 8 RiglewsklfStich 1 000, 9 Haarhuis/Koevermans 927, 10 FerreiraINorval 811.

In the prize money depart­ment, the five leading play­ers are (in dollars): 1 Mi­chael Stich 857 616,2 Stefan Edberg 850 340,3 Jim Cou­rier 778 421, 4 Borls Becker 709 088, 5 Ivan Lendl 538 118.

Michael Stich -a new star WIMBLEDON: He's the Wimbledon champion, a millionaire and.one of the top four players in the world.

However, Michael Stich, the newest Grand Slam wi&er, may have to pay a price for his new fame and fortune.

"His life isn't going to be the same lIIl-ymore," warned

Boris Becker, the man Stich defeated 6-4, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4'on Sunday in the men's final. " He is the Wimbledon champion. He is a star .pow."

Stich was largely unknown IQUtside his native Gennany two weeks ago . But winning Wimbledon ensures an end to anonymity.

Becker, a three-ti'me winner who knows all about the loss

of innocence that accompanies a Wimbledon title, embraced his Davis Cup teammate at the net aftet' the final point.

" Iknow how it feels . I know how important this day can be in a life," Becker said.

Stich, 22, had won onl y one tournament before Sunday. He had never played in ,a Grand Slam final.

Becker cau tioned that being a champion comes at a high cost.

" He's not going to realize it now, but maybe in a couple of years' time he'll realise the fact how much his life has changed and will change, ' , he said.

SA return to football By the end ofthe"afternoort,'

that all bad changed. His 384 <xx)"dollar winner's pay cheque took him to nearly 1 ) -million dollars i.IJ career ,earnings and boosted him three spots to No 4 iD. the world rankings.

"But it ' s up to him how he can cope with it. Now he ' s a star, but not everything that shines is gold. Some people can handle it, some peop\e can't. It's a fine line ."

Despite the loss, Becker remained No 1 in the world­an honour he claimed two days earlier when Stefan Edberg lost to Stich in ~ semifinals. Becke! and Edberg have been leap­frogging each other for the top men's ranking all year.

hinges on IOC decision Stich said he hopes he is

prepared for his new role. " What is a star? That ' s what

you have to ask. It's tough to ' say for myself," said Stich, who slammed 15 aces past B~kerandrepearedly~ backhand winners on service returns.

JOHANNESBURG: The foundation for South Af­rica's possible return to world football will be laid in Lausanne, Switzerland this week when the Inter­national Olympjc Commit­tee decides whether to readmit the Republic to its movement.

"If the IOC accepts the In­terimNational Olympic Com­mittee of South Africa (lnocsa), then soccer will surely also be welcomed back into the inter­national fold, " Solomon Morewa, general secretary of the new SA Football Associa­tion, said on his return from a weeklong trip to Britain yes­terday.

Safa is an impending affili­ate of Inocsa, which has ap­plied for IOC membership. Its application will be heard at the IOC meeting which starts to­day.

"All that will then remain is for the Confederation of Afri­can Football (Caf) and Fj fa to rubber-stamp our readmis­sion, " Morewa said.

"Therefore, the Lausanne meeting is crucial for South African soccer and we are hoping for a positive outcome. " A three-man delegation from Caf arrives in South Africa next Wednesday and Morewais sure they will leave with a firm go-ahead for Fifa, world foot­ball's governing body, to read­mit the country.

Morewa said there was "unwavering support" for the Republic's return among Eu­rope's soccer-playing nations.

"It was unbelievable how well I was received while overseas last week," he added. "Not long ago, these very same people would have told me to get lost, but now I am every­one's friend. ' ,

Horst Kriete, a qualified German coach who is in South Africa courtesy of Safa to conduct a month-long instruc­tion course for local team coaches , agrees with Morewa.

"The soccer-playing nations of Europe believe that there are no obstacles to South Af­rica' s retu~ " he said. "There are no negative reports in the newspapers; Europe wants your country back.

"My government and the German Football Federation are both keen to renew contact with South Africa. My being here is with their blessing and it's the first step towards renewiIig soccer ties between Germany and South Mica. "

Kriete is one of the GFF's official instructors who ~ extensive clinics worldwide. Next year, on"will be heldJor coaches from. African coun- _ tries and he hoped South Af­rica would be represented.

Morewa said it was "im-' perative" for him to go to Europe. "There is a world of difference between football here and there; we need their knowl-

edge,otherwisethere 'snoway to improve our standards."

A number of positive devel­opments emerged on his trip, he said. The most encouraging was the donation of equipment from England's Minister of Sport Robert Atlcins to help develop the game in South Africa.

"Atkins pledged support for Safa and told me that the world was eager to deal with South Africa," Morewa said. .. He feels that as political reform takes place here, so should change in sport." .

Another plus factor, lle said, was an offer from one of Brit­ain' s largest insurance c.ompa­nies, Smith and Westcott, to sponsor a soccer tour to the Republic.

"Although we have no firm plans for a tour at this stage, this is certainly a heartening development," he said. "But there will be some type of tour this yearifCaf and Fifa give us the green light. "

Morewa ~nied that one of. ' England's top first division , clubs bad been signed up for a tour. .

,The ahcr poSitive aspect was , the acceptance of an invitation to Charles HUgRes, the Eng­lish Football Association's director of coaching and edu­cation, to visit South Africa in

, October, "to help Safa struc­ture its operations on the lines of the FA.

"FA chief Graham Kelly is

also considering giving aid to South Afri.an soccer and could even visit here at a later stage," Morewa concluded. - Sapa.



"I hope I'm not going to be a different person to my friends and to my family. Ijusthope I can be like I am now. For sure there are going to be a couple of things that change, but I don't know what they are. "

Windhoek Lager NFA Cup:


' . ,

And three other Premier League teams draw ... CONRAD ANGULA

FIRST Division outfit Cuca Tops held their own against Eleven Arrows when they beat the Premier League front·runners 2·1 in the return leg of their Windhoek Lager second round outing at the Rundu Stadium on Saturday.

The two sides were level at I-all before changeover.

Arrows, de,spite taking an early lead through their attack­ing central defender Peta U seb who found the net in the 4th minute, succumbed to intense pressure from Cuca Tops and allowed the hosts to equalise in the 20th minute.

Cuca' s winger only known as Manuel added the winner that secured the match for his side in the 80th minute.

And ' according to Arrows chairperson Killa Samaria, the homeside put his side under tremendous pressure on the highball.

"The aerial attacks had my boys on the defence from the outset and Cuca has a fine midfielder in Joshua Kandere.

"The youngster has poten­tial but needs outside expo­sure.

His tactical play is excellent and he is a fine ball distributor which is very rare these days," said Sarnaria who hinted that he would love to have the styl­ish player in his team.

Arrows, despite the loss, went through to the quarter-finals on a 4-3 aggregate.

Another Premier League side Liverpool also went down 1-2 to a First Division outfit Super Stars at the Kuisebmond Sta­dium on Sunday.

Stars were leading with the same score at halftime.

Mashaba Mupupa knocked in the opener for Stars with Kdlili Kaviva 'ldried number

two to give his team a 2-0 lead. All looked settled fo,: a 2-0

win for the hosts before Boeta Mungunda capitalised on a defensive error to score the consolation goal that gave his team a 3-2 aggregate win.

Whilst Arrows and Liver­pool went down to their less fancied opponents, their other Premier League colleagues Toyota Young Ones, Blue Waters and Civics had to settle for draws against First Divi­sion opponents.

Young Ones were lucky to hold Monaco to a goalless draw at the Kuisebmond Stadium on Saturday in a match that be­longed to the home team from the outset, according to on­lookers.

Said Bullet Hansen, Benfica's coach: " Monaco's biggest enemy on Saturday was care­lessness. They could have scored at least four goals in the opening stages of the match but for their poor finishing."

Highland Bucks, Monaco' s hometown neighbours, also managed to hold Civics to a 2-all draw in the next match.

Another visiting First Divi­sion outfit Real Fighters also gave Blue Waters a big fright in a very exciting match in which both sides failed to reg­ister a goal.

However, Blue Waters went through on aggregate after winning 2-1 in the first leg at Keetmanshoop.

The teams that have booked rhemselves a place in the quar-

ter-final round of the coun­try'S' most lucrative cup com­petition are:
