News from the coast

22 October 2018 | Local News

This Sunday, Erongo reports the ministry of industrialization, trade and SME development's application to purchase the remainder of Farm 58 located behind Dune 7.

Since the Namibia Development Corporation intends to establish the Pioneer Industrial Estate, the ministry indicated last month that they require the remainder of Farm 58 (+/- 2000ha) to realize its mandate to industrialize Namibia.

The municipality is also looking at including the area east of Dune 7 in the expansion of the Walvis Bay town and townlands boundary.

Erongo also reports on the appointment of Richard Storrie as the new managing director of Rössing Uranium Limited as from 29 October 2018. Storrie joins Rössing from Rio Tinto Serbia where he successfully led the Jadar project over the last five years.

On the sporting front, Erongo reports on the National Artistic Gymnastics that took place at The Dome in Swakopmund on Friday and Saturday. The competition saw gymnasts from all over the country battling it out for the top spot. In other news, the Namib Daughters soccer team also took on NUST Babes in Swakopmund in the national women's soccer league on Saturday.
