News from the coast

24 August 2017 | Opinion

This week readers can look forward to an inspiring article in the Erongo about the South African Born Australian woman, Claire McFarlane, who will be running more than 3 000 kilometres across the beaches of 184 countries. Her “Footsteps to Inspire” campaign is aimed at removing the taboo around rape and to support the healing process.

The rise in violent crimes in Swakopmund does not seem to have drifted to neighbouring towns, since police in Walvis Bay have noted a decrease in crime in Kuisebmond. Incidents of housebreaking and assault however, still dominate the crime scene in the suburb.

Erongo also reports on a new initiative for car guards by the Walvis Bay municipality, traffic and police departments. Through the initiative, 11 registered car guards have been identified and were handed bibs in an effort to regulate the occupation.

Erongo also reports on the excellent performance of Pro-Ed Academy’s U-19 rugby team at the Momentum Schools Rugby League. The team came out on top for the third year in a row with a score of 29-27 against Keetmanshoop Private School.

What to look forward to at the coast this weekend:
