Week in Review - 21 December 2017

Namibia Financial Institutions Supervisory Authority revealed to the public this week that all Medical Funds are now no longer allow to offer gym rebates and other wellness programmes as part of their benefits, with effect from December 14th 2017. According to spokesperson, Victoria Muranda, the practice of medical aids offering gym rebates and wellness programmes is in breach of Section 1 of the Medical Aid Fund Act.
And while most families celebrated with the release of the Grade 10 and Grade 12 examinations results, Education minister Katrina Hanse-Himarwa yesterday said the high number of failure in Grade 10 remains a concern to the ministry. The Grade 12 higher level results for 2017 indicates a lower performance with the graded entries reducing with 1,1% from the 95,5% recorded in 2016. And with most of Namibians on holiday mode already, the police at Walvis Bay are appealing to truck drivers to adhere to the Ministry of Works and Transport’s temporary ban on the use of the B2 road between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, and instead, use the gravel road connecting Swakopmund to Walvis Bay behind Dune 7. The ban is effective from 12 December this year until 19 January 2018, to decongest the B2 road and help prevent accidents over the festive season.
 
In South African News, Cyril Ramaphosa was named the new leader of South Africa's governing ANC party. Ramaphosa, a 65-year-old union leader who became a businessman and is now one of South Africa's richest people, is likely to become the country's next president after elections in 2019, because of his party's electoral dominance. Although the Fitch rating agency says political uncertainty will persist in South Africa despite the election of Ramaphosa as ANC leader. 
Meanwhile, North West University economist Raymond Parsons says Ramaphosa’s election has had a highly favourable impact on market perceptions and investment sentiment about South Africa.
 
 
The African Union peacekeeping mission forces ended a ten-day training course yesterday in a move aimed at stepping up efforts to counter widespread use of explosives. While the Nigerian government this week said it has tightened security in detention facilities to ensure maximum protection of life and property ahead of the festive period. Also aiming to protect individuals this festive season, Indonesian police appealed on Thursday for tolerance and respect for other people's religious celebrations after an Islamist group threatened to raid businesses to check for Muslims being forced to wear Santa Claus hats or other Christmas attire.
 
In International news; Sixty-five journalists and media workers were killed worldwide this year, according to figures published by Reporters without Borders.  Syria remains the most dangerous country in the world for journalists, followed by Mexico.
 
And finally…French police are still searching for the man who happened to lean on an unlocked door of a cash management company. The man, discovering his luck, walked back out with two bags of cash valued around four-point-six-billion-Namibian Dollars. And the wreck of Australia’s first naval submarine has been found after a 103-year search. The HMAS AE-1 was the first Allied submarine lost in the First World War.
