KA TIMA MULILO: EAST­ERN Caprivi's schools are open agaIn, but the discon­tent which led to its recent week of chaos is by no means settled.

With three-quarters of the region's teachers back at their jobs and a watchful atmosphere in the streets, the Caprivians are now-waiting for the arrival of a high-ranking Commission of Enquiry headed by a High Court judge to investigate their problems.

Violent protest, ostensibly against top-level education ap­pointments, was initiated by members of the Mafwe com­munity earlier this month. It brought about a near state of

The reported tank movement came hours after Yeltsin gave a fiery speech denouncing the hard-liners, who represent conservative military and KGB forces opposed to Gorbachev's democratic and economic re­forms .

" The junta that has come to power will not stop at anything to keep that power," Yeltsin told the crowd of about 150 000 . .

, 'They understand that things have reached the point that if they lose, they will lose not only their armchairs, but they will be seated on court benches."

Evenashe spoke, there were indications the hard-liners were moving to try to silence Gor­bachev allies.

A Soviet Foreign Ministry official said Foreign Minister Alexander Bessmertnykh had taken "sick" after returning from vacation "but was ex­pected to return to work in a few days."

The coup leaders also claimed that Gorbachev was ill but few believed it. Yeltsin said Gor­bachev had a recent medical examination and was in good health.


The developments occurred as international pressure on the new Soviet rulers grew. US President Bush said he spoke with Yeltsin yesterday and assured him of continued sup­port for efforts to reinstate GOIbachev.

"There will not be normal relations with the Soviet Un­ion as long as the coup is in place," Bush told reporter~.

Despite the show of force, it was clear that hard-liners did not have. undivided loyalty of the Soviet military. Hundreds of the soldiers sent to Moscow went over to Y eltsin' s side and joined demonstrators surround­ing the Russian Parliament building.

Ten tanks from an elite divi­sion and 400 to 500 armed paratroopers dressed in camou­flage uniforms were among them.

One soldier, asked ifhe was prepared to shoot, replied: "A soldier won't shoot at another soldier, and a soldier won't shoot at the people. ' ,

During the night, tanks rumbled through the capital and Soviet paratroopers pa­trolled Manez.h Square next to the Krernlin. Other tank col­umns reportedly moved in the secessionist Baltic republics.

The Kremlin was sealed off, with tanks at every major inter­section and bridge leading to the heart of Soviet power. Scores of armoured personnel carri­ers were parked in the city centre, and four truckloads of riot police sat behin\l St Basil's Cathedral off Red Square.

In his speech, Yeltsin de­rided the coup leaders and urged the crowd to disobey their orders.

One speaker told the crowd that a radio broadcast had said Yeltsin's arrest had been or­dered. "Will we allow that?' , the speaker shouted, to cries of "No!" and "Yeltsin! Yehsin!" However, the report that Yehsin was ordered arrested could not be confirmed.

HUNDREDS of thousands of rand have been stolen in goods and forged cheques, according to the Ministry of Works, Transport and Communication. An internal in­vestigation has even found a mafia-style operation which is spreading corruption at an alarming rate.

The investigation also sug­gests that so far only "the tip of the iceberg" has been un­covered and that serious theft and corruption continues in this and other ministries despite continuing investigations.

According to a press release from the ministry, some staff have already appeared in court, and some have been sacked for serious misconducts, such as theft, fraud and criminal of­fences.

The findings were made by a Commission of Inquiry which permanent secretary Dr Pein-

geondjabi$hipoh appointed on July 5 after several allegations of serious thefts and malprac­tices. Officials in very respon­sible positions were found to be embez.z.ling "huge amounts of state funds", according to the press announcement.

The ministry is also aiming to boost security on Govern­ment property, with a special focus on the Government ga­rage and the cenlral. stores. Some measures have already been taken although these are only preliminary and more can be expected.


September last year, when massive quantities of arms and arnnnmition stolen from a police arsenal in the Northern Indus­trial Area in Windhoek were found at the homes of several young right-wingers.

A planned coup was also uncovered.

Ten men were arrested by the police. One of them, Chris­tian Kleynhans (Josef's brother) was acquitted, while the six other accused jumped bail and fled the country.

The alleged 'brains ' behind the plot, Herbert Tietz. and Holger Moeller, were not ar­rested by the police.

Giving his summary yester­day, presiding judge Justice Bryan O'Linn said the court had come to the conclusion that:

• Kleynhans , Tietz. , Montgomery and the others had planned to overthrow the Namibian government in a violent manner.

• The accused had broken into the police arsenal with the intent to to steal weapons in order to create disorderliness and insecurity in the country. The weapons were hidden until such time they were supposed to be used.

• They endangered state security in the country.

• They planned to assassi­nate, abduct or imprison Cabi­net Ministers.

• They wanted, to form a new government.

• It had also been proved that the accused had met with other people from inside or outside Namibia at Frazzo's plot, just outside Windhoek:, on August 26 last year to dis­cuss how they would attack the homes of Ministers, govern­ment buildings, create chaos and danger to state security and also to attack the Suider­hof military base.

• It was clear that the plamed coup had a connection with a far-right organisation in South Africa, the A WB.

All three men had conspired to overthrow the government.

As far as Kleynhans was concerned, 0 'Linn said he had been fully aware of the planned coup, but had not reported it to the police as he had been in­volved " up to his neck" in the plan.

Kleynhans had also broken' into the police arsenal and taken part in stealing the weapons.

His claims that he was forced or threatened by . Tietz. were rejected. 0 '!inn said Uwe Tietz. had been aware that his brother Herbert had stolen arms from the police arsenal, rut had failed

The investigation found what it called "ruthless inefficiency and indifference" among sen­ior officials who tumed a blind eye to the misconduct.

The rot is also widespread among guards and security systems at the Government's central stores, two Government garages and the Government workshop as well as at the state hospitals.

Government and private vehicles drive in and out with­out being checked at all, partly due to alleged lack of proper control by officials of the Security and Auxiliary Serv­ices of the Department of Works.

Amounts written in cheques by senior officials include a cheque of R33 858 which the culprit paid into her account in Walvis Bay (DJanuary 10. Other fraudulent cheques, often used

inhis duty by not reporting the matter to the police.

He (Uwe) had even admit­ted to hiding the arms and ammunition at his house for a certain period and had been present when his brother came to remove the weapons.

By doing this Tietz. had contravened the Arms Act, the judge said.

O'Linn rejected Tietz.'s claims that he had not known they were stolen or war weap­ons.

The judge said that the court could not prove beyond doubt that Mootgornery had taken part in the break-in at the arsenal.

However, it had been proved that he was aware of the planned coup. "Although, he did not understand the technical word .. staatsgreep" (coup), it is clear that he was aware that the weapons would be used in one or other violeD1 manner to create danger in society," Judge O'Linn said.

Referring to the evidence of a doctor that Montgomery was not an intelligent person, the judge added that to stage a coup, you did not necessarily need intelligent people.

Justice O'Linnconcluded by saying that Kleynhans, Tietz., Montgomery and the other men had planned a coup. By steal­ing weapons and handling them they could have caused havoc and endangered state security.

with unauthorised signatures, include RI 500 on April 5, R703 on April 16 and R731 on December 31. Printed cheques have been stolen from the safes and cashed in shops including Harties, Pep, Fountain Bottle Store and Corner Shop, ac­cording to the Ministry's press release.

Others steal large quantities of medical supplies, corned beef, spades, shovels, uniforms, blankets and other goods from the Government 's central stores. The criminals are organised enough to sell them as far afield as South Africa and Zambia.

A probable "inside opera­tion" has stolen copper wire worthR100ooofromthemain Post Office depot in Wind­hoek which were then sold on to Cape Town via a salvage business in Windhoek in a long and complicated operation.

The judge then presented his judgement as follows:

• Kleynhans was frund guilty of high treason, housebreak­ing with the intent to steal, theft and illegal possession of arms and ammunition.

• Montgomery was convicted of high treason and illegal possession of arms and ammu­nition.

• Tietz. was convicted of high treason, theft, illegal posses­sion of arms and ammunition or supplying ammunition and also of possessing stolen prop­erty, namely weapons.

After their conviction, Tietz. and Montgomery still appeared to be in a relaxed mood and chatted freely with their rela­tives.

It appeared as if the two men were not worried or did not understand the implications and seriousness of their crimes.

Kleynhans burst into tears as he embraced his mother and his girlfriend, who attended the court proceedings. Both his mother and his girlfriend also started crying.

Sentence was postponed to tomorrow at the request of defence counsels, Louis Botes and Herman Oosthuizen, who will present arguments in miti­gation of the three men before sentence is passed.

Justice O 'Linn ordered that the three men should be held in the Windhoek Central Prison.

Reho murder case postponed Ballistics tests for NDF AK-47s

THE killing of a young Rehoboth boy, Premarco Dunn, late last year had a sequel in the Windhoek High Court yesterday.

Three members of the Namibian Defence Force ap­peared briefly in court to face a charge of murder and four charges of attempted murder.

-The three soldiers, Simon Ananias, 30, Stefanus Matheus Lazarus, 29, and Andreas Abed,


23, were not asked to plead and the case was postponed to November 19.

It is alleged that the three soldiers shot and killed Dunn at the farm Twee Rivier, near Rehoboth, on September 20 last year.

They allegedly noticed three members of the Namibian Defence Force in the vicinity. They were all wearing their uniforms.

One of the soldiers alleg­edly shouted to them to stop. Immediately after this, the three NDF men opened fire on the vehicle.

Dunn was hit in the head by a bullet and died instantly.

New company wants to run bus service to the North

On the same day and at the same place, the three soldiers also allegedly attempted to kill David Swartz, Jakob Engel­brecht, Willem Beukes and Bany van Wyk by firing sev­eral shots at them with AK-47 automatic rifles.

According to the charge­sheet, Dunn and the four men were travelling in a Chevrolet pick-up at the fann Twee Rivier. Swartz, the owner of the ve­hicle, was driving at that stage.

Several bullets were fired at the car and the other four pas­sengers narrowly escaped death, while extensive damage was caused to the vehicle.

The case was postponed so that ballistics tests could be carried out on the weapons to find out from which rifle the fatal bullet was fired.

AN application by Namib Contract Haulage (NCH) _ for a road transportation permit, said to be pending since October last year, was heard yesterday by the Road TransportionBoard of the Department of Transport.


No objections were raised by the major transport compa­nies TransNamib, FP du Toit Transport and Bailey's Trans­port, but a decision m the matter still has to be announced.

TransNamib representatives at the hearing said the com­pany would not object to the application provided Namib Contract Haulage did not pick up passengers between Wind­hoek and Tsumeb - to which NCHagreed.

TransNamib operates a train service between all major towns on that route.

Namib Contract Haulage managing director Iithembu ya Jonah y'Iithembu, who made

the application, was represented by an attorney J Agenbach, who presented his arguments supporting the application in front of the Road Transportion Board panel.

Agenbach said Namibia Contract Haulage had been forced to operate illegally since November 161ast year after its application for a permit in October had been refused.

There was a lot of public pressure and need for trans­portation to Oshakati, he added, arguing that other companies providing transportation did not provide sufficient service.

Agenbach saidNamib Con­tract Haulage had bought 15 Mercedes Benz buses in 1989 to transport people to election meetings. After the elections, the company had wanted to get registered to provide a regular transport service up north, he said.

When the application failed, the company undertook illegal test trips between Windhoek and Oshakati. Agenbach said there had been an overwhelm­ing response.

Up to June 13 this year the company had transported a total of 15 000 passengers, he added. Even the 10 buses used by the company had not been enough , for the about 405 passengers that travel up north every weekend.

Agenbach pointed out that the one bus of Baileys' Trans­port Corporation, which also runs trips to Oshakati, could only take 84 passengers.

Further, "the other bus serv­ices" left Windhoek at 18hOO on Fridays which did not give would-be passengers enough time to pack up when coming back from their jobs. .

For this reason, Agenbach said, Namib Contract Haulage

'Slippery' facts on seals THE Namibi~Animal Action Committee hit back at the most recent Government statements on seal culling yes­terday by accusing the Permanent Secretary of Sea Fisheries and Marine Resource,. Calle Schiettwein, of "twisting facts" and the Permanent Secretary of Wild­life, Conservation and Tourism, Hanno Rumpf, of "sheer arrogance" •

TheNAAC said this week's statement by Schlettwein was a "very poor attempt to try to win public sympathy", and said again that "there is NO scien­tific evidence to even suggest that a reduction in seals will increase commercial fish stocks".

The fish consumed by the seals were non~ommercial fish species and all available evi­dence suggested that the pre­cious ecosystems which seal culling is meant to protect would actually benefit from fuller seal involvement. -

The NAAC quotes the Ca­nadian experience in support of its argument and challenges Schlettwein to produce "any reputable evidence to the con­trary".

It also claims seal-numbers are nowhere near their pre-cull levels and could even be de­creasing. "It is the same as shooting vultures for eating lambs, while in fact we all know that ecologically their benefits far outweigh their so­called costs."

The animal rights grrup again points out that South Africa had to bow to pressure from environmentalists on the seal harvesting issue. "What Mr Schlettwein is overlooking is that Namibian groups are only a very small part of the world­wide environmental movement. As much as we would like to pretend otherwise, sealing is a declaration of war on environ-mentalists worldwide,"

Admitting that it found it difficult to veiw such "bar-baric acts" objectively, the NAAC claimed Namil?ia's sealing policy was not only groundless in economic terms, but, also in terms of the coun-try's image abroad.

"Namibia is dependent on foreign goodwill and support for the survival of our fragile economy, " the group said, adding that much promised support had already been with­drawn as a result of the seal slaughter.

"The fight against racism, the fight for women and chil­dren's rights and the animal

rights movement share com­mon moral grounds and are inextricably linked. We are spitting in the faces of some of our best allies."

Thming to Rumpf, the NAAC said the Permanent Secretary was being arrogant in his claim that the Government's policy would not affect tourism. He had not even consulted the industry on the matter, and seemed oblivious to the fact

- that the expected boom in the Namibiantourist market never actually happened.

Given the financial rewards of sealing for the Namibian Government - less than R 10 000 at Cape Cross lastseason­the larger costs were incal­cuable, said the group.

that its enquiry would be speed­ily completed. "The matter is obviously urgent and people are looking for answers, " he said.

After collecting its informa­tion, the Commission will re­turn to Windhoek where it will report to Cabinet. From there its findings will be conveyed to the public at large.

The Regional Commissioner

left at 19hOO. In its previous application the company had applied for permission to leave from the Single Quarters, Agenbach said.

He asked for this to be changed when the municipal­ity set up a central bus station and the Single Quarters were shifted.

He used the same motiva­tion for the company's plans to operate five buses between ­Swakopmund and Oshakati. At the moment only a few mini-

_ buses operated on this route. Agenbach said that com­

plaints by some minibus own­ers that NCH would take away their customers were not valid as these buses were unlicenced -and also posed a serious dan­ger to the safety of passengers.

Agenbach concluded his argument by saying that the services of NCH would be in the best interest of the people of Owambo. He said they were cheaper, newer and better for long distances.

The case is now scheduled for November 19 to 29.

expected that the Commission would speak to a number of leaders. "The President seemed quite convinced that our re­cent problems were not only connected to education, but that they had to do with tribal con­flicts and political infighting. "

If the Commission was to - look beyond the alleged griev­

ances over the educational appointments, it would pre­sumably be meeting with Masubia leaders, including Chief Moraliswane, said Uazenga Of the person at the centre of the storm,

Charles Simvuia.-Uazenga said the new Education DireCtor was "getting on with his job".

"He is not really moving with confidence in the posi­tion at this stage. He is mainly working in his office rather than travelling around the schools which is what the job would normally would entail. "

Like everyone else, it seems, Simvula is waiting for the outcome of the Commission of Enquiry before he can really relax. Uazenga described the situation as "not conducive to relaxation at the moment".

"We used to live ina peace­ful region, but now we are aware that the. atmosphere has changed. You can feel it and the eyes of the peopl,e in the street tell you that something has happened ...

He thought things would improve with time but also stressed the need for solutions. "People here have a lot of problems here. I don't say they will react as violently as they did recently but they are defi­nitely looking for some clear direction from the govern­ment."

4 Wednesday August 21 1991 THE ~AMIBIAN

Shame on you ALLOW me to express my opinion on the recent tribal outburst in the Caprivi. As a person who hails from that part of the country, I cannot but involve myself in the ongoing controversy, even if, for me, it means stooping rather low.

Yes, as Caprivians, and only a year-and-a-half after inde­pendence, we have scored another first in Namibia. It was Canu in 1964, it was the Canu­Swapo crisis in 1980, it was the Canu internal crisis in 1982, it was the Canu-NPF in 1~88, it was the Canu-UDF in 1989 and so on. And believe it or not, now in 1991 it is the Ca­privi tribal conflict!

Where is our ethnic pride, Mafwes and Subias? Shall we not rather direct our energy (and we seem to have a lot of it judging from the recent pro­tests, demonstrations, looting, street-fighting etc) toward the upliftment of our impoverished social and economic infrastruc­ture?

I tend to agree with most of the comments and opinions expressed by fellow Caprivi­ans (1be Namibian, August 14) that every other Namibian is moving forward but we are moving backwards.

It is a fact (and here I fully agree with Education Minister Nahas Angula) that education has, in this instance, been used as a scapegoat to stir up age­old tribal adversity. A tribal adversity which fitted in with ' the aspirations of South Afri­can apartheid colonialism - in simple language (for the sake of my 'tribal chiefs'): divide and rule.

The intellectual and modem political poverty in which the two tribal chiefs (Mamili and Moraliswani) wallowed in colonial days gone by was such that they unwittingly became the victims of myopic tribal dreams of impossible grandeur, power and ethnic status.

On the other hand, the colo­nialist used the two tribal chiefs as stooges and puppets to ele­vate himself to a position of authority, while at the same time making himself a referee in the 'apartheid' match be­tween the two tribes.

Now the paradox is: when South African colonial admin­istrators and officials occupied positions of authority ill the

~ ~ ., ..

Caprivi why didn't the Mafwe chief raise trails of dust in the streets of Katima Mulilo in protest? Why didn't the Mafwe chief loot shops and vandalise • colonial' govenunent build­ings and vehicles?

Is it not because the two were busy lining their pockets, or that they were simply will­ing sell-outs in a servant-mas­ter relationship? After all the genealogical and royal tribal lineage of th Mafwe chief is indeed questionable and in dispute.

It is an open secret in Ca­privi that Chief Mamili is a 'political' appointee, imposed on the Mafwe community by

, self-seeking politicians who are themselves not even ashamed to be linked with the recent tribal outburst.

I have been shamelessly 'instructed' to issue a public apology by certain Windhoek­based Caprivians to Chief Mamili because of recent remarks I presumably made on NBC's 'Open Line' pro­grnmme. Let me state un:quivo­cally that I, Edward Ndopu, am not prepared to a~logise to anyone for advocating the mass distribution of the Na- . mibian constitution in the Caprivi. I went on to state that I fervently hoped Chief Ma­mili would utilise his trip to State House to request the Namibian constitution from President Nujoma.

As far as I amconcerned, the only way to eradicate the scourge of tribalism that per­vades in the Caprivi is to intro­duce political education courses in homes and schools (and possibly some fundamentals of

. Marxism-Leninism). First in line for such courses should be the two tribal chiefs (especially Mamili) and their entire Kutas and Indunas. 'This is what I saidonNBC.

it is highly ironical that the political fullbacks who feigned concern over the Mafwe tribal outburst were none otheJ than the selfsame lackeys in the old colonial dispensation.

Who are the FCNs Patrick Limbo and the UDFs Gabriel Siseho and other self-pro­claimed 'holy fathers' of Ca­privi to pass credible opinions on the tribal outburst?

The future of Caprivilies in the hands and power ,of the present young generation. The onus to redress the shameful

scourge is now the indomi­table task of the young in Caprivi. However, the eradi­cation of tribalism in that area cannot be achieved without the co-operation, support and po­litical understanding of the entire people of Namibia.

The youth in Caprivi must guard against tribal sweetalk, the youth there must realise that tribalism is much worse than AIDS. It is true that AIDS kills, but even more true that tribalism obliterates a nation. The choice is yours!


Note: This letter has been slightly shortened .• Ed.

Chief's tribalism I WOULD like to refer to the socalled revelations by Chief Mamili published in The Namibianentitled 'The Mafwe state their case' on August 31.

If this revelation comes from the llief himself then all peace and qeedom-Ioving Namibi­ans should without hesitation declare him the 1991 cham­pion of tribalism - for it ap­pears he is unable to think beyond the tribe.

. The point I would like to make to Chief Mamili and a small section of the Mafwe surrounding him is that the cheapest colonisation method used to colonise Namibia was through the existence of tribes - the championing of one tribe at the expense of others so as to smoothly pave the way for the bantustanisation of Namibia.

It is disappointing to learn that Chief Mamili claims Ka­tima Mulilo is a Mafwe area . Caprivi knew no boundaries even in the time of th~ coloni­alists.

Why should we talk of tribal divisions and tribal bounda­ries at this time? What are we going to benefit from tribal conflicts apart from rolling back the progressive idea of national reconciliation the ruling party is keen to implement in orde! to mould a healthy and pros­perous nation?

I am challenging Chief Mamili to tell the Namibian nation today the book of his­tory he and his associates read that indicates Caprivl knew boundaries before and after colonisation, apart from the bantustan system that the Boers

perpetrated in Namibia against the will of the inhabitants. If the socalled revelation came from Chief Marnili directly, then he should apologise to the Namibian nation for the in­conveniences provoked by the violent demonstration and the subsequent damage to peace and nation-building.

The prefabricated allegation that the recently appointed people in the Ministry ofEdu­cation are unqualified, is a case of character assassination and if I were them, I would take you to court . If Chief Mamili is a real

chief as he claims, he should stop listening to Mishake Muyongo who wants to ac­complish his political ambi­tions of divide and rule.

In this patriotic process of moulding a nation, the concept of champiooing tribalism should be looked at as a politicallia­bility that is detrimental to nation-building. Caprivi as an integral part of Namibia be­longs to all Namibians and still knows no boundary,

11leClUefhasfiUledtograsp the meaning of freedom and national reconciliation. He can still be an asset to the nation if he dissociates himself from Muyongo although we know that his assumption of duties as chief of the Mafwe was a process engineered by Muyongo.


Mafwe misled THE majority of Mafwe were misled by the colonial mental­ity and still have its hangover. Do they think people were fighting for tribalism?

Referring to the protest strikes and demonstrations in Eastern Caprivi, I feel that there was nothing wrong with demon­strations per se, but I do ques­tion the motives behind it

When lliefMamili was here in the capital, he was inter­viewed and said that he didn't discuss anything with Presi­dent Sam Nujoma. What then was the reason for him to come here and see the President ifhe had nothing to discuss?

Please Mafwes, don't blem­ish the idea of reconciliation and national building and the bright future of the Namibian children through irrelevant, unconstitutional and unreason­able demonstrations and loot­ing in an independent Namibia. Tnbalism nrust die and be buried once and for all in our country.


On conflict

ALLOW me to air my views on tribal conflict in the Ca­privi. Just like other patriotic Namibians, I feel that the root causes of the present squabbles on the side of the Mafwe, are many, rather than being the " recent senior appointments-of Masubias in the Ministry of Education. ,.;l.._

lhe conflict between the two should be looked at from his­torical, social and political perspectives. Historically, the Mafwe have suffered from an 'infuriority complex' and it was this and other petty issues that led to the socalled border dis­pute between them and the Masubias.

In fact this was merely used to camouflage the real 'issues.

Socially; the Mafwe are a heterogenous group, made up of smaller tribal units. To keep the varies and numerous units together, it became necessary for some politicians and their surrogates to look for loop­holes in govemment structures and sub-structures with a view to mobilising strong tribal sentiments which in turn would orientate the minds of the Mafwes into supporting these politicians. .

The Mafwe were tradition­ally supported by South Africa and it was only on the eve of the implementation ofResolu­tion 435 that one quarter of them started supporting Swapo and other smaller parties.

It was only Lovemore Lupalezwi who continued to remain committed to the struggle waged by Swapo and' it was for this reason he was hated so nmch by fellow Mafwes and he was not promoted, even though he was well qualified.

Much friction was caused between the two groups, and this started in the colonial days when the Mafwes gave the Caprivi Strip to the RSA in return for preferential treat­ment.

The Masubias on the other hand, chose freedom, and this made the Mafwes bitter. The Masubias still have a deep affiliation to Swapo and this was evident from the number who went into exile with Swapo,

The exiled component also came back with better qualifi­cations than the Mafwe and ,this deepened the already ex­isting inferiority complex,


Lesson for DT A

TIllS letter is directed to the DT A leadership and citizens of Namibia in the Caprivi with specific reference to the Mafwe and Masubia tribal authorities,

There is presently an incon­gruous state of affairs in the region brought about by the Mafwe uprising against the appointments of Messrs Sin­vula, Kaba jani and Mukono to high posts in the Education Ministry.

These promoted individuals are Masubia by tribe and the Chief of the Mafwe in con­junction with the DTA allege that these peqJle were appoimed on the basis of tribalism and nepotism. Therefore the DT A and ChiefMamili organised a demo which brought the gov­enunent offices there to a complete closure for more than a fortnight.

If these men were promoted ,in this manner, thenIcategori­cally condemn the practice of promotion and call upon the Prime Minister to investigate and resolve the issue as soon as possible. Employees must be promoted on merit and not along tribal lines.

At this juncture I must add -that if people from one tribe qualify for the posts, then they must be given them, and there must be no fuss about it.

Chief Mamili and the DTA have a different opinion, it seems. Judging from the way they ll}oOilised their people to fight their Masubia counter­parts iilA WB/lnkatha style.

There is nothing wrong With the demonstration in principle though - the chief and his people were practising their democratic right but it was conducted in an unacceptable manner. In a

democratic and independen~ country like Namibia anyone has the right to stage a demon­stration in a peaceful manner, but not in the way this was carried out where there wa s damage to property, theft and even bodily harm.

Sometimes I fail to compre­hend the IYf A supporters ' concept of democracy. Instead of depicting nation-building actions, the groups resorted to violence in an attempt to draw the Govenunent's attention to the matter. Namibia buried tribalism, segregation, repres­sion and divide and rule on March 21 1990.

Namibians in Caprivi and elsewhere must get rid of the tribal consciousness infiltrated into their brains by the apart­heid regime.

The DTA has a, relatively . big role to play to bring about peaceful socio-economic change in our country. They must occupy their 'watchdog' position in a more democratic manner and not actively in­duce unrest and violence.

I therefore appeal to both Chief Mamili and Mishake Muyongo to play their role as progressive leaders and not inspire !he people with the spirit of rebellion against the gov­enunent of the day.

If the DT A fail to unite the Caprivi comnnmity, how could they manage to unite the Namibian nation if they were in power? Fellow Namibians, are you not glad you voted Swapo into power?


Caprivi conclusion SOME of us have been closely observing the situation in Caprivi for quite some time and have come to the conclu­sion that Mishake Muyongo is the root cause of the unrest in that region.

We so conclude because every time he goes to the re­gion, somethi.Q.g negative hap­pens there. When we became independent, Muyongo mobil­ised many Koevoet and/or ex­SW A TF members from the Caprivi not to join the national army or the Swapo army as he calls it.

But the question is, where does his source of income as an MP come from?

Looking at the present prob­lem in the region one can see it is political rather than educa­tional. For those saying it is educational, we ask: what has Coimbra (a shopowner) to do with education?

It seems that the youth at­tacked that shop because the DT A is no longer able to exe­cute the bread and meat policy due to lack of funds because their master (the South Afri­can regime) is about to col­lapse.

OnthequestionofMafweas a tribe, Muyongo gave the wrong information because Mafwe is not the second biggest tribe in the region.

What is today known as the Mafwe tribe comprises the following groups, and we stress the fact that these are inde­pendent from the Mafwe: Yeyi, Mbulrushu, Totela and the San. If there is any evidence to dis­pute this, then let it be proved .

For the first time . in the Mozambique Liberations Front's history, a secret ballot is being used. At the previous five congresses, the central committee was elected on a show of hands after discussing a single list presented by the outgoing leadership. This time matters are much more complicated. There are about 400 names on the ballot paper distributed to the 700 delegates at the congress.

Rent boycott in Vaal ends JOHANNESBURG: An agreement to end a seven-year rent and services boycott in Vaal Triangle townships was signed yesterday by, among others, the Transvaal Provincial Administration and the Vaal Civic Association.

The document, which was signed at a ceremony in Johan­nesburg, was negotiated over a period of nine months and took eight drafts to complete.

The agreement is regarded as a major breakthrough as the nationwide rent and services boycott had its genesis in Lekoa - the area encompassing Sebokeng, ShaIpeville, Boipetong and Bophe­long. After the services boycott took hold in those townships, it quickly spread to the eastern Cape, whereafter it gripped most black townships.

Troops seize control of

Latvian radio RIGA, USSR: Soviet troops seized control of Latvian broadcast studios and the central telephone exchange yesterday, as coup leaders continued to crack down on the independence-seeking Baltic republics.

Onemandriving a mini-van in Riga was shot and killed by soldiers late Monday, accord­ing to Latvian radio. His death was the first reported casualty of Monday's coup tht toppled Soviet President Mikhail Gor­bachev and brought hard-lin­ers to power.

On Monday, Soviet General Fyodor Kuzmin declared him­self de facto ruler of the three Baltic republics - Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia - and So­viet troops forced their way into TV and radio stations, beating protesters. Soviet warships also blocked the main

1he Baltic republics had been at the forefront of the inde­pendence movement in the Soviet Union, which Soviet hard-liners have vigorously

Before dawn yesterday, Soviet soldiers stormed the Latvian broadcast studios in Riga's central square, said Latvian Parliament spokesman Valdis Lebans.

"They came there by three armored personnel carriers and five militia jeeps. They blew up the doors of the radio build­ing," Lebans said of the 02h45 GMT assault.

MOSCOW: Key questions in the wake of the coup that ousted Soviet President Mikhall Gor­bachev: WHAT HAPPENED TO GORBACHEV?

TIle 60-year-old Soviet presi­dent was wrapping up a two­week vacation in the Crimean town ofForos whenbe was ousted Monday.

Vice President Gennady Ya­nayev, who seized power, told a news conference that Gorbachev "is now in the Crimea for vaca­tion and treatment. He became very tired over the years, which is ' natural, and- some time is needed to restore his health." Few, hOwever, believed that Gor­bachev was ill. Russian Federa­lion President Boris Yelisin said Gorbachev was being "de­tained." IS THE MILITARY HOLD­ING TOGETHER?

The military leadership, es­pecially those hard-liners in con­trol, appears united against Gor­bachev. But it is difficult to know if the deep dissatisfaction in the armed forces could lead to breaks in unity. Late Monday night, part of the elite Taman­skaya Tank Division came over to Yeltsin's side. Individual tank commanders have told .report­ers they won't fire on the people, and one said he wouldn't shoot at Yeltsin. TO WHAT DEGREE ARE THE NEW LEADERS COM­MITTED" TO POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC RE­FORM?

Although Yanayev has said that the emergency measures "in no way mean renunciation of the course tqward profound reforms, " he and other coup leaders have spoken out against Gorbachev's reforms.

They already have rolled back on glasnost, shutting down all but hard-line Communist Party newspapers, as well as inde­pendent broadcast media in Russia and the Baltics. A state­ment to world leaders by Ya­naye,; did not mention the words "market economy." HOW COMMITTED WERE THE SOVIET PEOPLE TO GORBACHEV AND HIS RE­FORMS?

Gorbachev has been ex1Iemely unpopular in recent years as the economy has worsened. Radi­cal reformers such as Yeltsin have garnered more support, es­pecially after Gorbachev turned toward the hard-line elements in the party last fall and winter. But coup leaders such as De­fense Minister Dmitri Yazov and Prime Minister Valentin Pavlov alsQ are unpopular, the latter for suddenly withdrawing 50- and lOO-ruble notes from circulation earlier this year. WHAT KIND OF PUBLIC OPPOSITION IS APPEAR­ING?

YeItsin has called for a na­tionwide general strike to pro­test the coup, but it is unclear how much support he will get. Coal miners in Vorkuta in the Soviet far north and in Kuiilets in Siberia began strikes early Tuesday. Lithuanian President Vy~utas Landsbergis has urged acts of non-violent civil disobe­dience "in the Baltic republic. The leaders of the Ukrainian in­dependence movement Rukh are backing Yeltsin's call. - Sapa­AP.

Gorbachev, a leader who lacked popular support

LONDON: British newspapers praised Mikhail Gor­bachev yesterday for his effect on the world but said his attempts at reforming the Soviet system were a failure.

Tocqueville's famous thesis that it is when an authoritarian system begins to reform itself that itis most vulnerable," it said. The Guardian said Gor­

bachev's removal as Soviet President by Communist hard­liners was" a tragedy of plane -tary proportions' '.

Internationally, he freed Eastern Europe, reunified Germany, ended 40 years of nuclear confrontation between East and West, but at home he was a fixer and a fudger, the paper said.

"If glasnost was real, per­estroika was not," it added. "From the very beginning, it was an incoherent mish-mash that eroded the command econ­omy without going far enough to let the free market work its magic."

The Indepell-dent called Gorbachev "a major histori­cal figure" but said he clung too long to the belief that the system could be reformed rather than replaced.

, 'He lacked a clear vision of the future. He missed the chance to embark on radical reforms much earlier ... He fumbled and compromised when he should have been decisive," The in­dependent said.

"He was a reformer himself and he responded to the de­mands of refo~ers; but he was a comnnmist, too ... and also responded to the anxieties and demands of the Soviet Right,' , it said.

The Times said Gorbachev failed in the central task of any leader - to clothe himself in popular legitimacy - but "he will be the only post-revolu­tionary Soviet leader to merit a favourable political obituary". The tabloid Daily Mail

newspaper put it simply:

The Daily Telegraph said the story of Gorbachev was a trag­edy in the exact sense of the word "because he failed, and yet displayed greatness".

Gorbachev gave the Soviet people a glimpse of a new dawn of free speech, of travel, but it would be wrong to overstate his reforms in the Soviet Un­ion, The Times said in its edi­torial "TIle Soviet people everr tually responded with cynicism to his leadership, confirming

"He did what nobody thought possible: presided over the peaceful dismantling of the Soviet empire in Eastern Eu­rope. But he could not do what arty supermarket manager cmsiders routine: fill the shelves with goods." - Sapa-Reuter.

Russian fatalism to fore MOSCOW: Russian leader Borls Yeltsin and the hardllne Emergency Committee fought a tug.of­war over the country's future yesterday, but In one Moscow district people were caught up in more world!y affairs like sex and sausages.

In the working class district of Izmailovo far to the east of the city centre tunnoil. the ousting of President Mikhail Gorbachev by his fonner dep­uty, Gennady Y anayev, and seven others has only driven the masses to new heights of apathy.

" Talk of a general strike - as demanded by Yeltsin, the Russian president and main opposition figure -left residents cold as they walked along a tree-lined boulevard.

"I'll tell you one thing," said 40-year-old hair­dresser Nina. "Before. they called on us to work better and we didn't care. Today they tell us not to work at all and we don't care."

A young woman, well-dressed and armed with a fashionable cocker spaniel, said Yanayev and company were far from her thoughts.

"I just can't think about him now. I have another man on my mind at the moment," she purred.

Some were more direct. "The most important thing is they don't ban sex

again. As for the rest, I don't care," said a black­marketeer.

. At a long food queue, the crowd of about 30 was more "intent on a quick purchase than political discourse.

"Can't you see that we're waiting for hot dogs?" said the last in line, as the others glared.

But not all were indifferent to politics. Two elderly women, sharing a park bench, said

Y eltsin belonged in chains, trussed up like the Yemelyan Pugachov. the leader of a bloody 18th century peasant rebellion.

"Otherwise even the new people won't be able to do anything if he is still going crazy," said one of them. Execution. they agreed, was the best solu­tion for the problem.

In the city centre,residents showed greater seri­ous interest, and greater uncertainty.

.. It is very difficult to understand what is hap­pening," said a worker, out on his lunch break. " Of course it can be called a military coup. "

The worker, about 40, said he was ready to help defend Yeltsin and the Russian govemment from possible attack by Soviet troops.

Of more than Qne dozen random interviews, he was the only one willing to take part in the political struggle.

Heavy doses of Russian fatalism were more typical.

"We have actually returned to where we began. the same old people, the same old slogans," said Gennady, a pensioner. "Everything can only get worse. "

A retired worker from the Soviet mint, groaning under two heavy bags of food, said she had lost all faith.

"I once believed in all our leaders, Yeltsin and Gorbachev_ Now I don't know what to believe," she said_ .. It is very frightening." - Sapa-Reuter,." .

China watches Soviet crisis

BEIJING: In declaring that the fall of Mikhail Gor­bachev will not impede bilateral relations, China's communist rulers made it known yesterday that they are more than willing to accommodate a tougher Soviet leadership.

But Beijing's orthodox lead­ers are reserving celebration over the retu~ of hard-liners like themselves, diplomats and analysts said. Like the rest of the world, they' are watching anxiously to see what will happen.

"They could express more support when the situation becomes clearer," another diplomatic observer predicted.

As one of the last world powers to react to Gotbachev' s fall, China said that after "the changes that have occurred in the Soviet Union" bilaterial relations would "not be af­fected and continue to develq>. "

The foreign ministry, which issued the statement some 20 hours after the Soviet crisis broke, fell back on an often­used policy stand to say that the events in the Soviet Union were its "internal affairs."

The Soviets could "solve their own problems by them­

. selves," it said. But Western analysts said

that China's leaders are likely

to harbour sympathy for any Soviet government that hopes to preserve Communism.

Beijing has watched pow­erlessly as the socialist regimes of eastern Europe fell and Gotbachev renounced Marx­ism.

The statement yesterday made no mention of Gotbachev, who crafted the historic Sino­Soviet reconciliation in May 1989 after a 30-year ideologi­cal break.

China's ultra-conservatives are known to be highly critical of his reforms, and an internal party document has named him as the man guilty of allowing European communism to slip out of control.

A national newspaper, the China Youth News, blasted Gotbachev's programme ear­lier this month, saying it had "completely revised the na-' ture of the Soviet Communist party" and moved Moscow toward the Western camp. -Sapa-AFP.

Enkelkwartiere 'n meulsteen vir munisipaliteit

ANDRE Rousseau. Bestuurder van die Omulunga-woonbuurt op ,Grootfontein het gister bevestig die m unisipali teit gaan weer 'n groot tekort op die be­groting vir die. enkelkwartiere op die dorp toon en hy verwag vanjaar weer 'n verlies van meer as eenhonderd duisend rand.

Die syfers vir die boekjaar wat op 30 junie gesluit het dui op 'n groot tekort maar sal eers teen die dnde van September ampte­lik bekend wees.

Rousseau se die probleem word veroorsaak deur die groot aantal persone wat in die kwarti­ere woon sonder om daarvoor te betaal. Die kwartiere hetagthon­derd geregistreerde inwoners maar daar is ongeveer seshon­derd wat ook daar woon en glad nie betaal vir dienste nie. Daar was 'n geringe styging in die tariewe wat bewoners moet be­taal maar dit is nie genoeg om die tekort weg te werk nie.

Die tekorte word veral vero­orsaak deur inwoners van die kwartiere wat nie geregistreer is

nie en nie vir dienste soos water­en elektrisiteitsvoorsiening be­taal nie. Inflasie word ook deels verantwoordelik gehou vir die tekorte wat op die begroting ondervind word. Die tariewe vir voorsiening van water en el­ektrisiteit styg voortdurend en dra by tot 'n styging in die tekort.

Die onderhoudskoste vir die kwartiere styg ook gedurig en die munisipaliteit kan ook nie daarmee voorbly nie.

Die meeste van die geregis­treede inwoners van die kwarti­ere betaal gereeld vir hul dienste en daar word geen noemen­swaardige probleme met die betaling ondervind nie.

Daar is oak 'n noue samew­erking tussen horn en die inwon­ers van die enkelkwartiere. se Rousseau. Hy het eergisteraand 'n vergadering met 'komiteelede van die enkelkwartiere gehou en die samesprekings het in 'n posi­tiewe gees plaasgevind.

Op die vergadering is onder meer besluit om gesamentlik toe te sien dat vandalisme in die

kompleks hog geslaan word. Die komitee het die voomeme om orde in die kwartiere te handhaaf uitgespreek en iJeloof om met die polisie in verbinding te tree indien hulle van vandalisme op die persele bewus raak.

Die munisipaliteit wil. vol­gens Rousseau. van die enkelk­wartiere in die huidige vorm ontslae raak maB:I' ~an dit nie doen alvorens daar altematiewe behuising beskikbaar is nie.

Daarmoettenminstedriehon­derd goedkoop huise gebou word om 'n gedee1te van die inwoners van die kwartier te akkommodeer.

Die kwartiere sal indien die fondse beskikbaar is in woon­eenhede van vier kamers omskep word vir die oorbly­wende gedeelte van die inwon­ers. Rousseau het egter daarop gewys dat dit nie gedoen kan word met die munisipaliteit se begroting alleen nie en die opsie sal eers oorweeg kan word in­dien die regering 'n gedeelte van die fondse kan dra.

Die rob-saga duur voort DIE Namibian Animal Action Committee(NAAC) het die verklaring deur die Minis­terie van Seevisserye waarin beweer word roboeste aan die kuste van die land is noodsaaklik as vals en onwetenskaplik bestempel. Die verklaring se voorts dat roboeste in die land slegs gedoen word met die doel om die testikels van die robbe uit te voer na die Ooste waar dit as seksopkikkers gebruik word.

Die NAAC is teleurgesteld oor die ministerie se veron­tagsaming van die pleidooie van bew~gsbewuste groepe om nie met die oes van robbe voort te gaan nie.

Die verklaring deur CaIle Schlettwein, Pennanente Sekre­taris in die Departement van Water en Visserye, waarin hy beweer roboeste is noodsaak­likom die visbronne 'nkanste gee om te herstel word deur die NAAC beskryf as 'Un swak poging om feite te verdraai om die simpatie van die publiek te WCIL"

Daar bestaan volgens hier­die groep geen wetenskaplike bewyse dat die kommersiele visbronne voordeel uit die oes van robbe sal trek nie.

Robbe, word gese, vreet vis en die hoeveelheid wat hul opvreet is selfs meer as wat deur die mens gevang word maar die .spesies waaraan die robbe voorkeur gee word nie vir kommersiele doeleindes gevang nie.

Robbe word ook in die

die sensitiewe mariene ekosis­teem maar die vertroue word uitgespreek dat die visbronne selfs kan vermeerder indien oeste stopgesit word soos bewys is in die geval van Kanada.

Schlettwein word uitgedaag om enige wetenskaplike in­ligting van enige betroubare wetenskaplike te bring wat kan bewys dat die stopsit van roboe­ste aan die kus van Kanada nie gelei het tot 'n verbetering van die visbronne in die land nie.

Die verldaring se Schlettwein het vergeet dat die Narnibiese bewaringsgroepe slegs 'n klein gedeelte van die wereldwye omgewingsbewaringgroepe is en roboeste is 'n verklaring van oodog teen die omge­wingsgroepe regoor die wereld.

Die enigste land wat nog voortgaan met roboeste is Japan waar die ekommie sterk genoeg is om die druk van omge­wingsgroepe te weerstaan. Selfs hierdie land was oniangs ver­plig om toegewings tot die omgewingsgroepe te maak.

Narnibie word beskryf as 'n land wat moet hoop op "buite-

landse goedgunstigheid en on­dersteuning om sy sensitiewe ekonomie aan die gang te hou."

Die land het a1reeds baie in hierdie sin verloor en geld wat vir die land verklaar is, is terug­getrek. Indien daar 'n veldtog teen die land begin word in protes teen die oes van robbe kan hierdie neiging voortduur en die land kan selfs meer verloor.

Die land is ook alreeds gedreig met 'n handelsboikot en 'n boikot op' visprodukte van die land.

Die karakoelindustrie word ook beskryf as baie gevoelig vir veranderinge in die rob­bedryf. Indien daar 'n veldtog teen die oes van robbe begin word kan dit maklik oorwaai tot die karakoelbedryf met negatiewe gevolge vir kar­akoelpryse.

Die inkomste wat in die verlede deur die staat vir roboe­ste by Kaapkruis gemaak is was minder as RIO 000 maar die koste verbonde aan die

GEEN sukses is dusver in die soektog na sewe mans wat uit aanhouding op Rundu ontsnap het gemaak nie en die soektog na die mans duur nog onverpoosd voort.

Kommisarls Siggi Eimbeck van die polisie het gister gese hy het nog nie bewus geraak van enige vordering in die soektog na die mans nie.

Ses van die mans het na bewering vroeg Saterdagoggend uit die polisieselle op Rundu ontsnap terwyl die sewende dieselfde aand uit die hospi­taa1 op Rundu die hasepad gekies

het. Die ses mans het na bewer­

ing die tralies van hul selle afgesaag met 'n saaglem wat vermoedelik in 'n brood die selle ingesmokkel is.

Hul name is aangegee as Shikongo Ngondo, Simbo Seyini. Andreas Sitoba, Fer­nando Ndara, Fernando Mundjendje en Lucas Ndara.

Die sewende man, Andreas Ndara, het uit die hospitaal op Rundu ontsnap toe die polisie offisier wathom moes bewaak horn onbewaak gelaat het om dringend 'n oproep na die po­lisiestasie te gaan maak sodat 'n voertuig gestuur kon word om hul by die hospitaal te kom haal. Dit is Ndara se tWeede ontsnapping vanjaar.

Seles skips Sli:m.s WASHINGTON: Top-seeded Monica Seles ~ithdrew from the Virginia Slims of Washington on Monday, this time getting her mother to call in her absence.

Seles was asked to compete in the 350 000 dollars event when Steffi. Graf, the world's top-ranked player, pulled out with a shoulder injury.

The 17-year-old Yugoslav said she'd consider the request, then had her mother call a tour official to say she would not

play in Washington. Seles has had an ev~ntful, if

not event-filled, summer. Af­ter winning the first two legs of the Grand Slam this year, the Australian and French Opens, she pulled out of Wimbledon, citing injuries. She sent a note from her doctor to

the Women's Tennis Federa­tion, explaining her absence.

She also missed the Federa­tion Cup in July, which got her barred from the 1992 Barce­lona Olympics.

Also, Seles was fined by the WTA for playing in a New Jersey exhibition tournament, while missing tour sponsored events.

Late Monday, Gerard Smith, executive director of the Women's Tennis Association, issued a statement from the WT A's St Petersburg headquar­ters in which he said, "The WT A will carefully review its procedures for accepting tour­nament entries and withdraw­als in an effort to ensure that incidents of this nature will not recur".

Back on the court, the two youngest Maleeva sisters, Katerina and Magdalena, scored first-round victories.

Katerina, the sixth seed, defeated Carrie Cunningham, 6-4,6-0, while Magdalena, the youngest of the three Bulgar­ian sisters, topped Sweden's Catarina Lindqvist, 6-4, 6-3.

Oldest sister, Manuela, took the week off to rest up for next week's US Open.

In other matches, Nathalie Tauziat of France, the eighth seed, was upset by Czechoslo­vakia's Andrea Strnadova, 6-4, 7-5; ReSina Rajchrtova of Czechoslov31da defeated He­lenKelesiofCanada, 7-5,6-4; and South African Mariaan de Swardt beat Rosalyn Fairbank­Nideffer, 6-3, 7-6(7-3). -Sapa.


He has now paid 1,2-million pounds for Woods whose future at lbrox had been under giant cloud since the arrival of Scotland goalkeeper Andy Goram from Hibernian.

, 'I'm delighted to be back in English football," Woods said. I've been with Trevor Francis at three clubs before. He's a winner and so am I." Francis said: "In my book any club that aims to be successful has to have the best goalkeeper they can buy. This is what Sheffield Wednesday now have."

SA athletics receive boost SOUTH African Athletics Committee member and Soweto Sports Council chairperson, Banile Sindani, was given an unexpected and well-received hearing at the African Bloc Conference of the International Amateur Athletics Federation in Tokyo.

His address drew tremendous applause and SAAC feelings after the conference are that the African Bloc countries will recommend that the IAAF accept South Africa's temporary membership of the African Bloc.

However, media feeling in Tokyo is that South Africa is out in the cold. After Sindani's address however, Lesotho and Kenya passed a motion that the Athletics Committee should "get very involved" in sorting out the turmoil, which is currently raging in South African athletics.

The IAAF' s Lamien Diack set a deadline of October 12 for the South African atletics community to get its house in order.

Williams team unchanged THE Williams Formula One team announced an unchanged driver line-up for 1992 Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese. - The pair have triumphed in four of the last five Grands Prix,

with three times winner Mansell challenging strongly for Brazil­ian Ayrton Senna's world crown. Team owner Frank Williams said: "I am a great believer in continuity and 1 am sure that N~gel and Riccardo, who have worked so hard forus already this season, will be able to achieve even more next year."

Briton Mansell, second to Senna in Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix, drove for Williams from 1985-88. He was persuaded to rejoin this season despite announcing his retirement midway through a frustrating 1990 with Ferrari.

ItalianPatrese, third at the Hungarian and the most experienced competitor in Formula One, becomes the first Williams driver to remain with the team for five consecutive years.

Marseille seize Caen MARSEILLE beat Caen 3-1 away to move closer to the top of the French soccer championship. The title-holders, unbeaten but largely unimpressive in earlier games this season, joined Metz and Monaco on 10 points. Metz, who beat St Etienne 1-0 lead on goal difference.

Monaco crashed 2-0 at Paris St Germain their first defeat of the season. Marseille's performance inNormandy was most reassur­ing for Yugoslav coach Tomislav lvic and 8,3-rnillion dollars recruit Trevor Steven of England, who joins his new teammates.

Jean-Pierre Papin, France's top marksman for the past four years, was back on target with goals in the 17th and 76th minutes, the second a penalty. Ghana's Abedi Pele scored in the 41st minute while Olivier Pickeu salvaged some pride with a reply for Caen early in the second half.

FORMER Brazilian superstar Pele DoNascimento urged Fifa to change present soccer rules to make the game more exciting.

MONTECA TINI, Italy: Pele, one of the greatest play­ers in soccer history, has called for radical changes in current rules to make soccer more exciting for fans.

" All sports, from tennis to basketball, have progressed while soccer has changed almost nothing in its rules. It's time to change, " said Pele, who is in this Tuscan city to follow the Under-17 World Champion­ships.

The international soccer federation, FIFA, is experiment­ing with some new rules in the Under-17 competition.

They include linuting off­sides calls to the 16 metres closest to the goal, and giving penalties to goalies who use their hands to stop backpasses from teammates.

Pele said he fully supports FIFA's attempt to improve the game, but added the changes should be more significant.

The 51-year-old Brazilian, who retired in the late 1970s, suggested abolishing the wall on free kicks and expelling defenders who foul a forward

from the back. He also called for eliminat­

ing throw-ins, instead making , players kick the ball back into play when it has gone out of bounds.

Pele, who scored 1 280 goals inhis career, also said the area in which goalies can leap to catch or knock away passes should be restricted, to give better chances for forwards to launch headers.

"FIFA is a big industry and has concentrated on some major economic innovations in the past few years. Now it's up to the rules, " Pele said.

He said the new offsides rules being tried in the Under-17 games in Tuscany "have al­ready reduced the number of players performing at midfield, who under previous rules car­ried out an obsessive pressing, drying up the source of play. ' , - Sapa-AP.

Soviet sports stars are sweating it out LONDON: Some Soviet athletes phoned home. Others sought ways to leave their homeland. And an American soccer team was glad it left the Soviet Un­ion 24 hours before Mon­day's coup.

The overthrow of President Mikhail Gorbachev by Krem­lin hard-liners left Soviet ath­letes abroad in limbo and those at home wondering if they will be able to compete in foreign events.

The Canada Cup hockey tournament prepared for a possible Soviet withdrawal.

A So~iet track and field official questioned whether his team will make it to the World Championships in Tokyo.

Soviets kept a low profile at . the cycling world champion­

ships in Stuttgart, Gennany, at the rowing world champion­ships in Vienna and at the European Swimming Cham­pionships in Athens.

The US national soccer team, which flew out of Moscow on Sunday, was relieved to be watching the drama unfold on television in Innsbruck, Aus­tria, site of its next game on a European tour.

"I can't believe we made it out of Moscow," said Paul Caligiuri, a midfielder on the US team that played the Soviet Olympic soccer team Satur­day night in Moscow's Lenin

Stadium. "We were totally surprised

and shocked here to find out what had happened," Caligiuri said.

"We were in Red Square and the Kremlin taking photos and everything yesterday. "

Caligiuri bought a KGB hat on the streets of Moscow just 24 hours before security agents and soldiers took control of those streets.

"Who knows now what would happen if we were still there, " teammate Chris Hen­derson said.

While the Americans felt fortunate to be out of Moscow, some Soviet athletes also were hoping to leave their home­land.

The head of the Soviet track . and field team said he was

worned about his athletes being able to get to the World Cham-

pionships that begin this week­end in Tokyo.

Most of the Soviet team has been training in Vladivostok in the far eastern part of the country, but pole vaulter Ser- . gei Bubka and three others were still in Moscow.

"I have been in phone con­tact with Moscow and I under­stand the situation is very seri-0us' " coach Vadim Zeliche­nok said.

"I am afraid they will close the airports and the team will not be allowed to fly to Japan. It would be a pity if they could not come.

They are professionals who have trained hard all season for this event. "

Soviet athletes abroad wor­ried about loved ones back home.

Viktor Losev, captain of the Dynamo Moscow soccer team

currently playing exhibition games in Italy, said he talked to friends in Moscow and was assured they were safe.

"We are scheduled to return home by the end of the week and will see then what has happened," Losev said. "What can I say? Life continues."

In Toronto, Canada Cup chainnan Alan Eagleson said Canada has made plans to en­ter a second team in the six­nation tournament if the So­viet squad is unable to play, but said he is confident the Soviets will arrive as sched­uled on Saturday.

"Traditionally, sports has not been affected in these types of situations, " Eagleson said.

"However, as we learned from the Afghanistan invasion (which led to a US-led boycott of the 1980 Moscow Olym­pics), things can look in place

but not really be in place." Members of the Soviet na­

tional soccer team stayed away from the press in Valencia, Spain, and most Soviets at the championships in Stuttgart, Vienna and.Athms also avoided public comments.

One Soviet rowing trainer in Vienna, who asked that his name not be used, said the team had heard the news on radio and " we were very shocked."

"The situation is very un­clear, " he said. "It's difficult for us to say for sure what is going to happen, especially when we're here, hundreds of miles away."

In Athens, the head of the Soviet delegation said there were no problems with his 68 athletes - but said they will not attend any news conferences, even when they win medals. -Sapa-AP.

Paying for soccer success SUPPORTERS ofa British soccer club are being asked to pay for their team's success in a new entry fee scheme introduced this weekend.

Cardiff City's management has decided to charge fans according to the team's performance with a ticket costing three pounds at the turnstiles in last Saturday's opening match of the soccer season against Lincoln.

But if Cardiff City rise above seventh in the football league's fourth division, ticket costs will rise to four pounds. H the club makes the top three and stays there

prices will be increased to five pounds. Performance-related "you pay as we win" soccer is

the brainchild of Cardiff's new f'mancial controller, Rich Wright. An insurance deal with Lloyd's under­writers giving Cardiff's players a bonus of 40 000 pounds each if they win the fourth division champion­ship has also been arranged.

"Fans expect players to be superstars and provide City with success. City intend to pay them like super­stars for producing that success', Wright said. - Reuter.

SPORT codes like darts, squash and · gymnastics shoold be introduced at rural schools, said the Director of the National Sports Coun­cil (NSC) Wim LOtter.

InaninterviewwithNampa, he said that teachers could be involved in coaching school­children in these codes.

He said that their recent experience from Caprivi, where 16 schools were involved in a project, had convinced them that teachers have the abilities to teach schoolchildren sports like darts, squash and gymnas­tics.

He said that the NSC re­quested different sports organ­isations involved in those codes to provide them with coaches. He said that the NSC is plan­ning to introduce sports codes like darts, gymnastics, squash, volleyball, football and net­ball to rural schools in Owambo, Kavango, Damaraland, Na­maland and Hereroland East. . He said that his organisation

was working with the Ministry of Youth and Sports to organ­ise regional sport committees to deal with the implementa­tion of those sport codes.

Edinho makes fine start FORMER Brazilian mtemational Edinho made a winning start to his coaching career as Fluminese beat America/fres Rios 2-0 in the Rio de Janeiro championships. '

Goals by Renato and Sandro gave the Rio club a comfortable win 1n their first official match since the former World Cup defender took charge in July.

But the result was not enough to satisfy Edinho. " A lot of things will have to improve," he said.

Botafogo began the defence of the title by beating Americano 2-0 with goals by Valdeir and Dejair, but ;F1amengo and Vasco da Gama both suffered frights against unfancied opponenets.

Vasco won 2-1 at V olta Redonada after going behind to a third minute free-kick by Valtinho. Flamengo also had to come from behind to draw 1-1 with lowly Itaperuna.

, Only one race for Aouita MOROCCO 'S quadruple world record holder Said Aouida will compete only in the 1 500 metres at the World Athletics Cham­pion ships in Tokyo, team officials said.

Aouita, now fully recovered from an operation on his calf muscles last year, had been keeping everyone guessing about his intentions.

He holds world records for the 1 500, 2 000, 3 000 and 5 000 meters. Last month Aouita boasted he would be unbe,atable whichever event he chose.

, ' 'In Tokyo I will get a gold medal whatever distance I run," he said. " People who say I am finished and that they will beat me will have to run over by body to win." '

Durie move very expensive SCOTLAND striker Gordon Durie moved across London when he left Chelsea for Tottenham in a 2,2-million pound deal.

Spurs manager Terry Veoables got his man after eight hours of talla;, having failed with a 2-million pound bid two weeks ago.

Durie had wanted to return to Scotland and was especially keen to join champions Glasgow Rangers, the side he supported as a .boy, but Spurs were the only club to move in· for him. ~s switch to the FA Cup winners will at least give him ~

chance to play in the European Cup Winners' Cup, as he signed just in time to beat the trasnfer deadline.

"I'm delighted," said Venables. "It's something I've been working on for, some time. Purie is jUst the right player to strengthen our team and the ideal man to play alongside Gary Lineker."

Weekend of top soccer entertainment


NAMIJ.JIAN soccer fans will be treated to first class football when the vari9us regions - from the first divi­sions to the elite RossiDg Premier League - stage soccer

, tournaments countrywide during the long-weekend.

The Nomtsoub soccer offi­cials announced that NFP Rangers will host a tourna­~enl: this coming weekend with the Otjiwarongo sub-federation also confirming their soccer aqd netball competition.

Another soccer tournament is also on the cards for Kar­asburg fans when their . sub­fed~ration will be staging the biggest soccer tournament ever held in the region.

The most prestigious of all, of coUrse, will be the two quarter~final rounds I;)f the Windhoek Lager NFA Cup which will be played over two weekends.

A weekend of national soc­cer eIitertainment for sure - but the one million dollar question is - will ~~cer officials be able to keep the peace at the soccer stadiums.

'The violence .against -refe­rees, players and fans .has in-' creased to such a degree that the Namibian police have is­sued a stem warning and even vowed to stop the playin.g of soccer matches if it continues.

The police's action stems from last weekend's fracas during a Premier League match betWeen. Sarusas Orlando Pi-

, rates and Nasbua Black Af­rica, which led to the attack on referee Carlos Kambaekwa by Pirates supporters. , Only the quick intervention of the Namibian police saved the poor referee from the thugs who even pelted the police van (which took Kaembaekwa to safety) with stones.

was disrupted by Tigers sup­porters who invaded the play­ing field during the final be­tween Pirates and Young Ones.

And even Pirates officials condemned that action accus­ing Tigex:s of having no control over their supp<Xters. Last week, Pirates and Tigers, issued ajoint press statement in which both ciuQs vowed towstore the image of football.

The clubs also promised that no supporter, official or player of their respective clubs would ever be involved of anyuncon­stutitional action at soccer stadiuJ.llS.

And only last weekend a Robber Chanties official, Marthin, a former referee himself, vowed to beat the hell

out of referee Bafana Subeb who officiated during their

. match against Santos. The official's behaviour

encouraged the Robber Chan­ties players who told the refe­reehe was only " good for sh..t and that he deserved a punch on his mouth."

Yesterday Hendrick Chris­tiaan, an NFA executive com­mittee member, in his personal capacity, accused the police of dragging their feet on calls from the soccer authorities. "The _ Nanubian police are in posses­sion of the year's programme of cup and league fixtures. Up to now they have failed to send men to the stadiums.

• 'It is oJtJ that the police fail to react to the NFA's calls while they always have such a strong presence at rugby matches," Christiaan added.

Onistiaan. who also said that his association would issue an official statement in due course, said it was up to the clubs to

instil discipline in their mem­bers.

" The attitude of some play­ers and officials is so provoca­tive that the supporters are simply misled by these remarks during and after soccer matches, especially when their team loses.

"Soccer fans will, for in-. stance, never attack a referee if the side 's players and'officials show restraint. I must, how­ever, single out the players.

" Certain players (especially the so-called stars) display shocking behaviour when de­cisions are given against them by referees. I think that the situation would improve if players and officials would use self-discipline.

"The· players blame match officials for their own mis­takes and the officials tend to support them if their teams are not winning. This sort of be­haViour sparks off the support­ers who react in a most violent 'way, ., Christiaan stated.
