The DTA of Namibia has condemned any marine phosphate mining activities in Namibia.

Opposition party Member of Parliament (MP) Jennifer van den Heever in a media statement issued on Monday said the party is against any attempts by Government to issue a permit for such mining.

Van den Heever said many countries such as Australia and South Africa have investigated the possibility of venturing into marine phosphate mining and on each occasion, research has found that the risks to sea life are simply too great.

The Head of State made the statement at the intake of 42 cadets into the NDF here on Friday.

Only four are women.

“I am sure that if we all make a concerted effort in motivating and encouraging female soldiers, we will give more young women the confidence to join the army, navy and air force,” Geingob said.

He challenged more women to join the NDF and urged those already in the force to aim as high as possible, and assume key positions and command appointments.
