Ugandan delegation happy with trip to Namibia


A delegation from Uganda that was in the country this week for benchmarking says all their expectations were met in learning from Namibia's road infrastructure.

Speaking during the feedback meeting, Ugandan Minister of Works and Transport Ecweru Francis said they came to Namibia to learn because Namibia occupies a very impressive position on road networks, both at the continental and global levels.

Capricorn Eagles beat Uganda.


The Capricorn Eagles won the toss and chose to bat first but Uganda had other ideas as they kept taking wickets. At one point, the Namibian team members found themselves four wickets down for 47 runs.

Ugandan bowlers continued taking more wickets and restricted Namibia from putting up decent partnerships.

It was a day to forget for the Capricorn Eagles players as their batting did not go according to plan.

And as Uganda kept picking holes in the Capricorn Eagles' batting more wickets fell to leave the host at 94 all out.

Africa's urban population is anticipated to double over the next 25 years.

These findings were revealed by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Namibia at the launch of the Just City Namibia project.

The project aims to stimulate socio-political discussions that are sensitive to the Namibian context and focus on political processes to improve the situation of urban dwellers in times of increasing rural-to-urban migration.
