MTC restores services in Swakopmund


MTC has announced that a power failure at the coastal town of Swakopmund that damaged one of the fiber ducts has been restored.

The power failure affected the West African Undersea Cable services, resulting in voice and data services being affected in the entire Erongo Region since Sunday.

This failure, unfortunately, also affected data in the entire country with customers experiencing slow data speeds due to the alternative routes being congested, says the mobile service provider.

Erongo Business and Tourism Expo underway at Walvis Bay


The COVID-19 pandemic has devasted Namibia's tourism industry as arrivals fell sharply and other tourist activities closed down.

This was said by Erongo Region Governor Neville Andre during the opening of the 14th edition of the Erongo Business and Tourism Expo at Walvis Bay.

Tourism is one of the sectors hardest hit by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Andre says this expo aims to rally exhibitors and businesses to adapt to ways of fast recovery by identifying future disruptors and crafting and implementing change in strategies.
