Winter time set to bite the dust
22 February 2017 | Local News
Home Affairs minister Pendukeni Iivula-Ithana today presented the Namibian Time Bill in the National Assembly, which will in all probability see the country only having one seasonal time. According to the minister, Cabinet has already resolved to have a single time through all the seasons of the year. During consultations, Iivula-Ithana announced that 3 096 people wanted only summer time, while 304 wanted both summer and winter time. If approved by the National Assembly, the Namibian Time Bill will repeal the Namibian Time Act of 1994, which regulates winter and summer time. The minister also greatly emphasised that it is imperative to ensure that the law ending winter time commences this year.
