City of Windhoek : ZERO Tolerance on Perpetrators
“The construction sector is a huge employer in Windhoek, and it can lead to an economic downturn in the industry and a huge loss of jobs in construction, so we are very concerned about that,” said the Construction Industries Federation’s (CIF) Consulting General Manager Bärbel Kirchner, responding to a question on the water crisis situation facing Windhoek in particular.
Last week, the City of Windhoek (CoW) released its Zero Tolerance Policy on water wastage as part of awareness creation on the water crisis being experienced in the central area. Lydia Amutenya Public Relations Officer at the Department of The Chief Executive Officer at CoW, said as long as the consumption level continue to surpass the level of water in dams then we have a serious and critical situation. “Since 2013 we have started educating the public about the water crisis that is likely to affect Windhoek and already now as we speak, the crisis is here,” said Amutenya.
