Rössing Uranium commits to service Erongo Police fleet to combat crime

Rössing Uranium made a donation of N$750,000 to the Namibian Police in the Erongo Region. The funds will be used to service and maintain police vehicles in the towns of Swakopmund, Walvis Bay, and Arandis, to support police efforts in combating crime.

The donation was announced by Rössing Uranium’s Edwin Tjiriange, General Manager for Asset Management and Projects at the mine’s corporate office in Swakopmund. Tjiriange highlighted that Rössing has for the past two years assisted the Police with the same donation and has this year moved to solidify the agreement for a three-year term starting in 2024. This translates to N$250 000 per annum stretching until 2026.

“These funds will be utilised for maintenance, (servicing, mechanical repairs and upkeeping), of 8 NamPol vehicles from Arandis, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, as identified and selected by the office of the Regional Commander,” said Tjiriange.

Erongo NamPol Regional Commander, Commissioner Nikolaus Kupembona applauded Rössing for the donation saying the Police is now in a better position to expedite its mandate. “Police officers rely on the vehicles to respond promptly to emergency situations and to transport them safely to various locations. Thus, ensuring that these vehicles are in good working condition helps to minimise the risk of accidents or breakdowns that could compromise officer’s safety,” said Kupembona.
