WALVIS BAY, 20 AUG (NAMPA) - The Erongo Regional Governor Cleophas Mutjavikua on Wednesday officially opened the Walvis Bay Rural Constituency office in the Tutaleni settlement.
He did so on behalf of the Minister of Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development (MRLGHRD), Retired Major-General Charles Namoloh.
The office was constructed by the MRLGHRD at a cost of N.dollars 2 million.
The site handover was done on 24 April 2009, and the project was completed in March 2010.
Before the completion of the office, constituency councillor John Nangolo and his staff rented office space from the Walvis Bay Municipality.
In his speech delivered at the occasion, Namoloh said the opening of the office serves as tangible evidence of Government’s commitment to decentralise services to the people.
“My ministry, in consultation with the National Planning Commission (NPC), embarked upon building constituency offices in each and every region of this country as part of Government’s policy of decentralisation and bringing services closer to people,” said the minister.
Namoloh said rendering services to public and private institutions is founded on three important components, namely human resources, financial resources, and physical resources.
He elaborated that capable and experienced human resources, sufficient financial resources, proper and appropriate physical resources are necessities in rendering efficient and satisfactory service to customers.
“This office has financially supported a variety of projects since its inception in 2002. These are the Kufamosha Drama Group, Omuva Tukuatha Support Groups, HMSA Car Wash, Kuisebmond Laundry and Catering Services, Utuseb Aution Kraals,” announced the minister.
Immediately after the launch, the governor and a delegation of local authorities’ councillors and staff of the Erongo Regional Council proceeded to Otjimbingwe, some 60 kilometers south of Karibib, to inaugurate the new settlement office there.
On Thursday, Mutjavikua will open the settlement office of Okombahe, situated some 60 kilometers west of Omaruru.
