KEETMANSHOOP, 13 DEC (NAMPA) – Keetmanshoop Urban Constituency Councillor and Deputy Minister of Veterans Affairs, Hilma Nicanor, shared her disappointment at the appearance of the southern capital.
Speaking during a lunch organised by her office for senior citizens in Tseiblaagte on Saturday, Nicanor said Keetmanshoop was turning into a dirty place.
“This is not the clean town I used to know; it saddens me to see heaps of filth, plastic and paper everywhere and sewerage overflowing,” the politician said.
“It makes me feel really bad to see that while the town is growing and we are developing, we seem to go backwards in maintaining our town,” she said.
Nicanor urged the elderly to lobby all the relevant authorities including the municipality and political leadership to ensure the town is kept clean.
Over 300 elderly citizens people were treated to lunch at the J. A. Nel Secondary School hostel in Tseiblaagte, courtesy of the Keetmanshoop Urban Constituency office on Saturday.
After the meal, the guests received small parcels of maize meal, tea, sugar and grapes. The grapes were a donation from Naute Dam outside Keetmanshoop, where government and a company from Abu Dhabi co-produce grapes and dates for export.
