WINDHOEK, 25 OCT (NAMPA) – The DTA of Namibia has promised to “bring Windhoek back to its residents” by lowering the prices of electricity and water.
The party’s president, McHenry Venaani said this at the party’s rally held at the UN Plaza in Katutura on Thursday.
Venaani said his party will do this by availing “clean” leadership for the Local Authority election which the party will promote in the next few weeks leading up to the Regional Council and Local Authority Elections.
He said the party will bring Windhoek back to its residence, and not “to certain individuals that have taken Windhoek for their own”.
Venaani said exorbitant house and land prices, as well as water and electricity rates have made Windhoek one of the most expensive cities in the world.
He further said that Windhoek is being governed by the “corrupt elite that have been allocating land to their children and mayors dishing out land left, right and centre” and who have been allocating land to themselves.
Various political parties are busy conducting campaigns countrywide for the Regional Council and Local Authority elections slated for 27 November.
Polling stations will open countrywide at 07h00 and close at 21h00.
The counting of ballots starts immediately after, and the results are expected to be posted at all constituency offices as soon as it is available.
