RUNDU, 07 DEC (NAMPA) – The Inspector General of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol), Lieutenant General Sebastian Ndeitunga on Thursday officially inaugurated new police barracks and new holding cells here.
The accommodation facilities, comprising of 32 rooms of which 16 are for male police officers and 16 for female officers were constructed at Kavango Motel in Rundu.
The inauguration also included four new holding cells at the Rundu Police station. All the facilities were constructed at a tune of more than N.dollars 39 million.
During the inauguration, Ndeitunga said housing provision for NamPol remains a challenging task not only in the Kavango East Region, but countrywide.
He said the inauguration marks another achievement in the history of policing and it still remains his mission to improve the living standard of the men and women in uniform.
“We appreciate our government’s commitment to addressing the housing needs of our members,” said Ndeitunga.
The NamPol chief added he is certain that the police officers deployed in the region to deliver police services, who have been struggling to find housing, will be accommodated in the new barracks and flats.
The construction of the holding cells started in May 2015 while the construction of the flats and barracks started in July the same year and were only completed on 22 November this year.
Kavango East Regional Governor, Samuel Mbambo in his welcoming remarks, commended Ndeitunga for his efforts and abilities that led a team to achieve such an achievement.
“I sincerely hope and trust that you and your team will uphold a sustainable, maintenance culture that will keep these elephants as befitting and attractive as possible,” said the governor referring to the new facilities.
