REHOBOTH, 08 MAY (NAMPA) The Hardap Regional Council under the auspices of the Office of the Hardap Governor on Monday held a clean-up campaign in Maltahöhe.
The campaign held under the banner Road to Rehoboth attracted over 400 people and forms part of the nationwide mass clean-up campaign slated for 25 May.
President Hage Geingob declared 25 May as the national clean-up campaign day during his State of the Nation Address in April.
In an interview with Nampa on Monday, Hardap Regional Governor, Esme Sophia Isaack said the regional clean-up campaign serves as motivation and a mobilisation drive for the residents of the region to be part of the mass nationwide clean-up campaign.
As we all know our President Hage Geingob suggested 25 May as the nationwide clean-up campaign day and as residents of Hardap we elected a technical committee to mobilise the residents to be part of the campaign, Isaack noted.
She said judging from the turnout in Maltahöhe, she has no doubt that the main event will be a huge success.
The campaign in Hardap started on Monday at Maltahöhe, followed by Gibeon (09 May), Kriess (11 May), Gochas (14 May), Aranos (15 May), Stampriet (17 May), Hoachanas (18 May), Klein-Aub (19 May), Mariental (21 May), Kalkrand on 23 May, ending with Rehoboth on 25 May.
Isaack thanked the community members and other stakeholders that participated in the Maltahöhe operation, while lashing out at local business owners for not assisting the event, saying they should plough back in the community as part of their social responsibility.
Businesses should be part of these types of events and meet the regional council half way in their operations. Only then can we make our region a conducive environment for all, she concluded.
