They marched from the Gobabis Municipality head office up to the Epako highway, encouraging fellow residents to take part in the event and distributing refuse bags.
Senior Public Relations Officer at the Omaheke Regional Council, Tauno Iileka told Nampa on Thursday council has received cleaning materials from the government and private sponsors for the campaign.
“Companies such as Shoprite and Spar will also sponsor manpower by availing some of their employees to part take in the cleaning campaign,” Iileka added.
