ONDANGWA, 21 SEP (NAMPA) – Ondangwa Deputy Mayor, Saima Namukwambi has called on all residents of the town to be environmental ambassadors within their respective communities.
Namukwambi made the call whilst addressing the residents who participated in the town’s annual cleaning campaign on Friday.
“Environmental ambassadors are volunteers who protect Mother Nature by doing anything they can to prevent further environmental degradation,” the deputy mayor said.
She encouraged the residents to plant trees, educate the public and hold cleaning exercises from time to time if protection of the nature and prevention of environmental degradation is to be realised.
According to her, environmental ambassadors can be everyone including industries, as they also have a moral responsibility to protect the natural surroundings in which they do business.
Namukwambi assured that Ondangwa Town Council, together with all stakeholders, will always strive to keep the town clean to hold on its title as the town of the year in terms of tidiness.
Ondangwa Mayor, Paavo Amwele, kick-started the cleaning campaign at the town on Monday, when he donated his own trucks and employees to be part of the cleaning.
