NKURENKURU – The Nkurenkuru town council, which at the moment has no street named, has resolved to give numbers to the town’s streets to make directions and movements easier.
CEO Petrus Sindimba this week said the difficulty of visitors locating a place in the town will soon be a thing of the past.
“For now, we are not naming the streets, but we are just numbering them, for example First road, Second road, etc. In future, we can rename them accordingly, but for now we just want to make life easier for our visitors and residents to know where to locate others and certain places. It is just for people to have directions,’’ he noted.
Sindimba also told New Era that they are finalising the installation of their last
planned borehole to provide their own water at every corner of the town.
“Once the borehole is completed, we will have about eight boreholes to cater for our town’s needs. We are supplying our own water, and we will no longer need to be supplied by NamWater anywhere,” he enthused.
Council also started with upgrading an 800-metre stretch of road from gravel to bitumen standard to further improve road conditions in the town. “We are busy with constructing a new open market which is along a main road, just across Shoprite, to provide a platform for some of our street vendors to sell their products safely and in a better and conducive environment,’’ the CEO added. Sindimba reiterated that as a council, their focus is to bring efficient services to residents. Since Nkurenkuru was proclaimed a town in 2006, the council continues to upgrade services such as sewerage, roads, water and electricity networks in most parts here.
“Our expo hall is also nearing completion, and we will be using it during the next
expo, which is slated for next year.
We need to respond to the demands. At the moment, there are also housing projects at the town. Many businesses have been established, including private health facilities and government offices, to provide services. We have a new primary healthcare clinic, private schools, and we have tertiary training institutions like IUM and the Welwitchia Health Training Centre. We are moving ahead,” he continued.
