President Geingob bows his head to a national clean up campaign

President Hage Geingob has set aside the 1st of May 2018 as a national clean-up campaign day to get rid of the dirt across the country, statehouse confirmed yesterday in a written statement sent to the media.

The president indicated that the massive campaign should do away with the unhealthy living environments the dirt was causing. 

“Calling on all Namibians to join the clean-up effort on 1 May, the president expressed the wish that he would like to see the capital, Windhoek, reclaim its status as the cleanest city in Africa. President Geingob emphasized the importance of a clean environment for a healthier nation,” statehouse said. 

Calls for a clean up campaign recently hit the internet with some sections of society advocating for the use of Independence celebrations funds for such an initiative.

While the calls have been regarded as wise, some however argued that such an undertaking should not undermine the Independence celebrations scheduled to take place in Tsumeb.
