OPM appeals to OMAs to contribute N$20 000 for clean-up

The Office of the Prime Minister has appealed to ministries and agencies (OMAs) to contribute N$20 000 towards the national clean-up campaign scheduled for next week week on the 25th. 

They were requested to deposit the contributions by yesterday into a national cleaning campaign business account at FNB. 

Speaking to The Villager, Secretary to cabinet, George Simataa said that due to financial constraints he also expects “peace loving and patriotic citizens to contribute to this national endeavor.” 

“The purpose of the clean up campaign is to make our country clean and enhance the quality of the health of our people. The letter you referred to came from my office informing all government votes to contribute to the logistics such as hand gloves, plastic bags, water and other related materials. This is a national call and therefore ministries are required to contribute.” 

"However, it is worth noting that indeed many patriotic and environmental conscious citizens have risen to the occasion and continue rendering their assistance. We therefore appeal to the Villager Newspaper to also favorably respond to the national call,” he said. 

However, Affirmative Repositioning’s (AR) Job Amupanda took to social media lambasting the opening of the account  as a scheme to redirect funds. 

“Government money from Hospitals and Schools have been redirected to a new bank account at FNB. As we speak, that unplanned private (non-governmental) account is full of millions. See for yourself! Activists and Officials Keep Up the Good Work!” he said.
