KEETMANSHOOP: Karasburg Constituency councillor Paulus Ephraim is annoyed with truck drivers driving and parking in the Noordoewer settlement’s main street.
Noordoewer is situated about 300 kilometres south of Keetmanshoop along the Orange River.
Speaking to Nampa in a telephonic interview today, Ephraim said the trucks drive on the settlement’s only tarred road in Extension 2, which is not fit for heavy-duty traffic.
He thus requested these drivers to stop the practice forthwith, explaining that the road is now damaged due to the heavy trucks, furthermore charging that the trucks are parked anywhere near houses in the settlement and also destroy erven markings.
Ephraim also registered his disappointment with the truck drivers’ tendency of drinking with school girls and boys, saying it is not good and should be stopped immediately.
He threatened to take the contact details of the trucks, and call their bosses to report such bad behaviour.
