KAMANJAB: Residents of Kamanjab in the Kunene Region can look forward to a brand new, modern sports stadium here as construction is set to commence on such a structure soon.
The community is currently forced to make use of two fields for sports activities – one situated near the community hall here which is only identifiable by two iron poles; while the other is little more than a gravel field next to the Kamanjab Combined School.
Acting Kamanjab Village Council clerk Games Namaseb told Nampa in an interview on Tuesday that construction will commence on a N.dollars 900 000 stadium in October this year.
The stadium will be constructed next to the Kamanjab Combined School, about 300 metres east of the Kamanjab Village Council offices.
Funding for the stadium was sourced from the German Special Initiative Programme.
KEETMANSHOOP; Two institutions taking care of the elderly, vulnerable children and people living with HIV/AIDS in Keetmanshoop received donations of three springbok carcasses each on Wednesday.
They are Mother’s Voice, a non-profit Catholic Aids Action organisation that runs a soup kitchen for about 50 people living with the HIV/AIDS as well as destitute and vulnerable children, and //Na-Welsyn Old Age Home run by individuals who take care of 10 elderly people.
The meat was donated by the Keetmanshoop Urban Constituency Office, and was handed over by Chief Control Officer (CCO) of that constituency office Bennie Diergaardt.
Diergaardt said his office found it fit to give to the needy, and explained that it is part of their social responsibility towards the community.
The springbok were hunted in August this year by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism in the communal area of Aus on a hunting permit issued to the Karas Regional Council (KRC).
