TSUMEB: The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Oshikoto Region yesterday launched a campaign aimed at educating schoolchildren against vandalism, gangsterism and alcohol abuse.
Oshikoto Regional Police Commander, Commissioner Anne-Marie Nainda launched the campaign at the Tsumeb Senior Secondary School yesterday morning.
Commissioner Nainda said it is very important that learners also get to know the consequences they might face if one is caught involved in crimes like possession of dangerous weapons, vandalism of State assets or public indecency.
She told Nampa in an interview after the official launch and her presentation to the learners that her office receives numerous complaints of public disorder committed by secondary school learners here.
She also discouraged teenage pregnancy as well as abortion.
The Oshakati Town Council will embark upon special registration and issuing of fitness certificates to all businesses operating at the town as from Monday to Friday next week.
The town’s corporate communications officer, Jackson Muma, said this in a media statement here yesterday.
Muma stated that the council has noticed that some businesspeople are conducting business in town without valid registration/fitness certificates, contrary to regulations related to business operations in town.
During the campaign, council will establish mobile registration centres to cater for all types of businesses operating in Oshakati.
These are the main Oshakati Open Market, Uupindi informal market, Tafel House market, Okandjengedi informal market, Waapandula Noyaka (behind Yetu Shopping Centre), and the Namibia Development Corporation (NDC) industrial area.
Muma explained that payments for business registration and fitness certificates will depend on the size of each business.
