WINDHOEK, 23 MAY – Vice President Nangolo Mbumba on Wednesday led an early clean-up of the old State House premises, ahead of the national clean-up campaign slated for Friday.
The campaign involved deputy ministers under the Office of the Vice President – namely for Disability Affairs, Alexia Manombe-Ncube; Veterans’ Affairs, Hilma Nikanor; Marginalised People, Royal /Ui/o/oo; and other staff members.
The clean-up started with a march from Kenya House to the Old State House in Robert Mugabe Avenue.
Mbumba addressed the staff, emphasising the importance of cleaning and saying initiatives such as this should be carried out as often as possible.
“I think if we can, from time-to-time do this, maybe once a month, we can keep our country clean. We do not need diseases,” he said.
On his part, /Ui/o/oo encouraged members of the marginalised communities to join the president’s call to take part in the national clean-up.
Mbumba will be leading the main clean-up in Khorixas along with Kunene Governor Marius Sheya, while /Ui/o/oo will be joining President Hage Geingob in Windhoek on Friday.
The president will start the clean-up in the Samora Machel Constituency at 07h00.
