WE REGIONAL NEWS

26 November 2018 | Local News

Windhoek Express visited Gobabis earlier this week and one of the touching stories shared from there, is of the Animal Rescue organisation that not only focuses on sterilisation, but also the well-being of pets in the town.

From Okahandja comes the report of some residents that have been overcharged for municipal services - in some cases with as much as 500%. WE spoke to a resident whose water access has been cut off as a result of the high rates.

Keeping with water, the City of Windhoek has warned residents that their consumption has been far too high, which holds dire consequences for the City’s water resources. The municipality last week reported that the weekly water consumption for the period 5 to 12 November is the highest yet, standing at 9.3% more than is allowable.

What’s on this week:

Thursday 29 November

• 17:00 Christmas Late Night Shopping at the Auas Valley Shopping Mall until 20:00.
