Elias !Kharuxab says although his constituency is one of the vastest and poorest in the region, it has the potential of becoming the bread basket of the region if its resources are fully and well utilised. !Kharuxab made these remarks when he delivered his state of constituency address earlier this month at Aroab. He said that the constituency is endowed with natural resources that have amongst other things presented opportunities for small scale farming and irrigation schemes, which have the potential of creating more job opportunities and equally feed the region and beyond. Having a predominantly rural set up, Keetmanshoop Rural Constituency is faced with the challenge of untarred roads that present a high accident risk. “It is the wish of this constituency that the Keetmanshoop-Aroad-Klein Manasse road will be given preference as this is a busy road utilised by heavy trucks transporting goods and services to and from the Republic of South Africa,” said !Kharuxab. !Kharuxab commended the village councils within his constituency for the provision of essential services to the residents. At Aroab Village Council, a road of 8.5km road was tarred, to the tune of N.5 million; 70 low cost residential and one business plot were successfully sold and the construction of a new sports ground is currently underway. Furthermore, according to !Kharuxab, the village council has started with the establishment of a new extension at Oosterheim, where about 200 low cost housing will be constructed. An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is currently being conducted. Koes Village Council managed to successfully launch its five year strategic plan, amid budgetary challenges. !Kharuxab also commended the Namibian Police for their swift response to crime in the constituency and region at large, specifically referring to the farm murder incident of the elderly couple, and urged community members to cooperate with the police to bring culprits to book. “It is with high priority that I stress unity among our community members so that we tackle these social issues such as the excessive abuse of drugs and alcohol and an alarming rate of school dropouts in the constituency coupled by lack of parental guidance and the involvement to discipline these teenagers at home,” expressed !Kharuxab. At the same occasion, a number of community members were given business start-up items, courtesy of the Office of the Governor. Special Advisor to the Regional Govenor, Hon.

Local businessman donates sanitary pads to schools While some are only focused profits and s e l f - e n r i c h m e n t , Henry Jongwe, a local businessman, is focused on ploughing back into his community in any form possible. During the Keetmanshoop Rural Constituency address earlier this month, Jongwe, through his company – Henimma Investments – donated 1119 sanitary pads to schools within the constituency. Jongwe said that although doing business is not easy these days, given the economic hardship the country finds itself in, he can still contribute to the betterment of children in rural areas. “I behold the view that it is every Namibian child’s right to be educated, and to see or hear about a child that has given up on her school because of the lack of items such as sanitary pads is heart-breaking. The President’s Harambee Prosperity Plan is clear on inclusivity. No one should be left out in education, and we will be failing that motto of the President if children in the rural areas are to leave school for lack of daily items such as sanitary pads,” said Jongwe. The donation was valued at N 141.15, and was received by !Garieb Education Circuit Inspector, Jesmine Magerman, who could not contain her gratitude.
