Sakaria Gumede Kandenge started this petition to Windhoek City Council

It's very clear, Windhoek Municipality is Challenged to deliver services to All the residents, and it is beyond doubt that Windhoek Municipality alone cannot accomplish all the tasks that requires national efforts,but as the custodian of the budget allocated and approval authority , the Council needs to spear head the process of service delivery which in our view is not at a point of crisis yet.

We identified following service delivery challenges as something that needs serious and quick attention:

1.Upgrading of All MAJOR informal trading Centers

-Namibia is very serious about business and Windhoek is the capital ,so all MAJOR informal trading centers must be upgraded as soon as possible.

2.Accelerating  Servicing of Land in Informal settlements

-Servicing of Land in Windhoek's informal settlement is extremely slow and unrealistic in our view because we know Windhoek Municipality is in possession of all recourses required to do that.

3. Accelerate Safety Security measures

-It is partly the Municipality's Mandate to ensure safety and security of residents but this is also very slow at being implemented.

Here is our recommendations on demand!!

1.We recommend and demand that all informal trading centers with at least more than 15 business people around ,should be upgraded to Bitumen standards.

This is very important for our Economy because informal traders directly support local producers in farming etc...

2.We recommend and demand that the Municipality must halt all proposed and newly established Housing Schemes in informal settlements and rather negotiate with and/or instruct the developers to direct the funds made available towards the Mass servicing of Land as far as possible.

3.We demand and recommend that the City council should obtain all safety and security complains reports in details from the relevant security authorities and work on that...Municipality must implement the security protocols based on residents recommendations.

NB!! Any other Major challenge and proposal not included in this petition but in the interest of city development and country at large ,such as Environmental sustainable development in the city is also regarded as valid and included in this petition.

Further Comments:

We trust that the municipality can start to work on our recommendation and respond to our petition at least within 35 Working days from the day of submission of this petition (02/07/2020)

Should the City Council fail to respond to our recommendations and demand within that time frame, we will suspect that  the municipality is either unable or unwilling to meet our demands 

Thank You!
