Namibia Consumer Trust has raised questions over the safety standards of the Katutura public swimming pool, alleging that its water quality falls short of World Health Organisation’s recommended levels for Staphylococcus & Pseudomonas. The Namibia press agency quotes NCT Executive Director, Michael Gaweseb, as saying that city officials do not educate visitors about safety, the need for personal hygiene, and not to introduce human excrement that can pose a danger to other swimmers through accidental inhalation. However the City of Windhoek’s Corporate Communications, Marketing and Public Participation Manager, Harold Akwenye said the city’s swimming pool’s water standards are within the health and safety standards and that they have adopted international processes of monitoring water at public swimming pools on a daily basis.
