Samora Machel Constituency Councillor and City of Windhoek at odds about ablution facilities

Samora Machel’s Constituency Councillor has accused the City of Windhoek of lying about the provision of ablution facilities in informal settlements. Nestor Kalola says this has forced residents to construct their own toilets. Kalola said the constituency’s informal settlements house 80 000 inhabitants and the CoW provides communal water points only. He insists the councillor’s office wrote a letter in 2021 requesting basic services such as ablution facilities, more water points and electricity, but nothing has been provided yet.
