30 December 2014 | Local News
The owner of Namib Industrial Group, Regto Ndemufayo David, has handed over reflective vests, torches and refreshments worth N$5 000 to officers manning the police checkpoint between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund.
Deputy Commissioner Andreas Nelumbu received the donation on behalf of the Nampol Erongo Festive Season Road Safety Campaign and thanked David for the gesture.
“This donation will definitely enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of members doing duty in harsh conditions. Public roads belong to all and those using them should be alert, drive considerately and avoid irresponsible driving,” he said.
David said he made the donation to support and thank police officers for their efforts to ensure road safety.
“This sponsorship is not only aimed at supporting the very important activities of the law-enforcement officers stationed at the roadblock during this hectic festive season, but also to say thank you to our men and women in uniform for the very important work they perform to ensure citizens travel safely. This serves to acknowledge the good work you are doing and to encourage you to keep on doing so and prevent road accidents from robbing Namibia of innovative young minds,” he said.
Namib Industrial Group is a Namibian company that was recently awarded the DBN Business Innovation Award 2014 for its Go Safe ‘Eenda Nawa’ road accident mobile SMS cover subsidiary company, which will be launched in 2015.
