Nored lights up Ndama suburb
12 July 2019 | Cultural
Rundu is among the towns that are dangerous at night, as those walking around after sunset can easily become the victims of the criminals who hide in the narrow, dark streets of the riverside town.
Namibian Sun reported last week how Rundu is faced with poor visibility at night, the result of a lack of lighting in its main streets.
Mbambo thanked Nored for constructing the two high-mast lights at Ndama extension two and three, through its corporate social responsibility programme. “I would like to commend Nored, who have once again demonstrated they are a dependable development partner, for this laudable illustration of goodwill, by ploughing back into this community,” Mbambo said yesterday during the commissioning of the high-mast lights. The installations will provide much-needed aerial lighting to the two extensions to improve visibility and reduce the crime.
Mbambo added the socio-economic conditions of the Ndama residents have now been improved drastically.
Apart from the construction of the two high-mast lights, Nored also installed aerial bundled cable (ABC) lines at a total cost of N$1.8 million.
Nored CEO Fillemon Nakashole said the power distribution company will continue to plough back into the communities it operates in.
“The electrification of these two extensions firmly sits under the 'community pillar' of our community social responsibility strategy, which is aimed at making positive contributions to the communities within our operations, through the provision of access to electricity and by supporting other worthy causes,” Nakashole said.
He also used the opportunity to inform the public about various projects Nored has embarked on in the recent years that positively affects the lives of thousands of people living in Kavango East and other regions.
