Renewed plea for 2% donation

19 July 2019 | Local News

A public notice signed by secretary to the cabinet George Simataa, dated for Thursday last week, makes a “humble appeal to all Namibians to donate up to 2% of their annual basic salary. This request is not only applicable to those who earn a salary but to everyone who earns an income and is willing to donate”.
The monies are set to be used for the 2019/20 drought relief programme.
The plea follows the 6 May declaration of the drought as a national disaster by President Hage Geingob.
According to Simataa, it is emphasised that the donation is “voluntary” and must be “made in the spirit of goodwill and patriotism”.
An official form has been created to this end and a Standard Bank account opened by Treasury for the contributions made.
The form, available on all organisation, agencies and ministries’ websites, requires all the particulars, including identity number and workplace details and provides different payment options including single deductions or multiple deductions in equal instalments. Should a donor want to make a direct contribution to the bank account, the details of which are enclosed in Simataa’s public notice, both the proof of payment and the consent form must be delivered to the executive director, I-Ben Nashandi, in the prime minister’s office.
Simataa says this is for compliance with the State Finance Act in terms of donations to the state.
