Drought aid Bonus

Rudi Bowe

The official opening on Friday of the new container terminal on reclaimed land in the port of Walvis Bay saw to an unexpected bonus. The two main stake-holders in this massive construction undertaking, The Namibian Ports Authority (Namport) and China Harbour Engineering Company (CH-EC) donated a total of N$2 million to the National Emergency Disaster Fund. The money is earmarked solely for drought aid.

The Acting chief executive officer of Namport, Kavin Harry, and the Vice president of CHEC, Li Yi, each handed their N$1 million ceremonial cheques to President Hage Geingob on Friday at the launch ceremony of the new container terminal.
Harry explained Namport sourced the funds from the Namport Social Investment Fund. President Geingob welcomed the donations and re-iterated every person in Namibia should join hands and pull in the same direction to counter the drought that has virtually every part of the country in its ugly grip.
The President called on other companies in Namibia to follow the example set by Namport and CHEC.
