Joint Walvis Bay Residents Association ready for elections

Walvis Bay has a resident’s association again. The Association is officially known as the Joint Walvis Bay Residents Association (JWBRA) and will participate in the local authority elections during November this year.

The Joint Walvis Bay Residents Association is registered at the Electoral Commission of Namibia and is currently in the process to list candidates who will be representing the Association’s members on the Walvis Bay Town Council, based on the number of seats it can obtain in the upcoming elections.
“This is not a political party. The Joint Walvis Bay Residents Association is a non-political movement which wants Walvis Bay’s municipal affairs managed on a non-political, service-orientated manner.
“Our aim is for: a clean administration of Walvis Bay; good service delivery by all departments of the municipality of Walvis Bay, prompt addressing of all complaints of poor service delivery, clean streets, pavements, parks and public spaces, strict adherence to all building regulations, control over dumping of building rubble and materials on pavements, proper control over the sale of erven and transfer thereof, proper street- and pavement maintenance programs, proper traffic control and the ongoing maintenance of public infrastructure.
The Joint Walvis Bay Residents Association will field a total of fifteen candidates. This list will be handed in at the Electoral Commission of Namibia on or before the deadline of 15 October. Out of these fifteen candidates, ten will be available to fill seats on the Walvis Bay Town Council. The candidates will be fielded into the following manner: Walvis Bay proper (3 candidates); Narraville (2 candidates); Kuisebmond (4 candidates) and Langstrand/Dolphin Park (1 candidate).
“If you are a registered voter, and you live in any of Walvis Bay’s suburbs, including the Langstrand/Dolphin Park/Afrodite Beach cluster – make sure to cast your vote for the Joint Walvis Bay Residents Association.
Let us return accountability, a culture of service to the people and an effective local authority to Walvis Bay.
