Rudi Bowe

Walvis Bay Mayor His Worship Trevino Forbes recently paid a courtesy call on Windhoek Mayor Dr Job S Amu-panda. Dr Amupanda told Cllr Forbes that the City has made a decision to re-join the Association of Local Authorities in Namibia (ALAN) in order to work collectively with other local authorities in the country. He said the City will pay its membership to the Association this month in order to activate its membership.

The City of Windhoek and the Town of Walvis Bay signed an Agreement of Co-operation in 2002 but has expired in 2007. Dr Amupanda has therefore called on the two parties to commit themselves to renewing this agreement.
Dr Amupanda also briefed his counterpart on the recently approved Windhoek Economic Recovery Initiative #WERI which calls for brilliant ideas that will stimulate the City’s economy and create employment. The City is in the process of drafting the expression of interest for the#WERI.
Mayor Forbes said that Walvis Bay Municipality also has a similar initiative whereby they hold informal Tuesday meetings where residents are called to present their ideas and the Council choose the best ideas for implementation.
Dr Amupanda said “In His Worship Mayor Trevino Forbes the people of Walvis Bay have a servant leader with a brilliant mind and one of the leaders our country needs to move forward.”
“With him as mayor the future of the Namibian harbour town will be bright” Dr Amupanda concluded.
