Swakopmund owes NamWater N$87m

Municipality not in the position to repay this debt…

The Swakopmund Municipality owes the national water utility Namwater N$74 million. This shocking news was revealed by Swakopmund Council member Wilfried Groenewald who also said that Namwater is requesting the municipality to settle their debts, but the municipality is not in a position to pay.
Groenewald made these remarks during a consultative meeting with the Minister of Agriculture Water, and Forestry Mr John Mutorwa yesterday in the coastal town. Councillor Kleopas Ngwena also commented on the debts owed to Namwater saying that the water prices are raised regularly and there “is nothing the council can do” as they have no say in the matter.
Commenting on the same issue Mutorwa said Namwater only acts according to laws which have been implemented and that this is done to recover costs.
“Namwater has every right to demand for their debts to be paid in full,” Mutorwa said.
