The year of “Kubus”

The year 1984 will go down in the history for dozens of Walvis Bay residents (and residents across Namibia and South Africa for that matter) as the year of the kubus collapse!
Can you recall the “vrotmelk” scheme, or better known as the “Kubus” project. The financial losses many suffered when the scheme collapsed? Namib Times 16 October 1984.
Note: On our 60th anniversary the only positives we can take from Kubus are: the sale of tumbler glasses must have been good during Kubus’ life span. After the collapse, many house-holds had an oversupply of tumbler glasses for decades to come.
