His Excellency Dr. Hage Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia, established the National Cleanup Campaign in 2018. All Namibians were called to participate in the spirit of volunteerism to ensure a clean and healthy environment. The National Cleanup took place on Saturday 21 September 2019. The theme for this year in Walvis Bay was “let’s change our attitude”. Therefore, we encouraged participants to clean right where they were. Residents cleaned up their surrounding and community areas such as their neighbourhoods, places of work and schools. Taking ownership of cleaning our areas assist in eradicating the misconception that littering creates jobs for the Municipality and this mind set needs to be done away with. Adopting a new culture of cleanliness that impacts our health and environment needs to be practised.
Our coastal schools outdid themselves this year. More than 1,800 learners partook in the campaign on Friday 20 September by taking the spirit of volunteerism to heart, leading by example and cleaned their school surrounding areas entirely. I would like to thank them for not only going the extra mile but heeding fully to the President’s call and doing their part this year. In total, we collected 719kg of mixed waste mainly comprising of litter, old clothing and garden refuse and the recyclables were mainly plastic bottles.
Remaining on the subject of “let’s change our attitudes”, the rising number of explicit gender based killings in Walvis Bay is of grave concern. Women and minors continue to be left vulnerable and more are losing their lives at the hands of the ones who are supposed to be protecting them. All members of society have the right to live without fear of violence and abuse. We must not condone this behaviour and we all have a role to play.
I will lead by example by pledging that for the month of October 2019, I urge all residents to be a voice of the voiceless. If you witness a member of our society experiencing abuse, call the nearest police station for assistance. The current culture of standing by and filming someone with your cell phone who is in need of assistance should no longer take place. Those who are in need of anger management can seek counselling at their local church or through qualified social workers and psychologists.
Counselling is always available to help you find ways to deal with emotional issues. Let us engage in open dialogue and speak up for the voiceless, because domestic abuse is a crime and is not acceptable
