Some residents of the Tutungeni residential area at Rundu are calling on the Rundu Town Council to completely rehabilitate the ditches left behind after it laid sewerage pipes.

The uneven ground has blocked access to the residents' houses.

Residents claim that the problem remained unattended for the past 20 years.

They say whenever the Town Council fixes the sewer pipe, they dig but do not level the ground afterward.

The situation becomes worse during the rainy season.

Attempts to get the attention of the town council on several occasions did not yield any results.

Contacted for comment, Sakaria Shopati, the Strategic Executive Officer for Infrastructure, Planning and Technology Services at the Rundu Town Council, says they are aware of the situation and the matter is being taken care of.

He attributed the delay to the procurement process and hopes work begins on the rehabilitation of the road next week.
