Pressure is mounting against the Walvis Bay Municipality administration to remove Red Force as a debt collector.

Councillor Ephraim Shozi, at a community meeting last night (Wednesday), said he will table a motion at the next council meeting for the removal of Red Force as a debt collector.

Other councillors, including Ryan Gordon, Albertina Nkoshi, Paulus Kauhondamwa, and Ronald Bramwell, supported the decision.

Last month, residents marched to the municipality to demand the removal of Red Force as a debt collector at Walvis Bay.

The municipality appointed the entity last year to recoup about N$384 million owed by the residents.

The frustrated residents say their municipal debts have significantly increased while some of the houses were disconnected from the supply.

They say Red Force demands 75% payment of any outstanding debt before reconnection of the water supply.
