OPM rejects Kavango East Regional Council's request for financial assistance

The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) has rejected the Kavango East Regional Council's request for Disaster Risk Management financial assistance.
The Council requested N$122,8 million to implement a stormwater emergency plan, establish a new cemetery at Rundu and for COVID-19 emergency funeral services related expenses.
It has rather advised the council to budget for such needs under the development budget through the Ministry of Urban and Rural Development and the National Planning Commission.
