Residents of Rundu are still not happy with the services offered by NORED.
They expressed themselves at a consultation meeting, organized by the Rundu Town Council.
The Ministry of Urban and Rural Development and the Ministry of Mines and Energy are consulting and soliciting inputs from key stakeholders on the establishment of Regional Electricity Distributors and their impact on local authorities.
Residents claimed NORED has either been ignoring them or not attending to their concerns, hence the feeling that the council ends its relationship with NORED, once the contract comes to an end in 2025.
Resident suggested that Rundu Town Council establish a unit to supply and distribute electricity or enter into a joint venture with a certified electricity company.
