Neu Sommerau residents plead for proper roads


Residents of Neu Sommerau resettlement farm near Kombat are calling on the government to improve their roads as children get stuck when they walk in the mud on the way to school during the rainy seasons.

The Neu Sommerou resettlement farm has been in existence since 2003.

Although the population on the farm has increased over the years, there is a lack of some basic services, with the lack of proper roads being most concerning.

Dr. Shangula made these remarks at Omatako Clinic, where he concluded his visits to health facilities in the Otjozondjupa Region.
