CoW does a bit of gardening
07 June 2021 | Local News
The municipality contracted 35 Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to do the weeding and cleaning in cooperation with their internal teams.
According to section head for logistical support at the parks division Jaco Fourie, Windhoek has grown so big that it would take a long time to do the cleaning with their limited internal resources.
“We identified competent partners to help us clean Windhoek’s busiest routes as quickly as possible. This is done every year after the rainy season. We had a long rainy season this year, but it makes little sense to start cleaning while it’s still raining, because the grass and other weeds will simply grow back,” Fourie said.
The City thanked residents for their patience, saying the “gardening” would be done soon.
SMEs who want to take part in the City’s next cleaning initiative, can submit their profiles to their Procurement department to register as vendors.
