Otjiwarongo Municipality is currently busy with water reticulation project for New Ombili informal settlement. The Water Network Division is constructing communal stand pipes along the streets and is pleading to the Ombili residents who have illegally expanded their yards to reduce them to their original size with immediate effect. Failure to do so will result in no standpipe construction. Residents were also requested to cooperate with the Municipal officials to make the project run smooth. The Mayor Honourable Bennes Haimbondi represented Council at the meeting.
