Honourable John Mutorwa, Minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry (MAWF) officially inaugurated the Rundu Regional Head Quarters, of the MAWF last week, in the Kavango Region.
The new double storey building inaugurated cost close to N$27 million and according to the minister marked a milestone in the ministry’s efforts to bring services closer to Namibians in various regions of the country.
“This will be the place where citizens, residents, farmers and members of the public of the global village, can and must access all crucial and essential MAWF services under one roof,” he added.
He said the services on offer range from ploughing, extension services, engineering, weeding, water provision, veterinary support and forestry services. “If you have any ministry related issues or queries you will find all the advice and answers right here at this Rundu Regional Office, it is a Regional MAWF one stop centre,” he said.
He also advised those who will move into the building to make the prudent utilization of the offices, and to make their personal business professional commitment with and provide the people with the services they rightly deserve. “We are all public and Civil Servants, not public bosses, nor small minded civil rulers,” he added.
Meanwhile, earlier in the week, the ministry in a press statement, also advised farmers who do not have enough grazing for their animals to sell their livestock while they are still in good condition in order to avoid serious losses as the effects of the drought continue.
