More lights for informal settlements

The Mayor of the City of Windhoek, Cllr. Muesee Kazapua received a donation of solar powered lights worth N$23,000 for onward distribution to residents of the informal settlements from the Vice Mayor of Nanjing, Liu Yi’an. The Chinese delegation met with representatives of the City of Windhoek earlier this week to discuss economic cooperation, cultural exchanges, training and development. The visit marked the first of its kind since the two cities of Nanjing and Windhoek inked a Memorandum of Friendship and Cooperation in June last year. During the first official visit to Windhoek by the Nanjing Mayor Mr. Miao Luilin, Nanjing donated 110 solar energy lighting products for informal settlements without access to electricity. The cooperation between the two cities covers issues pertaining to trade, investment, training, development assistance, cultural exchange and tourism. (Photograph by Musa Carter)
