A Walvis Bay resident who is confined to bed, Abraham Shitaleni this week moved into his own house in Kuisebmond. The Mayor of Walvis Bay, His Worship Alderman Immanuel Wilfried handed the Shitaleni family their new home at a special ceremony in the new house.
“As we are bringing 2016 to a close, it is important to reflect and look back on how we have used one of our most vital resources- time. This year has been a good year for the Council in terms of delivering suitable land for the construction of houses for our residents. As we stand here, it is rewarding to see the support we receive for our efforts in housing delivery” said Alderman Wilfried.
“The importance of partnerships has been highlighted here today and I would like to acknowledge and single out the role of Fabreca Construction in working with us to our goal of adequate housing for all. I have no doubt that they will continue to do their best and I look forward to see more of their outstanding work. In the same breath, I would like to thank the positive role of our other partner, Erongo Red in donating the electrical connection fees for this home. On behalf of the Municipal Council, I thank all of you for your continued support and with your backing, turning a dream into a reality. Let us strive to continue making an impact in the lives of our people in 2017 and beyond” he continued.
“We as Council are happy and share in the excitement of the beneficiary, Mr. Abraham Shitaleni and his family who now have a proper roof over their head” he said.
