Councillor David Martin of Moses //Garoeb Constituency has big plans lined up for his constituency as he eyes to build a stadium, shopping complex and industrial park in his constituency.
Martin said, “I have already done a lot for this constituency but much more needs to be done. There has already been erven demarcated for over 1700 residents and the constituency is busy being formalised by making services like water, electricity, sanitation and tarred roads available for the residents.”
The Councillor has been in office since December 2010 and he initiated the operation of the temporary school in Havana, which is situated behind the constituency’s offices.
Currently the school has six teachers and three cleaners. Martin said he has applied for land from the City of Windhoek to build a bigger and permanent school for the learners of Moses //Garoeb Constituency.
“Tarring of roads, will reduce dust and bring taxis and buses nearer to the people,”added Martin focusing on some of the development he intends to follow through with.

Martin added that near the head office of the constituency, there is a mobile police station, that helps the residence and therefore they do not have to go to the Wanaheda Police, which is very far from where they live.
Behind his offices there is also an empty building that he is busy filling up with medical equipment, with the help of The University of Namibia’s Medical School, where patients can go for check ups, instead of going to clinics in other locations.
“This makeshift clinic will serve the purpose for sick individuals to come and get examined and if the patient is very sick or it is an emergency then they can be referred to a doctor or the hospital,” said the Councillor
“I want to have developed my Constituency, for the better so that they do not have to travel long distances for basic needs, they should be able to walk done the road to a shopping mall, to a police station or to a clinic like most of the developed suburbs,” he added. “I want my Constituency to be the hub of Windhoek and I would also like to encourage all the other Councillors to push for development in their Constituencies to improve the lives of the people living there. It can be done,” Martin said.
