Oponganda Cemetery extension nears completion
The CoW estimates that currently an average of 10 to 15 burials a week take place at Oponganda Cemetery and more burial space was made available at the Old Katutura Cemetery as well as the Old Location Cemetery, which has relieved some of the pressure on Oponganda Cemetery.
The City of Windhoek is also waiting for the outcome of an environment impact assessment, which is being done for a possible cemetery construction in the vicinity of Rocky Crest which will accommodate the western suburbs burial demands. Currently City of Windhoek is responsible for innovative urban management to create a quality living environment for all generations and to facilitate communicate and implement an integrated sustainable urban management service through its employees and to ensure maintenance of land use and that these activities are carried out according to the law.
