Public Private Partnership comes to life! (Erongo Region)

Public Private Partnership came to life last week when the Governor of Erongo announced that the Erongo region will purchase another truckload of cement to add to the one truckload of cement donated to the Region by Ohorongo Cement.

Ohorongo did the official hand-over of a truckload of cement to Erongo region on 8 June in Karibib. The hand over was one of many, as Ohorongo committed itself to donate 36 tons of cement to each of the 14 regions as part of the country’s Silver Jubilee Independence Celebrations, as well as towards the upliftment of the Namibian nation. The total value of the 14 truckload donation exceeds one million Namibian Dollars.

The hand-over was also witnessed by Hon. Hafeni Ndemula, Chairman of the Erongo Regional Council, both the Regional and Local Authority Counsellors and Traditional Authority representatives.

Hon. Governor Mutjavikwa said that the donation is teaching other Namibian companies a lesson and that it serves as an example for other organizations to follow suit. He said that many institutions must come to terms with the fact that we must all redistribute Namibian health to the poor in order to eradicate poverty.

“It requires that we target the ‘have-nots’ to evenly distribute wealth and Ohorongo Cement is an example even to the public service. Real action is required,” said the Governor.

“It is not just about hand-outs. We must create a workaholic region and embrace work ethics,” he said.

Shortly thereafter Hon. Governor Mutjavikwa announced that the region will be purchasing another truckload of cement for further distribution to ensure that the entire Erongo region benefits and is covered as widely as possible.

“This is a perfect example of PPP in action! The only way we can eradicate poverty is to align our goals and take hands . . . together we can make a difference,” said Mr. Hans-Wilhelm Schütte, MD of Ohorongo Cement.

Through the Office of the Prime Minister, the Governors of each region have been tasked to identify projects within their regions that they would utilize the cement for.

The projects who will benefit from the truckload donation as identified by Erongo Region are as follows:
