The Regional Councillor of the Windhoek Rural Constituency, Hon. Piet Adams has taken the bull by the horns since he was elected in November of last year as the man in charge of Khomas Region’s biggest and most daunting constituency.

The soft-spoken Adams revealed to LPMExpress his plans for the Constituency and the activities he has been involved in since taking office.

“Since I took office as the Windhoek Rural Constituency Councillor so much has happened in our constituency.  Interventions in terms of provision of water began with the drilling phase of boreholes that were completed at farms Hond Ingaan, Kransneus , Autabib , Kanobib , Bloukrans Primary School and Satanslocht. We are waiting for the appointment of contractors that will put up solar panels and the laying of pipelines to complete the whole exercise,” disclosed Adams.

“Even Groot Aub which was known for water supply woes over the years has been getting water almost every day for those that are connected to the main pipeline,” beamed the Councilor.

The Windhoek Rural Councilor launched a solar energy project funded by Daad in conjunction with the University of Munich and Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) to address electricity needs at farm !Kharoxas and Nauaspoort.

Farm Verdruk Saamstaan has also been identified to benefit from solar energy.

Furthermore, the CJC Agricultural College in Groot Aub came on board to award scholarships to three youths to study in horticulture, according to Adams.

Two vulnerable young people were also identified from the Constituency to improve their academic qualifications through Namcol.

“Within two weeks’ time we will give business training to community members,” he divulged.

Adams said that they were facing some battles due to have obtained only one seat in the Khomas Regional Council which is why he decided to devise a plan, dubbed the Windhoek Rural Constituency Advancement, that would help with the development those in rural Windhoek.
