Land servicing activities on the newly identified Otjiwarongo cemetery site are progressing as planned by the local authority council.
Otjiwarongo Mayor, Gottlieb Shivute in an interview with Nampa on Wednesday said council identified the site in June this year with a council decision attached to it that the municipality’s technical department should develop the new cemetery site at a cost of N.dollars 500 000.
“The development activities on the new cemetery site are going as planned,” he said.
The new cemetery is situated about two kilometres west of town near the railway station alongside the Otjiwarongo-Outjo main road.
The 14-hectare cemetery will amongst others have ample parking space, a security guard house with ablution facilities, and palisade fencing, Shivute said.
“The current cemetery in town is approaching its full capacity and the new site will take over once its lifespan comes to an end,” he concluded.
