PDM promises to reduce water and electricity rates for domestic workers and single parents

The Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) has promised to reduce the water and electricity rate of all domestic workers and single parents in urban areas once they are voted into power in the upcoming elections.
Its leader, McHenry Venaani told a rally in Katutura East, that they will add three-dollars to the rates and taxes of some residents in urban areas, to subsidise basic services for poor and vulnerable citizens.
Venaani says every constituency will have a clinic and factory, once they are voted into power, to create jobs and quality healthcare.
He also promised that no foreigners will be awarded tenders in urban areas under their leadership.
Instead, they will award big tenders to many companies to share the wealth, of which a share of 30% will be reserved for youths and women.
This will also stimulate the small and medium enterprises (SME) sector, he emphasised.
The City Police, once they win seats in the City of Windhoek Council, will also recruit community law enforcement officers to clean riverbeds, and protect women and children from crime.
Venaani, says they will also construct markets with toilets and water for street vendors.
He also promised to revoke the membership of candidates found guilty of corruption, tribalism or nepotism, once elected.
He also challenged President Hage Geingob's administration to release the names of the new fishing quota beneficiaries.
Venaani also pledged to abolish traffic fines for taxi operators and introduce points for every traffic violation.
He says, they will withdraw taxi licenses only once points are depleted.
The opposition leader has also lodged his dismay with his counterpart in Botswana on the killing of fishermen in Impalila Island.
