President Geingob proposes May Day for a national clean-up campaign

President Hage Geingob has proposed that Workers Day, 1 May, be dedicated to a nationwide clean-up campaign.
During a consultative meeting with NUNW and all affiliate unions at State House, Geingob said that Namibian towns are getting dirtier by the day and "everyone, from the army to the President must join the campaign to clean".
Workers day is to be marked at Khorixas in the Kunene Region.
"So, as you're going to celebrate, please clean up," Geingob told the union leaders.
Windhoek used to enjoy being the cleanest city in Africa but lost that status to Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, a few years ago.
Recently, local kwaito singer, Ees proposed that Independence Day to be set aside for cleaning, which the President shot down and said, "the ideas are good but Independence Day is still a sacrosanct event."
