Informal settlements' residents accuse CoW of not doing enough to provide water

Residents living in Windhoek's informal and rural areas say the city is not doing enough to provide its inhabitants with water during these trying times of COVID-19.
Recently community members of the Groot Aub settlement held a meeting where they expressed their dissatisfaction on the lack of action the city and its management have taken to address water crisis in that area.
Walter Haseb, adviser to the /Khomanin Traditional Authority explained that residents of Groot Aub's Beverly Hills location used to get water from a nearby church, a situation which the church could no longer maintain for 24 hours.
Haseb says the church now only allows residents to get water from dusk until dawn.
NBC News spoke to the City of Windhoek's spokesperson Lydia Amutenya on the general situation at the informal areas in Windhoek and within the city's boundaries.
