Khorixas to buy prepaid bulk water from NamWater

Khorixas Town Council (KTC) has resolved to buy pre-paid bulk water from NamWater to enable it to pay off its outstanding debt.
Chief Executive Officer, Andreas |Howoseb says as of 4 March, the council water debt to NamWater stood at more than N$38,4 million.
He says the council is unable to honour the debt.
|Howoseb says they collect N$1 million a month when their debt to Namwater stands at N$1,3 million a month.
He says the council plans to install prepaid water meters at houses and they will constantly communicate with residents about how they will go about installing the meters.
Khorixas Mayor, Lena Gaeses added that currently the old potable pipelines that supply water to the town are leaking, adding to the high water bills.
