Oshakati’s deteriorating road conditions irk drivers

By Marx Itamalo

DRIVERS in Oshakati have accused the town council of neglecting sections of the town roads, which they say are damaging their vehicles.

Several drivers in town pointed out that many of the roads are in bad shape and need repair, which is costing them a lot of money in vehicle repairs.

“Many roads here are in bad shape, and our vehicles routinely break down. My low-profile car has been severely damaged because of the bad road conditions in this town. What does the town council do? They get a lot of money from rates but do not want to improve roads. What is wrong with them?” Jackson Nambinga, an Ompumbu resident, said.

Nambinga said the worst stretch of road is from the University of Namibia (Unam) campus to town. He pointed out that during the rainy season, the roads worsen, causing vehicle damage and delays in his commute to work.
