Upgrading of a Namibian Police station will be completed in Nov this year

SWAKOPMUND: The upgrading of a Namibian Police station in Swakopmund which dragged on for more than two years will be completed in November this year.

This was confirmed to Nampa by project contractor Gerhardus Hall of Paint Logix and Renovations today.

He said most of the work is done, and they will complete everything by November.

The upgrading of the police station in the Swakopmund town centre includes the administration block, the charge offices, nine holding cells and a kitchen for the inmates. 

The project started in 2011, and stopped for a while in 2012 due to a delay in the supply of building materials from neighbouring South Africa. Work on the upgrade resumed in 2013.

The Deputy Regional Commander of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in Erongo, Deputy Commissioner Andreas Nelumbu said N.dollars 11,7 million was budgeted for the project in 2011, and another N.dollars 3 million added in 2013.
