Windhoek-With many people travelling to various destinations for their holidays, the Minister of Environment and Tourism Pohamba Shifeta has cautioned against travellers littering.
The festive season is usually characterised by littering that takes place from travellers’ cars, and at resting places, social events, towns and villages.
“I don’t know why people in the parks litter. They drive in their vehicles and throw litter out of the window. Some are not even shy to throw litter when the dustbin is just there. It’s a primitive way of doing things. You see bottles and plastics all over and it’s an eyesore. Some people are with kids – what message are we giving to them?”
Shifeta said there is an urgent need for everyone to come on board and address littering.
