Onelago United commended for cleaning up

31 January 2018 | Local News

The Oshana regional councillor for Ondangwa Rural Constituency, Kawishiweni Abraham, has commended the Oshana Second Division football team Onelago United for their clean-up campaign at Adolfi location.

According to Abraham, the regional council supported the rare initiative by the youth and provided cleaning equipment.

On 20 January the Onelago United football team from Onelago village launched a massive clean-up at Adolfi location as a token of appreciation to the community for their support of the team.

“Our team has no financial means and we heavily depend on this community for all our financial means. That why we decided to organise ourselves and clean up the location as a token of appreciation for what they do for our team,” team captain Paulus Kagola said.

He said they chose a cleaning campaign because people need to live in a healthy environment. The cleaning campaign was supported by the regional council, the traditional authority and the Adolfi location management committee.

Abraham said the location was too dirty for human habitation and most of the shebeens were at risk of losing their liquor licences.

“What this youthful soccer team has done is a great job.

"They organised themselves, came up with the initiative and approached the regional council for support material such as refuse bags and gloves.

“Annually at this time shebeen owners renew their liquor licences, but at Adolfi they were in trouble because the location was so dirty. Now this team has rescued them,” Abraham said.

He said he made his private vehicle available to be used in the cleaning campaign.

Paulus Mutikisha, the village headman for Ekolyanaambo where the location is situated, said he cancelled an important meeting to attend the clean-up as it was in the interest of his village and the entire Onamutai District of the Oukwanyama Traditional Authority.

In the Oshana Second Division League 2017/2018 campaign, Onelago United are currently in seventh position with only three games to go.
