The City of Windhoek has repaired and replaced about 45 traffic light poles in the last 12 months due to damage, which cost the municipality about N$1 million. This, the Namibian newspaper reports, is less than half the amount of money spent in 2018 on replacing traffic lights damaged in accidents, which amounted to N$2,5 million. City of Windhoek spokesperson Harold Akwenye on Friday said the current damage is not all due to accidents. The municipality continues to struggle holding those responsible for wrecking traffic lights accountable, because the culprits mostly manage to flee before law-enforcement officers arrive at the scene.
