Karibib – Local businesses in Karibib recently joined hands to plants trees as part of the drive to beautify the town. Host to Namibia’s oldest gold mine, Navachab Gold Mine as well various marble processing plants, the town serves as the gateway to and from the coast from the country’s interior.
“Karibib is a town with a rich history and an equally promising future. This is part of the town’s endeavours to make it more attractive and signals our tripartite commitment to planting deep roots into the socio-economic development of the town,” said the outgoing Mayor of Karibib, Councilor Nabot Titus, during the recent tree-planting ceremony. He further stated that the town looks forward to economic growth aided by the entrance of new industries as well as the mine’s expansion plans which are taking place despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
George Botshiwe, the Managing Director of Navachab Gold Mine said that the plants chosen for this purpose are a reflection of the people of Karibib. “It is a tough, hardy battler which can stand up to wind, sun and dry soil – pretty much like the people of Karibib – resilient and motivated. And we look forward to a long journey with the Karibib family on a path of new prosperity and growth.”
The twenty trees were sponsored by the local Woermann & Brock dealership.
