Repairs Continue At Windhoek Crematorium

The old crematorium repairs have partially been completed and it should be noted that the crematorium is being operated manually in order to clear the cremation backlog that had accumulated since January this year, said City of Windhoek Spokesperson, Joshua Amukugo.

This was aired out by the City of Windhoek earlier this week at a press briefing to inform and update the public on the progress made with the crematorium repairs and operations.

“Under normal circumstances, we cremate up to eight bodies a day, but we are currently cremating up to four bodies daily to prevent the furnace from overheating, while waiting for the replacement of the old furnace to be finalised,” he explained. He added that the construction work for the new building that will accommodate the new furnace is progressing well and installation is expected to be concluded by April 2016.
