      PM calls local authorities on house provision

      by Ester Mbathera

      ALL YOURS ... Prime minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila during the handover of houses to members of the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia at Henties Bay. Picture: contributed

      PRIME minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila has urged the local authorities to make serviced land available for the construction of affordable houses.

      She made the call on Friday at Henties Bay during the handing over of 49 houses to members of the Shack Dwellers Federation Namibia (SDFN) that were built with financial support from FirstRand Foundation, Pupkewitz Foundation and Ohorongo Cement.

      “Land and services such as water and sanitation are basic inputs into a housing infrastructure, and the role of housing is of utmost importance in helping the country to progress in its development efforts,” said the PM.

      She added that the government will accelerate implementation of the housing programmes through the public private partnerships targeted at the low income earners.

      Kuugongelwa-Amadhila said government had put in place a support model, the flexible land tenure, to facilitate accessibility to land and decent shelter.

      This system, she said, is one of the solutions to alleviate residential land and housing shortage in the country that is being rolled out in different towns.
