Pay up, Nujoma tells farmers
10 February 2020 | Agriculture
Nujoma on Friday addressed more than 100 resettled farmers the Otjozondjupa region at the 6th annual farmers’ information sharing session.
He expressed concern about some of the resettled farmers who he said are reluctant to pay back to government the lease fees as agreed per the resettlement lease agreement for these farming units.
“Dear farmers, it is important to note that the lease fees are obtained from you so that they can assist the government to acquire more farms for resettlement purposes,” he said.
Nujoma further warned that the continuous failure to pay these fees may result in government cancelling the lease agreements and consequently reallocating the government farming units to other successful applicants.
Otjozondjupa has more than 150 farmers who are resettled by the government on its farming units. - Nampa
