Rude drivers delay fire brigade

08 December 2016 | Infrastructure

The Otjiwarongo Municipality has entered into a land servicing deal with UUM Investment under a public private partnership (PPP) to service Extension 8 and 10.

Minister of Urban and Rural Development, Sophia Shaningwa announced the deal during the launch of land servicing activities at the town.

She said a total of 401 plots will be created for residential and light industrial purposes at these two extensions.

Shaningwa said UUM Investment is expected to channel clean water for drinking, lay down sewers, erect electricity poles, create street and mark sizes of the new plots to be sold.

The serviced plots are expected to be sold for between N$60 000 and N$80 000, and the minister said the municipality should allocate and sell the plots carefully.

“I urge the municipality to strictly allocate one plot per person and remove names of those residents who will receive theirs out of the master list.”

She urged the local authority to speed up the process and reduce the housing backlog by allowing other construction companies to also come in under the PPP and service more plots at the town.

Chairman of UUM Investment, Gerson Katjimune told Nampa land servicing at the extensions will officially start on 2 January next year.

The sites will be handed over to the Otjiwarongo Municipality at the end of September next year.

Katjimune said plot sizes will range between 300 and 700 square metres.

The Development Bank of Namibia (DBN), he said, funds the project.

Otjiwarongo mayor Bennes Haimbondi and his six local authority councillors also attended the event.
