Vice President inaugurates community garden in Outjo


Vice President Netumbo Nandi Ndaitwah has inaugurated a 20-hectare crop and vegetable community garden in Outjo that is to be a key player in the agricultural sector in the Kunene Region, amidst the challenges of drought spells and food insecurity at household levels.

Initiated in August 2019, with the first production only taking place in January this year, the N$5 million-valued Harambe-Oyetu community garden will be operating on a commercial basis under the terms of the Green Scheme Policy.

Outjo residents fed up with alcohol and drug abuse


Outjo residents have appealed for strict enforcement of the law to minimise criminality and alcohol and drug abuse within their community.

They expressed their needs during a meeting with authorities organised by the European Union (EU) in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.

The Kunene residents believe that most of the social evils encountered in their community have their origins in alcohol and drug abuse.

Shebeens are mainly found in the informal settlement, which the municipality says was designated for residential purposes.
