Erongo Governor Neville André has called on the three re-elected mayors of the coastal towns of Swakopmund, Walvis Bay, and Henties Bay to expand their services to the residents in anticipation of high urban-rural migration this year.

This André was highlighted during an interview with nbc News.

Andre says rural-urban migration has placed local authorities under pressure and is making it difficult to meet the increasing demands for basic services as a result of the high influx.

For a country such as Namibia, he says, it has always been the dream of most rural youth to acquire education and relocate to towns in search of jobs and other economic opportunities with hope for a better life.

Towns such as Swakopmund, Walvis Bay, and Henties Bay therefore need to improve their capacity to cater to the growing population.
