Farmers residing on the outskirts of Windhoek are happy with the good rains that continue to pour in their areas.

Farmers visited by our news team say they are relieved by the rains as they reignite their farming practices and ensure their own food security and self-reliance.

Those living at Satan Slog or ǂHoas say after enduring a very difficult and dry season last year, grazing for their livestock has drastically decreased.

One of the residents, Abel !Kharuxab is optimistic that farming will be much better and hopes that good rains will continue for some time.

Gerda Oarum, for her part, requested that the government provide them with seeds so that they could plant crops and expand their gardens.

At the same time, 18-year-old Jovane INanub, started engaging in a small-scale backyard garden that has yielded good results, which he hopes to supply to his mother and younger brother in Windhoek.

INanub says he has moved out of Windhoek due to the tough life of unemployment and to stay away from unwanted activities.
