Swakopmund's high unemployed rate is a cause for concern

Swakopmund Constituency Councillor Louisa Kativa says the town's high unemployment rate is worrisome.

Kativa handed over equipment to small and medium enterprises, valued at N$130,000, through the Constituency Development Fund.

Kativa believes that the high unemployment rate has the potential to cause serious social repercussions if overlooked.

One possible way, she says, to address youth unemployment is to support young people in creating their own businesses, as they have the interest and potential to become self-employed.
