Informal Settlement Upgrading Pilot Project to deliver 113 new houses


The Informal Settlement Upgrading Affordable Housing Pilot Project is about to reduce the housing backlog by 113 houses as construction begins.

The houses will be constructed in Windhoek's Greenwell Matongo Extension 4.

The late President Hage Geingob once said that the living conditions in the informal settlements should be declared a national humanitarian crisis. 

The Deputy Minister of Urban and Rural Development, Evelyn !Nawases-Taeyele, reminded those in attendance of his words. 

Mixed feelings on 1904-08 Genocide Memorial Museum in National Assembly


Some Swapo MPs in the National Assembly have embraced a motion by NUDO member Joseph Kauandenge for the establishment of the 1904-08 Genocide Memorial Museum.

They, however, question what the difference is between this motion and the one tabled by former Swanu leader, Usutuaije Maamberua, which was discussed and adopted by the house.

In her motivation, Evelyn !Nawases-Taeyele, says such a museum requested by Kauandenge should not only be for OvaHerero and Nama people but for all Namibians.
