RFA Donates to the Police


The Road Fund Administration (RFA) has eased the burden of a lack of vehicles in the police force following a donation of 22 cars.

Despite challenging financial turbulence, the RFA has managed to, during the concluded financial year, make a funding contribution to traffic law enforcement of N$34.4 million.

The vehicles will be required at various roadblocks across the country to enable the police to respond timely to road incidents.

The RFA budget allocation for NamPol traffic for the next financial year is N$15 million.

Road Fund Administration notes doubling in funding to local authorities over past two years


The Road Fund Administration (RFA) has, over the past two years, doubled its funding allocations to local authorities, from N$104 million to N$216 million.

This, according to RFA CEO Ali Ipinge, is a demonstration of the institution's commitment to improving urban roads that have endured years of underfunding.

Ipinge says the institution's targets are only achievable if road users pay their fair share of road user charges and, through government support, keep the country's N$120 billion worth of road assets in good condition.

RFA, RA determined to rehabilitate national roads


The Road Fund Administration and Roads Authority say they are determined to ensure that the Katima Mulilo roads and national roads leading to neighboring countries are rehabilitated to the required standard.

The two entities signed a cooperation agreement with municipalities and town councils recently.

The Road Fund Administration has entered into an agreement with the Katima Mulilo Town Council to ensure the rehabilitation of key roads in the town, namely Dr. Sam Nujoma Drive and Hage Geingob Avenue.

Public urged to remain calm as RFA introduces toll gates


The Chief Executive Officer of the Road Fund Administration has called on the public to remain calm amid the rising panic, as plans to introduce toll gates along 23 road sections in Namibia will force motorists to dig deeper into their pockets.

Ali Ipinge, instead, says Namibia stands to earn up to N$750 million in yearly earnings to upgrade and maintain its prestigious roads using toll gates, which he insists are common across Africa, Europe, and large parts of Asia.
