Plot applicants urged to fetch letters

Suspended Swapo youth politician Job Amupanda has urged land applicants to pick up their acknowledgment letters following mass submissions to the City of Windhoek last year.
Although there is no deadline to fetch these acknowledgement letters, Amupanda advised applicants to pick up them before the independence celebrations on March 21, because “you never know what can happen”.
Letters can be picked from the City’s customer care centre in the town centre.
Amupanda, George Kambala and Dimbulukeni Nauyoma were suspended by the ruling party last year after illegally occupying a plot in Kleine Kuppe last year.
This followed former Windhoek mayor Agnes Kafula allegedly dishing out land to connected Namibians.
The so-called ‘Affirmative Repositioning’ campaign later saw over 14 000 applications for plots submitted to the City.
Amupanda told Namibian Sun that applicants should continue to pick up their acknowledgement letters.
“It’s important because the acknowledgement letters have names on and the specific letter indicates that one has the intention and is in need of land. It also indicates that you took part in the mass action,” he said.
City of Windhoek spokesperson Joshua Amukugo told Namibian Sun the council would decide soon what the deadline would be to pick up the acknowledgment letters.
“We will decide on the deadline very soon. We will also decide what will happen to the applications if the acknowledgement letters are picked up after the deadline,” he remarked.
Amupanda recently said a group of land activists are planning to embark on another mass submission of applications for land at various municipalities by the end of February.
