OSHAKATI, 06 FEB (NAMPA) – The Oshakati Town Council has invested N.dollars 25 million into the servicing of land at Onawa village on the outskirts of the town during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 financial years.
The council’s spokesperson, Katarina Kamari said the servicing will see the provision of water lines, electricity, an access and main road as well as residential plots for low and middle income earners.
Onawa, Kamari said, will be used as the town’s reception area.
“The project will be carried out in various phases, but 500 erven are to be serviced in this first phase, which is due to start in the 2020 financial and its completion time is not yet determined due to limited resources at our disposal,” she explained.
Kamari added that 300 erven are to be serviced by the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia, adding that a total of 3 000 erven are to be built at Onawa, depending on the availability of the funds.
The town council in December 2018 appointed John Namusheshe Construction and Investment CC to construct the access and main roads of Onawa.
The company, Kamari said, is anticipated to complete the roads by April this year.
