WINDHOEK, 19 MAR (NAMPA) - The Affirmative Repositioning (AR) movement held a peaceful demonstration from the Katutura Magistrate’s Court to the City of Windhoek (CoW) headquarters on Monday, demanding answers regarding the 14 000 land applications submitted in 2014 by Windhoek residents.
The march started at 10h00 following activist Dimbulukeni Nauyoma’s court appearance in the Katutura Magistrate’s Court.
Nauyoma’s court appearance follows his arrest in January for allegedly trying to obstruct a police officer from executing official duties, and for illegal land grabbing and instigating public violence.
The AR-led demonstrators submitted their memorandum of demands to City of Windhoek’s Chief Executive Officer, Robert Kahimise and his management team and demanded answers from the CoW regarding the finalisation of the 300 plots at Goreangab under the mass urban land servicing project.
The protestors then proceeded to the Parliament Gardens, where they submitted their Land Indigenization Bill to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Peter Katjavivi.
The Bill, among other objectives, outlines the stoppage of sale of land to foreign nationals.
