Namibia: Housing a Major Priority for Nalao

[New Era]Eenhana -A shortage of decent and affordable housing is one of the major challenges faced by the Namibia Association of Local Authority Officers (Nalao), with an estimated 50 000 households living in informal settlements in local towns across the country. Nalao now hopes that the first phase of the government's mass housing development programme would address the problem, said Nalao president Victor Agostinho Thipigo at the opening of Nalao's annual general meeting at Eenhana last week.
