Namibia: Gold Mine Aims to Provide All Staff With Housing

[New Era]Otjikoto -Commercial farmers in the areas surrounding the Otjikoto gold mine have expressed concern that the presence of mineworkers near their farms would result in informal settlements springing up in the vicinity, which could further lead to the poaching of wildlife and livestock theft. The farmers expressed their worries at a public meeting organised by the mine management this week, with some of the farmers asking whether the mine would monitor the mineworkers when they are off duty.
