Mass housing will resume soon - Shaningwa
URBAN and rural development minister Sophia Shaningwa says the mass housing programme that was suspended last month will resume soon.
The programme that was being run by the National Housing Enterprise (NHE) was suspended following a number of irregularities.
Without giving an exact date, Shaningwa said quantity surveyors from the works and transport ministry will recommend by the end of this month what contractors should charge for their work.
Speaking during a press briefing on Friday in Windhoek, Shaningwa also said the project was suspended because NHE could not raise N$2 billion to bankroll the programme to build about 10 000 houses between 2014 and 2016.
