Land rush: municipalities beg for funds

Windhoek

The municipalities of Windhoek and Oshakati, where government plans to start servicing thousands of residential erven, say the State would have to finance the mass land-servicing project.

City of Windhoek spokesperson Joshua Amukugo says it is the government’s responsibility to service land under the mass land-servicing scheme. Oshakati too, says it does not have the necessary funds.

Amukugo said – following the official announcement that the government plans to service 200,000 residential plots – it is now central government’s responsibility to service the identified areas, as the municipality does not have the needed equipment, given that they generally outsource this function to private contractors.
