Herero Mall to Get a Facelift


Plans to revamp Katutura’s Herero Mall into a state-of-the-art facility are at an advanced stage and hopes are high that construction work will commence next year.

The Windhoek City Council has the final say on the design and construction of the market, project consultant George Kozonguizi of the Namibia Housing and Urban Development said.

Herero Mall has in recent years been in the news for all the wrong reasons, ranging from safety concerns to lack of ablution facilities and the early morning operating hours of especially shebeens. With the revamp of the new market, things would be much different, consultants said yesterday.
