N$4 Billion for Railway Upgrade

By Tuyeimo Haidula

GOVERNMENT has set aside N$4 billion for the upgrading of the country's ageing railway infrastructure over the next three years.

This was announced yesterday by the works and transport minister Alpheus !Naruseb during President Hage Geingob's engagement with the business community at the Khomas regional council headquarters.

!Naruseb was responding to questions asked by the chief executive officer of the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Tarah Shaanika on behalf of the business community.

Shaanika asked what government was doing to improve the main aspects of co-ordination in the public service. He gave an example that while the port of Walvis Bay has embarked on commendable improvements, the requisite infrastructure is 100 years behind.
