Low-Cost Housing On a Shoestring Budget
By Josephine Nicodemus
The Outapi Town Council has funded the construction of more than 100 low-cost houses for over N$450 000 through the Build Together Programme for the past three years.
Located on the Oshakati/Ruacana main road with another road connecting to Outapi-Tsandi and Okahao, Outapi has become the commercial and administrative hub of the Omusati Region.
Outapi was declared a town in 1997 and proclaimed the capital and administrative head of Omusati in 1998. It has a population of 6 600 and is accessible by all residents of the entire Omusati that has a population of 242 900.
