Swakopmund-About 90 houses built in Swakopmund under the mass housing programme are currently being demolished at the town due to poor workmanship.
The houses are situated close to the dumping site on the northeastern side of coastal town.
When New Era visited the area this week workers were already demolishing some of the houses. The said houses are part of 400 low-cost units constructed by Delta Group Holdings, who were awarded a N$91 million contract under the mass housing programme.
Industry sources on Friday told New Era the houses were poorly constructed and deemed a health and safety risk for those who would have been allocated
the houses through the National Housing Enterprise (NHE).
