Farmers in Tug-of-War With Housing Contractor

By John Muyamba

Rundu — A project intended to reduce the housing backlog in Rundu is well on track despite efforts by some community members to try to stall the project on grounds it has affected their mahangu fields.

Those opposed to the housing project feel it should be stopped as they claim it is adverse to their crops.

New Era has seen a copy of a letter from Sisa Namandje and Co. Incorporated saying Armstrong Properties and Construction invaded his clients' agricultural land, but the construction company says the project is within the 82-hectare plot given to it through an agreement with the Rundu Town Council.
