Keetmans Denies Tampering With Mass Housing List

KEETMANSHOOP - The Keetmanshoop municipality has rejected claims in a recent news article that accused its officials of having tampered with the mass housing beneficiary list in which some residents were apparently accidentally declared as 'dead' while they are still alive.

An article by The Namibian newspaper this Wednesday headlined 'Keetmans housing list tampered with' indicates that the municipality admitted to having mistakenly declared some of the beneficiaries as dead.

In the article one such beneficiary, one Anton Isak Hanse, said he was shocked to learn that he was declared dead, and that he thus suspected the list was tampered with to deny him the opportunity to legally own a home.
