CoW, Kingston municipality become twins

Focus on housing

08 February 2019 | Regering
WINDHOEK – The City of Windhoek (CoW) and the Kingston municipality of Jamaica on Wednesday signed a twinning agreement in an effort to promote municipal developments.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Windhoek mayor Muesee Kazapua said the agreement includes amongst others the exchange of information about the development of housing programmes in line with what is desired and what is achievable.

It also includes development planning as well as the improvement of infrastructure, promotion of tourism and cultural exchange and water management.

Kazapua said the agreement further includes education, gender and environmental restoration, enhancing the process of broadening the revenue base for the two city councils, while identifying a framework within which activities are currently being carried out by both councils.

“The agreement should not be just a pure protocol document, but should improve the lives of the people of both cities,” he stressed.

On his part, Kingston mayor Delroy Williams said the lack of houses and growing informal settlements experienced in Windhoek are similar to his city, and called for a need to put heads and hands together and tackle the demand of housing.

“As cities with similar challenges we need to implement efficiently and adequately the solutions that both cities will share in order to find solutions to these municipal challenges,” he pointed out. - Nampa
