Ohorongo Cement continues brick-making training

Anti-urbanisation drive

08 March 2018 | Sakenuus
RUNDU – Ohorongo Cement today will conduct brick-making training for the Kavango East Region in Rundu.

Ohorongo’s public relations and corporate communication officer, Esther Mbathera, said the training is aimed at empowering people by transferring brick-making skills, which will translate into better housing, job creation and economic empowerment.

Mbathera said trainees were nominated by the regional council. Each constituency is allowed to nominate at least two people.

She said the company, amongst others, decided to carry out the project to train people in order to discourage urbanisation as a lot of people move from rural areas to urban areas in search of employment.

“The goal is for every constituency in the country to have a brick-making factory,” said Mbathera.

The company plans to train at least 40 people per region.

Training has already taken place in regions such as Oshana, Oshikoto, Erongo and Ohangwena.

Tomorrow, training will be offered for Kavango West candidates, also in Rundu, because Kavango West does not have the proper facilities for the company to conduct the training there, Mbathera said.

Thereafter, they will move to the Hardap, //Kharas and Zambezi regions. - Nampa
