Shack Dwellers, NHAG to build houses at Rupara

12 December 2019 | Infrastruktuur
RUNDU – The Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia and the Namibia Housing Action Group (NHAG) are going to construct 32 houses at Rupara settlement in the Kavango West Region.

The co-director of NHAG, Heinrich Amushila, told Nampa the brick-making event for the houses was scheduled for yesterday.

“Thirty-two low cost housing units will be constructed by the federation through the ‘Buy-a-Brick’ initiative of Standard Bank Namibia,” he explained.

Amushila said land was already allocated by the village headman for this purpose. They also got the blessing of the land board for the 100 members of the federation at the settlement.

“Rupara is growing and has the following amenities: a health centre, satellite police station, MTC network tower, two churches, constituency office, youth centre as well as the Rupara Combined School with hostel,” Amushila said.

Members’savings

He said the federation’s members at the settlement saved over N$80 000 which will be used towards the first phase of the construction of the 32 houses.

The minister of urban and rural development, Peya Mushelenga, was expected to officially launch the brick-making event yesterday.

So far the federation has constructed 160 houses in the Kavango West region, with 30 houses at Mpungu and 130 at Nkurenkuru.

In the Kavango East Region, 41 houses have been constructed, with 11 at Rundu and 30 at Divundu. - Nampa
