UNAM Southern Campus needs N$50 mln

Long delay in construction

21 October 2019 | Ekonomie
KEETMANSHOOP – The University of Namibia still needs to secure close to N$50 million for the completion of the first phase of its Southern Campus in Keetmanshoop.

Construction of the first phase, situated in the Noordhoek residential area, was supposed to be completed by September last year but was stopped due to financial constraints.

UNAM assistant pro-vice chancellor, Erold Naomab, told Nampa last week that construction will not resume anytime soon as funds are not yet available.

He explained that the ministry of higher education, training and innovation is working closely with the university and other stakeholders to ensure that funds are made available.

During president Hage Geingob’s town hall meeting in Keetmanshoop in July, higher education minister Itah Kandjii-Murangi assured that funds would be made available and the project completed towards the end of this year.

“All I know is that the funds will be secured, we must know that the funds will be secured in at least two financial years but management remains committed to the completion of the construction,” Naomab said.

Facilities

The construction of the first phase of the campus commenced in August 2016 and is expected to cost over N$80 million upon completion.

It will amongst others house four lecture halls, four geoscience laboratories, one classroom, administration offices, a disability access ramp, lecturers’ offices, a boardroom, ablution facilities and study areas.

The university currently uses temporary facilities at the Teachers’ Resource Centre in Krönlein, which falls under the ||Kharas directorate of education, arts and culture.

The main contractors on the project are Babyface Civils and China Jiangxi International. - Nampa
