The Minister of Urban and Rural Development, Erastus Uutoni has appealed to the City of Windhoek under the new leadership of Nudo councilor Mayor Joseph Uapingene to intensify the delivery of serviced land and proper sanitation.

“I wish to strongly appeal to the City Council under the able leadership of Uapingene to intensify the provision of service land as well as the provision of proper sanitation. I am reliably informed that if we don’t seriously address the issue sewerage starting from now we are likely to face a very big challenge in a few years to come. Therefore let us jointly start now to prevent future outbreak of diseases,” Utoni said.

He was speaking at the National Housing Enterprise (NHE)’s handing over of 60 houses in Windhoek’s Samora Machel constituency in the Greenwell Matongo settlement.

The 60 houses were constructed under the Informal Settlement Upgrading Affordable Housing Pilot Project (ISUHPP), a pilot project and smart partnership between the urban and rural ministry, Khomas Regional Council, NHE and the City of Windhoek.

The ISUHPP project is an initiative of the Ministry of Urban and Rural Development, the City of Windhoek, the National Housing Enterprise and the Khomas Regional Council.

The project was launched in August 2020.

The 60 houses are an addition to houses already completed and handed over. So far, the informal settlement-upgrading programme has delivered over 570 houses, constructed by the NHE and CoW in various informal settlements of Windhoek.
