RURAL and Urban minister Sophia Shaningwa has denied that she forced the Windhoek municipality to sell seven plots to one company, even though the council wanted to sell only two plots to the entity.
At a press conference this afternoon, the Minister said the article carried by The Namibian is devoid of any truth.
She said the Windhoek municipality council received an application from Shililifa Property Developers CC to purchase erf 1117 Wanaheda in terms of its resolution No.366/11/2013 and resolved to sell the said erf to Shililifa on conditions.
She also said the decision to sell the land was made by the council in 2013 before she was minister of urban.
”It is unfair that after three years, council now appears to want to change its earlier decision after they comfortably directed and allowed the developer to incur costs through surveying, subdivision and engineering services,” she said, adding that Shililifa created seven erven at its own costs and it is on that basis she granted approval to the sale of the seven plots.
