WHEN you have uns e r v i c ed land, you cannot blame people living on it for not developing the land. The reality is that the areas on the outskirts of Windhoek, where shacks have sprung up, are not legally allocated to those who have settled on them.
With high number of people living in informal settlements, there is a need to urgently address the issue of formally availing the land to those living on it so that they can erect permanent structures.
Likius Simon, a community leader in the Kilimanjaro informal settlement says: “We cannot develop the land we have because we have no assurance that when the land is legally demarcated, we shall have the same pieces of land.”
latest meeting took place on Wednesday, 11 July 2018 at the Nathanael Maxwilili Centre, where the city’s Chief Executive Officer Robert Kahimise met with the Constituency Cllr and the Community.”
