Kazapua said the CoW is cognisant of the need for land and housing in Windhoek, adding that councillors will do everything in their power to accelerate shelter for the needy and ensure that Windhoek develops in an orderly fashion.
“As mayor I call on residents to desist from taking the law into their own hands and to cooperate with council in the implementation of the ongoing programmes on housing,” he said. He also called for the prudent use of water in the absence of good rains.
He bemoaned the growing trend of illegal traders in the city centre, saying “Our statistics show growth of 191 per cent [increase in illegal traders], which represents an increase from 33 illegal traders in 2016 (to) 93 cases to date.”
Land delivery, provision of affordable housing and the creation of liveable and hygienic conditions top the CoW's agenda in 2018. – Nampa
