SWAKOPMUND Municipal office bearers have been elected for a new term.

24 December 2018 | Government

Paulina Nashilundo, Swakopmund mayor: “Affordable housing and land remains at the top of our agenda.”

Adolf Kaure - Paulina Nashilundo was re-elected as the mayor of Swakopmund for 2019.

The election of office bearers took place on Tuesday in the municipal chambers.

Fellow Swapo party member Maria Elago also retained her position as deputy mayor of the holiday town for 2019. Erkki Shitana was re-elected as the chairperson of the management committee and he is deputised by Kleopas Ngwena (both from Swapo).

Nehemiah Salomon and Assertia Marsh (also from Swapo) are ordinary members of the management committee.

Wilfred Groenewald (Swakopmund Residents Association) is the additional member of the management committee while other councillors are Eliphas //Khoaseb (United Democratic Front), Uahimisa Kaapehi (National Unity Democratic Organisation) and Elize Hangula (Popular Democratic Movement).

In her accept speech Nashilundo said that the provision of housing and land will continue to be a priority for the Swakopmund town council.

“Affordable housing and land remains high on our agenda. I am proud to say that a total of 400 completed houses were handed over by our former minister of urban and rural development Sophia Shaningwa at the start of February 2018 under the Mass Housing project and another 36 houses were handed over to the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia in March 2018 by First Lady Monica Geingos.”

She added that council will also keep on encouraging more residents to join the Shack Dwellers Federation and acquire affordable housing.

She further said that events like the first-ever Swakopmund SME Expo proved that people continue to strive for self-empowerment despite tough economic times.

“As we enter a new year we will move forward with service projects like the construction of houses under the Mass Housing project and the construction of the emergency shelter for the fire brigade. We will capitalise on new projects and opportunities that come our way.”
