Swakopmund – Adolf Kaure

The municipality of Swakopmund and Elize Investment hosted a ground-breaking ceremony for the Mondesa Heights Development at the coastal town on Thursday.

The aim of the development is to provide housing by building new homes in Swakopmund at an affordable price.
A total of 132 units are expected to be complete by early 2020 and more than 230 by end of that year. The development includes a community centre and other amenities as well as recreational additions.

Speaking at the occasion, the mayor of Swakopmund Paulina Nashilundo said that the municipality will continue prioritizing the provision of housing.

“Service delivery remains a critical element on the agenda of the Swakopmund council, as we strive to meet the needs of our community, especially the most sought after commodity, which is housing.”

According to Nashilundo, the development has contributed also job creation which has subsequently had positive repercussions on the economic growth of the town.

“I have been informed that 150 contract jobs have been created for residents of Swakopmund.”

She added that it is evident that the project does not only cater for those who need homes, but will also create employment and consequently contribute towards the growth and economy of Swakopmund.

Speaking on behalf of the deputy minister of urban and rural development Derek Klazen, the governor of the Erongo region Cleophas Mutjavikua said that it was impressive to witness public and private entities working together and making a difference in society.

“In this difficult economic time I find this project as a breath of fresh air. To see the collaboration between the public and private sector for the common goal of making a difference in our beautiful country, is truly inspiring.”

Mutjavikua said that the line ministry supports projects where stakeholders share the common goal that more and more people can own a home.

“We are looking at internal policies to streamline our administrative processes since we want to support projects like these.”
