Commencement of the mass housing project: Rundu street vendors starts marketing and selling their products at construction site

KAISOSI: Street vendors at Rundu are capitalising on the commencement of the mass housing project here by marketing and selling their products at the construction site, situated at the Kaisosi informal settlement on the eastern outskirts of Rundu.

The project finally kicked off here early last month after a land dispute.

The National Housing Enterprise (NHE) appointed the Green Circle Investment Company from Windhoek to construct 318 houses here at a cost of N.dollars 89 million.

The street vendors sell food such as fat-cakes, pap and meat, boiled eggs and drinks like ‘Sikundu’.

There are currently 10 stalls, and the number is set to increase.

A Green Circle Investment Company employee told this agency that 60 houses are expected to be completed by November this year.
