If DTA of Namibia elected to power it will ensure that Namibians who cannot afford land are given free land: McHenry Venaani

RUNDU: McHenry Venaani says if the DTA of Namibia is elected into power, it will ensure that Namibians who cannot afford land are given serviced land for free.

Speaking during a DTA rally held at the Dr Romanus Kampungu sports stadium in Rundu on Saturday, the opposition party’s presidential candidate said this will be done through their urban resettlement scheme.

Venaani said the DTA manifesto is the only political manifesto which speaks about giving land to the people through an urban resettlement scheme, adding that the DTA is the only political party which is serious about addressing the land crisis in Namibia.

He then lashed out at some councillors, whom he said are corrupt, and who dish out land to their family and friends.

Venaani further alleged that most land in Namibia is in the hands of the Chinese and other foreigners, which he said is a worrisome trend.

He said the land crisis in the country has reached a point of no return as corruption associated with land is everywhere.
