Minister allocates farm units at Marburg govt resettlement farm to selected beneficiaries

OTJIWARONGO: The Minister of Lands and Resettlement, Alpheus !Naruseb on Friday allocated farm units at the Marburg government resettlement farm to selected beneficiaries.

He said the selection process for the resettlement of the residents of Farm Marburg was not an easy task as the farm had already been occupied by generational farm workers, and more community members were also desperate to be resettled on this piece of land.

Farm Marburg is situated 58 kilometres north of Otjiwarongo near the Okorusu Fluorspar Mine in the Otjozondjupa Region.

The minister issued resettlement letters to the beneficiaries.

!Naruseb reminded the beneficiaries that they are responsible for the maintenance of the farm units, and urged them to utilise the units properly.

He also advised the newly resettled farmers to live in harmony with each other and concentrate on improving their livelihoods.
