Over 100 youths held a four-day conference to discuss housing and land delivery matters

OTJIWARONGO: Over 100 youths held a four-day conference in Otjiwarongo in the Otjozondjupa Region this week to discuss housing and land delivery matters.

The youths were representatives of various youth organisations affiliated to the National Youth Council (NYC).

The conference, which took place between Tuesday and Friday, came up with various resolutions on matters related to housing and land delivery across the country.

The group spokesperson, Josef Petrus van der Westhuizen told Nampa shortly after the official announcement of the resolutions on Friday that various youth organisations under the NYC were concerned by the lack of serviced residential land in the country.

Van der Westhuizen said prices of serviced land in urban areas have been exorbitantly high due to the demand for land.

He said Namibian youths that just graduated and found employment in Government are amongst the worst affected by the limited availability of land.
