Namibia: 150 Shacks in Kivukiland to Be Electrified

Transforming and uplifting the sustenance of people that live in the informal settlements has been on top of the Tsumeb Municipality's agenda as it currently pursues to electrify an additional 150 corrugated iron-zinc shacks that have been without electricity.

The shacks will be electrified through Cenored's informal settlement electrification programme that has resulted in 266 households being electrified since the programme started.

Seventy-five households at Omotuli compound, 100 at Saamstaan, and 30 at Kivukiland have been electrified and another 61 will soon be provided with electricity at the sprawling informal settlement at Kivukiland.

Kuvikuland is situated on the north-western side of Tsumeb and is inhabited by illegal occupants who number over 8 000 people.

The town's CEO, Alfeus Benjamin, praised Cenored for its valued assistance in electrifying Tsumeb.
