The Rundu Town Council plans to survey two new extensions in Tuhingireni informal settlement here for N.dollars 1 million: ElfriedeGende

The Rundu Town Council (RTC) is planning to survey two new extensions in Tuhingireni informal settlement here for N.dollars 1 million, Head of Town Planning ElfriedeGende said.

Gende told Nampa on Wednesday the council is planning to do the surveying themselves and are starting with Tuhingireni before moving on to other settlements such as Ndama and Sauyemwa.

Planning is already done, however, due to financial constraints council is unable to get surveyors to do the groundwork which is why it is doing the basic part of it by itself, she explained.

One of the two extensions has already been completed and the other is on hold as the council awaits the procurement of new pegs that will be used on site.

Explaining why they are starting with Tuhingireni, Gende said the residents of that settlement collected funds to purchase a transformer to electrify the location.
