Responding to rumours that there will be no further public consultations and scope to engage with authorities regarding the so-called Final Draft of Namibian Equitable Economic Empowerment Bill, and that tabling the bill in the Namibian parliament is now considered a matter of urgency the Construction Industries Federation of Namibia has once again called for further opportunity for stakeholders to be engaged and give feedback on the latest draft of the Bill. The CIF has urged politicians and leaders to rethink current policies in order to fight poverty and achieve a more equitable social-economic environment, as the body says there might be alternatives or best practices to achieve the same.
