Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform, Anna Shiweda on Friday handed over 988 land hold titles to residents of the Freedom Square informal settle in Gobabis. The Namibia press agency reports that, delivering her keynote address during the ceremony, Shiweda said government’s commitment to this project is to bring an end to informal settlements in the country and urged all beneficiaries to guard their land title certificates jealously and not to sell their land. She added that beneficiaries would have paid a collective amount of N$ 7.1 million for registration fees for a combined 988 plots, but that the amount had been covered by government.
