Windhoek Mayor Job Amupanda and members of the City of Windhoek’s disaster risk management division on Saturday assessed flood-prone areas in informal settlements in the capital and Groot Aub, telling the Namibia press agency that the visits were aimed at assessing the situation on the ground, which will in turn enable direct and effective policy implementation.Speaking at the same occasion Windhoek councillor Ivan Skrywer explained that he encountered people who do not want to settle in flood-prone areas but remain there out of fear that if they move to an area on higher ground, their structures will be regarded as new and will be demolished.
