The State-owned Namibia Housing Enterprise is looking to private partners to boost its housing delivery. The NHE is mandated to deliver housing to low- and middle-income households by undertaking and financing housing projects.

NHE spokesperson Tuafi Shafombabi says the enterprise has come up with an aggressive plan to tackle the backlog
