Some regions did not benefit from the N$100 million drought donation made by the South African government to Namibia in 2014, a parliamentary committee has found. The New Era newspaper reports that standing committee chairperson Sipapela Sipapela who last week tabled a report on their findings revealed that the project faced challenges such as lack of control as the contractors were from South Africa, hence, the failure of most regional councils to control and monitor the progress of the project. The relief package for Namibia, which was announced by former president Jacob Zuma during a two-day state visit in November 2013, was only approved by South Africa’s government in October 2014.
