Over 760 000 Namibians have so far benefited from the emergency income grant that government started rolling out in April nationally, to cushion the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on the less privileged. The New era newspaper reports that a total of 765 452 Namibians have so far benefitted from grant, according to finance ministry spokesperson Tonateni Shidhudhu. He urged those who have not yet received payment to be patient, as good progress has been made by the ministry in finalising the verification process. According to Shidhudhu, the ministry has reached its target and delivered beyond paying 739 000 people as initially earmarked.
