Minister of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform, Calle Schlettwein has argued that there was no valuation preference in acquiring two farms from a company in which Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila and her husband are shareholders. Speaking at a media conference on Friday, Schlettwein said the market value of the two farms was determined through the Sales Comparison Approach, using 13 recently-sold farms in close proximity of the two farms, to determine market value, as supported by relevant legislation and the Constitution. He further dismissed allegations that the two farms were previously acquired by the Prime Minister’s Company from the State, stating that the farms were acquired from a previously advantaged Namibian and transferred on 28 February 2012.
