Agriculture Ministry plans to install 20 boreholes in Oshikoto

The Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Land Reform’s head of rural water supply and sanitation in Oshikoto, said they plan to install 20 boreholes in the Oshikoto Region early next year. Stevenson Tuukondjele said the boreholes will be installed in the eastern part of the region, where water shortages are experienced such as in the Nehale LyaMpingana, Okankolo, Eengodi and Omuthiya constituencies. Tuukondjele further said the ministry is busy with administrative work for now, and they will start drilling these boreholes early next year, probably around January. He also explained the method that will be used to convert this borehole water to drinkable water.
