The land surveying of the Kanaan C informal settlement in Gobabis is projected to incur a total cost of N$900 000. This is according to Jacob Tjinae, the secretary of the Kanaan C Upgrading Committee, who said that the specified amount will be sourced from the over 4 400 households residing in the settlement. Each household is mandated to make a contribution of N$ 210. Tjinae said the community will have to cover these expenses from their own resources. According to Tjinae, they need half of the required amount for commencing the land surveying. The contributions have thus far nearing half a million and the community has called on the municipality to extend its support.
