The Minister of Urban and Rural Development Erastus Uutoni has said that the ministry’s projects are still ongoing. Uutoni says he has written a letter to all regional and local authorities to identify land that can be allocated to people. The minister also indicated that they do not provide everything, but give land and help here and there with water, toilets and service the land. According to Uutoni, the ministry has accomplished a lot this year including a collaboration with the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia. The minister told Future Media News that they will continue to help next year.
