Mobile Telecommunications Limited in conjunction with Development Workshop Namibia, will service 707 low-income plots in Okakarara through its corporate social investment. The project in Okakarara now has two extensions in the works; Okakarara Extension 7, which consists of 294 plots at a cost of close to 60 thousand each with water, sewer and electricity, and Hamakari Extension 2, which consists of 413 plots at a cost of N$14 602 per plot with water. This equates to 707 plots for low-income individuals in the town of Otjozondjupa.
