Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila says she is optimistic that the future of Oranjemund lies in the agricultural and the renewable energy sectors and called on Namibians to look into the opportunities that exist at the town and take advantage of such opportunities to develop it as the responsibility to develop the town does not lie with the government alone. “The development of the country should be driven by the people themselves because that is the only way to guarantee sustainability, if we are over-reliant on foreign investments, as much as it is necessary, then the development may not necessarily translate into improved livelihoods and most importantly, if the investor for one or other reason decides to relocate, then we are left with abandoned projects,” she said.
