Hundreds of homes in Namibia are going to get electricity connection.

The long wait by prospective applicants on council’s waiting to secure electricity is slowly being shortened as the electrification of about 322 even, which was the stumbling block to award plots to the people in Omuthiya, is envisaged to commence soon.

Hence, by August the town council will appoint a contractor to start electrifying the area. The area already has road infrastructure, water and sewerage lines. A combined 2,800 applicants are on the council’s waiting list.

The tender closed on June 29 for the search a bidders. To select the best suitable bidder and the process might go up to August.

At this stage it is still premature to state when the process can be complete. The contractor will have the final say of how long the project will last. However, the council hopes and want the process to last about six to eight months. Hence, anticipating the completion by March next year.

Once the process of electrifying is complete, they will evaluate the allocation of plots will begin by June/July. As we stand now there is no value as yet attached to the plots, so we still need to evaluate in order to determine how much each is worth.
