Mayor of Nkurenkuru Town, Heikki Hausiku Ausiku, has urged investors to follow the example set by Government in creating jobs and helping local communities.
“Together we can make Nkurenkuru a prosperous and fast growing town in Namibia,” he said in a recent interview.
Ausiku said the tarring of the Rundu-Nkurenkuru-Elundu road, which started this month, would boost economic activities at the town, as would the Nkurenkuru road to Katwitwi.
He further pointed out that the cost for doing business at the town was very reasonable, and conducive for a variety of businesses activities.
The cost for residential plots is only N$15 a square metre and N$20 a square metre for business plots, while prospective buyers can negotiate the price for un-surveyed and un-serviced land with the town council.
“Nkurenkuru has an SME Park which houses various SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises), including Bank Windhoek, Nampost and others.
“Slowly but surely, NHE (National Housing Enterprise) will construct some houses in our town very soon,” said Ausiku.
