Namibia’s new mall will boost employment opportunities


The completion of the $6.7 million shopping mall by the Safland Property Group Namibia and Frontier Property Trust in Otjiwarongo, Namibia, came a step closer to reality when its ground-breaking ceremony took place earlier this month. The project will create employment for nearly 100 people, positions which will be filled mostly with Namibians from the region.

The occasion was attended by the Mayor of Otjwarongo, Hilda Jesaya, Ranga Haikali, chairperson of the Safland Property Services Namibia and Fuastina Caley, the director of education and currently acting chief regional officer of Otjozondjupa.

“No political progress is successful and sustainable without economic development. As Government, in focussing our efforts on the economy, we have always emphasised the role and participation of the private sector in rebuilding our country,” Caley said.

Kallie van der Merwe, chief executive officer of Safland, said the expansion and upgrade of Town Square would house a bigger and better Jet Mart Store, the first Clicks in Northern Namibia, Edgars Active, Fashion Express, a new look Truworths, new concept Mr Price, Exact, Totalsports, Scooters Pizza and Hungry Lion.
