FOLLOWING an investment of over $900 million from local banks, PLDH Director, Jacob Nghifindaka has called on civil servants to make use of the available government grants and secure housing at the Osona Village and take advantage of government privileges afforded to them.

Local banks amongst them First National Bank (N$ 347 223 840), Bank Windhoek (N$ 161 624 453), Standard Bank (N$ 197 354 791) and Development Bank of Namibia (N 995 000) make up as the source of financing at Osona Village.

Speaking at the Osona Express launch, Nghifindaka said civil servants should take advantage of this investment and use the available means to secure a house at the Osona Village.

“Many people say Osona is far away from Windhoek but in the next 20 years, Windhoek and Okahandja might become one big City, joined by settlements such as the Osona Village. To curb on the need for transport, we are proud to announce the introduction of Osona Express a daily commuter bus service between Windhoek and Osona Village at prices comparable to public transport in Windhoek,” he said.

Osona Village, is located 55 km north of Windhoek and is one of the fastest growing housing developments in the country.

There are close to 1500 households, with over 5000 residents.
