Namibia is working on its infrastructure from Walvis Bay to the Caprivi Strip and Katima Mulilo to promote trade in the region.
There is already a well-used Trans Kalahari Highway between Walvis Bay and Gaborone, Botswana. Now Namibia is concentrating on the Trans Caprivi Highway to Zambia.
In a recent report, Namport has donated N$700,000 for construction of a school hall at a local school in Katima Mulilo.
Namport said it is committed to capacity building and skills development since a country can only be as developed as the capacity of its human resources.
As trade improves between African countries and we all become richer there is going to be more trucks plying these major routes. My main concern, of course, is that all these trucks on the Trans Caprivi Highway are going to come through Livingstone. We really have to have a ring road to save our town.
