The environment and tourism ministry has indicated renovations and upgrades of the Etosha National Park fence are progressing well. International relations minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah has said the interest to strengthen cooperation in the area of green or renewable hydrogen is a welcomed development, as Namibia has one of the best conditions for the production of this energy source.

The Otavi town council has entered into payment arrangements with clients who owe it huge amounts to set up payment plans on their outstanding debt. Otjozondjupa is one of the leading food-producing regions in Namibia. To mitigate the mushrooming of informal settlements, the Otavi town council has established a reception area to cater for land development.
