The commencement of the year-long rehabilitation of rail between Otjiwarongo and Omaruru is set to create about 400 jobs.
The rehabilitation which is being conducted by D&M following a partnership agreement last year between TransNamib and the company to improve the country’s dilapidated railway infrastructure.
D&M Rail Managing Director Dowie Moller told The Villager this week that the rail rehabilitation exercise which is expected to last for a year has shown potential to create more jobs for the local men and women in the areas of Kalkveld, Omaruru and Otjiwarongo.
 “Railway industry in the country is growing and there is potential to have more of the goods in the country being transported by rail. Namibia remains the only country where government plays a significant role in maintenance and sustainability of the railway network, without funds from donors. That remains an advantage and also creates significant channels for growing the job market,” Moller said.
To date 400 Namibians within the area have benefited from the jobs on offer, where the Ministry of Labour is involved in the recruitment process.
