19 June: //Karas (Keetmanshoop)This is not the first investment of this kind into Namibia by Ohorongo Cement, as the company has already invested more than N$ 6.5 million for Corporate Social Investment into the country since its inception. The company is also very proud of the fact that it has a 98.7% Namibian staff complement in such a short time and that it creates additional jobs through support services and downstream activities.

Even though Ohorongo is still an infant within a brand-new industry, it diligently strives to continuously contribute towards Public-Private-Partnerships and support Government initiatives like Vision 2030, Growth at Home and NDP4 to affect change.

The other regions will receive their truckloads of cement throughout the year, pending of the availability of the Governors to receive it.

The next scheduled truck hand-overs are as follows:

  • 8 June: Erongo (in Karibib)
  • 12 June: Khomas (TBC)
  • 17 June: Otjozondjupa (Kalkveld)
