A NEW multimillion dollar shopping mall, currently under construction at Khorixas, is expected to create hundreds of new job opportunities once it opens its doors to the public.
Helena Uugwangwa, the project manager, said the first phase of the new project will be completed soon and added that the cost of the mall is approximately N$23 million.
“We are expecting the first phase of the mall to be completed towards the end of November. If we are not able to achieve it, then we are expecting it to be done by the beginning of February next year. We are positive that the first phase will be done before end of February next year and then construction of the second phase will start,” she said.
She added that construction is well underway and the mall is being constructed at the open space as you enter the town of Khorixas.
“The site was chosen like that because it is the most suitable selected by the town council for the state of the art mall,” she said.”
Uugwangwa said that the project will help boost the economy of the town and nearby towns in and around the region. She added that the construction has resulted in the employment of a multitude of Kunene Region residents.
