Activist group, Affirmative Repositioning Movement (AR) made a formal offer to buy the Erongo Desalination Plant from Orano Mining Namibia. The plant is estimated to be worth over N$3 billion.

Speaking to the Namibia Economist, AR founder Dr Job Amupanda said they plan on expanding the capacity of the plant which is situated 35km north of Swakopmund and work on bringing water to Central Namibia, particularly to Windhoek.

“We are interested and have made a formal offer to Orano Mining Namibia. The Managing Director has acknowledged our letter (of interest) and committed to come back to us,” Amupanda said.
