Namibian cement producer Ohorongo Cement was host to Clemens Kashuupulwa, governor of the Oshana region, who opened the company’s new cement depot in Ondangwa.

The land is owned by TransNamib and the cement company will use the Tsumeb Ondangwa railway for the first time since it was built, according to the Namibia Economist, who hails the project as the first real public private partnership to be given tangible life.

The new depot will supply cement to traders in the Ohangwena, Oshana and Omusati regions. When the railway is extended to Oshikango, the company plans to export cement to Angola. Product supplied from the new depot includes 32.5 grade and 42.5 grade cement,

"It is very pleasing to see Ohorongo Cement being optimistic to continue to commit to capital projects as it will position them well for future endeavours. As for their presence in Ondangwa, I believe it will support entrepreneurial drives in the four Northern regions” said Governor Kashuupulwa.

He added that the partnership between Ohorongo Cement and TransNamib “has proven to us that the northern railway is a good investment by our government that could bring positive changes to this part of the country. Thus, both the public and the private sectors need take advantage of its strategic location and close proximity to regional and international markets.”
