Ondjiva - At least 187 flood victim families in southern Cunene province previously squatting at sheltering centres were on Thursday provided with new houses on the outskirts of the provincial capital, Ondjiva, during a ceremony chaired by the provincial governor, Antonio Didalelwa.

Addressing the occasion, the provincial governor said the drama of hundreds of families affected by floods that hit Cunene in the last four years has come to an end.

According to him, today there is reason for joy and reward after the time they had to await accommodation.

This is the third phase of the process of delivery of houses to flood-hit people in the region.
