Activists Condemn Land Given to Chinese

A group of youth activists condemns the Namibian government's intention to approve the lease of 10 000 hectares of fertile land to a Chinese company

A group of youth activists condemned the Namibian government's intention to approve the lease of 10 000 hectares of fertile land to a Chinese company wanting to grow tobacco for export.

Group leader, Job Amupanda, argues that, "It is our submission that to allocate more land for tobacco than is allocated for food production is a deviation from the policy direction taken by the Namibian government through its Agriculture Ministry, which leans towards eradicating limitations to Namibia's capacity to provide food security and adequate levels of nutrition."

Amupanda, who organised mass applications for urban land by some 25 000 young Namibians to municipal offices last month, distributed his written objections to the media.
