DW Angola — Rent Strike Narrowly Averted in Africa’s Newest Mega Housing Project – Kilamba City Angola
Rent Strike Narrowly Averted in Africa’s Newest Mega Housing Project – Kilamba City Angola
The case study presented here demonstrates the emergence of an Angolan housing market that had largely been dominated by the State to date. Public-private enterprises such as IMOGESTIN are attempting to introduce more market-oriented methodologies in an environment where the State can no longer subsidize the sector as in the past. The emergence of the consumer as an actor in the market is significant. The Kilamba residents are increasingly aware of their rights as citizens and the power of their voices when organized as residents associations, and the importance of the new civil society organization AADIC in defending their interests.
