OMDis Town Transform Agency “OMDis” was established in August of 2019 as an S21 Company by NAMDEB Diamond Corporation with the sole purpose of proactively accelerating the diversification of the Oranjemund economy, alongside the efforts of other town stakeholders. The goal of the agency is to transform the Town’s economic future beyond mining.
A town like Oranjemund, situated in the renowned Sperrgebiet and with all its rich history and secluded ambiance, has an incredible story to tell. The town was built in 1936 and existed exclusively to serve the diamond mining industry.
