The Deputy Prime Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah has called on Namibians to address the land issue at the upcoming land conference in such a way that it benefits current and future generations.
Nandi-Ndaitwah was speaking at the annual Batsara Cultural Festival of the Mayeyi community at Sangwali in the Zambezi Region on Sunday.
Addressing the gathering, Nandi-Ndaitwah urged Namibians not to allow the upcoming national land conference to divide the nation.
She said Namibians need to come out stronger and more united after the conference, which is going to discuss one of the most important issues, which is land.
Nandi-Ndaitwah further called on traditional leaders to provide land for possible investment opportunities to assist the government in developing the nation.
She also urged communities to support traditional leaders financially where possible, to be able to serve their communities.
The communities of the Mayeyi tribe in the Zambezi Region come together to celebrate their rich cultural heritage.
Also in attendance were the Minister of Gender Equality and Child Welfare and that of Urban and Rural Development.
They were all entertained by different cultural groups with the aim to impart such skills and knowledge to the youth.
