SWAPO has brought development

By Professor Peter Katjavivi
SWAPO Party held a public consultation meeting that was addressed by the Hon. Prof. Peter H. Katjavivi, MP and SWAPO Party Chief Whip in the National Assembly.

The meeting was attended by all the party functionaries from this constituency, including, the Hon. Councillior Kaujeua, who is also a member of the National Council and Ms. Susan Hikopua, the SWAPO Party Regional Coordinator, along with members and supporters of the party. Professor Katjavivi, recalled the significant role played by Okandjira during the general uprising by the people of Namibia against German occupation and oppression.

He stressed how fitting it was that the SWAPO Election for the Omatako-Ovitoto Constituency was held at Okandjira. He further elaborated on the parallels between the landscape then and today where he indicated that as the nation progresses forward, we should reflect on the sacrifices made then, and use them to ensure that we do preserve the hard-won freedom and independence so as to prevent retrogression.

A fact that cannot be denied is that SWAPO Part has been responsible for the progress our country has made since independence. The democracy, unity, peace and stability that our country enjoy today have all been founded on SWAPO Party ideals and are the hallmark of SWAPO Party's achievements.

Professor Katjavivi highlighted Namibia's achievements in terms of infrastructure developments in form of roads, bridges, health education, etc. He also spelt out the fact that there are projects in the pipeline that the Government would like to have realized in due course. He indicated that he is aware as a person who hailed from Ovitoto that the overcrowdedness of the population in this part of the country is a matter of great concern. However, he emphasized that people should be patient; that the Government is aware and the matter is enjoying attention in the relevant ministry.

On the issue of the bush fire that recently occurred in some parts of Ovitoto, having been sparked off by live military exercises by our Defense Forces, the Professor reassured the community through this public meeting that he reiterated the call made earlier by the Traditional Leadership of the area to the Ministry of Defense, calling for all necessary measures to be put in place to prevent a similar reoccurrence. Professor Katjavivi concluded with the following words: "let us work hard to ensure a SWAPO Party victory come 28th November".

He also called for SWAPO members and supporters to continue to work for the unity of the Party. He has this to say, "Let SWAPO Party continue to be a home to all comrades, young and old, male and female, no matter what race or colour they belong to".
