OPUWO, 03 DEC (NAMPA) The chairperson of Swapos national leaders assigned to the Kunene Region, Charles Namoloh thanked the regional inhabitants for the trust they have in Swapo.

I am very proud of the Kunene people, he said.

He called on the community to participate in developmental issues to take the region to greater heights.
I wish you all the best, and Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year, noted //Hoebeb.
The Deputy Minister of Gender Equality and Child Welfare, Angelika Muharukua, who was in the region when the results were announced on Monday evening, said Swapos victory in the region was all due to hard work and coordinated efforts.
She applauded the inhabitants for a job well done.
Meanwhile, DTA president McHenry Venaani said after the announcement of the elections results that he was not concerned about the results for the Kunene Region, because he is certain that his party will win back all constituencies in future.
