WINDHOEK, 07 DEC (NAMPA) – The Swapo-Party will get new headquarters, party president Hifikepunye Pohamba announced on Thursday.
Speaking during the 25th anniversary of Kalahari Holdings here, he said the party’s leadership decided to get a new building, because the current one, situated opposite the Katutura State Hospital, is getting smaller as the party has to carry out many duties.
“At headquarter level, we decided to build the party’s headquarters as a dignified building,” said Pohamba, who is also Namibian president.
Pohamba did, however, not reveal where the building will be erected or when construction will begin, as this is still an idea.
“We therefore appeal to party members, supporters and sympathisers to make contributions to this noble venture,” he added.
The president also congratulated the Kalahari Holdings team for a great job it is doing in keeping the Swapo business entity functioning.
“We have trust and confidence in your ability to take Kalahari Holdings to greater heights of success,” said Pohamba, while urging the team to remain focused in order to achieve more successes for the benefit of the party and its broad membership.
Kalahari Holdings was founded in 1989 as a Swapo business entity focusing on transportation, farming, property development, security, hospitality and entertainment.
Pohamba also thanked all Swapo supporters who cast their votes on 28 November 2014 to make sure the party wins the Presidential and National Assembly elections.
