WINDHOEK, 17 DEC (NAMPA) - The President of the DTA of Namibia, McHenry Venaani has called on all Namibians to rest and recover during the festive season in order to ready themselves for a prosperous 2016.
In a media statement issued on Thursday, Venaani said the DTA would like all Namibians to enjoy the festive season and allow themselves to rest and regain some energy for surely what seems to be a demanding 2016 ahead.
“This year is steadily drawing to an end. The school year has come to a close and Namibians across the country are similarly getting ready for the festive season, where they will take a break from work and enjoy some much needed rest in the company of family and friends.”
Venaani urged people to enjoy the holiday responsibly and refrain from alcohol and drug abuse, since he said such vices “tear the very fabric that binds society”.
He further urged those planning to travel during the festive season to do so with utmost adherence to road and traffic regulations and with respect and regard for other road users.
The party president said 2016 will mark the first full year under the administration of President Hage Geingob and the DTA remains hopeful that the Head of State and his leadership team will commit themselves to ensure inclusive development and prosperity for all Namibians.
“I wish to call on Government to lay the foundations for sound economic conditions in an effort to promote job creation and address poverty reduction.”
Venaani also noted that 2015 has been an exciting and productive year for the DTA, as the party conducted what it believes to have been a successful regional and local government election campaign.
He said with the given limited resources of the party, the DTA managed to win representation in local authorities in the country where it had none in the past.
In the just ended Local and Regional Authority elections that took place last month, the DTA managed to win 41 seats out of 33 local authorities countrywide.
