WINDHOEK, 20 JAN (NAMPA) – The DTA of Namibia will in the next two months relocate its head office to Oshakati.
DTA President McHenry Venaani said during the announcement at a media conference here on Monday the strategic decision was taken by their management committee in order to mobilise more support for the party.
“You can only achieve success when you are closer to people,” he said.
Venaani added that the DTA is targeting the Oshana, Oshikoto, Ohangwena, Omusati and Kavango West regions to ensure that no constituency is uncontested in the next elections.
The Swapo party was uncontested in 25 constituencies during the Regional Council and Local Authority elections in November 2015.
“The party (DTA) will not lie idle until the next elections; this is a serious manifestation of our seriousness.
“Swapo has been dominating all our areas. We are going back to reclaim our fair share of our support in those areas.”
Venaani added that the socio-economic imperative is that when the DTA is in the northern regions, Swapo will do more to improve those areas because of the presence of the opposition party.
“Therefore, people will also indirectly benefit through socio-economic benefits via Government programmes,” he stated.
The DTA of Namibia's headquarters were based in Windhoek’s Ausspannplatz area, where it leased an office until the end of December 2015 when the contract expired.
