OMAGALANGA, 27 MAR (NAMPA) – The Omagalanga community in the Omusati Region held belated 26th Independence celebrations on Saturday.
The celebrations were organised by the Oshikuku Town Council. Swapo Secretary-General (SG) Nangolo Mbumba was the guest speaker at the event.
In his speech, Mbumba emphasised the importance of remembering Namibia’s fallen heroes and heroines who fought for the country’s independence.
“As we are celebrating our country’s independence anniversary, it is important to take stock of our achievements as a nation but we should also ask ourselves why we celebrate the day,” he said.
The ruling party’s SG urged the youth to take their studies seriously so they can help identify means to tackle challenges faced by the country.
He also advised the working class to be efficient and productive at their jobs in order to avoid unnecessary wastage of resources.
“Be exemplary and contribute to the growing demands of our nation. Ask less and do more.”
Mbumba reminded the community about President’s Hage Geingob’s notion that independence comes with expectations, including expectations about education, health and other services. He added that some of these expectations are met right away, while others are 'work in progress'.
“Our long journey towards prosperity begins with you and how we shall prosper as a nation in all aspects that will contribute to the well-being and development of our country,” he concluded.
