RUNDU, 11 OCT (NAMPA) - The DTA of Namibia will hold its policy conference from 21 to 24 November in the Erongo Region.
This follows the successful conclusion of its recent elective congress in Windhoek.
The newly-elected Secretary-General of the party, Vincent Kanyetu Kanyetu, told Nampa on Friday that the policy conference will be held in Swakopmund, and will bring together over 100 party members from the country’s 14 regions.
Apart from reviewing its current policies, the conference will also come up with marketable policies which could be used to attract new supporters, members and sympathisers in view of the country’s Presidential and National Assembly elections next year.
Kanyetu disclosed that a proposal for the establishment of a deputy secretary-general portfolio will also be discussed, while there will also be deliberations on a proposal to make the party’s former long-serving president Katuutire Kaura the DTA party’s honorary chairman.
“This will be the first time that the party will have a deputy secretary-general, and hopefully it will be taken up by a woman,” he enthused.
Meanwhile, preparations for the party’s extra-ordinary conference to elect new coordinators for the now-split Kavango regions will take place after the party’s policy conference at a date still to be confirmed.
The erstwhile coordinator’s position became vacant after Kanyetu was elected as the party’s secretary-general.
