WINDHOEK, 09 MAY (NAMPA) – Namibia’s Founding President, Sam Nujoma will on Saturday hand over the recently completed clinic at the Etunda Trust Farm to the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS).
The handover will be done as part of Nujoma’s 88 birthday celebrations that will be held at his farmhouse near Etunda in the Otjozondjupa Region.
Addressing a media conference here on Tuesday, Swapo party Secretary-General (SG), Nangolo Mbumba said Nujoma’s birthday falls on 12 May, but the handover will be done the following day.
Minister of Health and Social Services, Bernard Haufiku will receive the clinic that will benefit about 200 people.
Construction of the clinic began in 2014, along with a school that is still being built.
Nujoma donated the land from his farm in 2013 and undertook the construction of a clinic and primary school to cater for farming communities in the surrounding areas.
“Since his retirement, Nujoma has embarked on various projects in order to contribute towards the attainment of our development goals,” said Mbumba.
The party SG said Namibia’s first president wishes to dedicate his 88th birthday to the school and clinic’s completion, even though the school is not yet complete.
Nujoma was president from 1990 to 2005.
