WINDHOEK, 29 MAY (NAMPA) – More than one hundred children of the Liberation Struggle have completed civic training at the Kai//Ganaxab Youth Skills Training Centre in Mariental, Hardap Region.
They will on Friday at the Mariental Sports Stadium go through their pass-out parade, which symbolises completion of the two-month course.
A pass-out parade marks the first stage of military training.
Head of Training Programmes at the Ministry of Sport, Youth and National Service, Natangwe Asino told Nampa on Monday the 177 children of the liberation struggle currently at Kai//Ganaxab are the third of their group to complete the training.
Asino said the trainees, who completed the Civic Welfare programme to transform and prepare their minds for them to be patriotic citizens, were committed.
“We were impressed with the discipline of the trainees and their performance was satisfactory.”
Asino said after the pass-out parade, the graduates will complete a skills programme in different fields such as plumbing, bricklaying and carpentry.
The Kai//Ganaxab Youth Skills Training Centre is situated 10 kilometres outside Mariental.
The first group of 170 liberation struggle children graduated in April at the Berg Aukas Youth Skills Training Centre, less than 30 kilometres East of Grootfontein in different areas of specialisation.
The second group of around 247 graduated in early February at the Simon Mutumba Mutumba Police Training Centre in Katima Mulilo in the Zambezi Region.
