RUNDU, 07 NOV (NAMPA) - The DTA of Namibia has appointed two caretaker coordinators for the two Kavango regions until regional conferences for the party are held next month.
The DTA Secretary-General, Vincent Kanyetu told Nampa on Wednesday that Renhilde Kudumo was appointed as the acting coordinator for the Kavango East Region, while Bonifatius Kashera is the party’s acting coordinator for the Kavango West Region.
The two were appointed with effect from Monday this week.
The DTA has been without a coordinator since the election of Kanyetu, the party’s former Kavango Regional Coordinator, as DTA Secretary-General mid this year.
The two acting coordinators have also been assigned to prepare regional conferences in the regions, which will take place after the party’s policy conference from 21 to 24 November in the Erongo Region.
Kudumo previously served as the party’s secretary in the region for more than seven years and was also the party’s vice-chairperson in the then Kavango Region, while Kashera has been the organiser of the party in the regions for many years.
Kudumo is also serving in the national executive committee of the party’s women’s council.
The regional conferences will elect coordinators, chairpersons, vice-chairpersons, secretaries, treasurers and four additional members for the two Kavango regions.
Kanyetu earlier said the policy conference set for Swakopmund 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.
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 honourary chairman.
The DTA of Namibia turned 36 years old on Tuesday, following its formation on 05 November 1977.
