WINDHOEK, 31 OCT (NAMPA) – The DTA of Namibia will on Saturday officially unveil its rebranded corporate identity and honour its members who have made significant contributions to the party since its establishment in 1977.
The party’s Secretary-General (SG), Immanuel Ngaringombe said at a media conference here Tuesday that rebranding was necessitated to transform the organisation into a party that can carry and deliver on hopes and aspirations of all Namibians.
The party’s new logo and name will be revealed after its extraordinary congress on the same day.
Ngaringombe said the DTA was formed 40 years ago during the then South West Africa to speak to and lobby the international community on the independence of the country from then South African colonisers.
He explained that back then the DTA was an alliance of different tribal political organisations, but “we are now in a new Namibia with new challenges and having a party with alliances is no longer needed”.
The SG said the party’s new name would be aligned with a new Namibia and would be aligned with the party’s mandate to address the challenges of the country and come up with new policies addressing the economic and societal challenges faced in the country.
Ngaringombe added that the DTA, as the official opposition party, has played a role in advising and calling the government to order and representing the country’s minority groups.
