Coetzee hopes for "enough" rain in 2018 as he exits NAU

Retired Executive Manager for the Namibia Agricultural Union (NAU), Sakkie Coetzee, has said Namibian farmers need a normal to above normal rainy season in order to come out of the crippling financial and productivity mess caused by the previous drought. 

This comes as some farmers in the south, despite the good rains received so far, are still struggling as they remain trapped by the spell of drought induced by the el-Niño whether realised last year.
