OKAMBEBE, 29 DEC (NAMPA) – Ohamba (queen) Martha Mwadinomho wa Kristian ya Nelumbu of the Oukwanyama Traditional Authority confirmed that Fillemon Nghipangwa is the new headman of Okambebe village and appealed to the villagers to offer him necessary cooperation.
In a speech read on her behalf at Nghipangwa’s homestead at the village in the Ohangwena Region’s Ongenga Constituency on Thursday, Ya Nelumbu told those present that Nghipangwa was at the same time appointed the head of the Okambebe seat, which is comprised of 13 villages.
According to Ya Nelumbu, Nghipangwa received his appointment certificate as both Okambebe headman and sub-senior headman (seat head) during an official ceremony held at Oukwanyama Traditional Authority office at the Helao Nafidi Town on 15 February this year.
Ya Nelumbu’s pronouncement follows reservations from some Okambebe villagers who questioned the authenticity of Nghipangwa’s leadership, labeling him a self-appointed leader.
“Let us work together as a team, maintain peaceful environment and we must ensure that our children, as the future of this nation, are properly brought up,” Nghipangwa urged his community.
