OKAHANDJA, 21 JUL (NAMPA) – Chief Sam Kambazembi of the Kambazembi Royal House on Sunday called on fellow Ovaherero people to work hand in hand with other tribes in order to build unity between Namibian tribes.
Speaking here at the Red Flag (Otjiserandu) commemoration, Kambazembi said it is not a mistake that Ovaherero are living in Namibia with other tribes.
“It is not by accident that we are living in Namibia with each other but a blessing for Ovaherero people,” he said.
He said the Ovaherero people should be patient and learn to live with other tribes, adding that they should not separate themselves from other Namibian tribes although they are not part of them.
He said the independence the country is enjoying is the only independence for all Namibians and no other independence is coming for Ovaherero people.
Kambazembi added that if there are misunderstandings between tribes, then the tribe leaders should come together and find a common solution to the problem.
“If we differ at some point, our leaders should come together and see a common destiny for our followers,” he said.
The Red Flag commemoration is an annual event for the Ovaherero people to pay tribute to the fallen heroes and heroines of the Ovaherero.
This year’s event has seen attendance of Ovaherero people from all corners of Namibia as well as from Botswana and South Africa.
