Namibia: Women Take the Lead in Omusati


Four women were this week nominated to lead as councillors at Okahao, Oshikuku and Tsandi local authorities in Omusati region.

The four women took up the mayor, deputy mayor and management committee chairperson roles.

Okahao’s Cornelia Iiyambula and Oshikuku’s Julia Endjambi were sworn as mayors, while Okahao’s Julia Katoole was sworn-in as the deputy mayor.

Endjambi retained the mayoral position.

Selma Kadhila is the Tsandi village council chairperson.

At Okahao, Johannes Uushini is the current management chairperson.

Other members of the management committee are Andreas Nekwaya and Aina Amalovu.

The two Independent Patriots for Change (IPC) councillors will serve as ordinary councillors.

Iiyambula, in her acceptance speech, pledged commitment to collectively drive the town’s development forward.

Iiyambula further advocated for good relations with the residents of Okahao Town Council.

She said the council has a responsibility to ensure the community receives quality services amidst critical challenges such as the lack of serviced land particularly for housing development.

“It is worth noting that as elected leaders, we are people’s servants; therefore, we should serve our people at all times and we should be accountable to our inhabitants,” said Iiyambula.

At Oshikuku, Petrus Petrus is the new deputy mayor.

Williams Sheende retained his position as the chairperson of the management committee.

Oshikuku’s former mayor Veronica Mwenyo and Linus Mingeli, a new Swapo entrant will serve as members of the management committee.

IPC’s councillors Rosalia Kalimbo and Petrus Nambinga are ordinary members. Endjambi pledged to strive to lead by example, to be corrupt free – and ensure that collectively, the resident’s wellbeing and living standards are improved.

“It is our resolve to serve our people with humility and a pure head dedicated to serve everyone fairly without discrimination,” said Endjambi.

At Tsandi village council, Kadhila is deputised by Sem Katoma.

Tuuliki Uule, Thobias Shekunyenge and Titus Titus will serve as ordinary councillors.

I started taking CPP early at 60 as needed the cash flow due to failed business. Rather take the CPP than having to borrow on LOC to get by. I am currently working and continued the CPP contributions so getting a nice addition annually for the post retirement benefit to the main CPP benefit. Great work on your blog and enjoy reading it every week for more retirement ideas! Jana Maynord Chaing

I am so disappointed in the TV series. I LOVED the book and so looked forward to the show. I think it fell flat and missed the drama and intrigue of the book. Fayth Isador Nashoma
