31 October 2019 | Local News

Ondonga king Fillemon Shuumbwa Nangolo has appointed former Oshikoto governor Vilho Kamanya as the new chairperson of the Ondonga Traditional Authority (OTA), replacing the late Peter Kauluma.

The OTA leadership largely remains the same as it was during the reign of the late King Immanuel Kauluma Elifas.

One of the few changes is the appointment of Fillemon Shuumbwa Kauluma as the new senior traditional councillor for Ongula yaNetanga, succeeding his father Peter Shimweefeleni who died earlier this year.

Nangolo became the 19th king of Ondonga after the death of Omukwaniilwa Immanuel Kauluma Elifas in March this year.

In an interview with Namibian Sun, Kamanya said there was no change in the OTA leadership.

“With the new king, the OTA leadership remains the same. There is no change in senior and junior traditional councillors. New appointments were only done to districts that lost their leaders. We also appointed new leaders to assist some districts that are being led by old or ailing people who cannot attend to all the needs of the people,” Kamanya said.

“The king has appointed Ismael Shailemo to assist Secilia Namene at Oshuushe while Gerrard Kambonde is heading a committee that is assisting at Uukwanambwa. With the appointment of Kauluma at Ongula yaNetanga, the king has appointed Kanana Hishoono to assist him. At Oniimwandi the king has appointed Martin Nashandi to replace the late junior councillor Jeremia Nashandi while at Ondangwa he has appointed Lot Kasamane to assist Tomas Nakanyala.”

The OTA senior traditional councillors are Wibard Lindker for Uukwanambwa, Aili Kazimo Petrus and Josef Akawa for Omulondo, Josef Asino for Oniiwe, Naeman Amalwa for Oniimwandi, Anneli Sakaria Mbumba and Kamati Mushaandja for Epale, Secilia Namene and Shailemo for Oshuushe, John Walenga for Ondangwa, Johannes Shondili Amutenya for Onalusheshete, Kamanya for Amuteya and Kauluma for Ongula yaNetanga.

The junior traditional councillors are Fillemon Nambili for Uukwanambwa, Kwedhi Armas Amoomo for Omulondo, Kleopas Iindongo for Oniiwe, Nashandi for Oniimwandi, Tonata Ngulu for Epale, Neema Iindongo for Oshuushe, Tomas Nakanyala for Ondangwa, Kashona Malulu for Onalusheshete, Esra Naikaku for Amuteya and Petrina Armas, Nikodemus Nangolo and Hishoono for Ongulayanetanga.
