Kavango East to strengthen relations with Zimbabwe
13 September 2017 | Government
An agreement is expected to be signed soon in this regard.
The governor of Kavango East, Samuel Mbambo, told Nampa that the agreement was being drafted.
“We cannot sign a MoU without having the blessings of cabinet. It is just a draft which we both looked at and worked out and each one will take a draft to its own government to go through the process as it is usually done,” said Mbambo.
The two parties intend to sign agreement to foster and promote the existing relationship they have.
The parties intend to cooperate in good regional and local governance, exchange technical expertise and capacity building in areas such as financial management, research and development, information technology, waste water management, solid management and strategic planning.
The parties would also like to cooperate on food security, forestry, water management and environmental friendly practices as well as in trade investment activities and socio-cultural exchange.
Mbambo took a 35-member delegation to Mashonaland in June this year to establish areas of cooperation in agriculture.
