MUKWE



Mourners from all over the country gathered at Mukwe in Kavango East to pay their last respects to the former education director and regional secretary of the Swapo Party Elders Council, Alfons Mayavero Dikuua, last Saturday.

Dikuua died aged 66 at his house in Rundu on 19 June.

Speaking at the Shamaghongo Royal Cemetery where Dikuua was buried, Kavango East governor Bonny Wakudumo said Dikuua's death left a vacuum in his family, the two Kavango regions and Swapo.

“I was privileged to have been very close to him at many different occasions. He was humble and a quiet person by nature,” Wakudumo said. A teacher by profession and a former principal at Max Makushe Secondary School, Dikuua served as a deputy director and later director of education of the Kavango Region before it was split in two.



Vision School

The establishment of the Rukonga Vision School in Kavango East, which educates talented disadvantaged learners from across the country, was described as one of his successes as a community leader.

“He was a pillar of strength and hope to many youths. His departure leaves a big void in our hearts,” Wakudumo said.

Dikuua is survived by his wife, Maria Kayana Dikuua, three children and one grandchild.

The burial was attended by works minister John Mutorwa, Swapo Party School rector Marco Hausiku, deputy education minister Faustina Caley and Hambukushu Traditional Authority chief Erwin Mbambo, among others.
