Nandi-Ndaitwah, at an event held at Otuvemba village outside Opuwo in the Kunene Region, also emphasised President Hage Geingob's call for introspection.
She singled out some of the developmental projects implemented at Opuwo under the Swapo-led government, such as electrification, conservancies and road construction, and mentioned that Opuwo was one constituency before it was divided into Opuwo Rural and Opuwo Urban, but the former is underdeveloped compared to the developing pace of the latter.
She also expressed her gratitude to the nation for giving Geingob and the party another mandate to lead the country's developmental agenda and promised that this was not going to be in vain, as the party will respond to citizens' pleas.
Katupa promised to fulfil his duties if elected, especially by adding value to education and helping develop the constituency.
“The constituency office will seek funds from international organisations to cater for education and address the youth unemployment rate,” he said.
Katupa was elected last month to represent the party in the by-election.
The position of Opuwo Rural constituency councillor became vacant after the resignation of Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) councillor Kazeongere Tjeundo, who contested for a seat in last year's National Assembly election.
