07 March 2019 | Local News
Tyova said Nghaamwa always goes beyond the call of duty to serve inhabitants of his region, and that he has done many good things, including renovating schools and providing water and electricity.
Last year Tyova was appointed Cunene governor, replacing Kundi Paihama.
He paid a courtesy visit to Nghaamwa yesterday, accompanied by his regional and local authority representatives.
He said as a new governor he would like to tap into Nghaamwa's experience to help him become a good politician and servant.
“Just recently we heard that Nghaamwa used his own money to renovate a roof at Ndilula Naikaku Primary School. This is just one of the many good things I heard he has done on his own. He has provided water and electricity to communities,” Tyova said.
“As a new governor I would like to make use of this visit to learn from Nghaamwa. He has more experience in the exercising of regional functions and has led with his good example.”
Tyova said Namibia and Angola have traditional solidarity, which was fostered during the colonial era and cemented via collaborations after independence.
He said Namibia has a level of social development that youth can look up to.
He said he would like to emulate this good example to ensure the people of his region also have the same benefits.
“It is our political obligation to facilitate trade and social exchanges, in order to strengthen the links that bond the countries together, to ensure good economic and trade exchanges. Togetherness in development will guarantee us mutual development and the exploration of advantages,” he said.
Nghaamwa said Ohangwena has a population of 228 385 inhabitants, as per the 2011 population and housing census. The region has 266 schools and three district hospitals, 33 clinics and 142 health outreach points which can also cater for Angolan nationals.
He also took Tyova on a tour around Eenhana to show him some developmental projects.
The political administrative area of the Cunene Province encompasses six municipalities, 20 communes and 237 villages, with an estimated population of 999 800 inhabitants.
