27 April 2020 | Politics
The National Unity Democratic Organisation (Nudo) has donated food parcels to the tune of N$10 000 to the health ministry.
The food parcels will be given to the homeless people who are being housed at the Katutura Youth Complex in Windhoek.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Nudo president Esther Muinjangue said the party could not sit idle and criticise the government's plans for handling the coronavirus crisis.
“We thought that as a party we have a responsibility to meet the government halfway,” she said.
Muinjangue said the party would continue to collect resources in order to help the less fortunate outside Windhoek.
“I would like to call on fellow citizens as well as political parties to lend a helping hand to the people in need during this difficult time,” she said.
Muinjangue also criticised those who defy lockdown regulations.
“We are still struggling to adhere to the measures and we need to stick to the rules,” she said.
Health minister Dr Kalumbi Shangula said despite the rivalry between political parties he is impressed that opposition political parties are joining the government in the fight against the pandemic. “This is a display of patriotism at its best and Nudo has shown this by through this donation,” he said.
