Rumpf appointed to Meatco board

05 June 2019 | Agriculture

Agriculture minister Alpheus !Naruseb has appointed Kay-Dieter Rumpf as the director representing the interests of commercial farmers on the Meatco board.

Rumpf's appointment came into effect on 20 May and will end on 15 February 2020.

According to a statement issued by Meatco, Rumpf is a commercial farmer at Farm Cook No. 239 in the Omaheke Region. He is the director and co-owner of a Namibian charcoal packaging plant and export company, and was involved in the local and southern African agricultural sector as vice-chairperson of the Animal Health Consultative Forum from 2015 to 2016.

He further holds an N5 diploma in mechanical engineering, obtained from the Benoni Technical College in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 1991 he obtained a qualification as a fitter and turner artisan at the Atlas Aircraft Corporation in Johannesburg.

!Naruseb expressed his confidence and trust in the ability, commitment, fairness and professionalism of Rumpf, in terms of discharging his national duties and responsibilities as a member of the Meatco board. Rumpf's appointment comes after the resignation of Stefanus Oosthuizen, who was the commercial representative on the Meatco board after receiving the most votes amongst three other nominees during a nomination process that took place at a Meatco special members meeting on 26 October 2018.
