President Hage Geingob has called on traditional leaders to lead in unity and harmony, stressing that 30 per cent of his time is spent on traditional disputes and infighting. Speaking during a courtesy visit by the leader of the Ondonga Traditional Authority, Fillemon Nangolo and his delegation at State House, Geingob said that Namibia is a diverse country with different ethnic groups, and traditional leaders should therefore contribute to the development of the country on unity and diversity. Geingob’s call follows recent media reports that a faction of the Ovaherero Traditional Authority warned the Ministry of Urban and Rural Development that they will not accept interference in its affairs after the ministry did not recognise Mutjinde Katjiua as the Ovaherero paramount chief while endorsing Chief Vipuira Kapuuo, who is the chairperson of the chief’s council.
