Public policy analyst and lecturer at the University of Namibia Rundu Campus, Dr. Gerson Sindano said the veterinary cordon fence known as the Redline will not be moved anytime soon thus the Kavango East Region Farmers Union should focus on other alternatives to market livestock. Sindano made the statement on Tuesday during a two-day stakeholder engagement aimed to develop a five-year strategic plan for the Kavango East Region Farmers Union. The engagement will also look into progress on a proposal made last year into the gradual removal of the Redline. Sindano said while a proposal to move the fence to the Angolan border has been considered in the past, the idea is impractical because of the continuous movement of family livestock across the Namibian-Angolan border. He said the government should rather establish mobile quality assurance offices to ensure the quality of livestock in each constituency.
