Outapi, Omusati Region, Namibia - The Namibian President Dr Hage Geingob officially inuagurated one of Former President Hifikeounye Pohamba’s legacy projects, the Omakange-Ruacana Road project. The project was funded with a loan from the China EXIM Bank to the tune of 420 million NAD.

 

Geingob underscored the fact that as President he believes that “every Namibian, wherever they live, should have access to tarred roads, electricity, water, educations, health and telecommunications”. This, the President says, is an extention of his mandate to lead Namibians down a new road since March 21, 2015.  

 

 

This road the President says “is a road to prosperity, more importantly shared prosperity where no Namibian will feel left out” President Geingob also underlined the fact that this road also marks delivery on one of the election promises the SWAPO party made in November 2014.

 

This road completion unblocks the tourism access for the Kunene region and also makes travel easier for the residents. The Namibian President is on a regional visit with a delegation of senior ministers and his advisors.  Other than officiating at the road opening ceremony the President conducted a site visit to Etunda Irrigation Scheme, one of the key components of the Green Scheme. 

 

President Geingob is expected in Outapi on Thursday for a Townhall meeting with the community and further site visits to selected projects.
