President Hage G. Geingob did not attend last year’s Damara Cultural Festival because it was discovered that Chief Justus Garoeb is not recognised under the relevant laws of Namibia as a traditional leader.

In a statement to the press, state house today said, “That being true, the President was unable to proceed to the planned festival”.

State house also recommended that the advisors and leaders of the traditional authority that Chief Justus Garoeb has jurisdiction over need to file the required application with supporting documents to the Ministry Urban and Rural Development.
