President Nangolo Mbumba is in Katima Mulilo, Zambezi Region, to join the masses in the celebration of the country's 34th Independence Day.

Dr. Mbumba is accompanied by Prime Minister Saara Kugongelwa-Amadhila, Minister in the Presidency Christina ||Hoebes, and Minister of Defence Frans Kapofi.

Before undertaking any other official responsibilities, Dr. Mbumba met with four traditional authorities in the region to introduce himself to them as leaders of the community and custodians of the land and seek their wisdom.

Traditional authorities welcomed the President, pledging their unwavering support for him and the government.

The Masubia, Mafwe, Mayeyi, and Mashi traditional authorities expressed concern with the drought situation in the region, calling on the government to ensure that residents do not die of hunger.

The four traditional authorities also raised concerns about the status of the Katima Mulilo State Hospital as a district hospital, which still refers patients to Rundu, Oshakati, and Windhoek.
