Otjozondjupa Governor James Uerikua urged the voter registration officials of the Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) to uphold the values of the institution. 

Uerikua made the remarks when the ECN officials visited his office, pledging support to the officials to ensure a smooth and successful registration process.

The general registration of voters is scheduled to start from the 3rd of June until the 1st of August.

"Your core values of professionalism, accountability, and responsibility, and ensuring that whatever you must do is in the best interest of our country, You will be intimidated wherever possible. Try to restrain yourself and ensure your professionalism. Wherever you feel and think that there is any threat to your life or to anything, let the police be informed. Let the authorities be informed for us to respond accordingly." 

Registration points have also been identified in each constituency.

Tsumkwe and Okakarara will have the highest number of registration points, at 118 and 146, respectively.

Grootfontein will have 37 registration points; Okahandja 39; Omatako 59; Otavi 39; and Otjiwarongo will have 28 points.

Regional Voters Education Officer Beatrice Sililo-Epuka urged businesses and offices in Otjiwarongo to open their premises for voters' education.

"But they are declining our appointments for us to just share the information. We know they are experts, but at least I know that by the end of our presentation, they will learn one thing or more that they were not even aware of."
