President Hage Geingob is happy with the progress made in the construction of the Chief Hosea Kutako Memorial Museum and Homestead Shrine in the Omaheke Region.
The construction of the Memorial Museum and Homestead Shrine commenced last year.
President Geingob inspected the site, located 195 kilometers from Gobabis, at the late stalwart's village of Toasis.
The decision to construct the Memorial Museum and Homestead Shrine was taken during the Second National Land Conference in 2018.
The honor is an acknowledgment of values and ideas that the late Kutako believed would unite Namibians and take up the fight against colonial injustices.
Dr. Geingob also paid a visit to Kutako's brother's son, a traditional priest who welcomed him at the family holy fire last year.
Phase one of the construction of the Chief Hosea Kutako Memorial Museum and Homestead Shrine is currently 95% complete.
Omaheke Regional Governor, Pijoo Nganate, says the contractors and architects from the Nexus group are expected to give feedback to the government to set the exact date for the inauguration.
During the ground-breaking ceremony in 2021, President Geingob made it clear that the unveiling would signify unity among Namibians from diverse backgrounds.
The Memorial Museum will showcase the traditional way of life of the OvaHerero and Ovahimba through a living museum and artifacts.
A statue of the late Chief Hosea Kutako will also be erected at the shrine.
