ECN Voter Registration Officers lack sign language training


The Electoral Commission of Namibia's (ECN) Voters' Registration Officers are not trained in sign language to cater for the hearing-impaired population during the registration process.

ECN's Otjozondjupa Regional Voter Education Officer, Beatrice Sililo-Epuka, says it was only the education officers who received basic sign language training.

Sililo-Epuka was speaking at a stakeholder's engagement meeting at Otjiwarongo that was attended by political party representatives from Swapo, LPM, UDF, ministries, churches, and community members.
