OPUWO: The Governor of the Kunene Region Josua //Hoebeb is expected to officially receive 2 000 bags of maize meal from the Namibia East China Non-Ferrous Investment company on 14 September this year to assist people who are faced with drought in the region.
Coordinator of the Namibia East China Non-Ferrous Investment, Steyn Mbunga told Nampa in a telephonic interview on Friday that the donation is part of their social responsibility to the community of Kunene Region that has been declared drought-stricken, and to meet the government halfway in trying to assist its people.
Mbumuna Muhuka, the personal assistant of the Kunene Governor, confirmed to Nampa that the 2 000 10 kilogramme bags of maize meal had already been delivered earlier this month, and are in a local warehouse ready for distribution.
The handing over was supposed to take place this Friday, but could not materialise due to //Hoebeb being out of the region with other official duties.
The Namibia East China Non-Ferrous Investment recently discovered large deposits of iron ore in the Kunene Region.
It also explores lead, copper and zink at various places in Namibia.
