OSHIVELO: Deputy Prime Minister Marco Hausiku has called on the councillor of the Guinas Constituency in the Oshikoto Region, Isack Gomachab, and the Hai-//Om San Community leader at Oshivelo, Max Heibeb, to stop using the community to advance their personal conflict.
Hausiku made the call in the presence of Gomachab and Heibeb during his visit to Oshivelo there on Thursday.
The Deputy Premier was at Oshivelo to inform Oshivelo’s Hai-//Om community members that the government has, through its resettlement programme, acquired Farm Ondera, situated about 30km east of Oshivelo, for them.
Several members of the Hai-//Om San Community complained during the meeting with Hausiku that a personal disagreement between Gomachab (representing the government) and Heibeb (representing the Hai-//Om Traditional Authority) continues to cause disunity among the Oshivelo community.
Gomachab and Heibeb are said to have a personal conflict for many years, and community said the two leaders do not sit around one fire.
Hausiku wants to see Gomachab and Heibeb put their personal vendetta aside when serving the Oshivelo community.
