WINDHOEK: The Democratic Turnhalle Alliance (DTA) Youth League on Wednesday announced that its fourth National Congress will take place at Oshakati from Friday to Sunday.
At a press conference held at the party’s headquarters here, DTA Youth League Secretary-General Leslie Tjiriange said the congress is aimed at discussing the party’s future and it will also elect new office-bearers.
He said 110 party members from all over the country will attend the congress. Seven delegates from each region, plus executives are expected to be in attendance.
The positions that will be contested include that of Secretary-General, Vice Secretary-General, Secretary for Information and Publicity, Secretary for Education, and Secretary for Non-Governmental Organisations, amongst others.
“We decided to host the fourth national congress in Oshakati as it has the second largest population, just after Khomas. We are also thinking of decentralising the event to other regions as all previous congresses were all just held in Windhoek,” Tjiriange said.
Tjiriange, who has served in his position as SG of DTA Youth League since 2006, said in his view the youth of Namibia are still not well looked after, particularly by the present government.
He added that the congress will also provide a platform for the planning of the way forward.
The congress will be official opened by DTA Vice-President Phillemon Moongo and DTA Secretary-General McHenry Venaani.
The congress will be held under the theme “Thinking Beyond”.
