OSHAKATI, NAMIBIA, The government of South Africa’s Limpopo Province has signed memorandums of understanding (MoUs) with the regional (provincial) councils of namibia’s Oshana, Ohangwena, Omusati and Oshikoto Regions at Oshakati, the capital of Oshana Region.
A member of the Executive Council of the Limpopo provincial government, Seaparo Charles Sekoati, signed the MoUs with the chairpersons of the Oshana Regional Council, Gerson Kapenda; Ohangwena Regional Council (Erickson Ndawanifa); Omusati (Modestus Amutse) and Oshikoto (Samuel Shivute), here Thursday.
The MoUs seek to grow the economy of Limpopo province and the Namibian regions by focusing on the tourism sector and improving on health, agriculture, mining, education and skills development.
Sekoati said Limpopo is ready to start sharing its experience in livestock disease management, especially in combating foot and mouth disease.
“Appreciating common features and challenges between Limpopo and the northern regions of Namibia, discussions with the authorities from the four regional councils will start exploring possible socio-economic ties for mutual benefit,” he said.
He said the signing of the MoUs was an affirmation of the working relations between Limpopo and northern Namibia to develop and improve their economies.
Oshana Governor Clemens Kashuupulwa said the signing of the MoUs will help Limpopo and the four northern regions of Namibia strengthen existing relationships and establish fruitful partnerships in the areas such as economical, environmental and ecotourism development.
The 15-member Limpopo delegation returns to South Africa on Friday.
