WINDHOEK: The Red Flag Commemoration event which was set to take place at Okahandja this weekend is likely to now be held in Windhoek next weekend.
Advisor to the Ovaherero Traditional Authority, Dr Hoze Riruako made this announcement at the Commando Hall in Katutura yesterday.
Hundreds of people flocked to the hall, with women mostly clad in red, black or green traditional dresses, while some men and boys paraded there in the by now familiar military-style brown uniforms.
Meanwhile, at the same occasion, patron of Commando Number One at Okahandja, Advocate Vekuii Rukoro called for financial contributions from group members as he said they will now approach the courts in their fight to go ahead with the commemoration event next week.
It was initially scheduled to take place at Okahandja in the Otjozondjupa Region this weekend.
The Namibian Police however intervened between the two rival OvaHerero factions which were set to attend the event after alleged threats of violence, and announced that the festivities had been cancelled.
