OKAHANDJA: Red Flag Day commemoration activities under a faction led OvaHerero Paramount Chief Kuaima Riruako are moving at a slow pace here.
Only a handful of people have so far descended upon Okahandja for the event that kicked off at the town yesterday.
When Nampa arrived at the Red Flag Commando Grounds in Okahandja’s !Nau-Aib location today at about 11h00, a very small group of OvaHerero traditional battle troops was already in the area, preparing themselves for the 89th annual Red Flag Day commemoration.
The majority of Red Flag troops currently present in Okahandja today are mainly those that belong to the OvaHerero faction led by Chief Riruako.
Meanwhile, a number of people Nampa spoke to this morning, whose identities cannot be named for professional reasons, are optimistic that the event will be a success, saying more people will arrive at Okahandja in the afternoon and evening hours of today.
