Mbumba urges old age home residents to vote

President Nangolo Mbumba urged residents of the Katutura Old Age Home to register for the upcoming elections when he visited them on Thursday.

The visit was part of Mbumba’s tour of Katutura’s Wanaheda industrial stalls and Herero Mall.

The president was accompanied by the ministers of health and social services, and industrialisation and trade, as well as representatives of the City of Windhoek.

The Katutura Old Age Home is one of the oldest homes for senior citizens in Windhoek.

Mbumba said senior citizens believe in democracy and that the government strives to ensure a peaceful country for them and their children.

He urged residents of the old age home to register when the Electoral Commission of Namibia’s officials visit the old age home in the coming weeks.

The Office of the President also donated blankets to the old age home.

Peter Sello, a 62-year-old resident of the old age home for the past year-and-a-half expressed gratitude and appreciation for the blankets during winter.

“We are thankful for the blankets in this cold winter season,” he said.
