Much-anticipated indaba which was to discuss dethroning of Chief Hikuminue Kapika as traditional leader called off

OPUWO: The much-anticipated indaba which was to discuss the alleged dethroning of Chief Hikuminue Kapika as traditional leader, has been called off.

The meeting was planned to take place this coming Saturday at the Okangwati settlement in the Kunene Region, but it was cancelled and postponed to a yet-to-be-set date due to the sudden death of one of Chief Kapika’s Senior Traditional Councillors, Tjanangombe Hembinda, who died on Sunday at the Opuwo State Hospital.

The late senior traditional councillor will be buried this Saturday.

Chief Kapika’s spokesperson, Peihama Tjindunda told Nampa today that all traditional chiefs in Kunene-North had been served with invitations to attend the meeting which was meant to resolve the current chieftainship battle issues.

Tjindunda said they also invited the nominated chief Mutambanda Kapika to attend this meeting.
