Meatco nominates new directors

The chairperson of the Meatco Board Martha Namundjebo-Tilahun on Friday convened a Meatco Special Members' Meeting where close to 247 Meatco producers attended the event to nominate new directors of the organisation.

In a media statement issued on Friday, the meeting was necessitated by letter which the Minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, Alpheus !Naruseb wrote to Namundjebo-Tilahun requesting her to convene meetings of the various interest groups for purposes of nominating four persons per eligible interest groups for his further consideration.

In a statement Namundjebo-Tilahun said once these nominations are finalised, the names of the candidates nominated will be forwarded to the Minister for his further consideration.

The Minister will then inform us later during this year or next year who he has intrusted to lead this organisation she said.

The current Meatco Board term comes to an end on 22 February 2020, where they would have served two terms following their extension during 2017.
