Namibians must continue celebrating the selfless legacy left behind by those men and women who scarified their lives for the political freedom

Namibians and the future generations must continue celebrating the selfless legacy left behind by those men and women who scarified their lives for the political freedom of the country during the liberation struggle.

This call was made by President HageGeingob today during the commemoration of the 2019 Heroes' Day at Otjiwarongo in the Otjozondjupa Region.

The Heroes' Day is an annual commemoration of the first liberation struggle battle that took place at the Omugulugwombashe in the Omusati Region on 26 August 1966, when the South African armed soldiers attacked the People's Liberation Army (PLAN) of Namibia at their base.

He explained that Heroes' Day is more than just a day to remember the gallant heroes and heroines, but also inspires the new generations in the country to build a more inclusive, united and prosperous country.

Geingob said the day further allow all the people in the country to recall the battles at which their brothers and sisters had perished such as at Hornkranz, Ohamakari, Namutoni, Lishora and the battle that took place at Kamenga.
