June 22 public hearing on genocide remembrance day

20 June 2017 Author  
A motion was tabled in the National Assembly, in April 2016, requesting the National Assembly to discuss and debate and to determine and declare the 28th of May of every year as a National Genocide Remembrance Day in Namibia as it was on this day that all the surviving victims of the war of genocide were set free or released from the concentration camps.
It is against this background that the Committee decided to embark on country wide public consultations in order to obtain the views, opinions and suggestions from the members of the public and interested stakeholders.
The objectives of the public hearings are to consult the affected communities and relevant authorities and to reach a consensus on National Genocide Remembrance Day
The Khomas Region public hearing on this issue will be held 22 June 2017 in Windhoek at the UN Plaza Hall in Soweto, Windhoek at 10h00.
