Comrades, this Year 2017, let us challenge ourselves as leaders, as cadres, as functionaries; to reignite the entire Namibia with the flames of unity and patriotism. Let us rededicate ourselves to eradicate the scourges of poverty, hunger and corruption so that we can build a strong, united and unbreakable Namibian House. Together we stand, divided we fall. One Namibia, One Nation.
SWAPO united, SWAPO victorious, Now hard work!
