Olufuko center to be cosntructed

Plans are underway for the construction of a centre for the Olufuko Festival, with the master plan already being completed and fundraising efforts ongoing.
Former President Sam Nujoma revealed the plans for the center in a speech read on his behalf during the opening of the Fifth Olufuko Festival on Saturday.
He said a centre should be built to strengthen the ties that would make the festival relevant for current and future generations.
The elder statesman said the center would not only help with the promotion and development of arts and culture, but would also create jobs and generate an income.
There are no permanent structures at the venue where the Olufuko Festival is held annually.
Organisers erect tents and other temporary structures during the festival.
Olufuko is an Oshiwambo term for the initiation of girls between the ages of 15 and 20 into adulthood.
They are amongst others taught how to pound mahangu and prepare traditional beverages.
