"To the athletes whatever sports you are doing, don't stop training. You don't want to be caught off guard when everything comes to normal. Keep fit and keep safe " Tjongarero said.
Tjongarero, who was promoted to the level of a Minister after serving as a deputy in the same portfolio, is thankful of the President for the trust bestowed on her.
"I can just say to the President, thank you for the trust bestowed on me. It will be joined effort from me and the team. We will do our utmost best to deliver" Tjongarero said. Tjongarero was a netball player and popular administrator before becoming the President of the Namibia National Olympic Committee in 1997.
