Crowds gather for Ongwediva opening

Large crowds formed outside the gates at the Ongwediva Trade Fair this week, eagerly waiting to be admitted into the showgrounds. The organisers told the Economist they expect visitor numbers to be up compared to last year. This became evident during the week as the queue at the gate grew longer every day. This year, there are 25 more exhibitors than last year. According to Jackson Mumba, attendance picked up on Thursday afternoon for the official opening ceremony. (Photograph by Jackson Mumba)
