Eleven nominees from four interest groups for new Meatco Board
Meatco board chairperson, Mrs Martha Namundjebo-Tilahun announced last week Friday the names of the eleven nominees who will be considered for new board appointments when the current board ends its term on 22 February next year.
Around 247 Meatco producers attended the meeting to nominate new directors for the organisation. This comes after the Minister of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, Hon Alpheus !Naruseb requested the chairperson to convene meetings of the various interest groups for purposes of nominating four individuals per eligible interest group, for his further consideration.
“The names of the candidates nominated will be forwarded to the minister for his further consideration. The minister will then inform us later during this year or next year who he has entrusted to lead this organisation,” Namundjebo-Tilahun said at the nomination event.
The Communal Expert nominees are; Elia Kandjii, Usiel Kandjii, Mushokabanji Mwilima and Jason Tjakazapi; while Commercial Expert nominees are Elton Heyman and Kay-Dieter Rumpf. Expert nominees are Clara Bohitile, Johannes Hamman, Rosalinda Katjivena, Ronald Kubas and Vehaka Tjimune.
The current Meatco board consists of Namundjebo-Tilahun (Chair), Ronald Kubas (Vice Chair), Sophia Kasheeta, Mushokobanji Mwilima, Kay Dieter Rumpf and Israel Ngangane with Diana van Schalkwyk, Silas-Kishi Shakumu and Edwin Dennis Beukes as co-opted board members.
