A tribute to Namibia
Cultural Festival ends in style
Perhaps one of the most anticipated Windhoek events, the UNAM Cultural Festival, ended on a high note with Mr and Miss UNAM being crowned last Saturday evening.
The event began last week Wednesday with a Gospel Show at the Khomasdal Campus. This was followed by an official opening the next day, officiated by the Chairperson of the National Council, Hon. Margaret Mensah-Williams, with the theme “Cultural roots for diverse identities”. She delivered a message of tolerance and emphasised that Namibians must retain positive aspects of culture while avoiding the bad.
Throughout the festival, various cultural groups performed while traditional delicacies and cuisines were on offer to everyone. Staff members participated in a competition for best traditional attire, which was adjudicated by the audience in the stadium.
On Friday night, one of South Africa’s newest leading deck spinners, DJ Heavy K and local favourites like the Dogg, Gazza, Sally, PDK, and many others, kept the crowd entertained. They were joined by one of the KFC DJ’s: DJ Chinchilla AKA, the Cockroach Killa.
Rundu Campus host their own cultural festival. Depicted below are some of the special moments captured, at which one of Rundu’s own daughters, Ms Rosalia Martins-Hausiku delivered the keynote address for this year’s Cultural Festival.
