Tomas de Mello, Radio Ecclesia’s Margareth Nanga, New Newspapers’ Ana Marly and Zenilda Volola were among the new members elected into office.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr. Solombe pledged the Chapter’s renewed commitment to the principles enshrined in the Windhoek Declaration, stating that he would faithfully accomplish the responsibilities of his term and ensure that the Chapter adhered to its founding statutes.

The ceremony included the investiture of the Chapter’s newly appointed General Assembly Chairperson, Salvador Freire, by his predecessor, Isaac Neney, who further reported on the Chapter’s activities during his tenure.
