Ondjiva — The residents of Ondjiva City, chief town of Cunene Province, defended last Tuesday the need for the local government to create more museums with the aim of making available for the new generation material testimonies on the life of residents in the region.

Speaking to ANGOP, about the importance of museums, the interviewees stressed that the museums provide to new generations the habits and customs of local people, thus, encouraging them to preserve this artefacts and retrieve moral values.

To University student Belarmino da Costa, the projection of such an infrastructure will help in the investigation works and provide material and scientific artefacts for the younger generations.

"The creation of a museum in the region should be one of the priorities of the local government, because it informs the new generations about the great figures of the homeland, such as the king of Kwanhama people, Mandume Ya Ndemufayo, who was a great warrior in the battles for the defence of his people", he added.
