QUEEN Martha Mwadinomho Kristian Nelumbu of the Oukwanyama Traditional Authority (OuTA) has since this morning been locked in a meeting with her senior advisers at the Omhedi Palace in the Ohangwena Region.
It is alleged that the main item on the agenda is a review of the recent suspension of OuTA chairperson, George Nelulu, which was allegedly discovered to have been unprocedural, and therefore, possibly null and void.
Nelulu was suspended last month after he was accused of unilaterally shifting the border between Oukwanyama and Ondonga with the effect that some homesteads that were previously seen as part of Oukwanyama now fall under the Ondonga Traditional Authority (OTA).
He is also accused of having benefitted, personally, from irregular allocation of land.
The allegations are now being attributed to internal intrigues and factionalism.
Palace sources suggest that the lifting of Nelulu’s suspension is imminent and he might resume his duties as soon as tomorrow.
Nelulu, who has been OuTA chairperson for 20 years, is planning to retire January 2021.
Queen Nelumbu’s secretary, Dineinge Sheya, promised to comment only later, while Nelulu himself was not reachable.
