Namibia’s biggest trade fair cancelled due to rising COVID-19 cases

Namibia’s biggest trade fair which is the Ongwediva Annual Trade Fair (OATF), has been cancelled for the second consecutive year due to rising COVID-19 cases.

Jackson Muma, the OATF spokesperson said this in a statement on Wednesday.

He said that the decision to cancel the event was made to protect the health and safety of visitors, employees, exhibitors and other stakeholders.

“The heightening risks and overwhelming concerns about COVID-19 served as a scale for the OATF not to proceed with the fair during such an unprecedented global situation.

“A fund-raising gala dinner and official launch of the trade fair, which was scheduled for this coming Saturday, has also been called off due to restrictions on public gatherings,’’ he said.
