Defense ministry cautions veterans against unknown groups

The Ministry of Defence and Vaterans Affairs has cautioned registered veterans not to give their information to groups purporting to register veterans of the national liberation struggle for unknown benefits.

In a statement issued on Friday, Senior Public Relations Officer in the ministry, Edson Haufiku, stated that the ministry cautions all registered veterans to desist from associating with those requesting veterans to present their veteran numbers and veteran cards for the registration of unknown benefits.

Haufiku stated that any veteran who avails him or herself and his or her information for this baseless registration does so at their risk.

‘This is not a program endorsed by the Ministry of Defence and Veterans Affairs in particular and the Namibian Government at large,’ he noted.
