Ondjiva – The German government has released 5.9,580 US dollars for the project of support to peasants families in Ombadja Municipality, southern Cunene Province, whose programme is being implemented by the Association for Rural Community Development (Mafiko).

Speaking to ANGOP, Mafiko’s co-ordinator for agriculture, Miguel Arcanjo Molunda, said the project that started last August aims at supporting the families grouped in agricultural associations based in Ombadja and whose land plots are located along Cunene river.
