28 years of service to the United Nations

At a recent Town Hall held for United Nations (UN) Namibia staff, UN Resident Coordinator Kiki Gbeho honoured Mr Abisai Kapolo from UNICEF Namibia with a long service award.

Fondly referred to as Tate Kapolo, the award was in lieu of his 28 long years of service. He was part of the United Nations under Resolution 435, witnessing Namibia’s Independence as part of the organization and later transitioned to working with UNICEF Namibia.

Gbeho lauded Tate Kapolo as a true champion of human rights who holds the UN value in the highest esteem.

An emotional Tate Kapolo dedicated his accolade to his mother and thanked the UN for allowing him to serve and execute its in Namibia.
