Despite encountering a few challenges, such as the short supply of materials and equipment in the northern regions, the steering committee of the third National Skills Competition is optimistic that all will be set for the competition on Tuesday.

Speaking to nbc News, the chairperson of the committee, Tobias Nambala, says the procurement of some materials in the northern regions has been a challenge.

He said some of the equipment was damaged during the transportation process from Windhoek.

However, they have managed to look at different options to ensure a conducive environment for the competitors.

He further extended an invitation to the residents of the Oshana Region and surrounding areas to visit the competition to see, learn, and observe the importance of vocational training and what the sector has to offer.

The Minister of Higher Education, Training, and Innovation, Dr. Itah Kandjii-Murangi, is expected to officiate at the opening ceremony on Monday.
