WINDHOEK, MAY 22 – Following a congestion debacle that saw scores of revelers “jump over gates and crawl under fences” due to inadequate entry points during the Kasi Vibe Volume 5 edition earlier this year, organisers have moved to secure two more entry points to ensure easy access for the follow-up.

“At this sixth edition of Kasi vibe, slated for the 31 May to 2 June 2019 at the Dr. Sam Nujoma Stadium, we are bringing you an even bigger and best experience with an expanded venue which will have three entrances, an exhibitor’s only entrance. We have upped the game, security will be very tight and we will be working together with the Namibian Police and the City Police respectively,” said Salmi Shigwedha, during the launch yesterday in Windhoek.

Salmi Shigwedha says security will be beefed up, as well as more entry points to provide ease of access to people who wish to attend the volume 6 edition of Kasi Vibes

Kasi vibe festival remains a platform of choice to upcoming entrepreneurs, start-ups and SME’s, and this edition received over 2000 entries from entrepreneurs who had their eyes set at exhibiting their wares.

“Kasi Vibe Festival reiterates its commitment to Nurture and develop a platform for the community members to engage in business while Promoting awareness about the importance of entrepreneurship and business development, she said, adding that “Kasi vibe will continuously foster and promote a lifelong interest of business and entrepreneurship not only as profit generating activities, but also as a means of creating multiple economic hubs and building sustainable communities.”

This festival has grown and as a result attracted attention countrywide, while each edition sees 10 stalls given away at no cost to innovative Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

“We are having 200 stalls on the venue. Tickets are N$ 50.00 in advance and N$ 60.00 at the gate. The Kasi vibe festival management highly values your usual cooperation, we continue to learn from past experiences and therefore encourage you to give feedback on your experiences, continue tweeting, keep posting and see you at the sixth edition of Kasi Vibe festival.” – musa@namibiadailynews.info
