DTA of Namibia denied claims

WINDHOEK: The DTA of Namibia has denied claims that Keetmanshoop mayor Moses Titus was recently called in for a disciplinary hearing for allegedly not participating in last year’s election campaigns.

It is alleged that Titus, who was subjected to an investigation by the party in 2013, was once again called in during the DTA’s first management meeting in Windhoek two weeks ago for refusing to participate in the party’s election campaign last year.

Titus is the only DTA councillor at Keetmanshoop, and is running the council with an opposition coalition consisting of the Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) and the Democratic Party of Namibia (DPN) councillors.

A source close to this agency said the mayor is also accused of allegedly misbehaving during the party’s congress in 2013.

Vincent Kanyetu, the DTA’s Secretary-General (SG) explained in an interview with Nampa yesterday, that Titus was part of a second group of councillors the party’s management called to look at reorganising and planning for the upcoming Local Authority and Regional Council elections later this year.
