RDP says it is surprised to learn that DTA of Namibia choosing to fight at a time when opposition parties are expected to work together and face ruling Swapo-Party

WINDHOEK: The Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) says it is surprised to learn that the DTA of Namibia is choosing to fight it at a time when opposition parties are expected to work together, and face the ruling Swapo-Party.

The RDP Secretary for Information and Publicity, Jeremiah Nambinga, reacted in a media statement issued today to a recent article in which the DTA claims it wants to unseat the RDP in the upcoming national elections to reclaim official opposition status.

The DTA mentioned in the article published some weeks ago that once it secured N.dollars 10 million needed for its campaigns and mobilisation activities, it was confident to become the official opposition once again.

The DTA was the country’s official opposition since independence in 1990 until the RDP unseated it in 2009.

Nambinga said it would like to inform the leadership of the DTA that the RDP was formed on the basis of true democracy, the rule of law and justice for all.

The RDP, he added, was also formed to rescue the Namibian people from the claws of a failing government led by the Swapo-Party, which has lost its vision and is messing-up the country.
