Group of like-minded Namibians who are against the secessionism agenda in the Zambezi Region have reprimanded those with this agenda to stop

A group of like-minded Namibians who are against the secessionism agenda in the Zambezi Region have reprimanded those with this agenda to stop, through a press conference in Katima Mulilo yesterday.

In October, a group of people belonging to the banned UDP (United Democratic Party), led by the exiled Mishake Muyongo and the Caprivi Concerned Group (CCG), was blocked by the Namibian Police Force when they tried to demonstrate in favour of separating Zambezi from the rest of Namibia, for they believe that 'Caprivi' is not part of Namibia.

As a result, a group of Namibians who are against the secessionist idea formed their group, led by Charles Siyauya, former chairperson of the Bukalo Village Council.

Speaking at the press conference, Siyauya said that he wants to remind the secessionists that no one elected them to represent all Namibians, nor do they share their fallacy of cutting the Zambezi Region off from Namibia.

He added that this is not a tribal matter but a national concern that requires joint effort to fight the secessionists, and promote investor confidence for a prosperous Zambezi.

Siyauya further recommended to the Government of Namibia and the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees (UNHCR), to enable reintegration and psychological counselling for the returnees from Dukwe, which will make them better citizens who will live productive lives that will contribute greatly to the nation.
