Opposition, media, civil society try to counter Swapo’s domination: Geingob

President Hage Geingob said the opposition, the media and civil society try and counter Swapo's domination in the name of accountability.

Democracy should have a very strong opposition to keep the ruling party accountable but oppositions come and go, he started.

Then they said you need a strong press to hold the government accountable but the press is trying their best to get Swapo down, Geingob continued.

When the press failed, they moved to civil society but who elects us, civil society, said Geingob.

The president made these remarks at the official opening of the ruling Swapo Party's electoral college, known as the 'pot', here yesterday.

Results of the intraparty elections are expected this morning.
