Popular Democratic Party says the ruling Swapo Party has failed

Popular Democratic Party (PDM) President McHenry Venaani says the ruling Swapo Party has failed Namibia to the point where it has compromised the integrity of national elections.

Venaani, who was speaking during the party's rally here on Saturday, said he refused to believe that Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) reported as having gone missing while in Swapo's care, fell off a trailer.

The missing EVMs, of which one was recovered and is currently in police custody, were loaned to the Swapo Party Elders Council congress held at Outapi in 2017 by the Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN).

Venaani said no person in their right mind would transport such sensitive equipment on a trailer.

The ruling party put the EVMs on a trailer and they have gone missing. Now answer me this; what kind of a thief has an interest in EVMs? he asked.
