The Christian Democratic Voice (CDV) and the Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) have joint forces through a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to support its candidate, Mike Kavekotora at the upcoming National Assembly and Presidential elections.

The MoU was signed on Thursday by the two political formations and #146; secretary generals and in the presence of the leaders and supporters at the RDP head office.

Speaking at the occasion, CDV President Gothard Kandume said RDP is in a better position to address the land issue and commended their plan for the education sector as well as the economic recovery plan especially for the disgruntled youth.

The home affairs and immigration policy of RDP will be best to have proper immigration controls and good citizenry. Also, the international communities have lost interest to invest in Namibia because they regard it as a second income country, Kandume said.

He added that he is satisfied with the political ideology of the RDP therefore agreed upon the formulation of the coalition ahead of the elections on 27 November.

Speaking at the same occasion, Kavekotora said there is a need for a change in the political sphere and leadership of the country to rescue Namibia and grow the economy.

The current leadership does not represent the needs of the people but they are the sole and authentic representatives of the chinese and the elite.

CDV, which was established in 2014 and is rooted strong in christian values has a membership base of 8000.

Kandume indicated that he was approached by two other political parties, Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) Landless People's Movement (LPM), however he was not satisfied by their proposals.
