Shixwameni retains presidency of the APP

The All People's Party (APP) re-elected Ignatius Shixwameni as their president during a three day congress held at Rundu over the weekend.

The congress started on Friday and ended on Sunday.

ShumbwaNangolo is now the vice president of the party and replaces MadalaNuuyoma who lost the position to him.

Vincent Kanyetu remains the Secretary-General (SG) of the party while Maria Kamutali was elected as treasurer.

Linus Mutjila is the national chairman of the APP with DindoBenedictus as his vice.

Shixwameni told Nampa on Monday he feels duty-bound and honored to still be the president of the party for close to nine years now.

I am happy to work with the members as I have done over the years. So, I look forward to working with everyone not just party members but everybody across the party line in the country, he said.

The APP leader said his priority now is to strengthen the party, consolidate it and make it grow.

The second priority he pointed out is to work hard for the upcoming national elections taking place later this year that would see them work hard during campaigns to gain more seats for parliament.

So our focus now is going to be on the elections and election campaigns throughout the country, he stated.
