Namibians will this year return to the polls to cast their votes for Presidential and National Assembly elections.

Pledges were made by business people, fishing companies and individuals.

Speaking at the gala dinner the Chairperson of the Swapo leaders assigned to the //Kharas Region, Bernhardt Esau, urged all party structures to campaign door to door to get voters to vote the Swapo party.

My call is to all the structures especially the youth league, trade unions who are affiliated with the party such as Mines Workers union to mobilise the people to vote for the Swapo party and President Hage Geingob, he said.

Esau said the party still focuses on peace, stability and prosperity adding that the party must rally the people around the manifesto because it will be the social contract between the Namibians and the party.

He added that the National Assembly and presidential manifesto will be lunched soon by President Geingob.

The chairperson said ahead the election the regional structures should come up with proper planning and strategies for the campaign with voter's education as the centre of the campaign.

We must make sure we take ownership of the campaign and not see it as a campaign for the president and those who are on the parliament list but is a campaign for the party, he noted.

Esau said funds raise will support the party in achieving its developmental objectives which is to create jobs, fighting poverty, promote greater equality, prosperity and growth within the region and Namibia at large.
