Swapo-Party vice-president meets party’s Otjozondjupa regional leadership

OTJIWARONGO: Swapo-Party vice-president Hage Geingob met with the party’s Otjozondjupa regional leadership yesterday to discuss their plans for a successful political campaign this year.

Geingob, who is also Namibian Prime Minister, told the Otjozondjupa leadership at the party’s regional office in Otjiwarongo that he intends to visit all 14 regions ahead of the political campaigns for the Presidential and National Assembly elections, which take place in November this year.

He said the party will pronounce itself on when active campaigning will start after its Electoral College takes place in Windhoek from 29 to 31 August this year.

Geingob spoke to the Swapo-Party members on how to go about their political-party campaigns in order to win the elections, saying they should campaign by telling people what Swapo has done for them in the past 24 years.

The vice-president noted that the general public as voters should be reminded of the democracy, peace and infrastructural development which the Swapo-Party had brought to the country.

Geingob, who is likely to be nominated as the party’s candidate for the presidential election, said if he is elected president during the elections, he will see to it that the majority of Namibians have access to housing, enough food, hospital facilities and a conducive environment for their business activities.

Geingob countered that the amendments to the constitution are aimed at strengthening the operations of government, saying he personally held consultative meetings with several political parties in connection with the proposed amendments, adding that the political parties did not object to the proposed amendments during those meetings.
