Swapo Party Vice President (VP) Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah has assured the party’s readiness to deliver the much-needed services to the people of Swakopmund and Erongo Region in general.

Nandi-Ndaitwah was speaking at the party’s star rally for the upcoming Swakopmund by-elections at the coastal town on Saturday.

“I want to assure you that Swapo acknowledges the importance of economic growth to ensure that we have addressed the challenges we are facing, such as unemployment which is mostly affecting the most active members of our society, particularly the youth, among others.

The government has put in place clear frameworks that will ensure our economic recovery from the several economic strains which have disrupted all our economic activities,” she expressed.

The party’s VP added that by making sure that Swapo has retained the Swakopmund constituency, the party will ensure that these programmes are no longer disrupted as was the case before.

Nandi-Ndaitwah emphasised that the party’s candidate Nehemia Salomon is more than capable to retain the constituency back under Swapo’s leadership.

“He has all the necessary skills which will end the stagnation that Swakopmund has suffered since a serious mistake was made.

Swakopmund and Erongo Region are very important to this country. We should not allow our trade cooperation to be controlled by those who do not know where we have started and that is why we should make sure that Erongo is under Swapo.”

Meanwhile, Salomon said that since the takeover by another party over the past two years, there have been no tangible developments within the constituency and that Swapo is ready to change that.

“We should be mindful that for us to get this constituency back, we should ensure that we have the right voting cards and make it on time to the polls to vote for the right candidate which is me.

We ought to ensure that the future of our residents is in good hands and we will bring back this constituency to the level that it deserves to be at,” Salomon promised.

63 new members also joined the party during the event.
