Swapo takes party colours to Ombili

The ruling Swapo Party yesterday held their 'Swapo Party Colour Day', an event aimed at celebrating the party's colours and to show appreciation to its supporters, sympathisers and peace-loving Namibians.

The event, which was headlined by a plethora of motorbikes from the Eengoshi Bikers Club and Volkswagen GTIs took place at an open space in the Ombili informal settlement where individuals thronged in party colours celebrating.

Addressing the media, Swapo spokesperson Hilma Nicanor said the day was also meant to build momentum for the former liberation movement ahead of 27 November, when Namibia will hold its Presidential and National Assembly elections.

In terms of policy and what Swapo members should expect from the governing party, Nicanor said the message is that Swapo is a party created and established in the principle of the heroic struggle it fought, adding that this struggle was about Namibia and it about its people.

She also said Swapo is the only party that has an agenda to develop the country and has been doing so over the past 29 years.
