ONGWEDIVA, 24 SEP (NAMPA) - The Swapo-Party Youth League (SPYL) in the Oshikoto Region has called on the youth in the region to “shame” opposition parties by giving them a 'zero vote' in the November elections.
SPYL Secretary for Information and Mobilisation, Edward Gabriel made the call in a telephonic interview with Nampa from Tsumeb on Wednesday.
The Oshikoto SPYL leadership held a consultative meeting in Tsumeb on Tuesday to prepare itself for the Presidential and National Assembly Elections set for November this year.
Gabriel urged the Oshikoto youth, especially those who are members of the Swapo-Party, to refrain from giving drinking water to members of the opposition parties who will be busy campaigning in their region.
“Don’t give them water. Don’t give them any vote, let them be shamed since they are non-peace loving citizens, and don’t listen to their hopeless promises,” he said.
Gabriel wants the young persons of that region to only vote for the Swapo-Party and its presidential candidate, Dr Hage Geingob during the elections.
“As we now heading to the polls on 28 and 29 November 2014, I would like to appeal to all the youth in our Oshikoto Region to prepare their voters’ cards and make sure that we avail ourselves to the nearest polling station and vote for Swapo-Party,” he stated.
President Hifikepunye Pohamba has not yet announced the elections’ date.
Gabriel suggested that the Swapo-Party youth conduct violence-free election campaigns in the Oshikoto Region, and urged all regional leaders to fully support the party’s candidates for the National Assembly seats.
