WINDHOEK, 05 NOV (NAMPA) - The President of the Republican Party (RP) has promised to improve the living conditions of the residents of Otjomuise's Aagste Laan residential area when he is elected to lead the country.
Henk Mudge who addressed his party supporters at a rally in the capital on Tuesday, said his government will be free from corruption and will stand up for the people at the grassroots level.
Although we have the knowledge to change this country, we cannot do it without your help. You, the people at the grassroots level, have the weapon in your hands. In the same manner that youve voted Swapo into power, you also have the power to vote them out of power, he said.
Mudge said the RP is firmly grounded on Christian principles, and is well positioned to solve the social and moral problems facing the country.
The Presidential and National Assembly elections are slated for 28 November this year. Mudge is contesting the presidential elections.
The RP leader also used the occasion to welcome Vistoh Sabisa of the Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) into the folds of the RP.
Sabisa is a former RDP Secretary for Information and Publicity.
Addressing the gathering, Sabisa said he agrees with the RPs approach of improving society by changing people's lives from the very bottom starting at the grassroots level.
He called on residents of Aagste Laan to vote for the RP, saying this is the only political party which represents the interests of the poor and the young.
The RP also introduced Carolina Panizza as its candidate for the Windhoek West Constituency by-elections, which is slated for 14 November this year.
Taking to the rostrum, Panizza promised to combat the skyrocketing crime rate, especially housebreaking and the killing of young mothers.
I will work closely with the Namibian Police to bring crime under control by increasing the efficiency of the satellite police stations in the location so as to enhance communal safety and the effective reporting of cases, she said.
She added that she will further improve the health and education standards in the country by personally engaging those responsible so that they can expedite the process of eradicating the use of alcohol and drugs in the country.
