OUTJO, 16 NOV (NAMPA) – A Swapo Central Committee member, Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila on Sunday urged her party members in the Kunene Region to avoid provocative acts against the opposition political parties in that region.
“If you feel provoked by the opposition party members, report their acts to the nearest police station,” she said at a Swapo star rally that was held at Etoshapoort Sports Field in Outjo.
Kuugongelwa-Amadhila is also a member of the Swapo Party Politburo.
She said Swapo is a political party that brought peace and unity to the country, adding that her party believes in democracy, therefore, provocative acts are against the tradition of Swapo.
It was at the same rally where Kuugongelwa-Amadhila had welcomed three new members – three from the United Democratic Front (UDF), and one from the Congress of Democrats (CoD).
In her welcoming remarks to the trio she said their decision to join the Swapo Party was the right one, adding they should bring along their family members to also join the political party.
Kuugongelwa-Amadhila urged all Swapo members in the Kunene Region to go out in large numbers and cast their votes for the party’s candidates in the upcoming Regional Council and Local Authority Elections.
Eligible voters will on 27 November 2015 hit the polls to elect regional and local authority councillors, who are mandated with initiating development in their towns and constituencies.
The Swapo Party candidate for the Outjo Constituency, Johannes Antsino, was also introduced to the audience by Kuugongelwa-Amadhila.
The 37-year-old Antsino is the Swapo-Party Youth League (SPYL) Secretary for Information and Publicity in the Kunene Region.
Outgoing Outjo Regional Constituency Councillor, Abraham Job also attended the rally.
