The Economic and Social Justice Trust has written to the Minister of Poverty Eradication and Social Welfare, Zephania Kameeta to rally behind the group and impose a purchase boycott against Shoprite-Checkers group of companies.

In the letter, Chairperson of the Economic and Social Justice Trust Hebert Jauch wrote that the Shoprite-Checks group of companies had been characterised by poor and exploitative labour practices in Namibia as it has been in other countries in Southern Africa.
