RUNDU, 21 NOV (NAMPA) Former Deputy Prime Minister, Marco Hausiku said him running for the Swapo deputy secretary-general (SG) position is in the interest of the party and the people.
It is not about me as Hausiku; I will come and pass. It is about the party and the people, he told the gathering during a Team Harambee campaign rally here on Monday.
Hausiku, who is currently the Swapo Party School rector, said accepting to contest the position at the upcoming congress was a principled decision.
He assured delegates to the congress that he has been working for the party and for the government for many years.
Hausiku said the main aim at congress is victory for Team Harambee, which includes Namibian President Hage Geingob, who is campaigning for the party presidency.
The final is in the ballot box and the fight is with the votes, concluded Hausiku.
About 2 000 people attended the campaign event of the Kavango East, Kavango West and Zambezi regions.
These included 32 delegates from Kavango East, 38 from Kavango West as well as 42 delegates from Zambezi who will attend the party's sixth ordinary congress from Thursday to Sunday in Windhoek, where elections for the party leadership will take place.
