Too late for LPM to ride on public sympathy- Analysts

New entrant to the political scene, the Landless People’s Movement, no longer has the advantage to ride on public sympathy following the dramatic exit from Swapo and government of its founder, Bernadus Swartbooi, and will need to pull up their socks to land parliamentary seats, analysts have said. 

Swartbooi garnered public sympathy following his fall out with his then senior, Lands Minister Utoni Nujoma, whom he accused of parceling out Namas/Damaras’ ancestral land to northerners and his being fired by President Hage Geingob.
