Some of the comrades who lost to President Hage Geingob's slate in November last year have written to Swapo Party secretary-general seeking an independent audit to be done on congress results.

Geingob's slate - Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah (vice president), Sophia Shaningwa (secretary general) and Marco Hausiku (deputy secretary general) - emerged victorious against the now disbanded Team Swapo during the elective congress.
In the letter dated 12 February and addressed to Shaningwa, the four Swapo members said there were several irregularities before the congress but these were ignored in the name of unity.
The four - Mirjam Shituula, Selma Namboga, Nambata Angula and Seth Boois - said the audit should be conducted either by a judge or a team of lawyers with powers to subpoena witnesses.
