The battle for the soul of Swapo
AS the current election campaigning gets into a high and hot gear to garner votes for the unprecedented number of political parties in Namibia, every potential voter is surely imagining the best outcome for him or her, depending on their respective parties and presidential candidate choice. Do you have a clear understanding on why you are going to make that particular choice? I wish to advise every Namibian to think with sound mind and not with emotions or anger triggered by personal circumstances and experiences. Social media is particularly rife, with some people taking swipes against Hage Geingob, therefore against Swapo – mostly for tribalistic reasons. They wish to blind people to Geingob‘s track record. President Geingob is well qualified to represent us at the helm after the first and second presidents. His track record is loud enough to shame the tribalists amidst us. He founded the Swapo representation at the United Nations (where I worked for two years) in New York. He was entrusted with the responsibility to establish from scratch the prestigious United Nations Institute of Namibia, in Lusaka Zambia (UNIN).
