Swapo CC candidates want recount halt

Africa-Press – Namibia. Three Swapo central committee members-elect are demanding that the party’s secretary general, Sophia Shaningwa, should set aside the party’s top four leaders’ decision to recount, verify and certify the Swapo congress’ central committee election results.

The three are Omusati governor Erginus Endjala and former deputy ministers Tommy Nambahu and Paulus Kapia.

The three party members, through their lawyer, Kadhila Amoomo, are also demanding that the returning officer for Swapo’s congress elections, lawyer Joshua Kaumbi, should stop implementing the decision to recount, verify and certify central committee election results.

A decision to recount and verify votes cast to elect a new Swapo central committee was taken by party president Hage Geingob, newly re-elected Swapo vice president Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, Shaningwa and her deputy, Uahekua Herunga, this week.

Endjala, Kapia and Nambahu are claiming that the decision taken by the four Swapo leaders is unlawful and saying that only the party’s congress, central committee or politburo are empowered to hear an election petition.
