WINDHOEK: Former President Dr Sam Nujoma has called on the Swapo-Party Youth League (SPYL) to strive towards self-sustainability by engaging in profitable and honest business activities.
Nujoma said the Swapo Party has successfully liberated the Namibian people and the country from the yoke of colonialism, with the participation and support of many young Namibians.
He was speaking during a SPYL fundraising gala dinner yesterday evening in the capital, ahead of the Fifth National SPYL Congress scheduled to take place towards the end of this month.
The Father of the Namibian Nation then called on the youth to be at the forefront of the country’s struggle for economic independence, saying it is time that they, as a motherbody and its wings, strive towards self-sustainability through engagement in profitable and honest business activities.
He then called on SPYL members and those of the motherbody, Swapo, to support the wing’s fundraising initiatives by generously ploughing back into the party and its wings to ensure the continuity of their activities.
2 (WINDHOEK) – The National Union of Namibian Workers (NUNW) has called on the public to mobilise for a protest against the legal challenge on labour hire brought by the Namibia Employers’ Federation (NEF) and its affected members.
NUNW Secretary-General Evilastus Kaaronda yesterday accused the NEF of being opposed to the new regulation of labour hire after the organisation itself called for its regulation.
He said during a media conference that all workers must challenge the audacity of the NEF and its affected members, and remind them that they are the ones that called for the regulation of labour hire, and now that labour hire is regulated, they simply do not like the nature of the regulation.
Kaaronda accused employers who are taking advantage of the current uproar created by the misinformation drive of the NEF to lay off workers, just to teach Government and trade unions a lesson.
NUNW, therefore, called on the NEF to behave like responsible citizens, and channel their concerns through the appropriate structures.
