WINDHOEK: The leadership of the Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP) lifted the suspension of three of the party’s leaders yesterday.
The suspended leaders – Mirjam Hamutenya, Peter Naholo and Kandy Nehova – were also reinstated in their respective positions within the opposition party.
This morning Windhoek-based lawyer Jens Roland, who represented the three suspended leaders, approached the Windhoek High Court with a request for the removal of the urgent application on the legal challenge over the suspensions, after the party’s top leadership took a decision to lift the suspensions.
The three were allegedly suspended over the botched demonstrations by the party held at the Supreme Court and Parliament Gardens here last month.
Roland explained that as per agreement reached between the RDP’s top leadership and the three suspended senior party leaders, the urgent application on the legal challenge over the suspension against the party (RDP) will no longer go ahead.
He said the three applicants in the case subsequently decided to withdraw the case against the party following the lifting of the suspensions.
