OTJIWARONGO: A Swapo-Party leader in the Otjiwarongo Region expressed happiness with the new national leader assigned to their region.
Swapo’s Political Bureau announced a new list of national leaders for the country’s 13 regions and two special areas on Monday, and according to the list, Nahas Angula replaced Richard Kamwi as chairperson of the national leaders for the Otjozondjupa Region.
Otjozondjupa Regional Swapo-Party Co-ordinator, Susan Hikopua told Nampa today that she is happy with the new development, saying it was an appropriate change, because Comrade Nahas Angula is a senior political leader in their party.
She accused Kamwi of having stifled political activities in the Otjozondjupa Region during the 2012 Swapo-Party restructuring exercise, which was nullified four times under Kamwi’s chairmanship.
Hikopua said the Otjozondjupa Regional Swapo-Party executive committee on 28 October 2012 even demanded, through a vote of no confidence, that Kamwi be removed as chairperson of the national leaders.
