SOME members of the Swapo party in Walvis Bay district are calling for the heads of rural and urban district coordinators Paulus Kauhondamwa and Risto Nambombola, according to a petition written to the Swapo secretary general Nangolo Mbumba.
The petition which has 64 signatories stated that the two are unfit to hold such powerful positions, have failed to carry out their obligations and are making decisions that other members feel will have a negative impact.
”We the Walvis Bay community members believe that the Walvis Bay Swapo party district coordinators rural and urban, Cde Paulus Kauhondamwa (rural district) and Cde Risto Nambombola (urban) are no longer deemed fit to hold the positions because they are inadequate… are failing to carry out obligations and are making decisions that other members feel are detrimental.
”These comrades have divided and created function groups among the Swapo party members to feed their own interests,” the petition reads.
The petition also cites that the two are undermining the party constitution, creating hatred among party members by de-campaigning some of the members, insulting party members and suspending some branches willy nilly.
Contacted for comment Nambombola denied allegations levelled against him saying that whoever is accusing him of operating out of his mandate was out to tarnish his name; adding that that calls for him and his colleagues to be removed were motivated by “factionalism”.
“There is no incident reported to me or to the district executive that I have done something wrong and I am not aware that of the petition. I would like to see the petition,” he said.
Kauhondamwa said he was in a meeting and could not comment, while Mbumba claimed that he had not received the petition.
