Presidential Affairs Minister Frans Kapofi has described questions posed to him recently by DTA leader McHenry Venaani, as disrespectful and uncalled for.
Earlier this month, Venaani asked Kapofi, among other things, whether President Hage Geingob was trying to “save face” during his State of the Nation Address, when he said that “heads would roll” over alleged corruption linked to the National Oil Storage Facility.
During a question and answer session in parliament this afternoon, Kapofi said: “I am baffled and disheartened by Honourable Venaani’s insinuation that the president may not have been genuine, and that the remarks he made, regarding investigations (into the oil storage facility), were made to save face.
“In my view, these questions by Honourable Venaani are not only disrespectful, they are also uncalled for. With that in mind, I would appeal to the honourable members of this House that it is incumbent upon all of us, as lawmakers, and this includes the leader of the official opposition, to demonstrate the necessary level of respect and decorum, when we express our views and when we address our leaders, and each other.”
Venaani was not in the House when Kapofi spoke.
