Swapo keeps its promises - Namoloh

Swapo is the only political party in Namibia that keeps its promises, says the Minister of Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development, Charles Namoloh.
Namoloh was speaking at a Swapo rally at Etanga village, 100km west of Opuwo, on Saturday.
He also welcomed 60 new members to the party from villages situated around Etanga.
“The Swapo Party accounts for its promises. Unlike other parties that dream of what they want to do, Swapo has delivered, and it will continue to do so while improving if given the mandate,” he said.

N$10m lawsuit struck off the roll

A N$10 million lawsuit, instituted by Israeli Boris Bannai against the government for wrongful arrest, has been struck off the High Court roll after he failed to provide N$700 000 as security for the State’s legal costs.
A foreign senior counsel, who is an expert in extradition law, is set to lead government defence against the lawsuit. Hence, the N$700 000 was needed as security.
Bannai, who is the owner of the Purity Manganese (Pty) Ltd, was not in court yesterday when Judge Dave Smuts ordered that the matter be struck off the roll.

Namoloh suspended the entire seven-member council without pay for failing to follow directives from his office.
