People want recognition before and after elections – Nandi-Ndaitwah

Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah

Swapo vice president Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah has instructed branch coordinators and mobilisers to not only engage the electorate in election years.

She was speaking at the party’s workshop for district coordinators and information and mobilisation officers on Wednesday.

This comes a few weeks after Swapo branch coordinator Bonifatius Munango was slapped by a Mix settlement resident, saying the party does not live up to its promises, and only returns to the area when campaigning for elections.

“Our engagement with the community will not end with elections. It must be a continuous responsibility to be in contact with our people.

“People want to be recognised. People want to be heard. Whatever you get from the people, you pass it on to the next level of leadership until it reaches the government,” she said.

The one-day workshop is meant to inform district coordinators on national programmes, such as on infrastructure, drought and budget priorities.
