Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah

Swapo vice president Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah says the party is determined to ensure the country’s natural resources are exploited for the benefit of all Namibians.

In a statement released to mark Swapo’s 64th anniversary, Nandi-Ndaitwah paid homage to contemporary revolutionaries, alive and departed, including Sam Nujoma, Hifikepunye Pohamba, Brenden Simbwaye, Tobias Hainyeko, Peter Nanyemba, Getrud Kandanga, Peter Mweshinge, Moses Garoeb, Andimba Toivo ya Toivo, Dimo Hamaambo, Marco Hausiku and Hage Geingob, among others.

“Many have been maimed, others have paid the ultimate price during the long and bitter struggle for our freedom and independence, we salute them all,” Nandi-Ndaitwah says.

According to Nandi-Ndaitwah, Swapo is determined to continue with implementation of policies aimed at the socio-economic transformation of society.

“Swapo is focused to ensure sustainable utilisation of our natural resources and work on local content to create more economic opportunities for all Namibians and expand the social safety nets. Swapo is focused and determined to ensure youth employment and youth empowerment, being one of the best ways to fight poverty.”

“Just as we won the struggle for political freedom, Swapo shall win the struggle for economic independence. With the new industries emerging, such as oil and gas and green hydrogen, reinforcing the traditional industries in our country, we have all the tools to look after our nation and to make Namibia the best place for all her people.”
