Swapo would appreciate Seibeb’s return – Shaningwa

Swapo secretary general Sophia Shaningwa says the party would appreciate former Landless People’s Movement (LPM) deputy president Henny Seibeb’s return.

Seibeb, alongside another LPM member of parliament, Edson Isaaks, resigned from the LPM and the parliament on Tuesday.

Shaningwa has dismissed allegations that Seibeb has been offered a position in Swapo prior to his resignation.

“Those who allege that honourable Seibeb resigned because he was offered a position by Swapo are completely wrong,” she says.

Shaningwa, however, says Seibeb is a “Swapo child”.

“He just realised it is time for him to go back home and contribute meaningfully to real matters concerning our people and our country’s development,” she says.

Shaningwa says Seibeb is a product of Swapo and is “deeply concerned” about the well-being of Namibians.

“If he resigned to come back to Swapo his return would be highly appreciated,” she says.

Shaningwa believes “thousands” would return to Swapo.
