Shinduvi elected Swapo's Kavango East regional coordinator
RUNDU, 16 JUL (NAMPA) - Otillie Shinduvi was elected Swapo’s regional coordinator for Kavango East during the party’s elective conference at Rundu on Saturday.
Shinduvi replaces Marcelline Kahare, who served in that position for the past five years.
The regional conference also elected Bonifasius Wakudumo as mobiliser and Pontianus Musore as treasurer for Kavango East.
Ten delegates who will attend the party’s National Congress later this year will be elected at the Extra-Ordinary Regional Conference on 19 August 2017.
Shinduvi thanked the delegates for electing the new party representatives.
“Let us start afresh. Let us not look at which tribe we come from, but rather work together as members of the Swapo Party,” she said.
Shinduvi called on the delegates to forget the “bad words” that may have been exchanged before the election and continue to work together for the good of the party.
“Let us work together. When you observe the mistakes we make, feel free to approach and correct us,” she said.
Chairperson of the national leaders assigned to the region, John Mutorwa said they were there to oversee the selection of candidates in terms of public procedure so as to keep the democratic culture alive.
The conference was attended by assigned leaders such as Minister of Presidential Affairs, Frans Kapofi, Members of Parliament, Johanna Kandjimi, Annakleta Shikerete, Doreen Sioka and Governor of the Kavango East Region, Samuel Mbambo.
Close to 54 delegates took part in the conference.
