Ekandjo also sent packing

01 February 2018 | Government

President Hage Geingob has also fired youth minister Jerry Ekandjo with immediate effect. Ekandjo contested Geingob for the Swapo presidency last year. Geingob eventually emerged as the winner. “The termination of your appointment should in no way be interpreted as a blight on the immense personal sacrifices, as well as the immeasurable contribution you have made in the interest of the Republic of Namibia, during our struggle for independence, as well as after independence. These are feats for which the people of Namibia shall always hold you in the highest regard,” Geingob wrote.
