NDF pioneer General Amupolo remembered

06 August 2017 | Local News

Retired NDF general Martin Shalli has eulogised the late Brigadier-General Erasmus Kayambu Amupolo who died in a car accident on Thursday evening as a liberation struggle stalwart. Amupolo, who retired from the NDF in 2014, last served as head of the 26 Motorised Infantry Brigade in Grootfontein. “He was the greatest fighter of our liberation struggle and was a source of inspiration; he really was a good man, a great leader and a committed cadre of the liberation struggle,” said Shalli. Former PLAN commander and defence permanent secretary Erastus Negonga also paid tribute to the late Amupolo. “The country has lost a pioneer of the defence force. He was an easy guy and a brave commander and gave courage to his troops,” said Negonga.
