Ondonga throne heirs seek interdict

05 April 2019 | Justice

Two heirs apparent to the Ondonga throne yesterday sought an urgent application in the High Court to interdict fellow aspirant Fillemon Shuumbwa Nangolo from acting as if he is the appointed successor to the late Omukwaniilwa Immanuel Kauluma Elifas. Oscar Sheehama and Konisa Eino Kalenga have applied for an urgent High Court interdict to restrain Nangolo, who was in 2002 named as successor to Elifas, from purporting in any way to be the successor of the late king. Among the 18 respondents is Nangolo, the Ondonga Traditional Authority and the ministry of urban and rural development. Elifas died on 26 March and will be laid to rest next weekend at Olukonda.
