Kavango remains loyal to Geingob

29 November 2019 | Politics

Preliminary election results in constituencies in the two Kavango regions yesterday showed landslide victories for both President Hage Geingob and Swapo.

However, this has led to much ire on social media, with memes even emerging of the two Kavango regions being excluded from the map of Namibia.

Geingob and independent candidate Panduleni Itula are involved in a brutal battle for State House, while opposition parties, especially the Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) and Landless People's Movement (LPM) have, at least according to yesterday's preliminary results, made inroads in Swapo strongholds.

However, the preliminary results in Kavango East and Kavango West show both the party and Geingob still have overwhelming support.

In the Rundu Urban constituency Geingob scooped 13 464 votes out of 17 402 votes, while Itula garnered 2 565 votes.

In the same constituency Swapo scooped 81% of the 17 381 (14 065 votes), followed by the PDM with 1 185 votes.

In the Rundu Rural constituency Geingob and Swapo also emerged victorious in both the presidential and National Assembly polls.

Geingob scooped 2 699 votes out of the 3 098 cast, followed by Itula with a mere 136 votes.

As for the National Assembly election results for the Rundu Rural Constituency, Swapo scooped 2 631 votes out of the 3 101 votes cast, followed by the All People's Party (APP) with 229 votes.
