17 July 2017 | Local News
The late Pretorius had moved to the coastal town after retiring from active politics in June 2013.
Pretorius served as a member of the Constituent Assembly, which drafted and adopted Namibia's Constitution, after the country's pre-independence election in November 1989.
Thereafter, he continued to serve as a member of the National Assembly from 1990 to 2005.
For the first 15 years in Parliament, Pretorius represented Action Christian National until the formation of the Monitor Action Group (MAG). He served as MP on the ticket of MAG for two terms.
Former president of the DTA of Namibia, Katuutire Kaura, also a founding member of the Constituent Assembly with the late Pretorius described him as someone who fully and completely stood for the protection of white interests.
According to Kaura, who now is an advisor to the Governor of the Kunene Region, Angelika Muharukua, the late Pretorius was very precise on motions he presented to parliament.
“At times his motions would not be well-received by some members of the house, but he would never back off to present it, as most of time his motions were well-researched,” Kaura narrated.
Burial arrangements are yet to be announced.
