Mushelenga suspended from veterans' association

15 October 2013 | Government

The national coordinator of the Namibia National Liberation Veterans' Association (NNLVA), Nkrumah Mushelenga, has been suspended from that position since June this year. This followed a recommendation by the NNLVA executive committee, under the chairmanship of Raonga Jesaja Andima, at a meeting held in Windhoek on May 20. “The above recommendation was discussed and made a resolution at the meeting held on the 10th of June 2013, which you attended in person,” stated the letter of suspension issued to Mushelenga on June 18. The letter, which is in the possession of Nampa, indicated that the NNLVA executive committee resolved to suspend Mushelenga indefinitely for alleged “unbecoming behaviour detrimental to the interest of the association”. Mushelenga's suspension means that he may not engage in activities in the name of or on behalf of the NNLVA. “You are further instructed to return to the office all materials, documents and items, if any, which were entrusted to you in your capacity as a member of the executive committee,” the suspension letter read. The NNLVA executive committee also recommended that Mushelenga's membership of the association should not be affected by the suspension. The association also instructed Mushelenga to return all items given to him by the Namibian Defence Force (NDF) in the name of the NNLVA within 14 days of receiving the suspension letter. A committee was to be appointed to investigate the allegations against Mushelenga. Approached for comment yesterday, Mushelenga confirmed his suspension but said no committee has been set up to investigate the allegations. Mushelenga claimed that the NNLVA executive committee decided to sideline him because of false accusations that he planned to demand the election of new executive committee members. Andima was not immediately available for comment. ONGWEDIVA NAMPA
