19 April 2018 | Politics
The party is celebrating its 58th anniversary today.
The Swapo party president used the anniversary to urge party members to rededicate themselves to working towards ensuring a better life for all Namibians.
“As we pause to reflect on the road travelled, honour our fallen comrades and compatriots who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our independence, we should think about the journey ahead. We should plan and work harder to meet the aspirations for a better tomorrow for the majority of our people,” said Geingob.
Geingob promised that Swapo, as an organisation, would continue to be an organisation of the people and would remain rooted in the destiny of the people.
“It is home for all Namibians. It is why the rank and file our party should commit to embody the values of unity, peace, patriotism, equality and equity.
Geingob also appealed to party members to work together, irrespective of rank, towards fighting corruption and inequality.
“As cadres, we must intensify efforts at all levels, within all structures and wings, towards serving our people with diligence and fighting the scourges of poverty, corruption and inequality,” said Geingob.
“Long live the Swapo party, happy birthday Swapo,” Geingob said in his letter to the party.
