MUN to appoint a acting president next year


The Mineworkers Union of Namibia (MUN) will appoint an acting president for the organisation early next year, following the death of its president Raimo Hausiku.

Hausiku died in a car accident between Okahandja and Otjiwarongo on 21 November.

In an interview with Nampa on Monday, MUN General Secretary Ebben Zarondo said in the interim, the union’s current vice president, Desley Somseb, will act in the position.

The union’s national executive committee (NEC) will meet next year and decide on the way forward.

“The NEC has the authority to appoint for an acting role only. A meeting is scheduled to take place late January or early February next year to discuss this matter,” said Zarondo.

According to the MUN constitution, the congress where the president is elected along with other office-bearers, takes place every five years.

The last congress took place in 2015 and the next one is expected to take place in 2020. Hausiku was elected into his position in October last year.

He was laid to rest at Nkurenkuru in Kavango West on Saturday.
