Ex-SWATF/Koevoet threats tantamount to treason: Ndeitunga

Threats by former South-West Africa Territorial Force (SWATF)/Koevoet members to spill blood if their demands are not met are tantamount to treason, Inspector-General of the Namibian Police Force, Lieutenant-General Sebastian Ndeitunga has said.

More than 30 former members of the Namibia War Veterans's Trust (Namvet) have now formed the Namvet Liberation Movement and on Monday met in Windhoek, where they made the threats.

Their demands include being recognised as war veterans, which would amongst others mean they are entitled to pensions.
