Swapo sold out: Swartbooi


Former deputy land reform minister and leader of the Landless People's Movement (LPM), Bernadus Swartbooi lashed out at the ruling Swapo Party, saying Namibia's independence was gained through a compromise and not a revolution as purported.

Swartbooi made these remarks at a press conference on Monday, just a few days after comments made by Minister of Land Reform, Utoni Nujoma, in an interview with a South African broadcaster. The minister had detailed how Swapo reached a compromise on land ownership in the run up to Namibia’s independence.

Nudo irked by Nujoma’s remarks


The National Democratic Unity Organisation (Nudo) has said it is disheartened by Land Reform Minister Utoni Nujoma's remarks in a recent interview with South African broadcaster eNCA.

In an interview aired last week, Nujoma said: "You cannot bring in a person from an informal settlement, put him there and hope that he will succeed to farm. We would like to resettle people who will really make a significant contribution to the GDP."

Nudo said his statement is proof that the government is 'against poor Namibians"
