Nudo congress in limbo


The third elective congress of the National Unity Democratic Organisation (Nudo) has been thrown into disarray as 120 blocked delegates have decided to resort to an urgent court interdict to prevent it from going ahead.

The urgent application will be filed Thursday morning.

This comes amid concerns of mushrooming Nudo branches in places where the party never had a constituency or vote in the past.

According to ‘Team Nudo’ secretary general (SG) candidate Joseph Kauandenge, among others, 88 delegates from the Aminuis Constituency were barred from attending the congress.
