      VICE president Nangolo Mbumba has advised Namibians not to be servants of those who were close to the apartheid regime.

      He was speaking at a Swapo rally at Khorixas last Sunday.

      Asked by The Namibian to clarify what he meant by others, Mbumba said later in the week he had meant those closed to the previous regime (before independence).

      "We cannot be servants of other people. We can serve our own people," Mbumba told the rally at Eddie Bowel Primary School sports field at the north-western town.

      "We elected leaders to serve ourselves," he said. 

      "We cannot be servants of other people. We cannot be slaves of other people and the only way not to be slaves of anybody is to educate your child, send your child to school," he added.

      The vice president saidt by sending children to school, they will be able to defend their own rights and those of others.

      Mbumba said some people who occupy top positions in society think things should remain the same. "Their children should go to good schools. Every child, every Namibian child should go to the best schools."

      Mbumba call upon Namibians to fight inequality and that Swapo is ready to lead them.

      "Swapo has been ready since the day of independence, even before the day independence it was ready to make sure that the South African apartheid regime and its forces will never return to Namibia. That promise we have kept it,".
