      Anti-BDF protesters want Nandi-Ndaitwah out

      by Ester Mbathera

      Ebben Kalondo, an official in the office of the Erongo governor, receives the petition that Franco Kolofu handed over on behalf of residents of Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, who are protesting against the killing of people along the border between Namibian and Botswana.

      A GROUP of Swakopmund and Walvis Bay residents called on president Hage Geingob to replace the current minister of international relations and cooperation, saying she has failed the nation dismally.

      This was one of the demands in a petition they handed over to the governor of the Erongo region at Swakopmund today.

      Reading the petition on behalf of the group, Franco Kolofu accused minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah of putting foreign countries' matters above those of her own country.

      This after her recent condemnation of Morocco with regards to the Central African Republic.

      “One disturbing observation is that this is the minister who has been very quick in condemning military aggression in other parts of the world,” said Kolofu.

      The group demanded the immediate closure of the Botswana high commission's offices, as well the dry port at Walvis Bay, which they say should only be opened once the president of Botswana has formally apologised to Namibia.

      “Botswana is a neighbouring country that has taken advantage of our generosity in the spirit of SADC. These facilities must remain closed at least until we have received a formal apology from the president of that country on the latest senseless killings of the four fishermen,” Kolofu said.

      "We demand that the apology must come through the high commissioner to Botswana – not through our president," he said.

      The group also demanded the immediate establishment of military bases along the stretch of common border between Namibia and Botswana.

      They demanded the immediate deployment of Namibian Defence Force patrols along the border to reassure and restore the safety of people living along border rivers.

      Ebben Kalondo, an official in the office of the governor of the Erongo region, received the petition on behalf of the governor.
