      Swapo demands Hengari apology

      by Lugeretzia Kooper

      APOLOGISE ... Regional Swapo Zambezi coordinator Moffat Sileze during a press conference today at Katima Mulilo demanded an apology from the president's press secretary.

      THE Zambezi regional Swapo leadership is demanding an apology from the president's press secretary for his recent remarks regarding solidarity demonstrations after four fishermen were shot by the Botswana Defence Force (BDF).

      In a statement issued by the office of the press secretary on 12 November it was suggested that the solidarity demonstrations were pointless and misplaced.

      During a press conference held today, regional Swapo coordinator Moffat Sileze said Alfedo Hengari should withdraw his reckless statement and apologise to the nation, and especially to the residents of the Zambezi region.

      "We feel his statement was insensitive and inappropriate. It was his duty to calm the situation by assuring the nation that the matter is receiving the utmost from the presidency as it deserved," he said.

      Sileze said the Namibian Defence Force (NDF) and special field force should be provided with resources to establish their presence in hotspots along Namibia and Botswana's borders with immediate effect.

      "This way citizens will be protected from intimidation and terror they suffer from the Botswana Defense Force (BDF).

      "It will also restore the territorial integrity of the Land of the Brave," he said.

      Sileze said they have noticed with great concern that opportunistic political parties and misguided people in society is using the current tragedy to incite violence and encourage people not to exercise their democratic right to vote.

      "We would like to encourage the masses not to be persuaded by these opportunistic and misguided elements, but to practise unity and solidarity shown by our people during these tough times," he said.
