Page 9 Ondonga chief to appear in court Nuusita Ashipala Ondangwa Ondonga chief Immanuel Kauluma Elifas is expected to appear in the Oshakati High Court to validate the thumb stamp signature on several Swapo warns Geingob ‘decampaigners’ Selma Ikela Windhoek Authors of SMS and Whatsapp messages against President Hage Geingob, his wife Monica Geingos, several ministers and individuals have been warned their time is running out and they will soon be exposed. They will be named and shamed, warned Swapo Party Khomas regional coordinator Elliot Mbako during a press conference in Windhoek on Friday. Of late social media has been abuzz with messages authored by unidentified people who insult the president, ministers and several individuals. Mbako said he has observed in recent times how some people, mostly the educated and the well-to-do, even in Khomas Region, but predominantly in other structures of Swapo Party, through their degrees, their money and their flagrant disrespect towards leadership and authority, are trying their level best to destabilize and destroy Swapo from within. SWAPO on page 2 documents that saw the dismissal of eight traditional councillors Enlightening a fully packed Oluno Hall at Ondangwa on Saturday on the status of the cases launched against Elifas, the defence lawyer of the axed traditional councillor, Elize Angula, from AngulaCo firm, said the expulsion of her clients was unlawful and un-procedural and hence holds no water. Angula questioned the existence of a certificate which authenticates such stamp and informed the Selma Ikela Windhoek meeting that another case is expected to be filed in court this week to prevent such stamp and signature to be finalised, until the court has pronounced itself on the matter. Angula further questioned how an established, recognised authority such as Ondonga communicates such vital decisions taken, through social media, adding that her clients Kasuto not aware of suspension from NUNW NUNW president Ismael Kasuto ONDONGA on page 2 National Union of Namibian Workers (NUNW) president Ismael Kasuto says he is not aware of his formal suspension as its president by the central executive committee, except from what he has picked up on social media concerning an unsigned letter on a vote of no confidence. Kasuto explained that he temporarily excused himself to preside over this past Saturday’s special central executive committee (CEC) meeting held at the NUNW office because as union president he insisted the meeting be properly constituted (in terms of the NUNW constitution). Kasuto said he excused himself not to attend what he termed an “unconstitutional meeting”. “And that was not a vote of no confidence to totally remove me from office,” Kasuto said, adding that he would issue a press release today in his capacity as NUNW president.
