SWAPO presidential candidate Hage Geingob called for peaceful presidential and National Assembly elections when he addressed his party’s rally at Kamanjab on Sunday.
Swapo members and supporters thronged to the soccer field near the Daniel Okamaru Community Hall at the north-western village, where Geingob said elections must be held peacefully.
He declared that Swapo was the only party that can maintain peace and stability in the country, adding “We are not declaring war. We fought for internal elections; don’t be personal.”
He stated that Swapo is the party that brought peace and unity, and he will not stop talking about it.
“We are the ones maintaining peace. There are no wars; we hear what is happening in other countries. There are no refugees,” Geingob said.
The ruling party’s candidate also challenged his political opponents to talk about issues, and advised that they should play the ball and not the player, as they need to embrace each other when the elections are over.
“Many were angry after losing. Many are back. I am asking them to come back. Those who are outside, come in,” Geingob said of those who had left Swapo.
