The National Assembly has adopted a motion addressing the inclusion of Namibian former mine workers in southern Africa for compensation.
The motion was moved by Swapo Party MP Sebastiaan Karupu, who urged the house to directly adopt the motion to avoid referrals to the standing committee, citing potential delays and resource constraints.
"The vice president of the facility in SA reached out, representing former mine workers across southern Africa, already initiating efforts independently. I implore this house to be a beacon of justice and compassion. Let us not subject the predicament of Namibian former mine workers in South Africa to bureaucratic delays. The motion enjoys overwhelming support; let us stand united and promptly adopt it to ensure timely relief for those who have long awaited justice."
