Nandi-Ndaitwah applauds Okaku residents on the by-election


Swapo Party Vice President Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah has commended the residents of Okaku for once again putting their hopes and trust in the ruling party.

Her comments come after the Swapo candidate David Fillipus won the constituency's by-election that took place on Friday.

Nandi-Ndaitwah says Swapo's victory will allow the party to continue where it has left off in providing the much-needed development in the constituency.

It is also an indication that Swapo is a tested political party that is favored by many because it cares for the nation, she said.

Okaku by-election voters turnout a disappointment


By 5 p.m. today, about 2,700 people had cast their votes at 15 polling stations in Okaku.

The morning saw a good number of voters pass through, which slowed down later throughout the day at most polling stations.

The elderly dominated the numbers at most polling stations.

The ECN had hoped to reach a target of more than 6,000 voters. But that remains a matter of "wait and see." 

The counting should start tonight, but it is not yet clear if the results will be ready to be announced before the morning.

Okaku residents urged to deliever landslide victory

Scores of people from across the four northern regions and beyond donned in blue, red, and green converged at the village for the party's final rally and to show support for the party's candidate, David Fillipus.
