Violent confrontation over secessionism averted 

Breadcrumb

A series of anti-secession demonstrations, held under the Swapo Party, that have been taking place in the Zambezi Region nearly resulted in a violent confrontation this weekend at Linyanti Village.

A rival youth group, in support of the Zambezi Region's secesion from Namibia, organised themselves to stop the Swapo Party demonstration.

The police intervened just in time to avert a physical confrontation.

Swapo had been organising a series of demonstrations in all Zambezi constituencies denouncing secessionist activities.
