The Swapo Politburo has gone along with President Hage Geingob by upholding his choice of the top three.

Geingob announced his choice -  Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, Sophia Shaningwa and Marco Hausiku - last week.

In a meeting held in Windhoek Thursday, secretary general Nangolo Mbumba nominated Geingob for party president.

Deputy secretary-general Laura Mcleod-Katjirua nominated Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah for the position of vice president.

Minister of Justice Albert Kawana nominated Urban and Rural Development Minister Sophia Shaningwa for party secretary-general.

State vice president Nickey Iyambo nominated former deputy Prime Minister Marco Hausiku.

All the four were not opposed.

The Villager understands that Jerry Ekandjo, Pendukeni Iivula-Ithana and Helmut Angula informed the Politburo that they would be nominated at the central committee meeting which is slated for this coming Sunday. 

It is understood that Nahas Angula proposed that the nominations be done at the central committee, although he did not announce that he will be nominated there.
