Omaheke Swapo court case dismissed

by Staff Writer

Omaheke Swapo Party delegates to the congress who were dragged before the High Court in an attempt to prevent them from attending congress emerged victorious, after the High Court dismissed the application.

Deputy Judge President Hosea Angula dismissed an application by four Swapo Party members in their attempt to prevent selected delegates from attending the Swapo conference.

In their application, Kejamuina Mungendje, Maleagi Ndisiro, Frans Murangi and Progarius Muriambihu were suing the Swapo Party and its wings as well as 76 other Swapo members.

The court ordered that the application which was filed on 2 November is dismissed and costs shall stand over to 28 March 2018 for delivery of the judgement hearing.

The applicants wanted a court order to declare the Aminus district conference, Kalahari extra-ordinary district conference (later conceded), Okorukambe extra-ordinary district conference, Otjinene district conference and the Omaheke regional conferences (together with the party Political Bureau endorsement) null and void.

They also sought an order to prevent 27 of defendants from attending the congress. 

These applicants have also sought an order in which they should be absolved from the cost of the proceedings if they are unsuccessful in their application.

The respondents were represented by James Diedericks, Gilroy Kasper, Dirk Conradie and Norman Tjombe.

The applicants were represented by Kadhila Amoomo.
