Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Joel Kaapanda says innuendos by the media implicating Swapo members allegedly making threats against Prime Minister Dr Hage Geingob, are disturbing.
Newspaper reports recently carried articles on the alleged assassination attempts and possible harassment against Geingob, who is the likely successor to President Hifikepunye Pohamba.
In a statement today, Kaapanda urges Swapo Party members to distance themselves from the allegations made in the media, stating that the motive of an article in one of the dailies could only be 'designed to destabilize the party by sowing seeds of division and suspicion among its members'.
“The Government appeals to the Namibian public in particular and the Swapo members to remain calm and promote peace and stability in the country and to remain focused on issues of development and strengthen social harmony,” said Kaapanda.
Kaapanda stressed Swapo has a role to play in fostering development and national security and should not be destructed from national goals by 'allegations.
“The said article should be rejected with the contempt it deserves, he says.”
