Trade minister, Tjekero Tweya, who made headlines this week for criticizing his colleagues in the cabinet has come out to add that he was not afraid of being cut off from President Hage Geingob’s next administration.
The President has indicated that not everyone will make it in his next cabinet and has also told ministers who air strong views outside cabinet to resign.
Tweya said while ministers were talking about Harambee (pulling in one direction) in front of cameras, there was no unity behind the scenes.
“No-no-no. I say my mandate is industrialization, promote trade after manufacturing and then to promote the small and medium enterprises and I am not operating in a vacuum. We are operating in a team and it’s my responsibility that when other instances are hindering us (we) move as a team, to express that and say things have changed, the time has changed, let us move this side and not to say no no no, otherwise, I will be chopped. It’s not about “chopped”. It’s about doing the right thing,” he said.
