I am not going anywhere – Veikko Nekundi

by   Rodney Pienaar


Former Swapo Party Youth League (SPYL) acting secretary, Veikko Nekundi has said that he is not done with politics.

Nekundi has now taken a back seat after the appointment of a new SPYL leadership.

He, however, told The Villager that although he does not hold any portfolio at the moment, he will remain an active member of the SPYL.

“I am currently still a member of parliament. I am still a member of the SPYL,” Nekundi told The Villager in an interview yesterday.

He also said that he has faith in the new leadership because of past experiences while working with them while he was still secretary.

“What I can say about the new leadership is that they are also very experienced, trustworthy and very hardworking members of the party.

“There is no one new in the recently elected SPYL leadership. We all have to walk a very long road together as one party members.

“The SPYL has never been divided. I wish them a healthy and robust term in office in all their respective positions,” Nekundi said.

While the beliefs in the new team’s capabilities, he says, “What I can tell you is that being a secretary of SPYL is not an easy task at all. I was given the task and executed it very well.”

He said the trust put in the new leadership is by an individual but by the part of one group. Therefore, he is happy with the new setup.

Nekundi tells that although is still in the picture, he is spending his newfound freedom in Europe where he is exploring possible business areas to invest in.
