Analysts claim that the ruling Swapo Party is at a crossroads, with its 2022 interparty elective congress being the ultimate defining moment for the former liberation movement. The ruling party, they say can either regroup, rebuild, and return to its former glory days or continue limping further into deterioration, depression, and decay before disappearing into thin political air. “It [congress] is going to be a make or break if it is not handled in a manner that brings people together,” said Ndumba Kamwanyah, while Natjirikasorua Tjirera explained that the party’s fate is in the hands of those leading it, and it is “up to them to significantly try and shape the party to make it appealable to the greater community, especially the young people and elderly voters”.
