The Executive Director of the Swapo Party Austin Samupwa told Future Media News that President Hage Geingob’s comments about white Namibians registering themselves to vote in the upcoming regional and local elections had been received out of context. Samupwa insisted that the president’s statement was justified and was not targeted at all white people in Namibia, just those he said had been against Swapo since before independence, and as such it would be unfair to expect him to apologise.
