Some Swapo party members at Grootfontein on Friday staged a peaceful demonstration calling for the removal of their mayor, Thalita Garises. The Namibia press agency reports that the nearly 100 disgruntled members accused Garises of collaborating with the opposition political party local authority councillors at the municipality, alleging that Garises works more with the opposition councillors than her Swapo party colleagues. The aggrieved Swapo members further blamed Garises for the bad condition of the roads at the town, as she allegedly supports the suspension of the Chief Executive Officer.
