The Affirmative Repositioning Movement has demanded that former chief of the Namibian Defence Force Martin Shali withdraw utterances of political intimidation, allegedly made at a Swapo rally at Okahandja on Saturday, while Popular Democratic Movement president McHenry Venaani expressed his disappointment and said it was unconstitutional and flies against Article 17 of the supreme law of the land. The Namibia press agency reports that in a video spreading like wildfire, Shali – dressed in colors of the ruling Swapo Party – can be heard saying: “They [political opponents] must be killed, but they must not be shot, they must be slaughtered”. AR is reportedly prepared to face Shali in court, should he not cede their demand but Shali stood his ground, saying all he did was mobilise support for his party using a “figure of speech”.
