Namibia: President addresses ultimate rally

Namibia's President Hifikepunye Pohamba's is expected to address his last political rally as Head of State at Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek tomorrow which is expected to attract more than 30 000 of the ruling Swapo supporters. Prime Minister Dr Hage Geingob is the revolutionary party's presidential candidate and will take over from President Pohamba who has served Namibia for a mandatory two terms.
Namibians go to their sixth general election on Friday next week and there are over 15 opposition political parties in the country.
The party's secretary-general, Cde Nangolo Mbumba, said in an interview yesterday that the stage was set for the country's biggest campaign rally, where praise singers from the Ndilimani Cultural Troupe are expected to entertain the crowd.
He said Foreign Affairs Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah would co-ordinate the proceedings.
Swapo has held 30 rallies in this election, where President Pohamba, founding father Dr Sam Nujoma and Dr Geingob were the key speakers in different regions.
"We have covered a lot of ground in terms of preparations and we are expecting a full house," said Cde Mbumba.
"People should attend in their numbers.
"President Pohamba will be the main speaker of the day (tomorrow) and he would focus on issues related to our election manifesto which seeks to consolidate peace, stability and prosperity."
Cde Mbumba said they were expecting President Pohamba to give highlights on Swapo's successes in education, health, infrastructure development, continued quality service delivery, economic stability and unity.
