Geingob, Mbumba and SWAPO Constitution

Fear in leadership leads to insecurity. Then, defensive mechanisms are promptly employed and deployed to silence dissenting views. Namibia’s third President, Dr Hage Geingob, is not doing very badly. But he is not doing very well either. Very often, he comes across as extremely insecure and angry. Insecurity at the top can result in flawed judgments and decisions, which taint leadership.

DTA leader, McHenry Venaani, has blasted President Hage Geingob for using his Independence Day speech in Rundu this week to attack his political enemies, saying that he should rather use SWAPO rallies, and not national holidays, to lash out at his critics.
