An insight into inner Pohamba

Last week, co-founder and director of the Windhoek Observer, Lazarus Jacobs (LJ) and Editor-in-Chief, Kuvee Kangueehi (KK), had a reflective, sincere, and insightful interview with the distinguished former President, Hifikepunye Pohamba (HP).

Pohamba left behind a mess - Job

Firebrand youth politician, Job Amupanda, has launched a scathing attack on former President, Hifikepunye Pohamba, saying that the elderly statesman had “left the party in a mess”, when he resigned as SWAPO president in April 2015. Amupanda, who has expressed an interest in running for either the SWAPO presidency or vice presidency posts at the upcoming ruling party congress, also accused Pohamba of being a “president in absentia”, during his ten years as Head of State from 21 March 2005 to 21 March 2015.
