Former official opposition party, Rally for Democracy and Progress (RDP), was thrown into turmoil on Thursday following the resignation of its President,
Jeremiah Nambinga, and three other leaders.
Nambinga announced his resignation as party president at his residence in Windhoek.
He said disputes and factions within the party had forced him to resign from his position.
Nambinga will, however, remain an ordinary member of RDP.
Helao Nafidi Town Councillor, Vilho Shimooshili, also resigned from the party as well as from his position.
Others who are said to have resigned are the party’s district secretary for Omulonga, Tuhafeni Nghiwanapo, and Ohangwena district secretary, Timo Shikongo.
