Presidency cautions Dr Geingob’s impersonators

Staff Writer

The Presidency is worried by individuals impersonating the President, Dr Hage G. Geingob to Influence the SWAPO Party 7th Congress delegates calling them to desist from such “Illegal acts”.

The Presidency in a media release refers to “individuals who are fraudulently claiming to be President Hage G. Geingob and calling SWAPO Party delegates to the 7th Congress, purportedly asking them to vote for certain candidates.” It reminds the public impersonating the President or any other person is criminal conduct and punishable by law appealing to the public or delegates to the SWAPO Party not to believe such claims by any person misrepresenting himself or herself by claiming to be the President. Stating it categorically that President Geingob has not called any Congress delegates to influence them in favour of any candidate.

The Presidency says for reasons soundly elaborated, President Geingob has communicated his decision not to endorse any candidate for the positions to be contested at the forthcoming 7th SWAPO Party Congress convening from 25-27 November 2022. Thus emphasising the principle of playing the ball and not the man or woman. “President Geingob believes in fair play, as well as transparent and free elections, in which losers accept defeat and winners act with dignity,” the release reads.
