Dr Hage Geingob in his capacity as the President of the SWAPO Party congratulated all members and supporters of the movement on the day that the organisation celebrates 63 years of existence.
Geingob called the SWAPO Party a glorious movement that was formed with the mission of liberating Namibians from Apartheid oppression.
“SWAPO succeeded in that historic mission. Over the past 33 years, SWAPO has been hard at work to unite and to ensure the economic development of Namibia,” he said
He said that the party will continue to work hard to complete the mission of socio-economic well-being for all Namibians.
“On this historic day, I wish the rank and file of our victorious movement a happy 63rd anniversary,” he said.
In the same vein the Secretary General of the ruling party, Sophia Shaningwa on the anniversary said that at the height of the Apartheid regime’s practice of labour exploitation and colonialism, the brave sons and daughters of the country convened in Windhoek to form the movement that unified all Namibians in the Liberation Struggle.
“On this day, we pay tribute to the gallant sons and daughters, heroes and heroines and to all the people of Namibia whose contributions shaped the mighty Swapo Party over the past 63 years,” she said.
Shaningwa said that the legacy of the ruling party is a story of selfless sacrifices of the masses, with many having paid the ultimate price for freedom.
“Our revolutionary tale is one of the resilience and triumph of the spirited African people. We pay homage to all revolutionaries who have contributed towards the rich heritage of the SWAPO Party,” she said.
She said that the ruling party will remain committed to fulfilling the noble responsibility and is humbled by the continued generous support of the Namibian People.
“It is an honour and privilege we have and we shall never take it for granted,” she said.
Shaningwa wised the organisation’s entire leadership, rank and file members, supporters and sympathisers a truly revolutionary Happy Birthday.
The Secretary-General used the opportunity to cordially invite all Namibians to the SWAPO Party’s birthday party that will be held at the Omulunga Stadium in Grootfontein this coming Saturday.
She said the celebrations will be conducted under the theme of “Swapo Party United for Inclusive Development and Shared Prosperity”.
