MEMBERS of the Namibian Police had to intervene when the protest by activists against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence became unruly.
The protest descended into chaos after the protesters interrupted the Deputy Mayor of Windhoek, Clemencia Hanases during her speech.
“We want action, we don’t want speeches. It has been nine years. What has management done?” the crowd protested.
The vice president of the Namibian National Student Organisation (NANSO) Gregory Mida at one stage during a meeting in the assembly hall of the Jan Mohr Secondary School had to be escorted from the venue.
Officers on duty during the protest called the leaders of the activists together to request them to calm down.
Before the meeting was interrupted the inspector of Education, Milton Ya Otto announced that social workers and counsellors have been deployed at school for a week, to assist learners and teachers affected by the rape of a male learner by a teacher.
