THE Namibia Economic Freedom Fighters (NEFF) has nominated 46 year old, Festus Shaduva, as the candidate for Oshakati East by-election scheduled for August this year.
Announcing the candidate, NEFF Policy Research and Political Education, Commissar Abraham Ndumbu, said NEFF through its structure have identified a potential candidate that is suitable for Oshakati East constituency.
“We have the right candidate and has the capacity to work with communities in projects of any kind. The abilities in him cannot be compromised as he has values that can be shared and be used,” said Ndumbu.
NEFF national coordinator, Kalimbo Iipumbu, said that will also partake in the upcoming November election, as its part of the part mandate to partake in any activities.
He also stated that they have not been off the grid, but slide lined by many media houses, who had refuse to publish their activities.
“If we don’t get publish despite having press conferences people will continue to ask if we still exist or not,” he noted.
Meanwhile, Shaduva, said he is ready to campaign, but his campaign is not necessary to fight anyone. Adding that he aims for proper governance of Oshakati East.
The Oshakati East Constituency by-election was necessitated by the death of former councillor, Lotto Kuushomwa, in May.
Kuushomwa collapsed in the National Council (NC), where he was a member representing the Oshana Region, and was declared dead upon arrival at a Windhoek Hospital.
