Broad Based Organisation - SWAPO Party of Namibia

Written by  Jan 26, 2015

SWAPO PARTY of Namibia is a dynamic. Its structure is that of broad based organization and it is truly a mass movement. In SWAPO we find:

  • All Namibian tribal and indigenous groups
  • Workers
  • Students
  • Women and children
  • People with disabilities
  • Church groups
  • Intellectuals
  • Teachers
  • Peasants

SWAPO PARTY is a home for all Namibians. With this status, no one can by-pass this broad movement . It is too broad to and comprehensive be wished away. It is all over. It vehement the souls of the nation. It is a significant political force on the Namibian landscape.There is no choice but to recognize this undeniable fact.  

 SWAPO PARTY of Namibia, apart from being the ruling party in the Republic of Namibia, it boasts of lively structures all over the country:

  • Cell
  • Section
  • Branch
  • District
  • Region
  • National

 The SWAPO PARTY Extra Ordinary Congress in 2004 notably attracted everybody's attention. All eyes of the International Community were focused on Namibia. The business people, the investors, the tourists, all were eagerly awaiting the results of the Congress. The Congress had the potential of strengthening or derailing democracy in this country. This demonstrates in no uncertain terms, the political power of the mighty SWAPO PARTY of Namibia. This is not the case with any of the few opposition parties in Namibia. They know that SWAPO is a political force to reckon with. The power of this party lies in the fact that it is deeply rooted in the people, in the masses, including the illiterate. They are SWAPO and they own it.

It is therefore important for all SWAPO mobilisers never to discriminate, but to mobilise all sections, sectors and parts of our motherland. It is their task to show them the way to a greater Namibian home, called SWAPO.

As a Party that is progressive in its approach and political philosophy, SWAPO refuses to be drawn into tribal and sectional politics. For SWAPO, the following are among other enemies of the people:

  • Tribalism
  • Regionalism
  • Apartheid; colonialism; neo-colonialism and imperialism
  • Individualism; egocentricity
  • Favouritism
  • Ethnicity
  • Unpatriotism
  • Reactionary
    Among others, the following are friends of the Namibian people;
  • Altruism
  • Patriotism
  • Pan-Africanism
  • Un-blind nationalism
  • Internationalism
  • Equality and Equity

Only if all these are embodied in an organization can it be regarded as a real driving force for progress and change. Within the Namibian political arena, SWAPO PARTY of Namibia boasts of these values and qualities. The people in SWAPO, the supporters, followers, rank and file members, the leadership, everybody, must of necessity, posses these qualities.
