Namibia Presidency-Opposition Leader, McHenry Venaani is ill-placed to lecture President Dr Hage G. Geingob on Governance

AFRICA, NAMIBIA, POLITICS
Opposition Leader, McHenry Venaani is ill-placed to lecture President Dr Hage G. Geingob on Governance. President Hage G.

This is consistent with the clarion call of « No one should feel left out ». It is regrettable that the Leader of the Official Opposition, in attempts at self-elevation always seeks to claim easy victories and clumsy pub...
